I don't know who the hell EJ is anymore. I loved EJ the dashing man of mystery last summer/fall, I loved EJ the slimy, but honest about being slimy witty villain of the winter/spring who was always one step ahead of everyone, I loved EJ as the remorseful Lancelot trying to do everything he could do to protect Sami even though she was married to someone else and it required him going against his family to protect her this summer but this... what the hell IS this? Dumb, desperate, deceitful EJ? I don't recognize him and I don't like this. If EJ's redemption wasn't real and there is no chance that Sami will fall for him, and to me that is how they are playing it now, then what a pointless waste of time their story this summer and Colleen-Santo has been for all viewers. It pissed off EJ/EJami haters for no reason, and EJ/EJami fans like me who got their hopes up are getting stabbed in the back AGAIN. And all for the sake of what? Propping Lucas Roberts? The jobless horny dork whose fans have to campaign for him to steal another character's story as a DiMera for him to actually be interesting? Sorry, Sheffer but if this is supposed to make me hate EJ and like Lucas by having EJ act like a desperate jerk it's not working. It just makes me hate THIS SHOW and rethink whether watching it is a good use of my time.
I also don't know who Sami is either. This isn't the misunderstood but totally self-interested calculating bitch I rooted for all these years. It's like she got redeemed and supposedly she's happy now, but she still has as much low self-esteem as always and is just as desperate in her desire for approval of others, it's just she doesn't scheme any more so she's just a pathetic weepy bore.
And Lucas? Am I supposed to care if he almost dies or he can't feel his legs and falls down because they apparently just fell asleep? Because I don't. I don't feel bad for him that another man is trying to steal his wife away. I don't root for him to get the girl because he's a total wimp who needs rescuing every five seconds. He isn't charming or smart or ambitious. Yet we don't get to see his flaws acknowledged either so I can't even root for him a little bit as an underdog. Because he's not an underdog as the story has been rigged for him to get the girl in every way possible.
And that's why I'm not even watching...lol. I prefer to live in a fantasy world where Sami is still a lovable bitch, Lucas is her foil, and EJ is mysterious.
