4Sam and Lara (Tomb Raider)

Sam and Lara are two characters that I totally and completely fell in love with when I played Tomb Raider. They’re best friends, they’ve decided to go on this adventure together and they clearly have a strong connection with each other. And of course, Lara goes to the ends of the Earth to find and protect Sam against an evil cult that wants to sacrifice her. If that’s not love, what is?

However, the question is: where does Sam go? We don’t get to see her for the rest of the series, leaving a big gaping hole of nothingness in our hearts. It seemed as though the writers wanted the players to ship Lara with Jonah, but even that goes badly in Shadow of the Tomb Raider when he starts flirting with someone else. We just want Lara to be happy. She deserves some booty – not the treasure kind – and I think Sam’s got a good one.
