Schuester tells Finn he’ll give some of Quinns verses to Tina.
Schuester is out to eat with his wife, and asks his wife why she hasn’t had any morning sickness, since Quinn is so sick and so often. Terri told him it’s a good sign that she’s getting sick. The waiter comes by asking if they’d like dessert, and discovers that the waiter is a six year senior, and is failed on purpose so they can keep him on the Vocal Adrenaline team.

Rachel is taking interview questions for the school paper when the interview tells her to show him her bra. She refuses and then says that getting a good review depends on it. Sandy comes in, interupting it. Finn shows up and asks Quinn if she needs help with anything, such as her lines. Rachel says she’ll think about it.
Emma gives Schuester the file of a student who went to the school fifteen years ago and was a Glee superstar. He finds the woman online and plans a meet up at her house. April, claims to be doing really well, but then the realtor comes in and yells at her for being a squatter. It becomes apparent, April is lying, and Schuester starts to talk to her about where she went wrong, then offers to help her get her final three credits in high school, and to join the Glee club.
April is presented to the Glee club and the other members seem skeptical, telling each other that she’s “no rachel.” April decides to demonstrate her ability by singing a number on the spot. The class is stunned, and Kurt is brought to tears. Even after, the Glee club still isn’t sure they want April around. Schuester encourages her to spend some time with the kids and get to know them and get them on her side. Slowly, they all start to come around, agreeing to let her stay.
Rachel is having conflicts with Sandy, believing he is trying to get her to quit so he can take her lead. Rachel takes time to practice her lines with Finn and invites Rachel to go bowling with him. Schuester and April come in to practice, and Rachel leaves, upset.

Finn take Rachel bowling, showing her exactly how to play. April and Schuester are a few lanes down. Schuester, after April admits to being on tranquilizers, tells April that he can’t keep her around if she’s going to encourage the kids to make bad choices. When she agrees, he then tells her how much he adored her in school and how he’s always wanted to sing with her. April pulls him up on the kareoke stage and the two begin a musical duet.
Finn and Rachel share a pizza at the bowling alley, and Finn tells her everyone in the glee club misses having her around, not just her talent. Rachel scores a strike and jumps up and down excitedly, hugging Finn and then kissing him. He asks her to come back to Glee and she agrees to quit the cabaret and come back.
The Glee members are all puzzled, trying to figure out what’s wrong with Quinn when Noah interjects asking them if they’re that stupid and then suggests that Quinn is pregnant and tells them Finn is the father. Rachel walks in at just that moment, mistaking the whispers as being about her and is then devastated when she’s told Finn is the father. Finn turns in an application for a scholarship and walking towards Glee practice and is accosted by an angry Rachel. Finn admits to being wrong, but tells her the kiss was real. Rachel gets angry and leaves, telling Finn he just ruined any chance he had of having her come back to Glee. Rachel returns to the cabaret and Sue grants her complete artistic control, even over Sandy.
While preparing for a performance, April shows up drunk, and tries to make out with Noah. She also shows up wearing bright pink while the rest are in all black. Emma is upset because April almost ran her over in the parking lot, but the show must go on and without April, it cannot. The performance goes well and the audience loves it.
Schuester confronts April after the performance. April tells him how great it felt to be in the spotlight, but that it felt wrong at the same time. She steps down and decides to leave. The Glee club is upset because they needed her for the second act. Rachel offers to step in and the Glee club accepts. The final part of the performance goes off without a hitch.
