After Sue's "informal" Show Choir Invitational has already begun, she announces several rules, including that all teams must have at least twelve members (which New Directions does not) and the competition - which will extend over a three day period - will move forward even in the unlikely event that some of the coaches get kidnapped. Rachel and Kurt redouble their efforts to recruit enough members to allow New Directions to participate, and to put together a performance that doesn't totally humiliate the team. Despite Rachel's objections, Kurt suggests they enlist former gleek Kitty Wilde to help them out...a prospect that will require Rachel to swallow her pride, but that leads to Kitty's invaluable help in putting together the perfect set list and uniting the team.

Meanwhile, Sue - who is still determined to see Kurt and Blaine reunite - pulls out all the stops to enact an elaborate plan; Sam works to recruit Spencer to join the Glee Club, but the gay, aspiring quarterback worries doing so may cost him his standing among the other jocks; and Will and Rachel have a much needed heart-to-heart.
