To get this back on track, how do you feel the impact of the secrets have had on Emily? Do you feel that the tribe would treat her differently if they all knew the truth? Does Emily knowing the truth help her to be kind to Leah even though Leah may treat her poorly (I'm sure as long as Sam doesn't know). Considering Sam's status in the tribe, I find it hard to believe that Emily wouldn't be treated with anything but respect, even though Sam broke off his engagement with Leah to be with Emily. But I'm sure the gossip flowed.
I think for Emily it was probably to take a lot in at first. Knowing the truth about why Sam really fell for her and dumped Leah couldn't have made things easier between them. She probably felt even worse and would try her best to reconcile with Leah. Dispte Sam's status, it was still bound to happen that Emily would have to deal with gossip, even secret disgust from some who do not know the full story of the Sam/Emily/Leah love triangle.
