if this baby turns out to be Marlo’s and Sam’s, it isn’t fair to anyone.
It isn’t fair to Sam because he’ll be torn in two, trying to follow his heart but also trying to do the right thing.
It isn’t fair to Andy because she deserves to have all those firsts with Sam and now he’s also going to be…
However, the interviews with Tassie and Ben imply that his may be the storyline, but that it wraps up in the middle of season 6. How can you wrap a pregnancy up? There is still a kid at the end of it, so I think it’s safe to assume this means that the she lost the baby already, loses the baby later on, or figures out its not Sam’s, or maybe she already knows it’s not and then decides to tell the truth, who knows. But I don’t think this will be permanent, not like you’d imagine it would be if Sam was the father or if the baby is even born.
I really hope they don’t do this to Sam and Andy. And even more, I hope they wouldn’t do this to Marlo. Especially with how she’s being treated by a lot of the fandom. I defended Andy’s reaction to Marlo, but I’ll also defend Marlo’s reaction to Andy.
Marlo knows that Sam is in love with Andy, that he always has, that he couldn’t love her, couldn’t even be in their relationship 100% because he loved another woman. Imagine, if the speculation is true, that she found out she was pregnant, then through no intention of hers, is sent back to work at 15, reminded of all the things she did wrong, all the mistakes. She relives the horror of feeling responsible for Sam’s shooting and she hates herself, hates her illness. Then she has to see Sam and Andy together and know completely that they are meant for each other and that if she were to shatter that connection with her secret she will also be responsible for that, lending Sam another reason not to love her. And also knowing that even carrying his baby, she cannot hold a candle to Andy in Sam’s eyes.
