The episode deals with war...
Finn decides that war is wrong, and he discusses his ideas of pacificity with Mr Schue, who decides that that week's assignment is going to be anti-war folk songs.
Kurt introduces a clueless Blaine to one of his most unexpected interests: the music of Bob Dylan. While discussing the assignment, Sebastian overhears and claims that the Warblers can beat ND at any anti-war song. They plan a show choir face off
Meanwhile, Sam introduces the Glee club to his Aunt Harper (Joan Baez), who is a hippie and tells the Glee club about her experiences when he husband was conscripted to the army during Vietnam and died in action. She informs them that the Governor of Ohio (James Taylor) is planning to make conscription mandatory for all males in Ohio. The club decides to perform at the Ohio State Fair, with the help of Emma, Sue, Beiste and Coach Roz. After their performance, the Governor still is adamant that conscription will be forced upon everyone, much to the club's chagrin.
The show choir face-off takes place at the Lima Town Hall and Courtyard. The clubs perform "War". A stunned Governor emerges and was moved by their performance. He decides to veto his motion to make conscription mandatory.
