I'm a little confused about the situation on Reaper now. Sam is the Devil's son, right? And yet Sam and the Devil keep talking about the deal Sam's dad made to sell Sam's soul to the Devil.
But if Mr. Oliver isn't Sam's real dad, then what authority did he have to sell Sam's soul, especially back to his real father, the Devil?
Sam keeps talking about ways to get out of his deal with the Devil, but what deal? I could kind of undestand if the Devil owned Sam's soul since he was his son, but that seems like that would be a lot trickier to get out of than just a contract.
This last episode made it seem like there was more to the story than just simply that the Devil is Sam's father, but that still doesn't explain why Sam acts alternately like the Devil is his dad and yet he is still bound by the deal his fake dad made.
Anybody else confused, or am I just stupid?
