She asks the Glee boys to donate to the local sperm bank in order for her to select a suitable father. In On My Way, Sue informs Quinn that she is pregnant and that the baby's father is a celebrity.

In Big Brother, Sue discovers that the baby is a girl and has some abnormalities. Becky comes to Sue and she tells Sue that she heard about the baby's condition. She tells Sue to be patient with her.

Britney 2.0

Robin doesn't make an appearance, but when Sue shows evidence that Brittany is failing her tests and is a bad example for the cheerios, Sue holds up Brittany's algebra sheet, to which Brittany got an F- for writing "see other side" to all the answers. On "the other side" is a picture of "Happyville" Brittany drew. She says that Sue can see Brittany and Santana, Kurt, and Rachel and then Sue can see a drawing that Brittany made of Sue and Robin. Sue admits that she let her pregnancy hormones control her, letting Brittany slide academically.

Makeover

Robin doesn't make an appearance but Sue puts on Will's résumé that Will took Robin out of Sue with his bare hands even though it was a lie, so that he could easily get out of McKinley on a show choir committee trip. She comments that for the first time, she wants him out of McKinley in a good way.

The Role You Were Born to Play

Robin does not make an appearance, but when Finn casts Wade/Unique as Rizzo in the school production of Grease, Sue won't allow it. She puts up a fight with Figgins, Will, and Finn. In Figgins office, Sue continues to fight. But when Finn has enough, he yells at Sue and says he thought she was a better underdog, helping New Directions win Nationals the previous year and having a "retarded baby" referring to Robin. This throws Sue in an angry fit and makes Finn her enemy. This has obviously been a wrong choice of words.

Later when Kitty finds out that she is cast as Patty Simcox, she goes off in a rage and Sue says to her that Robin needs to be fed.
