Sam's a very integrated part of this small town and he has a huge secret. Plus, if he's exposed, it also exposes a whole new breed of mythological critters, the shifters and the weres. So, it's not just his secret...it's the secret of a supernatural community. That's pretty weighty stuff and makes him very vulnerable.
I think MaryAnn banks on Sam wanting to keep his secret a secret as long as possible which is why she slinks around and smirks and threatens the way she does. The day he says "screw it, I don't care who knows" and proves it is the day she will have to shut up or expose herself. Community wise I'm sure it's easier to hide as a shifter than a vampire, those who are shifters can just deny it, make it like Sam is the only one of his kind. Heh.
Now I'm wondering about Eric's intentions with Lafayette, I don't know if it's sexual or if he just wants to keep him on his scared toes, like you're gonna be my bitch and if not you'll end up back on the wheel, something like that. But I don't care, I always look forward to more Eric. Yum and Yum. And I want to know MaryAnn's intentions with Tara, I'm glad Tara ran for the hills, that party was scary.
