Yeah. I have to agree with this. I have never got the sense that she was indifferent to Marge or Timmy's loss and pain. Sami can be the queen of smug, but in this instance, I thought the writers and AS imbued Sami with convincingly sincere empathy.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
She didn't have to shoot him. She had no idea who he was or what he was doing. She could have screamed for help, or told him "stop or I'll shoot"
Not liking Bernardi doesn't excuse her from having no empathy for Marge and Timmy. She doesn't give a damn that Timmy is in pain.
"Not liking Bernardi doesn't excuse her from having no empathy for Marge and Timmy."
Hmph. As I said earlier, she did have empathy. She would probably have continued to have empathy if Marge hadn't told her to her face that she wanted her to "fry."
As for young Timmy, he may have lost his dad, but his dad was kind of a bad guy. Who knows how many bad things he did while working for Stefano. Maybe he's killed people. Maybe Timmy's better off in the long run without him.
What happens when the truth about Bernardi comes out?
As for Sami having "no idea who he was or what he was doing?" What she did know was that he was holding a razor, high over someone in a coma's body. What would you think?
I think they went out of their way to show Sami's empathy for Marge and Timmy. Initially in those scenes where she was in the hospital waiting room with Marge, then later when Adrienne came over to the DiMansion to question Sami before she decided to turn in the video. Sami was smug and arrogant - except when Adrienne asked her about Marge and Timmy. Then Sami became very serious and sincere when talking about how badly she felt for them.
