YOUR PREDICTION WITH AMIES DAD ??? OMG ON POINT
Let's just hope Michael isn't after personal gain. I've seen this storyline on TV so many times where an estranged parent returns and pretends to be remorseful over their actions, but is actually only after money.
I discussed this in detail down below if you want to read more!
Michael meeting Amie only after she's become famous is a little suspicious, but it's understandable if he previously thought she didn't want to meet him and then sees her with his last name on national television. Obviously he would contact her after that.
I feel like there were some question marks with Michael's whole story though, and the fact that his work just conveniently happened to send him to Oskarshamn after he'd just seen Amie on TV.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but how did he know Amie had gone back to Oskarshamn if he saw her living as a pop star in Stockholm? Was this information about Amie quitting the tour and going back to her hometown even online? If Elias (who actually witnessed Amie saying she was done and quitting) seemed taken aback when he saw Amie in Oskarshamn, then how did Michael know?
There was also some discussion about whether or not Michael actually is Amie's father. I think with the details he described to Amie (such as Petra having feelings for someone else, i.e. Mats) it seems very plausible that he is her biological dad. If he isn't, then he must've known Amie's actual dad very well and been close to him. I know there's a possibility of crazies being brought out when it comes to famous people but I don't think this is the case for Amie and Michael.
However, I don't think Michael is being entirely genuine with his story. A lot of it made sense such as him being very young and not knowing how to handle the situation, but there was also a lot of blame towards Petra ("she wouldn't let me see you, she said I wasn't father material"). I think a lot of details were left out from his story to get Amie more on his side and understand his choices.
Petra probably had very good reasons for not letting Michael see Amie when he came back from Berlin. I don't think she would want her young child getting attached to someone who only came and visited when it suited him, and who would probably leave when he got his next big opportunity to advance his law career. Petra's decisions make sense and I'm really hoping Amie won't be against the person who's taken care of her for her whole life just because she had one conversation with someone she just met.
I'm also wondering what Michael has been up to since he came back from Berlin and wasn't allowed to see Amie, since he skipped that part in his story. Does he have kids of his own? A wife? I'm kind of hoping he doesn't have any other kids for Amie's sake, just because it would be pretty heartbreaking for her to know that during her whole childhood where she was missing a dad, he was off with another loving family. Amie missing out on having that just because she was born a few years too early must be so difficult.
It's in no way her fault, and I actually can't blame Michael for this either. Petra is so admirable for being a single mom and working so hard to provide for a child she had when she was practically a child herself, and considering how young they were I also understand Michael not really making the best decision at the time and later regretting it. It's just a sad situation all around but Petra probably did her best to turn it around and give Amie as many opportunities as she could.
