Yet, there is a really sweet bit between Sue and Emma where Sue explains why she is asking for Will's swimmers. Sue's words are sincere and heartfelt. While Emma is still not comfortable with the arrangement, suddenly fans can get on board with a Sue/Will baby. Then the plot is abandoned without explanation, when Sue says that she has found another donor. She gave up so easily? Who's the new daddy? So, again, erratic, and strange.
If the writers can decide which version of Sue they'd like to right for, please let us know. It would be nice to have a consistent character. There is a difference between have a layered persona, and acting contrary to established behavior patterns, and "The Spanish Teacher" definitely achieves the latter.
Which means between the music, Sue's story, Will's character, Mercedes's decision, and everything else going on, "The Spanish Teacher" comes across as a garbled mess. Not one of Glee's best efforts, unfortunately, though it contains a handful of solid moments.
