First: What a terrible character name,

Second: What happened to her character this week? She went from bitch to Rachel's BFF faster than Blaine re-gels his hair! Anyone else confused why? Yes, she's been tough on Rachel, supposedly to make her better. But she's always been a total bitch! (Can I say that on BWW?!)

Anyways, thoughts? I think the Glee writers had one too many drinks.

Rachel gave up Brody, therefore Cassandra is back in the sling saddle.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I think it's just a cliche straight from stories about overbearing fathers and Russian ballet teachers: the person who tears you down really has your best interests at heart.

Coming right after a scene where Cassandra went off on Rachel's personal appearance first thing in the morning, the whole, "But you made me better" speech wasn't very convincing to me.

I've had some very demanding teachers, ones I admired so deeply I stayed up for days at a time to perfect papers for them. None of them attacked me personally; rather they set high standards and articulated them clearly so students knew where the goal line was located.

But then I've wondered all season how Cassandra keeps her job and why Rachel thinks Cassandra is one of "the best"?

And why is Rachel all "Oh Mr. Shu you're the first one I'm telling" Doesn't she have an acting and a singing teacher at NYADA? Time to let Mr. Shu go.

Goth, they seem to be straining to write scenes for Mr. Shu. I guess he doesn't have a disability, so he isn't "special".

And Matt Morrison looks like he's counting the days until his contract is up. I bet when Artie moves to Brooklyn Film Academy, Mr. Shu will go along too. Every character seems to be gravitating to NYC

And Darren Criss needs to tell them to stop with the wussification of Blaine. When we first met Blaine, he was strong and independent. Now he's like a 1950s housewife, just wanting to get married and not think about a career.

ALL of the gays on this show want to get married. They strive to be heteronormative. Just like how Karofsky dreamt of his life in 10 years (or whatever) having a "partner" and 2.5 kids.

I liked the Blaine/Burt scene.

Blaine: I want to marry Kurt.

Burt: But just last week you were trying to jump Sam's bones.
