EJ saves Sami and her unborn twins from Tony this week on Days of our lives, while the Bradys learn how the pair's look-alike lovers, Santo and Colleen, first met.
"Santo takes a knock to the noggin and is brought to an Irish church,"recounts James Scott(EJ/Santo). "When he regains consciousness, he sees this vision, this unbelievable beauty, who is Colleen. Santos is immediately taken by her, but Colleen is resistant. She'a a novice."
The reveal comes as Julie reads the first two letters between Santo and Colleen to the mesmerized Doug, John, Marlena, Bo and Hope- and Tony spies on the Bradys from nearby. The letters reveals that Santo later returned to bring Colleen a silk hand-kerchief she ordered for her father, Pete. The two men nearly come to blows; Colleen intervenes. Santo asks Colleen to meet him for a picnic the next day. "Santo realizes that it's unlikely she will come,but he's hopeful," notes Scott. "There's a connection between them."
Meanwhile, back in present-day Salem, EJ tries to talk Tony out of finding Sami and harming her babies, to no avail. So EJ meets with Roman "and warns him that Tony will do anything to find Sami," notes Scott. "Tony's desperate to get these babies to save Stefano." Roman gets a message to Sami and Lucas, who leave the safe house just as Tony arrives and finds the house empty. Knowing EJ is to blame, Tony ties him up and rigs a gun to shoot him in the chest when the door is opened. John and Steve arrive, suspect a setup and manage to free EJ, who's relieved to learn Sami and Lucas escaped unharmed. However, before leaving for a new safe house, Sami instructs EJ to steer clear of her.
"EJ's trying to do something for the right reason for the first time in his life, but it's not going as well as he hoped," notes Scott. "He's got a huge hill to climb." When Roman suggests using EJ as bait to trap Tony, EJ agrees on one condition: He wants to go to the safe house, too. "If EJ does this, he's going to need protection," says Scott. "Because if Tony finds out, he's going to kill him. EJ is willing to take the risk to protect his kids. Sure, he'd like to get together with Sami, too, but protecting his kids is his main motivation."
Aside from Sami apparently being totally ungrateful... again... I love it.
