I'm the first to agree with you about what Sami did to EJ and the lack of regret on her part. Sami was wrong in keeping Grace's existence from him, especially after her saying over and over what a wonderful father he is. I agree about the terrible writing about everyone supporting her decision as well. We all know she slept with EJ because she wanted to, and at the time, all the Bradys were embracing him as well, including Marlena and Roman.

I'm not even excited about the reveal anymore. They've worked overtime to redeem Nicole, which I hate, because it's clear that they want to make her "good" and sweep all the effects of her lies and deception over everyone that she's hurt under the rug. It's become clear to me that they are making NICOLE the victim, which disgusts me.
how is that any different than what's been done with sami? everyone in town said that they would have hid ej's baby from him, too, and not ONE person, not even her own father, wondered why in the hell sami slept with ej in the first place. talk about sweeping someone's lies and deceptions under a rug.
i will admit that they are working very hard to redeem nicole, which is much more preferable to me than ignoring scenes from a year ago to make a character look good. you talk about them ignoring what nicole did, but that isn't true. they're just actually showing her feeling guilty over it, unlike sami. TPTB never even tried
to make sami feel guilty for what she did to ej, they just made everyone in town justify her bad behavior, thinking that the audience would accept that. obviously some have, but i like to see a little bit more work put into a redemption than just ignoring the facts of the situation.
I don't buy Nicole's redemption. If she was that sorry and felt that guilty she would tell EJ the truth. She keeps saying, even now, that she doesn't want to lose "everything she ever wanted". I don't want her to be destroyed, but I do want her to lose Sydney and EJ, and I want her deeds to be revealed. I just don't think that we'll get that, and it will make this whole year another waste of time on a storyline that simply doesn't deliver. I hope that I'm wrong though.
