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.

  • Please bring Sam and Quinn again together. They had such a perfect chemistry. I don’t like Samcedes.

  • I’m sick that everybody throws Samcedes in my face. Such a bad storyline that won’t attract recent viewers either. Bring back Kurt and Sam and let them have their duet! Biggest mistake of the producers ever. Now Kurt is stuck with a douchebag.

  • Why don’t they just rename Glee the Mercedes, Santana and Kurt Show this season? I am sick of those three characters especially Mercedes and Santana! Sam was great with Quinn and so was Puck. Why can’t TPTB give Diana Agron a storyline that doesn’t include Finn and Rachel? I am hating Glee this season!

    • How is it the Mercedes show? She hasn’t gotten a storyline yet outside of starting the Troubletones!

  • Why are so many people hating on a clearly attractive mixed race coupling? I think granted the writing has been at times a bit here
    or there but, I genuinely like the vibe and chemistry with this pairing as I do with the whole Darren Criss & Chris Colfler combo. I think people in this country need to get over the slight racial intolerance and give the pairing a shot. Thanks!

  • I still find it hard to care either way – when the show ignores that they’ve been preparing with both groups under the required 12 members needed to qualify….but I’m sure the one group will randomly have enough and the New Directions will just tend to say a one-liner noting that they’ve been concerned about it the whole time…

  • NO! NO! NO! SAM BELONGS WITH QUINN. ITS QUAM FOR LIFE!!

  • Gross! This means Mercedes will have more scenes and since she is by far the worst character on Glee that makes me very unhappy. I can’t stand Mercedes it’s been that way since season 1. I wish she was smarter so she could graduate early so we would NEVER have to see her again.

  • This might actually convince me to watch Glee again. I was about to give up on it last year until the scene of Mercedes and Sam holding hands. I was so happy for Mercedes and I really liked the idea of her and Sam together. Then, when the bomb was dropped that Chord wasn’t returning I lost interest. I keep trying to quit Glee but the possiblitly of a Sam/Mercedes romance is sucking me back in. D*mn you Glee! You got me again.

  • Ugh… Why did Quinn have to be stupid and screw things up? They were perfect together… I feel like they’re forcing this couple-dome between Sam and Mercedes… Maybe Sam is better off just being single in general! I love him, and I love him and Quinn, but I feel like those two need to remain single and let Mercedes do her own thing.

  • If you didn’t see the chemistry in that clip you are blind…Chord and Amber have a natural on screen chemistry that Mercedes sure doesn’t have with her BF. Samcedes is very cute! Just because she isn’t ‘conventional’ doesn’t mean Amber isn’t gorgeous!

  • SAMCEDES!!! So excited about this storyline; I knew from the moment we saw them in s2 that it could be amazing, and I was right…Now with Shane in the mix, it’s even better, ups the tension and gives drama which I will love. But in the end it has to be these two, sooo cuuutee!!!! I love it

  • Omg I love them together!!!! Im so excited for tonights episode :) I hope she picks Sam cause they seem better than her and her current boyfriend….Sam is better!!!

  • This is going to get me to watch the show again. People are so close minded it’s not even funny.

    These two have so much chemistry. Anyone that didn;t see it clearly wasn;t watching.

  • Also, the Mercedes hate is getting old.

    “I hate Mercedes because she split ND up…” – Correction – Mr. Schue broke ND up by not giving a crap about any member other than Rachel Berry.

    “I hate Mercedes because she’s a diva with an attitude…” – As opposed to Rachel (QUEEN Diva), Santana (QUEEN b**ch), and Quinn (who is currently trying to steal someones child). All these girls are loved while Mercedes is considered a brat because she had the nerve to stand up for herself.

    All the haters say that it’s not because of her size and skin color, but if you’re not consistent (hating all characters with a diva attitude, for example), than how can we not think that?

  • If possible, Chord Overstreet got even hotter while he was off working on his music.

  • I just want Quinn and Sam back together….not this zero chemistry poor excuse for a couple.
