Yes, kids, it appears that rumors of Sam Evans’ demise have been greatly exaggerated. After TVLine’s report that Chord Overstreet is returning to “Glee,” EOnline got the scoop that he’d be back in the mix by episode 8, when the McKinley High New Directions will compete in Sectionals.
It’s also been reported that Overstreet will be back on a recurring basis — so he’s not a series regular, but he could potentially be around just as often as he was last season.
As die-hard Sam fans, we’re hoping that he makes a big entrance — may we suggest that every guy in New Directions comes down with a brutal case of laryngitis just before the big performance and Sam is just in time to save the day? Just saying.
Of course, given the timing of his return, it’s possible that he’ll be back… at a rival glee club. Let’s just hope not.
When he left the show, Sam and Mercedes (Amber Riley) had just gotten together after sparks flew at the prom. Now, Mercedes is with Shane (Lamarcus Tinker) who is supportive of Mercedes… but kind of reminds us of a pushy stage mom. With Sam in town again, could “Samcedes” be back on? We’ve got our fingers crossed.
Of course, Sam also had a relationship with Quinn last season, and now she’s on a steady downward spiral. Could he be what she needs to get back on track?
