I get dads (or moms for that matter) wanting their kids to know how to protect themselves, it's the idea that violence is the way to resolve ordinary conflicts that troubles me. What's particularily sad about what Rafe2 is doing here (and unfortunately this is too common in real life also) is basically telling the kid that "he better" beat up the other kid. Sami needs to pick up Johnny and Sydney and run to the airport to join Lucas and Allie in Hong Kong.
If anyone has seen the movie "Something to Talk About" where the mother (Gena Rowland) is telling her daughter (Julia Roberts) "you know honey, he slipped and as silly as it sounds, it's your job to help him up". This comes to mind when I see Sami/Rafe together. Just how long will it be before Rafe "slips?"
I remember being in Junior High and this girl a year older then me got beat up by another girl pretty bad. She dragged her by her hair all the way home from school afterwards and dropped her off on the doorstep to her parents. Of course, we all followed them the entire way home and watched it all. Her dad opened the door, reamed his daughter out and grounded her for an entire month because she didn't pick up for herself and fight back. It was sickening. I will never forget that as long as I live. I hate what Rafe2 said to Johnny and I hate even more that Johnny likes him and doesn't want him to get better anymore!

Rafe 2 is so clueless. Didn't EJ tell him to back off and NOT to keep pushing Sami's buttons? She has already decided she doesn't love this new guy, he is annoying her as much as he annoys me. Stefano's plans always go awry; guess that's what happens when you work with stupid criminals. He is such a cocky dude, he does not understand the woman that he's living with AT ALL, Sami is going to blow like Mount Vesuvius and I cannot wait. This is the most interesting she has been in a long time.
