It was heralded as the can’t-miss episode of Days of our Lives featuring EJami, Alison Sweeney and James Scott, which was virtually like a three-act play, and it gave plenty of emotional material for both fan favorite actors to seek their teeth into.
And it was inferred that this would be the episode where Sami learns that EJ cheated on her with Abigail (Kate Mansi)! Even On-Air On-Soaps believed that we were going to see the stunning reveal and the fallout, and as we know, hell hath no fury like a Sami scorned! However, DAYS had other plans for its viewers. SPOILER: If you have not seen today’s episode do not read any further.
What started as being in the present was EJ getting his hands on the envelope containing the damning evidence of his tryst with Abigail! Shocked at seeing the photo and trying to figure out who would have sent this, Sami comes in to the scene and grabs the photo from him. Thus, we begin the different stages of Sami’s reaction! From betrayal, hurt, and anger, Sami went through it all! There was even the great moment when Sami looked at the picture of Abby and EJ, and wondered if EJ had sex with the younger gal because she was skinny harkening back to Sami’s weight issues.
But as the scenes went on about halfway through the episode, anyone who questioned if this was really playing out, or just a dream/fantasy/nightmare of EJ’s got their answer. It was all in EJ’s mind of how this whole scenario would play out if Sami learned the truth, and if all the worst case scenarios proved true: Abigail being pregnant, and Sami causing Abby to go over the railing of a staircase and lose the baby! But you have got to have loved some of the lines Alison Sweeney got to utter during the special episode!
When it came back to reality after Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) also entered EJ’s worst case fantasy, viewers were left with Sami wanting to get married ASAP and EJ vowing to not let anyone ruin his relationship with Sami.
So what does this set the stage for? A few things: Since Alison Sweeney is departing DAYS, maybe this was the episode where she gets to say everything Sami would’ve had said had she ever found out, and when Sami truly finds out this might end very differently, and facilitate her exit? It also gives one more person ammo to throttle Nick’s (Blake Berris) neck, if that is who is indeed behind this. And Nick is racking up a ton of enemies right now, so you know what that could mean?
So weigh-in! What did you think of today’s special EJami episode? Did you feel duped? Were you pleasantly surprised? Did you love the performances? Did you enjoy the fantasy scenes? Let us know!
