I agree that the current Sami cannot be with EJ b/c she will not tolerate the way he is now, and I cannot see him abandoning his father and the business for anyone. He may, on the surface, attempt to change like he did when he told about John, but that didn't last long.

I think there was more to it than that. I heard that the babyswitch s/l would have been solved in September if AS had not signed her contract, but when she did.they decided to give it a longer time and tie it in with AZ's maternity leave. I am not sure that was a good move, tho, b/c people are tired of it now.
As far as JS goes, he said he liked working with AZ b/c he thought they looked good together and he could,as a character, be himself with her. He never could with Sami's character. I don't think it's that AZ's wit and sass is gone b/c she is paired up with EJ-- b/c in the beginning, it was there. I think it's b/c of the s/l and the writing she has been given. If she is too feisty it will give away the fact that she is hiding something. The bottom line is IMO, that this should have been solved by now instead of dragging it out to end when AZ goes on maternity leave.
Just curious...but where was JS quoted saying he preferred to work with one actress over the other, or how he felt about how they look together? Do you have a source or a link you can share for that interview?
My interpretation of the post is that JS likes to work with AZ. He never has talked bad about AS. The poster didnt even mention her in the paragraph referring to working with AZ. Its not a "one over the other" as you are trying to make it out to be. Both actors are professional.
As for his comments about working with AZ, this is from SOD "Love Actually" article:
"Arianne is very easy to work with, she's always prepared, she's always willing to listen to my ideas."
He did say this about AZ in said article: "I think physically, height-wise, it matches, especially on a soap opera." So, "look-wise," since AZ is taller then AS, then its easier to block scenes with him because he's so tall.
The reason he mentioned SAMI, IMO, is because the current Sami will not be with EJ as is. Either Sami will have to go back to being the schemer/bad girl she started and/or EJ would have to stop being a DiMera. Sami only accepts EJ if he's not in the family business.
One of the reasons that I read about for why they have and are changing Sami's character was that this Sami fits much better with AS's Biggest Loser image-- that of a kind, caring, and considerate person. The old Sami didn't portray that image. I read this about 6 months ago. Whether this is the real reason, who knows. But it does make sense.
