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 the hospital, Jordan introduces Clyde Weston as her step-father to Rafe. Clyde calls Jordan Tammy Sue and tells Rafe he's enjoying Salem. He goes and Rafe's intrigued but called back to work. They agree to meet in an hour. He assures her everything will be okay. They profess their love and he goes.
Abby writes her resignation letter at TBD. Ben brings up yesterday's conversation with Kate who basically compared him to EJ and said Ben was a loser. Abby can tell it bothers him and assumes his father abused him. Ben says it's not the worst thing Clyde ever called him. He reads Abby's letter, upset to learn she has to include all the dirty details. She goes and Clyde arrives. He questions why the "sweet young thing" left. Ben has good taste like his father. Ben retorts that they're nothing alike. Clyde says he's head of the family and expects his son to fall into line. Clyde shows Ben Jordan's check and says Ben still owes him. Ben sneers. Clyde can see he's "the wild bronco, fierce and fearless." He will break him again if he needs to.
Abby arrives at the hospital and runs into Jordan. Papers fly and they pick them up. Abby says Ben told her he and Jordan are siblings and that Clyde's their step-dad. Jordan hopes he doesn't get in the way of her relationship with Rafe. Jordan sees Abby's resignation letter and questions her. Abby admits an affair with a board member - EJ - left her jobless. Jordan says EJ is just as responsible. Sami arrives and moseys over. She says Abby's late turning in her resignation. Jordan starts in on Sami for judging others when her past isn't perfect. Sami tells her to stay out of this. Jordan gets catty and Sami lays it all out for Jordan about Rafe having sex with Kate.
Kate sees Rafe at the pub. He tells her about his run-in with Clyde and how awkward it was. Kate muses it's best not to risk telling Jordan about their fling right now. Rafe has to. The longer he waits the worse it'll be.
