Quote blindiedling: I`m shocked that Sami doesn`t do worst to them. I`m 55, and if my mother preferred treating a woman the way Marlena does Carrie, and treats me that way, I`m sorry I would stomp them both in the ground and never look back. Sami is her daughter for goodness sake. What people sometimes go through in their childhood, scars them for life. Look how many times, Sami thought her mother was dead, then to finally get her back in her life, and her mother pampers Belle, and pats Carrie on the back no matter what Carrie does. Carrie isn`t her daughter. Sami and Eric were mainly raised by their grandparents, I think in Colorado. Why didn`t Roman/John, take care of his children, he was there when Stefano had Marlena captured. Then Marlena comes back, and does everything she does. I`m really surprised Sami doesn`t sock both of them in the mouth. And Rafe has not been written, IMO, like the good-guy-hero. He broke the law when he was a cop, to cover up crimes. Makes him as guilty as Sami. I raised two boys almost by myself, and if either one of them turned out like Rafe, I would be blowing my stack. Now helping Nicole lie and hide the fact that her baby belongs to Ej, and if he gets by with that, to me is the same as kidnapping. He breaks, and bends the law, and rules like they are made of rubber. If they want him as a good guy, then quit writing him like this. I still wouldn`t like him. He is a terrible character, and IMO doesn`t belong on Days. I would rather they kept Hilda protecting Sami when she was in the safe house. Rafe is a creep. I`m hoping he is one of the characters they are going to have on the chopping block. JMO.
I had the worst childhood ..rape by a stepdad and who I thought was my mom went back to him..found out later she was my evil aunt and my mom and dad had given me to her..BUT still when this evil aunt got cancer I moved her to Ga and took care of her for the last 4 years of her life and never got a I am sorry or a thank you...And I am not sorry I did this..this made me a better person than HER..So a soap charcter can surely forgive and get on with her life. I only have known Rafe since he was locked up by EJ so I don't really know his background but he did love Sami and those kids.
