Over on Reddit, u/Dry_Nectarine5457, commented on Sam’s (Mary Mouser) love life, rounding off the recent events of Season 3 by saying, “Sam says Robby hurt her or something. Does she like Miguel or Robby? I think this is bs. After all, Robby was a rebound. Other fans were quick to come to Samantha’s defense, stressing that like many teenagers, it was a confusing period of feelings she was going through for two people she had a history with. u/FewKaleidoscope1369 said, “They’re kids, they didn’t exactly work that out,” while another fan adding that it was details like this that established Samantha as the “most demurely realistic teenager on the show.”
Aside from supporting the eldest child in the LaRusso family, many tried to decide which type Samantha had stronger feelings for. u/Mester_12 said that while she clearly had feelings for both of them, her chemistry with Miguel seemed to run deeper, while u/roadnot_taken argued, “She’s young and people change. However, she clearly seems to have the strongest connection with Miguel and the most compatible.”
All valid points, but there was one person who might better understand what Sam is going through in this turbulent love triangle – Mary Mouser herself.
