@teenj: Haha, thanks. I was actually looking through this season's episode threads on here and you(and a few other posters) mentioned Sam's scenes as one of their "favorite" part of the episode. Then it all sort of clicked, like "Hey, Sam has been such a great character recently".
She's sooo much nicer compared to the arc. I really liked Sam during the arc, but she sure caused a lot of destruction (making Spencer lie to Mrs. Benson, hurting Gibby for no reason, fighting Freddie more than she ever did before, excluding Carly yet making her mediate arguments, ruining the train club, etc). Plus, I can't really think of a funny "Sam moment" during the arc, it was mostly Carly that made me laugh.
Trying to be optimistic, I hope that...
A. If Seddie happens, it won't be such a trainwreck, because Sam has fixed her "issues" and is somewhat normal("Maybe if you get a little more normal..."). Come to think of it, Freddie is a little abnormal himself.
B. If Creddie/no ship happens, Sam will still be like the way she is now instead of the way she acted during the arc. Maybe her focusing on a relationship with somebody she knew for so long made her act like the way she did...so if she isn't, she'll be okay?
