Honestly, what I'd like to see is Julian throwing it back in Sam's face, and say he's stored marrow, so its her move. Is she really going to tell Sonny it's "okay" for him to kill her father. Is that really the example she wants to set for Danny?
And does she really want to take the chance the stored marrow would be viable should Danny get sick again? Does she really want to gamble with her son's life to help Sonny win a mob war?
She really needs to stop living her life like she's Jason's ride-or-die chick, she's a mother and she should act like it.
I don't think Sam wants Julian dead. If he stored the marrow, she wouldn't march over to Sonny and tell him to kill Julian. But I don't think she'd beg for his life either. Julian is a grown man who decided to come to town and deliberately engage in criminal activity. It's not Sam, or Danny's, responsibility to protect him from his own poor choices.
How exactly is Sam the one gambling with Danny's life. If I were in Sam's shoes I'd certainly take my chances with the stored marrow, given that Danny's father died violently and Julian seems hellbent on trying to join him. If Julian cared about his grandson he wouldn't keep gambling on Sonny not being a selfish SOB and continuing trying to start a war.
I understand that there's an automatic "anyone who goes against Sonny is automatically awesome" mentality, but Julian is no better than Sonny. He deliberately came to town and continued his criminal activities, even though he was given a major second chance to start his life over. He's already killed one guy on-screen. He brought Morgan into his business (and yes Morgan's the idiot that wanted to work for Julian at first. But given that Sonny still gets crap for involving youngsters like Stone and Jason into his life, how exactly is Julian any better?) He actually expected Morgan to kill his own father at the warehouse. He's threatening Morgan's whole family to keep Morgan as his employee. As a good mother, how exactly is it better for Sam to involve Julian in her son's life?
got suckered in when all the name droppings of vets/actors I grew up watching the show were coming back, along with the resurgence of the Nurses Ball; Little did I know that it wasn't going to be about AIDS Awareness, but a platform for Sabrina's debutant coming out.
The Nurses' Ball was how many months ago? There needs to be a better excuse for a yearlong ratings uptick than an event that happened ages ago. Most of the name dropping happened around then. People would have checked out a long time ago if they were sticking around just for the vets. Is it at all possible, that despite all the complaining from some, that a good chunk of people actually enjoy the show?
(Also was the Nurses' Ball ever truly just about AIDS Awareness (other than maybe the first few)? I know that's the in show reason for the Ball, but other than a couple of speeches, it's really about the spectacle, the song and dance, and Lucy in her underwear.)
