Gleeks, rejoice! Puckerman’s ex-girlfriend Lauren Zizes is returning to ‘Glee’ for a one-episode guest spot, according to HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine!

Ashley Fink is making a triumphant return to Glee after mysteriously being absent from most of season 3 and the first 10 episode of season 4.

When the show returns for the second half of season 4 in January, Lauren Zizes will once again roam the halls of William McKinley High School in time for the Sadie Hawkins Dance, HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine reports.

With the help of TVLine, we can whittle down her possible suitors. Artie (Kevin McHale) is currently with Sugar, Sam (Chord Overstreet) is with Brittany (Heather Morris) and Blaine (Darren Criss) dates men, so that leaves either Ryder (Blake Jenner) or Jake (Jacob Artist) for Ashley’s taking. I suppose it’s all up to whom Marley (Melissa Benoist) does NOT choose as her date. Decisions, decisions. (Don’t you wish we all had such a choice?)

While I certainly appreciate Ashley’s return — she’s been missed over the last season and a half — I can’t help but feel that her one-episode return is completely random. How will they explain her absence? Will we accept the reasoning? It’s almost as if Glee has become a revolving door for disappearing students [ie Rory (Damian McGinty) and Matt (Dijon Talton)].  Together, the three of them make up the trifecta of vanishing characters.

Ashley’s episode will serve as Glee’s first installment of 2013, slated to air January 24 at 9PM ET on FOX!

What do YOU think of Ashley’s return, HollywoodLifers? Are you happy?
