But will that woman be willing to take the leap with him? Will Mercedes (Amber Riley) leave her totally-sweet, football-playing boyfriend Shane (LaMarcus Tinker) and head back into the arms of her glee club counterpart? You’re clearly (CLEARLY) in favor of the return of Samcedes, and if Mercedes’ little smile in the hallway after that first convo with Sam was any indication, perhaps... she is, too?
Not necessarily, Chord Overstreet tells TV Guide! While Sam and Shane are set to come face to face in Episode 10, “Proposal,” "Yes/No" it sounds as if it’s thus far not in the bag for dear lovestruck Sam. Says Chord, “We just shot a scene where I’m talking to Mercedes, and Shane just grabs her mid-conversation and they walk away together.”
Sounds like Sam is up for a bit more of a fight than he might have first imagined! Guess that’s why he’ll be bringing out the BIG guns and joining the... synchronized swim team? (Wait, REALLY?) And maybe, just maybe, this is a sign of a competitive streak in Shane that will prove a little less than desirable to Miss M.
Only time will tell, but we’ve got our fingers crossed for you for now...
