Beiste's character doesn't seem to have a huge level of self-esteem and (from what we know of) friends outside of the school so the fact that she'd disclose what she did to the girls, perhaps viewing them as daughters, sisters or friends, seems completely likely also. Again, I don't find it professional but realistically, does happen. It was way too much information to tell a student in my opinion.

@sandrakim - sorry but ??? In the pilot? Yes they did. Yes the rest of the cast of characters make up the show as well but from the very first episode the central characters were Rachel and Finn with Will and Sue in supporting roles. Watch it again :) Along the way of course other characters have been focused on but it will, not to my huge liking, and until either actor leaves the series, be about Rachel and Finn. I wish it was ALL about Santana. She's my favourite but sadly it's not.
@ Miranda - I hear what you're saying but I still found that the portrayal of Beiste was realistic. Even with the fact that WHILE she was going through her trauma she informed the girls. Many, many teachers really cling to their students as if they were their friends, family or children and thus disclose trivial information to them as it is happening. I'll agree that I personally think it isn't right but still must point out that I don't find it a stretch from what a given, real, teacher would do. Beiste's character doesn't seem to have a huge deal of self esteem and (that we know of) friends outside of McKinley High so in particular the fact that she may view those girls as her younger sisters, daughters or friends is then completely founded in why she is so open with them. If I was one of the girls however I would of totally told her or the principal, TMI :)

I've been griping since day one that Finn's voice was thin/tinny/pinched and not deserving of a lead singer role, better suited for a harmony part in a boy band. Then in this episode he channels Meatloaf. OMG! Awesome job!
I'm rather a Meatloaf purist, I usually can't stand it when less talented performers butcher his songs, but I'll give the Glee kids a pass, they did an outstanding job! Altogether, for this and a few other things already mentioned, an excellent pair of episodes.

Whoopie did an excellent job playing a hard-arsed director, yet she reminded me of Maya Angelou...I hope to see more of her in the next season.BTW, my son's second grade (!) teacher used to complain to her students about her divorce and ask their advice all the time, and she talked to them about having been pregnant and miscarriage, and all sorts of other personal things, and no, she was not fired and still works at the same elementary school.So it does happen that teachers tell students about their personal lives.

I LOVED both episodes of Glee, though I have to say I was actually glad that they didn't have the "Freaky Friday" character switch go beyond the first third of the episode, because it was just a bit too creepy and cheesy watching the actors play one another, especially Puck and Finn as Blaine and Kurt...ewww. I adored the fact that Tina got some much deserved solo music and screen time, though, and I thought Coach Bieste and Puck totally KILLED their scene together, and I think we do need more of Dot Marie next season...that woman can SING, ya'all! I loved, loved, loved Nationals and the way ND won, Rachel's solo, loved Will and Emma getting together, Wills much deserved teacher of the year award (Come ON people, he inspired those misfit kids to dream big, to honor their talent, to care for each other and to become champions! That is worth a huge award, because he was helping them learn to become confident adults) and Rachel's NYADA audition via Nationals. Whoopie did an excellent job playing a hard-arsed director, yet she reminded me of Maya Angelou...I hope to see more of her in the next season.BTW, my son's second grade (!) teacher used to complain to her students about her divorce and ask their advice all the time, and she talked to them about having been pregnant and miscarriage, and all sorts of other personal things, and no, she was not fired and still works at the same elementary school.So it does happen that teachers tell students about their personal lives.

Loved everything about it. One of the best ever of Glee. Performances/acting/music. Everything. Not one disappointment. No PSA's. Acceptance fullfilled by the ND and Mr Shuester.

Slightly off-topic, but TV Fanatic, could you somehow give us a choice on your comment threads between reading oldest to newest vs. newest to oldest?

I'm someone who likes to read oldest first, so I can follow people's remarks to other comments. To do that, I have to go to the end of the thread and read backwards [up].

Most other sites I visit give the reader a choice -- just toggle.

Could you do that for us?

Beside commenting on anything else... I just want to say that I adore Rachel Berry. I get that many are actually annoyed by this girl because of the extra spotlight she gets and the whining and begging and everybody seems to support her... I used to have the same opinion but honestly, her solo on "It's All Coming Back To Me Now" punched me so hard that I cried half of the song.. She gets all the spotlight because she earns it, and she's gifted, and she works ten times harder than anybody else... I agree there are more talented members than Rachel, but Rachel tops all of them with her strong drive and commitment.

So cheers for Ms. Berry...
