SOW: Sami and Rafe Make Love!|
Sami tries to help Rafe regain his memory, which leads to a loving reunion. "She's very tentative with him," explains Alison Sweeney. "She doesn't want to overwhelm or frustrate him. And then he says things that are super-cute like, 'I could see how I fell in love with you.' So the chemistry between the two of them is very clear and starts to develop, and then the connection becomes real and they move toward physicalizing that, and that's when fake Rafe interrupts. He's locked in the bathroom."
Rafe leaves so Sami can get some info from his double. She also takes the opportunity to rail at Rafe II for what he did to her. "She's sickened by Rafe II, and when Rafe comes back to mediate, Sami walks away because she can't listen to him anymore," sighs Sweeney. "That's when Rafe II implies to Rafe that he had sex with Sami, just to stir the pot and make Rafe question her."
And Rafe does. "Once Rafe has the impostor locked in the bathroom again, he catches Sami off guard by saying, 'Did you make love with him?' I think it is appropriate when the answer is yes. If you're going to play the semantics game of making love versus sex, Sami thought she was making love to her husband. Sami can lie, but she loves Rafe and she wants this marriage to work, so she wants to be hones and tells him the truth about why and what happened."
Needless to say, Rafe isn't thrilled. "They turned out to be some really good, emotional scenes of Sami explaining how far she was willing to go to save her marriage," previews Sweeney. "And he's like, 'How did you have sex with this guy and not know it was me?' And she doesn't have a great answer for that, other than she had no reason to think that it wasn't him. She feels devastated and guilty. She should have known. It eats her up inside and it all comes out during these scenes."
The duo works it out, stashes Rafe II somewhere safe, then heads to a hotel. "In the room, Rafe makes a comment in reference to their past," Sweeney says. "It's a 'Safe' fan moment of when Sami tried to sneak out on Rafe and he caught her at the front door, and he references that offhandedly. She's staring at him and then he looks at her and says, 'I remember.' Galen plays this amazing heat wave of information crashing and the joy of getting it all back and remembering that he's loved and that he has a family. It creates this passion and they end up having sex and reuniting for real."
SOD: Sami and Rafe Reunite!
Sami confesses to being intimate with the impostor Rafe, but by week's end, she and the real Rafe finally reconnect and make love!
"Certainly, it's being with Sami, and spending time together, that helps Rafe to regain parts of his memory," shares Galen Gering.
With Rafe's memory improving, the bond between them strengthens. But just as they move closer to cementing that bond, a tied-up Rafe 2 interfered. He taunts Sami and wonders if he was a better lover than her husband. Rafe decks the impostor.
Later, Rafe initiates an uneasy discussion with Sami. Did she have sex with the impostor? "Their talk is partly motivated by the reality that he was gone for months and found out that this guy took his place," explains Gering. "Rafe probably already knows the answer, but he just needs to hear it from Sami."
Rafe is infuriated when she admits that, yes, she and Rafe 2 were intimate. "His anger is definitely not toward Sami," Gering clarifies. "She was put in a position where she was led to believe that this guy was her husband. If anything, Rafe is angry with the DiMeras and this scum of a guy that would do this to Sami. He's sad and disappointed."
When Sami realizes that Rafe doesn't blame her for what happened, they share a passionate kiss. "I'm sure what happened wasn't an easy thing for Sami, or for Rafe," notes Gering. "Clearly, it's a difficult situation for them, but they have a really strong relationship. They trust and support one another, and that will help them work through it."
Shortly after, Sami and Rafe leave the impostor at a secure location and find a private place for themselves, where they make love for the first time since being separated.
Their next order of business is to decide how to punish EJ and Stefano. "They're going to pay dearly," promises Gering. "Rafe will find time to exact the perfect revenge upon them. There's no doubt or question in Rafe's mind."
