But, Sam keeps his secret powers and “saving” adventures to himself…well, to himself and baby Molly, who couldn’t tell anyone even if she wanted! He mostly hangs out with Mom as she cleans, cooks, Dad when he’s waxing his beloved car, Molly when she’s watching TV and Jack when he’s hanging in his room reading a comic.
