September 21 2010 Interview with Galen Gering provides a background for Rafe.
"Galen: That's a great question. Having not been given the true backstory, I can only make a hypothetical argument. When I was first brought on as Rafe, I was to be married to my fiancée but my sister was involved in a car crash with her. My fiancée died. There was also a rumor that my fiancée had been involved in drugs and that I actually met her while I was working in some sort of law enforcement or drug enforcement. We fell in love, but she actually got involved with drugs again and was going down the wrong path at the time we were about to be married. Then she's killed in this car accident with my sister and there were details surrounding that accident that were fishy, to say the least. I supposedly covered them up." Read more in the link.
Rafael will come to Salem October 31 at Roman's request, in order to guard Sami Brady, who has been targeted for murder, for stumbling upon Mayor Anthony Marino's dead body and the killer standing over him. Rafe will be staying with Sami at a safe house until the killer is caught.
Rafe and Sami spent Christmas together at the safe house. Since she could no longer conceal it, Sami reluctantly admitted she was pregnant and with EJ DiMera's baby. Rafe scoped out the DiMera mansion, to get a better look at EJ and to better understand Sami's reluctance to tell the father about his child. Rafe was stabbed by the killer, but got away and is now convalescing at the safe house while Sami tends to his wounds. They were stuck in the safe house until they were found out and Sami went to a nunnery to stay and have her baby (EJ's kid) Sydney, who was switched at birth by Nicole and named Grace. Rafe and Sami became a couple and Grace died soon after from meningitis.
The couple had issues when Sami started lying and the truth came out to EJ that Grace was his kid. EJ found out Sydney was his child with Sami that Nicole had pawned off as her own and he dumped Nicole who took Sydney. Rafe found Nicole but soon after, Anna, working on behalf of EJ, stole Sydney and kept her from her mother for months. EJ wanted Sami to feel the pain he felt when he lost Grace without knowing who she was. Rafe stuck by Sami during this and working as an FBI agent, it was him who eventually found out Anna was EJ's go to gal and that they'd planned the whole Sydnapping. Syd was returned to Sami by EJ, who started to feel bad about what he'd done and was falling for Sami and wanted to be her hero. Rafe and Sami broke up and EJ and Sami started to get together. Rafe never gave up looking for the Sydnapper and when Nicole gave him a CD that she had taped EJ admitting to being the Sydnapper, Rafe took it to EJ and Sami's wedding, where he played it. Sami was devastated and dumped EJ and took the kids. EJ was despondent and suicidal. She went to his home to talk to him about the possibility he might disappear with the kids and took the gun from his hand and shot him. Rafe is in the process of trying to find out what happened and who shot EJ.

At TBD, Rafe says it meant a lot to Gabi that Tad visited. Tad said she didn't seem to be doing well. He goes back to work and Rafe calls Sonny over and asks what's up with Will. Sonny gets his ire up but apologizes. Rafe says Gabi hasn't heard from him this entire time and she needs to hear about Arianna. Sonny calls Will and his call goes to voicemail so he texts him. There's no response. Melanie arrives and catches up with Tad. He notices Ben left his phone and calls Abby to let her know he'll have someone drop it by. Mel takes it and goes.
Back at the hospital, Marlena asks Clyde to view his father as an adult and consider his anger had nothing to do with him. They end their session. Rafe finds Maxine at the hub. She asks him to say hello to Gabi next time he sees her. He asks for Marlena and learns she's in her office. Once he's gone, Anne notices Maxine's ready for rounds and Theresa's still with Paul. She stalls the nurse and then goes into Paul's room. The kissing stops and Maxine follows. Anne drags Theresa out, saving her from "the wrath of Maxine." Anne wants details about how good of a kisser Paul is! Later, Maxine lets Paul take a short walk outside his room. Sonny walks in with supplies from TBD and Paul follows him.

Hope tells Rafe about knowing Aiden's wife's old friend Bree and how tense this made Aiden. She is torn, wanting to dig into Aiden's past. Rafe offers to dig for her but that'd make her feel guilty. She hopes Aiden will tell her on his own. Rafe understands. There were times he wanted to dig into Jordan's past but never did. They commiserate and once he goes, Hope searches Aiden's name and finds out that he was held for questioning in his wife's death.
