i'm fully aware that rafe is protecting his sister and that's why he won't tell sami what is going on. i guess he is going to go through the rest of his life unable to forge a relationship with any woman, because as soon as they find out about emily and her accident, rafe will clam up and refuse to just admit to the fact that his sister was a drug dealer and that emily found out about it. the sad thing is is that he doesn't even have to tell the whole story. simply saying that his sister got in some trouble a few years back, he hid it from the FBI, emily found out about it, etc, etc, would suffice. instead, he makes the whole thing this big scary 'you can never know the truth' secret. on the other hand, he thinks he has the perfect right to pry into sami, nicole and ej's lives, even though he flies off the handle when sami questions him about a car accident in which someone was freaking killed. what about that makes sense? what about that makes rafe anything more than a flagrant hypocrite?
so yeah, it irritates me that he gets all sactimonious and angry when someone questions him about his involvement in a death, but he thinks he's obligated to dig into nicole and sami's past with dr. baker just because he's suspicious. what makes this all even more ridiculous is that his 'cop insinct' goes off at the idea of nicole grieving for grace, yet he can't see that his own beloved sister is running cocaine and god knows what else through the pub.
Rafe's *cough* heroic *cough* tendencies really don't hold up to the light of day given that every time he's under the least bit of pressure he heads for the hills.
And this isn't the first time he's appointed himself the task of digging around in Sami's life without mentioning it to her. Remember when he played cable guy at the DiMera mansion while Sami was in WP? And later, said nothing when EJ and everyone else came away with the impression that he did that because Sami asked him to? Sami wasn't even aware he was going to do it - but he had no problem hiding behind her when it hit the fan. :eyeroll:
What a guy... :huh:
