We're not trying to push Glee's Rachel (Lea Michele) into a romantic relationship before she's ready. However, we've been anxious to see if Rachel and Sam's flirtiness from earlier this season would ever lead to anything, now that Sam (Chord Overstreet) is moving to NYC. In fact, Lea Michele is weighing in on the future for Rachel and Sam.
Sadly, Lea tells TV Line this week that Glee fans probably shouldn't hold their breath for a Samchel romance. "I think that kind of came and went," Lea says. But then Lea adds this surprising tidbit: "They kind of address it briefly, but [Sam] is with Mercedes now, so mmm-hmm."
OK, Samchel was never meant to be... but Samcedes is back on? Hell to the yes! Indeed, Sam and Mercedes (Amber Riley) have always been one of those couples that seemed great together but never really got a chance to blossom. Now, it appears that they'll be heating things up while they're both in NYC.
Meanwhile, Glee co-creator had recently seemed a little more open to the possibility of Sam and Rachel dating. "There was a hint [of Rachel-Sam chemistry]," Brad acknowledged earlier this month. "I think there’s something nice about those two, but not yet." See, that word "yet" made us think Rachel and Sam would get together eventually. But Lea seems to have shut that door.
Are you bummed that Rachel and Sam probably won't get together? And how do you feel about Samcedes reuniting?
