I know Glee isn’t necessarily about Sam, but I think the way that he treated him was awful and I have a lot of reasons why.
First, Sam dated Quinn who cheated on him with Finn and they broke up. He went to Santana but that lasted like two episodes and all they did was make out and she was super mean to him so I don’t really count that lol.
Then there was Mercedes, and though they never really became official after her and Shane broke up… despite Sam’s trying… they did not date. Then came Brittany (ahh my favorite) and he was so cute and nice to her and then they broke up so Brit could be with her OTP, Santana, which we knew was going to happen so I guess I get it.
Back to Mercedes which didn’t work out because of the whole sex thing… and I will admit I hated that they made Sam cheat on Mercedes with the dumb photographer but the way that Mercedes handled it was kinda weird to me. She seemed like she had just been waiting for them to break up because she knew it wouldn’t work out.
Now we come to Rachel. The second I saw how her and Sam looked at each other in the Movin’ Out episode, I shipped them pretty hard. Because Sam reminded her of home and he is the closest thing to Finn she’s ever gonna get.
And season 6 happened and my heart was happy because Sam was helping her heal and she was helping him get over Mercedes and he believed in her. He believed in everyone he dated.
WIth Quinn, he was protective and loving. With Mercedes he posted a video of her on youtube and put her name in lights so she would believe in herself. With Brit he married her because she thought the world was ending and got her another cat so Lord Tubbington wouldn’t be lonely. He showed Rachel she could love again and encouraged her to go back to NYADA because he knew she would regret not doing it.
Sam has been such a wonderful and caring and supportive boyfriend and then what does he get? NOTHING. I like that he is coaching Glee but I can’t tell you how upset I got when Blaine said “Sam’s got another girlfriend” because it completely threw Sam aside. He’s just the boyfriend who gives and gets nothing in return. He is never good enough. Mercedes wanted Sam to “help heal Rachel’s heart” but I didn’t know that was ALL he’d be doing. So she can go back to Jesse St. James who was never on the show and when he was he was a jerk. I can’t tell you how sad I am for Sam and it makes sense to me why Chord has been acting weird at press. He got pushed aside and I think it’s unfair. And thinking back to when Sam said maybe if he’s lucky he’ll always be on Rachel’s wall in his little gold shorts breaks my heart because he deserves to be all over the wall. He’s everything and I love him, and I never even realized how much I did.
I think Sam is one of the best characters on TV, and yeah I’m biased cause I love Glee but if you just let me explain I think you can see why I would say that.
When I was in high school I had a gay best friend and we were in theater together. We bonded over music, dancing, and boys (ooh lala). We used to sit in my car until really late at night talking about life and he broke down crying one night because he was sad he didn’t have any guy friends. I told him it wasn’t a big deal and I’m sure that he could hang out with some of the guys from theater. (I know, I was just naive). That’s when he told me something I will never forget, he said “I just want to be friends with the guys and play video games and talk about all the stuff they talk about too. But they all think if they are nice to me I will just have a crush on them and they are all too afraid of that to even talk to me more than what is necessary.” He was so heartbroken and it completely broke my heart seeing him like that.
And I saw Sam Evans on Glee and I think he is so underrated. When Finn told him that he couldn’t sing with Kurt, do you remember what he said??
I love this scene because it didn’t matter to someone like Sam that a gay boy wanted to sing with him. His only observation on the matter was how talented Kurt was.
He even stands by his decision when Kurt tells him to get another duet partner. He didn’t care about singing with another guy, it didn’t affect him. This is so important. And then we all know what happens with Sam and Blaine… they become the world’s cutest best friends. If the boys at my high school were like Sam, maybe my best friend would have felt more accepted. I love Sam so much and he’s just such a wonderful character! (Blam friendship pics under because how can you not?)
