As he was talking to Lucas he said.....

"Worst than that he called me by your name....."

To me this would have been an honor!

I always found this line strange.

Either it's a pride thing (a "guy" thing), where it's insulting that by being called Lucas' name - at least by someone who should know him well - he ends up playing second fiddle to the most popular guy in town. (Where, perhaps it's more of a "girl" thing to consider it an honor to be mistaken for someone we admire - even if by someone who should know us well?) ...

- OR -

It's not so much about the name he was mistaken for, as much as that he was mistaken for anyone else at all by someone who should know better. (Ex: "Worst than that he couldn't even remember who I was!!!")

I guess the question being, if between these two, which did he mean???  :wink:

But Lucas and we already "knew" he was acting strange.
In order for it to make sense that Lucas would rush into town,
to save the day, there had to be a twist, to trigger the response..
Lucas figured that Nils did that, as a "cry for help" FOR Lucas...

Had Sam just said, Nils is acting strange, the response would have been
"no s@&#"! Be glad when Micah gets back.."

Yep. At first I thought it didn't make Sam look very intelligent missing not just one clue (wrong name), but two (wrong gun) !! ... but then thinking on it, I suppose when you consider who he was dealing with.... Lol. :lol:
