Which is exactly why this whole "griefsex" thing made no sense at all. It was merely a plot point for the whole Will story, to cause trouble for Safe so that Carrie and Rafe could get together, causing trouble between sisters.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Did you ever watch the version of Sami pre Ej coming to town? If you compare that version to the version post EJ, you'll see why many people are having issues with the way she has been portrayed since then. I started noticing the problem with Sami way back in 2007 when I kept reading about Sami always being fickle? I kept thinking to myself...where the hell are these people getting this from? She was NEVER fickle...she was ALWAYS a one woman man (one at a time obviously).....she loved that one person (or obsessed when it came to Austin) and she was ALL about that man. Then it changed over time and although in 2007 she was still shown to love Lucas deeply there was definitely a change in who her character became and that was all on Sheffer who apparently wanted to make two men fight over Sami. That had never happened before, men never 'fought' over her....she would always be in the triangle with another woman fighting for a man....
I personally have a hard time believing that Sami would EVER do what she did this time around, because it was such a part of her character (pre 2006) that is...that it's engrained in who she is. She feared this so much, she feared to be just like her mother and true it's soapy and all, and it's Karma for her treatment of Marlena through the years, but let's face it...it could have been done so much better. Sami cheating on Rafe with Ej is just stupid. There is no way she could ever know how Marlena felt and I don't even think that was the intent....I'm starting to think this was done so that Will can be the Sami to his parents. Sami always wanted her parents to get back together, Will is going to want the opposite of that simply because he thinks his mother is a cheap tramp. I see him and Kate teaming up to stop Lumi if they ever go there again.....
That's exactly my point. The "old Sami", the one that many want to return, is not the Sami we are seeing now, she's certainly not the Sami that I watched from the time she came on Days up until 2006. The "old Sami" never cheated on the man she truly loved, she was never fickle, not until the writers decided to make her that way to have two men fight over her.
The Sami we saw during the "summer of suck" was not the old Sami either, bouncing between two men, yet always knowing deep inside she only wanted Rafe. The old Sami would have never done that. That was Sami written totally out of character. This Sami I don't even recognize.
Even Summer of Suck Sami couldn't bring herself to actually have sex with EJ when she and Rafe had officially broken up and she was engaged to EJ. She only declared her love for him and insisted on getting married ASAP after thinking she saw Rafe getting ready to bed Nicole. We've also seen Sami mourn two children supposedly father by EJ, and in neither case did she turn to having grief sex with EJ.
