In an homage to the beloved holiday film "Love, Actually," seemingly separate storylines come together to form one merry GLEE episode. As the end of 2012 draws near, Sam and Brittany live their lives to the fullest before the Mayan Apocalypse occurs. Meanwhile, Jake and Puck spend quality sibling time together for Hanukah, Artie has a holiday dream that changes his outlook on life and Kurt has a Christmas he'll never forget.

The episode begins with Sue writing her journal. She pens down the magic of Christmas and also mentions about the movie “Love Actually” which is often shown on cable. Next, in the hallway we see that Artie has hurt himself and Finn asks him what happened. He tells Finn that his wheel chair has no chain and so he fell backwards and hurt himself. Finn takes him to the nurse’s office and she goes to call Artie’s mother. Artie tells Finn that he is tired of feeling helpless every time and that this time few girls had to help him back on the chair. Finn puts Artie to bed, and Artie immediately dozes off wishing that he weren’t tied to that dumb chair. ..
