After faux-Rafe's angry outburst at the police station, Sami is even more disheartened about the future of their relationship. "Up until now, she's been very compassionate and forgiving and taking responsibility for her part in it," notes Alison Sweeney. "And I think that this is the first time she's like, 'Oh my God. He's a jerk!'"
Realizing that he's gone too far, faux-Rafe "passes out" and Sami rushes him to the hospital. "She sees this rage on him and she's horrified and upset, and then he collapses and now she's immediately put back on her heels," explains Sweeney. "Maybe that's another symptom of what's wrong with him. She watches HOUSE; maybe there's something else going on."
At the hospital, Carly agrees that something is off with him. "To hear someone acknowledge that this isn't right, this isn't him, this isn't normal, I think Sami is extremely relieved. She just wants a diagnosis."
The diagnosis? Hypoglycemia and anxiety, so Carly prescribes anti-anxiety meds. "He won't take them," sighs Sweeney. "Sami, of course, is not going to accept that, so she gets Carly to give her the drugs. For Sami, it's an answer. It's a resolution. They know what's wrong, so now they have to solve the problem. And 'Rafe' is unwilling to do that, which is upsetting to her. Ultimately, she wants Rafe back and she wants this marriage to work."
So... Sami takes matters into her own hands. "She totally justifies, in her mind, giving him the meds without his permission. We all know this is not her first rodeo," points out the actress, referring to Sami drugging Austin in 1995. (Ah...the good ol' days.) "In her head, the real Rafe would want her to do this and she's absolutely sure that she's doing the right thing: what's best for her, him and the family."
What Sami doesn't know is that "Rafe" secretly spiked his drink with alcohol, which has now mixed with the meds. Then "Rafe" announces that he wants to come clean. "He's so loopy and he tells her the truth," previews Sweeney. "His line is something like, 'Sami, Sami, I'm me! You don't get it; I'm me!' And Galen's performance is very funny and the sequence is too. Sami is like, 'What does that mean?'"
But when "Rafe" suddenly turns angry again, Sami begins to really worry about what will happen. "She's very concerned that he'll never be the same again. She's very torn up about this whole thing. She thought she finally found the man of her dreams and she is the one who causes a head injury that changes who he is? It's just a horrible, karmic thing she's done to herself."

Hey, they say you're most honest when you're drunk! ;D It doesn't sound like he really reveals too much though. And dumb bunny Sami probably wouldn't believe "Rafe" anyway even if he did reveal the truth! I guess this is progress in the story but I'm still sick of it.

That article is annoying! First, Sami is not to blame because Rafe doesn't know how to drive. I don't care whether they had a fight before the accident or not, it was his responsibly to drive safely, so the whole "karmic consequence" stuff is just stupid. Second, it's extremely annoying that Sami is the target of three criminals, two of which we know are guilty of multiple felonies (and it sounds like the fake Rafe guy has a record as well) and the spin on it is that "It's just a horrible, karmic thing she's done to herself"??!!!
Third, a wife slipping medication to her husband that a doctor prescribed to help him because he's sick and like most men too stubborn to take anything for it is not in any way similar to what Sami did to Austin. Geez, the girl has plenty of legitimate faults, there is no need to make stuff up and try to spin it as if everything she does is perpetually wrong and selfish. She's actually being loyal and trying to help out someone she cares about and all the time she is being victimized by a group of soulless men who are perfectly content about what they are doing to her and who are desperately in need of a lot of karmic payback themselves.
