Sue Sylvester introduces the episode as a Christmas special that FOX did not allow to air from last year. The members of New Directions audition for roles in McKinley’s living Nativity Scene. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel, Kurt and Santana work as Santa’s elves at a mall in the all-new “Previously Unaired Christmas” episode of GLEE!
Blaine believes he has the best plan to win Nationals, but he doesn’t take the glee club’s criticism too well when the students accuse him of being too controlling. Over in New York, Kurt also runs into control issues when the band disagrees over the venue of their first official gig that Kurt booked. Meanwhile, Sue reveals the story behind her iconic tracksuit and gets in touch with her feminine side in the all-new “Puppet Master” episode of GLEE!
The members of New Directions tackle their assignment of getting out of their comfort zones and determining whether they’re more like “Katy” (Perry) or (Lady) “Gaga.” Kurt holds auditions for his new band and must decide if he’ll let in the overly bold performer, Starchild (guest star Adam Lambert). Meanwhile, Jake gets closer to Bree (Erinn Westbrook) as he and Marley grow apart in the all-new “A Katy or a Gaga” episode of GLEE!
Glee creator Ryan Murphy has announced Glee will end after its sixth series, but not as he had always planned it.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” he said.
“I always knew that, I always knew how it would end, I knew what the last shot was – he was in it, I knew what the last line was – she said it to him.
So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”
