G.H. Commentary by Rachel

Miracles and Redemption

After learning that Jason was the father of Elizabeth’s son Jake, Sam began her reign of terror.  First, she began to stalk Elizabeth (and Jake), while plotting to get her hands on the baby.  Secondly, she watched as a grief-stricken woman kidnapped Jake from his carriage and did nothing.  Thirdly, she hired two goons to scare Elizabeth and her kids away from Jason.  If this was not enough, she decided to seduce Elizabeth’s husband Lucky, purely to destroy Elizabeth’s family.

Now with the truth out about Jake, and all of Sam’s dirty deeds have been brought to light, it would appear that Sam is boxed into a corner.  The only people who want anything to do with her are her family.  She had Lucky, but he too couldn’t believe how she used innocent children as props for her revenge on Elizabeth and Jason.  Once her misdeeds become public knowledge, she definitely will be the town Piranha, and knowing Carly, Sam will have her also nipping at her heels.  With everyone hating her and with no chance that Sam will be leaving PC any time soon, what will they (TPTB) do?

Can Sam be redeemed in the viewers’ eyes?  Can we forget how she didn’t come forward regarding Jake’s kidnapping or how she intentionally had Liz and the boys threatened in the park?  If we can forget, what would cause that selective memory?  Would Sam having a “miracle” baby do it?

There are rumors out there in internet land that Sam will be pregnant shortly.  With this possibility out there, is it possible that this will help with the redemption of Sam?  And for those not able to have selective memory, would it be feasible that those viewers will soften up to her as a mother, even having the memories of her actions towards Jake and Cameron?

As an avid viewer, I can safely say “no” to the questions above.  Maybe it’s my Liz and Jason bias or the fact that Sam used innocent children as pawns and had no remorse until she was caught or the fact that she uses excuses to justify her actions.  Also, she seems to never learn from her past mistakes.  While in the hospital, battered and bruised by the hit and run, she hobbled to the nurses’ station to harass Liz and openly threaten her, while professing to Lucky that she has changed days earlier.  There can be no redemption for a two-faced jealous shrew, who can’t get past the fact that her actions led to the predicament she’s in. If she can’t comprehend that, then there’s no hope for her; and from the looks of it, that’s never going to happen.
