'Glee': Who Else Should Defect to Shelby's Group?

We're only three episodes into Glee 's third season and it's already been a tumultuous journey for New Directions. In the premiere, Sam, Lauren and Quinn all quit while Santana was kicked out and Blaine joined the group. Then Quinn rejoined, and, in this week's episode, Santana came back (thus totally negating the first episode).

Glee Return Preview: Sue Sylvester Versus...

The latest episode Glee did not satisfy our Editor-in-Chief, who found it to be a heavy-handed hot mess .

'Glee': Emma's parents, ginger supremacists, explain everything

It's no secret that Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays) is an aggravated, if cute, ball of emotion and OCD all wrapped up in adorable retro outfits.

"You give that skinny GrrAnimal wearing a**-kisser everything. I've outgrown you. I've outgrown all of you." -- Mercedes JonesMercedes (Amber Riley) has been singing in the shadow of Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) for two-plus seasons, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that at some point, that volcano was gonna go. And on Tuesday's (Oct. 4) episode, Mercedes finally blew her top.And, as we mentioned in our previous Mike Chang love letter, "Glee" is so back, we're starting to think the second season was just a bad dream.Anyhow, back to Mercedes -- she went head-to-head with Rachel for the lead in "West Side Story" and when she wasn't satisfied with the outcome -- double-casting -- she stormed out of New Directions and offered her "star power" to Shelby's (Idina Menzel's) second school glee club.The fact that we're so conflicted about this is proof positive that Ryan Murphy and his new writing team are...
