Dreaming of a Melanie-free Days
Could you refresh my memory? Why did they "have to" send Sami away when Austin Peck came on? My memory of that time is hazy, but I don't remember ever considering Sami a real threat to Carrie and Austin, who were always clearly established as the rooting couple, even though I didn't like them (or at least, I didn't like Carrie). Is she claiming that the audience would only accept Carrie and Austin if she wasn't around? Because that to me is what she's saying: that she, Sami, was a real threat to Austin and Carrie, and that Lucas was a real threat to EJ and Sami, that people wouldn't buy Austin/Carrie or EJami with their respective threats.
I guess I just don't get what her point is because I don't remember that time well enough. I actually think she's overstating Sami's importance to Carrie/Austin, because I always thought of Sami as the bratty too-young interloper whereas Lucas and Sami were already established as a couple (though I didn't like them) before EJ came along.
