Sami also got over the illusion over the white night when she stopped obseesing over Austin. Rafe is not perfect by any means. .
She has not IMO, else they would not make a point of mentioning it on the show and then reinforcing it by making Sami repeat over and over and over about Rafe being the most honest person she knows, him never lying to her, him being so perfect she should have changed and be better and the list goes on.

They have made it the sticking point and built his fall from grace around it.
Because of the lie of him not being the baby daddy and to create angst for the couple but that again reinforces to me that they want Sami and Rafe to be on an even playing field. With Rafe's lie and I weas not disagreeing that the dialogue making comparisons of light and dark wasn't lost on me but I have never viewed Rafe as perfect. This lie they had him tell was just to prolong the reunion as if they got together now it would be too fast, which is why I am thankful they don't sleep together. Also Sami wheb she loves someone has a yendency to think highly of them. I mean MarDar had her spewing about Luycas that he was her "role model" or mentor. No doubt Sami needs therapy anf to be alone but Rafe has told her as Lucas has that they are not perfect. Rafe like Sami and Lucas is flawed they are not all good but will never embrace the darkness.
It's funny how even the "good" characters can be different from each other. Lucas for instance is good now but we have seen him being bad in the past. His character evolved. With Rafe, I have not seen much bad, mostly good. Plus he's seen as a hero type figure and that's how he is meant to be portrayed. Lucas is a flawed character who viewers have actually seen do underhanded and manipulative schemes in the past to get what he wants, just like Sami. So in that sense, I would separate Rafe from Lucas in the good guy category. Lucas grew up and became mature due to being a dad and life experience. Rafe was brought on as a hero type character and that's pretty much how he is always portrayed. Sure he has faults but they are not as glaring as we have seen in Lucas in the past.
If the PTB went into Rafe's past instead of beating the same merry go round to death.. we may have actually got more insight but the PTB no matter who it is always take the easy predictable route.
