I think it's amazing that after all these years, Sweeney still doesn't get her character's family dynamic. Doesn't see Sami as a victim my ass.
Exactly. And Marlena has always accepted Sami. She might not have approved of the CRIMES Sami committed (like kidnapping and drugging), but she loved her as much as any mother loves her daughter. And she has always wanted her happy.
Though Sami's far, far from perfect and behaved inexcusably toward Marlena last year, I don't think Marlena was exactly parent of the year, either. There's a pattern of Marlena not being there when Sami needed her (e.g. Johnny going missing, where Kate actually acted more like a mother to Sami than Marlena, Grace's death, etc.), so I can see why Sami can be hostile towards her.
Unless she was kidnapped or fired from the show, Marlena has always been there for Sami. The was only one time she wasn't .... when Johnny went missing. And that was bad writing.

All other times Marlena had been there. When Sami would let her, that is. Marlena can't be there for someone who refuses to let her in. She tries, but moreoften than not, Sami pushes her away.

I wish they were closer, but let's be honest: their estrangement is mostly Sami's fault. She's always been a daddy's girl and has resented her mother ever since her mother dared to love someone other than her daddy.

I'm not a Sami hater...I'm just pointing out the facts.
