Patrick ad Sam are friends. It's perfectly reasonable that they would have a friendly conversation about personal matters.
How did that happen? I don't remember them throwing darts, or tossing back beers, or watching racing. Did she bring him coffee? Or Chinese food?
When did it happen? During her deaf days? Or when she had those headaches?
And what happened to her headaches? She almost blacked out while driving. Has she mentioned that to the OBGYN? Pregnancy might not be the best thing if she is prone to strokes. Why not ask her new best bud Patrick, the best neurosurgeon in the world, to run a quick MRI? OR doesn't her PI work allow her to afford health insurance? Times are tough.
How is she going to afford this uterus remodeling? That's elective surgery. Even great insurance won't cover that.
Let's just face it. Sam is the girl du jour. She will be featured in every single story and it won't make any sense. She is everybody's sloppy seconds. (We all know who should be the friend in whom Patrick and Robin confide, but that can't be because that character must be backburned so new fans don't realize she's been an integral part of the show for over a decade.)
And now Sam is going to have Jason's sloppy seconds child. That actually does makes sense, since that was how they met. She was pregnant and unwanted by Jax and Sonny (her who's the daddy story) and Jason was there to clean-up Sonny's mess, as usual.
It's pretty funny to me, a non-Sam fan, but I would think a true Sam fan would be upset that the girl doesn't get her own story - Like finding out who her father is ... where he is ...if he ever cared about her. A fully loaded soapy story just for her.
