Quinn tells Rachel about her diabolical plan to reveal Shelby's affair with Puck, thereby costing her Beth (she hopes).
Frustrated, Blaine ends up lashing out at Sam for being a stripper, yelling melodramatically: "I am not for sale! He ends up being a bit violent to a punchbag, but Finn comes to talk to him. (Apparently with Sam, too, though we don't get to see the Sam-Blaine makeup.)Sectionals time, though!She's going to end things with Puck, anyway - it only makes her feel old. Time for the Troubletones performance - 'I Will Survive'.She reminds Quinn to make the most of being young - she'll miss it one day. I'd completely forgotten it was a mash-up with Destiny's Child's 'Survivor', so it was a lovely surprise when it kicked in.She thanks Rachel for stopping her and reveals that she's going to apply for Yale drama school (sure. )Quinn needs to continue her rehabilitation, though, so she goes to see the Troubletones and asks them to rejoin New Direction. She's even arranged it so that every other song will be performed by the Troubletones. Of course, Mike's dad comes to watch and joins in the standing ovation - he later goes to see Mike to tell him he'll support him (despite Mike not really having any impressive dancing to speak of in that performance). Later, Rachel's suspension is over so she's back at school.Quinn finds her and reveals that she won't say anything about Shelby and Puck after all. I'm sure it'll mean that we get a lovely Christmas special next week, but where's the tension going to come from now? But Mike's father isn't interested - a career in dance isn't realistic!Tina ends up leaving, but not before she cheesily asks Mike's father to "help [his] son honour his gift". And when Mike founds out about all this, he's angry with Tina.As it turns out, they're so proud of his recent maturity, but don't want him to miss out on his teenage years - he can go back to Lima with Rachel and Finn. Everyone's thrilled when he shows up at glee practice, too, and they all join in to perform 'Red Solo Cup'.Even Santana's pleased to see him - she's been saving up a few 'Trouty Mouth' insults in preparation for his return (excellent.)Let's catch up with the others, for a moment.
