Mark, You say that Rachel was being infantile because she was complaining about not having a solo that was never promised to her. I'd just like to point out that she WAS promised the solo. Mr Shue planned to have her singing until Emma pointed out that it was the same formula as last years sectionals, and that was when he changed things. (The fact that any teacher would change a song list/singers that close to the competition is ridiculous, so I actually agreed with Rachel being annoyed about it, though I agree that the tape thing took it way too far! And as a side note, it was still the same formula, just with different singers....so if he thought he was 'changing things up' he wasn't.) On to the latest episode - Best, and most apt line, given recent epsisodes, was Rachel's - 'I can't believe that that teacher let those students speak to us like that.' However, it was nice to have a Rachel-bullying free episode. The Brittany storyline was absolutely adorable, she's a complete sweetheart, and her and Artie together may be the sweetest thing ever. All her lines were absolute magic, and the fact that everyone worked so hard to keep her believing in Santa was brilliant. Sue having a change of heart was lovely, and Artie getting to walk again was so touching (maybe not realistic, but when has Glee ever been that concerned with being realistic lol). The Coach is fantastic, a much better character than Ken Tanaka ever was, and it's a pleasure to watch her on-screen. The songs were great, I liked all of them, but the best one for me was when the whole glee club sang in the staffroom. It was so great to see them singing together (given the complete mess that were the songs at Sectionals) and it was beautiful. I still think that Rachel should not have to be continually apologising to Finn, mainly because I believe they both have things to apologise for, and he was hideous in the last episode. I still maintain that he needs to get off his high horse, but that's another story. That was probably the only thing that bothered me in this episode. I dont care that they broke up for real, because he's a complete tool. When he stops whining, and being so hypocritical, then maybe I'll be able to stand him again. Till then... (Just for the record, the scene between Rachel and Finn was very well done - I think they both did an excellent job acting that scene.) Overall, this was a huge step up from last week. Sure, there wasn't a lot of plot or character development, but it was a sweet episode and miles better than last week. It even left me excited for when the show returns again! Considering how much I loathed 'Special Education' this was a big thing for me.

Did You Have a Very Glee Christmas?
