Jessalyn Gilsig Preps Glee Fans for "Sweet" Return of Terri Schuester

by at . Comments

Terri Schuester is returning to Glee. Consider yourself warned.

On tonight's episode, the character nurses a sick Will in bed, a development Jessalyn Gilsig understands not all viewers will be pleased to see.

"She and Will get to kind of quietly be together, the way they must have been before everything blew up," Gilsig tells TV Guide. "It's really sweet... whether or not it's healthy."

As Terri Schuester

Gilsig signed on to remain a series regular over the summer, but has only appeared in one episode of season two. The actress says she was surprised that she was brought back at all because "Terri's not integrated in the school, so it was hard to see how she would hang around."

So, how does Terri integrate herself into action at school? By cozying up to someone new at William McKinley. What, did you think Terri was finished with her scheming ways?

"Crazy as she is, Will is the love of her life," Gilsig says. "I think if you look at it like that, she's just a woman in love. In that way, she's a little sympathetic."

Look for this character's slightly devious game plan to be revealed on the show's 10th episode of this season.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


Glee Club is officially over. Thank you guys. It’s been an honor.
