This episode wasn’t too bad. It had a good balance of all of the characters. Also, a band member finally talked! The songs were all enjoyable to listen to, I especially liked “Last Christmas”(always had a soft spot for that song). First off, Sue as the Grinch was funny to watch. It was also nice to see a bit of Sue’s soft side in this episode. Next Brittany and Artie’s storyline was cute, Brittany still believes in Santa Claus and Artie wanted to keep Christmas magical for her. I know some people are getting tired of Brittany’s seemingly increasing stupidity, but I do not think it’s that bad. Artie was definately a great boyfriend in this episode. Lastly while I thought it was kind of cheesy that Artie could walk again by the end of the episode, that scene is growing on me. Loved Coach Beiste in this episode. Lastly Finchel this week is in much better shape! I see hope for them. Most of the episode is Rachel trying to get Finn back, there are several scenes with Rachel giving Finn a longing look. I have to say though in each of the Finn/Rachel encounters I was a little disappointed that Finn didn’t seem more ready to forgive her. By the end of the episode it was worth it because Finn finally gave Rachel that longing look she’s been giving him all that time. Lastly Wemma is showing signs after many episodes with little or no Wemma. Both main couples seem to be on the up and up.
p.s. Rewalks are real! here’s a link.
