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.

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:
I loved EJole from the moment they got drunk together at the bar and mean old, buzzkill Sami had to stop it.
And like all Days couples, they were good and managed to become so fucked up that I hardly recognize them anymore.

But as history of EJ and Nicole, Nicole knew that EJ was hung up on Sami...even during the drunk bar scene, she was trying to get EJ to get Sami jealous...and she knew what she was talking about because that is a big reason why EJami kissed/slept together in the first place.
But after that, Nicole made it plenty clear that she did not want to be second choice to Samantha, stopped talking/flirting with EJ because she knew he was hung up on Sami, and he promised her that he and Sami were done. Even when she was pregnant, he broke up with Sami during that awesome phone call, said he was the happiest he had ever been, praised Nicole as the best mother (that seems to be his bullshit line though).
Nicole was adamant at first about not being EJ's second pick...and EJ promised her that she wasn't. And aside from the baby drama, he did marry her and make promises.

But that is neither here nor there for many people and their love for their couples. Like you said, history of EJole, and hell EJami be damned. I think that the best potential for a powercouple even now with all that has happened is EJ and Nicole. They are very similar in character and have some major angst...however, EJ needs to do some seriousl groveling before I ever want that asshat near Nicole again!
