There's no beating Judy's ham!

There's not much to say about this week's Glee. It's hard to stay with a timeline, as I can't find any point in this week's episode that specifically references an occurrence in the previous week's episode. There is a temporal clue, though, as we know that Finn is invited to the Fabrays' house for Sunday dinner. This does, of course, lead to more time-continuity issues, as Rachel appears to run into Susie Pepper in a restroom at school, immediately after dinner. That could be Monday morning, but then Rachel is wearing a different outfit before rehearsing with Mr. Schuester. Is that Tuesday?

Let's be generous, and assume that some of this week's episode happened in parallel with the previous episode's events. This seems unlikely, given that the gang would be spending a lot of time in wheelchairs, but if we don't start crediting the show a week here and there, we're going to hit Holiday Break in a hurry, and Sectionals (which are now "in a few weeks," by the way) will be happening around Valentine's Day. (This, as I alluded to last week, would actually be more in line with the schedule of show choir events in Ohio, but that's a whole other kettle of home-cured meat.) Sunday dinner is still going to happen after last week, but I'll assume that the final Schu-Rachel scene does take place on Monday (perhaps Rachel was slushied after lunch and had to change). That gives us a current date of December 7. Last day of school is the 18th, people, so sectionals better get here fast.
