430 June 9th, 2010 DAYS Ken Corday on SAFE vs. Ejami conclusion come Labor Day?

OK, the battle lines are drawn!  Round Two. DAYS, SAFE Vs. Ejami fans! You have come out in droves to tell us  what “hottie” Sami Brady ultimately end up with.  And while On-Air On-Soaps is still tallying up your votes from your fantastic and passionate comments, a new interview surfaced today with Soap Opera Network with Days of our Lives, executive producer Ken Corday.   The top gun at DAYS had been on a press tour heavily promoting his new book and memoirs.  So when asked the question of where Sami and her romantic life is headed, here was his answer!

Corday on EJ/Rafe/Sami: “I truly believe the viewers want Sami and Rafe together. You know, Sami can be her own worst enemy and this time she’s not doing it in a vindictive way. She’s just being pulled in by this not so nice guy [EJ]. That will come to a conclusion sometime right after Labor Day. I think viewers will be very happy to see Sami being the strong Sami, who is taking things into her own hands. I wish I could tell you the plot points, but I can’t! I can say you can expect a lot of surprises and viewers will get what they want.”

So do you still think EJ still has a fighting chance for Sami,  or is going to be now and forever Rafe ?

    I don’t think EJ will have anything to do with Sami for at least a while especially when the truth comes out, but that may be a good thing. He is boring as hell with her, for me totally unwatchable. Put him with Ari, Nicole, Brady, Rafe or Stuntman #3 and I’m totally interested, but with her he just becomes this liar that a lot of the EJAMI fans throw under the bus and act like he’s a puppet and all the bad he does is totally controlled by his father. I want to see a real man come out and that seems not to happen with Sami.

    Corday….Keep him out of her orbit & keep him watchable.

    EJ better have a fighting chance. We all expected Sami to reunite with Rafe after finding out about the Sydnapping…but hopefully after a couple of or a few months, things come full circle to Ejami, where they began, with Sami realizing she started this baby-lying thing and forgiving and reuniting with EJ. I watch DOOL for EJ and Sami mostly, so I sure hope September isn’t the start of Safe forever & ever…that it’s a stop on the way to Ejami. No other couple can beat Ejami for me in the chemistry, potential, or “how much are they in love” or “how perfect are they for each other” departments.

    If EJ would just tell Sammi the truth now and let the chips fall where they may I might be fooled for a while into believing he loves her. BUT he wont. I get that Ejamies want them together but once they get there then what? you think sammi is gonna deal with him selling drugs? or just the fact that he is a Criminal,she isnt Nicole she wont play the quiet wife. so Do we really want to see the rapist trat Sammi as he did Nicole? I sure dont. Sammis not evil. She has done some aasenine things yes, but in her defense she was a minor for the “rape” she commited,as well as kidnapping her sister. her reasons were different as well. 1 she was a child who wanted her parents together since her intire childhood was a sham thanks to Staefano and with Austin like some teen age girls she became infatuated with him. but again she was a child. not a grown man (with a gun whod just shot John) compare all you like but honestly there is none!! You cannot compare a child to an adult and thats that!! I want EJ to truly find love and be loved with no strings or lies!! im hoping thats Ari. Safe all the way(since I cant have my Lumi ending)

    Kiren replied

    Are you kidding? Did you just say EJAMI fans throw Sami under the bus every chance they get? I go on the boards nearly every day and its always been the Rami and Lumi fans ripping Sami (and Ali) apart. Of course we trash Rami and Rafe, but I don’t recall one time when EJami’s trashed Sami. It’s always Been Rami fans! Just recently Ali was attacked on twitter by Rami fans for saying something nice about EJami. EJami’s hav never personally attacked Ali once, not every day for 2 years Safe were together or whenever she said something nice about them on twitter!

    Kelly replied

    LOVE EJAMI and only EJAMI. I only watch DOOL now because of EJAMI and have been a fan for most of my life. I just don’t care for Sami when she is with Rafe. Rafe needs somebody that can follow his instructions and be the good little ole’ wife that he demands and that isn’t Samantha Brady. She has never been that way, so unless they plan to change her character, then SAFE will never be believable! I watched Sami and Lucus grow up and now I am ready for Sami to have a mature, yet fun and enjoyable relationship where she can be herself! I love the chemistry between EJAMI. Bring on great storylines between the Dimera and Brady’s!!! I’d love to see Lucus come back with a new love. Lucus and Sami make wonderful friends and we need to see all of Sami’s kids. With Lucus gone, we never see Ali. No more SAFE or I will finally stop watching DOOL. Four years have been too long to wait, so I hope that EJAMI can be the supercouple that they are meant to be!

    I love Ej with Arianna. He is so unlike himself. I don’t want him anywhere with Sami, the woman he raped. No, fans will not just let that slip under the bus like Ejami fans want us too. I want Ejanna together and I want Bryan Dattilo back on screen. I want him to have a good story line. Make him a Dimera and make him and Ej get into a brawl over da mansion and other things.
    Bryan should be back on the show.

    You may not have noticed but Ejami’s are also fans.

    Ej being unlike himself is not a good thing just like it’s not a good thing Sami isn’t like herself with Rafe.

    Kiren replied

    Don’t try to insinuate that all fnas think like yourself, and any fans other than the present vocal EJami fans don’t want EJami, FL is gaining new members every day who are falling in love with EJami. Even vocal bloggers like DaysTalk show preference to EJami as of late.

    Julia replied

    Ej and Arianna ? Please it would just be just ridiculous : she is the woman he accused of kidnapping his daughter whereas she did not do anything to him (unlike Sami or Nicole), he also manipulated, lied and conned her with the Drug business story..And she is also a good girl who will certainly not accept his life as a Dimera criminal..even the idea is just ludicrous ! So this idea is just a way to separate Ej from Sami as usual..you are really transparent..it you want another love-interest for Ej at least be a little worthy : a new character plays by a new actress..anyway it is even funny to read you so concerned about Ej and his love life since you hate the character..lmao.

    Cat replied

    Ejami has the best chemistry of all of them. I mean they have so much history and have done so much and are back to a point of trying to make the best of a situation. Safe is boring. Like how can you continue a plot for them if they were to get togehter. BORRRRRRRRINGGGGGGGG!!! I mean they might be nice with each other but who wants to watch that? it’s fun watching the chemistry between ej and sami because they fight and they want to make up so bad. Look how many times they have tried to get back together. Geez writers, write it in already. They are a SUPERCOUPLE.

    You have hit the nail right on the head!!!!!! GO EJAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only reason why I watch Days @ this point and time is because of EJAMI not boring safe,rafe needs to find a woman just as boring as he is… Keep Days going choose EJAMI the only SUPERCOUPLE I want to see.

    cat replied

    Totally agree!!! go EJAMI!!!!!!

    cinnamon replied

    there is no way Ejami is a super couple. How can someone be a super couple when everything is based on lies and maniupations.
    That is all Ejami is ever been.
    Lies and Manipulations. Ej has to lie and manipulate Sami to even be in the same house with him. that should tell you something right there.

    NyCsBaDdEsT replied

    ITA with you Panda. EJ and Sami are better people when they are NOT together. IMO, Ejami is a toxic relationship built on nothing but lies and deception. Sami is a different person now, and imo Rafe is the one that brings out the best in her. Even when Sami was this “bad girl” she still disaprroved of EJ’s “Dimera” ways…which is something that I don’t see changing anytime soon. As for EJ, he needs someone that accepts him for who he is. It’s time that he start chasing someone who will love him (the real EJ)… and most of all…not judge him.

    I have faithfully watched DOOL for over 30 years. On and off .But religiously for the last 4 years , because of Ej and his Samanther.Sorry I admit it , cannot get enough of those 2.Ken Corday gave us Ejami Fans some very dissapointing news the other day , if you cannot believe the head honcho who can you believe he ? By the way these are the last words of the Ken Corday interview i did not see above :Yes, that is what I was referring to. I truly believe the viewers want Sami and Rafe together. You know, Sami can be her own worst enemy and this time she’s not doing it in a vindictive way. She’s just being pulled in by this not so nice guy [EJ]. That will come to a conclusion sometime right after Labor Day. I think viewers will be very happy to see Sami being the strong Sami, who is taking things into her own hands. I wish I could tell you the plot points, but I can’t! I can say you can expect a lot of surprises and viewers will get what they want, which is Sami and Rafe back together again.

    Well Ken’s been wrong a lot. You don’t need to trust him, he also said Carly wouldn’t be in Bo’s orbit. And what happened? He also said Lumi would be together, and where is Lucas now?

    Allison replied

    whoa! whoa! everyone has to remember one thing..ej and sami bring their characters to life when theyre TOGETHER! you can feel the heat and the passion the pent up longing between them cause they lost eachother and played it safe ej with nicole and sami with rafe but now that the thought it there and they seem to have a fighting chance REGARDLESS of what transpired to get them to this point.the love and sexual tension they have is real,and the love they feel is the kind that can bring you to your knees explosive and just make your heart and soul bleed which is why they played it SAFE! and corday should go to you tube as should the rest of the ejami haters and SEE FOR YOURSELVES that EJAMI has more videos made and hits than SAFE by a long margin!!that what the majority of the viewers want.GO EJAMI love seeing them on their way back to eachother and the road it takes to get them there “FROM HERE TO ETERNITY” EJAMI ALL THE WAY!!! p.s james scott is the sexiest man on daytime soap

    I agree with your post. I love EJ just the way he is. Yes he is a flawed individual, the heir apparent groomed to take over Stephano’s empire . I love how he has shown remorse, fights with his inner demons who sometimes win, and sometimes don’t, and that he adores his children and the woman who is firmly sealed in his heart , the poster child of the dysfunctional his beloved Samanther .

    EJ Dimera to me is the most compelling character on the show.Waiting patiently and fervently for EJAMI TO BEGIN > ; D

    cinnamon replied

    I think Ej drags Sami’s charactor down. She had to be dumbed down to beleave all Ej’s lies and manipulations once again. Surprise Surprise. Dumbed a charactor down so they can make us sickness on our screen that I won’t even watch.
    Ej is nothing but a lying manipuating crook.He is a Dimera through and through and nothing is going to change that.

    all i have to say is if kc puts sami with rafe i’ll quit watching days !!anyone with eyes can see that sami is like a lit up christmas tree whenver ej is around her in her life and th fact that they have kids together is the icing on the cake for these two and OMG..THE PASSIoN!! could melt the screen i have watched days since ej began and ive only ever seen him be himself with sami n vice versa these two characters are totally insync with eachother its so MIRRORED!!whats so hard about that and the fact that its taking so long and dragging it out i only hope its worth it to whichever fan base wins because im totally getting upset abput the possability they just might stick sami with rafe!! ej and sami have done dispicable things to EACHOTHER nad yet they still manage to have somehting between them sami only wanted rafe cuz she couldnt have ej he was with nicole only to spite her anyway and samui and ej have tried so hard to get eachother out of thier systems but cant and now its at the surface and theirs only up from here come on mr corday wake up n smell ejami pls

    Rafe is one of the most boring characters I’ve ever seen on Days and I’ve been watching for 40 years. The comment that the fans want Safe is just crazy. On what planet do people want to watch that snoozefest?

    on the planet were we know the difference between romance and rapemance-that’s where!

    Whomever sais 12/29 was romantic? It’s not the fans of EJ and Samantha.

    But if that’s all you’ve bothered to see with those two, no wonder you’ve missed some of the most wonderful and dazzling chemistry seen on daytime.

    cinnamon replied

    Only Charactor that is boring is Ej dimera. Its like he has to be around Sami and tell her who she can have around her. Lies and Manipulations. All catch up. Can’t wait for when the truth comes out. I hope that Ej either goes to jail or Sami shoots him. What he deserves.

    Yes!!! SAFE all the way!!! Love them together…They have passion and romance that hasn’t been seen on Days since the early 80′s….I love their interaction with each other and they don’t have all this “junk” between them….If Sami can’t be with Rafe then bring back Lumi…ANYTHING but Ejami!!! They bore me to tears with all their lies..I don’t think they have ever spoken a true word to each other…YUCK!! Give me SAFE!!!!! Can’t wait for their steamy reunion!! Woot!!Woot!!!

  4. liasonbff says:

    THIS viewer, who did NOT start watching Days until AFTER Safe were already a couple, WANTS Sami with EJ. How can EJ not still have a chance if during the peak of Safe, a new viewer such as myself preferred the forbidden EJami? So yep, EJ will always have a fighting chance IMO. EJ TRULY loves Sami, and I think Sami loves EJ but is afraid to because he’s not the “good” guy in white that we’re all supposed to desperately want or whatever. Yeah, Rafe’s the good guy, the one her family loves, the hero, the knight in white whatever, but he’s not right for Sami.

    Same here! When I stareted watching Sami was with rafe – but i felt no chemistry between the two. I just feel such a pull between Sami and EJ – and yes I do know the history – but it’s in the past! EJ loves Sami so much! I love the angsty romance of her loving him, but not wanting to love him…i love the fact that she is a brady and he is a dimera!

    Crystal replied

    I’m another one who didn’t start watching until around the time Rafe came on. At first I was pulling for those two, but after awhile I couldn’t help but notice that Sami and EJ seemed much more interesting to watch together. I am now totally pulling for EJ and Sami, and have loved this summer. It’s the first time I have gotten to see romance between them and I am enjoying it while I can!

    Well Michael right now it is not Safe! It is most definitely Ejami! Did you not see the Smoking Hot Kiss Sami gave Ej. Sami was not thinking of Rafe when she practically attacked Ej! That’s what I’m talking about! “THIS FAN WANTS EJAMI”

    SAFE all the way.
    If Ej hadn’t lied and manipulated Sami once again. She wouldn’t even be living at the Dimera mansion.
    I couldn’t even watch the kiss it made me want to puke. That is why I fast forward throught it.
    Ej only loves his self. As long as his lies don’t get out is all he cares about.
    SAFE all the way.
    I had been watching the show way before SAFE came on and will continue to watch if if there is no Ejami. Won’t watch it is there is. Just like I did before.
    Never liked the pairing never Will!!!

    Sorry but EJ and Sami have a history together. If you look back at videos from when EJ came to town, Sami did chase after him even thought she was with Austin, by the way the Austin SHE raped!! She gave him drugs and RAPED him. But also they have talked and forgiven each other, again look back at the night Sidney was conceived, Sami admitted to EJ that she has done wrong too. As for the whole kidnapping, what Sami did is just as bad!! She never told EJ that he had another child with her until AFTER it was dead, that is deplorable and unthinkable. BUT, the chemistry that those to have is undeniable IMHO, Rafe is boring and how long did it take for Sami to jump into bed with Rafe what one month, two after meeting him, he is a rebound. Check out June 30, 2010 that is romance between EJ and Sami, that is chemistry, that is want and need even though they have hurt each other they still want each other and besides people this is a soap opera not real life!!!

    This fan wants Ejami too. I really don’t understand how Ken came up with Safe being fan fav…it just doesn’t add up. The passion in EJami’s single kiss blew the whole Safe relationship out of the water.

    Ok correct me If I’m wrong, but didn’t Super Rafe WALK OUT on Sami more then once. Give me a break their relationship is not the only relationship Sami has ever had that their was no manipalation. Do you even know Sami she lies to everyone and manipalates every man she has every been with including Rafe the super agent. She manipalated him when she was in WP. Rafe didn’t get fired from the FBI for nothing. Rafe is no different then anyone else. Sami is no SAINT. Ej loves her for the good the bad and everything in between. Rafe can’t say the samething he walks whenever he feels like it. That is not love. Love is Understanding and Love Forgives! Sami WILL Forgive Ej because deep down she loves Ej and always will! “THIS FAN WANTS EJAMI FOREVER!”

    Leah replied

    That is a joke my dear, despite our preferences lines and scenes don’t lie. Rafe doesn’t accept Sami for who she is. He has walked out on her and the kids several times the last time BECAUSE SHE LIED TO HIM. Oh boo hoo, poor Rafe – not! I say keep walking Rafe, keep walking right out of the picture.
    Rafe is a self righteous, selfish, manipulative, prideful, arrogant git. Rafe doesn’t like or tolerate being questioned by Sami and hasn’t even opened up to her about his past. I’ve had enough of Sami playing the grovelling, wimpy, weak, woman with him and looking for his seal of approval on everything. Rafe has also shown us his true colours and character when he went ahead and ILLEGALLY adopted Grace….. some honest and true FBI agent. Another thing I don’t like about Rafe is he wants EJ kids to himself and wants to cut them out of EJ’s life. Rafe continually downputs EJ and what happens when the kids overhear this one day? No Rafe is not good stepfather material. I say if he wants kids he needs to find someone and create his own….. Will, Ally, Johnnie & Sydney all have fathers. EJ has only ever encouraged Lucas’s involvement in his childrens lives and any issues EJ and Lucas had were always put aside for the sake of the children. Now that’s a father and a grown up….. putting the children’s needs ahead of your own. Rafe I suppose we can’t expect you to understand that as your simply not a dad. Go Ejami and Ejamily!

    Linda replied

    I didn’t see a smokin’ hot kiss, there was no passion, it was like watching two year old babies kissing, smashing there lips together, don’t get me wrong, babies kissing are adorable, but not two grown ups! If that’s all he’s got no wonder they are not a couple!!!! It’s Rafe and Sami for me now they have passion, romance, the way they gaze into each other eyes and say they love each other, and when he carries he into the bedroom now that’s smokin’ HOT!!!!! SAFE is the couple of 2010……

    We’ll see what happens. Corday is obviously grossly misinformed or ignorant to believe that the majority would prefer Safe to EJami. Sami is going to be falling for EJ in the next few months and when she’s back with Rafe, she’ll be pining over EJ.

    It’s Ejami or bust for me. I think Corday has it all wrong, the fans want EJAMI! I personally don’t know anyone who isn’t an EJami fan. EJami screams passion, hot chemistry and excitement anything else is just plain boring and not worth my time or even mention.

    Why? BECAUSE HE IS BORING!!!!

    I want excitement, so I say EJAMI ALL THE WAY!!!

    That is very true..Not all SAFE fans post on boards…..There are a lot of SAFE fans….Rafe hasn’t had a story written for him without Sami or EJ, yet….HE is Sami’s true love and soulmate….Love SAFE!!!

    No, I don’t. Not all Ejami’s post on the boards, either.

    I’m just thankful that tptb agree with what is entertaining and that’s SAFE. I think Ej will be just fine cuddling up to Ari or Nicole, or whoever they pair him up with.

    EJami is what got me hooked on Days, and they certainly weren’t even friendly when I first saw them in a scene together. James and Ali bring so much chemistry to each scene. There’s no contest. This is a soap – we want drama, layered flawed characters, and chemistry, and that’s what you get with EJami! Safe is just that – safe, i.e. boring, bland, predictable.

    Why would you be interested in a relationship where Sami has to be completely lobotomized AND victimized in order to be part of the couple? I’m a Sami fan, so I want her with the man that knows how to treat a woman decently and not like a piece of property!

    If that is true, then you don’t really want her with Rafe!

    Afterall, he does seem to want to know EVERY move she makes!

    Constant interrogation shouldn’t be a part of a relationship!

    REALLY? replied

    Rafe is your idea of a good man? A man who couldn’t understand why a mother would lie to him if it was the only way to save her child’s life? A man who left her for this reason? Who leaves the moment Sami is not a perfect angel? That’s ridiculous!

  16. HAS says:

    Thank you for saving it, GT! EJAMI was sinking the show. They’re lame at this point, and the show had to dumb Sami down too much for this to work. I hope you’re reshuffling in the right directions, and getting Sami back to being smart. She can continue to be impulsive and a little nuts, lol, but please no more stupid to trust anything EJ says or does. That just didn’t make any sense.

    I agree that they have been making Sami uncharacteristically dumb to not suspect EJ was behind the kidnapping, but that is what they do to her when they have her kiss EJ and pretend to not know why. Stop making Sami stupid! Have her find out the truth, finally realize she will never stop loving EJ and forgive him!

  17. Key DemoFan says:

    The writing for Ejami is too repulsive to recover from. While the actors have some chemistry, this viewer can’t get over the sick, sadistic events that have transpired between them on screen to ever accept them as a romantic pair. They turn my stomach. I just can’t watch.

    Safe is no winner either. The actor chemistry falls flat (at least Ejami is sometimes enjoyable as enemies) and the actor who plays Rafe has no charisma in this role. Despite the writers’ wishful thinking for him to be the new John Black., the Rafe character is a dud. Ken Corday is seriously out of touch with the fans.

    Bring back Lucas or Brandon for Sami, because neither Safe nor Ejami works. Sami’s character has been swirling the drain ever since getting involved with EJ and Rafe.

    I have to believe that Ken Corday has LOST his mind! Or else he just wants Days off the air?
    Safe is a..a…a mockery of soap romance. It’s a sham and a SHAME to dare say that Sami Brady was or would ever be a stronger person for being with the uncouth, controlling coward that is Rafe Hernandez!
    Whereas EJ and Sami —They set one another ablaze! The Ejami relationship is a genius strike of writing (though you’d never know it for long and long now) where the Dimera/Brady clans are distilled into the esence of uncontainable love, rampaging in its passion and frightful in the breath-stealing moments of furor.
    Who are these “viewers” who supposedly root for Safe? I’ve yet to come across one in real life, though I have witnessed several non-practicing soap viewers (hey, you come to see me between 1 and 2 and sorry, you’ra have to deal) admit that EJ and Sami seem to have something that captures attention…and Safe gets laughed at.
    You tell me…mayhaps after 26 years (‘most my whole life!) I don’t know anything about soaps afterall! Maybe Passions was really good, so great, in fact, that Days should be sacrificed for its junior reanactment? Just let me know and I’ll call it quits with the whole genre. Ejami or I really just don’t care anymore.

    Rafe is the driest, most boring character on DAYS. The only way the writers could put Rafe with Sami is to take what made Sami special out of her and turn her into someone she isn’t, Carrie. Rafe couldn’t handle Sami not telling him about the Sydnappers, how could he handle Sami in 100% Samantha Gene Brady in all her glory? EJ doesn’t want her to change he loves her because of her darkness, not in spite of it. Rafe doesn’t have a clue who the REAL Sami Brady is. She hasn’t “matured” she’s changed into sister and if Corday wants Austin and Carrie part deux, then just bring back Austin and Carrie.

    EJ understands Sami like no one else does. He knows her bad side, he’s seen it first hand. Sami knows who Ej is, understands him and why he does what he does. She knows he struggles with his DiMera side and doesn’t always win in his struggle against it. It’s why they’re such a compelling couple. They’re not a remake of every other couple on soaps. They’re not average. They’re not mundane. They’re fascinating because you never know what they could be up to.

    Rafe and Sami? I think the writers are trying to make them the next Marlena and Roman, Carrie and Austin, Belle and Shawn. Really? Samantha Gene Brady? She is no “next” anyone and together with EJ, they’re not “new” remake of a couple who have already been in Salem.

    They break the mold of all the couples we’ve already seen on daytime. And daytime needs something new and original to shake it up.

    EJAMI will always have a chance; Lucas knew that no matter what Sami couldn’t get EJ out of her heart and even if there is a SAFE reunion come labour day, Rafe too will soon enough learn that EJ holds a big chunk of Sami’s heart…EJAMI will prevail! GO EJAMI GO!!!!!!

    Rafe will not be able to live with the “real” Sami. He has walked away how many times from her. EJ loves her for who she is and what she does unconditionally. Why not give this couple a real chance together?

    Ken Corday made me one happy fan with this interview. It will be wonderful to turn on the show and not have to FF or just turn off the Ejami scenes. I hate them together. Rafe is a great guy, I can support him with Sami. Bring back Lucas and Rafe/Lucas/Sami can battle it out! NOW THAT’S A SHOW!!!

    It was the greatest gift that he could have given us fans. Knowing I won’t have to skip anymore episodes because I don’t want to be nauseated and bored watching Ejami scenes. I’m so happy! The viewers want Safe and I’m relieved, although I’d rather have Lucas.

    I want Ejami too Linda!! They are the only reason why I watch Days. Safe is soooo boring, *yawn*. Ejami share passion, excitement, humour, and love, even though Sami hasn’t admitted that to herself yet. But she will one day. She will realize that EJ is the only man for her. He loves her for who she is, faults and all. For me, it’s Ejami or bust!!!!! EJAMI FOREVER!!!!!!!

    i think it is ridiculous to put Safe together..Ejami belong together and are much

    i think what Ken corday said was a slap in the face for all Ejami fans .
    Ejami fans have been waiting 4 years for a real shot but they never actually got it.

    I think that what doesn’t kill Ejami will only make them stronger. We all knew that once the Sydnapping secret broke that there was a chance that Sami would run back to that other guy, however, I honestly believe that by the time that happens Sami will be deeply, madly in love with EJ. So if the other guy takes her back it will be a Sami that can’t get EJ off the brain or out of her heart!!

    Ejami will be together, it’s just going to take some crap for episodes until we finally get to see it!!

    Sami belongs with the father of her children and soulmate Lucas. But since he is not an option right now I’ll take Rafe. That isn’t as disgusting and vile a pairing as her and EJ. They’re never going to work together, never.

    I found Lumi pretty disgusting.A man who sent her to her death,for his own selfish reasons.Lumi got past it tho,didnt they?Ejami can get past theirs!Whats disgusting to me,is seeing Sami crawl,and grovel for Luis’s attention.We ALL have opinions,,DONT WE??’

    This viewer,my daughter and my hubby are ALL EJAMIS~

  31. Gail says:

    I think the handwriting has been on the wall for SAFE for quite some time now. Both Corday and Sweeney have acknowledged that Sami’s character has changed to a good girl and they both like and want that. Sami needs and deserves to be paired with a good guy, Rafe, who will love her and her kids without reservation and manipulations and lies.

    From the first time Rafe and Sami were together in WP, it was obvious to me that they were meant to be together. The writers tried, it, the fans loved it and it has been a super love story ever since.
    SAFE ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!!

    Really? Huh…because when I saw Ali in person over the past weekend she said she was VERY excited to see Sami go back to her “bad girl” persona. I have yet to hear of an actress that enjoys playing the “good girl”. The only…and I mean ONLY.., character that has loved Sami no matter what her flaws is EJ. Sami is down right boring on screen right now. Bring on the real Sami and let the EJAMI sparks fly! :)

    I just saw an interview with Alison saying she was excited that Sami was a heroine. The chemistry with Ali and Galen is apparent off screen and on.

    Sherry replied

    Don’t you guys know the actors say things to encourage whatever group they are with….If she’s with Ejami’s she says she likes to be the bad girl..If she’s with SAFE’s she says she likes to be the good girl…It’s what they say when they are NOT around fans that counts and Alison has said that she likes playing the good girl after 15 yrs of playing the villian and she likes the love story of SAFE….That was in the Q&A video on youtube with questions from both sides..It must be very difficult for her to satisfy both fanbases and I think she does a great job!!! I guess we will just have to wait and see who Sami chooses but in my book she is much better off with Rafe!!!!

    Ej and Sami as toxic, disgusting, vile and frankly they are boring with the same story that played out two years ago repeating itself virtually every step of the way. I think it would help DOOL immensily if they FINALLY made the decision to end Ejami once and for all. She and the man that has victimized her and her family for 4 years now should really have no connection whatsoever. Make Sydney Nicole and Ej’s baby, and bring back Bryan Dattilo to reprise his role as Lucas for the revelation that Stefano and Kate held the truth from both Sami and Lucas that Johnny is really his son. End the nightmare that is Ejami, it has been sucking the life out of this show slowly.

    I’m not wrong…I have an opinion that differs from yours…and frankly the writing wasn’t THIS bad in 2007 and the show was still sucking then….IMHO, EJami HAS and continues to suck the life out of this show….and I stick by that statement. Sami wasn’t rewarded with a child being produced out of rape, and neither should Ej. The various decisions this show has made over the years has tanked it.

    Let me give you people a history lesson Sami was not raped it was consentual , if she was really raped by EJ she would be very afraid of him, but she wasn’t in fact she sought out his help on a number of ocassions, plus I think Sami would know what rape is since she was raped before and she was very afraid of him and she kept her distance from him. Now getting back to Sami and EJ the middle part of that scene is missing which would have been the most telling part, I still do not know how people can come to the conclusion of it being rape without the middle part of that scene, there is not much evidence to support rape.
    P.S. I support EJ and Sami they are the couple with the most chemistry.

  33. Grace says:

    I’m not a fan of either pair, since she really belongs with her true love Lucas. But since Lucas is not an option at the moment, I have to go with Rafe. Rafe hasn’t held her at gunpoint and raped her. Rafe hasn’t kidnapped her child and told her that her child is dead. Rafe hasn’t tried to kill her (now) ex-husband. Rafe hasn’t shot her stepfather in the head and stolen his kidney. Rafe hasn’t tried to rip her unborn twins from her womb in order to harvest their organs. Rafe hasn’t gassed her aunt and uncle. In fact, Rafe’s only crime is being not quite as interesting as Lucas, but we can deal with that later.
    Rafe isn’t a dangeous sociopath, so he wins this battle.

    Love really love these freaking double standards..sarcasm sarcasm..Lucas tried to kill Sami he did some really other evil deeds against her for pete’s sake..so maybe some people who can’t separate soap plots fantasy from real life don’t want Sami with her attempted murderer also…but of course we can accept Sami with Rafe because he is a good guy even if they are boring together, they don’t have chemistry and people will FF their scenes..nice really nice to each his own after all ! lol

    I think EJ will prevail. EJ and Sami is clearly the more interesting and more complex storyline. The love story is one of star-crossed lovers who have overcome much to end up together. What has the other one to offer? A couple that was manufactured to facilitate a real life pregnancy? Pffftt!

    EJ will have his heart’s desire-Samantha.

    If Days has any smarts, they’ll never again even hint at a pairing of Sami with her rapist. It brings the ratings down every time they try it, and it seems they’ve finally realized it. Most viewers find rapemance disgusting. We don’t want to see crimes against women rewarded.

    Personally, I don’t really care for Rafe and Sami together, either. He’s a bore, and she’s a shadow of her old self. I want the old, strong Sami back, who didn’t sit around waiting for others to fix her problems for her. I really truly hope Corday is telling the truth about her once more taking things into her own hands. I’d like to see her single for a while, getting a career, spending time with her kids. If there has to be a man in her life, the only one that worked for me was Lucas.

    The interview made no sense with what I’m seeing on screen. While EJ hasn’t told Sami the truth – he isn’t manipulating her. And he isn’t pushing her. EJ didn’t just take Sydney for the heck of it – people put things in motion – ie Nicole, Sami, Stefano and Rafe (who tried to adopt EJ’s daughter) that sent EJ over the edge. Luckily he brought himself back and did the right thing all on his own. I like Galen, and I’m ok with Rafe – but James Scott and EJ are just off the charts good and the story with Sami is just pure soap gold. If Ken said it – I don’t think he believes it. It was a tactic to keep the Safe fans (there are some but not as many as Ejami) watching. If Sami goes back to Rafe it will be temporary at best. Her heart is with EJ and always has been. They are stretching that story out as long as they can. Ejami is where the buzz is at.

    SAFE fans are not watching right now because of the sickening Ejami retread that failed 4 yrs ago and will fail again….I for one do not want to see Sami with her tormenter..And Ej did not just come to his senses….He wanted to be Sami’s manufactured “hero” because of what Anna said to him that Rafe will always be Sami’s hero….Ej doesn’t have the capapcity to love anyone but himself…He has called his own son a liar when Johnny was telling the truth to Theo….He called Johnny an “it” to Nicole when he was crying for Sami…Noone buys that EJ is turning good…I haven’t seen that posted anywhere..He is still the drug lord of Salem and into all kinds of dirty dealings..He is unredeemable in my book. SAFE love lasts forever because it isn’t manufactured and based on lies and manipulation!!!

  44. Disappointed says:

    What most disappointed me about this interview is that KC felt the need to reveal the plot. What a dumb crazy move. The other thing about this inteveiw that has me upset is that he assumed that all viewers want Rafe and Sami together. Whether or not if I am a EJ/Sami fan or a Rafe/Sami fan, he should not have spoken for all viewers. I don’t need anyone telling me what I want to see on my televison, so he should have not presumed anything. I can see how Rafe may appeal as a better choice for Sami. However, I can see how EJ/Sami appeal to some. The thing is, they have changed the Sami character so much, she has been watered down beyond belief, so yes watered down Sami does fit with Rafe. Sami and Rafe can be the nice boring “safe” couple. But, yes there is a but, some people perfer the hellraiser Sami and that Sami fits perfectly with EJ. I think that some of the old Sami needs to resurface and if old Sami resurface, Rafe could not handle it. What I have seen is EJ is willing to have all of Sami, he doesn’t care if she is an angel or a demon, he just loves her unconditionally, but could Rafe do that. I don’t think so. In closing, I think I perfer EJ and Sami as a couple.

    Sami not only hid the fact that she was pregnant from EJ, but also to Rafe who was supposed to be protecting her. Rafe lied to everyone just as much as Sami did about Grace and where she came from. He lied/hid the truth about his other “true love”. He tried to adopt a baby that he knew wasn’t his. He dumped her the minute he found out she lied about the ransome notes instead of understanding the determination of a mother who’s lost her daughter. Yeah…he is a real saint isn’t he.

  46. Kazz says:

    Any possibility of a true pairing of Sami with EJ died in Dec. 2006. Days just wasn’t smart enough to bury that carcas right away and it has been a useless burden to the show ever since. Any attempt to pair the two always sinks the ratings and it ruins every character and storyline involved. I could care less about Safe, Sami should just be alone if Days isn’t going to bring Lucas back, but no matter what else happens Days needs to make a permanent, decisive, irreversible end to EJ/Sami and the faster the better.

    p.s : and i liked Lumi but this pairing is over, maybe one day Lucas will come back but even if it is the case not sure Sami will be with him, the guy was nothing outside of her and it really destroyed his character at the end of the day. So for your sake get over it, at least for now..maybe one day he will come back but for now Stop your sick hatred, resentment, obsession..it is really really pathetic.

    I don’t think anything is ‘now and forever’ on soaps. As the story has been written to this point, it’s clear that there will be yet another fracture in the EJami relationship when the truth about EJ’s involvement in the Sydnapping is revealed. And I suspect that’s when Safe will reunite. However, I believe that’s simply just the next phase of the story. EJami will always be in one another’s orbit…they share children and a connection that has withstood far greater obstacles. But the HUGE thing in their favor is the white hot chemistry that exists between Alison Sweeney and James Scott. It’s like lightening in a bottle – and I believe the powers that be at DAYS are well aware of it. EJami won’t be over once the truth comes out. If their story survived 12/29 and they went on to have another child together, this will simply be a blip in the radar. The legions of EJami fans are simply a testament to the power and potential this pairing has shared from day one.
    EJami = Inevitable.

    EJ absolutely has a chance at Sami. I prefer EJami and it is because they have more history and two kids together so they seem to me the obvious choice, and the fact that James and Ali have more chemistry and sex appeal than any other pairing on the show right now. Realistically, the story can go either way, but this EJami fan will never give up on wanting a real love story for these two fabulously-flawed people.

    EJ and Sami have by far the more compelling love story, history and chemistry. They are the best couple on the show. Fans haven’t stuck around through endless trials and tribulations over 4 years for nothing. There is a reason EJ and Sami continue to be so popular.

    Redemption, love and forgiveness are recurring themes in all EJami scenes and I believe that is not a coincidence. I ‘think’ viewers want a satisfying ending to this storyline which really began back in MAY 2008 and that ending is Sami and EJ reuniting and having the family and unconditional love they both have always wanted. Hopefully the show will deliver.

    EJ definitely still has a chance with Sami!! EJAMI all the way! They have such chemistry and such a great story BECAUSE of, not in spite of, their rocky relationship.

He’s not out to manipulate or destroy her or her family but just wants to love the her and her kids. That goes A LONG way with me as a viewer. That’s what we SAFE DIVAS/DIVOS want to see and FINALLY we’re going to get it!!! I applaud KC for this!

    I dont buy into everything KC says. He’s “previews” have a tendency to play out differently than his words describe. I will wait and see.

    Watching the Ejami kiss tells me everything: They were starving for one another. Sami’s eyes spoke of two years of hurt, wantonness, and indulgence. Indulging herself in those feelings she desperately kept locked away for so long and denied denied denied. She never wanted anyone so badly as she did in that moment. Once she tasted Ej on her lips her passion roared inside like a lion feasting on their prey. Listen to how fast her breath becomes short and heavy. She is in love with this man, truly, madly, deeply, and he takes her breath away. This scares her more than any man has ever done. B/c this is the deep, primal, all consuming, greatest love of her life…and she’s afraid.

    Oh I agree…… and in the words of John Black “I don’t think those two kids (EJ & Sami) actually realise how much they love each other.” Ejami simply cannot live without each other. And I say dear Sami, you”ve been unsuccessful in relationships because you choose the wrong one. Pick Rafe and you’ll be doomed again. Rolf was right EJ is the one that makes your heart go pitter, patter. EJ is the one who accepts you for who you are without conditions. We know you want him….. JUST GO FOR IT GIRL and don’t be afraid. Give into it and we believe you won’t be disappointed. Check it out youtube…. Ejami – Your Making me High, Turn you On (2) – Ejami or Sami & EJ – Juicy. LOL

Can’t wait to see my reason for watching Days at the moment, Sami and Rafe, reunite. Galen and Ali are two beautiful people with a chemistry that is simply off the charts! Thank you for giving such a wonderful couple to your fans.

    SAFE is the one couple that DAYS has needed for a long time now. They have amazing chemistry on screen and a wonderful romance that is fresh and new.
    The General Audience will NEVER forget EJ’s rape of Sami, no matter how hard they try to sweep it under the rug. That’s why ejami can never be a viable couple. As soon as Sami realizes that she has been once again duped and manipulated by ej, it will be all over. Same song, different year, This is a worn out storyline.
    IT’S SAFE FOR ME!!!!

    From the time that the character of Rafe was brought to DAYS it was obvious that he and Sami were to be together. She needed a hero and Rafe has been just that for her– her hero time and time again. He has stuck by her and her kids and would do anything for them. This has been a SAFE story since October of 2008.

    Put all the pieces together— not just this interview– and you have it—- SAFE– the next supercouple of DAYS!!!

    Sami Brady doesn’t need a hero : to even think that is total BS and it just show that some people don’t know her character at all !
    They can mature Sami and if she is more mature she certainly doesn’t need a hero, simple as that.

    I stopped watching because DOOL kept trying to make a romance out a rapist and victim. If it is truly over, I may just become a viewer again. Of course, I still want that insipid white wash erased and for the show to acknowledge that 12/29/06 was in fact rape.

    Can we talk about what Lucas did to Sami also !?
    And no technically it was not a rape. The show portrayed it as a rape at this time to make Sami a weepy heroine and pimp Lumi as a rooting couple but the act was not, and i know what i am talking about.

    In fact, if you`re a Lucas fan, you can watch the episode dated May 26 or 28, 2008. A couple of days after Lucas catches Sami in bed in EJ, Lucas tells Sami that it`s the second time she`s been with EJ. He goes on to tell her that she is resourceful and that she could have found another way to save him and that she wanted to be with EJ because she is attracted to him. Sami was hurt but didn`t deny it. It was not rape.

    I think it’s EJami or bust. Fully expect Sami to run back to Rafe with her wounded feelings once it comes out that EJ was behind the kidnapping. But I don’t think Sami is going back to Rafe alone — she will be taking EJ with her, in her heart, soul, and brain. Unless Rafe really is as dumb as he look, it shouldn’t take long for him to “catch on.”

I’m 100% lumi (and a 21 year old female, Days wants me watching) and right now, I don’t care if Lumi is together or not, I’m just so offended that EJ has done so many hurtful things to Sami and her whole family in like what, four years? Including raping her, yet this “romantic pairing” is still being considered.

    I wouldn’t mind a Safe/Lumi triangle but the ejami/Lumi / ejami/Safe triangles were just insulting.

It is a compelling love story with built in angst with their two families. No other couple has that. They are romantic and fun and what keeps me watching Days!

NOT AT ALL!!! So, the shoe works BOTH ways!!! (And EJ DID NOT rape Sami, he gave her a choice!! Which is what SHE DID NOT do for Austin.

    If I had to choose between a violent rapist and a good cop, I will choose the good cop for Sami Brady. But if I had to choose her ultimate true love and father of her children then that would be none other than Mr. Lucas Roberts Horton played by the extremely talented Bryan Dattilo who was recently fired for NO GOOD REASON! Sami Brady belongs with Lucas, that is a no brainer. But until the writers wake up and bring him back, then I will settle for Rafe, the boring good cop. He is afterall much better than the violent rapist any day of the week. But remember, Lucas tops them ALL!

    If ya don’t want a good cop with a rapist then Sami isn’t for Rafe either. Or do you (who keep using that old excuse) CONVENIENTLY forget Sami drugged and raped Austin herself. So both Sami and EJ are guilty of rape. Ejami is simply two of a kind and that why they should be together.
    PS: Austin forgave Sami just as Sami chose to forgive EJ. So find a new agrument.

    I am no Safe fan, but they are at least tolerable. Killing Ejami once and forever will pretty much guarantee my return as a viewer to the show, since they are the main reason I left in the first place. I cannot and will not tolerate EJ and Sami as a couple together, or even flirting with the possibility. It is just too disgusting, not to mention torture on my eyes and ears. Sami with Rafe is much more palatable, albeit boring, and I could happily put up with them until GT removes his noggin from his bottom, and hires back Bryan Datillo as Lucas Horton = Sami’s best pairing ever. If Mr. Corday truly puts the kabosh on Ejami for good, I might just send him a thank you note and a nice box of chocolates :)

No white wash will ever change what I watched play out on my screen. There is nothing enjoyable or even tolerable about EJami, so I will easily go with Safe on this one.

    I would like to let him know that this fan loves EJ and his love for Sami. Those whom I do know who also watch DAYS believe Elvis is the stud and Rafe is the dud and are still scratching their heads over why Sami doesn’t see this, too. Doesn’t realize how deadly dull her life (and our viewing) would be with Rafe.

    I have a suggestion to Mr. Corday. If he wants Rafe to continue in Salem, then bring Carrie back. She’s the type of woman he seems to want and Rafe is definitly right up Carrie’s alley he has everything Austin was minus the personality.

    EJ and Sami are the definition of what a modern soap couple should be.

I want EJAMI. If I wanted to spend an hour of my day watching a couple like Rafe and Sami, I would not watch a soap opera. I want drama. I want my anti-Brady with her DiMera love.

    There’s only one reason to put Sami and Rafe back together and that’s so that Sami can finally realize that EJ’s is the man that she loves (which she has known since she met him but just isn’t ready to admit yet). I’m not sure why people want Sami to be a shell of her former self. She and EJ are the same, they’re two of a kind. Why do people forget all the stuff Sami has done in the past that has made her who she is and a character that people want to watch?

    People call EJ a rapist but forget that Sami had a choice that night. Whereas, when Sami drugged Austin to sleep with him, I didn’t see Austin getting a choice in the matter. Sami forgave EJ for 12/29 back in 2008 before they made love. People need to get over that s/l once and for all.

    Sami only makes sense with EJ, we only see the real Sami when she’s with EJ. EJami will find a way to be together, I have no doubt in my mind. NEVER STOP BELIEVING IN THE POWER OF EJAMI

They have chemistry like no other and I have seen the couples come and go. All this garbage about what they have done to one another is just garbage, I see Lumi fans still shipping the Lumi romance after that dude tried to have her killed twice. When Emily got in the car with Rafe, she died, Sami knows EJ all his faults like he knows hers. She will forgive him, she had better.
    As for Corday what a jerk, tells the end of a story, and they worry about ratings, why watch if you know the ending. If he does go the Safe route, he can kiss his show goodbye, maybe that’s what the dork wants so he can go play golf with his good buddy. thanks for nothing Kenny baby.

    Sadly, SAFE wins an “unscientific” poll that is clearly spammed by people sitting at their computers hitting the Back button and voting over and over.

Please explain why you are so proud of your couple winning a poll that is spammed. I would be embarrassed.

    Well, Sherry, at least you admit to trying to cheat by using your Back button, otherwise you wouldn’t claim it “has never worked” (which, sorry for your technical difficulties, but it does indeed work). So…which other polls have you tried to do that with? Just kidding.

    Listen, I know for a fact that some EJAMIs try to spam polls. It is disingenuous for you to claim there’s not a single SAFE fan out there who doesn’t. You know some do. But that’s not the point. That poll is indeed spammable (the Back button does work; I did it just now and so did my friend sitting next to me), and so, sadly, it is worthless for Gail to wave that “SAFE is the most popular couple for 50blahblah weeks in a row” flag around proudly. As I said, EJAMI comes out on top in every single poll that can’t be spammed. No one will take seriously the poll that y’all flaunt like a badge of honor until controls are placed on it to keep people from cheating.

    Give me EJAMI! There is nothing like their chemistry. That’s why I keep watching DAYS. I watch soaps to escape to a world where the impossible can happen. SAFE is like everyday life. AN average JOE doing the right thing and no spark to life. EJ enters a room and it comes alive, EJ & Sami look at each other and the room ignites. Thats why I watch soaps for fireworks. Only EJAMI can deliver that. They have more charisma than Jadk & Jen or BOPE, and both of them had IT. Sami and Rafe no way, DULL, DULL, DULL. On top of chemistry we have great acting. James Scott can convey any emotion he is asked to do and delivers a stellar performance everyday. James and Alison are the stars of the show and will be THE COUPLE!

As a member of the General Audience, I find the thought of Ej and Sami just vile. Days has catered to a small group of people and the show has suffered. Ever since the show has been pimping the latest go round, the ratings are in the toilet. EJ and Sami can’t deliver the viewers this show needs to survive. You can spam polls, you can spam messageboards and you can artificiallly inflate the size of your site, but if you can’t bring in the ratings, and your couple can’t entice viewers outside of its base, it’s time to put a fork in it, because it’s done.

    just because we may post on message boards or forums does not eliminate us as part of the general audience. Safe is the most sleep inducing couple ever, watching their love scenes is painful, they look uncomfortable and watching the poor guy try to deliver his lines is painful, every thing sounds the same. Is he mad, glad, happy, sad devastated, romantic, ill, who knows it all comes out the same whamp whamp whamp whamp. Facing the dentist’s drill is much more appealing. Where’s the excitement, the zest, the drama, the anything. Can we send these people back where they came from, perhaps Tabitha and her cronies and the monkey would help out a heck of a lot more.

    PS: Interesting……. You don’t want Sami with a rapist? How do you feel about Rafe being with a rapist then? That’s right Sami drugged and raped Austin. Sami has openly admitted to it and like EJ was very remorseful for doing so. Austin forgave her just like she forgave EJ. Here’s a thought, maybe we should throw EJ & Sami both in jail for their crimes and write them both off the show.

    Euh Ok why do you think your opinion is a fact ?! Hello it is just your opinion !
    You don’t know anything about who is the most popular miss like every fan, to state things like this is just so childish, these pairings are popular they have their fanbase that’s for sure but to know who is the more popular..come on you don’t know that like i don’t know either. Your statement is just so ridiculous it is almost funny !

    Ah and my post was a response to some “posts” from Rebecca..the ratings please this argument is so moot by the way : the ratings are bad when Sami and Rafe are on-screen, when Sami and Ej are on-scree, when Ej and Nicole are on-screen, when Bo and Hope are on-screen ect..storytelling makes ratings not pairings..it was only the case with Luke and Laura in 70′s and it was the exception.

    rebecca replied

    Ratings don’t like. Take a minute to really look at them and you see they bear me out. The rapist and his victim consistanly bring in the lowest ratings. In fact, the only week that Days had gains, the two lowest days were days that featured them and the two proposals. Childish? Your opinion but you might really want to take a good hard look inthe mirror before posting personal attacks.

    They are the couple who has brought in the ratings in the past year and a half. Now that ejmai is back on the screen– the ratings are down again. Why?? The GA is sick of seeing a man constantly violate women in one way or another and it shows.

    Let’s get back to the DAYS that used to be where romance was king and there were great love stories and family was important.

    The couple to bring that back to DAYS is SAFE!!!!

I hope TPTB are savvy enough not to waste the goldmine they have in James & Ali’s talent/chemistry. The EJami fanbase has waited through four years and lots of obstacles…we want to see our couple be given a REAL chance at happiness once the truth of the Sydnapping is dealt with.

    I cannot fathom why Ken Corday would say that the fans want Safe . He must not be seeing the same show I’m watching or looking at message boards . He will now know how we feel as the uproar over his remarks will make him hear Ejami fans roar. EJ and Sami are the only reason I came back to Dool and the only reason I’m passionate about this show despite the often inconsistent writing. If EJ and Sami are not given a chance to finally shine after 4 years of longing for them then I will not feel the need to watch anymore. I love romance above all other stories and Dool is not good at that . Sex is not romance but the looks of passion and longing that Ej and Sami have really light my fire. No one does it better and I won’t accept substitutes when these two with little effort blow me away in all their scenes together. So it’s only Ejami for me.

    That’s right, we keep hearing how many million Egagme fans there are out there, but when they became the focus of the show, the rating nosedived! The reason is because the people that actually care enough to view the show (not just read summaries and post on message boards) want to see romance, not victimization.

    Sorry, but the ejami kiss was the lowest rated event of the week. People tuned out in the tens of thousands. It’s what all the ejami fans have been waiting for and nothing. Ejami is ratings gold for other shows. It’s killing Days.

    Rebecca the ratings for Safe were not better ! Actually the ratings were good when Sami shared their scenes with the two guys, eh oui ! And the ratings were good because of the climax in the storytelling, nothing more.

    EJAMI is it for me; I fell in love with them when I was not supposed to. The writing was all about LUMI (I was a fan by the way) then but the chemistry between AS and JS captured me. Too bad that KC is going with SAFE. They are dull as can be and I have no inclination to watch when they are on. EJAMI would have been a better story. A Brady- Dimera love story. Chemistry that is off the charts. What waste of a great potential couple. Al I can say is that KC is not that bright. Just the fact that he released this info right before the EJAMI kiss, ruining this moment for fans of this couple. It felt like a slap to the face. You think that he would at least let our fan base have a little moment in the sun.

    I want LUMI But since GT is an idiot I’ll take SAFE anyday over disgusting Ejami. EJ is and always will be the man that Sami will only sleep with or kiss because he’s lied and manipulated her to do get it. EJ sucks a$$ when he’s paired with Sami. They are the most disgusting non-couple I’ve ever been forced to watch. But no more. My TV’s off and has been for months now. And it appears so are thousands of other former Days watchers. If Days wants to give a real triangle bring back Lucas and get rid of pu$$y boy EJ. Put him with a woman who doesn’t have to want him because all her other options are no longer options. EJ and Sami are not a love story and there is absolutely no chemistry at all. Either put EJ with someone better suited for him and actually loves him or kill him off. I’ll watch just to see that. The fans, the GA dont’ want EJ and Sami (see I refuse to give them a combo name because that is for REAL couples), look at the ratings. And pay no attention to the campaings, post cards, cookies or gift baskets, KC that’s just a small group of annoying “fans” who want you to think that’s what the real fans want. I’m glad this almost vile pairing will be put to rest. And if the ratings still don’t improve after Labor Day you know what will bring fans back.. Rehire Bryan Datillo and give some former fans a reason to come back. Because frankly I’ve quit watching for 6 months and after 17 years that’s the longest break I’ve ever taken. BTW I’ll watch for the next couple weeks and then hasta la vista baby until Days smartens up.

Rafe seems like a tag along without a real reason to be in Salem aside from wanting Sami and they had a moment or two, but they don’t have that ‘it’ factor. Even my Grandmother can see that much… Ken Corday open your eyes!

    Perhaps you should have a second look at the ratings. They are probably posted at this site, but definitely at SoapOperaNetwork and Daytime Royalty. SON has the archieves with lists of ratings for many years back. If you just look at current ratings, the list the whether the current rating is up or down and how many from the week before and from a year before. The ratings had gone up steadily for a year until a few months ago when they began losing viewers. That is a fact that is easily proved and one that TPTB definitely look at. It is also a fact that the studio does its own research which tells them what the general audience likes and doesn’t like. There is no way they would rely on reading message boards only for true data.

    In 08 the ratings were so low they were talking about canceling the show, then they brought Rafe on and in 09 the ratings steady went up, and in 10 when they broke SAFE up the ratings started to go down again. They have move the show up 1 week and got rid of some Ej and Sami scenes, and the studio had to say something because the shows are taped 6-8 weeks in advance. And I am sure they don’t want to be cancelled and lose their jobs, b/c NBC is not going to fool around with a show that can’t produce good ratings, look at the Tonight Show, they didn’t even give them a year, b/c the ratings for Leno was so low! At the event last weekend in LA the actors said they know the ratings are low and what the viewers want and are saying!

    Sam replied

    Kathy what you said is totally FALSE ! The ratings were already bad when Rafe and Sami were still together as a couple and right now the ratings are bad and they still share almost more scenes than Ej and Sami ! So stop the freaking lies, please. Ah and also last summer during the building of the Safe romance and in 2008 during the safe house stuff the ratings were also bad; they improved when they was some movement in all the storylines, that is all.

    Only been a DOOL fan for a year and a half, Ejami is what caught me, and holds me. I have looked at You Tube for history, wow. No Rape, Sami said it first, “What about if we both get what we want at the same time.” Are you going to help me with Lucas Now?” EJ,” All right, I have an Idea.” Sami, “What ever it is I will do it.” She did not like the idea, but her final decision was, “OK All Right YOu Win, I want your Gaurentee before we do this.” Shall we begin ” I’LL DO IT”
    OK, Ejami have 2 kids together, lots of history. EJ has loved Sami since he first saw her. She goes into love with him, then gets afraid.
    The writers have stalled this romance, let them move it along. The Chemistry is so good. This is a romance like that of “Gone with the Wind”. It is not simple. It is a challange for the wirters to keep EJ the bad boy, and still the love of Sami’s life. He loves her for all her good and bad ways. They love the kids.
    Rafe just can not hold a candle to EJ and his love for Sami.
    Writers, let EJ show it again. He stood up to his Dad. He needs to move his courting process along.

    I have been watching Days since 1969 and until EJami the only couple I’ve ever cared about have been Bo and Hope. Each time they have been torn apart I have stopped watching. During the baby switch EJ/Nicole and Sami/Rafe storyline I stopped watching and kept up with the episodes via spoilers waiting until the “reveal” scenes told me it was OK to come back. And by the way, I hate Carly and Bo together. The only reason I haven’t stopped watching again is because EJami is finally being put together where they belong. I’m not sure what audience Ken is writing for because most people I know and comments I read are all about EJami and how much they love and want them together. I can assure you if they pull EJami apart again, and with the Bo/Hope/Carly thing happening, there will be absolutely no reason for me to watch…and I WON’T!!!

  140. Liesbeth says:

    IF it’s indeed true that KC and TPTB feel that Rafe is the better choice for Sami, then they’d better think again. I’m sure that a lot of people (SAFE fans) agree with them, but, as a NEW EJami supporter I found it rather insulting and unsettling to read in that article that “the viewers” (clearly disregarding the feelings and hopes of a large, opposing fanbase) want Sami and Rafe together and they are granting their wish.
    I usually don’t watch soaps in general, including DOOL, but one day I stumbled upon EJami on YouTube and I was instantly hooked. I have to admit that after reading up on their history (the rape and the other nasty things they did to each other) I was a bit skeptical, thinking “Hmmm, they are not the most romantic or conventional soapcouple”. BUT after I watched all of their interactions from 2006 up until the present (including the HOT, passionate kiss of 8 june) I could see that they’re clearly perfect for each other. Soulmates. And they have such an intense, passionate, chemistry that I have rarely, if ever seen between any onscreen couple. So getting rid of this unique pairing would be a REAL pity and if this happens, I will certainly not watch DOOL anymore, as they’re the only reason I tune in.
    Naturally everyone perceives things differently and there are many viewers who don’t like this couple mainly because of the rape. What they seem to forget is that Sami raped Austin and the writers had her pursue him romantically not once, but TWICE. Moreover, it isn’t the first time that a couple is paired together that has rape in its history: Luke and Laura from GH; Bill and Laura Horton from DOOL and that didn’t stop them from becoming supercouples. So why shouldn’t EJ and Sami deserve the same chance? They also share 2 children together (one of which (Sydney) is DEFINATELY a lovechild). Normally (as a young woman myself) I wouldn’t support a pair with a past like theirs either, but it’s pretty obvious that despite all the garbage between them there IS potential between EJ and Sami. Also this is a SOAP, not a reflection of real life, some of the storylines are outrageously ridiculous and most of the pairings on this show are also dysfunctional, to say the least. What the show needs to do is break this vicious cycle of them hurting each other and give them a real chance instead of having a huge lie hanging over them.
    Despite what they have done to each other, I truly believe they love each other. EJ, being Stefano’s son and due to the way he was raised, doesn’t know how to be honest NOR how to express his love in a healthy way. However, putting all his schemes, lies and manipulation aside, he is really trying to be a better man when he’s with Sami (for example, in 2008 he turned his back on his father and the Dimera legacy out of his deep, powerful love for Sami. When she was out of his life and he was involved with Nicole, he became once again evil and more under the influence of Stefano). He also loves and accepts her totally and unconditionally the way she IS (regardless if she’s a heroine or a vixen), whereas Rafe only loves her as she SHOULD be ( a “good girl”). The same applies for Sami-she DOES love EJ unconditionally, because despite of everything he’s done to her, she keeps being drawn back to him and forgives him every time. The problem is that she’s always DENIED and never fully embraced her feelings for him (which were obvious to a number of characters, including Lucas). This is partly because of her childhood and her need to please her family. She had a very unstable home life, with her parents taken from her at a young age by Stefano. She therefore associates EJ and his family as “dangerous”. And due to the fact that the Dimeras and the Bradys are each other’s mortal enemies she feels that her family will never accept EJ as a suitable match for her. In addition, she has NEVER felt so passionately about any man and that terrifies her. So, what does she do? She runs away, buries her feelings, and seeks protection with the SAFE choice, which is Rafe. She’s in love with the IDEA of Rafe. He’s supposedly a “hero”, he risked his life for her as opposed to EJ, who’s a “villain”. I see this very clearly in the way Sami behaved: when she was in the WP and came back Sami was obviously still in love with EJ-she wouldn’t have crashed his wedding if that wasn’t the case. She willing to follow her heart but the moment she found out what he did to Philip, making her believe he was “evil”, she turned away from him.
    The last year or so Sami has been written as a goody two shoes and initially it may have been refreshing for some, after being a “selfish bitch” for so long, but its gotten old. From what I’ve read on boards, a lot viewers are really bored with her character right now. It’s only a matter of time before her true self resurfaces-her lying and scheming are a part of who she is (and probably THE reason WHY she’s so popular) and I doubt that Rafe will put up with that for very long. In addition, not only does Rafe dull her character down, but she’s also very needy, whiny and pathetic when she’s with him (whereas when she’s with EJ she’s more feisty and interesting). He’s also very judgemental, condescending and at times even disrespectful towards her (for instance when he wasn’t bothered to explain what really happened to his fiancé and just walked out on her with a “it’s none of your business and how dare you question me” attitude). EJ, on the other hand, is always really sweet and gentle with her WHEN the Dimera side (e.g. the sydnapping) of him doesn’t prevail, ofcourse.
    Speaking of the whole sydnapping debacle, I think that EJ does deserve to be punished (it was excruciatingly cruel) and that Sami SHOULD kick his ass and give him HELL for what he put her through. He really went TOO far. So, it’ll be NO shock when she crawls back to Rafe when she finds out and it’ll take a while, but I believe she will EVENTUALLY (how long that will take depends on DOOL-months probably considering the pacing)forgive EJ because she loves him. I understand that some viewers are skeptical about how he could do such a thing to a woman whom he deeply, passionately loves. It’s human nature to hurt the ones you love the most and what EJ did was extremely sadistic. I thought at the time that he was SUCH a jerk but I’ve thought a lot of what led him to torture Sami like that. The Dimera/Stefano side of him completely took over, he let his anger and heartbreak completely cloud his vision and couldn’t see how much he loved the mother of his children. Even though Sami kept the existence of his child from him for the right reasons (initially to protect her from Stefano’s corrupting influence and later from EJ because she thought he was turning into Stefano II), it was wrong and unfair to not only EJ but also to her children in the long run. It was really cold of her to inform him of their daughter after she died, which deeply wounded him. In addition, once Nicole’s deception was uncovered, he lost ANOTHER daughter (or so he thought). So he goes through hell AGAIN. Then he finds out that he mourned a child that wasn’t his-so therefore all that grief was completely unnecessary. THEN psycho Nicole kidnaps his daughter, again he loses his child and AGAIN goes through hell. If that’s not enough, the LOVE OF HIS LIFE is practically canoodling with another man in front of him (so that’s obviously really painful to watch) and is being constantly reminded of her betrayal. Sami wasn’t really to blame for all that he went through, but in his eyes she was responsible because all the events wouldn’t have happened if she hadn’t lied to him in the first place. All of this becomes too much to bear, he snaps and voilá STEFANO II is born. But in the end his love for her triumphed over his hatred, he finally understood why Sami did what she did and forgave her, just like Sami will forgive him (eventually, as she has always has in the past). That is TRUE LOVE in my book ( I think he says something to her in 2006 something like “true love understands, true love forgives”).

    I love this post except I need to add something about why Sami hid her pregnancy.

    It wasn’t simply to keep her away from Stefano, it was also because she was jealous that Nicole was pregnant, too. (although the show seems to think we’ll believe they got pregnant on the same night, which they didn’t it was months apart). Sami went to tell EJ she was pregnant when the mayor was killed and used the Witness Protection as a way to get out of town until she could figure out what to do.

    I understand why EJ did what he did even if I think it was wrong. Sami, Nicole, Stefano, everyone he loved or cared about lied to him and Sami not only lied, she stabbed him in the heart with the truth of what she did AFTER Grace had passed away and she allowed a practical stranger raise ‘his’ daughter.

EJ and Samantha are in love with one another and one can sense it in every scene. Rafe and Sami are so boring together. Mr. Corday and the writers are not in tune with what the fans want. If TBTB want DOOL to remain on the air their only option is to keep EJ and Samantha together and pair Rafe with someone.

Watching Rafe with Sami was to watch the building of a real romance of the kind that hadn’t been seen since the ’80s. THANK GOD Ken Corday has the sense to do outside research into the the majority of his actual viewers are interested in and not be foolishly swayed by a loud and obnoxious minority. You know what, anyone can create multiple e-mail accounts/board names, but you can only be one viewer. Ken knows that the people who actally watch the show and support the sponsors don’t get off on the sickness that is EJami.

    Is that any less valid a reason than any other? We all have different reasons for wanting a couple together or not wanting a couple together.

    It is just nice that Michael gave us a forum to discuss any and all reasons of any and all outcomes to the SAFE and Ejami pairings.

    Thank you, Michael!

    EJAMI = Days of Our Lives! Rafe is the most boring character on Days! He has no purpose, the only way he has a story is to be angst for Ejami! I don’t even watch Days when Rafe and Sami are own. If there is no EJAMI there is NO DAYS!

    Ejami is the story. I hope that the writers aren’t so intent on recreating another Stefano/Marlena type relationship with Sami and EJ that they miss the really good story there. Besides the fact the the two actors who portray Sami and EJ have incredible romantic and sexual chemistry, the back stories lend themselves to the creation of storylines in the tradition of Romeo and Juliet, Rhett and Scarlett, and a little Taming of the Shrew. I honestly wonder if Mr. Corday even bothers to watch the show. Please, please, please bring on EJAMI.

    All I said is that I wondered if the writers had wanted to take it there (Stefano/Marlena) but that’s not what I see on my screen. As far as I’m aware Marlena never wanted to be with Stefano. Whereas Sami admitted, even to Lucas, that she had wanted EJ. Sami was attracted to him and let him romance her until she found out his real last name. They have two children together whom they both love. And she is obviously still drawn to him as witnessed by what has happened on screen this past week. Their’s is a very complex relationship but what it always comes down to for Sami is that EJ is the son of Stefano DiMera and it scares her into running away and trying to convince herself that she is sooo in love with other men. But as long as Ali Sweeney and James Scott continue to play their current characters I believe that EJ and Sami will always be in each other’s orbits and quite often romantically. As they should be.

    IT’S EJAMI ALL THE WAY!!! EJ IS & HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST & PERFECT MAN FOR HER!!! And that is what Days Fans & SAMI FANS want…her to be with her perfect & made for her man, that loves her so much, no man has loved & cared for her or treated her like a queen the way EJ has!! It’ EJAMI or nothing! It’s EJ & SAMI or Days’ cancellation and they all have to find new jobs because there is nothing and no show and no excitement without EJAMI and EJ & Sami fans. Soaps are already struggling as it is!! James & Alison together….WOW!!! That chemistry together that we haven’t seen in soaps in years!! Their SUPERCOUPLE EJAMI together…just amazing!!! Days needs them & needs their new generation SuperCouple that they’ve always built them as…EJ & SAMI!!! Without them Days is dead in the water!

    There wouldn’t even be a Rafe and none of that in Sami or her all-of-a-sudden story here if Passions was still on the air. NO THANKS!!! I’m not into cheap imitations and quick stuff for my favorite character Samantha…why should she just be thrown with Rafe all of a sudden just because Passions was cancelled twice, and he just so happens to be on this show. I don’t think DAYS should just up & change everything they built for Sami, who she is, her history, and the couple and man that was meant for her…EJ!!! Just because Passions got cancelled twice and they just gave GG/Rafe a job on this show. I don’t want Sami just cheapened, changed, and thrown with him just because he’s on this show. NO THANKS!!! And that’s not fair to Sami, Days fans, or Sami fans…for her to just be all-of-sudden thrown with Rafe/GG just because Passions isn’t on the air anymore. He wouldn’t even be here on this show, if his own show was still on. So, he doesn’t just get to all-of-a-sudden come onto this show and ruin it and Sami’s life and history and what’s been built for her and Alison’s legendary work & career, and just all-of-sudden be with Rafe. NOPE!!! NO THANKS!!! She has history & a family with EJ!!! She’s never been loved, cared for and treated like the absolute love of someone’s life and like the most beautiful woman in the world, and a queen the way EJ treats, loves, and cares for her & their children.

    You don’t just get to come to Salem, just because your show got cancelled twice and then just get thrown with the leading lady and just all-of-sudden expect that to fly. NOPE!! This ain’t Passions. This is Days! And Sami is Sheridan or whoever the chick was with him on Passions! Sami has her own story, life, and history. And it never included or had Rafe in it…because he was on Passions. And would still be had his show stayed on. No, I don’t want that and don’t want to see that for Sami. They are welcome to give Rafe some other female and build something else for him. But sorry, he doesn’t get Sami just all-of-a-sudden. When men like Lucas, Brandon, Franco, EJ…all have history and built something with her and worked for her on some level. But no one came and just loved her, rescued her, and has been there for & their children, ALL of them…the way EJ has!!

    LOVE EJ & SAMI!!! EJAMI!!! FOREVER & ALWAYS!!! AND IT AIN’T CHANGING!!! AND WE’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!!! (I’m a HUGE Sami fan have been for years, and years, and yeeearrrsss…and I’d rather see Sami die first than have her be with Rafe and be cheapened, boring, and wasted on nothing like that. I’d rather see Sami die first than have her history and legendary status and legenadary bad girl villainess love that has made her so popular and legendary and who she & Alison is today…than to have all that and what I’ve loved about her for so many years just all all-of-a-sudden just be thrown out the window like that and Alison’s career wasted and boring like that with Rafe/GG. NOPE!!! NO THANKS!!!

    I WANT SAMI & EJ!!!!! NOT GOING TO CHANGE!!! AND NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!! THEY’RE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER & They’re not being built as a supercouple…THEY ALREADY ARE THE SUPERCOUPLE & ALWAYS HAVE BEEN BUILT THAT WAY & ALWAYS HAVE BEEN THE SUPERCOUPLE OF DAYS!!! (They’re not just getting started due to twice cancelled show.) EJ & SAMI…EJAMI!!! ARE ALREADY THE SUPERCOUPLE OF DAYS!!!!! LOVE IT!!! & LOVE THEM!!!! & WANT, WANT, WANT, WANT….EJAMI….WANT THEM SOOOOO MUCH!!!! NOT CHANGING & NOT GOING ANYWHERE!!! ITS EJ FOR SAMI!!! IT’S EJAMI!!! OR NOTHING AT ALL!!!! & NO SHOW AT ALL!!!!

There’s an old saying be careful what you wish for because it will come true! Sami is dreaming of Rafe and in her dreams she tells him how much she loves him, so Rafe is who she wants, not EJ! Ej is just a roadblock for Rafe and Sami, so when they reunite their love will be stronger then ever!

    I am a long time viewer of DAYS and I have never been in favor of ejami. I don’t care if EJ is good looking– he is an abuser– mentally, physically and emotionally. He has abused and manipulated Sami since he rolled into Salem. The only way he has been able to get her to do what he wants is through manipulation and lies. This is nothing new.
    When I watch a soap that’s not what I want to see. I want to see some true happiness and love and romance. That’s not the case with ejami.
    If chemistry means yelling and screaming and grabbing women, along with manipulating them, then forget chemistry.

    Sorry but Safe is like watching paint dry. The relationship has turned Sami into a parasite who is unable to make her own decisions. Come on. This is the 21st century. It’s been a long time since women have defined themselves by the male company they keep. I want the rough and tough and hard to bluff Sami back As long as she keeps defering to Rafe, that’s not going to happen. With EJ, Sami won’t have to be someone she’s not, and don’t try to tell me she’s matured. Being wiser and making better choices doesn’t require a personality change. What happened to her resourcefulness? Give us Sami and pair her with EJ!

    The relationship has turned Sami into a parasite who is unable to make her own decisions. Don’t you mean Ej has done this to her, he has manipulated Sami from the time Sydney was kidnapped, she hasn’t made ONE decisions on her only! Being wiser and making better choices doesn’t require a personality change. I agree but Sami personality changed when she is with Ej, Sami was her self with Rafe in the safehouse, protecting Grace, even with Nicole when she found out Nicole switched babies! So all these things you want Sami to be will never happen with Ej!

    Leslie replied

    Obviously, we completely disagree on this issue. Nothing you say will change my mind nor anything I say will change yours. That’s OK. I just appreciate the fact that you are being civil with your rebuttal. My basic problem with Rafe is that the writers haven’t given him a back story or a great deal of depth. For me, the lack of dimension is unappealing. I like complex characters, and certainly EJ is that. It’s a soap, and the characters are always doing wild and crazy things. Heck, they want us to believe you can stuff a body in a water heater. Apparently, the writers don’t think we are smart enough to know that there are heating elements inside that water heater. My point is that reality is secondary to the plot. Since the plots defy logic, debate is next to impossible. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

    Lucy replied

    I disagree : even when Ej lied to her about the Sydnapping she made her own choices, granted she was not proactive in finding the “kidnapper” (major error from the writers of course) but Rafe was here to tell her “i will do it” “i will bring Sydney back” instead of working with her as a team..so she was just the helpless needy woman who waits for the guy to bring back the child..whereas when Ej asked her to move in his Dimera mansion she first refused then accepted : making her own decisions, deciding by herself without her family approval, maybe she made the wrong moves but at least it was her own choices and we can’t say that of her when she is with Rafe.

    It would be a real shame if KC and tptb ended EJami for good in favor of Safe. Sure, they don’t have a particularly “romantic” past given the rape and the other hurtful things they’ve done to each other BUT they have SO MUCH potential if only given an actual chance. They fit extremely well together. EJ is the male version of Sami and Sami is the female version of EJ. They’re both neither completely good nor entirely evil. Maybe Rafe is a better match for Sami as she is written RIGHT NOW : a goody two shoes, but how long do you think that will last? Sooner or later the real Sami (strong, feisty but also manipulative and a skilled liar) will emerge again and I strongly doubt Rafe will put up with her. He’s walked out on her already in the past on at least two occasions-once because she wanted to know what happened to his fiancé (which she had every right to be aware of) but he was never bothered to tell her about it and once when he couldn’t forgive her for lying about the ransom notes. Wow, such respect and devotion! Simply put, he only loves her “virtuous” side unlike EJ, who loves her unconditionally, regardless if she’s a heroine or a vixen. I know that some may disagree but EJ really DOES love Sami- he just has a REALLY strange way of showing it. JS has confirmed that in many of his interviews.
    The same applies to Sami, she DOES love him unconditionally but has never been willing to admit that to anyone, let alone herself (even her bff and ex-hubby Lucas knew that, he mentioned it a number of times in 2007,2008 and 2009-that is the ultimately reason why LUMI ended). She does this for a number of reasons which I don’t really feel like getting into-needless to say, she’s just as complex as EJ is.
    What’s so frustrating about the whole EJami thing is that its so controversial. I know that a lot of people are repelled by this pairing because of the “rape” and that might be a reason why tptb are unwilling to give this couple the fair shot that they so deserve. I think, however, that there are a lot shades of grey in this whole rape issue. Was it really rape? Yes and no. YES, it can be interpreted that way: Sami was forced to have sex when she didn’t really want to. Yet it wasn’t technically rape in the sense that he didn’t violently hold her down at gunpoint or hold a knife at her throat and have his way with her-Sami admitted herself during their “talk” on May 16th 2008 that he didn’t physically hurt her. . I personally see it more as sexual extortion: she was given a “choice” (an excruciating dilemma- either have sex with EJ or Iet Lucas die). However, Sami isn’t an angel either- she “raped” Austin and people seem to forget that. Talk about double standards. That is why she forgave EJ because she understood his motivations for “raping” her. Anyway, whether it was rape or not, this is a SOAP, not a reflection of real life-characters can be redeemed. I mean, how many characters have not committed hideous crimes on this show (for example, Stefano) and NEVER been punished?
    Another argument against this couple is that EJ is always trying to “get” Sami through schemes and lies. Yes, I admit he goes about it in a dishonest way but that is because he doesn’t know any better. He’s a Dimera, remember? He was raised and mentored by Stefano, who isn’t exactly the perfect role model to teach someone how to express love in a healthy way. Nevertheless, you can’t MAKE someone love you-Sami does that all on her own.
    I adore EJami despite their somewhat dysfunctional history because they’re a very compelling pair: they understand each other, they bring out the best AND worst in each other-which is normal for people IN LOVE- and despite all the terrible things they’ve done to each other, they’ve always managed to find their way back and FORGIVEN each other over and over again. They also have the hottest chemistry I’ve ever seen onscreen: whether they’re making out, bickering or having a big fight-the passion between them is so obvious. Safe, on the other hand, even though they’ve had their moments, pales enormously in comparison. Sami and Rafe DO NOT have a long term potential nor the makings of a supercouple-they have to be EPIC to qualify.
    As for the assumptions that EJami is responsible for the low ratings-is there actually any proof of that? I ‘ve read that the ratings have been declining a long time before the EJami thing was revisited. Besides, the storylines of past few months have been hardly riveting (more like sleep inducing zzzz)-infidelity, seriously? How original (especially for a soap, not to mention DOOL)….NOT!! Also, if the comments on this site are any indication of how the GA feels about EJami-there seem to be more people who actually like them.
    Oh, and I’d like to conclude this long post by saying that what KC said in his interview was totally disrespectful towards EJami fans. I haven’t been a fan for so long (since march this year) but it must have seriously hurt those that have been hanging on since 2006. Even I was temporarily depressed after hearing the news. Nevertheless, no one blabs the outcome of a story before it has even begun. It’s like buying a delicious ice cream on a hot, sunny day and then some guy with hay fever comes along and sneezes and drools all over it-the whole experience is completely ruined.

    James Scott is so talented! I sure hope he wins the Emmy. As far as the Ejami/Safe stuff well considering that Safe has been written as the rooting couple and Ejami never has tells the story, Ejami has the fans attention even after being thrown under the bus countless times to pimp either Lumi or Safe and yet they are still extremely popular. TPTB need to take that into consideration. EJAMI is a supercouple because the fans have made them a supercouple not the writers. The writers have done everything to kill this couple and yet the FANS want them! So writers WRITE Ejami a GREAT lovestory and perhaps the ratings will soar! Safe is BORING! LUMI is dead! EJAMI is still STRONG despite it all!

    I cant believe Corday would do this to Ejami fans. I really dont get it. If you look at Samis and Ejs 4 yr history from the very begining they were drawn to each other. Then you get all this writing about how Ej loves everything about Sami and Sami saying that all she wants is to be loved unconditionally. So to a veiwer your like, well thats Ejami. Regardless of Ej’s last name, which is why Sami stopped persuing Ej. To a viewer that follows the story, Samis soulmate doesnt scream Lucas or Rafe, because they both always tried to change her. For a long time Sami was the second choice behind Carrie for Lucas. When Rafe came along, he would bolt whenever Sami would get out of line so to speak. ie. asking questions about how Emily died and lying about the ransome notes.
    Getting back on track about the history, tptb gives Ejami the ax basically with the “rape” story. BUT Ejamis story does not end there, because the writers give us a truely remorseful Ej who is broken and starts to develop feeling for Sami. Then we have Sami forgiving him and even talking about her past doings “raping Austin” something about not forgiving him would be like not forgiving herself. So Ejami is revived, and the writers throw us Ejamis a curve ball by making one of Samis kids, Johnny, Ejs son! So, clearly the writers werent done with Ejami, and the “rape” was one of those stories that they were hoping would fall by the waste side.
    2007, 2008 tptb throws Ejamis another bone and sort of shows us Samis true feelings. Which is what we are seeing now. The Sami that wants Ej, but just cant admit it or wont allow herself to completely give in to them. Tptb screws with Ejami fans again, by having Sami have another kid by Ej, Sydney. Why oh Why would they do this if Ejami wasnt supposed to happen? During this time we get the Santo and Coleen story that look exactly like Sami and Ej and that is how the Brady-Dimera feud happened. They talk about Santo and Coleens forbidden love, which was the total parallel to Ejami. yada yada. So any viewer can see that these two were meant for each other. For godsakes theyre raising Brady-Dimera children! To any following viewer your thinking Ejami…soulmates….endgame!
    Ok, so Ejamis are like ok finally tptb is going to give us Ejami! NOPE! Ejole comes and tanks. Safe begins, on a story about Ejami I might add. End of 2009 roles around and Ejami is back in each others orbit for round who knows, lost count. And Ejamis are like finallly its going to happen…..NOPE tptb makes Ej the sydnapper!
    Ejamis were content enough to be having an Ejami storythis summer, and in the back of our minds we knew Safe would be reunited, BUT Sami would be fighting her feelings for Ej during this reunion; so we thought. Now, Corday throws out this out of the blue spoiler, that says screw you to Ejami; that Safe will be reunited, and that Safe is the future becase thats what the GA wants. WTF? Is the Ejami fans reactions, because how can you strum us along for this long and not ever give Ejami a true shot based on all their history??? I just dont get it!!

    I think the chemistry between Ej and Nicole is awesome, after watching Friday show I’m convinced of it! And they need to be together. Ej did love Nicole and he will again. At least they have a love/hate relationship that more then Ej and Sami have; they have 2 children, 1 by a not so pleasant circumstance, and the other by a weak moment for Sami missing Lucas. When I see Ej and Sami together all I see is how nasty and mean he has been to her in all the time they have known each other, all he has done is lie, manipulate, scheme and try to control her life, and that’s not love. Theirs an old saying “love does hurt” and that’s all Ej has done to Sami time after time! Sami loves Rafe and needs Rafe in her life, she is a mature woman with 4 kids and needs happiness and that’s with Rafe, not someone like Ej jerking her chain all the time!

    Yes, EJ loved Nicole BUT he was NEVER in love with her-his heart completely and utterly belonged to his Samantha. She KNEW that otherwise she wouldn’t have been constantly jealous, lied about her miscarriage and pretended that Sydney was hers. Besides, he never looked at her or behaved this way he does with Sami. Moreover, NUMEROUS characters ( Lexie, Anna, Fay, Stefano even Nicole herself ( she admitted that to Chloe when she was in prison) that have stated that EJ LOVES Sami. Even JS in ALL his interviews has confirmed that Sami is the woman in EJ’s heart. Nicole was EJ’s rebound-he only married her ( he admitted it himself not long before her deception was uncovered) because he thought she was Sydney’s mom.

    Also, I’m afraid we have to disagree regarding the fact that EJ’s feelings for Sami aren’t ” real”. It’s true that he goes about winning her affections in a dishonest way-and I for one hope that the writers end this vicious cycle for once and for all by making him realise that he has to come clean to her. Also he has such a disfunctional way of expressing himself because he doesn’t KNOW any better: he was trained and mentored by none other than Stefano, who isn’t the best role model to express love in a healthy way. BUT NO manipulations, lies and schemes can MAKE someone fall in love with you-Sami does that all on her own. And yes she does love him-even Lucas (her bff and who knows her through and through) knew that: that is why LUMI ultimately ended ( IF it was just sex, Lucas would have forgiven her eventually; afterall he was in prison, he TOLD her to move on, she didn’t know he was being released so he didn’t really have a leg to stand on). Ok, she’s never said ILY to EJ, but they’re just words, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have feelings for him when she obviously DOES. An example: when she wakes up at the cabin after she finds out she’s pregnant-she imagines EJ is lying next her and kisses him BUT it is Lucas that she’s actually smootching. When realises this-she breaks it off immediately and accuses Lucas of coming onto her. Another example: when she’s at the safehouse and reads about EJole’s wedding announcement she imagines she’s the one marrying EJ. And there are countless of other examples of the fact that she really cares for EJ, but I really don’t have the time to list them. If you don’t believe me-look for DaysLjay’s profile on YouTube and you’ll see.
    Now as to why she’s always denied it-it’s very complex and a number of posters have already explained the reasons. What it comes down to is that he’s a Dimera-representing “danger” and “evil”. Moreover she’s terrified of an uncertain future with EJ. In addition, her family hates him and she’s always seeking their approval, so she wouldn’t go for the “bad boy”. She’s IN LOVE with the idea of a “hero”, “safety” and “stability” because of her childhood and that is why she buries her feelings for EJ (which keep resurfacing btw) and runs to men like Rafe-the “SAFE” choice.

    Lucy replied

    Ej and Sami has a far more powerful love/hate relationship than Ej and Nicole and most important thing : Ej loved Nicole well rather he grown to love her but Sami was always the first in his heart and mind..actually they were three in Ejole marriage : Ej Sami and Nicole. Nicole deserves better than to be rebound girl, 2nd choice and with Ej she will always be that well if one day he doesn’t loathe her and despises her like he does..not sure about that..ah and he really treated like crap also..she was somewhat his victim even with all the schemes she did against him behing his back..

    Uh, i don’t think so- in fact it’s just the opposite. Sami was in love with EJ when she was in the safehouse-even Rafe knew it: he confronted her about her feelings when she smashed her mobile in a hissy fit AFTER EJ phoned her to tell her he was “moving on” with Nicole. She only started to date Rafe AFTER she disrupted EJ’s wedding to Nicole (and she didn’t necessarily do this to tell him the truth about Grace otherwise she would have waited AFTER his wedding. No, she did this because she was still in love with EJ. Her conversation with Lucas clearly showed that. When she found out what EJ had done to Philip, she changed her mind about telling him the truth about Grace and buried her feelings because she saw Stefano II. Right now she using her feelings for Rafe, just like she used her feelings for Lucas to try to block EJ out. The bottom line: she doesn’t want to love EJ, but she does. The sooner she gets over herself the better.

    Miranda, you are exactly right. Rafe has been Sami’s rebound whenever she thinks EJ doesn’t want her.

    It’s all smoke and mirrors…..with the EJami backstory, history, and chemistry..you would have to be a complete idiot not to give the fans a romantic lovestory to bring everything full circlt! They are made for each other and personally, they are the reason I continue to watch Days! GO EJAMI!

    EJ and Sami are waaaay more ccmpelling than Sami and Rafe as a pairing. Sure they have a disfunctional and unromantic past, but there’s definately potential there. There both extremely complex: EJ wants to be complex he wants to be a better man (which is why Nicole was NOT the woman for him- he became really EVIL with her by his side. He basically became the man he did NOT want to be) but struggles with his Dimera side; Sami wants to be loved completely and unconditionally (which is why it’s so tragicthat she can’t see that EJ, for all his faults, is the only man who does) but has this naïve ideal of having a knight in shining armour (which is why she turns to men like Rafe, Lucas and Austin).

    Moreover, they have AMAZING chemistry-they’re the reason I tuned into DOOL in the first place. It’s also a shame about the whole rape thing-I think that’s the reason tptb are unwilling to give them a REAL chance-that they come to together under honest circumstances and Sami FINALLY just embraces her feelings for EJ. Also, I don’t believe it’s the first time that we have this type of pairing in the soap world: Bill (Horton)raped Laura (DOOL) and they became a supercouple; the same applies to the infamous Luke and Laura (GH)-so why not EJ and Sami. And regarding the fact that they hurt each other-didn’t LUMI do horrid things to each other as well (e.g. Lucas had Sami go to deathrow for a crime HE committed)? And they got past it.

    For me, it’s Ejami. I love their story, and I love James Scott and Alison Sweeney for telling it so well and for making this couple believable, and beloved, to so many people. In my opinion, no one else comes close to the magic that these two actors bring to the show as Ejami. I want Ejami.

    Not sure if this is how you respond to the main thread, but GO EJAMI! I cannot imagine Corday having really spoiled things this far in advance, so I have to think this was a ploy to get people vocal. Maybe that is wishful thinking on my part, but I sure hope not. EJAMI has lit up the screen since day one. I was a lukewarm viewer in 2006, but after reading the message boards about the new EJ character, I decided to take a peek. I was immediately reeled in because of JS and AS chemistry. I had not seen a new character that enjoyable since the early days of Patch and Kayla and Jack and Jen. It was a different story because the lead character was Samantha Brady, not a do-goder Jen or Kayla, but still HUGE chemistry. What made it better was that days had two villains with a soft spot falling for one another from first sight…………

    TANGO anyone? Dance in the house in the rain anyway? First REAL kiss amidst the black gloved threats anyone?

    How could any Sami Brady fan in that moment, when they had no idea EJ was the gloved hand (unless they were spoiled), not have felt it? I know some did not, obviously, but to me the chemistry was so electric. Although I loved Samantha with Brandon too, EJ has been the only person whose true love for her fighting, charismatic bad girl spirit has come through 100%.

    If it was an outrage you wanted from fans Corday, and some vocal cries, well hear me scream! EJAMI EJAMI EJAMI.

    Greetings from Belgium! I discovered EJami haphazardly on YouTube and was instantly smitten! So, you see EJ and Sami have an international appeal-and before you wonder, yes I know all about their past. I admit it isn’t a very “romantic” one because of the “rape”. I’ve put the word between quotations because it can be interpreted both ways. It was rape because she had sex against her will. On the other hand, it wasn’t really rape in the traditional sense- he did give her “choice” albeit a dreadful one at that: sleep with him or let the man you love die. Moreover, he didn’t physically force himself on her (yes he was holding a gun when she was helping him through the roadblock, but not when he made his “indecent proposal”). I think in a courtroom or in the eyes of the law it would be seen as “sexual extortion” or coercion, not really rape. Anyway, whether it was rape or not, it’s immaterial to me, I’ve gotten past it because Sami and the show have. Besides when I read up on her history on wikipedia I discovered she’s no “angel” herself (she actually DID rape Austin-there’s no grey area there). Moreover, this is a SOAP and soaps have the tendency to: have characters do crazy things and get away with it and find redemption (e.g. murder or attempted murder), have REALLY unrealistic storylines (e.g. the Salem Stalker storyline (I read about that on wikipedia)). In addition, haven’t there already been pairings in the soapworld that have rape in their history (e.g. Luke and Laura; Bill and Laura Horton)? Yet no one complained or whined about them and they became supercouples. Maybe the circumstances for these pairings weren’t exactly the same as EJ and Sami (Luke was supposedly drunk when he forced himself on Laura), but no matter how you spin it rape is rape! Bottom line: there seems to be a double standard when it comes to EJami-and that is a damn shame! Also, I’d just like to add that some have commented that they DON’T want Sami and EJ together because they don’t like the idea of a rapist and his victim being paired together-that is completely understandable. BUT as EJ’s a rapist, they DO like him with another woman. Huh?!! I would think they’d want him in JAIL and locked up for good for what he did.

    Moving on…the reason I like EJ and Sami is NOT because of their history-but because there is something tragic about them yet beautiful at the same time. Tragic, because they never seem to get a real chance, there are always these lies hanging over them. Beautiful, because despite it all-I do believe they love each other: EJ, being a Dimera has never been taught how to love in a healthy way (who can with a dad like Stefano, right?) and he’s so completely consumed by his love for Sami that he goes about it in a disfunctional way (the lies, schemes,etc). Sami, likewise, has always been in love with EJ-she’s never admitted it nor embraced her feelings for EJ but they were always there-Lucas always knew that even when she didn’t. Coming back to the whole rape thing-it isn’t really “rapemance” because they were already in love with each other before the rape. The problem is that Sami, with her traumatic past caused by Stefano wreaking havoc on her family, buried her feelings for EJ as he is a Dimera-that terrified her and still does. Instead she turns to “heroic” men whom her family respect and love-which stems from her need to get approval by her family.

    I think they’re perfect for each other because: they’re cut from the same cloth- they’re not evil but not goody two shoes either; they’re both manipulative, liars and schemers; they understand each other; they allow each other to be themselves (EJ’s sweeter and a better man when he’s around Sami. Sami’s more her old self around EJ-unlike Rafe, then she’s always groveling, weak and pathetic). In short, they are UNIQUE.

    Safe, on the other hand, has nothing to offer. Their “lovestory” isn’t original at all-it has been done a thousand times in romance novels, television shows and soaps.

    I TOTALLY AGREE! I don’t view Rafe as a whole person at all. It seems that he just likes to play a hero, and how boring will they be when the whole EJ truth comes out and he no longer has a way to play a hero. His hero complex makest makes Sami the eternal damsel in distress, but that is not her at all! She does have her vulnerable side, which is great to see with EJ, but she knows how to take care of herself. So it makes it so much more special when Sami is able to be truly vulnerable and gentle with EJ. He is good for her because he brings out the best of all of her sides; the strong fighter and the vulnerable girl who wants to be loved.

    Sami is also good for EJ because she won’t let him do horrible things like drugs and mob stuff, and not by just prohibiting it, but by motivating him to be better. He has said himself that she is the only person who gets to him, and that has been seen in many scenes between them. She is able to reach his heart and he changes what needs to be changed, and not everything about himself. They are great for each other!

    Actually what I would like to see is lumi back. Ejami just reminds me of the rape and makes my skin crawl and Safe is just not that interesting. There really was no build up of their relationship and development of their characters together.

    Frankly I want lumi back because at least they have a story that has spanned two decades and lots of unfinished business to deal with like who shot EJ and who is Johnny’s real father. Oh so many directions to turn.

    Bring on LUMI!!!!

    sami & rafe – no chemistry
    sami & EJ – the 2 actors have chemistry together. Unfortunately by writing a rape scene (yes, it was rape) as their “first time” ruined them as a pairing. It is ( and has been) offensive, repulsive and disturbing to put them together after such a union. What else would the writers like to glorify ( or gloss over)? Rape not enough? How’s about genocide?
    The writers ruined what was good chemistry.
    sami & lucas – great chemistry. forgivable mistreatment of each other.

    Unlike other viewers who wanted sami with lucas all the time I perservered with the sami/ej pairing ( they need some drama ) figuring the writers would reunite her with Lucas. I feel betrayed. I guess DOOL did not want to keep their audience – they must only want new viewers who do not know the history.

  175. SAMI SHOULD BE WITH EJ!! says:

    I have watched this Soap Opera off and on for years too. Sami is actually the only character I found interesting…until EJ arrived. I always loved Sami and Lucas together…again, until EJ arrived. And now that Rafe is here, I STILL want Sami with EJ!

    So-called Super Couples have had plenty of lies and deception between them at some point in the relationship because this is, after all, A SOAP OPERA! But Super Couples are not supposed to be BORING like Sami and Rafe together. They are hardly anything like a Super Couple. The fact that people call them that is ridiculous to me because there hasn’t even been much revealed about Rafe alone. A Super Couple should consist of two people who are interesting and strong, integral parts of the Soap on their own, and that is NOT Rafe. I like him; he’s nice and good, but one-dimensional.

    Sami and EJ are both layered and complex, and their relationship would be interesting. People say that their love is not love at all, but lust or an issue of control, but isn’t love supposed to be forgiving? They both have forgiven each other for so much in the past. True, it could be said that people who truly love each other won’t hurt each other so much or so severely, but this is just not reality. The truth is love can hurt more than anything else, and just becasue you’re in love, it doesn’t make you perfect. You still make mistakes and react to things in an unhealthy way, and yes, you can still hurt the person you love. That is what makes the Sami/EJ relationship more realistic, which is hard for a Soap to do.

Sami is a mature woman now….not a wild woman like before….she loved her life with Rafe and ALL her children love him….not like EJ, where he always refers to his biological chldren and Sami as “his” family….. Rafe loves all of Sami’s children unconditionally…..the only way EJ can get Sami is by his lying and manipulations……Sami’s deep love is for Rafe alone….Sami considers EJ
    a good father to his children…..She considers Rafe her soul mate and true love…why would EJ want leftovers! He would never have her heart!

    GO LUMI! Whoops, I mean GO SAFE! LOL!
    Yes , I’m really a Lumi fan and always will be but I will take anything over Sami be pushed, shoved, and manipulated into “falling in love” with her rapist. When they first did the rape scene I had high hopes for this show that since Sami was a past rape victim that they would take great care in handling this subject. I should have known better! DOOL not only swept the rape under the rug they also tried to put a victim and her rapist together. What kind of message was that sending to women, young and old, who were rape victims. That if you were raped you shouldn’t get mad or upset and you should forgive your rapist because he might turn out to be your true love. WTF! So for now I will cheer on Safe and hope for a Lumi ending or at least a HOT Lumi/Safe triangle. ; )

    Corday is a fool and not in touch with his audience if he is truly deceived into thinking the MAJORITY of the audience want Safe together instead of Ejami. All he would have to do is a little research and homework to find out this is NOT the case. Could this be the reason why our beloved Days is in trouble with rumours of cancellation etc?
    Ejami have triple the fanbase, amount of websites, youtube clips and hits than Safe. Recent fact…. for the months of May/June 2010 (with Ejami together & no Safe) Days scored 1st and second in ratings for woman watching the show between the ages of 18 to 49. So it’s all a bit of a joke as far as I’m concerned – laughable!
    Days has enough boring, dull and safe couples. It needs a couple with the cat & mouse games, mischievous & adventurous spirits with dreams, desires, passion & with the romance, dancing & sexual tension & attraction. That simply put is EJAMI. They have SO much history to waste and it’s about time they were given their chance. We the audience want to see EJ & Sami raising their young family together. Ejami deserve to be given that chance so do their family. Ejami are unpredictable as Sami recently said in her own words….” We are not normal.” Oh hallelujah, we and Days need a couple like that. They make it fun and unpredictable to watch and the possibilities are numerous with them together. Ejami’s chemistry and hotness doesn’t hurt either LOL. Go Ejami & Ejamily!

    PS: NOW THIS IS WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT!!! Who saw the scenes of Ejami from Wednesday the 30th June? Hot, hot, hot. If you haven’t seen it go to youtube and type in Days of our Lives Ejami 6/30/10. Ejami have it and we want to see it. More please!
    When Sami has tasted cream why would she go back to skim milk? When Sami has tasted eggs benedict why would she go back to scrambled eggs? When Sami has tasted fillet steak why would she go back to mince? Simply put the true to herself Sami, wouldn’t! In my opinion if Sami goes back to Rafe NOW she will be settling. Settling for the mundane and it will kill her. Our Sami is a fiesty, passionate, spirited girl who has always been bigger than life and wanted it ALL. EJ is her equal and can give it to her. EJ has lit her fire and is the only one who will FULLY SATISFY her.

Corday could use a little brush up in the intelligence department if he thinks most of the viewers favor Safe. That’s the most boring pairing I have ever had to watch. Sami and EJ together could bring wonderful storylines for the future. Rafe —nada! If Corday really is serious about the Ejami outcome, then he better be prepared to have his viewers drop drastically. I know I will never watch it again.

Mr. Corday I hope you change your mind. Sami knows exactly who EJ is and she is the one who started this whole baby thing. She knows all about his past and what he’s capable of. As soon as he realized that he loved her, he has regretted everything he’s done. Nicole needs to go away and take Rafe with her!!!!

    I have to agree. The two of them have had sooooo many issues over the years. It’s important to understand that there is always forgiveness required in a relationship. It’s usually not so serious but it’s there. The intensity of feelings between them is amazing. Sami and EJ, I mean the characters fairly sizzle with passion, conflict and love. Someone commented that with them together they would always have a storyline, their families would make it impossible for things not to come up all around them; even if they are happy. They could be happy for the rest of their lives on the show and there would always be surrounding issues, would be a great storyline insurance, even if it wasn’t a wonderful, passionate, loving and explosive relationship all on it’s own.

    Simply put….. Rafe treats Sami like dirt! I mean he has told her over & over again they are not an item, not a couple & not together yet at the drop of a hat (when he feels like it) expects her to come running. No wonder Rafe is in Sami’s head as EJ suggested IT IS BECAUSE RAFE IS PLAYING GAMES WITH HER HEAD! I mean question or challenge him and Rafe is out the door. Sami and the kids have already experienced this a few times. Rafe makes Sami feel insecure, doubtful of herself and her abilities, with Rafe she feels like she is NOT good enough. With EJ however, he is supportive & encourages her. To be independant and pursue her dreams. EJ is always complimentary of Samis beauty & ability as a mum. With EJ Sami is sure of herself and stands up for herself. Rafe and Sami are such a mismatch….. Rafe makes Sami look like a FOOL but with EJ Sami comes into her own and is a real WOMAN.

    It is a matter of opinion in my book AS is as good if not better as AZ (who is good) and JS has far better chemistry with Sweeney, actually it doesn’t even compare one second, moreover the relationship and history between his character Ej and the character of Sami has so much more potential, layers and complexity, it is so obvious. And Ej has been far more abusive with Nicole that with Sami so why would you want him with Nicole, his rebound, second choice that he loathes..ah yes it is to put Sami with Lucas (who is not on the show anymore lol) or with Rafe because you prefer to see Sami with anybody except Ej because in your mind Ej break up Lumi (he dated Sami before Lumi second round and Lucas dumped Sami so Ej did not intervene in their final break up) ah dilusional mind..whatever..Lumi fan..whatever..

The writers, under the tutelage of Mr. Corday and Mr. Tomlin, don’t seem to know how to use the wonderful gift they have been given with this duo, but I still believe that they can’t ignore the opportunity to tell a compelling story. The last six months, all we have heard about is “forgiveness” and “redemption”. If they don’t carry out this theme with EJami, then they’re officially crazy.

    Those who live in the past…the writers and the cast have moved on from there. Sami has never been afraid of Ej, shirked him, nor acted the victim with Ej. MOVE ON…GET A LIFE…THIS IS A SOAP. Ejami have so much chemistry together they just need to be in the same room together and sparks fly from their eyes to each other. Sami has always brought out the best in Ej and he really truly loves her and regrets what he put her through. He has to carry that guilt with him every day. Ejami are HOT together, playful together, and I love the flirting between them. Sami was the one who Dr Baker said committed the original sin by not telling Ej she was pregnant. When Grace died…then, and only then did she find it in her heart to tell Ej the baby was his, And she did it in such a cruel way. Why tell him at all, if he was never to know? So…in this case two wrongs don’t make a right. They have both done horrible things to each other, but in my opinion…they belong together and are each others soulmates. Sami will forgive Ej because she did the same. Ejami are the most exciting couple I’ve ever seen and if she ends up with Agent Buzzkill, I will turn off Days and never watch it again. And there are a heck of a lot more Ejami fans than there will ever be Safe fans. Gooooo Ejami ! <3

    SAFE is the hottest couple on Days. That locker room scene was a fire storm of passion. I love that Ej and Sami’s wedding looks like something set up in a funeral home. Ba, ha! That sums up their depressing & abusive relationship. It has been tiring this whole spring and summer listening to Ej make all his “speeches” of his so called love. If the man has to do all that talking to convince everyone then forget about it! He is just a greasy salesman trying to sell a dud – himself! Sami and Rafe raise the roof when it comes to romance and showing a couple truly in love. The way they dream of each other is beautiful. I love that Days is coming back to those roots and building a strong foundation with this couple. SAFE are hot honeys that rock the show in every way!

    The Bradys once again prove to be the exact opposite of what they say they are. Today when EJAMI announced to Roman and Caroline they were getting married, there was no understanding at all. EJ gave a beautiful speech of why he was the best for Sami. He spoke about how he has grown and how he understands because he is now the father of a daughter. The Bradys could not gather as a family and wish them the best. Even Stefano has more family feeling than they do. EJ pour his heart out and they were like stone. Long Live EJAMI!

    I am still pulling for EJ and Sami. Hope that EJ confesses the sydnapping to Sami – bf she finds out another way. Trying to enjoy all good EJ and Sami scenes – but it is difficult not to worry that it may not turn out in EJ and Sami’s favor. I appreciate the wedding planned and photos that are coming out as teasers.

    I think Days will be hurt very badly if they end EJ and Sami romance now.

    I think EJ and Sami have an incredible story and such chemistry. Hope Days does not end the romance and relationship now. To me, it is integral to Days staying on air. Certainly, the show needs to pick up pace and develop other stories that are fresh. But not sure KC and TPTB realize EJ and Sami are soap opera gold – not perfect but solid.

    IMHO, Safe is just not interesting or exciting. GG as Rafe may need a new love interest and a new super sleuth story with a mentor like a returning CS as Shane Donoven.

    The show has to go with EJami. There is no other couple out there who incites such controversy and passion in fans. Sure, the show could go the ‘safe’, predictable route, but if they do, it’s at their own peril. Looking forward to more EJami awesomeness!

    Ejami all the way. No one has loved Sami as EJ has. He accepts her for who she is; the good or bad and doesn’t seem to try to change her. He understands her because they are so much alike. I hope they will be together; I will be so disappointed and so will so many fellow EJami fans! James Scott and Alison Sweeney have so much chemistry and sizzle that I can hardly stand it. The way they look at each other exudes tenderness and love and their kisses are passionate but not brutal as Rafe’s grabbing Sami in the locker room. It showed his trying to prove that their physical attraction will dominate over Sami and Ej’s 4 year long attraction to each other.

    Ej’s understanding of Roman and Caroline’s feelings on the announcement that they’re getting married shows how much he loves Sami and their children. This coming week will be exciting to watch and I hope that we EJami fans will not be heartbroken by TPTB at Days. I like Stefano’s trying to smooth over Will’s feelings on the wedding. Let’s hope all will be in accord and the wedding will happen.

    You Lumis and Safes can yell rape all you want, but it’s too bad Sami never saw it like that and she was never afraid of Ej as a normal person would be afraid of their rapist. Sami was afraid of Alan and shot his balls off, but I never saw fear in Samis eyes for Ej. But you all think he would be great with Arianna…Give me a break.A rapist…oooooooooohhhhh noooooo!!!! I don’t recall Ej ever raping anyone…not even Sami. I don’t see Ej hanging around dark corners waiting for his next victim to rape and a rapist always repeats….Ej is NOT A RAPIST. Get on with the show.. All the same haters who post over at NBC…along with the MODS who are not doing their job very well. I think if one can’t be fair and honest in their job…they have no business having it in the first place.
    So ROCK ON EJAMI…THE COUPLE OF CHOICE…EJAMI FOREVER <3 Ejami will be back together…mark my words. They belong together and all the Polls show the majority of Days fans want Ejami together…Safe hardly makes a dent in the poll. LOL. So KC, it may be your couple of choice but you know nothing about what the fans want to see. They want to see EJAMI……SOULMATES.

    Yes I think your right Tina…… it’s almost like TPTB don’t really want to commit to either couple in fear of upsetting fans. But you cannot do that forever. I do however fear it anyones gonna be upset it will be us Ejami fans. They seem to wanna keep flogging that dull, boring and what the minority want couple. I for one am going back to reading spoilers I won’t watch Safe. If and when Ejami are interwined again then and only then will they have my attention and viewership!

    I’ve been watching Days for a long time and then I stopped watching for a while because the show got dull. Then when EJami started happening, I got hooked all over again. If EJ and Sami do not get a fair shot at being a couple soon, then this longtime Days viewer is gone. By the way, I’m sick and tired of Sami having different love interests. Days made me fall for Lumi, then Brami, and finally Ejami. Unfortunately I can’t take Safe, but it would be nice to see Sami settled for once, just not with Rafe. :/ EJ also deserves a fair shot at love…

    I’ve heard all of the arguments against EJami. I know people are applauding Sami blowing EJ’s brains out — I find it sick. The punishment doesn’t fit the crime. But if that’s what rocks people’s socks, whatever. I am more than done with this show. I accept that EJami is kaput, but for Sami to shoot EJ in the head while he’s lying defenseless and then go have sex with Rafe — and they say GH is morally repugnant. Sonny has nothing on Sami. At least he doesn’t pretend to be a saint. She and Rafe make me want to vomit.

  226. Tina says:

    No I don’t think EJ deserves to be shot – and when everything comes out I don’t think Sami will shoot EJ. But I also believe the storyline has been so mangled for several months, they have to let this Rafe storyline play out. Sami has to choose to leave Rafe of her own accord. However, it does not change the fact that James Scott & Alison Sweeney have been giving spectacular performances and at the end of the day THIS story is all about Ejami and their passion. It’s not over for them. It’s a good thing I believe NBC and Sony have more stake in this show than Corday. It’s so disappointing to see an Exec Prod just basically toss out a whole fanbase as if they are nothing – they should muzzle him. He’s not doing this show any favors.

    I’ve watched Days since it began and have never written to voice my opinion, however, I am so upset with Ken Corday’s decision to reunite Sami and Rafe and to destroy what she has with EJ, that I have decided it is time to speak up.

    Sami has always loved Ej and Ej has always loved Sami. Sure, Rafe was there for her when she needed him but they have about as much chemistry as sand and sand…..I finally thought that the writers would give EJ and Sami a chance….have EJ confess his sins and Sami forgive him…..like what she was preaching to Grandma Caroline in the Pub….”we Brady’s talk about forgiveness, but we don’t practice it.”……there is so much more power in her as a woman and a mother if she is able to understand and forgive….then they should move out of the Dimera mansion and finally show us what their relationship could be…..obviously, it is a soap opera and there will be trials, but that is the good stuff……also, I think the writers happened on something when they paired Nicole and Rafe together…..would have never thought of it but loved it when I saw it……and now Sami is going to shoot EJ and be the one that can pull the plug????? REALLY????? Tell Ken Corday to take a moment and log on to you tube and see how much is there about Sami and EJ and tell me if he really thinks the fans want her with RAFE???????????

    Yes your right Corday is out of touch. All I can say is no wonder the show is in trouble and has rumours of cancellation. Even when the Days/NBC website ITSELF ran a poll a few weeks ago Ejami was the clear viewer favourite. It went like this…… I believe EJ and Sami are soulmates 72%, Sami and Rafe 24%, EJ and Nicole 1% and EJ and Sami should be alone 3%. You simply cannot stick your head in the sand and ignore what is obvious. They asked, we spoke NOW WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
    I also have to say the writing of Days for the last week and a half has been awful. It is not in good taste to have Sami hop into bed with Rafe on the same day she was to marry EJ. It is even worse when you take into concentration her kids need her now more than ever….. to answer their questions. I mean one minute mummy and daddy are getting married next minute mummy and daddy aren’t, mummy and daddy are fighting and yelling, daddy is crying and we’re being forced to leave. And for what? To be baby sat by Grandma so mummy and Rafe can go and get it on all night and next day!!! Sami has only ever been a hands on mum when shes been with EJ because she follows his lead. I think the whole thing is distasteful, disgraceful and disrespectful to the storyline, characters and fans. Badly done Days, badly done!
    I also agree with another poster who said when the writers know a couple pairing isn’t popular or have no chemistry they try to over compensate by having them have sex all the time. This is the case with Safe but unfortunately for them it comes across as trying too hard and makes their relationship look even more shallow, nasty and desperate.

When she throws the gun into the river, her hair is neatly comb and is down…Things are too obvious that Sami did it……The writers need to come up with a brilliant twist or the ratings will continue to drop. The show is now “Our Lives in a Daze” instead of “Days of Our Lives”….I wish RAFE could die in the line of duty since TPTB want him to be a hero……Ken Corday you are wrong a lot of viewers want EJami!! James Scott and Alison Sweeney have great onscreen chemistry. Galen Gering and Alison Sweeney pairing is very boring.

    OK, for me and all the other Ejami fans who have waited almost 5 years for this electric pairing. We are so loyal, we understand Sami and Ej, and we love James and Alison.
    A show which appreciates this very large loyal fan base, will write a good stroy line for the most romantic couple on daytime.

    Don’t mean to be rude, Michael, but you could have at least archived your old comments in this thread before asking for new ones. It’s tres mal to see June 10, 2010 as the first comment listed when you’re specifically asking for comments on a question you post on 1.20.2011. :/
    Regardless…my answer is I WANT EJAMI! ENOUGH already with Rafe and the horrible degredation of each and every character in Salem to cow-tow to the BS concept of this character!
    I actually had to stop watching the show, the first time in 27 our of my 33 years on earth, because of how horrendous the stories became!!!!
    I don’t know WHO is in charge or HOW or WHY the powers that be continue to throw everything recognizable about Salem away on the altar of Rafe Hernandez but I simply REFUSE to be a party to out and out child abuse for a man that makes me nauseous every time he appears on my screen.
    I assure you, I’m not exagerating in the least. Funny thing is, I get a lot of non-soap viewers dropping by my house during Days hours and they all express dislike of Rafe and acceptance of Ej. Each one of them ( 5 to be precise, 5 most varied and “general” audience in they watch NO soap operas on an regular basis) volunteered the information that they thought Sami and EJ were “viral” together.
    If you can explain to me why tptb choose to continue on this endless path of destruction, I’d be forever in your debt. I thought I knew everything about this show and now I know absolutely nothing. I can’t even watch it anymore….You tell me. Please.

    I totally agree with all of this!
    I think it has to do with business, this farce of a storyline between Sami and Rafe. Anyone in their right mind can see there’s no chemistry there – AND Rafe is so dull, boring, flat as a character.
    The reason we all love EJ is that his character constantly borders between good and evil…it’s a classic battle and everyone’s holding out for him to be *just a little more over on the good side*. The same is true of Sami’s character…or should I say USED TO BE. Now, she’s written as this annoying “good girl” with tendencies to be difficult. How BOOORING. /yawn/
    If the show’s producers knew anything at all, they’d make Sami and EJ together, not necessarily married right away, but there is SO MANY possibilities for getting them into “sticky, sexy situations”, I’d be so happy watching that. I mean them together is a constant feast of fight, MAKEUP SEX….fight, makeup sex and because of James Scott, YUM, I never get tired of watching it! Those two characters challenging each other is what it’s all about!
    PLEASE get rid of Rafe!

    Michael –

    Well, I really do not even know if there is any point discussing this..It seems to me like my feelings or thoughts do not matter to this show at all. We write, send, post, tweet, vote over and over but no one seems to be listening to us…Ejami can win every poll with landslide, fill their inboxes with ejami support, talk about Ejami on all the msg boards..We can scream over and over to the heavens above We want Ejami..but none of it makes a difference, we simply do not matter to this show..Sadly I have come to that realization. If they can totally erase the history of Ejami, by making Ej having never loved Sami, and he has never been heartbroken .Despite the fact that I have endured every heartache both Sami and Ej have been through, furthermore JS was nominated for his heartwrenching performance when Ej found out about Grace…It is really sad when writers do not understand characters dynamics or history….Now, I find that with every scene they robb me more and more of the things I love about Ejami..I am so exhausted fighting and supporting for Ejami, when to tpbp all my efforts seem in vain. Since the shooting, I actually feel guilty and ashamed for being an Ejami fan, like it is a curse to love them so. It feels like we ejamis are being punished personally for being so passionate about Ejami. Especially with the shooting scene, I feel that was a stragetic move to break our spirits down for Ejami..Conratulations dool you succeeded, I am haunted by those horrific images, it’s funny how we ejamis want Sami to apologize to Ej…Hmm but for me I feel that we as Ejamis are owed a public apology by this show..I don’t think I have ever cried so much as i did back in Sept, what this show did was heartless and masochistic to it’s faithful passionate viewers. For KC to even brag about how good it was to have Sami shoot Ej like that, was cruel and offensive..We were already heartbroken, but once again our feelings never mattered. I feel that anytime I want to mention the forbidden couple Ejami, show my love for them..I never receieve any positive feedback or empathy for how they made us Ejamis feel with this story.. Anytime there is some Ejami bonding, just a tiny bit, next moment they snatch it away in the following scene and I am left with nothing to hope for, nothing to aspire to. All the interviews and stories have been so biased, onesided, and mistconstrued it makes me feel betrayed and manipulated. I laugh bitterly when I read about Ej being humanized, what about Sami’s barabaric behaviour?? Can we justify that shooting an unconscious suidicidal father of your children in the head, leave him to die in his wedding suit, have sex all night with her boyfriend and then gets engaged while the dying man is bleeding to death on her bed?? Is than humanic?? Is attacking violently Arianna almost bludgenly her to death with a paper weight humanic?? Is using physical violence as a threat humanic?? If Ej needs humanizing, I think Sami does too..and I find it utterly disgraceful that this show thinks it is jusitifed for her to act in this manner and still be worthy of mother of the year award!! Since the shooting, and Sami’s insistent lack of remorse and dispicable behaviour towards not only Ej but her children as well..I have lost my respect and trust for this show, a show that I always loved because it had real values, about family ties, forgiveness, redemption and true love. That is what Ejami has always been about right from the very begining is that true love understands and true love forgives..So if my thoughts actually do matter, then yes I believe Ejami deserve an honest chance to have an epic lovestory that conquerers all. Ejami inspires me to want that true love, to be able to really understand one’s soul mate and with really loving that person means to be able to forgive them as well. If Ej can forgive Sami for leaving to die, then Sami can forgive Ej too. That is to me what being a supercouple is about, being able to face adversity and overcome it along with learning and growing from their mistakes. Over the years, I have seen Ej and Sami grow and learn from each other, the way the interact now shows more intimacy and true understanding of one another. I ask again, does my opinion actually matter at all?? I feel like Ej loosing his trust in Sami, I have lost my trust and faith in this show, because it seems like they just do not care how they make us feel. In fact, what they have done to our Ejami is inhumane, so maybe these writers need some humanizing!!! No matter how they try and erase Ejami, I will always love Ejami.

    It is beyond me why Days refuses to capitalize on their best asset, Ejami. They seem to satisfied with stoking fanwars and teasing audiences with Ejami long enough to get renewed, then yank the proverbial rug out of fans again. When will they realize that viewers want to tune in and have an escape from the yuckiness of real life? I suggest they take notes from Y&R, they seem to know how to write a “grey” couple that is compelling. I will forever be an Ejami fan, the same cannot be said about me forever being a Days fan. No matter what they do to try to get me to hate EJ, Sami, or Ejami, I will not. My hate for the show and the writers grows with each nauseating episode.

    Gotta be honest. I couldn’t care less anymore. I am an EJami fan but I’m not going to sit around waiting for something that Corday has made clear will NEVER materialize. And I’m not going to sit through hours of bad soap opera for a wish that will never come true. I did that in the early 2000′s with Days while other soap operas were actually putting out good material. Now that I’ve seen what I missed back then (thanks to YouTube) while I wasted hours of my life with dreadful Days — I’m not planning to make the same mistake again. I’m in search of a good soap opera. Hopefully I’ll find one. But I can guarantee, I will not be wasting my time on Days like I did back then. Days might get sky high ratings, but it still has become meaningless to this former viewer. Peace out.

Certainly all the drama and passion has continued to be between them, even though they’ve been enemies lately. Here’s hoping for EJ and Sami to get a powerful story of romance and redemption.

    I have been watching Days for a long time andSami has always been one of my fav characters, so I knowwhat she is like. EJ is the first guy to love her truely and unconditionally for who she is. He is loves her good, bad, and everything! I was a Lumi fan, but once EJ came it was impossible to fight that chemistry, it just HEATS up the screen! Seriously they could be talking and still HOT! They are so much a like and im sick of the rape thing being an issue because she raped Austin!! infact hers might even be worse because she drugged him and he was practically unware, while she was blackmailed into it. Both wrong though, im just saying she is just as bad as EJ so they understand each other! Rafe and everyone else has always tried to change her and treat her like a child. I hope Corday is messing with us, because it is so clear the majority of fans want EJAMI! And if its not gonna happen I really dont see a point in watchign the show much longer…

    Indeed. Lumi/Safe and EJole is how it should be.

    I think for Sami, either Rafe or Lucas are great choices. I also believe EJ loves Nicole more than he has loved anyone. EJami is terrible and overrated.

    Ken Corday should have learnt his lesson..Rafe is boring..GG can’t act..EJ and Sami take the audience on a journey..Good, bad and everything in between..EJ and Sami deserved their time as a couple..Their chemistry even with recent scenes is like your watching a feature film..What I don’t understand is fans who choose Lucas/Rafe over EJ..SAME character who be littles sami and she reforms back to being insecure and child like..EJ sees her as an Equal..They both have done horrible things..She isn’t Carrie and I don’t want ther to be..Sami grew up being around EJ …I know what I saw in 2006-2008 and I never went online until recently..The majority of the audience wants EJ and Sami together..Mabe Michael can print this and give it to KC.. EJ isn’t the moustache twirling villan that they wanted the audience to Hate..Noone who fell in LOVE with EJAMI would ever hate EJ..

    GG can act, and just because Rafe is a good guy does not mean he is boring. As for belittling, Rafe and Lucas never have belittled Sami; she chose to become better on her own, because she realized she made some big mistakes. Sami has, however, belittled EJ. Everyone is talking about EJ being a wimp when he is with Sami or chasing after him. EJami has chemistry, but that is not all a relationship should be based upon. Sami has also never said that she was in love with EJ. She has had feelings for him, yes, but she has never been IN LOVE with EJ. And everytime she was “with” him, or had the opportunity to be with him, she ended up choosing another man (Rafe, Lucas). I think both deserve better. EJole love and accept each other for who they are, whereas Sami kept telling EJ to change, and to “not be Stefano’s dog” or something of the sort. This made EJ change into a wimpy version of himself who cried over losing Sami because of a mistake he made. There is a reason EJ is happier with Nicole. There is a reason Sami ends up choosing Rafe (Lucas in the past) over EJ. THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO BE! Some ratings reports have even been showing that the ratings are higher when Sami is with either Lucas or Rafe, and when EJ is with Nicole. This is how it is meant to be.

    It is now 2013 and the fans are so happy to see the long over due soul mates in acting couple , EJ and Sami together!!!! This story line is great no matter if their are bumps in the road. This couple is so much fun to watch. The fact that they have this great love for one another that binds them together makes fans want to watch the show. We would like to see the two of them in action for all the Days of Our Lives shows. I am still hoping for a movie, someone please contact Tom Hanks. We have been fans for 35 years plus and it has never been better than it is with this couple. Thanks writers we never get tired of this couple, we only want more. We have wanted them together for 6 long years.
