It seems more like they are being open about trying to re-create Roman and Marlena dynamic as well. They are comparing it to that, which is fine. Your right there is a concern it will be forced but I also think chemistry and story can trump that and the whole premise of him protecting her and them sparring back and forth while also falling in love is classic soap. It's about time the show went back to this and I like the idea of Sami getting swept off her feet. That is how EJ and Sami began but that went downhill shortly after that.
I don't think they are forcing them on us. It is mentioned there may be a romantic beat so it seems like this may be Days testing the waters, which is ok right now since the stories finally have direction now. I can deal with testing things out if the whole show isn't lacking direction.
I loved early Shuis. It's when there was no payoff after like 5 years that I started hating them. That and Mac's acting got horrible. She lost her spark and didn't get it back until Sheridan became a bitch. I became a Luis/Fancy and alot of that had to do with how they came together, which was actually quite like how Luis and Sheridan got together. They sparred alot, he saved her life and was protecting her...it was very similar. It's a tried and true soap cliche but it's one Days itself hasn't used in awhile so it does have a fresh feeling to it given Days has not done it in awhile.
I'm just happy to see something new and fresh for Sami. That alone has me interested.
