81 February 4th, 2013 EJami Alert! DAYS Sami Makes Her Choice & It Isn’t Rafe! – Watch The Preview!

Courtesy/NBC

After years of on and off again liaisons under shall we say, not the best circumstances, Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) has chosen her man and this time it’s EJ DiMera (James Scott) who gets the nod!  Looks like the Nick and Gabi wedding was the device for the writers to make Sami and Rafe (Galen Gering) come apart at the seams!

On this week’s NBC promo, after Sami decides that EJ is her man, she runs-in to Rafe.  So just how does she tell him of her decision? And what is his response?   It’s a classic soap “snot-off”!

So soapers, what do you think of the way the writers finally have split up Rafe and Sami? Are you thrilled that the EJ and Sami can have a chance at building a family and a life together?  Or, do you think this is will only end up being temporary?

Watch this week’s promo of Days of our Lives after the jump and weigh-in!

    S-A-WEEEEET!!!

    This better stick…..for a few months anyway. The show has to start giving people what they want if they want the show to continue to prosper. They can’t keep dangling the bait. EJami fans are RABID and will come in droves to watch…..and I am not one to think that any one couple or character can boost ratings. It made no sense to go the Safe route, with considerably less fans (IMO), less media and interest buzz and general interest, in such a precarious time. They NEEDED to go for this once and for all, now more than ever!

    I can’t wait to see what happens with EJami now that they’re together. Their scenes last week were so swoon worthy! “In hopes of you”…..I mean, that’s the stuff good soaps are made of. Super excited for DAYS these days!!!

    I agree 100%. I am the happiest person alive. EJAMI just sparkle together and I cant wait to see how they will flourish together and take on the Brady and Dimera clans.
    EJ and Sami were very honest with one another and Im so happy that there is no lying and manipulation from both sides this time. GO EJAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was waiting all weekend for this topic to come up. So ready to read all the comments on this one. Fans reaction to the choice will almost be as entertaining as the show. Now that she has made a choice I hope it sticks for a while- I find triangles that constantly go back and forth almost daily to be tedious- just like on B&B. So if the writers can write a good story line with Ejami- then I’m in. But just let me get out the way- because the fur is going fly when Ejami and Safe fans face off on this turn of events.

    It’s about friggin’ time she makes a decision! Hopefully Days will let them play for awhile before bringing in some 3rd party or putting Rafe back in the picture again. At least all three are enjoyable to watch though unlike the hot mess of Daniel/Jen/Chloe FFWD boredom.

    I don’t mind the Chloe/Jen/Dan triangle but I have the perfect idea for it to get better. Chloe should work with Kristen as she can help her with Brady and Kristen could have her brother Peter Blake come back to try and break up Jen and Dan so Chloe can have him all to herself.

    Ooooh, I’d love to see Jason Brooks back on the show but I don’t think Scott Reeves would allow that ;) Chloe can have Daniel for all I care.

  5. Brian Tripp says:

    Thank you. Now the EJAMI fans can be quiet for awhile. I don’t care either way but I just want Sami to be with one person for a change. Let Rafe find a new love interest. Bring Stephanie back a few years older or maybe Sarah Horton and put them with Rafe.

    me too!! That was cut short and needs to be revisited. Maybe Austin got lost somewhere in an avalanche. lol..

    Avelina comes from Santorini Greece replied

    I loved CAFE as well. They had a sparkle to them and had great chemistry

    Patrick replied

    you know… without “all the baggage”… of Sammi and EJ or Rafe….

    Rafe and Carrie….were chemistry…. were cute…. were shy playful…. had that understood inherent “Love”…. oh “damm”….

    they made you happy.

    ces replied

    I agree Patrick! Playful and no heaviness that he had with Sami. I like Rafe when he’s happy and Carrie made him happy :) Now, if only TPTB would listen!

    ABOUT TIME!!!!! I’ve wanted EJ and Sami to get together forever. They’ve never really been together. I hope we have some happy time before soap opera intrudes.

    Please let Sami and EJ stay together for a good while. Find stories that they can go through together and, even if it tests their union, let them try to work in out before jumping into bed with someone else or running back to a lost love. There is much mischief and adventure, not to mention the mundane challenges of parenting, these two can do. I never found Sami and Rafe particularly appealing for the long term. Let me see some romance and a solid marriage, and some sexiness, misunderstandings, a little comedy, some intrigue… all that is befitting a soap super couple. And let it ride!

    Sami shouldnt be with E.J.(even if they had kids), and luv each other. Brady is an idiot for bein with Kristen and so is Sami for being with E.J. E.J. and Kristen are evil and of a history in Salem for the notorius things they’ve done, and it doesnt look like theyll ever change for the better: they’ll always be Dimeras. As soon as Rafe and Hope become a couple, i predict, then Sami will probably want him back. She changes men faster than i can change my shorts(kidding,lol)!

    jim replied

    maybe im wrong. sami and e.j. do deserve each other knowing neither one is a saint for all the wrong things they have done in the past. rafe is at least a good guy who hasnt done anything evil like E.J. but sometimes he’s seems a little wimpy because if he truly had loved Sami, he wouldnt have so easily let her go without a fight.

    Mary SF replied

    I was getting that vibe too- that they might want to pair Hope with Rafe. Now if that happened would their mashed up name be Rope or Hafe? I never could figure out how that works.

    Hate EJami. Sami belongs with Lucas. I hope Rafe is with Nicole, not Hope. But he has sex with Kate next week. Yuck!

    Mary SF replied

    Omg- missed that spoiler. Thanks for the heads up- I will remember to have my blindfold ready for those scenes- Rafe and Kate???? Did not see that one coming. Yuck is right- and ewwwww. But if he wanted to stick it to Sami for choosing EJ I guess that is the best way to do it, I just don’t want that mental image stuck in my brain.

    cr replied

    I agree with dmitri about not putting rafe with hope or him having sex with kate. Putting him in love triangle with nicole and eric would be interesting.

    Dmitri replied

    Mary, the spoiler was just released today by someone who works at TVguidemagazine. It is horrible! But at least it will make Sami go nuts!

    Dmitri replied

    Cr, I agree, Nicole and Eric can work for a while, but I think her and Rafe would be a better couple

    Avelina comes from Santorini Greece replied

    Are you sure its Kate? I thought that the spoiler just said woman and didnt actually specify who? Can you imagine Sami? She will go nuts. Her and Kate are enemies and this is classic soap stories which I like.

    Dmitri replied

    Avelina, I just read the spoilers today and it is indeed Kate. Her and Rafe both get upset and commiserate in the bar, leading to grief sex between the two.

    Avelina comes from Santorini Greece replied

    Thanks Dmitri. I just read the spoiler. That is disgusting. Kate is too old for Rafe and when Sami finds out she will go nuts LOL. Another grief sex episode but Im interested to see the fall out.

    EJAMI is the only tool can save the show DAYS. Cannot believe took 6 years the producers and writers to figured that out. I have always wondered the real reason or logic behind. Why they try so hard to keep them apart and against the majority of viewers?? They just cannot be that dumb!!!

    Finally Ejami. I love that Sami is the one initiating and propelling this romance forward. I love that Ej is struggling to trust in it and yet he gives in to it. It is about time. Good for Days’ writers.

    I never understood that Rafe commanded as much affection as he did from Sami even when Lucas and Ej were in the picture.

  15. Ann says:

    What I want Days to do is figure out a way to bring Brant Daugherty back once he wraps shooting Army Wives and actually develop his character to be a real love interest for Sonny. I’m so disappointed they immediately make him the bad guy just to eventually reunite Will and Sonny. So typical. Brant and Freddie have undeniable chemistry and are gorgeous together. I am keeping my fingers crossed that Days will bring him back later this year and have him stick around for awhile.

    I thought Rafe was a little older than 4 or 5. He’s acting like a spoiled little brat! Good choice, Sami!

  17. Dmitri says:

    Sami didn’t “choose” anyone! She settled for EJ because Rafe was done with Sami. This is disgusting, most people are repulsed by EJami, as evidenced on Daytime Royalty, Salem Spectator and other sites. Just because the fanbase is vocal doesn’t mean that it’s big, and this is the case. The ratings have gone back down after the wedding, and this is why. So tired of the Sami show.

    Excuse me as your head been stuck in sand; we see brady , jen, daniel , kristien, and nicole just as much as we see sami. I watch the show all week and played jen a whole lot and they only lost forty thousand and rating was still 2.1.

    Yes, and I am tired of seeing those characters as well! Bring back the vets! And the ratings were 2.1 for the wedding, since then they dropped!

    It was on SoapsSheKnows, saying: Sami makes love with one of her exes (we now know it’s EJ), but is the other one (most likely Rafe) truly out of the picture?

  19. calie says:

    I am thrilled they are going to let Sweeney and Scott explore the sides of their characters that work as a romantic couple and team. So we go back to Safe and we find ourselves back to Ejami or maybe Lumi. Writers have not ever let Ej and Sami be in the same moment at the same time. As a fan I am ready for it- even though it looks at moments that Ej wants to run as fast as he can from Sami. Fidelity is not Ej’s strong point.

  22. RJ4 says:

    Glad they finally are giving EJ and Sami a chance. I know they have a terrible history, but they are entertaining, lively, and fun to watch, so I hope they let the relationship play out (for a while any way) without breaking them up. They make you want to tune in, and see what is going to happen in their relationship. AS/JS have good chemistry and are good together, so I hope they do not break this relationship up too fast, but let it keep sizzling…. Will be interesting to see how the ratings are as I suppose that will determine how long they will keep them a couple. As for me, I will be tuning in to watch them to see how their relationship develops, they can have lots of entertaining storylines together, and please no more triangles with EJ/Sami/Rafe, etc…… They can pair Rafe with someone else who will add spark and pizazz to his life as well. This could be a good turning point for the show to move in a new direction, and add some spice to it!

    The writers need to leave Sami with E.J and do not put back with rafe in spring, days writers listen loud in clear we are tired of sami hopping between 2 or 3 men. Leave her with one, I like her with rafe , but I wrote her has single mother and business woman.

    why does sami really need to be paired with anyone at the moment. it would have been far more interesting showing a single mother raising four children alone and then maybe six months later have her fall in love again with e.j., rafe, and lucas.

    I’m no fan of EJami, but if they bring in viewers & ratings, so much the better. I just wish Corday & Sony would find writers OTHER than TomSell. Then give us some good character-driven, umbrella type storylines that take YEARS to tell. They also need to utilize the veterans of the cast more than they do – bringing on newbies or characters that haven’t been on the canvas in years is fine, but for newer viewers, there needs to be a get-to-know-the-character period of time before they’re on the front-burner. I get that the actors & actresses are doing their jobs, but unless the writing team changes to people who know the history of the show, know the characters and most importantly, respect those two elements as well as the viewers, the ratings boost that EJami brought will be short-lived at best.

    I wonder what the status is with Stefano….? coming back to Salem full-time?

    Let’s get the DiMera’s back in the Manse. and get Kate home….

    it’s such high brow cast and talent….

    stefano/kate

    Kristen
    EJ and Sammi
    chad

    Therein Lies the mystery and intrigue…. w/Sammi living at the DiMera’s….

    The first family of Salem….. what can any one say? The Hortons and Bradys’ are limited… and that’s a shame.

    I’ll be saying this umpteenth times…. but… the only way to get Hope and Jenn out of the supercouple mode… and move them forward… upwards and onward…. is Peter Blake…. “Jason Brooks”…. simmering sensuality….. Sparks….

    ———————–

    Sammi…… (?) she’s carried DAYS… I applaud that…. Finally, ( i agree with Mary SF)… SO MUCH, TOO MUCH, FLIP FLOPPING…. TRIANGLE…. with steadfast fans… wanting either EJ or Rafe…. and Rafe’s (your opinion) bland acting…. has made this triage too long…..

    Watching Sammi… w/Rafe… she IMO seems more in love… like a woman…. more confident.

    EJ’s power and machinations makes his pairing w/Sammi…. Ms. DAYS…. more intriguing…. alluring…. and yeah they do have STEAM…

    ——————-

    sometimes these post seems repetitive… but… what’s a fan to do, but cheer on one’s favs.

    I hope Rafe finds some one….OYE! Dmitri…. w/Kate? Please!!!! No! i’ve been kinda watching if Rafe and Hope have any thing? I think they should go back to Rafe and Nicole…. till Eric comes too….. LOL…. by then Chloe will be over Daniel….

    by then…. Rafe, Nicole, Eric, Chloe will be the 4-some…. heck… throw in Lucas.

    ——————————-

    Blake Berris’ chilling performance is knocking me out! he’s more than a supporting act to Will and Sonny… this is his story.

    Mary SF replied

    There are plenty of Bradys and Hortons MIA that if the writers were willing could bring back to town and write story line for. Where is Roman- he hasn’t had a story line in years? What happened to Kayla’s romance with Abe? Where’s Jack Jr. Didn’t Kim and Shane have children- did they ever come back to Salem? Wasn’t Max supposed to be coming back?

    Roots keep a plant strong and healthy- on a soap their root system is their history. There is so much history to this show- if writers would only mined it for the treasures buried there.

    Patrick replied

    1. I so WISH Fay (Nicole’s Mother) was still alive…. she would be perfect for a triangle with Roman and Abe…. and throw in Kayla….. PERFECTION. and if Stefano isn’t coming back… add in Kate…

    2. Kimberly has always struck an emotional cord with me…. let’s have her and Shane in trouble…. Shane could get mixed up with Hope! that would rock Salem and the Bradys to no end… or Shane with Kristen… some one closer to Kristens age.

    3. i recall the rumour mill about Kayla and Abe… I really think these two have potential…. Kayla is such a delight.

    —————–

    ie: it seems like GH’s budget is loaded with cashola…. DAYS team needs to revitalize and re-organize….. get with it DOOL…. if Sammi and EJ work…. then so be it… I swear… hiring Christie Clark would solve all the drama with Rafe… and give Marlena and Sammi some family drama as well….. Carrie Brady needs to come home.

    Dmitri replied

    I agree. While I’d be fine with a Safe reunion, and I LOATHE EJami, I really want Rafe paired with Nicole. Her and Eric don’t seem like they’d be an interesting couple.

    Reply

    Patrick replied

    if Carrie isn’t on DAYS….. Nicole is the one that completes Rafe…. He responds and acts more naturally with Nicole then Sammi. So, it’s not farfetched to see how easily Rafe and Nicole could be paired up.

    Geez! OOH LA LA… these DAYS….

    it’s a lil sinful peering in to DrOOL… EJ and Sami
    Brady and Kristen

    Heck…. let’s go Rafe and Nicole…

    smoldering….

    I think James Scott is doing a great job happy one minute and worried the next.

    I will never say no to Lucas and Sami- they will always work but right now Ejami makes it more interesting. Rafe needs to find his soulmate and it is not Sami.
