I don't think Sami is good for him.And don't like him with Sami, cos somehow, imo, the character is not nice-so I have even called him a dopplegaenger Rafe.
Personally, I don't like the word hate in general. It's negative.
You either like something or dislike, a bit more or less.
Actors do their job. Galen does a good job. He can really do hurt really well. Like how he did Rafe being hurt when he found out Carrie was pregnant. You could feel how heartbroken Rafe was.
I'd like to comment about the highlighted part of your post. I agree with it but for starters Rafe was brought to Salem to protect Sami from Ej. That is how their love grew and everything that happened after that has been BECAUSE of Ej. While Safe were together then married Ej had not moved on except when he was married to Nicole. In one way or another he has messed with Sami and Rafe. I don't need to go into each and every scenario but it's Ej that is obsessed with Sami. A stalker needs to remember if your victim is married you have to deal with both of them. Perfect example is while Rafe and Sami were seperated/divorced and he was out of her orbit Rafe wasn't in Ej's orbit at all. He was pre-occupied with Carrie and not paying any attention to Ej. Now that Safe is back together, what happens? Yeah Ej is in both of their faces. If they are a couple and your obsessed with one you are obsessed with both. Ej needs to get a life.
And I don't like this madness between ej and rafe. I want Rafe to be a better person, but the writers are presenting it- like they are both in a game now.
Selfish me, of course, i love when he was preoccupied with Carrie (just loved them what can I do, lol)
That's why I wish they write a s/l for Rafe that is completely independent from EJ.
I welcome any discussion, any time.
Carrie is history. She became pregnant for Austin and left with him back to where she came from. Whatever Rafe and Carrie had was just a simple summertime crush that lead to one regretful kiss, then was soon extinguished by Austin and Sami. Rafe has now moved on with Sami; the woman he has always loved. No matter what Sami may have done wrong, Rafe is man enough to call her on it with respect; not out of manipulation. In spite of it all, he is a forgiving man.
The madness between Rafe and EJ can stop if EJ takes a hike out of Safe's life for good. He keeps meddling into their life like an obsessed lunatic that has no self control. Sami does not enter into EJ's life out of her own free will; he is the one that uses some sort of guilt trip on her to make her come back to him. Rafe is a better person and has always been. He stuck up for Nicole when she feared that EJ would take her baby from her. He did the same for Sami when she refused to have her children raised by the Demeras. What mother wants her child to be raised by a mob family: no one. Even though Rafe took a risk, he did it out of the kindness of his heart. Now he will regret ever lieing for Nicole, but at least he stood by her side and did not take advantage of her. Sami should understand that because he did the same for her.
