Jane Lynch (as Sue Sylvester)

Sue Sylvester Character Biography

Sue and Will become unlikely allies when Principal Figgins hires Shannon Beiste to coach the football team and cuts the Cheerios and New Directions' budgets. But when Sue's plot against Coach Beiste backfires, she becomes even more determined to take down the glee club.

Sue continues to show a softer side in her relationships with her sister and her Cheerios sidekick, Becky, who both have Down syndrome. Still, she doesn't stop waging attacks on Will. And when Sue becomes acting principal, she uses her new authority to try to disband the football team.

After a go at online dating, Sue realizes that her only perfect match is, in fact, Sue Sylvester. So she decides to get married to herself.

Sue comes up with a plan for the most exciting Cheerios routine ever, which involves firing Brittany from a cannon. When Brittany refuses, Quinn and Santana quit the Cheerios with her in protest. The squad is defeated at nationals in what would have been Sue's seventh consecutive title, and the team's budget shifts to the glee club.

Now more vindictive than ever, Sue amps up her plots against New Directions by becoming coach of rival show choir Aural Intensity; she also tells the competing Warblers that New Directions is "turning up the sexy" at regionals. Then after the McKinley glee club's win at the competition, she decides to create a "League of Evil" to destroy them once and for all.
