Recap

The episode begins with the previous year’s seniors (except for Kurt and Rachael) singing “Home” and they all look great together. They are all back home for their holidays; just as they promised. Group hug! Next, we hear Marley’s voiceover telling us about her and her mom’s diet. She tells us that she wants to be her best for the Sectionals. She feels that the whole team is depending on her and that she cannot let them down. The group is having drinks at a pub and Finn tells them that he wants a favor from them. Finn then pairs the seniors with the new kids: Jake is with brother Puck, Wade with Mercedes, Marley with Santana, Mike with Ryder and Kitty with her favorite Quinn. ..

Episode Notes
None of the cast had a background in Korean, they had to learn to sing Gangnam style phonetically.

This was the worst rated competition episode in Glee history.

Episode Quotes
Marley: I thought your parents didn't want you wearing...

Unique: They don't. They're trying to protect me. But what they need to understand is if I'm not being true to myself at least when I'm performing then there won't be anything left inside me to protect. So they can keep talking about sending me to a camp for little boys who like to wear dresses, but I will not and cannot be ashamed of who I am or how I look.
