Okay, let’s not accuse Sam of pedophilia okay? Yeah, her “relationship” with Orlin was fucked up, but it wasn’t that fucked up.
Deciding to bring Orlin back as a twelve year old was just another example of how fucked up the writers were when it came to adult relationships. Who EVER thought it was a good idea, or made some kind of difference to the plot if he was young or not? The reason was even stupid. Just chalk this up to one more stupid move by the writers and credit the sweetness of the relationship with AT’s ability to play it to perfection. Sam cared about Orlin, but not in any way that was creepy.
I mean, the part of the “relationship” I had a problem with concerning Orlin and Sam was that he stalked her and wouldn’t leave her house, then turned invisible when others were around so they wouldn’t believe her. And then she somehow falls for him?
But if Amanda managed to make it sweet in these couple of episodes than KUDOS to her. Because any sweetness in the first episode was overshadowed by the creepy.
Remus Arthur Potter, you were named after two men who looked out for my safety and cared about my well-being out of altruism and decency rather than because I was a tool for them to use or because I was someone’s son.
