Glee Thanksgiving
1 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Quinn returns to McKinley with every other graduating senior including Puke, Santana, Mike and Merecedes. Everyone embraces Quinn for finally coming back top join the others singing "Homeward Bound/Home". Marley is starting to feel the pressure of sectionals. The returning graduates come back and Finn brings them to glee club to try help the new ones. Finn pairs up all the new members with coaches bringing up the glee club doing Gangnam style for their closing number. In New York Rachel and Kurt celebrate their thanksgiving in the city even though are some people calling them home. Finn and Mike do some dancing with the glee members where Ryder gets the male lead in the final number. To teach the females of glee the original threesome of Quinn, Santana and Brittany give them a performance of "Come See About Me". Kitty is in love with Quinn and really wants to be like her. In Rachel's new class Brody teaches instead of Cassandra and she does not want to be anywhere near him. When Brody has nothing to do he gets invited to Thanksgiving with Rachel and Kurt. Quinn tells Jake to stay away from the innocent Marley. While leaving work Kurt invites Isabelle and some friends to thanksgiving with him and Rachel. Isabelle try's to give Kurt some advice about dealing with Blaine. Santana comes in to talk to Quinn about Kitty but it turns into the two fighting over who is more miserable. The both slap each other just as Brittany walks in. While Ryder is practicing his main lead Jake walks in to try help him with his problems with the song. Jake then tells Ryder he is trained in ballet and that he could do the song better. Back in New York Brody and Rachel continues their tension they do not act on. Glee circle goes on with old and new members. The first glee club up is the Dalton Club Warbblers singing "Whistle" and "Live While We're Young". Just as thanksgiving dinner seems normal some of Isabelle's friends come in and they all break into song singing "Let's Have a Kiki/Turkey Lurkey Time". The second glee club come out to sing like normal unknown glee clubs who usually sing somethings weird and unmemorable. Just as New Directions are about to go on stage Kurt calls Blaine wanting to talk. They both bring each other to tears but their relationship seems better due to the advice of Isabelle. Marley finally tells someone the truth about her problems telling Jake it will be her problem if the show fails. The glee club sing their version of "Gangnam Style". Just before the end of the song Marley faints to the floor. Good episode and once again another appearance by SJP is sweet because of how nice she is to Kurt. Also for how much I hate Gangnam it wasn't that bad.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Chris Colfer)
