In one breath he says he wants Sydney in his life but not Nicole and in the next breath he tells her to leave and to take 'THAT' with her?! What the?!!!
I have always been THE BIGGEST Ejami fan out. Friday just threw me.
Before Friday, I wanted Sami to tell EJ that she had his child at his wedding. I CONVINCED myself that Sami kept her baby a secret because she was scared of Stefano's influence, especially after the run in they had at the cemetary when she was still pregnant. I kept dreaming and hoping for an Ejami reunion... And then EJ had to ruin everything by referring to Sydney as 'THAT'.
He's no man. I no longer have any sympathy for him. His attractiveness just disappeared in that instance. I agree with Sami telling him that she'd do it all again - keeping the baby from him. Look at his treatment of Sydney in all this. If I'd had a baby with him, I wouldn't want him influencing my child either.
I did not like him calling Sydney "THAT" but I get it..it's his defense mechanism. He is hurt and the child whom he loved is basically being taken away from him. Chad turns up and wants his child..like EJ says he gets that he understands Chad being lied to by Mia but Chad has the chance to be with his daughter while EJ does not (as far as they all know). He had to convince Nicole that he wanted her out of his life and that to continue to use Sydney as a scapegoat would no longer work. He had to be cold...heck that's what EJ is to people once they turn on him. COLD. ....it's like I said his defense mechanism. ITA though it still sucked...LOL
I hated it, too - but given EJ's current state of mind (and the shitty way they've insisted on writing him in this) I think it fits. He wasn't saying it to hurt Sydney - it was intended to be a shot at Nicole. I found it mildly interesting that Nicole didn't so much as seem to blink about it. If the father of my child, adopted, stolen or otherwise, ever referred to it as a "that" you can bet your ass I'd have a few choice words for him. Nicole just simpered off.
The way they are writing both EJ and Nicole in this part of the reveal makes it hard to recognize or sympathize with either character. In fact, I'd like to volunteer to just take Sydney away from all these nut cases and raise her as my own. ^_^
