Please link to DR.

This week's SOD features an interview with Ali Sweeney, and this week's SOW features an interview with Galen Gering.

Rafe sneaks into Sami's apartment to get a DNA sample in order to prove that Sydney is Sami's biological daughter. Ali Sweeney explains Sami's reaction: "She is thrilled, relieved, glad he's ok and pissed that he sent her an email breaking up with her, and now he's here, kissing her." However, Galen Gering offers a different slant to SOW on Rafe's reaction: "Sami is the last person Rafe wants to see at this point. He's trying to protect her. Rafe doesn't want to tell Sami he suspects Nicole has taken her baby and that Sydney is her child, and end up being wrong."

Rafe doesn't tell Sami anything about his investigations, because he wants to wait until he can establish that Sami is Sydney's mother. Sweeney previews that Rafe and Sami make love, and then Sami asks Rafe why he's come back. Rafe says he can't tell her, and Sami and Rafe agree that Sami won't question him too much.
Rafe tells Sami not to let anyone know he's back. Gering explains, "As far as Rafe is concerned, Nicole and Stefano are the reason he was attacked in the first place, because Meredith mentioned something about Stefano. If they know he's back and investigating, he could be in more danger."

Nicole then comes over Sami's apartment, but Rafe hides.

Then, Rafe goes to send the DNA sample to his contact, while Sami goes to the DiMera mansion to see EJ. SOD says that Sami and EJ "reach a new understanding", after which they go to Grace's grave together.

Can't wait :applause:

That Sami might be going ballistic after she finds out the truth won't convince me Rafe is right to keep this secret from Sami (or the Salem P.D.). She has every right to go ballistic, first off. And secondly, her going ballistic is not a worse result than him getting killed and Sami never having any clue at all that Sydney is her baby. If Rafe knows Stefano is after him and for all he knows Meredith may be lurking out there somewhere as well then he should spill the beans to Sami while he can just to ensure she has as much information as possible in case something happens to him again.

And the idea that Rafe knows better than Sami and the sense that comes from this mindset as if all she's good for is rolls in the hay and looking pretty while he does all the work of cracking the case is just so patronizingly condescending and infuriating to me.

I mean it just brings back what was so obnoxious about Rafe in the first place when he was trying to adopt Grace and pressuring Sami to let him adopt her infant after they had sex once or twice (with no talk of marriage or even cohabitation) without believing that sort of gift or commitment from Sami entitled to her even to the smallest inkling of disclosure or openness about his past on his part. Ugh.

And I'm so ready to have Sami using that brain of hers and questioning Nicole and Mia on her own already and I so hope that this big reveal is more than just Rafe painting her a picture once he's found everything out. No matter who she is romantically paired with, I don't want to see Sami clueless and waiting to be rescued. Even if she is the heroine rather than the anti-Brady these days, I still want to see her searching and fighting for what she wants rather than waiting around clueless for some guy to fix things for her.
:sheep: Excellent post. I could not agree more.

The writing for Safe/EJole required both EJ and Sami to have a labotomy. Please please please writers give them back their brains. They are so much more interesting when they are thinking/scheming than when they give us blank stares.

SAFE = A trip to Switzerland for certain IMO. :sleep:
