Glee Glee, Actually
14 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Sue writes in her about Christmas and Love, Actually. Artie comes into school after falling on the ice wishing he had never been the chair. He goes to sleep waking up in a black and white universe where he can walk and does not need glasses. Rory comes back as Artie's Christmas angel granting him the wish to walk on his legs again. Rory brings Artie through the school as he sees everything that has changed when he walks. He sees that Kurt is bullied by all the football team. All the things that happened because Artie can walk seem impossible. Including Rachel as a Liberian Will still married to his ex wife who actually did have the baby. Rory tells Artie he was the one that held the club together. He then sings for everybody to try make them join back the club, he sings "Feliz Navidad". No one is made to join back not even Rachel. Artie then wakes up in normal time back to normal as if nothing had changed. Story 2 and we find Rachel going back to Lima to visit her fathers. A knock comes at the door and it is Bert making a surprise visit with a tree. Bert and Kurt decorate the tree while Rachel leaves to go on her cruise with her dads. Bert and Kurt go have some hot Choco late and Bert tells Kurt that he has prostate cancer that was caught early. Bert and Kurt decide to exchange their gifts and Bert gives Kurt the gift of bringing Blaine with him to New York. The two then sing their yearly duet which this year is "White Christmas". Back in McKinely the two Puckerman boys decide to go on a trip to California. To be known they are Jewish the two half brothers breakout singing "Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah". They keep going through the big Hollywood set singing together. Noah and Jake decide to have their mothers meet each other. Everyone is able to forgive as they blame in all on the man that ran out on them. Brittany believes the world is ending using her savings to make her friends enjoy their final days. Sam believes her so they plan out to tell everyone the truth. The try to tell everyone the truth but no one wants to hear them. Sam then decides to sing "Jingle Bell Rock" for Brittany. After singing Sam asks to marry her. Beastie then lets the two get married because she also believes the world is going to end. The two become married and seem very happy about spending their last three days with each other. The world does not end and Brittany/Sam are still married. Sue gets a secret Santa and it's Marley's mom. Sue overhears Marley and her mom taking about not having the right about of money to celebrate Christmas properly. Marley then sings "The First Noël" as a gift for her mom. Marley and her mom wake up on Christmas to find that there are gifts a money left for them by Sue. Noah is moving back home and Beastie gives Brittany/Sam a new end of the word date. In New York Blaine, Kurt and Bert sit on the coach together. Blaine is planning to get into NYADA. Sue is then brought into the auditorium to watch a performance of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" just for her. Everyone joins in to sing with Marley and the glee club. OK episode but I do think the story approach that it decided to take did not work that well.

EPISODE GRADE: C- (MVP: Chris Colfer)
