Last night's Glee was the show's strongest in a long, long time, with October 4's "Asian F" a close second and the rest of the episodes far, far behind, particularly last week's torturously awful "Pot O'Gold." "The First Time" and "Asian F" had all the elements that make for a strong Glee showing, which are elements that are important for just about any show: actual human emotions, characters motivated by credible wants, stakes, realizations, genuine drama. It was a total treat! But the recent good episodes are notable for what they didn't include, too. Namely: Sue Sylvester.
