Gawd, WHAT feelings?
When did this happen?
This has been going on for at least the past 5 months. It's not like they instantly developed feelings for each other. It grew organically out of them working together. IMO, although I prefer Racole, this is one story that makes sense and has been done well.
I wish Austin was staying. I'm really enjoying PM's work.
I didn't realize they had feelings for eachother, and I don't know what those feelings are or how they developed or why.
I think it could
have made sense, and could
have been done well.
If they had been clearer with the motivations behind this story it might have made some sense instead of being the laughable joke it is now.
I thought for the longest time that Carrie came back to town with an agenda because of the way she immediately
went after Rafe. I kept waiting for Carrie's goal to get back at Sami (who was happily married to a great man) to be revealed. The writers had Carrie pursuing Rafe and yet didn't provide any solid reasons why. Austin was being loving and attentive. It was baffling.
Rafe's actions have just felt disingenuous. I don't think the writers ever gave his true character any consideration. He became a generic guy filling the slot in the plot. If they wanted any of this to be believable for Rafe they should have shown him to be so crushed by Sami's betrayal that his behavior stems from that. He knows being involved with Sami's sister would torment Sami in the same way he is tormented. He may be acting vindictive unconsciously but we the audience should have clues to pick up on it.
The story MarDar presented is unsubstantial. Carrie is not compatible with Austin? What? Rafe is just horny? Huh? It's weak. Having two people say they have 'feelings' for one another does not make a relationship.
