Days of our Lives James Scott (EJ DiMera) is the main feature interview in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, so make sure to pick up a copy!  In his chat, the talented fan favorite discussed a myriad of subjects including: the status of the long-awaited EJami reunion, working with the just returned Eileen Davidson (Kristen), and the Will and EJ relationship, where the actor admits he enjoyed working with Daytime Emmy winner, Chandler Massey (Will)!  Below are a few excerpts from the interview!

James on DAYS seemingly working toward an EJami pairing:  “They’re not really re-visiting it. They have never done it.  I think it’s about time, frankly. There is a good opportunity for story there. Alison Sweeney (Sami) and I work very well together.  It’s sort of a fairy tale.  They don’t play it so much now, but the Bradys and the DiMeras have a history.  You have these two waring families, and then this sort of love between these two people who should not really love each other. They do love each other.  Not in a romantic way, necessarily.  They care for each other very much.  I think there is always the potential to have a very powerful relationship.”

James on Eileen Davidson returning to DAYS as Kristen  “She is fantastic.   She’s a great actress.  I feel she’s a breath of fresh air on the show.  She’s one of those actors – love them or hate them, they’re just compelling to watch. They give performances that are very hard to turn away from. That is a great value to any show.”

James on if there might be a family reunion between EJ and his mother, Susan Banks,  played in the past by Davidson: “I feel like that was from an era of storytelling – there was a sensibility there and a kookiness that the show is actively trying to avoid.”

James on missing working with Chandler Massey and that the storyline between Will and EJ just stopped: “I was extremely disappointed. Aside from my own selfish reasons of just enjoying working with Chandler Massey very much, I thought it was a very interesting, unique dynamic on the show.  When you communicate directly with the audience, as I do on occasion, and you have a storyline that overwhelmingly and without exception is praised and embraced by the audience that I have spoken to, it’s always disappointing when something like that is killed.  From my perspective, it’s a great shame.”

So, soapers are you ready for the EJami romance to move forward 100%?   Do you miss the dynamic between Will and EJ?  Would you like to see Susan Banks and EJ deal with their mother/son relationship, now that Davidson is back in the fold at DAYS?  Weigh-in!

    Am I ready for an Ejami reunion? Jesus H. Christ, YES! It’s about bloody time! As for EJ and Will, it doesn’t surprise me that Gary Tomlin peed on the parade. That’s what he does best – take amazing characters and character dynamics, strip them of all personality, then stick them in his own ridiculous storylines to prop his own favourite characters and character dynamics, viewers, actors and likeability factor be damned. He kills Jack to get Jen back with Daniel. He has Rafe drop in from the ceiling of the safehouse like Batman and turns the Ejami story on its head just to give Rafe another turn to ride on Sami’s coattails. Gary Tomlin is a menace to soaps so long as he continues to write as though all these people are characters in his own personal Days fan fiction.

    I agree!!! Daniel is no Jack and never will be and frankly Jen is acting like a nut trying to protect him. Would have loved for them to keep Christie Clark on the show for Rafe and see where that could have went. Apparently Gary Tomlin loves writing for Ali and Arianne since those are the only two characters we see five days a week! yawn.

    I love your comment Kate. You Rock! Gary and Chris are the worst writers in history. Jack was and will always be an awesome character. Daniel cant compare and I hate Dannifer. Jennifer has become unbearable. Ejami rock and I want to see them together pleas. they have so much chemistry and they sparkle. If Gary I love Safe Tomlin wants to reunite God awful Safe maybe he should have them move to Stepford so I dont have to see Sami flip flopping between three men. That is not good for ratings but Ejami are.

    I cannot wait for an ejami reunion! It is about time. James said it best when he said, they are not revisiting….the two never had a chance to explore their feelings for one another. This is going to be great! I hope the writers do it justice!

    They really need to DROP EJAMI they suck together. As far as Will and EJ goes I’m really glad they are done, they gave me the willies. This soap just has pretty much Sucked for 6 years

    Lucy replied

    Ejami ROCK ! And they can’t ‘drop’ them since they never give them a chance anyway..eyeroll !

    Linda replied

    Oh yes they can drop Ejami Lucy, they can make Johnny Lucas’ son, make Sydeny EJ and Nicole’s daughter and have Ejami not even be any any SL’s together except to say high. They don’t have to be a couple to be drop so u know what u can do with your eye roll right. ;-)

    Crystal replied

    They likely would have dropped EJami a long time ago if the majority of the audience shared your opinion because they don’t seem to be interested in doing a EJ/Sami pairing but the pairing is too popular to drop. I believe EJ and Sami being an extremely popular pairing is the only reason why the writers have not have them moved on from each for good.

    They could someday make Johnny Lucas’ son (or Alli EJ’s daughter) but there’s no way that Nicole can be Sydney’s biological mother. History would have to be completely erased (along with Mia and the baby she was carrying) and rewritten in order to make Sydney, EJ and Nicole’s daughter.

    First off, I love that photo of James Scott. So hot!!
    I totally agree with him on all three points he made. Susan Banks should be left in the past; it was from a different time of kookiness and I don’t think Days should revisit that
    again – not when the soap genre is struggling.
    Secondly, they are missing the boat with Sami & EJ again by having her rush to Rafe. I like Galen & Ali and they have a nice chemistry but Sami & EJ are much hotter and she can be herself.
    Third — LOVED those Will/EJ scenes. I would have enjoyed Will having a crush on EJ if he didn’t already? Or maybe that’s why Will quit? I think that would be great dynamic to play.

    Greatest interview in a while. It took days fucking 6 years to get ejami right and hope they write a compelling story for them. These soaps these days are superficial and just go for adrenalin rush moments and drop the stories. Ejole, dancole cafe, racole,ejill etc could have been as success if they were given the time. Well I guess with safe they were just stagnant and blandered
    Why Will and Ej were separated I dont know!!! Why get rid of all the good dynamics romantic and non-romantic pairings on the show. There was a lot to explore on that ejill front in a non-romantic way, ej needs some kind of buddy who he could mentor and who also pulls him to do right! Lexie is gone and now he is left with steffy and kate…. One thing I am looking forward to is seeing Kristin DiMera seems like 2012 my wishlist is comming true. Ejami, Eric Brady, Kristin Dimera just to make it perfect I will ask for Tony Dimera to come back from the dead . He could be made into the new Phoenix Steffy is getting old and will soon need a replacement and Ej in my opinion does not fit the bill.
    I miss the days when characters were not isolated and mingled with each other in character driven stories and not plot-points which makes me as a viewer less invested in putting my time in this. It makes me feel apathetic because we know 3 months down the line a character will be different and things don’t make sense anymore.

    He’s always honest and candid, but never to the point of being rude. I really value his opinion and thoughts.

    I have said this about a bajillion times but I am SO excited to see JS opposite ED! I think having a sister again on screen for him is very important (RIP Lexie :( ) and as kooky as it may be, I’d just love to see him in some scenes with his mother. All these years, that’s a piece I always thought was missing- he worships his father so much, but that anchor you can only get from a mother is definitely needed for a character like EJ.

    As for EJami, stupid stupid stupid writers for going the SAFE route. I have a 3-way-tie-of-love between EJami, EJole and Lumi so I’m not entirely biased. Love EJami or hate them, THEY are what will bring in more internet and media chatter and overall more interest for the audience. They will bring in more eyeballs, and I’m not one to justify using a couple as a ratings draw, but they will. Their fans are rabid. Not going for them is exactly the opposite of what this show should be doing, for THEIR sake. So foolish. Such a dumb decision and I just can’t understand it.

    EJAMI is ALL i want!!! Totally agree about the trashing of the EJill relationship, EJ & Will had a great dynamic. This entire week has proven — repeatedly — what a joke the Sami/Rafe relationship is. Time for Sami Brady to grow up and have a real man. I don’t like the way his comments come off, for the most part, James has played EJ as IN LOVE with Sami his entire run. They absolutely love each other, and he and Alison play so well off each other! That’s what i want to see! EJ and Sami, and i LOVED EJ and Will, it’s amazing how Tomlin and Whitesell ruined all the layering and development in a matter of weeks! SMH.

    You bet I’m ready for an Ejami story. You might even say I’m over-ready. I’ve been waiting for an Ejami story ever since Sami ran across the hall to get the wrench back from a towel-clad EJ. It’s about frigging time! My only concern is whether Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell can write the kind of love story these two deserve. The material they have to work with is rich. Let’s hope they can avoid the plot-point writing that has characterized their work to date.

    And, yes, I miss EJ and Will. They were perfect together. Why did TomSell have to end it so prematurely? There ought to be a law against new head writers shutting down the successes of the former head writers. When something works, keep it!

    I can skip any scenes between EJ and his mum even though Kristen is back. James is right. This is a different show now. That past needs to stay in the past.

    If I got any more ready for EJAMI, I’d most likely go off like the grand finalle on the fourth of July…. seriously… NO OTHER couple brings me to a dead stop having me drop EVERYTHING else I have to do, in order to watch…. I’ve patiently been waiting for a TRUE EJAMI love story for 6 LONG years… CAN NOT WAIT to actually WANT to watch Days again!!!!

    EJami do love each other in a romantic way. I’ve watched the show for many years and I know what I see. This is just a spin Tomlin wanted him to put on it so we would believe Sami really loved Rat in a romantic way. Please don’t insult us. Safe is a joke!

    Reply

    Ugonna Wosu replied

    well, he said “not necessarily” in a romantic way. To me, it doesn’t mean their feelings aren’t romantic, but he’s saying whether it is romantic or not, they do and always WILL love each other. They are important to each other, and no one can deny that.

    I have been waiting for Ejami for 6 years. I’m beginning to believe that Days is just never going to go there. I just want Ejami to have one chance! James feels the same way I feel.
    I was devastated when they ended Ejill. It was a HUGE mistake to end that dynamic considering everyone was talking about how much they loved the interesting duo! As long as Tomlin is writing, the show is just going to get worse and worse. Tomlin doesn’t understand how to appeal to the audience. Days made a horrible deadly choice by rehiring Tomlin.

    All in all, great interview and I agree with everything James said. James Scott is the main reason many people watch this show. However, I don’t know how much longer people will tune in to watch Tomlin’s show that is all about his personal preference and not the viewers!

    I am ready for an Ejami reunion…they have the most natural chemistry I have ever seen in a soap couple. They should have been a couple a long time ago…not safe who bores us to death. As far as Ej & Wills relationship, I think it was a mistake to tear them apart as friends. They worked well with each other and I miss them. I think it’s time that TPTB start to listen to what the fans want and not pander to their pets. And the fans choice is Ejami<3

    YES I want EJami. Seems like forever but it’s only been 6 years. I also love the dynamic of Will and EJ.

    I don’t know who thought it was a good idea to totally flip a story upside down for “closure” but someone needs to sic Stefano on their rear.

    Dmitri replied

    EJami is crap. They’ve done awful things to each other, such as shooting and rape, and Sami has never loved him. I hope EJ is with someone who treats him right, not a woman who constantly chooses other men over him.

  21. Nicole says:

    I and many have waited 6 long years for EJami. I’ve been ready for quite sometime for their lovestory to be told. EJami deserves a chance to be together and recognized by NBC, Sony and DAYS as a true couple in order for this to be done. No more half stepping with this. It’s like we get brought to the edge only to be pulled back again, it’s not a good feeling. I tell you this I will not let Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whiteshell give me some retcon of another couples lovestory though. I do not accept Safe or any other of these creations that has been made under the new regime as acceptable. The couples are boring, unrootable, and stale. I want EJami and my love for this couple will never waiver. EJill was another relationship and friendship which I very much enjoyed watching that was DOA upon the new tptb/writers arrival. It was such ashame because Chandler Massey and James Scott worked so well together! James is an incredible person and highly respected actor, I throughly enjoy his frankness with us. I just hope the next interview we read is about EJami’s new beginnings. Thank you very much Micheal for doing this interview with James!

If they don’t do it now, I am done with this show.

    Sami is not the kind of girl that Rafe wants. He likes the clingy insecure type like Carrie or Nicole. Sami is too “real” for Rafe. Sami needs to be with EJ. But it looks like we are heading to another SAFE reunion and yeah, it’s sweet, but EJAMI is hot!

    Reply

    B.J. replied

    I’m with you, Cindy. Sami isn’t good enough for “perfect” Rafe, who *never* does anything wrong.

    E.J. and Sami should be together for so many reasons, as many have already said. :) I may be tuning out soon, if SAFE continues,
    because that, added to Nicole’s continued tricks and whining just doesn’t interest me. :(

    I’ve been ready for an EJami romance from the moment I set eyes on them years ago. I’ve never seen the kind of on screen chemistry James Scott & Alison Sweeney have together. The Brady/DiMera legacy is full of storyline potential & the stamp of destiny from the Santo & Colleen love story is in play as well. There hasn’t been a couple on the show who has such potential for greatness in a very long time. It isn’t just the chemistry it is the effortless emotional intimacy they share & the way they complete each other & balance each other out. Things are so easy & natural with James & Alison it seems the effortless effort for them to connect so deeply with one another, it makes it so easy for me to connect on an emotional level with EJami. Love them or hate them they are one of the most dynamic, complex & interesting couples the show has ever had.
    I could never understand why this couple was never given a chance or why the show would squander their potential the way they have. It is long past time that they get the epic romance they deserve.

    YES!!! Love James for his support of EJAMI and that they should be a couple! EJAMI have amazing chemistry and SHOULD be together. Days is so stupid for not writing them. We saw all those amazing EJAMI scenes this year and now we’re being tortured with SAFE.
    I also LOVED the EJ & Will story and really miss their scenes. I loved all the blackmail and the mentor/mentee relationship! Will especially was so fun to watch as a deceptive character!
    Right now Days is so unwatchable and I’m not enjoying much at all. I enjoyed the show so much this past year and now I fast forward through most episodes. What a letdown.
    I really wish we could finally get a romance for EJAMI and another storyline for EJ & Will – come on Days- listen to James!

    Bravo James…. You always say it like it is…. Days blows (or in James’ terms “kills”) every opportunity to shine and excel…. EJ and Sami’s story is a classic love story; and yet Days insists on the pushing the mundane and the blah…

    The “era of storytelling” to which James referred is no more… In its place is a bunch of plot points into which characters are thrown whether they are relevant or not…. I agree James… What Days has turned into is indeed a shame….. an absolutely unnecessary shame…. Days ineptness and bad choices verges on the criminal.

    Thank you, James, for your honesty, insight and integrity. It is never lost on your fans….

    I’ve got to go with EJ/Nicole. Mostly because Nicole doesn’t have the family dynamics to contend with by being with EJ as Sami does; and whether Sami realizes it or not she needs her family. EJ has always had a more than an outstanding physical relationship with both Nicole and Sami. Although each time EJ did hook up with Sami he had to use manipulation, threats or blackmail. With the exception on their night of grief sex which was pure unadulterated sex on both their parts.

    MaeMae – I disagree with your statement that each time EJ used manipulation, threats or blackmail the night that Sydney was conceived. That night was pure lovemaking.

    MaeMae replied

    When stepping back to the beginning of the story line that lead to EJ and Sami having sex the night Sydney was conceived is where the manipulation, threats and blackmail began. To stop Stefano from continuing with the vendetta against the Brady family, Sami had to divorce Lucas and marry EJ. EJ also paid Nicole to help him get to Sami by making her jealous. And we all know Sami can’t control her jealousy over Nikki! Without the vendetta Sami wouldn’t have been in the DiMansion, she wouldn’t of seen EJ with Nicole, Sami wouldn’t have gotten jealous she would of still been with Lucas and there would have been no sex.

    Lulu replied

    My Ej and Nicole are boring and where is the potential for GOOD storylines in this ? Seriously ?
    Ej and Sami have the chemistry, the potential for umbrella storylines, the complexity..you can’t even compare and finally they never had a real chance unlike Ej and Nicole (and it was boring by the way zzzzzzzzzzz)

    OMG! Thank you for posting this Michael! I can’t believe what I am FINALLY reading. It’s been such a long hard road….I am beyond thrilled Days is finally embracing the EJ Dimera/Samantha Brady forbidden love story!!!!!!!!!! This interview made me feel so much better. I was starting to feel used and abused again seeing pod Sami begging Rafe again. Ugh. It’s almost painful. It’s a double edged sword though because as much as I have YEARNED for their story to be told I am nervous as heck how GT & CW will write this story. I am hoping they embrace this couple and their true characters, this story could be AMAZING!!

    Love that photo, they should have EJ wear those glasses sometimes. Anyway, Ejami deserve their day. HEAR THAT WRITERS, GET US WHAT WE WANT. And I really like the idea of Will wanting to be a Dimera in training. A Brady/Horton wanting to hang out with the sworn enemy of both was really good. Shame they dropped the ball on that one. If Susan comes back lets hope they have matured her, so she more normal and less kooky this time. There can be a powerful storyline there with EJ and his mother, if they write it properly.

    I agree with James..they have wasted their opportunities of giving the viewers a Great EJ and SAMI LOVE STORY. James and Alison have a natural chemistry that other Soaps, or Shows would pay BIG MONIES…. I have not seen any great love between Rafe and Sami..Sami needs to change who she is to be with Rafe..and becomes a Stepford wife..

    6 years is far too long time to follow through with the unforbidden Romance they started they would have had a Winning Combination..

    1)So, soapers are you ready for the EJami romance to move forward 100%? 2) Do you miss the dynamic between Will and EJ? 3)Would you like to see Susan Banks and EJ deal with their mother/son relationship, now that Davidson is back in the fold at DAYS?

    1) HELL YES!!! Like James said, it’s about time! I hope it’s not just a tease to go back to Safe AGAIN. I just can’t with that sanctimonious pairing.

    2) Yes, yes I do. I hadn’t been liking Will and then EJ made me like him. I was surprised and intrigued at their building friendship/partnership. It was good.

    3) Sure, why not? As long as I can still get Ejami. I do enjoy seeing my favorites interact with several different characters and build relationships outside of his or her pairing as well. I’d love to see EJ with both of his parents and his brother….I miss his relationship with Lexi. :(

    I do not miss EJ and Will at all! In fact, I was thrilled to see that relationship finally end! No disrespect to James Scott and Chandler Massey, who are very talented and do work well together, but Will’s worship of EJ quickly became boring and repetitive. I am so happy to see Will paired with Sonny now, although it is obvious that the writing for them leaves a lot to be desired. It’s about damn time the show stopped stalling Will’s love life and started moving the long-awaited WilSon romance forward! Hope they keep it up and do it justice!

    Am I ready for EJami to be done properly? Hell yeah I am! I’ve been waiting 6 long years & the detours Days has taken have been downright horrible. Other soaps would KILL to feature a pairing with the kind of buzz & chemistry that James & Alison have together. The fact that Days has done everything in their power NOT to capitalize on that chemistry for ratings makes me think that it’s like they’re actively looking to get the show cancelled.

    In a way, I miss Will & EJ’s dynamic because while they’ve parted on good terms, they haven’t even shared strictly friendship scenes since Will resigned & I consider that poor continuity. In another way though, I accept the show’s argument that Will needed to have more screentime with characters of his own age because under MarDar, they showed plenty of EJill, but sometimes to the detriment of WilSon development or Will’s other friendships with the teen scene.

    Finally, I’m looking forward to see Eileen Davidson’s Kristen going toe to toe with EJ. Would I have liked to see ED in the role of Susan Banks? Yes, at least once. But I also understand the show’s desire to keep away as much as possible from the camp element.

    They could have wrote a Will/Sonny romance with a Ej/Will business partnership, sort of friendship as some angst for the Will and Sonny pairing which would have make a far more compelling, interesting and multi-layered story for Will ! But no these writers just destroy everything and now what we have ? Some boring ‘cute’ filler Will/Sonny touching hands scenes, awkward smiles at Carolie’s pub..so so captivating, really..

    PS: JS is absolutely correct in his assessment of EJ and Will’s relationship. Most fans loved watching them, loved EJ mentoring Will, supporting each other, EJ being the big brother he never had and each others truth tellers.

    After a rocky start they were becoming great friends.

    Oh please, EJami is NOT the show! EJ sucks the life out of DOOL. Can’t stand him. I think he would have better chemistry with Will as his gay lover. JS could play a gay man as well as Chandler does. The term ‘forbidden love’ would finally come true with those two.

    NO EJAMI

    Over the last 17 months, there have been 3 writing regime changes, and the resulting lack of continuity has caused Days to suffer. Each succeeding team has work diligently to wipe away what their predecessors had envisioned. To redirect storylines, the concept of “closure” has been foisted upon the viewers. Since Gary Tomlin has returned as head writer, there’s fear for some and joyous anticipation for others. Who will end up being happy and who will destined to be sad is still an unknown. Unfortunately, both EJ/Will and EJ/Sami were caught in the middle of yet another reset.

    The EJ/Will friendship was refreshing and unique, and I still don’t understand the decision to completely remove the characters from each others’ orbits. Straights and gays interact all the time, and so do people of different age groups. It almost appears like the new writers have segregated characters into their own special groupings, and that’s not very satisfying for the audience. Heck. Will’s scenes with Sami are few and far between. It was unnecessary and unrealistic for Will to abruptly leave EJ”s employ, and the reasons he gave for quitting were pretty silly. However the biggest about face has to be Sami turning on EJ. For gosh sakes, the cliffhanger had her standing in front of EJ to protect him. Yet a week or so into the new writers stories, she suddenly wants to return to the man who lustfully followed the path of a melting ice cube as dripped down between Sami’s sister’s boobs. A man who Sami’s own mother encouraged Carrie to pursue. Pretty nutty.

    Anyway, I hope the writers do the character of Sami a huge favor and pair her with EJ. The girl needs to get her mojo back, and it sure can’t be found under Rafe’s thumb. I’m also making ritual sacrifices to the soap gods so that Will finds himself in need of a good paying job with great benefits and decides to give his resume to EJ. I pray there is a soap heaven.

    Ready for EJami? Oh yeah. This intense, compelling, multi-layered couple is way, way, way overdue. No guts, no glory, Days. You were perfectly positioned to tell an epic story post-Daysaster, and ya wimped out. Screw your courage to the sticking point. Tell the EJami story. Tell it boldly. Tell it right. People will come. Look at the ratings before and after the Olympics. People did come. Then you ran to a failed, boring, unengaging pairing. Ratings tanked. Embrace EJami. Save the franchise.

    I’m probably the only one here (and elsewhere), but I could no stand the EJ and Will scenes! Fast-forwarded it all! Too awkward and bizarre! Never ever would a real-life EJ let himself be blackmailed by a young boy like Will! That power-play/struggle was just too unreal/unbelievable. And the fact that both actors could not stop smiling all the while they were talking about murder, cheating, blackmail (ok ok I did see bits of their scenes, but only to make sure I didn’t miss any of the Will storyline!), made no sense to me and irked me to no end! I like EJ’s character a lot an a mentor-mentee storyline, without all that illegal and power weirdness going on but with Will crushing on EJ would have been interesting, especially if they had brought Sonny into that storyline making him jealous – THAT would have worked for me! *sigh* [And Michael, when oh when is there going to be a joint Freddie/Chandler interview?? Pretty pleeeeze! (o;]

    Oh for God’s sake! If they don’t understand that a huge number of people have been pulling for EJami for years, they are never gonna get it. Honestly, no one I know personally who watches this show likes Safe, yet we have been subjected to it repeatedly. I am beginning to think idiots run this show! Do they watch what is popular in the entertainment world? Do they not understand that people LOVE dark, forbidden, sexy pairings? People have had enough of the goody goodies of Salem always winning. Once in a while it’s a sinful pleasure to watch the bad boy win.

    Love, love, EJami! James Scott and Alison Sweeney have such natural chemistry my tv screen is on fire from the sparks that fly between EJ and Sami! Safe is boring and so sickening I want to throw up! If I didn’t like my tv so much, I would throw something at it because of all of the negativity that I’ve seen toward EJ this past week! TomSell are horrible writers! They write for their fav, Rafe and that is it! James Scott is a magnificent actor with sex appeal that oozes from my tv screen so I would love to see him have a relationship with the woman he has loved for the past six years! TomSell should be the next head writing team that is shown the door before they do so much damage to DOOL that the viewers leave in droves! Give EJill back to us, too! James and Chandler are awesome together – I loved Will working for EJ! I hope that we are given EJami and EJill again!

    Ready for Ejami? YES oh YES! James explained exactly the reasons why there is so much storyline potential in this pairing so much angst in the deep rooted connection without triangles. EJami against Salemites there’s enough angst drama that could be so compelling. It makes for great soapy drama story telling just waiting to be tapped into. I get so excited just thinking about how amazing Days could be if they tell Ejami love story. James is right there is no reunion they have never really been a couple. I’m so ready to finally see EJami union be together passionate powerful in shades of grey! YEAH

    I totally agree regarding the unique dynamics between James and Chandler too. I feel bad for Chandler knowing he won an Emmy for his performance in the gay coming out storyline. Gary just tossed all that progress away. Away from the show,away from talented Chandler and sadly away from viewers who were invested in this grey shaded complex Will. Now he is boring sleeping with a female was not wise I can’t imagine all the viewers the show had gained because of Will’s identity story would want to watch hi
    go from awesomely dynamic to white washed weak Horton boy with gay issues. It’s just a sad thing to see the waste of such potential. I think a real love triangle between Brian, Sonny and Will would be way better and keep Will being the scheming deceitful opportunist give Chandler challenge not this contrived propping of sub characters.

    I really looking forward to Kristen coming back. I hope it brings more great dynamics and new stories with DiMeras

    This a bit off topic but does anyone know if they are recasting the character Bo? If not I was thinking Hope would make a better match for Rafe than Sami. If that happened, what would their couple name be Hafe or Rope? Also, has anyone else notice the chemistry brewing between Brady and Jenn? I know in reality Jenn is supposed to be twice his age, but they SORAS’s Brady and the actors playing them don’t look that far apart. So I can see them getting together as they deal with their grief. And lasting am I the only one who thinks it time Roman gets some action? This poor man hasn’t had a date in how many years? Why? Perhaps now that they have introduced a gay storyline we will find out Roman is a deeply closeted gay man, who because of his generation pretended to be straight. It could explain why his marriages and relationships have all failed. Plus I can see the scene in mind right now, Will and his buddies are at the gay bar, he looks over and sees his grandfather with some dude. I would literally pay money to see the look on Will’s face if that happened.

    There is great potential for EJAMI as a couple. It is ridiculous that Days won’t put them together. I want the previous writers back because they wrote some great EJAMI scenes and it seemed we were finally going to get an EJAMI romance, but the new writers had to ruin it. Very disappointing. EJAMI have a ton of chemistry and would be a hot duo.

    I also really enjoyed the EJILL dynamic and that we saw a darker Will. I hate that Will is boring now. I wish that Will would back to working for or with EJ. James and Chandler have a great on screen chemistry and need to continue to have more scenes together!

    Give us EJAMI and EJILL!

    Would it help if we begged for Ejami? because I thought that’s what the fans have been doing for years, I was so excited when Sami ran away with EJ (and I ignored the crap about leaving her kids behind, the only reason Soap’s have kids is for paternity scandals, and future stars, otherwise they’re invisible) because I thought.. Finally, there are no lies or secrets between them, they’re equals and this will work. But no-o DOOL had to crush my dreams by putting Safe back into play :(

    From the moment EJ walked into Salem and he and Samantha first met Ejami have been DESTINED to be together! Poor decisions and writing choices by the powers to be at Days is what stuffed it all up. They truly missed the mark and have wasted so many hours, days, weeks, months and years keeping them apart. After 6 years I agree with James “its about time frankly!”
    Ejami are as popular as ever. Survey and survey (even on there own NBC/Days of our Lives site) proves it. Ejami continually come out on top and come out as the couple the majority of Days fans want to see paired together. For the Days PTB to continue to neglect or refuse to put them together is just ludicious. So come on Days get on board with the large portion of your fans… enough is enough, just go there ALREADY! I had to laugh as even Lumi and Safe fans have admitted…. we’ve had our time, Ejami deserve there’s.
    As for the EJ and Will relationship just being stopped like that. Shows me again the Days powers to be don’t really understand their audience. Everybody was loving the whole about turn in EJ and Wills relationship. It had grown, matured and come to a place of mutual understanding. I too miss their dynamics and hope Will goes back and works for EJ so they interact again. EJ and Wills improved relationship also opened wide the door to Ejami and a happy Ejami family. So writers bring it on…. Ejami and Ejami family :)
    PS: Would LOVE to see Allie end up being EJs daughter as well. EJ has always been there for her and has treated her as his own from day 1 (several times we see Sami feeling like she had to remind EJ she’s not your daughter she is “supposedly” Lucas’s). And we see Allie loves EJ too…. so I would love it as I hate it when Johnnie and Sydney get daddy and mummy time and she’s left out. Remember the official family portrait EJ arranged to be taken in 2010. It was of Ejami and all the kids. Would like to see this surface and be hung up somewhere too.

    I am SO READY for EJAMI. I can’t believe it’s been six years. Sami’s relationship wit Rafe has done so much damage to the character. I’m hoping EJami will turn Sami back into the Sami we love again (the one I was seeing and enjoying again until Rafe was written back into her orbit and undid all the amazing progress she’s made over the course of the past year). And add me to the list of people who were sad to see the Wilvis relationship come to an end. I loved watching those two together, and the relationship brought out a better, stronger, more interesting Will. I’m already losing interest in the character again. Putting him in the same orbit as irritating characters like Gabi (who still hasn’t paid for what she did to Melanie and, by the looks of it, probably never will) and Nick (a character I used to love who, through his association with Gabi is already getting on my nerves) has already done a great amount of damage to a character I couldn’t get enough of as recently as just a few months ago.

    Yes, I would like to see a ‘real’ passionate/romantic relationship with Ej and Sami for awhile any way. They have only teased at it, had the continuous triangle with Ej/Sami/Rafe (which gets boring after a while), and they have done their love/hate/grief sex, etc., but would be good for them to have a ‘real’ relationship for several months anyway, and see how it goes.
    This could tie in and continue the Will/Ej relationship which was an interesting dynamic. Also, would be good to have EJ interact with his mother and see him in the mother/son dynamic. They need to keep trying some different things instead of keep reverting back to the same trianglular relationships.

    1.) I LOVE SAMI WITH ANYONE( Rafe,EJ, Lucas). But It feels a little to safe, if they pair Sami with Rafe. And it feels neutral with, Lucas . AND THE FIREWORKS BELONGS TO EJ. SAMI AND RAFE: they are the safe choice, everytime when they are together, the writers are making Sami into this whiny person. And they are safe to play around with. In their relationship and Sami lies more. And that she puts on the brakes, when it comes to their relationship. SAMI AND EJ: *****THEY ARE THE IT COUPLE. ***** I think Sami has more CHEMSTRY and sparks with the fathers to her children. (LUCAS AND EJ) When it comes to EJ, they always have had this LOVE/HATE RELATIONSHIP. THAT’S CLASSIC IN MOST BOOKS AND TV SHOWS. WHICH TURNS OUT TO BE, THE PERFECT COUPLE. OF ALL TIME. I didn’t watch Eileen Davidson yet, on days. I heard her characters, is one that you love to hate. On days of our lives.

    As always Michael thank you for doing the interview and as always James is a true professional when replying to the answers.

    So, do I want to see Ejami? Yes, but only if it is written in a commendable, believable and entertaining manner. I am not sure that the present writing team of Tomlin and Whitesell truly have it in them, BUT I do believe that Lorainne B (I believe a dialogue writer) actually DOES have the ability to write the scenes that ARE needed to make the Ejami story one that people will want to watch.

    I so miss seeing believable, entertaining stories on Days. IMHO they have a writers dream in the pairing of Sami and EJ in addition to the pairing of Will and EJ. These three characters are grey and multi- layered, not flat and boring like Rafe, Roman, Abe, Marlena, the list goes on.

    I pray that the leaders of Sony, NBC and or Days truly take into consideration that there is a very large amount of fans whom WANT to be entertained in an intelligent manner, no whiplash and or lack of loyalty to history of a character. Just because you did not create the character does NOT mean that the character should be thrown away. A truly talented and knowledgeable writer can take ANY character and develop them and make them believable and multi – layered., where as a lazy writer writes only from THEIR point of view.

    Again thank you!

    Thank you James for saying exactly how Ejami fans have felt all these years. I too believe it is time for Ejami’s story to be told. I’m a firm believer that the constant change in writers have been the problem here. I’m starting to wonder that the writers do not write Ejami because they don’t know how. They’ve messed it up and do not know how to fix it. I really thought they were finally going in the right direction before the daysaster episodes, but the new writing team messed that up as well. Every time writers are changed the story is lost.

    The reason I started watching Days faithfully was because of Ejami. James you are correct in saying that there is so much history with the DiMera’s and the Brady’s, and they could do so much with that alone. Again, I’m not sure why they do not work with that information and write a good story line. What’s better than writing about two people who are in love but shouldn’t because of their family genes? The beauty of Ejami is that even after being apart for years, these two still sizzle when they come together. Most of the time couples lose their sparkle when they are not in scenes together, but not Ejami, in fact, they seem to get hotter. Lumi and Safe have been given their chance and I’m sorry but they have lost their sizzle.
    When I watch Days, I WANT drama!! Ejami delivers that in spades. EJami has endured some real crazy story lines, because of incapable writers, yet they still come out and deliver awesomeness.

They have such a great potential and during 6 years no writers have been able or dared to wright a good, romantic and compelling lovestory for these two. It is beyond me!!! Like James said, IT IS ABOUT TIME! So please writers dont disapoint us ejami fans again. For me as a fan, if I get fooled again and the most boring couple on daytime called “safe” is thrown down our throats again and Ej ends up like a looser, then I will be done with the show for good. I will feel sorry for the show that they cant seem to understand that ejami is the way to go if they want days to still be on the air for more years to come.

    I have also waited 6 years for the EJAMI story to be told. I have a wait and see attitude for the return of Eileen Davidson. She is a superb actress. I am hoping that her storyline is not primarily with John and Marlena. That would be a waste. I do miss EJ and Will working together on the show. It was a great pairing of mentor and pupil with depth and humor.

    I am still in the DAYS demographic – even though I have been watching the show since I was 7 years old. This is a critical time to tell interesting stories. Days needs to immediately begin telling those interesting stories. Right now, they are not telling interesting stories. And the ratings show it. Also, the advance taping schedule is very damaging to the show. When stories do not work, there is no way to change trajectory for 3-4 months.

    Days seems to be running 100 miles an hour in the wrong direction. I hope it turns around and fully utilizes James Scott, Ali Sweeney and Chandler Massey together for great EJAMI and EJill stories. They need to begin now. I want this iconic to stay on air and with good storytelling. Days fans have suffered through so many poor writing regimes. It is time to reward the fans with a compelling show.

    James Scott has the talent of no other on Days or any other Soap. By all means let there be an EJAMI relationship which will last until the end of time. Just coming close to a relationship is plain teasing the audience. James works so well with Chandler should not mean putting a stop to it. The writers just get something good going and then for whatever reason decide to halt the whole storyline. There should be some kind of closure to all storylines in the soaps. I bet the actors invovled would like closure on some of these storylines. JAMES you are a delight to watch on the screen.

    Jen didn’t kill Nicole’s baby. Nicole found out the baby would be still born earlier that day, which means the baby was dead before she took the fall. So either Nicole cannot face that truth and honestly thinks Jen is to blame or she knows she is lying in order to drive a wedge between Daniel and Jen. But either way I think having Nicole lose another baby so late in term, was unnecessary. Plot wise it would had more potential if the baby had lived. Maybe it was just another writer undoing something a previous writer had set up, but it was the wrong choice. The character is whiny, but she deserves some happiness in life, choosing to have her lose this baby was just cruel.

    Ejami is long overdue and when it looked like they might be getting together I couldn’t miss an episode. Now I’m recovering from whiplash as they have Sami falling all over Rafe, again. I either ff Safe or just don’t watch. This show needs something different and exciting and that is Ejami. As James said they have never been given a chance as a couple. Sami needs to be the grey character she was meant to be and that doesn’t mesh with Rafe. She needs to be with the only man who has loved her for who she is the good, the bad and everything in between and that man is Ej. So sick of her being with men who scold and treat her like a child. I want a dynamic grey Ejami couple raising their kids and taking on all of Salem while keeping me hooked with their amazing chemistry. But knowing TPTB this is yet another bone Ejami fans are being thrown to keep us watching. No more bones, this show needs Ejami.

    James Scott is fantastic, but no more EJAMI please! the coupling was ruined when the character FORCED Sami into the pairing decades ago! James belongs with Nicole – ejole is more powerful couple than ejami….

    James doesn’t belong with Nicole, James is not a fictional character and Nicole is fictional doesn’t exist..eyerolllllllllllllllllllll And by the way Ejole is trash, glad it is over and hope this nightmare will never happen again, he should just get revenge on her.

    Whoa! LOVE all the support for EJAMI and EJILL on here, but not surprised since these are 2 great duos with lots of fan support! Especially EJAMI! Now if only the writers would notice and actually write a real romance for EJAMI and more story for EJILL.

    Ej and Sami are the BEST thing Days has but sure they waste it..what a shame, it seems by JS interview these writers will once again waste them in the futur..well their loss, i will not watch Ej and Sami being paired with other boring characters, so if they want to lose again viewers, their problem..by the way i am in the demos !

    Yes,..please have Eileen Davidson play Susan as well. I havent watched DAYS in over 10 years, and have deliberately started watching it because Eileen Davidson is back on.
    Please dont disappoint. The veteran actors are really the only reason most people are watching (including myself). Daytime dramas are not very desireable, and dont seem to attract younger viewers like when I was younger. So they should be targeting my demographic and keep the former actors returning! I will DVR this show as long as Davidson is on.

    The characters of Sami and EJ are in dire need of a cleansing since they have dissolved into caricature form: Sami the self-involved, petulant aging teenybopped, and EJ, Sir Snarl and Smirk with too many resources at his fingertips and a hunger for everything he sees. They have become soap opera cliches. Neither character has grown or learned one damn thing in the last 5 years.

    Regarding the relationship between EJ and Will: it was interesting, but still forced since it was based on blackmail/extortion rather than mutual respect. Too bad, too, since a true friendship between EJ and Will would have brought something real to the show.

    I am looking forward to the return of Kristin and then the return of Stefano.

    To Whom It May Concern: I love James & Ali They truly have an amazing gift! I have had many people ask me why do you like Ejami so much?I I think when a couple can reach through the screen & make you feel & believe what you are watching is real.I think they have truly defined the meaning of the word acting.In spite of lousy writing they are still truly amazing!I think it is such a waste that their talents are not being fully used!I have seen couples on Days be together for years on end;that did not have half the story potential & talent this pairing has!I understand this is a Soap Hello!? I think Ejami fans are the MOST Loyal Fan Base EVER;SiX YEARS! The Lumies & Safes have had tons of time together!
    We want the story that we have been waiting for! I may be just a Fan;but I know what we want A Good Old Fashion Romance !!!!!!!! (Dating,Kisses, Sex, Falling in Love, Etc Etc. They are the Scarlet & Rhet of our time! The New Writers (The Tomlin Gang) I know they can write itlthe Safe house stuff was good!I think I am sorry to say The Writers are writing what they want or wrote! I feel they have no respect for the fans,stories,show or the INTEGRITY OF THE CHARACTERS! i AM SORRY WE HAVE TO SUFFER BECAUSE DAYS IS WRITTEN BY EGOMANIACS!!!!! wE ARE TIRED OF BABY SWITCHING, LOSE THE BABY, BLACKMAILING ALL THE TIME! IS THAT ALL YOU KNOW TOMLIN? 2010 WASN’T ALL THAT GREAT BABE!!!!!!!! Now please don’t get me wrong bringing back Stephano was the one thing that Tomlin did right! Now I am all for the Dimeras being the Villins;they have enough goody goods in Salem! I don’t want Ej & Sami to stop being bad & good that is why we love them! Except Tomlin you writing this down?????? With eachother total honesty & commitment! Can you imagine Stephano Kristin Ej < Sami & Chad Kate too!!! They could Rock this town!!!!!Sami needs to be who Sami is & stop trying to be a Carrie Clone!!! Who the hell wants that???? I think Sami is afraid to be loved so deeply.I think even though they screwed up;they cans still get it right!!!!!!! The time is Now!!!!!!!!!! This back & forth needs to stop it is Unfair to the viewers!! It needs to be all or nothing!!!!!!!!! Why should a man like Ej have to lie & scheme to get Sami? Give the guy back his dignity make her but chase him & we can all relax!!!!!!If they don't resolve this matter asap! I am hitting the road Jack & so will the millions of Ejam accross the world!!!! Do you know how many there are!!! Do your research Buddy! One more chance that;s It!!!!!!

    Please Pease Please let Sami and EJ get together and have a real relationship. We all know its possible. The chemistry they have is something the show is in much need of. The sexual tension between the two is incredible.

    I have impatiently waited for years for this. I hoe the writers allow Ejami to fall in love ratherthan just throwing them together. Furthermore, I hope their relationship mirrors Stephano and Kates relationship. Both were bad to the core but their love was very endearing. (I was dissapointed when they ended that relationship!)

    Also, James Scott is soo fine that he has the potential to lure new viewers to the show. What are they doing to market the show to ensure the survival of Days?

    And I was thinking if Days ever got cancelled they could spin it off into a night time soap and call it Nights of Our Lives and I would still get to see James and Eric and Galen and the new guy that is coming to play Samis brother. They are all sooo fine:-)

    I have been ready for more EJ and Sami for more than 6 long years. I can’t wait and am looking so forward for these two being together. They need a business trip to romantic Italy, with no one giving advice and getting into the way of their love. Writers the sky is your limit with these two. We know you are writing a great love story for these two. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I’m LOVING Ejami!! I can’t stay away from Days now!! I’ve waited an eternity for their real chance to come, I’m in heaven now it has!!! I’m praying it won’t end, and terrified some idiot writer will take it away from me coz I can’t watch when their with other people it makes me ill!! Ej and nicmole is the worst for me! It causes me actual physical gut churning pain to watch so I don’t and won’t!! Viva La EJAMI!!!! Tots agree that Ejill was a beautiful pairing for both of them and Will really needs Ej’s insight and guidance with the Baby & Nick storyline. Ejill would have to be a fan favourite with a massive gay following, what could be better for ratings than putting Ej in that mix for the gay fans to drool over, it’s a no brainer!! Alison Sweeney is Awesome, there is no bigger day time star then her so, Ali haters can just keep eating her dust!!!!! Your in the minority and you now it!!!

    We all LOVE Ejami here in Australia! We had to wait forever for them to finally be together and now Abigail is ruining it and Allison Sweeney is leaving the show. So upsetting. I hope the writers let us have from now until Allison’s last day on days for it to be about Ejami and their true love. Why do the writers keep hurting Ejami? They are the best couple in soap history!
