In The Beginning
A few more auditions are held, and the auditioners all find out whether they were accepted into the club. Harmony sees all her dreams collapsing around her and tries to win a spot back into The Unitards. Meanwhile, Amanda bribes a friend to join the glee club after a bully named Laura joins. After Harmony apologizes to Jesse for the slap, he has a very hard decision to make; to let her back in the glee club or not. Also, a new romance sees its first steps.
