Love is in the air in South Park and cupid runs rampant through the school, according to a press release posted at SouthParkStudios.com. The press release continues:
There's a new girl in school and everyone wants to know who she has a crush on. Cartman is especially excited. He's discovered something inside himself that he never knew he had. Now, to make sure nobody gets in the way of true love, it's time for Cartman to finally let someone know exactly how he feels.
In the short teaser, called They Were meant For each Other, that Comedy Central is showing in the week leading up to the new episode, the new girl is seen and it appears that she is an African-American. We also see Eric Cartman crying in bed and repeating the words They were meant for each other, while Butters consoles him.
Cartman's falling in love with an African-American would represent a significant transformation for the character, who is known for his over the top racism (video evidence here, here and here). If Cartman really does fall in love with the new girl then maybe cupid and his magic arrows are actually involved. The only way to find out is to watch South Park on Wednesday, April 25 at 10 pm on Comedy Central, and check back at IBTimes on Thursday for a full review and recap of the new episode.
