After nationals, Will put his dreams of Broadway fame on hold to return to Lima, the glee club, and his relationship with Emma. The couple moved in together and, hoping to take things to the next level, he arranged to surprise Emma by inviting her parents to dinner. As her "ginger supremacist" parents began making fun of Emma's OCD, Will rose to her defense and yelled at her mom and dad, saying that they should be more supportive of their daughter.
When Will decided to propose to Emma, he enlisted the help of New Directions to set the stage. They performed a synchronized swimming routine to "We Found Love" in the school pool, which ended with Will popping the question.
They began to plan the wedding, and Will worried that the graduating students wouldn't return for a fall wedding, so he pressured Emma to move up the event to May. But after a failed attempt with a wedding planner and their choice of venue was limited to a campground, they agreed to stick with a November date.
That spring, Will was overjoyed when New Directions finally won at nationals. And he was even more moved when, upon their return from New York City, he found out that the McKinley students had voted him Teacher of the Year, as the glee club presented the award to him.
