There have been a handful of fun scenes with Sami since last fall so that has certainly helped balance out the other half of the time when Kate's out for Jordan and her little cat, too.

My problem with the "protecting Rafe" angle is that Kate usually does extreme things for her children, not her lovers. Playing the part of a desperate/jealous woman has never worked for Kate, and unfortunately, it's now happened enough times that I fear it is no longer OOC for her to obsess like this. Friend, lover, whatever, it just doesn't make sense to me that Kate would go this far out of her way for someone that is not her child. After 18 years, I'm sure LK would rather believe Kate's doing this out of concern and not jealously... but it's probably somewhere in the middle.
The ONLY way ANY of this 'protecting Rafe' makes sense if it was just an excuse used by the writers to create a perfect way to have Kate and Jordan be at odds for years to come because Jordan will eventually end up with Lucas and you know how that always has to happen...Kate always has to hate the girl who is sleeping with Lucas...so it fits.
That's why this all feels so weird. Kate's treating Rafe like he's a helpless child she has to watch over and yet she's coming on to him too.

The only way I would buy the concerned friend angle is if I had ever seen Rafe and Kate building a friendship. That's NEVER been a part of their history. They fucked for 2 months and we hardly witnessed a conversation of any substance between them before he was dumped in a coma. Where's the deep seated friendship in that? There is none. It doesn't fit.

Nicole would have been a much better option to get involved as a concerned friend considering the lengthy history shared and the bonding we watched between them during her entire pregnancy. Rafe was gutted when Nicole lost her baby and right there at her bedside sharing her pain. That's a woman who would want to watch over him in return.

I don't know what they have planned down the road, but I don't think it's just Kate getting the raw end of the stick with this story.
