OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! I can’t wait!!
WHAAATTT?? You go Harry
I screamed a little. I’m a fan of the movie and him. Yesssssssss to those tags.
No, but that doghouse scene was everything, though. From Artie trying to get the hell out, to Sam not really understanding how near death he actually was, to Mercedes - Mercedes. Amber was MVP of that scene for me because it was just so flawless - from the dialogue to the delivery to her acting choices - and I wonder if that’s a function of having a writer who loves Amber as a person and wants to see her shine. All of Mercedes’ actions and choices felt super authentic to me in a way that’s not in spite of the text like in many other episodes. Loved it. Loved everything about it.
In this episode we learn that Mercedes wants to help Santana, Mercedes is more than happy to share her spotlight with Santana, Mercedes thinks she’s better when she’s working with Santana, Mercedes fought for Santana, Mercedes believes in Santana and Mercedes thinks Santana can be a great friend.
We also learned that Rachel thinks Santana is such a shitty friend that she would never do anything nice for her unless she wanted something in return. Not to mention all the Funny Girl drama that just looks even more shallow and petty after seeing Mercedes willingly sharing her spotlight/dream with Santana.
And yet Glee wants me to think Pezberry is a great friendship? All the Glee fandom is creaming themselves over that Pezberry scene after a whole episode showing why Sancedes is clearly the superior friendship and why Mercedes is clearly a way better friend than like, anyone on this show? Okay, Glee.
Title: Down for the Count Author: bana05 Rating: PG-15 Characters/Pairings: Mercedes Jones/Sam Evans Spoilers: Up through Glee S5E15 Disclaimer: Glee ain’t mine, unfortunately; otherwise, Mercedes would have a harem and Grammys already. Summary: Mercedes decides her real world needs Sam Evans in it. Author’s notes: “Bash” was a doozy of an episode, tackling a lot of important issues to various degrees of success, but I think this is a discussion they had to have - a missing scene, if you will. Please forgive errors and I hope you enjoy.
Mercedes immediately went upstairs to her bedroom once she and Sam entered the brownstone. She heard him say he’d make two mugs of hot chocolate for them, and she trilled an affirmative reply before walking into her room and shutting the door behind her. Leaning against the wood, she let out a long breath, her stomach feeling queasy with the promise of dreams within her grasp and possibility on the horizon.
The prospect of going downstairs was scarier than going to LA.
Sam had indulged in her postponing this moment, although visiting Kurt at the hospital had always been her plan after leaving the recording studio and Sam had had to delay his trip there after receiving her text to stop by the studio, if he could. That Papa Burt had eyed them knowingly, yet with approval, when they’d crossed the threshold into Kurt’s room even though she’d unlinked her arm from Sam once they’d entered the hospital stressed the urgency of this talk they needed to have. They couldn’t give people the wrong impressions about them…or confirm right ones without talking first.
