Chord Overstreet is coming back to “Glee” in December, as Fox has confirmed the character of Sam Evans will return for a multi-episode arc in the winter. Gleek fans across the country virtually raised hell when Trouty Mouth was essentially allowed to leave the show after the second season, so if you’re a die-hard Chord fan, this is welcoming news.
Story: Charice talks about her return to ‘Glee’
I’m personally not a big fan of Chord’s character on “Glee” (I wrote about it extensively here), but since he’ll return to the show in just two months, here are three storylines that would be interesting for Sam Evans on “Glee”:
- Sam learns of Mercedes’ new relationship: “Glee” ended its second season with Sam and Mercedes becoming an item. Now, Mercedes has moved onto a new (and very big) man. A plot line involving Chord’s character learning of Mercedes’ relationship—and not approving of it—makes sense here.
- Sam’s financial problems: We know Sam’s dad lost his job, and his family was virtually homeless. It’s inevitable the producers of “Glee” will pick up where this storyline left off last season. The question becomes—will Sam still be struggling, or will he find a way to get money into his family’s pockets?
- Sam makes money…legally or illegally: What makes “Glee” so interesting is the extent to which the characters go to achieve their goals. Sometimes they’re highly unrealistic (Sue running for Congress); sometimes, they’re just over the top (Rachel sending Sunshine to a crack house).
For Sam, he needs money badly, and it would be interesting to see what he’s willing to do to get it. Is simply working 2-3 jobs to help pay his family’s bills gonna cut it? Or has he become so desperate that he’s turned to illegal means to “earn a living?”
