46 October 16th, 2014 DAYS EJ DiMera … Dead Or Alive? Kristen’s Mysterious Injection Raises Questions!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

Early this week, fans of NBC’s Days of our Lives witnessed a final key scene on Monday’s episode.  In it, EJ DiMera (James Scott) who for all intent and purposes has been murdered in cold blood, and is in a morgue pronounced dead, receives a visit in the dark from his half-sister Kristen DiMera (Eileen Davidson)!

After Kristen has a mysterious phone call with dad Stefano (Joe Mascolo) viewers were in on that something was up, especially since Stefano declared,”Time was of the essence”!

Over the past week, DAYS fans have been coming to their own conclusions just how EJ and Sami’s  (Alison Sweeney) story will end, since both James Scott and Alison Sweeney have departed the show, and Alison’s final episodes are playing out over the next few weeks!

So, when Kristen shows up with a huge syringe containing some drug and injects it into EJ, it would seem that the show is leaving the possibility down the road for a return for the character of EJ!  Does anybody truly die in Salem?  Yet, some EJami fans are pinning their hopes that before Alison Sweeney departs the Salem canvas, that Sami will some how be reunited with a very much alive EJ!

Now its your turn to weigh-in: What do you think Kristen injected EJ with?  Do you think EJ will eventually turn up alive and well some time in the future?  Or, do you still believe that EJ is “dead” dead?  And, do you think Sami will still be reunited with EJ before Sweeney’s final episode?  Comment below!

    She injected him with some wakeup juice. I think that this is so should down the line, Days want EJ to be alive, he can be. I doubt he will awaken before Alison departs the show. I could be wrong and it’d be great if I were, but it seems like EJ is dead and this is so, like his father, Phoenix, Jr. can rise again.

    Perhaps the Magic potion that Kristen (uh…assuming here it WAS Kristen) injected into EJ will have some Physical side effects that will cause EJ to take on a different appearance or to cause him to require Cosmetic surgery. Thus, he might re-emerge later on as played by another Actor. Ok I know it’s goofy but it’s not any worse than what they’ve come up with lately LoL.

    You will be very disappointed if you’re counting on Ken Corday to give the fans what we want. He has said many times he doesn’t care what the viewers want and doesn’t let them dictate the stories. Hence the crap we’ve seen this year with Ejami. I’m hoping for an Ejami HEA too, but not counting on it. :(

    Ken Corday — sucks! We the fans are what keeps this crap running! Oh well I officially stopped watching it the day EJ was murdered. It is really nice to hear what is going on but after 30 years of watching this show and this is what they do with EJ? If Corday don’t care, I don’t care. Go to hell Days and put Corday on the damn unemployment line

    Amy from Australia replied

    Me too me too! These horrific gut wrenching scenes need to be for something! I am out of tears and want a happy Ejami ending. It is sad enough to lose both of them off the show, couldn’t Ken give us a happy Ejami as a goodbye gift to all of us???

    At first I thought EJ was faking his death as a way to flee from Stefano, but since Stefano was behind the needle that supposed will preserve EJ’s body, which Stefano has, for cloning or whatever the Dimera’s do – the fake death doesn’t seem likely now.

    My new thought is Sami will go into hiding to protect her kids from being taken from her by Stefano– and some day down the road if Alison wishes to come back they will bring back EJ, even as a recast, and have a story line where she goes looking for him or vice-versa

    It seems all the male Dimera’s have more lives than a cat, Stefano, Tony and now EJ, while poor Lexie, only had the one– so that is good news for little Johnny, not so good news for Sidney– LOL

    Definitely they are leaving the door open for James Scott if he should get an offer to return to Days Of Our Lives and we already know Allison will return to be a director. I hope that James Scott will be a contender for the James Bond 007 role within the next 4 to 5 years, if not, he could play a villain in a James Bond movie. I don’t think James Scott will have a problem getting acting roles after Days of Our Lives.

    James Scott has openly stated that he has no plans to ever return to DAYS. If EJ were to return, it will be in the form of another actor. Scott is happy to be done with EJ.

    EJ faking his own death with the help of Miguel, Susan, and Rafe would have been one of the most epic exits for Days of our Lives. I am still holding some hope that the writers know what needs to be done for closure for EJami. We have to see EJ on Sami’s last day being reunited with his family.

    I see Sami somewhere unknown and alone with the children…then Johnny exclaims:Daddy!!! E.J. isnt shown at first until Sami looks up expecting this moment. Sami and EJ ,smiling knowingly, Sami then runs into E.J.s embrace(slow motion) and they kiss passionatly as their children gather around them in a protective group hug…finale scene! I would love it if their last screen moment ended this way!!!

    Stefano makes this show work. He is awsome. The show would not survive without him. Long live Stefano. EJ really p’d off daddy. EJ is alive thanks to daddy and sister and now Stefano will be looking to take his grandchildren away from Sami. I hate to admit this but Sami and EJ made a great couple after all. When will the show get Brady and Jordan together? Brady deserves a good girl and Jordan would be perfect for him. I can’t wait till Stefano gets revenge on Clyde.

    At the moment it looks like it’ll be Chad and Jordan…unless Melanie returns and then it’ll be a wuv triangle…

    EJ is very much alive. I remember James Scott saying “the ending will be a major twist never done on another daytime or night time soap”. A fake death has been done on many soaps including Days. There has to be more and I know there is.

    Sami will not just leave Salem as a heart broken lady. Something is up and EJAMI will find their way back together at the end!

    Maybe the way the two will go out will be as Colleen and Santo.

    I remember James Scott saying that, too! And I agree, they need their happy ending!

  12. Troy Parkins says:

    I’m telling you, more people get killed in that Fake Leaf Park then anywhere else in Salem. That park is dangerous!
    I hate to say it but the storyline is more than a tad far-fetched. At this point, maybe it wasn’t even Kristen who injected EJ – maybe it was Susan – and just how many more “magic pharmacy formulas” that no one knows about (oh except Kristen) in the Medical World are they going to come up with? This potion makes your heart stop, this potion makes you only appear dead, this potion brings you out of a coma, this potion brings you back from death, etc. It’s all lacking in credibility – yes, yes, I know it’s a Soap but it should at least mirror real life to a certain extent – yes, no – what do others think -

    No. I have to live real life! I want soap opera absurdities! Lol. It was the mystery/adventure storylines by James Reilly that got me hooked on Days all those years ago.

    I think EJ died but Stefano had Kristen give EJ some miracle drug, to start EJ heart up again.Stefano came back to life countless times himself..he defeats death,LOL,Stefano has EJ with him alive.I would love to see Ejami and the kids back together before Ali S leaves but it may just end like a cliffhanger for now.,

    Yes, I do think EJ and Sami should be reunited. They should leave as a family. Maybe go live with EJ’s mother.

    First, thank-you Michael Fairman for bringing up this issue and allowing fans to give their responses. I think I appreciate this opportunity to respond more than any other I have had so far on this website.

    Now…My first thought after seeing this scene was that Stefano had a miracle drug that could revive EJ. Kristen had to inject the drug within a specified time period to have any hope of the drug reviving EJ. Saving his brain function might be tricky, which could mean EJ becoming a vetetable. (Stefano could work with that and restore EJ’s brain function to work only in DiMera style…..You get my drift.)

    My second thought was that EJ is really dead, but Stefano needed to withdraw blood from EJ’s body so that he could create an EJ clone.

    My third and final thought on this is that the man who shot EJ was really working for Stefano. The man was ordered to shoot EJ using a gun that had a special bullet containing medicine that would put EJ into a deep coma that resembled death. Kristen had to inject a special drug by a specified time to keep EJ from actually dying. Stefano then had to retrieve EJ’s body to keep the undertaker from actually killing EJ for real! If this third thought is what is really true, Stefano did this in fulfillment of his threat to “destroy EJ” for betraying him (Stefano) to the authorities regarding the tax evasion charges. The “destruction of EJ” is actually separating him from Samantha and the kids — who are EJ’s heart. The drug may even erase EJ’s memory of Samantha and his life and relationship with her and the kids.

    Of all my “thoughts” regarding EJ’s “death”, I think the third one would be the most likely.

    How did I do? I really would like to read feedback on this one. I also hope Ali Sweeney hears about the third one. I would be interested to hear her take on it….Although, she probably couldn’t say anything, especially if it is really what happened.

    Your third idea is certainly in line with the way Stefano operates. He has proven he does not mind keeping his children in line with some terrible punishments over the years.

    Third one seems doable. But I don’t think Stefano would purposely keep his grandchildren with Sami? If anything he would have tried to destroy EJ and take th kids. But in the scene when Stefano finds out EJ is dead, he seems sincerely upset, heartbroken. I originally thought that EJ, The gunman, Rafe and the paramedics and planned this whole thing, to truly get away from Stefano. EJ kept saying that is what they had to do, and he would go to any limits.The paramedics called his death pretty quickly. Maybe the Hollywood guys are working with EJ aswell, and wen Sami gets there, EJ is there waiting for her and the kids. I find it odd that suddenly she’s heing wisked to Hollywood, and even more odd that they are offering Will a job for him and his family to live in Hollywood aswell! It’s EJ orchestrating the whole thing. To make sure him, sami and their family could all be together. (One can only hope) lol. I really wanted them to leave together :(

    The perfect ending today would have been when she rushed back into the mansion to get her photo album she should have grabbed EJ’s photo and ashes on the mantel and then have Sami look back and see Colleen and Santo walking into the sunset……….

    Sami left poor old EJ’s ashes on the mantel in the mansion and left for LA. EJ who? I know the ashes aren’t EJ’s, but Sami thinks they are. I’m sure they had to move it quickly because of her contract running up, but they sent her to LA to quick.

    It was nice they had everyone say a special good-bye to her. They played that out very nice. You can see the true feelings emerge from everyone on the show that said good-bye to her. Great, great show. I’m glad they had Lucas on the final day. I always thought Lucas and Sami made the best couple. I wonder if the truth about little johnny being Lucas’s son will ever be revealed now?

    If any program can bring EJ back, it would be this one. He does have the Phoenix in his blood, don’t forget. Look at Tony – they could bring him back. What a hot guy he was! I hope they can bring James Scott back. He and Sami were the perfect couple for a soap opera!

    I think EJ set this up with this drug dealer in order to get away from his father. I believe he will at some point reveal himself to Sami ( behind the scenes) Sami will return to salem eventually with surprise that will shock everyone. I think the couple will end moving away to be with EJ’s mom until they either return down the rod or recast.

    to me if this was the end of Ej it was a very shocking end. We alll know he was going to leave this show anyway, but I can’t see this being the end.

    I am so sad that Ej is dead. I liked him and Sammy. After Sammy is gone I think I’ll stop watching it. They were the best. And I like Kristen too. I was so hoping Brady would keep her sane. Lol. She’s a nut, but a beautiful nut. I’m glad she’s come back for a little while. Alison did a great job acting and so did james. I’m going to miss them.

    My guess is the syringe contained the anti-coma drug Kristen procured that revived John.

    So if they bring EJ back, the drug worked; if not, no mention of the scene in the morgue.

    Voila!
