Glee: Should Brittany and Sam Be Together? We Weigh the Pros and Cons

It's the Glee pairing no one, and everyone, saw coming. Ever since co-creator Ryan Murphy first tweeted a picture of Brittany (Heather Morris ) and Sam (Chord Overstreet ) in wedding-like garb with the caption "wedding of the year" last month, some fans have been waiting in eager anticipation for the new McKinley couple to get together. Meanwhile others have been bracing for what they have since dubbed the "Brampocalypse" . Even Brittany herself — in a hilarious fourth-wall-breaking incident — admitted she was hesitant to commit to Sam for fear the lesbians of the nation would turn on him, "get really violent and hurt your beautiful face and mouth," as Brittany so eloquently put it. After watching Brittany fall head over heels for Santana (Naya Rivera ), is now the time for her to move on — and with a member of the opposite sex? We weigh the pros and cons of one of Glee's most controversial couples. Ian Somerhalder? Sofia Vergara? Make your picks for TV's sexiest eye candy now!

PRO: Sam gets Brittany That may sound cheesy, but Brittany is a hard nut to crack, no matter how dim she may (or may not) be. When Brittany suffered her sententa coffee-fueled downward spiral in "Britney 2.0," Sam was the only who was able to convince her to put down the cheesy puffs and get her act together.

CON: There's no good 'shipper name for Sam and Brittany Finchel, Klaine, Brittana, Wemma, Chang Squared, Puckleberry — Glee fans have been all about the 'shipper names since Day 1. But there doesn't seem to be an easy or obvious way to combine Sam and Brittany's names. Bram sounds a little boring and a little intense, while Samtanny sounds like the name of a new My Little Pony character. We're confident Glee fans will rectify this in due time, but the clock is ticking.

PRO: They're the comic relief of the show Glee has had to juggle many story lines this year — Rachel and Kurt's struggles in New York, Marley's eating disorder, Ryder's dyslexia — but most of them have been heavy on the drama and light on the laughs. Luckily, Morris continues to have the show's best one-liners (sorry, Sue!) and the writers have given Overstreet ample time to show off his knack for impressions. In the wake of this season's romantic bloodbath in "The Break-Up" episode, why not put these two together and bring some cheer?

CON: They're the comic relief of the show Then again, is it wise to have two of the show's strongest comedic talents paired up with each other? Maybe if Brittany turned her attention to Joe (Samuel Larsen) she could actually get him to smile. Or maybe she and Artie could get back together and Artie could get some lines again! (Kevin McHale 's comedic chops have been greatly underused this year.) And although it might sound like an odd match, if there is anyone that could get Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz ) out of her b----y phase, it would be Sam.

PRO: Santana needs to move on As much as Santana's biting one-liners and beautiful vocals are missed in the choir room, the show needs to stop conjuring up convoluted ways to drag her back to McKinley. As much as she hated to admit it, Santana loved being in glee club, but is there really any college freshman, especially one on a full cheerleading scholarship, who would jump at the chance to stay home with mom and dad and act in the high school musical? Short answer: no. The Lima Heights Adjacent native is way too cool for that, and if Brittany finally moves on with Sam, maybe Santana can also move on and start worrying about more important things  like following her dreams and moving to New York City.

CON: Brittana is too important a relationship to end Brittany said it herself in last week's episode when she initially told Sam she couldn't be with him because of "all of the lesbians of the nation" tweeting at her and posting mean messages on Lord Tubbington's Facebook wall. "I think its means a lot to them to see two super-hot popular girls in love," she said. Despite the hilarious "Brampocalypse" name, the lesbian community's argument is a sound one: After seeing everything Brittany and Santana had to endure to be in an open lesbian relationship in suburban Ohio, why would the Glee writers just undo that progress now? Santana had to bear the brute of the difficulties, thanks to her discerning abuela and that horrible political campaign ad, but Brittany struggled with her feelings for her BFF as well. Aside from Glee, Grey's Anatomy and The New Normal (another Murphy creation, natch), there are a scarce number of lesbian couples on TV, which makes Brittana all the more important.

PRO: TV could use a few more bisexuals It took viewers at least two seasons to wrap their heads around the fact that Kalinda likes girls and guys on The Good Wife , and our favorite private investigator could use some back-up in her corner. If Brittany really has feelings for Sam the way she did for Santana, why not let Glee travel into new territory and depict a bisexual teenage struggling with her sexual identity just as Kurt and Santana did so memorably in Seasons 2 and 3, respectively?

CON: Brittany and Sam share a common thread Isn't it a tiny bit weird that they both dated Santana?
