Honestly, has there ever been a worse love triangle than EJami/Lumi on Days? I just don't get what Sheffer thinks he's going to accomplish with this crap. It doesn't make me dislike EJ or feel sorry for Lucas if that's what he's hoping to do with this episode because the plot is too ridiculous and disjointed to have any emotional impact, and if he thinks this is how I want to see EJ win over Sami's heart then he's sorely mistakened on that account. Once again we have EJ desperately scheming underhandedly to try to become a part of Sami's life and we have Lucas once again as the emasculated and helpless doofus in distress and we have Sami, a once strong and shrewd and street smart character, stuck as a watered down and weepy victim yet again. Does anyone want to see this? I'm curious if this can even be truly an enjoyable episode from a Lumi fan standpoint when your guy is lying there unconscious and Sami has to save him again? I mean, yeah, you may get to gloat for now about the TRUE nature of EJ but I can't help but think you want a little more for your couple's storyline than this rehash of Sami and EJ needed for Lucas's rescue for the THIRD time by my count (besides Dec. 29 there was also the fire at his and Carrie's apt. that EJ and Sami rescued Lucas from). This thing is just going in circles and needs to move forward already.
And the most sad thing of all is that this stupid plot point has apparently been in the works for quite a while as Lucas foreshadowed it all in what seemed to be a throwaway line in the episode a month ago when the first of the Colleen and Santo letters arrived.
"I know," says Lucas, "Your neighbor could be a really nice person and the next thing you know he's got a freezer full of people-pops chillin."
I agree with you Aremid even as a mostly Lumi fan, Sheffer has ruined them and I think he has ruined EJami also. For years I wanted Lucas and Sami together but not this way. I am not a big EJ fan (as you all may have noticed from other posts) but I don't hate him either. Just dislike the way he is written. Dislike the way most of my favs (and the general show) is written. I haven't seen today's episode as I work all day, but from your description, I won't enjoy it. If Sheffer was going to give the men their penises back, he forgot Lucas and Sami too!
