I don't really have a problem with Sami bitching out Nicole when all is said and done in this reveal when they have made Sami such an idiot over the past few months thinking Nicole is her new bestie and bending over backwards to help her keep Sydney. Nicole hasn't just done what Sami did in keeping a paternity a secret. She's gone above and beyond keeping a teenage girl and her ex-boyfriend from having the chance to rightly grieve their dead baby and prevented a hurting EJ and Sami from knowing their daughter together is really alive. And she's doing this all out of selfishness thinking she's entitled to this baby because she went through the miscarriage. I just don't buy the contention that Nicole was just trying to reunite EJ with his real child by swapping the kids. I think there was some underlying jealousy/hatred of Sami there that compelled her to switch them and I always saw her switching the kids as some backup plan so that if anyone ever questioned her she could still have EJ's DNA and the baby's DNA match up. This whole business of allowing EJ to be with his real flesh and blood was just her justification from this whole scam and her not telling him the whole truth when he thinks Sydney is not his biologically just shows that to me even more. I mean... her keeping everything a secret and keeping everything going til the end and playing on Sami's sympathy knowing she is grieving a dead baby that wasn't even hers and that she has Sami's real child... that's just a whole other level of evil and selfishness that no amount of Nicole's crocodile tears can wash away for me.
That said, I don't want Nicole off the show or killed off or anything like that. I just want to see her sufficiently punished and humbled and alone so that I can root for her again as she tries to pick up the pieces of her life.
That said, there is some hypocrisy or at least inconsistency that is baffling me right now as far as Sami is concerned. I just don't get that Sami was supposedly so afraid of Stefano and her baby being raised under a DiMera roof that she had to keep her pregnancy a secret from everyone in the WPP yet she is like the biggest cheerleader ever for EJ raising Sydney when there's another father around who, yeah maybe he's a teenager and been to reform school for pot recently, but is willing to step up to the plate and be a parent to the kid. If she really thought EJ and the DiMeras were as awful as she made them out to be when she was trying to keep the baby she thought was hers from them, why is she so deadset on subjecting this other baby to their corrupting influence?
I am head over heels in love with this post. :hail: :hail:
