After all... tomorrow is another day!
Thanks for the extremely insightful and extensive response that gave me a lot better idea where you are coming from.
As for how you felt about EJami pre-rape/sex extortion, I was not aware of any of that as I am still a fairly new poster at SON so I did not know you used to be a big EJ fan and obviously I'm totally with you on wishing EJ and Sami could have started a great romance when the Saustin wedding fizzled.
And it's reading posts like this that make me HATE Hogan Sheffer even more than I did before (which I wasn't sure possible) for the way he so cavalierly tossed aside all the great things the writers under Beth did last summer and for the fact that he could so carelessly toss so much potential away to ruin EJ in so many people's eyes and for what? One melodramatic episode, a chance to backburner John, a perverse who's the daddy twist, a couple months of Steve being crazy boring us all to tears and to prop Lumi? To me, that's the part that irks me the most of all and makes it impossible for me to ever support Lumi in any fashion. I think it was a cheap ploy to stamp out the EJami fanbase with a troubling storyline that wasn't writing the characters true to who they were and obviously it hugely backfired and that's why they are backpedaling like crazy, but the maddening part of it all is that it wouldn't have been necessary at all if Hogan wasn't such an idiot and he had actually watched the show he was given the chance to write. If he wanted to do Lumi, fine, he could have had a little patience before dropping the stinkbombs on EJami rather than throwing Lucas and Sami back together immediately. He could have had EJ be shady while he was romancing Sami but have Sami not find out and then let Lucas expose EJ's DiMera roots perhaps as another Sami wedding was about to go off and then she could leave with Lucas and Lumi fans would get a legit reason to compare their couple to Bo and Hope. If they wanted to prolong the triangle they could have easily allowed Sami to get pregnant right after this and not know who the father was and have Sami have to make a real choice of which man she wanted to be with rather than having that choice made for her by that man's actions and the who's the daddy plot wouldn't have the ick factor of rape/sex extortion attached to the children's conception that I think was a big part of turning off DOOL viewers the first part of the year.
But no... Sheffer was obsesed with his "ultimate sacrifice" crap because he's decided since Sami had been a bad girl for so long she needed to be punished and weakened and tamed and victimized before she was allowed to get any happiness in a relationship with a man and those things also had to happen for saintly Lucas to ever lower himself to ever take her back and agree to be with her and the thing is I think he's still pulling this crap now to punish Sami if he goes ahead with the possible plot of unrecognizably unselfish Sami still playing the martyr to her family by possibly marrying EJ to end the feud to make up for all the bad things she's done in the past. It's just all so obnoxious.
