On Sunday night, HBO’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver had a very special surprise for for 16-year old wheelchair bound Syrian refugee Noujain Mustaffa and Days of our Lives fans.
Noujain is the young teenage girl we told you about earlier last week, who was trying to get to Germany and seek asylum. When ABC News first brought the young girl’s plight to the forefront, they asked Noujain how she learned to speak English. She said by watching Days of our Lives, and in particular the struggles of Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott). She also related she was upset that her favorite character (EJ) was killed off the show!
But for one night only, EJami was reunited thanks to the efforts of Oliver and his production team who hoped to shed light on the struggles of the migrants and refugees in Europe, and wanting to do something for Noujain. So, after a hilarious recap of what led up to the “death” of EJ DiMera, Oliver threw to a clip which featured Alison Sweeney and James Scott playing out a sort of EJami reunion with a shout out to Noujain as only EJ can!
James Scott took to Twitter following the airing of the broadcast saying: “Thank you
#LastWeekTonight and #Ali_Sweeney and #Noujainfor one last Dimera dance!” He then followed it up with a hashtag in a new tweet, #ejamiaintover Alison Sweeney added on Twitter: ” So glad to give Noujain her HEA and bring attention to her story. #Days50″
Watch the entire segment after the jump, which includes the set up from John Oliver featuring James and Alison as EJ and Sami after the jump! Then let us know what you think of Alison and James coming on board to do this segment with a nod to Noujain and her story? Do you hope to see EJami back on DAYS in the future? Comment below!
