The final plot in "Makeover" involves Will (Matthew Morrison) stepping away from McKinley to work for show choirs on a national level. It's strange, even when it is explained, that the committee meets at Will's school, and it includes previous guest star Dalton Rumba (Michael Hitchcock, who has written several episodes), though I appreciate seeing Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as another member. It also feels like a repeated story, because Will already struggles with leaving the school in a previous arc when he is offered a role on Broadway.
The way Will's story will probably go is that he leaves, realizes he made a mistake, and then comes back, too late to save the group's chance at another Nationals win. This is a rebuilding year, anyway, so letting Will step back will only add to the chaos of the leaderless New Directions. Let's just hope Sue is made the temporary director in his absence, as that could be quite funny.
Will and Sue filmed a song for "Makeover" entitled "Mister Monotony" that is cut from this episode. This is horrible because advance photos of this number are all over the internet, and then the installment didn't deliver. Ironically, the song was sung by Judy Garland in the film Easter Parade, from which it was also cut. Come on, Ryan Murphy! It's time for another web exclusive deleted scene!
All in all, "Makeover" is not a bad episode of Glee, nor an overly impressive one. It goes a bit too light on drama and bit too heavy on goofy fluff. But it furthers a couple of plots, and is pretty entertaining. This places it somewhere near the middle when ranking episodes of the series.
