Sam, Exes and Ohs
Sam (Marnie Alton) a sleeping around commitment-phobe, was introduced as Jennifer’s best friend and ex.
In Season 1 Sam hooked up with Becca, described as her “new plaything”, an unnamed real estate agent, and then she competed with Jennifer over the same woman, Charlie. When Charlie proposed a threesome, Jennifer left but Sam decided to stay. The rising tension between Jennifer and Sam led to Sam revealing she had cheated on Jennifer with another woman (Casey Black). Sam them met Elizabeth, a psychiatrist she tried to date by booking a therapy session. Elizabeth initially refused to date her due to Sam’s commitment issues.
Sam and Elizabeth started dating between Seasons 1 and 2. In Season 2, Sam accompanied Jennifer to a lesbian speed dating event for moral support, but ended up in the back room with one of the other participants. They kissed until Sam realized she didn’t want more and left. Sam continued to date Elizabeth and in episode 5 they were officially girlfriends. Sam faced work and money problems that along with Elizabeth’s insecurity over Sam’s womanizing lifestyle, caused problems in the relationship, although Elizabeth asked Sam to move in with her.
Sam and Jennifer were discussing respective relationship troubles and ended up kissing. Afterwards both downplayed what happened. Sam started to over compensate with Elizabeth, until she later broke up with her. In Season 2 episode 7, after trying and failing to date again, Sam realized she was in love with Jennifer.
In the series finale, Sam and Jennifer came to the conclusion that they loved and wanted each other.
