In Artie's dream, he isn't in a wheelchair because he was able to walk. However, this resulted with no glee club because he was the glue of the club. In his dream, Mike is still attending McKinley and is part of the jock scene. He, along with Puck, Finn, Ryder, Jake, and Sam, are picking on Kurt and pushing him into lockers. Later, Artie gets all the members that are still at McKinley together and performs Feliz Navidad to try to get them to discover the love they have for singing and performing. However, this doesn't work as Mike appears bored and unimpressed.
