4x18 “A Change Would Do You Good” Sneak Peek: “Meet Samantha Perkins”
Sneak Peek Synopsis: Marley and Puck are introduced to Jessica’s classmate Samantha Perkins (Rowan Blanchard), only for Samantha to give an ill Marley a probable diagnosis.
“But are you feeling okay? I can schedule a doctor’s appointment if
you’re not feeling well.” Puck questioned, Marley nodding her head
“I’m fine, honey. I’m sure I just have a little bug
that’s been going around the studio, that’s all.” Marley softly assured
him. Puck kissed the top of Marley’s forehead as he felt reassured but
the door to the apartment opened as Jessica slammed it behind her, going
to the kitchen and grabbing the jar of Cookie Butter from Marley with
“Well…someone had a rough day.” Puck tried to lighten the mood, but Jessica sighed.
“Why do you and Marley insist on sending me to school?” Jessica groaned, Puck raising an eyebrow.
it’s the law?” Puck answered, Marley grabbing the jar of Cookie Butter
away from Jessica with slight annoyance and taking a spoon from the
drawer. Marley dipped her spoon in the jar and put the spoon with the
Cookie Butter in her mouth, Puck trying his hardest not to show disgust
at Marley eating straight from the jar.. “What’s wrong, Jessica?”
just nothing.” Jessica sardonically said before she appeared
frustrated. “It’s just that in music class today we were assigned to
performance the end of the week…but we’re duets.”
“That’s so exciting!” Marley showed enthusiasm while Puck appeared unsure. “So, who is your duet partner?”
“It better not be a dude.” Puck furrowed his eyebrows, Marley playfully throwing a kitchen towel at her husband.
worse.” Jessica’s eyes widened. “It’s this new girl in class named
Samantha Perkins. She just moved here from North Carolina and I have to
say she is the weirdest girl I ever met.”
“Jessica.” Marley raised
an eyebrow while giving her a stern look. “You don’t know anything
about Samantha. How do you know she’s weird?”
“I just know she is.” Jessica argued. “I mean, she’s so…perfect and…she has this awesome family. She even has a nanny.”
“And?” Puck got up from the table and stared at the young teenage girl. “You have an awesome family too.”
not like hers.” Jessica softly replied, Puck’s face softening at her.
“I’m just saying…” Marley and Puck knew no matter how hard they tried,
they were never going to be the family Jessica secretly wanted, but
honestly they were the best thing she had at the moment. Living with
them was better than living in another foster home, that’s for sure.
“Well, I think it’s great that you’re making friends at school.” Puck decided to change the subject.
no.” Jessica let out a haughty chuckle. “I am not friends with her.
We’re just working together for a school project, nothing more, nothing
less.” As Jessica said that, the door knocked and Puck went to open it.
“Oh no, it’s her. You know you don’t have to let her in if you don’t
want to.” Although Puck pretended to relent at Jessica’s words, he
opened the door and saw a young girl standing there, folding her hands
with a smile.
“Good afternoon Mr. Puckerman.” The young girl
politely said. “Is Jessica available this afternoon? She and I were
supposed to work on a music assignment. Oh my goodness, I’m sorry, where
are my manners? I’m Samantha Perkins and I am a classmate of your
“I’m not their daughter.” Jessica muttered, Marley sending Jessica a stern look at her words.
“It’s ever so nice to meet you. May I please come in?” Samantha held out her hand for Puck to shake as he did so with gusto.
course you can. And it’s nice to meet you. Jessica’s in the living
room, so you caught her at a good time.” Puck opened the door and
motioned for Samantha to enter the apartment, Samantha making her way to
the middle of the room and nodding her head at Jessica. “Jessica,
Samantha’s here.” Jessica felt a fake smile appear on her face, Samantha
looking back at her and folding her hands.
Jessica.” Samantha looked to the kitchen and saw Marley rubbing her
lower back. “Good afternoon, Mrs. Puckerman. It’s so nice to meet you.”
Marley looked up at Samantha and walked over towards her, holding her
hand out and shaking it with gusto.
“Oh, Samantha…Mrs. Puckerman’s his mother.” Marley motioned to her husband. “Please, call me Marley.”
sorry, Mrs. Puckerman but my mother always taught me to address my
elders with manners.” Samantha replied with a grin. “Simply calling you
‘Marley’ wouldn’t be respectful. I hope you understand.” Marley seemed
impressed by the young girl, but Jessica was quite the opposite. Who did
Samantha think she was, waltzing in here and making her look bad in
front of her guardians?
“Of course I
understand.” Marley waved her hand dismissively, but she felt another
cramp in her back and it was beginning to worry her. “I’m sorry I’m not my usual chipper self, I’ve been feeling back cramps for the last few days."
lower back is cramping up?” Samantha wondered. “I don’t mean to intrude
but my mother had those same symptoms…when she was pregnant with my
brother.” Marley’s eyed widened while Samantha turned and looked to
Jessica with a polite smile. “Jessica, we should get started on our
project. Once again, it was very nice meeting you and your husband, Mrs.
Puckerman.” Samantha led Jessica towards the bedroom after saying
goodbye to Marley, but all Marley could think about was the words
Samantha said. Puck entered the kitchen and noticed Marley’s face was
frozen, causing him to walk over with worry and put a hand on her
“Marley? Is everything okay?” Puck asked, Marley looking at her husband with slight concern.
“Um, Puck?” Marley said, but the tone in her voice caused Puck to worry.
the matter? Did Jessica’s friend say something to you?” Puck suddenly
became protective, but Marley put her hand up, shaking her head slowly.
Marley said again, taking Puck’s hand and gripping onto it with fear.
“Jessica’s friend did say something but…I don’t know how you’re going
to take it.”
“Marley, tell me.” Puck felt his face turn serious as
Marley toyed with her words, finally clearing her throat and giving her
husband a grave look.
“The back pain and the odd craving of Cookie Butter with oranges isn’t normal…I’m not sure..but I think I might be pregnant.”
If it's one more drawing of a rainbow, I'm moving to Coney Island.
It's better than a rainbow drawing. (Samantha shows Santana and Brittany a picture of them being lovey dovey). What do you think?
Wow...Samantha this is...amazing. I didn't know you could draw like that.
Yeah. But...why did you draw it?
Because I wanted you to know that being loved is the most important thing in the world. And regardless of what anyone else tells you, love is love. And no ignorant person can take away the love you both have for each other. So don't let them define you.
(she appears touched) Wow...thank you, Samantha. How did someone so young like you get to be so wise beyond your years?
(she turns to Marley and notices Marley is smiling back at her) It helps when you have the right kind of...LOVE.
“Something has to give.” Heath whispered, watching his sister smile down at his son.
Atlas clapped him on the back.“Something will. I love her, Heath,” He lied. “and I think it’s only a matter of time before she realizes she loves me, too.”
