Toby, an encouraging word from you to Sam wouldn't be totally out-of-line.
Sam doesn't need to be patronized. He'll shake it off.

I don't want him feeling better. I want him feeling mad. Is there anyone you'd rather have as a blood enemy less than Sam? That's how I want him.
You know, it was a screw-up. But I gotta say, I love the way he did it full-speed, bam. Like there's a Sam Seaborn-shaped hole in the wall.
