I felt immediately protective of Sabrina when I met her: not because she was young, though she was, and not because she talked about how it took her a long time to get comfortable, always implying – if not stating — that Anthony was better than her at dealing with other people. She was just so vulnerable and open while, ironically enough, remaining concerned that she wasn’t vulnerable and open. Yet I thought she and Anthony had one of the strongest relationships of all the couples that came through the house.
While many of the other ones were clearly hot for each other or in situations that worked, Sabrina and Anthony were, it was always clear, in it for the long haul. A figurative Mack truck could come and descend on their relationship – which, as it turns out, sort of happened while they were in the Swing house – and they’d do whatever they had to in order to clear away the wreckage and move on.
