This holiday-themed installment of 'Parks & Recreation' (Thu., 8:30PM ET on NBC) looked at the fallout of Ben's resignation and the scandal that rocked Leslie's campaign. With a two-week suspension, Leslie found herself simply unable to do nothing, so she started a community action group.
But it was her actions, via proxy Ann, at work that spurred everybody else to action. As usual, Leslie gave the most thoughtful gifts to everyone, so this year they decided to return the favor. Settling on a scale replica gingerbread model of the office. It would prove to be a huge winner.
What happened next, though, was what truly touched her. After getting let go by her campaign advisers, Leslie thought her ambitions for elected office were dead. But the team, realizing how much she's sacrificed for them, all decided that they would step up and be her campaign team.
Except for Jerry. Nobody told him the plan. With Leslie polling at 1% after the scandal, though, there's plenty of work for everybody to try and revive the campaign -- including Jerry.
