Samantha Orland (Angelique Cabral) is the main villainess from Backstrom's second episode, "Bella."
Samantha Orland is an arson investigator with a dark and twisted secret: she's actually an arsonist. She gets so turned on by the sight of fire that she started burning down houses, which she did while working in Seattle under the same position. Once she reached Portland, Samantha continued her evil activities, even burning down a house that actually had people inside. To cover her tracks, the evil Samantha falsified the reports and hired Backstrom to work on the case. Samantha is caught by Backstrom, Gravely, and Mojo, when she's parked in front of another house that she intends to burn. During the interrogation, flammable chemicals are found in Samantha's trunk and she is later arrested and charged with arson.
