Lucas being insensitive and sarcastic was the whole point of the Lumi scenes. He's calling her out on her crap and that's always how their dynamic works. No reason for him to be sensitive here because Sami can take it, lol. She knows Lucas cares about her enough to point out when she's being a hypocrite which is pretty much all the time. No one else knows her the way Lucas does and she trusts his judgment. That's why she really never has room to argue with him. Their friendship usually works beautifully because of this fact. As for Lucas being hurt and angry still, well that was the whole point as well. Lucas is still bitter and in resentment mode. He's obviously still hurt over their own break-up and that's the reason for the exaggerated sarcasm and pissed off attitude everytime he walks out, lol. If Sami didn't still get to him this way, then I would know for sure that he was over her. No reason for him to be this fired up around her if the feelings weren't still strong and the hurt wasn't still raw. That also proves how deeply he loved her and most likely still does. It's Sami who is being insensitive to Lucas when you think about it because she is oblivious to the fact that he is still hurt over their break-up. She's focused on Rafe and has moved on like Sami famously always does.

Wow, could Daniel be any more of a jerk?! 'Hey Nicole baby lets split but first let my true love off the hook cuz there is no way she had any culpability in your accident.' I wish Nicole would come to her senses and realize this man is so not worth wanting to build a life with. Eric can't get here soon enough for me!
Lucas you make me laugh! Love his way with words and especially holding up the mirror to Sami. I think these two work so well together in these scenarios. I actually think they are more interesting as a couple when shown as brutally honest friends. They have an amusing spark and their history clinches the authenticity of the moments. I also think the subtext of their romantic history keeps it fresh and the viewers guessing.
I'm not sure the Horton plaque had any deep meaning other than a prop to have Sami thinking of Rafe right before she bumped into him.
It did amuse me that the renewal ceremony, when Sami was big time lying to Rafe to appease her conscience, was the moment she reflected on. Wasn't that basically her 'new start' with a carried on lie? What goes around comes around.
I liked Ej tormenting Jennifer and her finally cowering on the stairs. Don't mess with a Dimera. I also like that he is keeping Daniel and Rafe unsure of his motives. Rafe is right to not trust Ej letting them off the hook and I loved Daniel's line about not knowing if what Ej says is true because he lies so smoothly.
Kristen's return still needs more pow for me. I want to be drawn in immediately and it's just not happening. I'd like more undercurrents to the deviousness that lies within to get excited about her. Marlena going a little nuts over mistrusting Kristen adds some amusement, but I don't need to be guessing if she's reformed as the story. I want wicked fun and I want it now!
I think there should be scenes of Lucas with both his sisters, that would be interesting. EJ was wrong to threaten Jen, wait until the truth comes out. I also think Lucas came off as too arrogant telling Sami off, he acts like he never did her wrong either, he wouldn't like Sami throwing in his face the dirty things he and Kate did to her years ago. He has a right to be hurt and angry, she broke his heart, but if they are going to stay friends, be more sensitive. Of course he should always tell her what day it is, I like that most about Lucas.
