Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.
I honestly do see why many thought EJ and Nicole had great potential. But for me, they were ruined from the start because of how they started. Nicole entered in to the relationship knowing full well that EJ was head over heels in love with Sami. He told her so repeatedly - so it's not as though she was just unaware. Yet they moved forward when EJ very clearly settled for her after finding out she was pregnant and extending one last opportunity to Sami at the cabin to give him any indication there was hope for a future for them. And then to have Nicole proceed with all the lies and deceit just compounded the issue. Even at the point that she miscarried I do think TPTB had the opportunity to make EJole the rooting couple - if she had been honest with him and he had stood by her regardless. Had those things happened I know in my heart I would have lost all hope for EJami. But since it didn't play out that way and EJ was basically lied to, manipulated and made to look like such a doofus it ruined any chance I might have found to root for EJole.
I love the character of EJ and it was awful, for me, to watch him be sacrificed so completely for this storyline. So as much as I think both Ari Z and James Scott are fantastic, sexy, talented, funny, etc - I just can't root for their characters to wind up together based on the history that already exists between them.
No doubt that is exactly how many feel about EJami - that their history hinders any opportunity for them to be a viable pair in the future - and I get that. But for me, the history be damned with EJami. I wanted them before the worst of it happened, and I wanted them more afterward. So clearly, we all want what we want for whatever reasons...and that's why TPTB have such an easy time of it stirring the fan base wars and making us all half crazy with frustration. :lol:
