    So sensitive of Days to feature a violent sex scene between a heroine and the character who once raped her.
    Really, I get why TPTB like that pairing in theory (chemistry etc.) but they do everything in their power to make it repulsive to anyonre with a minimum of decency.

    No more no less sensitive than Days trying to sell a love story between Nicole and the man who once tried to strangle her to death. I don’t see anyone getting up in arms about that aspect of the EJole pairing in the last few months. Hypocritical much? And besides, you want to judge soap characters and pairings based on real life standards of morals and ethics when these characters never really pay for their crimes anyway? Really?

    Just because they did it elsewhere doesn’t make it right this time. Obnoxious much? Ignorant much?

    Riririri replied

    In any case and no matter how someone wants to interpret what happened between EJ and Sami some centuries ago, it was never violent.

    iTSJUSTASOAP replied

    There was never morality based in soaps..and if you sit there and judge dont watch.. EJ and Sami were never a normal couple and Sami was never ever a herione go look up her past…..that is what makes them tick..and for EJAMI fans wanting more..

    nhuixnhuix, Sami ISN’T a heroine, even during the previous writing regime, heroine’s do not attempt murder on a defenseless man and then stand by and watch her boyfriend throw away his ethics, his job and his sister nor do they put their welfare above the welfare of their son.
    Sami and EJ are and always have been a volitile couple, it’s who they are. Their passions run deep from hate and yes, to love. We won’t get the love right away, but I’m tuning in hoping we’ll get it eventually.

    EJami brings so much emotion and raw intensity to every sense they are in! I am so looking forward to watching this!!!! Loved it and cannot wait to see more EJami scenes. Thank you. I am glad that Days realizes what potential this pairing has and can bring to their show. It is endless!!!!

    FINALLY!!! I was wondering when this reset was finally going to get some new life breathed into it. Whether you’re a fan of EJ and Sami or not, the repercussions of that kiss will affect so many characters and will definitely stir the pot. This is precisely what a good soap should do. Drama, drama, DRAMA!!! That’s what the viewers need and crave. And what better way than to involve two characters who’ve been dancing around each other for the past 5 years. It’s so wrong but oh so right!

    It is also a great opportunity to bring EMMY worthy character Sami Brady on our screens. Were did our favourite villain go? She is much older now and she has kids so I would not expect her to be her immature conniving self. But Sami was never a damsel in distress. She was a strong woman and no one messed with her! I want that character back :)

    I’m very excited to see all of this very soapy drama unfold between EJ & Sami – more excited than I’ve been about Days in far too long.

    James and Alison are sure to provide us with an outstanding, Emmy-worthy performance during the outpouring of emotion that will characterize their upcoming scenes. I know that I will be riveted to the screen and hoping for more interaction between EJ & Sami as the story continues.

    I loved the weekly preview! I’ve watched it 5 times already. It’s great to see Ali Sweeney and James Scott get back into their element. They are great at doing the raw and emotionally charged scenes! As for Sami and EJ’s characters, just from that quick hint in the weekly preview, they seeme to blame themselves as much as they do each other for Johnny being missing. I’m excited to see how it all develops! It’s raw, juicy Days!

    EJAMI are the best ever. I love them and I have tuned out for the past few years due to the boring as paint SAFE and the terrible EJOLE. But I cant wait for this and I cant wait to see the ratings go up because of it. EJAMI= Ratings GOLD

    Teresa replied

    LMAO .. Good luck with that. Ejami have not brought ratings in years no matter how many times they Screw, Rape, have raped, Steal eachothers child, or destroy eachother.
    They DO have chemistry,, But its always used badly.
    Marlena and Stephano have chemistry too, But writers dont write rediculous stories to destroy them.. Its not even about Safe .. break rthem up, keep them .. whatever… But this garbage wont bring ratings.. Just a few 100 die hard ejami’s
    Only GOOD writers and stories improve ratings and we STILL dont have that.

    Horrible thing to say about EJAMI’s. There are thousands of EJAMI fans. They have MAJOR chemistry even more than the god-awful EJOLE and SAFE, even some friends of mine are SAFE fans. Though I will agree with you that their chemistry is used badly ALL the time and the current terrible writing is really impacting on the show.

    the truth replied

    Ejole and Safe has brought even LESS in term of ratings..you are so not credible..

    Anonymity replied

    Will people PLEASE stop saying that EJami=ratings gold. You don’t know that. Quite the contrary, they haven’t increased the ratings before, so why would they now? A couple doesn’t make/break the show! EJami is no exception. Yes, many viewers like them, but there’s a great deal of hatred for this non couple too. Hello? Moreover, everyone have their faves (couples, characters , storylines) & have different reasons for tuning into the show. So it incredibly irritates me when people claim EJami=ratings gold or ratings lead, when they have no proof to back that up. And, with all due respect, if there’s no evidence to prove such a statement-when it turns out to be wrong, you’ll end up looking like a fool.

    I like EJ & Sami because they’re entertaining, complex, unique….It’s a shame never capitalized on their amazing potential.

    However, I might be in the minority here, but I really doubt that EJ & Sami will EVER become a couple. The fact that EJ not only framed John, but also that those actions led to endangering their children once again-does NOT bode well. Sami hasn’t even forgiven EJ for the Sydnapping yet-let alone what he’s done to her since then (taking the children, the 2 rafes debacle, etc).

    Moreover, they come together out of GRIEF, not LOVE. And I doubt Sami’s going to suddenly fall in love with EJ, after everything he’s done to her & definitely not when she finds out about his latest shenanigans.

    No, I don’t think this is about EJami at all. This is to lay the ground work for Will’s coming out storyline & for Sami to come full circle with her past. There’ll be A LOT of drama for all the players involved (which is why tptb chose it to be EJ Sami sleeps with) & Safe will probably temporarily seperate, only to come out stronger than ever (yuck).

    Once again the EJamis will be getting crumbs. Sorry to be a downer, but it is a realistic & strong possibility.

    God, I hope I’m wrong about this.

    Ther are RATINGS GOLD. SAFE and EJOLE have completely brought the ratings down. However, I agree with you that EJAMi are complex and so entertaining and also about the fact that it will lead NO WHERE.

    Well I haven’t been excited like this in well I don’t actually remember when, it’s been so long where I would be counting down the hours to watch another episode of Days!! This promo brought back all of those feelings of anticipation to watch the show!! James and Alison have amazing onscreen chemistry, this little sneakpeak just rocked me to my core it was so UNBELIVEABLY RAW!! I am in awe of these two, they bring so much to ourscreens, evoke so much emotion. I am sitting on the edge of my seat for this weeks scenes, I just know it is gonna be REAL good!!

    Reduculus that The Idiopts that be never learn. Most Ejami’s hate A.S and Love J.S.. All this does is priovide tittilationfor them, destruction for Sami, and its a sad .. sad thing.. We were promiused “Romance” . And excitement.. This borders on Sado masochistic.. And if Ejami’s think this will lead to a happy ever after it wont .. But I dont think they care, nor do they care if Sami si destroyed.. They Want teenage Sami and wont accept her as marturing.. They Hate Safe and will risk losing DOOL to destroy Safe.. Frankly the PTB could have broken SAafe without doing this.. Nor have they delivered on ***ANY*** Story.. So I excpect to hear of their cancelation very soon.. I know I wont be watching this crapfest. Mostly because I HATE being lied to.. And DOOL viewes have been Duped.

    LOVE THIS PROMO!

    I’m so excited to have something else to watch on Days besides just Matthew Ashford’s amazing performances. I love that Sami isn’t going on blind faith anymore. She seems to be the only Brady thinking logically these days, and it’s about time. Smart Sami is back. Acceptance without question doesn’t equal maturity. Submission to the pressures and expectations of your family, to the point where you’re still going against your natural instinct and better judgement well into your thirties does not equal maturity. In fact, it means the opposite. Sami was not comfortable bringing her kids to see a man who’s been the recipient of death threats and prison beatings, but her family pushed her to do it. Sami did it because she’s been pod-Sami for the past couple of years, doing whatever she needs to do to ingratiate herself to her parents and her husband (who treats her more like a daughter than his wife).

    Sami is finally maturing. She’s finally wising up to the fact that she’s a mother who knows better than anyone what’s best for her children, and for her peace of mind, and I’m thrilled we’re finally going to be getting a taste of it.

    As for EJ and Sami – YES!! FINALLY!! Whatever comes of these scenes, I’m bracing myself for it. James and Alison are going to chew these scenes up and spit them out, and I, for one, am going to lap up every second of it.

    I’m THRILLED that we may have a chance at Ejami. But that’s not the only story that I’m drooling over. I’m interested in the Dimera/Alice connection as well as the Jack, Jen and Dr. Dan story. It’s been looking like there may be a Chad, Abbie and Mel story going on.

    The thing is, is that there are Lots more going on and involving all the characters. Story content. That is what will make or break the show.

    I can hardly wait for the EJ and Sami scenes!

    don’t worry people who know what is chemistry SEE IT. it is maybe one of the couple actors strongest on-screen chemistry i have ever seen on my screen..to know that writers NEVER really use it to write good stories is a freaking shame..no wonder soaps are dying..

    lew replied

    Hello, I now what chemistry is and I don’t see it with those two. Sami is great with Rafe and EJ and Nicole bring the heat. Sami has come too far to fall back into old habits. The soaps are failing, because no one seems to learn from their past mistakes and stories are replayed over and over. If they are your favorite couple, then that’s cool and you are probably not alone. But I am surprised by this move and if Sami becomes pregnant by EJ again, I will be through with this show.

    the truth replied

    Ej and Nicole bring NOTHING imo and Sami and Rafe barf..can’t even comment about this horror..but of course to each his own, as for the characters growing..hello of course they do but they don’t need some contrived and fake makeover and have to keep the flaws which in the first place made them complex and interesting..you want to watch Caroline and Charles Ingalls well watch but you will be the only one (and at least Michael Landon was far more talented than the guy playing Rafe..don’t know his name)

    Avelina replied

    I agree with “the truth” EJOLE are soooooooooooo boring that I feel like ripping my hair out and SAFE are to barf. I would rather scratch my nails on a blackboard than watch those terrible couples. Many people are through with this show due to the current couples and we will see who brings in the ratings come November 18. Goodbye EJOLE and Hello lovely EJAMI.

  27. Nancy Rodriquez says:

    I think if Sami and EJ get involved, Rafe will end up with Carrie. Or perhaps Sami will get pregnant with Ej’s kid again, and pass it off as Rafe’s, or surprisingly confess. I hate seeing Sami back with EJ, but I think it may be a fling because they are upset. I also think that someone Will may have made angry, over the website gamling thing, may be behind it all.

    Finally something INTERESTING and EXITING !! Otherwise this soap seems a snoozefest, i don’t watch anymore but if they reunite Ej and Sami played by these actors and finally write a story FOR them and not AGAINST them or waste them with some other dull and irelevant love-interests i could come back to watch..it is up to the writers..but yep this promo is well-done..now let’s see if they can do something good with it.

    Chemistry is subjective-it’s a matter of taste, making your eyes see what they want to see.

    Personally, I thought Lumi were cute together, but their romantic/love scenes felt rather akward & forced. They had more of a bff/sibling vibe. As for EJole, they have chemistry, but it’s the sleazy kind: they connect on a physical, sexual level-nothing more. It’s as JS said of their ONS: “he NAILED her”. Nicole knows that deep down, Ej will never love her with his heart, because it’ll always belong to someone else (Sami, Taylor).

    I do agree with you about the ratings, though. EJami won’t have an affect on them. Some tune in for them, others tune out because of them – so it balances each other out. Not everyone is the same (if we were the world would be a very dull place indeed ^_^), & not everyone likes the same things/ couples/ characters/ storylines. So, in short, EJami/EJole/Safe/Bope/Jarlena are NOT “ratings gold” or “ratings lead”. I’ve said it once & I’ll say it again, loud & clear: A COUPLE DOES NOT (!!!) MAKE OR BREAK A SHOW. It’s an ignorant, arrogant , baseless assumption used to bash OR to argue in favor of a pairing. It’s really annoying & I wish people would stop saying that, unless they come up with irrefutable proof. Besides, soaps are a dying breed anyway.

    alison (sammy) and galen (rafe) are two of the most attractive people on the entire show of days and they look and seem to be the best couple for each other on the show. I would never want to see sammy with anybody else except perhaps ej. And for rafe I would not want to see him with anyone else except with sammy. I hate how sammys older sister is having so much screen time with rafe, she looks like a dog compared to sammy.-just saying! Those teeth of hers, and her hugging on sammys man rate is so annoying and just ewwwwwww! Its to the point that I hate watching the show because every time you watch days sammys older sister is on the screen with rafe. I only watch the show because I enjoy only seeing sammy and rafe together on the screen. They’re hot together not apart from each other. I definitely will stop watching the show and convince others to do the same, if they try to put sammys older sister carrie together with rafe, even them hooking up is just gross and no one should want that ewwwww.

    dacey you said a mouth full and I concur with you. Everyone must remember that carrie is happily married and her husband is way too old looking to be involved with that extremely young looking girl named abigale. And what is really crazy is how the writers are trying to perhaps pitch the idea of them to being together is just stupid. Carries husband looks psycho, very old looking, wrinkled, stupid hairstyle that looks like he is trying to look youthful and cool but it just comes across as old and desperately trying to be younger than what he obviously is in life. Its really pathetic and sad because who does that. And why has no one tried to help him or say to him about the obvious. It kind of feels like someone is setting him up to be bashed and to look like a fool on screen. This guy has to be at least in his mid fifties or older and he looks every bit of it on screen and probably off. Then if paired with abigale ewwwww just ridiculous. He is better off staying paired up with carrie that is more believable better than abigale. UGHHHH
