We’re concerned about Sam (Chord Overstreet) on Glee. Ever since he ran for office, and won, he’s been kind of floating. Sure, he landed a role in Grease and he’s become really good friends with Brittany (Heather Morris), but we think there’s something missing. Namely, a leading lady.

Ryan Murphy has said that Sam will be getting a new love interest this year, but we have to ask should he be dating someone new or dating someone great for him?

You see, nothing has really changed. Sam is always a little bit in the background of musicals (see: Rocky Horror, where he barely spoke), he always seems to be acting like a good friend to someone, and usually he does a voice or two. But it’s been awhile since he’s been his best.

When he was with Mercedes (Amber Riley), he was fun and had a spark in his eye that has frankly been missing. He fought to win her back and then he helped her make a career out of her badassedness by exposing her glorious vocals to the YouTubesphere. But then she moved to Los Angeles, and so we kind of let our shipping go for a while.

But here’s the thing: Mercedes is back in Lima. Sam is single. They should be together. See also: things that would keep him away from Brittany (she’s off limits, bucko). So, what do you think. Should Sam and Mercedes give it another shot? Or has that ship sailed?
