    Yes, I hope this “little brother” will be a good buddy for Sam – he really needs family! I bet he will be more trouble for Sam, though!

  • Lois Oda

    Sam does not have a brother in the books – good for the writers that they gave him one = the brother connection is always a really strong one – look at Supernatural and Vampire Diaries – major players of the brother issues both good and bad – good

      actually, sam has a sister and a brother in the books

  • Nia

    He even looks a bit like Sam. Will he be a good brother or a bad one? Sam sure could use some nice family in his corner. Doesn’t sound like his parents will be good for him.

    He is so cute!!!!:D

  • I’d say this has a LOT of potential if done correctly! I can’t wait to see how Alan uses Mr. Allman!
