207 October 11th, 2014 DAYS OF OUR LIVES: EJ Is Murdered! The End Of The Epic Story Of EJami!

Courtesy/NBC

On Friday’s episode of NBC’s Days of our Lives, it was the gun shot heard around daytime! NOTE: If you have not watched the episode, we advise you not to read on as we give a short recap of the action within this post. 

After EJ (James Scott) got into a fight with the very criminal Clyde (James Reade), next thing you know a gun shot was fired by Clyde’s henchmen! EJ was left shot and bleeding on the ground.  Sami (Alison Sweeney), who went to find him was in the park and in the woods, heard the shots and called 911, and then proceeded to try and find EJ.  And when she did find him, she found her husband bleeding out and struggling to stay alive.  As the scenes unfolded, fans of the love story of EJami were getting the feeling that this could be the end of the line for their favorite on-screen duo!

James Scott (EJ) who made his exit from the NBC soap opera known back in May of this year shortly, before when he wrapped his final scenes, had made the decision to leave DAYS over a year ago.  Now what was left for Scott’s many fans was to see how EJ would be written-out!  Would Sami and EJ have a happy ending, since Alison Sweeney is also set to depart the series after almost 22 years later this month?  Or, would they kill-off EJ?  From the looks of yesterday’s episode, all indications point to the later, especially since later in the episode, EJ is pronounced dead.

Major kudos go to both James Scott who played his final moments with Alison Sweeney to the hilt, especially when a dying EJ told Sami, to tell the children he loves them.  And as for Alison, she continues to give some of the best performances in her soap career in her final weeks on DAYS as next, Sami kept telling EJ she was going to continue to tell him she loves him, over and over again, if he will just stay with her!  Sadly, when the paramedics and Rafe (Galen Gering) arrive on the scene, EJ is dead.

Later, it was in the hospital scenes that Alison Sweeney continued her stellar performance as she could not give into the realization that EJ was truly dead.  Stefano (Joe Mascolo) calls in the middle of it all and puts two and two together after a shortened conversation with Sami, that EJ is in the morgue! Roman (Josh Taylor) comes to comfort Sami, but she tells her father to go tell the children who are at Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will’s (Guy Wilson) that her and EJ can’t make it to the party they are having.

Finally at the end of the episode, Sami goes to visit her dead husband in the morgue, where she cries placing her head across his chest, realizing his heart is not beating.

So DAYS fans, what did you think of EJ being murdered?  Were you sad to see James Scott written out this way?  What did you think of the performance of Alison Sweeney?  Are you still of hope that EJ isn’t really dead after all in soapland? Share your thoughts at this game-changing moment below!

    OK. So, just watched Mondays show. What the hell did Kristen just inject into EJ’s arm?? I’m gonna be glued to the TV all week!!!

    It looked to me she removing blood from his arm. Stefano told her to get to the morgue it was of the essence I think he will try to clone ej

    CeeCee replied

    So, we dont’t know if Kristen injected something into EJ or withdrew blood?
    Is it possible that Kristen is privy to EJ faking his death?
    Then again, that would mean Stefano knows also, which does not quite jive with his behavior right now. He is actually mourning his son.
    I just hope we will soon find out and not let it drag on and on.

    Sharon replied

    Is it possible that Stefano stole the embryo from Abigail and needs EJ’s blood to keep it alive? Just a thought. I always believed she was pregnant and all of a sudden she isn’t. I look for something like this in the future to come about. A son she didn’t know she had or someone had for her.

    HOLY SHOOT! ! I’m so upset with NBC for not paying what their actors are worth it. Specially their ( numero uno) #1 couple EJ and Sammy. I hope the management , and writers will not screw up this time. I hope they will not allow EJ and Sammy to leave Day of Our Lives due to matters of money disputes like always. Because, if they leave I will quit watch the NBC channel. Yes! My husband and I we did quit watching NBC late night show when Jay Lennon left. Regardless of our Canadian kid Jimmy Fallon being a great entertainer . He doesn’t do for us – the old folks followers and lovers of Jay Lennon. Therefore, we quit watching late night show. Now, I’m facing another challenge choice.This time is weather I stay with NBC or forget the channel for many years. (thanks to Netflix) If EJ and Sammy leave I will leave too. It about time to tell NBC “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH NBC” . I will quit watching the channel once for all. “FOR MANY YEARS”.

    James Scott and Alison Sweeney gave tremendous performances in those scenes. I so hoped the door would be left open for EJ’s return someday. Of course, this is a soap and the trigger man was on EJ’s payroll. I’ve really grown to love EJ and Sami in the months I’ve watched Days.

    I wish James Scott all the best in the future.

    I completely agree. They should have left an opening for EJ to return. I’m soooooo ticked off!!! I already left a comment of NBC. You should do the same- everyone. Let them know how upset we are!!

    yeah but hope is getting involved with that new dude who is so not her equal aiden

    I never took to Abbi….not so attractive….contrary to public opinion. I will never like this character.she is pointless.

    Paul replied

    I loathe the character of Abigail; even more so when they call her Abs. Utterly ridiculous given her track record how the story was played off that EJ manipulated or seduced her. I have now taken to officially fast forwarding every scene between her & Ben.

    CeeCee replied

    If you were familiar with jimh’s writing, you would sing a different tune…jimh is a sweetheart !!!!

    lucy replied

    I know, i know but if i could never heard her name in relation with Ej and Sami again, it would be GOOD. lol.

    Carrie P replied

    Omg hahaha that comment made me laugh but you are so right!!! I love when they age the kids on soaps from 5 to 25 years old yet the parents still remain 30 something’s! Take Carly and Sonny on GH for instance! Michael was shot around age 12 was in a coma then came back as a man! Hope I look that good when I wake up one day and my kids are in their 20′s! lol

    CeeCee replied

    Weird and funny, right, Carrie? Technically, Will was born before EJ, wasn’t he?

    Carrie P replied

    Yes CeeCee he definitely was! Will was born in 1995 2 years before crazy Susan had EJ but now Will is 22 and EJ is supposedly almost 40! So Will literally stopped aging for 20 years! lol

    CeeCee replied

    I am glad someone other than myself gets Jimh dry humor, Carrie. He cracks me up.

    You are so right, robert. I cried so much….what a performance from both….and what a way to go! Not what I had imagined. I never thought TPTB would kill EJ off.
    I doubt he’s really dead…something’s up.

    Angel replied

    I cried too – not just because EJ died, but because James Scott is
    leaving. I do think he’s faking his death & that he & Sami get out
    of Salem. From what I understand, the children have been written
    out of the show as well, so it would make sense for the whole
    family to leave town. They discussed leaving a few weeks ago.
    Does anyone know if Alison Sweeney is being replaced? I heard
    that Anne-Judson Yager will replace her. She looks exactly like
    her!! But….then I heard that Alison Sweeney promised to come
    back for holidays & such. How could she do that if another actress
    has her part?

    Elsa replied

    Yep the girl you talked about, looks like Ali Sweeney, however she will not replace her..i don’t think and i admit hope they will never do that..Ali Sweeney as Sami just left a too much important impact on this soap, looks doesn’t make everything.

    CeeCee replied

    You’re right Elsa. (BTW, my little nieces would love your name…’Frozen’) Sweeney cannot be replaced. It would be like replacing Erica Kane or Victoria Lord, or Victor Newman, or…..LOL. You get my drift…..

    mari replied

    yep. I cried too. WTF is wrong with these soaps? Why do they get rid of their best people???

    Carrie P replied

    Agreed! I dont think she could EVER be replaced and someone new be welcomed by long time fans especially after portraying the same character for 22 years (that is more than half her life) how many actors can say that at age 38? Plus NOONE could EVER do that character justice or even come remotely close to imitating her attitude! I have always loved her character and how she could go from good, bad, ugly, conniving, back stabbing, bi*chy and sweet (and sometimes all of them in one episode) lol I will definitely miss the scenes between her and Lauren Koslow (Kate) there was NEVER a dull moment between those two! :)

  9. Suz says:

    It was very campy to watch. I laughed a lot. The only one who made me sad was that old hypocrite Stefano. Definitely a fake death. Sami’s not in on it. I hope EJ uses this as his chance to get away from her for good and she from him. If there was ever a couple who do NOT deserve a HEA, this is the one. vThey are toxic.
    Like all Days departures, I expect to see one or both of them return eventually. I hope that ejami is never revisited. They were such a polarizing couple and did so much damage to Days’ viewer numbers. U’m sure the show will take a brief hit, but once former viewers realize that they’re actually gone, the numbers will go back up.

    Ann replied

    I agree. That is one pair that do not deserve a happy ending. Like you, I expect Ali Sweeney to return eventually while I’m not as sure about James Scott. Now that the show is rid of the toxic Ejami, I hope they will never revisit that sickness again.

    May EJAMI live on FOREVER !!!!!!!

    realitycheck replied

    Some bitter and delusional folks here..i see..lol
    Ej and Sami were the most popular couple on Days this last decade, face it..it is quite pathetic to trash them and deny it.

    Ann replied

    Wow, realitycheck, I didn’t attack any posters, didn’t call anyone else bitter or delusional, just expressed my opinion about fictional characters on a soap opera.

    Sweetjesus replied

    Than you for saying everything I was thinking.

    And Michael, I guess as per the comment above anyone that doesn’t do the group think Ejami crap is bitter and delusional. I hate how anyone that doesn’t like Ejami is labeled, ridiculed and bullied and you let the comments stay here.

    Carrie P replied

    There always has to be one “toxic” couple on a soap! If not, what would we have to talk about on threads like this? lol

    CeeCee replied

    There was so much talent to have been had by Ejami. This couple played its part to the hilt, AND to the very end. I never considered Ejami toxic….it’s called life-drama. And, at the risk of saying this ad nauseam, fiction does, in more cases than not, imitate reality.

    It is sad to see the couple go,so for those who are glad to be rid of the pair, that’s how YOU FEEL. You can’t help how you feel, I understand. It is your opinion and I gladly accept different views.
    But, please understand that those of us who are saddened by their departure are very disappointed. Sami, especially for me, had become a fixture in my daily routine.

    i believe that ej faked his death – smai does not know about it yet – i believe that later on she will receive word from ej & she leaves salem with the kids then they will get their happily ever after…………
    points to ponder:
    the emt’s didn’t even try to do cpr on ej – when he arrived at the hospital they took him directly to the morgue with out a doctor pronouncing him dead…..
    ej probably set everything up with miguel – he probably took the drug that slows the heart down so nobody can detect a heart beat…………….jmo

I’m still waiting for DOLL or GH to throw us a curve ball so we can finally say “wow I didn’t see that one coming!” lol

    Ann replied

    Same here. I am not sad to see the end to that so called love story. That is a joke, there was only obsession, not love. EJ was a good villain but they ruined him by putting him with Sami. He was so much better with Nicole.

    csaults replied

    I, too, loved EJ with Nicole. Sami was better with Lucas, or even Rafe.

    Malakies replied

    And the Agenda shipping shows its ugly head yet again. A True EJ FAN WOULD WANT A HEA FOR EJ and that person WAS SAMANTHA THE ONLY LOVE OF HIS LIFE.

    I am glad James Scott and Alison Sweeney left this dive of a show.

    Jamison rocked their scenes and I expect A HEA!! Thank you for supporting anyone but EJami for the last 8 years.

    juju replied

    He loves/loved Sami not Nicole, it is not hard to get.
    And Ej was so much more and layered than a basic ‘villain’.

    juju replied

    Actually Ej was ruined by superficial relationships like the Nicole one and the trashy out of nowhere ‘thing’ like the Abby nightmarish hook up one. On the other hand, his complex relationship with Sami Brady is one of the element who made his character so unique, who made him what he is..of course you have to ‘get’ the Ej’s character to understand it, i guess.

    Elsa replied

    So if Sami has to be with Lucas for some, obviously, Ej should be with Nicole although he never really loved Nicole, was quite a cartoon villain with her and Nicole’s real love (her words) is Eric Brady..ok..Fans of Ej doesn’t want him with his usual rebound Nicole, the same way Nicole’s fans doesn’t want her with the guy who always see her as second choice instead of her true love Eric..how sad and pathetic it would be..come on.

    CeeCee replied

    I can’t really argue with you, Ann. But, IMO, EJ brought that obsessive drama into Sami’s life….the passion, the sexuality that was so uniquely Ejami. That’s what makes the world go ’round in soapland, and ,sometimes, the universe.
    From the onset we felt the sexual tension between the two. And, inasmuch as I was never really a fan of EJ, he delivered.
    I doubt if the audience would have been treated to the same breathless chemistry with any other pairing.
    I did not watch when Sami was with Lucas, so I will not comment. But, I saw how Sami and Rafe interacted. I loved their pairing….Rafe was healthy ‘food’ for Sami…..however, her life was probably becoming too stagnant and sedate for her taste. It does happen, especially with someone as restless as Sami.
    I guess EJ brought the two most important ingredients to her life—-love and excitement…..a combination which is, in many cases, a rarity.

    Ann replied

    I agree, csaults, I enjoyed those couples, too.

    I wish I could have taken out my hankies, but soaps have ruin all death scenes for me, because most often they are not real— I have seen bodies in coffin, no heartbeats, explosion where no one could survive–only to learn the person faked their death, or a doubled had died, a random stranger was the body they found or it was all a dream– whatever, enough times to ever accept a soap death for what it appears to be.

    The fact it was EJ’s henchman, who supposedly turned on him, that pulled the trigger makes me suspicious—the fact the medical response team didn’t even try to help him is another. I think like others it was a set up, and eventually when Sami leaves town she will end up someplace and the minute she walks into her new home, EJ will be there and they will say “We did it” or something like that.

    If it doesn’t happen that way I be surprise– but even if they truly killed off the character, we all know what one writer did, another writer can undo, so if Days is on long enough I suspect EJ might come back from the dead, like his brother and father have done so many times in past.

    This is soap opera land. Fans are upset EJ is leaving Days to begin with. I don’t think the writers want viewers to turn off Days. Therefore I believe EJ is alive and there will be a happing ending when Sami leaves the show. Do they ride off into the sunset together?….I think yes, that the writers will do this for their fans.

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    I agree, Carol. A few posts back I had said that there was a reason for Susan’s sudden appearance.She specifically came to Salem to take her son away. But, I never thought she came to get him in a body bag. I was shocked. Now, the reason becomes clear.
    I doubt Sami knew or knows. The morgue scene does not suggest any knowledge that she knew….it was so real. I was really moved….then again, I easily get weepy…LOL.
    What about Stefano? He wasn’t fake crying for anybody’s benefit. I am assuming he believes his son is dead.

    I have been watching DAYS since it first aired in November of 1965. I don’t think EJ is dead. I think he faked it to throw Stefano and other enemies off the trail, and to get out of going to jail. We will see. Hopefully he will come get Sami and the kids and they will go to an island somewhere and live happily ever after. Great performance by Ali Sweeney. We will dearly miss her, and James Scott too.

    I think your wish will come true. He faked his death without Sami’s knowledge. Later, he will reappear, explain everything and take her and the kids away with him. Both actors filmed their final on air scenes together long before they filmed what we saw on Oct 10.

    So happy to see the actor receive the respect of a good exit storyline. I was saddened to hear both actors chose not to renew their contracts, and that James would follow Allison as she chose to leave. I am VERY happy that they gave him a great exit and not just a goofy hand wave as they left the show. James and Alison have put in MANY uninterrupted years at Days and never faltered in their contracts; Sad to see them go. CANT WAIT for the surprise day they decide to come back. Cause it always happens. Waited around 15 years for Stephen Nichols to return, hopefully James will be back!

    Just to change the subject for a minute – please check for spelling errors before you hit the send button – the English and spelling on some of the above comments are so poor that they are almost not readable – some of you sound/look like idiots.

    When I made a comment , many, many posts ago, I was blasted for correcting another poster’s grammar. I have learned not to do so again.
    Nonetheless, I must agree with you . There are a few pathetic sentence structures that defy the intellect. My pet peeve is subject/verb disagreement…you know?……when each is the subject and then a plural verb is used?……how about between you and I, instead of you and me…….the latter being grammatically correct.
    I could go on and on….I take pride in my mode of speaking and writing. I don’t mean to preach, but I find it so sad that the English language has been reduced to such a low, low standard.
    I really believe technology is the culprit. Children just do not read any more. And, let’s not forget that some educators have a problem with using correct grammar themselves. Unfortunately, it will only get worse,

    If you read the posts here, you will see that I am not the only one who didn’t like EJami. I hardly think that one post and 2 replies constitute “posting negativity over and over again.” I believe everyone is still entitled to their own opinion. We happen to have different opinions, that’s all. No need to attack posters and make this personal over fictional characters.

    I don’t understand why everyone hates Abby. Just like I could never understand why everyone loved Melanie. Every male on the show was in love with her at one time or another. She wasn’t even pretty. I was happy when she left. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion

    CeeCee replied

    Well, Sandy, Melanie was attractive, much more than Abbi, who ,IMO, has bovine features. However, you brought looks up, not I. Not her fault, is it? But, this has nothing to do with beauty or lack there-of. Sometimes a viewer develops an antipathy toward a character.
    I just don’t like her; it is what it is. I am sure Ms Kate could care less what I think. Who am I? No one, in the scheme of things.
    So, I have to like her because you do? With all due respect, I think not!

    EJ is not dead, but Sami thinks he is. This is what happened:

    EJ wanted his employee to shoot him in front of Clyde. He was shot with a drug that puts the body in a total coma position. He appears to be dead to everyone including Sami. His mother Susan is still in Salem and takes his body out of the country. She has ashes put in a urn and sent to Dirmera house. Sami will be shocked with this delivery, but eventually will discover EJ faked his death and this was a scheme, which he felt necessary to protect their family from Stefano.

    The week of October 20th. Sami has confirmation that EJ is alive. EJ asks his mother to visit Sami with the news. Sami will convince her family that she needs to leave Salem to protect herself and children from Stefano. Sami and the children will join EJ, who now lives in one of his homes in Europe.

    EJAMI will be re-united and be end-game!

    I agree. The shooting by EJ’s goon even shocked Clyde. Doesn’t add up that his goon would shoot him simply for punching Clyde.

    EJ was shot with a coma-inducing substance, I would think….Wow, only in soaps!
    We all knew that this couple would eventually make up and exit happily ever after.
    But, not this way. I honestly thought Clyde was a threat and Ejami and kids would be running from him. Never did I once think of this turn of events.
    I agree Sami will hear word that EJ is alive and she will go to him….wherever…London, maybe? Too obvious?

    Great performances by James Scott and Alison Sweeney. DOOL will not be the same again without their leading couple. James and Alison moved generations of viewers to empty boxes of tissues. EJ and Sami truly have chemistry, only they could have pulled it off and made it believable to viewers. I hope to see them return to DOOL and reclaim their role as DOOL Great Couple. Best wishes to both phenomenal actors and their endeavors.

I had hoped for a HEA for Ejami (and we may still get it ) but I was so spellbound by the acting of Ali & James and the fantastic writing of Melissa Salmons that I can’t imagine anything could top Friday’s episode. Not the Ejami ending I was hoping for, but totally worth watching and watching again. I bow to the greatness that is Jamison, especially when written by Melissa Salmons. #EjamiAlways

    I think its a fake death as well I think this because I bet you Ken Corday will be fighting to get them back he knows Ejami was his most popular couple and they the reason why his show remained on air. Even when ratings were not good they created who buzz for Days now they gone this show is going be very boring to watch.

    Well, i don’t know it is fake or not..what i know is this show/TPTB/writers have wasted Ej AND Sami on such an insipid character like scary looking Abby for their last year..That, was a serious disrespect to Ej, Sam the character but also their portrayers James Scott and Alison Sweeney and their fans..so death or not, they already did a number on Ej and Sami. I can’t be erased, sadly, we had to endure this nightmare for almost a year..A YEAR. Now, good luck to this soap with this type of mentality and writing moves..

    As for the performances, James Scott, Joe Mascolo were just great and heartbreaking but Ali Sweeney was outstanding..if the system was fair she should get her emmy with these scenes.

She was everything Melissa Salmon’s script deserved. These scenes are already firmly ensconced in my list of remarkable scenes, and Sami Brady DiMera, EJ DiMera, Alison Sweeney and James Scott will never leave my list of characters and actors I treasure. Godspeed to them all. And thanks for the wonderful memories.

    This episode had me in tears. They both did a phenomenal performance!!!! EJ showed his very human vulnerable side as he lay dying and talking to Sami.
    And Sami, wow, how incredibly believable she was. The love and the pain she was going thru. as she kept telling EJ to stay with her. I cried with her.
    I believe that as many years these two had been together (off and on), this particular story line really showed the intense love they had for each other. I never saw that before and it was beautiful.
    But I have to admit, as a long long long time Days fan I knew that when everyone started accepting Sami and EJ getting back together, and Sami and EJ were so loving toward each other and EJ swears he will never hurt her again and decided She was more important to him than all of his possessions and power, well…I had an idea that he wasn’t going to be around. But I hoped I was wrong.
    And I do NOT like the fact EJ is gone. I am hoping it was just a trick to catch the bad guys.
    And I did not know Alison planned on leaving! I have been watching since the 60′s and was on that emotional roller coaster that Sami Brady put everybody on.
    I hope they will reconsider. After all there are not many of the original cast.

    Days writers need to quit getting rid of our original cast! I almost stopped watching when some of the original cast were let go.I hung in there to give it a chance. I love when there are interesting story lines such as the crazy things Stefano would put people through. And Marlena possessed (many years ago) And at one point she was dead and the fans were in an uproar. She came back and all was well again. Or when you had us all fooled when you were killing off everyone in Salem. Good one. All the new people you bring in seem to be nothing more than bed hoppers!!!!!! Really???? Can you not think of anything new???? That gets pretty boring. You need to capture our full attention again and write something that has everyone talking about it the next day.
    But to let either one of these actors go will be a bad mistake.
    One idea would be to have Days fans write and submit a story line.
    It’s still iffy whether or not I will continue to watch. But if more originals go and the new ones spend their time sleeping around, then I will be forced to quit watching a show that I have watched (or listened to on a band wave radio at work) for 40 years. Days was a family tradition :) My grown daughters stopped watching when they got rid of characters they liked. But I have continued the tradition. Till when? I don’t know. Please do it right. And thank you for many years of making us a part of the Salem family. :)

    Seeing that this is Days and EJ is a DiMera it is not too far off to think the character will return from the dead since the body… although cold to the touch in the morgue… is just “sitting around” for Stefano to do his duties and either switch or drug the ‘alive’ EJ so that he can be whisked away.

    Somehow… and without any knowledge of how Sami leaves the show, I am thinking that in a couple of weeks when the character leaves it will be with her children boarding a plane for safety sake (it will be revealed she and her spawn are in danger from the Cylde who killed AJ). When the camera pans to inside the jet, who is sitting there with open arms but EJ saying to Sami “Now we can leave and secretly live the lives we want away from danger”.

    Shoot back to the airplane hangar as Stefano whispers “you are never to far from my reach. When I need you you will come back to me”

    You know what, Paul? You mentioned something that caught my attention.
    I can understand how one is able to look comatose with certain drugs, but how does a body become cold? Only in death, where the heart no longer pumps blood to the body and the brain, can that happen.
    Even in a comatose state, the human body retains its warmth, no?
    I find that completely bizarre. Am I missing something?

    I thought both James and Allison’s performances were both stellar! It always is dissapointing when favorite characters leave the show and in most cases even more disappointing when they “come back from the dead” years later and in most cases portrayed by different actors! In my opinion, EJ and Sammy are both irreplaceable (especially after Allison’s sucessful 22 year run) so I am hoping that the show will not try to replace either of them after her departure later this month. I am not glad that EJ was killed off but I am happy that there was an end to his story line instead of just having them walk off into the sunset like they did with Shawn Douglass and Belle only to never hear from or about them again! Allison’s amazing performance continues today (10/13) as well and I am glad the show is paying tribute to James Character with all of the Sammy and EJ “greatest moment” flashbacks! Allison definitely deserves a Daytime Emmy award! I have never seen better acting from her as I have the last few months! I’m sure her emotion is coming deep within knowing that she is leaving after spending more than half of her life on this set! I look forward to seeing where both James and Ali’s work will take them and I wish them both the best of luck in their future! Now I am just very anxious to see how Samny’s exit will play out! Thank You!

    Maybe I am being niave but I believed he really died – how could he stop his own heart from beating – and why, when they were alone in the fake leaf park, would he gasp for breath and try to tell Sami he loved her and the children – if the death were faked, why would they do that with no one around – they both acted up storms, did a great job. Of course it is a soap and anything is possible but for the most part, to my eyes, he was shot sort of by accident by the henchman. I most certainly could be wrong -

I loved these two together and if Allison doesn’t win an Emmy for these last few performances I would be shocked!!!!

I think that is what Kristin injected into EJs arm in hopes that they could reverse his death. You know these soap operas, people die and rise from the ashes later. Later if he returns they will say it was the same drug that was used on JOhn

    I have been a fan since this show aired in 1965-which makes me one of the oldest….In all these years there was one other character that broke my heart when he departed and that was “Patch” I am seriously “bummed” about EJ being killed off-he”s a great character and even without Sammi(we know she”s going) I had all kinds of other scenarios for him-with Abigail-hot hot hot as Susan Banks would say-oh please tell this old lady that the sexiest man on daytime is not off my one and only “Soap” -us long timers may be old but we”re not dead

    I hate this. I hate this. I think I will stop watching Days. I’ve been watching for several years but this was a very bad move. EJ was very very special to this show and it will never be any good without him WHY?????

    I am heartbroken for them both. I can not get it out of my head. You just expect to always see these two on this show forever together or apart. What an exit. It was really good!!

    Oh, my! Now what? Stefano has EJ’s body? What is going on?
    I don’t know about any of you, but I am completely at a loss. I missed half of
    the episode yesterday….did not record. I must have missed something dire
    pertaining to a possible Stefano link with the shooting?
    Is it really EJ’s body that is entering the creepy halls of the DiMera crypt?

    Well they ruined John and Marlena, then Bo and Hope,, and of course,, now EJ and Sami.. it was good acting.. I didnt realize that EJ was going to quit too.. I knew Sami was going, thought they would kill her off or something like that.. I wish they would get rid of Theresa and Clyde.. then things would be good.. I get tired of watching Theresa.. she is cheap stuff. but Stefano has Ej now.. so we shall see.

    I had hoped that the injection his sister gave him put his body in a live state until stephano’s odd chemists/doctors can bring him totally back to life with their potions. Of coarse Sami will have moved on with raff, just about to walk down the isle and EJ appears. Or maybe a new stranger in town for her to move on with. EJ is the Victor Newman of this show and his leaving will ruin everything.

    I have fingers crossed that they will keep EJ’s and Sammys characters …only with new actors. Is it possible the needle that Kristen gave EJ will somehow help Stephano to bring him back to life…only with a new actor..?

    This Days fan is happy EJ is dead and Sami will be off my screen soon. It is funny how some are calling people who do not like the nasty disgusting rapemance of Ejami dellusional. Not everyone is into a rapist being with his victim or an attempted murderer being with her victim. Fiction or not, it is a lot to accept that a woman will fall in love with her rapist. And please the comparison to Luke and Laura is a joke. Luke and Laura never did half the things to each other EJ and Sami did. The actors also chose to leave so it seems silly to blame Days for their departure. I wish them the best but I am happy I no longer have to wade thru the BS of abuse some called love to watch other characters are do enjoy. Also all these people calling Kate Mansi/Abby ugly need to post a picture of themself. lol I am sure they only wish they looked as gorgeous as Ms. Mansi. No doubt these are the people James Scott called fucking idiots in his interview. Why attack an actress just because you don’t like her character. How ridiculous.

    I can’t believe EJ and Sami are leaving. The show might as well be over if that’s the plan. Without them the show loses focus. There are not characters or plots strong enough to keep the show alive. This was a bad plan by the director and the team of Days to let the go. too Bad…”Days ” was one of the last soaps. If I were the producers I would do everything to get Sami and EJ back.

    want to see E.J. come back (james scott) not a replacement. He was the hit of the show. Get rid of Will and Sonny but bring E.J back. Stephano can do anything so let him rest awhile and the payhim to come back.

    This has been really a very good ending for EJ and Sammy. I think Sammy did one of the best jobs ever. I have been watching Days since the late 70 but now that all this is happening I probably will not watch it ever again. There are some people on this show that really should not be on it becaue of the drugs. Thanks for the many years of watching Days Of Our Lives.

    I will not watch Days anymore if he is truly a dead character, he and Sami belong together. The show gas taken so many horrible changes that the only thing holdin my family’s attention was the Sami and EJ love. It was bad enough they change the faces of characters we’ve grown accustomed to. I used to feel Salem was my extended family. PLEASE PROVE HE ANS SAMI ARE LIVING TOGETHER AWAY FROM SALEM AS HE ONCE PROMISED HER SO THEY WOULD BE SAFE AND PROTECT I ache inside at his exiting the show.

    It is always a big letdown when a replacement is put in place of a character change. We grow accustomed to the face and acting style. I’ve watched for 25+ years and stopped watching periodically when a substitute was put in place of a character we grew to accept and love…NO MORE DOING THAT PLEASE.

    To the fans who said Days viewers would go up when Ejami left I hope some of you are still here what a joke.

    Have any of you seen the ratings since Ali and James left?

    Dreadful everything they some 300,000 viewers down from last year and the Demos are really bad so show has got worse not better lol. No one can replace Ali and James they made the show interesting to watch they gave it huge buzz the actors that are on now in their place is like watching paint dry so dull the lot of them.

    I have been a Days freak for 37+ years now… That I stuck around with the pitiful Marlena possessed; then hung in there as you killed everyone off, still baffles me…
    Rid of EJ and Sami?!
    I am still sickened by this decision.
    Here, I had pictured them growing old together; being the next power couple to grace DAYS since Tom and Alice.
    And yes, you already effed up John and Marlena to fill that spot… (And with John being too much of a stuffed shirt to even appeal anymore, especially to those of us his own age).

    So, what to do? Do everything in your power to buy them back.
    Then hold onto them both.

    Well I unfortunately didn’t get to see the last 2 weeks of Days with E J & Sami and I am sad. I have been a Days fan since I was 11 and now 46. I literally grey up with Sami. I loved the story kind between the 2 . The ups and downs and still loving each other. I stopped watching it. NOT THE SAME!
