Sami has lost her bite not her bark there is no doubt. I guess my original point, not well stated, is that Sami uses this fear of Stefano as her primary excuse for everything Steffi related but she never plays the note. I think it's been bad writing combined with bad direction.

Quoting limited to 3 levels deep
But since Ej came to town Sami has lost that ruthless lack of fear that she once had. Now she ponders everything, she has been scared to do some things and then jumped into others without thinking of consequences. Years ago Sami didn't fear going to Italy to take custody back of Will. This was done while she was dodging various attempts at her life. But she went and she got it done and she didn't care about the concequences then. However recently, around the time of Grace's death when Ej threatened her with taking Johnny away and even before that *during the mob feud* she huffed and puffed and complained but DID NOTHING. She felt helpless and didn't want to fight to take her son out of that dangerous environment, and even before that....you are telling me Sami would NEVER question the DNA results regarding Johnny that were provided to her by a Dimera? Here is a woman that would go through a sewer to prove her innocence just in 2005, but can't muster up enough courage to take the twins and have independent DNA tests run. Sami has definately lost a lot of who she was at one point and I'm not sure she's ever going to get it back now.
First, I don't remember exactly how the paternity stuff went down, but yes I do agree she wouldn't take it on face value. In response to the other stuff, she still has it, it's just it's not always her first resort. Some call it glitterizing or Marlenafication but I don't see it that way, it's character progression. Sami has been on a quest for a long time, before EJ, to be good. I think this is why we are seeing a more passive Sami, in her attempts to do the right thing. However, she still has her moments where she is the Bull in the China Cabinet (thanks Rhi, perfect description).
