If Nicole had not had the babies switched EJ would still be grieving the loss of a daughter he never knew, the only difference would be that the child really would have been his. Circumstance and lies kept Sydney safe with the DiMera's.
While Grace is was not EJ's child, he did lose a daughter, he lost NICOLE'S daughter. EJ just doesn't know it.
Huh? How do you figure? Are you saying there was a bacterial meningitis germ lurking around Sami that would have infected whatever infant she had? :blink:
Somehow I don't think it works quite like that. :shrug:
And you are right - EJ did lose his daughter with Nicole. And her refusal to tell him about that and then faking her pregnancy and scheming to pass off a different child in it's place is no less cruel than Sami's lie. Neither one of them are blameless - and while Sami may be suffering her karma now, Nicole's likely isn't too far behind.
Actually it does work like that. It was an unfortunate and possibly unpreventable but Grace was exposed to bacterial meningitis while in Sami's care. Had Sydney, not Grace been in the same places Sydney would have been the one to be exposed, therefore Sydney would have been the one to die.
That is why Stefano said, "There but for the grace of God and Nicole's cunning..."
I think Nicole's lie was a cruel thing to do to Sami but it was actually a GENEROUS thing she did for EJ. Thanks to Nicole Sydney is alive, well and living with her father.
I just think that's a very big assumption. Who is to say one child might not be more susceptible than another? If being exposed is a sure thing to developing the illness then child care centers, etc. would have sweeping deaths within a day or so in just one exposure. I'm no expert - but I don't think it's accurate to automatically assume that what happened to Grace would have happened to any other child in the same household/environment.
And I doubt EJ will concur with your theory that Nicole was being generous to him in her lies and deceptions. At the time she strapped on the fake baby belly she had absolutely no clue that Sami was pregnant. She fully intended to pass a random child off as theirs. The fact that she was able to grab Sami's newborn to swap with the one she had procured was happenstance...and unfortunate writing. :P
It is not an assumption but a FACT to say that infants and small children are more susceptible. If you were comparing an infant with an adult you would have a point.
In RL anyone that had recent intimate or direct exposure to Grace with would be at increased risk for contracting meningococcal disease and should have receive prophylactic medication.
I'm not going to hold my breath on how EJ will react. For all I know he will find Nicole's actions adorable.
