Quote kenerly1: To say the Hernandez NAME is not good enough for Salem is crossing the line..HIS NAME???? My gosh all of them have to be Horton or brady or Dimera..come on!!!! and for gods sake orphams have siblings>.Sorry but Sami needs to grow up..she is getting on my lst nerve and someone as handsome and kind as Rafe is well rid of her..I read his back dtory and still do not see why so many hate him..Watch Y&R and check Adam out and read what he has done..then you will have someone worthy of all the hate. Just my opinion
I'm not a Rafe hater but I am a former fan of his. However, I sort of have to agree with Homeisejammi. Rafe's back story is extremely inconsistent. They built up this whole orphan nun situation with him. He claimed he grew up with them and everything. Then he has a mother, brother, and sisters who are all close and love him. It sort of punches a hole in the orphan story. Especially since they never fully address either situation. Then he supposedly murdered his fiancee but the story is never fully resolved either so that question mark continues to hang up in the air.
But despite that I looked passed that and liked the character and in some ways I still do. With all honesty, the Hernandez family is not a core family of days and the writers certainly tried to make that happen and most days viewers are all about the Hortons, Bradys, and Dimeras. The writers didn't even do a good job with the Hernandez family as a whole...just look at Gabi. They mostly popped up out of nowhere and suddenly the audience were supposed to care about them based on them talking about how much their mother loves them.
Then on top of that, core cast members were getting fired left and right while they stayed on so that just left a bad taste in some people's mouth.
Anyway, I'm not too fond of Rafe right now because he went out of his way to marry a women he did not fully love for the purposes of saving her yet wants to act all hurt when it blows up on him. I think his attitude is very elitist concerning Sami, he thinks himself better than her in every way despite the fact that he himself has lied, broken the law, and cheated.
