Exclusive Glee First Look: Sam Fights to Win Back Mercedes, and She's Surprisingly [Spoiler]!

Trouty Mouth is fishing for a reunion.

Chord Overstreet’s Sam returns to Glee on Tuesday (8/7c on Fox) and he’s determined to pick up right where he left off last summer with now-ex-girlfriend Mercedes.

Glee Exclusive: Ricky Martin Poised to Play [Spoiler Alert]!

Of course, as Mercedes is quick to remind him, she’s got a new (and rather imposing) boyfriend now and she has zero interest in being at the center of another drama-filled McKinley love triangle.

But actions speak louder than words, and Mercedes’ actions — namely her facial expression in the final seconds of the following clip  — speak volumes.

    • YES YES YES!!!!! He’s always been so adorkable and lovable to me and now we see to Mercedes as well. HOPE HOPE HOPE it happens for them. Soooooooooo good together. Sam has and always will be a favorite of mine. He’s not always hung up on his hunk body which is great BTW. Mercedes you go girl.

      • I’m happy for both stars. Merc has alway been a winner and Sam got deal some hard knots. I glad she is not the girl w/the gay friend and nothing else. She is bigger than life and has earn her place up front. Thank God Sam is not all about himself but can see the beauty inside and outside of her. He needs to fight for her to see herself in his eyes. I hope GLEE kept this up!!!!! GO!!!!!!GLEE!!!!

      • I hope we don’t have to hear her boyfriend say anything else – he mumbled his way through some of the worst line delivery I’ve ever heard. If I’d cared what he had to say at all, I would’ve had to rewind it and put the captioning on.

          • I like happiness too :D

            Comment by Mushu – December 4, 2011 04:37 PM PDT  
        • Don’t listen to Maru they don’t know anything about chemistry. If they did they wouldn’t love Klaine as much as they obviously do. KLAINE SUX! Get rid of Darren and Cory they are ruining the show!

          Comment by Klaine SUX! – December 5, 2011 12:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Opinions vary but Cory is a wonderful actor and is perfect as Finn. I do like Darren as Blaine he’s really grown on me. Now as a big shipper of two of the most popular couples I’m very happy with these guys in their relationships. Especially s3. S2 Finn was written to be unpopular with fans. He was written to do some crazy selfish things that was o out of character to s1 Finn. But so far Finn s3 is more mature. Made mistakes but tries to be a better person. Not as selfish. Blaine is finally having a broader dimension to his character making him more interesting. As to ruining the show not to me at all. What is different is Kurt who is more passive s2 and s3. So at times I’ve been disgruntled about the writing in some of the s3 episodes but Finn and Blaine will be favorites of mine as is Sam and Puck.

      • Chord seems to think otherwise. According to him, the possibility of them getting back together again in the future is still open.

    • Really? I felt a lot of chemistry there. I seriously had no interest in this ship, just passing thru and saw this article. Wow, Samcedes is actually pretty cute lol.

      Comment by Bee – December 2, 2011 04:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Wow. I was NOT expecting that. They are freaking adorable! I mean, I thought they had potential from the little we saw of them in season 2, but I never expected the chemistry to be this amazing. This scene totally sold me. I guess I’m officially a Samcedes shipper.

      Comment by lc – December 2, 2011 04:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I guess we saw different clip. There IS CHEMISTRY. They both had smirks on their faces. It’s gonna happen. I’m so happy.

  • Wow, that’s the most dashing I’ve ever seen Sam! And I like~ This could be an incredibly cute romance (err, love triangle… but I don’t really care about Mercedes’s current boyfriend). Glad to see Sam back!

    Comment by Cy – December 2, 2011 04:27 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Shane has been in the background with little or no screen presence. IMO his stint on the show is short lived. Samcedes YES YES!!!! Both of them smiling they know it will happen. Yes the chemisry is amazing.

    Comment by Susan – December 2, 2011 04:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • no disprespect to the actor, but why they decided to bring Sam back is beyond me. He barely had a story arc last season, and now what, another love triange. Can Glee not get some creative writers who can do more than repeat the same story line over and over again.

    No to Sam & Mercedes, and the less we see of him the better. Give Mercedes aq better story line than that, she deserves one.

    Comment by L – December 2, 2011 04:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Not feeling this pairing at all whatsoever. And not looking forward to yet another love triangle. If this is the sole reason they brought Sam back, I’d prefer they hadn’t then to be honest. Love Sam, but come on. -__-

  • Aw no! More Mercedes?! Glee has been so great without all her diva drama lately.

    Comment by Bonnie – December 2, 2011 04:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • She has “diva drama” because the stupid writers don’t know what else to do with her.

      Comment by Lessa – December 2, 2011 04:48 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Wanna explain the difference between Mercedes ‘diva drama’ vs…Berry’s?

      Yea, it got a bit ugly, but come on! Years of taking the back seat and then being put down in front of those who you come to see as another family?! I would’ve finally snapped too. And to see her blossom in The Troubletones has been stellar!

      Sam and Mercedes FTW =D

  • I love it. So glad they are revisting this storyline. Was bummed Murphy had kicked Chord to the curb, or Chord leaving. Whatever you want to believe. Plus, not feeling Mercedes’ new boyfriend either.

    Comment by Luh – December 2, 2011 04:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’ve never cared about Sam and Mercedes’ relationship either way, but I am quickly becoming annoyed with it. It’s been all the media has focused on since it was announced that Chord was coming back, and I’m sick of having it shoved down my throat. I care way more about Sam as a character and I’d much rather he have a better story this season than trying to win over Mercedes. This clip really does nothing for me, except re-affirm that Sam is amazing and they never should have even thought about getting rid of him. I REALLY hope the writers’ boredom strikes soon and they move on from this to something more interesting.

    • things that you go out of your way to do, ie read articles, comment on postings, watch videos, are not evidence of something being “shoved down your throat.” I think a whole lot of people really misunderstand what that means. It means being forced to partake in something, not simply being briefly confronted by a thing you find distasteful or mildly annoying.

      Comment by Nancy – December 4, 2011 04:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • As opposed to all the other two main couples on the show being shoved down viewers throats? ESPECIALLY Klaine.

  • Wow I can’t stop smiling that was super cute!! I didn’t expect they would have that much chemsitry in one go!! And finally its a glee couple we can root for, we haven’t had those for ages!! Quinn and Sam was boring as hell, too perfect and peachy clean, yuck!!

    Comment by Laura W – December 2, 2011 05:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree. Quinn and Sam were painful to watch. I was so bored with them, I usually fast-forwarded through all their scenes.

      Comment by K – December 2, 2011 10:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Me too. Like watching a sink drain. Besides, Quinn lied to and hurt him terribly for her selfish whims. Quinn is crazy and needs to be independent for now do some soul searching and find inner peace. Sam doesn’t need anything to do with her problems.

        Comment by bytheseatofmypants – December 3, 2011 01:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • I seriously hate that they don’t know what to do with Mercedes, her character has been utterly obnoxious and that bf of hers is horrid. A “sort of cute” moment doesn’t win me over. I’m not very hopeful when it comes to this storyline, the writing has been, at times, downright bad.

  • Sam-Mercedes will be a very good interracial romance if it handled properly. I hope the writers are up for this because Glee writers are not exactly brilliant.

    Comment by jenna – December 2, 2011 07:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • What was that??! Wow, so apparently still has all the
    substance and contrivance of something scribbled on the back of a dirty diner napkin moments away from a script deadline.

    This is painfully awkward and contrived, not cute. WHY would Sam be so determined to get back into a relationship that came from nothing and was composed of nothing? And especially after how insufferable and obnoxious Mercedes has been all
    season (or all series) and just her attitude towards anyone not herself in general. Samcedes, in the shard of canon
    there’s been (and in fandom) has only ever been about Mercedes (much like Mercedes in general, at least where a boy is involved)

    Sam deserves much better than this. Sam deserves someone who
    actually gives a crap about him instead of “so last June”. Sam deserves someone who shows him the same kindness and respect he shows others. Mercedes is and never was that person.

    Too bad the one person who *is* apparently is no longer an option for Sam…

      I would love to know which one of Sam’s previous ‘Relationships’ and/or who you think would be better than Mercedes to be an option for him?

      Did you watch the last season? It’s pretty clear when Sam and Mercedes could have started developing feelings for one another(I’ll just throw the Prom episode out there and hope you rethink your previous post a little).

      And, btw – this clip is made of pure AWESOMENESS =D
