Days of our Lives supercouple EJami, Alison Sweeney (Sami)and James Scott (EJ) chat with Michael Fairman at Day of DAYS 2013! Alison and James reveal … how they create the fight/sex scenes between Sami and EJ, what the fans are saying to them the most, a preview of the latest dilemma in their on-screen relationship that could cause quite the rift! Plus, Ali and James share what they thought of each other the first time they met!

  1. Maggie says:

    Thanks, Michael!

    I’ve been waiting for this interview, and it didn’t disappoint. I am so enjoying the pairing of EJ and Sami. They are so much fun to watch. I’ll tell you, when they’re on the screen, everything else fades into the background. Can’t wait for their wedding!

    DaysFan replied

    Wedding?hahaha Sami will never marry EJ because he will never change. Sami is a Brady (at times the anti-Brady) but she always put her family first.

    Sami Brady LOVES and wants to be with EJ DiMera!

    Deal with it! -_-

    Nicky D replied

    Thank You Keia!! Lumi died the moment EJ DiMera declared I love the Good the Bad and everything in between! Oh wait Sami repeated the same words recently! Oh darling Daysfan seems you forgotten who the real SGB is!! hmm

    Denise replied

    Sami married Lucas and Rafe…how did that turned out? I think with both they were barely married over a year (if that) lol. And how many weddings have Sami Brady attempted to have over her lifetime…about 20. So yeah putting the words…Sami and “marriage” in the same sentence is a joke at this point. Her weddings and marriages have mostly been either disasters or short lived. So I’m kinda happy they aren’t rushing Ejami down the aisle like they did with all the other Sami pairings that usualy ended up in disasters or divorce court lol. Let’s me know they are really invested in the long haul and when they finally have a wedding…it’s going to be BIG!!

    Kelly replied

    What a great interview. Love them!

    how can you love ej and sami? he raped twice and kidnapped her baby replaced her husband rafe had him rape her man I hate ej and sami on the screen rafe and sami love was murch more real. I am real days fan I know the history of them. I hope they break up. this is suppose to be a real love kind of storyline but it seems ppl now want to see unstable kind of love because the romantic love is boring. I hope days falls short in the polls because of this. all you ej and sami fans you must be new do your homework this couple should not be

    AliciaE replied

    Speaking of history, how about when EJ jumped in front of a bullet for Sami right before she went into witness protection where she continued to dream of him? There’s plenty of history good and bad, but as Sami said herself, “It always comes back to you.” Whenever the chips have been down, EJ and Sami have found their way to each other. They’re a strong team and they keep getting stronger together.

    Rocky Reed replied

    James Scott and Allison Sweeney always hit it out of the ball park! They are such a once in a life time talent. Thank you for sharing. Michael you are a very wise man, you understand the talent that you were squeezed between!

    Loved this interview! Great questions and it’s easy to see how much James & Ali enjoy working with each other and love EJami.. I love EJami too! :)

    DaysFan replied

    I don’t think Ali like the pair EJAMI. I think she is a LUMI fan for life. Plus Ali will never support rape for her character.

    Reply

    Michelle replied

    LMAO. You might want to read their Soap Opera Digest interview then. Ali most definitely likes James & loves working with him. I guess you’re also forgetting that her character Sami raped Austin. Both Sami & EJ are grey characters that have done a lot of bad things to a lot of people. They happen to be perfect for each other. And they have the best, hottest chemistry in daytime TV. Now you can go and make 40 more comments on every person’s post. lol

    judith replied

    wow get over yourself..you know..she is an actress, she is capable to love and enjoy different pairings for her character like any other actor..it is fiction, girl.

    Nicky D replied

    Oh Michael Thank You!! Honestly what a great interview somehow you always make them relax and be themselves. Alison and James have such a beautiful friendship and respect for each other that it reflects on our screens.Thats why we have fought for over 7 years for our lovestory! Thank You again for bringing us this interview (le sigh) can’t wait to see what Ejami have install for us..The Future is looking Bright!! angst and all but they ARE TOGETHER..Yeah Baby lol!! I still want our WEDDING!

    Keia replied

    Stop stating your lame wishes as facts!

    You are just a Lumi troll that watches the show like everyone else, and You do NOT speak for Ali Sweeney!

    EJami is the “IT” couple of DAYS right now and are NOT going any where anytime soon!

    Lumi is over. Stop hating with such immaturity!

    Instead of trolling EJami fan comments, how about you use your time and energy to support Bryan Datillo so that he can get more story as Lucas, OUTSIDE of Sami and EJ, and maybe be taken off of recurring status and be put back on contract!

    Be a fan that he can be proud of by spreading love for him and YOUR favorites, not hate for the competition!

    sarah replied

    than can she hide it pretty well haha

    Victoria Woods replied

    Why wouldn’t she support it if her character is a rapists too? Sami RAPED Austin…Lol

    daj ni replied

    if that’s the case then Nicole and ej should be together they have a better chemistry.

    reality check replied

    Ej and Nicole have NO chemistry what’s so ever..just boring, nasty and smug..thankfully this nightmare is OVER !

    Johnny replied

    Sami has been raped many times. First by Alan when she was a teenager. Then by EJ when he forced her to sleep with him. Then by Fafe (Fake Rafe) multiple times. And yes she raped Austin. So rape has been a throughline of sami’s story for 20 years. Viewers dont seem to mind so much, though, as the general consensus is that EJ is “hot”, he is changed, and Ejami are awesome. I am not sure why rape is considered a more heinous crime than murder on soaps, but it certainly is. Jason and Sonny and many others on GH are/were unrepentant murderers, but fans dont seem to mind. Murderers are he new heroes. Disgusting!

  3. Krista says:

    Fantastic interview, Michael!

    Ali and James have such a rapport and that translates to such incredible chemistry onscreen. They’re such a big reason that EJ and Sami are my favourite soap couple of all time. I’m looking forward to what’s to come for Ejami’s complicated, compelling story.

    daj ni replied

    no they don’t. I hate them on screen. she is not the type of bad ej is. Nicole was. now she is not ethier. safe fan 4life

    Reply

    Keia replied

    Safe was, and will ALWAYS be a boring, soul sucking, LAME, train wreck of a couple! As was Ejole!

    I am glad that Sami has been freed from the sucking “Vortex of Rafe” and released into EJ land!

    It gives AS the chance to shine with JS. Who is someone who can actually go toe to toe with her in scenes, and she with him.

    EJami is the BEST couple on DAYS right now, outshining ALL of their past relationships! :D

    Safe NEVER even came close to EJami’s amazing dynamic!

    d replied

    Lol and yall super couple is the reason days rating are in the garbage now. Yall like drama I like love. Days is to shaky on real love. Might as well b a reality show. But hey I’ll watch a show who delivers on real love and drama that show real writing. So 30 yes I’ve been a fan. Yall keep this bullshit I’m going over to a real love soap like general hospital or young and the restless. I hope these writers get fired b4 there is no days couple to laugh at.

  4. AliciaE says:

    They make me blush! Love James and Alison hanging out and talking about EJ and Samantha. “I’ve never had as much fun being a part of a storyline as I have in the EJ and Sami storyline.” Same here, James; same here.

    Thank you Michael,James and Ali for this interview.
    I was waiting for a longggggg tiiiiiiimmmmmmmmmeeeeeeee an interview by Michael Fairman with Ali and James TOGETHER. And i am not disappointed, to say the least. They are so fun and funny. Like someone already said : such a great rapport, it shows they know each others pretty well now. Awesome and such a delight to see.
    And James, Ali, the success of this soap opera couple is thanks TO YOU, and YOU first guys. Dool tried everything to destroy, keep this pairing apart ect..for YEARS but the dynamic, the chemistry between you two always saved it..ALWAYS. Now Days finally did face up and saw the light by writing for your characters as the couple MANY many viewers want so so much. Let’s hope now they continue and keep writing your characters as always challenging, entertaining, interesting grey characters indivudually and as a couple.

    Thank you Michael for a wonderful interview! I couldn’t stop laughing and now my cheeks hurt from smiling so much.

I’m so grateful Days finally gave EJami a chance!!

    Something tells me Ali & James fight a lot. Something doesn’t seem right about the way Ali & James were acting. When LUMI fight, they had a playful friendly way to them but EJAMI seem more like a true hate between characters & actors.

    Seriously? Are you for real? If so you certainly don’t know how to read people or peoples body language.
    James and Alison are great friends off screen. They have even challenged each other and completed a triathlon together.
    James and Alison ARE completely comfortable with and trust each other…. something Alison herself said right here in this interview.
    I do not know who your favorite male pairing is for Sami but please do not be so blind.

    JaneDigby replied

    This is uncalled for. Allison Sweeney, James Scott and Bryan Datillo are professionals. Implying that they are fighting or that they can’t separate fiction and reality is insulting to them.

    Skyla replied

    I agree and I am a LUMI fan. Ali seems to enjoy working with all her leading men: Bryan, James & Galen. James & Bryan seem to have a nice camaraderie as well when they are together. Though I may not always like where the storyline is going with certain pairs I think Ali, Bryan, & James are all fabulous actors onscreen and I don’t see any animosity between any of them off screen.

  21. DaysFan says:

    Sami was raped by a Dimera & now her twin got raped by another Dimera. I can’t wait to see Sami punch the lies out of EJ.

    Reply

  22. DaysFan says:

    Hey Michael you shouldn’t have been in the middle of Ali & James. If you had Ali sitting next to James she would have shown us how Sami will punch EJ. Sami will pack her bags and walk with her children. EJAMI is such a messed up pair. They are always fighting and this is why they will never work as a couple.

    annika replied

    If you don’t like them, why take the time watching and commenting? Use your time and energy for something else. Or are you a closeted Ejami and are you still in denial? It is ok to come out and join the dark side :)

    never. safe forever!!! they still was the best and the polls just proved it the highest ratings was when rafe and sami was together

    Lumi has been over for so long it barely registers. “Something tells me Ali doesn’t like working with James….” please! You don’t know a damn thing …and projecting your dislike of James Scott/EJ on to Allison Sweeney is all kinds of bat shit crazy! And like somebody else said, why don’t you go support BD instead of wasting your time bashing JS and the EJami pairing. You are just embarrassing yourself. Now I will go back to just ignoring your foolish, asinine rants.

  23. DaysFan says:

    I can tell Ali doesn’t like working with James. She is not happy with Sami being with the guy who raped her and now her twin raped by another Dimera.

    How much do I love James & Alison. They are so in touch with how each other work and it shows on my TV screen with the amazing EJ & Sami scenes I get to watch each and every time.
    I’m stoked to see what Ejami is going to bring to my TV screen over the next months!!!!!

    Daysfan why do you come here if you don’t like Ejami and post your crap?

    Ali loves working with James if you can’t see that in this interview I suggest you start wearing glasses they are great friends and I am convince she loves Ejami the most as made no secret how much Sami is so much better with EJ you Lumis need to sop so bitter its making your fan base look really bad no offence. This is a soap not real life and today we saw to friends having a laugh with each other so loved how Ali blushed when James called her darling.

    Paul,

    One Lumi doesn’t represent the base, anymore than one Ejami represents yours. That poster is entitled to their opinion, whatever that might be. Believe ME, the majority of the Lumis don’t care what happens to Sami now, we are solely focused on Lucas’ new storyline, and the new love interest for him. Supporting Bryan and whatever this show has planned for him is first and foremost. So don’t lump everyone together, just because one person has an opinion doesn’t mean we all feel the same way. She doesn’t speak for the base anymore than you speak for yours.

    well sad Regina can’t throw everyone under the same buss .

    l’m ejami fan but is nice other fanbase enjoy also SL’s the hate from bases l don’t have that also enjoy rafe and lucas in sl where are now or going to be.

    Gem replied

    I agree one person does not an entire fandom make. But saying Lumis only focus on Lucas is in the same vein and would imply all Lumis are actually Lucas’ fan first and I’m not sure it’s true. I was a Lumi too and when that shipped crashed and burn I continued to enjoy their friendship. No all Lumis don’t care about Sami. I love her and that’s why I enjoy her with EJ.

    Pauline replied

    Majority of Lumi fans are Lucas fans sadly..they seem to only love Sami when she is with Lucas..otherwise god forbid..they trash her as much as they can..pretty disturbing.

  36. Paul says:

    Oh I forgot to say so happy it looks like Ejami is not ending anytime soon to me best about Days is watching them if and when they spilt up no more days for me to me Ali and James are Days no disrespect to the other characters or the actors I know are fine as well but I watch for Ejami and I know Sami will marry him 2014 Sami loves EJ a lot more than she ever loved Rafe or Lucas both of those men saw Sami’s true feelings for EJ she ended up cheating on both of them because she couldn’t stay a away from EJ.

    My only regret is that DAYS could have had this supercouple for years and didn’t run with them, but tried EVERYTHING under the sun to destroy them instead but the chemistry between AS/JS couldn’t be written out no matter how hard TPTB tried. It’s that rare lightening in a bottle that’s so hard to find that’s kept EJami alive.

    Thanks Michael for sharing the interview! It was so much fun to watch. Lol at “Alison Sweeney insurance”. I love the story James td of his first meeting ever with Ali. It’s great to hear that she’s so supportive and encouraging of her colleagues. I’m really curious to see what it is that we’ll see that they’ve already filmed 7 months ahead for EJami. I’m sure it’ll be explosive and exciting as Ali and James are enthusiastic about it. Thank you so much!

    Hi Michael.
    I enjoyed the ease and flow of your DOD interview with Alison Sweeney and James Scott. Not much more can be said of them other than that NBC/SONY/ DAYS are fortunate to have these two consummate acting professionals as part of their entertainment family. Their dedication to their craft , their characters, and their show continues to resonate on screen.

    Another fastastic interview, Michael. James and Ali are terrific. I have supported this couple for almost seven years and will continue to do so. I’m just so happy to see Ejami together…they are my power couple of the 21st century.

    Reply

  52. Leah says:

    It is OBVIOUS to anyone without blinkers on that James and Alison are enjoying their current story lines and love working together. Alison even used the word “trust.”
    It’s James and Alisons friendship and chemistry that bring Ejami alive and have made so many of us fans. Keep up the good work…. so looking forward to an Ejami wedding. So bring it on Days! 7 1/2 years, enough already. Ejami really do bring the drama, excitement, love, mischief, passion, romance and family to Days. They simply have it all. Love my grey couple.

    PS: And yes Michael you may get in trouble for saying how hugely popular Ejami are but it is the truth. And they are gaining in popularity. When EJ gave up everything for Sami fans were saying ok, I now get it and I’m on board. As you say one way or another Ejami get a response out of people. People are not indifferent or couldn’t care less. They are talking about them and that is NEVER a bad thing :)

    Michael, I always enjoy your interviews. You have a way of making those you interview feel at ease and comfortable…and this interview with James and Ali is no exception.

    It’s nice to hear that they are enjoying the EJami story line (as much as the fans) and are excited about what’s to come. The EJamination are having a collective “squee” around the globe. James and Ali’s off screen chemistry definitely transfers onscreen and is what makes this pairing so lovable.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to interview this dynamic SUPERCOUPLE!

    I don’t understand why someone who doesn’t like Ejami would come here watch this interview and spend time making negative comments. It would be a more productive use of time to make positive comments about who you like. Also, anyone thinking Ali and James don’t get along was obviously watching another video. Ejami all the way!

I have been a fan of EJami from Day One, the famous towel scene, and have never wavered in my awe of these two characters and the actors portraying them. I love how EJ said that they are miserable when they are not together. That is what the fans have been seeing and saying for the past seven years. So they fight! At least now, they do make up! And how!!! I can’t wait for an EJami wedding!! I hope Days does it up in a grand way, befitting our beautiful couple!

    This was an awesome interview. I loved every minute of it. Ali and James are my favorite actors on Days. I love them & Ejami so much. Some of the haters on here are embarassing themselves. I’ve never seen a bigger bunch of bitter babies in my life. They are obsessed with everything Ejami and they follow everything they do so they can make negative comments and hate on it. How pathetic is that? Who puts that much energy into hating a couple. Back away from the TV folks. If a soap couple gets you this angry, obsessed, and makes you act this immature and ridiculous than obviously it’s time to re-evaluate somethings in your lives. And at the end of the day all you’re doing is giving them even more buzz and hits. Anyway, thanks Michael for the wonderful interview. I loved it…and by the looks of it…so did the haters. I bet they watched every single solitary second. Which at the end of the day…is the point :-)

    James Scott walked across my screen in 2006 and I was hooked. Haven’t looked back since. EJ and Sami are the best soap couple in decades. Days is lucky to have them, hopefully their story continues and gets better. Clearly, the actors love the coupling as well. It’s evident in this interview and others. Hopefully, Days has figured it out (long term), and not just temporarily.

I love Ali and James they always seem to have so much fun and you can tell they are just so comfortable with each other. Love hearing them talk about how much they enjoy working together..we as EJami fans can definitely see it onscreen.

I hope Days keep EJami together for a long time they are a joy to watch, fun and so refreshing, never boring…I can never tire of them ever!! Looking forward to an EJami wedding hopefully that will happen soon. Thanks again for such a wonderful interview it looked like you had a lot of fun and laughs with them as well.

    Michael, I LOVED this interview. How stinking cute are Ali & James, huh? Not only do they have extraordinary chemistry onscreen, they have it off screen as well! I’m not surprised that they are good friends too & it definitely shows in their brilliant performances, I am so excited for this couple that I can’t even type right now without shaking. LOL! Kudos to the Days Of Our Lives regime for FINALLY realizing what WE EJami’s have known since the day James Scott’s EJ dropped his towel & gave Ali Sweeney’s Sami a sneak peak at what she’d be running after for 7 yrs, that EJ & Sami are The SUPER POWER COUPLE of the Soap World! All Hail EJami, Daytime’s Royal Couple!

Another stellar interview right here. This EJami fan thoroughly enjoyed it. James & Ali are just too cute and it’s evident why their chemistry as friends and colleagues translates so well on screen to make them my favorite Days couple of all time. Such a joy to watch.

    Michael,
    Thank you again for such a lovely interview, but even more so I want to thank you for the gracious way you deal with people who air their petty grievances in such a childish, immature way. While I think Days is better at the moment than it has been in years, those that don’t should simple change the channel.

    Whether you like it or not, it is what it is and what it is ..Sami and EJ are the reigning supercouple of Days. Ratings continue to climb since this pair has gotten together and TPTB at NBC love what this couple does for #Days. Sami will not turn on a dime and realize she loves Lucas and Rafe because we have spent the last 6 months being told that she always loved EJ, it was always him since the first time they met.

    If there’s something on my TV I don’t like, I just change the channel….might I suggest you do the same?

    WOW! So many negative immature comments. And such bragging. Be happy for what you guys got with your obsession you begged and bullied long enough to get your way. Anything that aired until now (Sami in love with Rafe or Lucas) will never be seen as any less than it was…DEAL WITH THAT!

    Sorry, but it’s YOUR immaturity and bitterness that is showing.

    Just show support for Bryan Datillo and keep it moving!

    Lumi is DONE, but there still seems to be a chance for Lucas, if his FANS would STOP trolling EJami Fans or EJami related interviews complaining about what was (and is now OVER) posting negativity, instead of campaigning support for HIM!

    Calling us bullies who “made” the show give us what we want gives us more power than we actually have, and just makes you look like the foolish hater you are.

    EJami fans have just as much RIGHT as any other fanbase to gush about the couple we love and the actors that bring them to life!

    If you don’t like it, then DON’T read it, watch it, or LOOK for it!

    What? I think the show has been pretty clear since they got together that Sami IS in love with EJ. She has said “I love you” several times to EJ . If you want to ignore that, that’s up to you but don’t make stuff up. She isn’t in love with Rafe/Lucas anymore.

    As for immaturity perhaps you should look at yourself first. And the Anti-EJamis are just as guilty of “bullying” as the EJamis.

    One of the best Jamison interviews yet! Ali looks great w/ her new hair color and James was mega HOT in his grey pants, blue shirt, & glasses. I love hearing them ‘argue’ about their characters. I also love how cute they are with each other in real life. They are such great friends and that really shows. I’m excited to see what’s coming up for Ejami and hope that they get their wedding soon. Ali is so smart, cool, and inspirational. James is sweet, smart, and totally to die for- *can I marry this man please*! Ejami and Jamison ROCKS! Best pairing in Daytime TV!

    I’ve been waiting for James and Alison to give an interview together and for ejami to be together for so many years and now finally the waiting is over. Loved the interview Michael, so goodl! James and Alison are so cute together and they have such amazing chemistry. So cute how James first reaction of Alison was that she was tremendously beautiful and to see how she blushed when he said that. And to hear that he has never been as happy in a storyline as in the ej and sami storyline and that he gets to work with her everyday. It just brought a huge smile on my face. I love ejami and jamison and I will always be a fan of them. So thankful as a fan to have this interview to watch. It’s just perfect!

    I’m not the poster, but I’m going to speak for myself. Many of us are fans of the show, we follow anything and everything that comes out of the show…whether it be an Ejami interview, or an Ericole one, it doesn’t matter, we like to read or get scoops on future stories. Many fans also comment negatively on interviews made by other actors they might not like and they are entitled to do so. Not everyone thinks the same way.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but never have I ever thought Sami was good enough for Ej. He is well educated man, brilliant, sexy, and smart. Sami has no education, has been married multiple times, and is not good enough for him. What do these two actually have in common besides the two children they have together and the sick stuff they do to one another? Is kidnapping, shooting in the head etc. what a healthy, normal couple do to,each other over and over and over again? No, it’s not. How can anyone expect us to get behind two people who continuously are violent to each other? It makes no sense. I am glad Corday has no wedding for them coming. I’m glad it’s Wilson getting married. I hope one day the show wakes up and realizes this couple makes no sense. I don’t care who either ends up with with. They are the worst pairing I in Days history. Seven years of nothing happening. There will be seven more years of nothing if Days is still on the air. However, Ali and James are fantastic and I really enjoyed the interview.

    The number of comments on this interview alone is what’s happening with this couple. No one else compares, whether you are with them or against them you are watching. Plus, it’s a soap it isn’t suppose to make real life sense you just have to have the chemistry to pull off the good and the bad and they definitely have that and are doing that. Someone above mentioned EJami Nation – love it!!

    Violence towards each other is horrible chemistry.

    Judith replied

    Euh..ok..seems we did not watch the same show and characters. Sami and Ej have, actually LOT’S of lot’s of things in common. Both are complex, volatile, passionate, stubborn, scheming, conniving (most of the time), fiery and sometimes pretty witty. They have also their differences but what makes this couple such a PERFECT MATCH is that they are so different but at the same time so similar..perfect combination.
    That being said ,you are right about one thing Michele : this interview is awesome and Ali and James are fantastic.
    p.s: their relationship and dynamic is so so so much more than violence..they are volatile so they can be pretty out of control with each others (and others..lol) but they are also more more more than that !

    Mary replied

    Normal? One of the reasons so many love them is because they’re not your cookie-cutter type “normal” couple, they’re unique, they’re passionate, they love hard and they fight just as hard. Ej loves Sami because OF her baggage and not in spite of it. She challenges him and she doesn’t allow him to walk over her, like some of the other women in his life did. Ej could have his choice of any woman in Salem, but only one woman has fascinated him, and that’s Sami.

They were cute, sweet, sexy and funny and it is so hard to stop watching!!!

    EJamination is strong because these two actors created such amazingly strong characters in an equally amazing and even stronger pairing! They always throw themselves fully into anything given to them on the show, but to me they NEVER shine as bright as when they are together.

    Michael, thank you for the wonderful interview, it was everything I was hoping it would be. I’m glad that Ali and James enjoy working together, it sure comes through on screen and in the interview. I’m glad that Ejami was finally given a real chance to be together after all the years of numerous writing attempts to eradicate its appeal. I guess that’s the biggest testimony for this couple: all the attempts have failed and their fans not only stayed, but grew in number. I’m looking forward with great anticipation to all the Ejami fights and make-ups, and all their no doubt exciting storylines.

    Well, I haven’t commented on EJami for over a year but this interview warrants a comment. Am glad they are together and still love the pairing however, I wish the arguments and fighting between the two characters stop. It is exhausting, redundant, predictable and escalating to nasty. At times its hard to stay connected and can not deem Ejami as a love story. I wish the writers would refocus the EJami characters toward a more business venture oriented storyline filled with intrigue. Also, throwing Kate, Victor, Brady, Lucas and crazy Nick in this business mix story.

I wish we could see more of the SWEVIL EJ from his early days on screen – smart, conniving, manipulative, aggressive. And more Scami Sami. More of them as a united front against the world. Fighting or loving – they are an incredible duo. And I love it all… as long as they are the center of each other’s orbits!

    For all the ej haters…sick of everyone bashing one of the most charming, sex, and passionate male soap stars we’ve had in the history of television, I finally decided to try and open viewers minds to the tale behind the every day story. If one re-watches the ejami episodes from 2006, when james appears and then jumps to New Years 2013 you will note that EJ represents not only himself but like the rest of the cast, dupilicate the exact same storylines, as if the characters (even new cast) are being controlled by an evil genie. Sometimes they are serving out their own Karma or paying for loved ones. Here are a few examples. Sami raped Austin, EJ raped Sami. EJ shot John, Will shot EJ, Sami shot EJ, Chad took one to the chest for EJ because Sami shot an attacker who was going to kill RAFE for Kate’s infidelity. A very interesting idea with the whole makes no sense for EJ to kidnap his daughter story is simply, he did it to suffer the karma sami would have collected for kidnapping his baby girl (Hiding her pregnancy). Even the affair with Abigail can be seen as karma for sami blackmailing lexi when she had the affair with tek that will no doubt come back to bite ej in the butt. Perhaps Sami is Marlena Evans sister in a coma back in the 70′s waiting for a transplant from Abigail (Old Episodes). Or, maybe we are all dead in limbo, reliving the days of our lives, and how great would a lover have to be to suffer someone like sami’s karma, with before 2013 no more than a few kisses and twice in the sack, and which the hell he suffers seems never-ending. I know the concepts are deep, but we really need to ask ourselves, does this show represent reality or make any kind of rational sense otherwise. I mean even the devil in Marlena’s possession calls out Sami Brady’s fatal sin (hypocrite) Yet people seem to still think the Brady’s are good and DiMera’s are just bad. Kristen used to be a nun before JOHN the street JON got to her and Vivian out right checks john for not understanding the incestuous ways of the ALAMAINS. They all have decanters and drink like fishes yet only some just pop up with a pound a coke and a drug habit out of the stark blue for no reason and then in a second go to AA and are clean. Jesus. The irony made me laugh so I had to write in. Hope this opens some minds.
