I wonder who Rafe's mom and dad is? I want to know more about his past.
I actually must be one of the few who doesn't mind Rafe. I don't love him, but I don't hate him either. The show needs a white knight, so to speak, and he fits the bill. I do think he and his family have the added bonus of adding a little diversity to the canvas. I don't have a problem with them bringing on another sibling for Rafe, lawd knows we need some teens who can actually act and be animated. Mia & Will don't seem like they could act awake if you slipped them 10 No-Doz pills followed with a Red Bull chaser. My only real quibble with this is that the writers just really need to clear up Rafe's background. He started off saying he grew up in an orphanage being raised by nuns with no siblings, now his siblings are coming out of the woodwork. It is just confusing. How did he go from being Oliver Twist to being a big bro with a multitude of siblings?
I don't remember that Rafe said he was raised at the orphanage. I remember him telling Sami that he spent a lot of time at the convent when he was a teen b/c he was always in trouble and Sr. Agnes helped whip him into shape and turn his life around. He didn't tell Sami that he didn't have any siblings, he just never mentioned them. Then, he finally told her about Ari when she returned to town. When Sami asked him in August if he had anyother brothers and sisters, he never answered her. He did say his mother lived fairly close to the safe house.
I would like the writers to clear up his background, too, but somehow, I don't think they are going to tell the whole story quite yet. At least the part about Emily. With a little sis coming into the mix, tho, he is going to have to be more forthcoming than he is now. Perhaps he is connected to the Alamains. Don't know. I had read that they may hold out on the Emily story in case they decide to bring her back via the WPP program.
I do remember that when Victor had Arianna investigated, he told her that he knew she grew up rather poor, without much, and had to work hard for everything she had. So, I guess we are being led to believe that they came from a family without much.
