I liked Rafe when they brought him on the screen...

He's got

brains, brawn, a no nonsense attitude, definite undenialable hotness, kindness, a loving heart, & he doesn't stand for any of Sami's crap; but he also can't stay mad at her. I once heard a commentor on this forum write, the reason he seems boring is because he's such the good guy. The bad boys get more interesting material. I agree. Two thumbs for Galen Gering's portrayal of Rafe.
I like good guys. I disagree about Galen's portrayal of Rafe though. I just find it dull. And I like Galen's looks too.

As far as heart, EJ's got a good heart too, and Sami knows that. His upbringing is very bad though. He was programmed to be a "Dimera soldier" and is being groomed to be Stephano's successor. And he saw right through Sami too, and didn't stand for her crap either and loved her regardless. Big difference from Rafe. And af for Rafe's qualities, if truth be told, we don't know them yet. Much of his protection of Sami was during his job placement. After that, he tried to steal what he thought was EJ's daughter from her father and left whenever Sami stood up to him. And after that, he manhandled Nicole and the nurse and held a lawyer at gunpoint for information. A hero indeed....
The manhandling award goes to...drumroll please...Mr EJ Dimera! He has been grabbing Nicole, hands around her throat, shouting at the top of his lungs everything this week! And there will be more next week :shame:

EJ put his hands around Sami's throat when she was pregnant in hospital too. :shame:

EJ held a gun on Sami! :shame:

EJ manhandles the women he 'loves' big difference! :shame:

Thumbs up to Rafe Hernandez! We have not seen him put his hands on Sami the woman he loves with any gesture that is not gentle :wub: Can wait for the Safe reunion. Ali tweeted earlier this week that they were running lines together and they had a lot of words and she was taping two eppys - I have high hopes :lol:
Yup, your hopes will be met and the ratings will go lower.
Here's a fact that has continued to amuse me throughout the whole debated issue of Rafe deciding to be Grace's father. It wasn't his original thought, it was request she made to him in the safe house.

When she first found out she was pregnant she wanted Lucas to say the baby was his, she was willing to give EJ's baby to Lucas; but, Lucas said no! Then the mayor was killed, Sami went into witness protection, and she met Rafe. It was around December I think when she told Rafe she wanted to say the baby was his. His first answer was no! that EJ would figure it out. Eventually, EJ would start counting those months, she even suggested saying that Rafe & her had met months before, he again said no!

But then after the baby was born, she went home, and he continued to visit Grace at the convent. He discovered he loved her and her mother. The reason he wanted to leave Salem was said best by Rafe, "we don't work together, I want to be a bigger part of your life than you want me too." And what did she say, "that's not true!" It also hurt him when she said what she decided concerning Grace was none of his business (or was it none of his concern, can't remember the wording). No matter, it was, Rafe was Grace's godfather. And as a godfather, it was his job to protect Grace, and that is what he was trying to do.

When he asked to become Grace's father, it was just a belated... yes! And it doesn't matter what we know about his past, the above attributes still ring true... What do we truley know about EJ before he came to Salem? Still I say, thumbs up, Rafe!
