I thought this was a very touching episode. I think at least part of their reasoning was that Sam couldn't stay in one place long enough to settle down with someone he loved, and he wanted a normal life. It made Sam more human to have him fall in love when he was leaping around.

I don't condone them having him sleep with Abagail, but I think he'd have stayed with her if he had been able to. He didn't sleep around indiscriminately or take advantage of the people he leaped into, and he didn't sleep with married women. I think part of that was to have the contrast with Al who would have slept with anything female. At least Sam had a sense of caring about Abagail; T.V. characters nowadays jump into bed with anyone and don't even have to like them.

That being said, it is fiction after all. Just sayin'.
