Good on Sweeney! I'm in agreement with many here that the Sami whom I enjoyed most died when she took on the good girl role.

Personally, I don't think the heroine role plays to the character's strengths of experience or Sweeney's strengths as an actor. I've always thought a mature Sami would look more like Phyllis Newman or Carly on GH; certainly able to possess positive, nurturing and caring characteristics which always end up being superseded by their survival instinct and selfishness. Sweeney does such a great job with that type of motivation. Her sincerity plays better in small samples otherwise it just feels false.

Sami spouting the virtues of her motherhood and how she has changed isn't nearly as entertaining as her bribing, gaslighting and lying her ass off for whatever stupid result she deemed important.
