I think we all judge actors through the prism of our personal likes and dislikes, though an outstanding performance usually cannot be denied or can a marked improvement.
I agree that AZ is a very good actress and is able most of the time to make the viewer feel what her part of the scene is conveying. Though at times, I am confused as to just what the writing really wants us to feel. The villain of of the piece rarely has much sympathy, but I get the sense the writing wants us to accord it nevertheless, even if it is unwarranted.
With As, I have already stated I think she is doing a good job with this part of the storyline. She has indeed toned it down, cried real tears and has given us the frozen fear that a parent would feel at a time like this. Where she loses me is when Rafe appears. Too often in the AS/GG scenes I feel that AS tries too hard to sell this implausible story and to make up for GG's flat performance. When one adds the fact that Sami becomes a simpering, wimpering child when this guy is around, it all adds up to a lousy, unappealing pairing. With this heavy emotional story it is unfortunate that he has to be there at all. I would much rather see Sami trying to put up a brave front alone while showing the terror in her eyes than to see her hug a tree.
I do not have the benefit of having seen Monday's show as yet, so I cannot judge in advance. I only can speak to what I have seen happen last week.
Like many others, I look forward to the big reveal to EJ by Sami about their having a child together. It should be fantastic. The raw emotions in this story do not come along very often. I hope these two play every one of them.
