After a failed attempt to make it as an actress, Rachel comes to Lima, only to find out that the arts are completely vanished from McKinley. Now she finds herself in the position of taking over the Glee club, because Mr. Schue is leading Vocal Adrenaline now and Blaine is leading The Warblers.
Rachel proposes an idea to Mr. Shuester in order to improve the club's chance at the invitational. Meanwhile, Sue conjures up a plan (with the unintentional help of Sam) to destroy the Glee club once again.
Will takes desperate measures to teach the bullies of Vocal Adrenaline about tolerance. Meanwhile, New Directions rallies to help Rachel transition into her new life when she finds out her childhood home has been sold.
