I'm with you cj!! And for the record YES I'm an EJAMI fan and NO I don't think that Rafe is some sort of sinister person. He's not interesting enough!! He's just plain boring and as far as GG goes, I'm sure he's a great guy, but his acting is just so-so. I'll give ya one to use for the next post I think Rafe is Ray Romano looking for a day job!! :P That's who he reminds me of. There is just no "spark" there in my opinion. And that's what it all boils down to.........our OPINIONS. None of us have a crystal ball to see what's going to happen. We all have our people we "like" together and clearly the above mentioned is a "safe" fan. My opinion of the character of Rafe isn't even based on "my dislike" for him........it's that he draws NOTHING out of me....no reaction......he's just there. I haven't seen his character have any chemistry with ANYONE yet, most of all Sami. JMO

Haahahahahhahaa... I really cant help but smile.
Rafe is not going anywhere.. and while I expect the road to happyness for "Safe" will have plenty of bumps,twists and turns.. I do believe its in the works. And .. It helps that Alison Sweeney LOVES working with him, and Has implied that she was not a fan of the Ejami pairing.
Safe has a HUGE fanbase, and they are only a few months into him being there.
Im not surprised that the posts of those hoping he leaves and not liking Rafe, or "Safe" are ofcourse "Ejami's".. He is competition to their prefered couple.
And ofcourse they wont admit thats why they dont like him.. Its always because .. "Oh he is boring" or blahh..He is not as hot as the hunky Brit.. (beauty is in the eye of the beholder) or they have no chemistry, He is *Controlling*. (That makes me laugh.. I could post some clips of EJ's brand of *Controlling*) Or... He has some evil dark past, or my favorite, he is "Romans son" and related.. They dont like his voice, or his hair , or .. well...pick something *LOL* when really they simply dont like competition.
The plain truth is... When Sami wants a man.. she fights for him.. she does not walk away.. She does not "DENY" her feelings, she will go to ANY length to get him in fact. Uhhh thats not her approach with EJ .. because while she may have some "Sort" of feelings for him based on his being a good father to her kids. She does not truly love him.
Rafe is here to stay.. This whole plot line is an opportunity for Sami to put her past with EJ in perspective, and realize the truth .. and then do what Sami does best. """Go after her Man"""
I am not a Safe fan, but your post made me smile because I totally see your point and have seen this all over the internet. I don't see how anyone can call Rafe creepy, a stalker, obsessed or even controlling for that matter unless there was a hidden agenda. Some of the speculation about Rafe is just so out there, that I won't even bother to repeat it lest I come off like a loon for even reading past the first sentence of some postings I have seen on the world wide web.
People are free to believe what they want, but sometimes I feel as if some are watching through some kind of x-ray specs that I don't have access to, because I have no idea where they are picking up this stuff.
There will always be speculation about what Rafe is all about. But the number one complaint I have seen about Rafe is that he is BORING! The problem is after 6 months we know nothing about Rafe - nothing! He has been Sami's sidekick and not much else - come on folks you can love Galen - After six months this is what we know about Rafe, he was an FBI agent who was raised by nuns and that's it! Rafe is so underdeveloped as a character it is pathetic. The speculation about Rafe being this or that is at least interesting compared to the actual character IMO!
Seriously - what is his appeal? That he is a nice guy with good looks??? Well that description can fit any male extra on the show! What makes him interesting?
I know many will say that he saved Sami .... well big deal - the guy was her body guard he got paid to do that and he did it rather poorly! In fact instead of getting an award from the FBI he got FIRED!
