Glee season 4 is celebrating the holidays with the November 29 episode, "Thanksgiving," and the December 13 episode, "Glee, Actually," and FOX has released episode descriptions for both.
"Thanksgiving" Episode Synopsis
"It's time for Sectionals, and New Directions receives guidance from some of the recent McKinley graduates who volunteer to mentor the glee club during their Thanksgiving breaks. Meanwhile, Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) have a non-traditional holiday dinner in the Big Apple."
While some familiar faces will be back for Thanksgiving, Rachel and Kurt won't be among them, and they'll be spending it in New York, so it sounds like not every reunion will be coming so fast. Spoilers have already revealed that Quinn will be mentoring Kitty. With Sectionals coming up, it's the perfect time for those who were Nationals champions to offer some advice since there are several new members. It's likely that will go over with some members better than with others.
"Glee, Actually" Episode Synopsis
"In a tribute to the film "Love, Actually," seemingly separate storylines come together as one holiday-themed episode, in which Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Brittany (Heather Morris) live their lives to the fullest before the much-heralded Mayan Apocalypse occurs. Meanwhile, Jake (Jacob Artist) and Puck (Mark Salling) spend quality sibling time together for Hanukah, Artie (Kevin McHale) has a holiday dream that changes his outlook on life and Kurt has a Christmas he'll never forget."
Meanwhile, considering how popular Love, Actually is and given that the cast of the FOX series is large enough to pull off just this type of story, it seemed like just a matter of time before this type of episode. Could the "Mayan Apocalypse" be the explanation for the photo Ryan Murphy tweeted of a wedding? Also coming up in this episode is Jake's mother, played by Aisha Tyler, so that holiday get-together should be pretty interesting. So far Puck only briefly returned to McKinley and talked to his half-brother, so it should be good to see the brothers spend some time togetherÂ—and hopefully that will be drama-free.
