Justified or Jealous?
There have been many debates in cyberspace to whether or not Samís
fury is justified or just jealousy. Message board after message
board, its Liz fans verse Sam fans, each interpreting the facts to
support their cause. I too have been furiously typing on such
boards, trying to represent the facts and nothing but the facts.
The facts donít lie, unlike Sam who tries to justify everything she does
when in actuality, sheís just jealous.
If you can see, then it should be obvious to you that Sam is jealous
of Elizabeth. Even before Jake was born, and the eventful
blackout, Sam was jealous of the fact that Jason cared for Liz.
For some reason, she felt threaten by Liz, even when it was clear that
Liz was nothing more than a friend to Jason.
Fast forward to the blackout, Sam gets down and dirty with Rick and
Jason spends the night with Liz. This is where Samís jealousy was
kicked into high gear. Unlike Sam, Jason didnít regret being with
Liz. Sam couldnít accept that fact, it drove her crazy.
Also, despite their night together, Jason and Elizabeth remained
friends. Jason didnít despise Liz, but instead, still saw her as a
When Elizabeth became pregnant and wasnít sure who the father was,
Sam flipped. She instantly became jealous of the idea that Liz
could be carrying Jasonís baby. While Jason was secretly hoping
that was the case, he kept his mouth shut. Sam made it her
business to get in Elizabethís face, once again showing anger induced by
With Jakeís arrival and the truth about his paternity, Sam once again
became increasingly jealous of Elizabeth for being the mother of Jasonís
child. She manipulated situations and went off on Jason, trying to
get him to confess the truth. It didnít work. She even began
to obsess about Jake and stalk him. She witnessed Jakeís
kidnapping and did nothing to stop it. Plus, she taunted Liz by
saying that they both lost a child, implying that Jake was dead.
Being true to only Sam, she justified her actions by insinuating that
she was hurt that Jason didnít trust her enough to tell her the truth.
She was also hurt that Jason and Elizabeth decided to conceal the fact
that he was Jakeís father from everybody. Hence, not allowing Sam
to try and convince him to seek sole custody, so that she could play
ďmommy,Ē which is what Sam wanted the most.
Now with the demise of Jason and Sam, sheís even more angry and
bitter towards Liz. Am I the only one who sees it as jealousy?
Sam knows that she messed up. She also knows that the probability
of Jason making a family with Elizabeth, Jake and Cameron, is
inevitable. She knows that she will never have that with Jason,
which makes her blinded with jealousy when it comes to Liz. Those are
the facts, take them or leave them.
