After committing his first murder in season 1 of Outer Banks, Rafe (Drew Starkey) went off the rails in season 2 (now streaming on Netflix) in his desperate quest to make his father, Ward (Charles Esten), proud. He even went as far as shooting (and briefly killing!) his own sister, Sarah (Madelyn Cline), and then attacking her again when she survived. In Rafe's twisted mind, hurting his family somehow meant saving his family. (Yeah, we don't get it either.) (Source: ew.com)

ew.com)DREW STARKEY: From the beginning of conversations with the showrunners, Josh [Pate] and Jonas [Pate] and Shannon [Burke], about the arc of the character, even before season 2 started. So when they were writing the scripts really is when I had some ideas about how dark it would get. It's funny because at the end of last season when Rafe takes this turn, I had started season 1 without knowing that this is where the character was going, so it's been a process of finding it along the way. There was never really like a definite moment where I was like, "Oh, all right, here we go. It's going to get really dark here." (Source:

“What I wanted to root him in and what I think the showrunners wanted to root him in were some honest motivations,” Starkey said. “Not just make him out as being evil for the sake of being evil. This is a 19-year-old who has been fairly sheltered his entire life and now it’s been flipped on its head. At the beginning of season two, his father, who he looks up to and wants true acceptance from, asks him to continue on this journey of doing some really bad and intense things. He’s in a space of true vulnerability because this is the only figure in his life who he looks up to.” (Source: www.starnewsonline.com)

Starkey said his duty to his family is as blinding as the sun for Rafe by the end of the season, but that doesn’t mean he is unaware of his actions. (Source: www.starnewsonline.com)
