I thought it was funny when Megan left ... Kelly just had this expression on her face and said "I was just lectured." I think it's about time you got some feedback from those you let go. I know it's her job to make the team the best ever, but a little constructive criticism can go a long way if someone is mature enough to take it. Reading between Megan's hurt were a few gems of wisdom.
I like Brooke too, and was sad to see that this was her last season. I wonder what would happen if - one year - the only ones to try out were those who have never had a cheer or dance class. I'd love to see Judy and Kelly deal with that.
