Her love for Lucas and Rafe is so much deeper than what she feels for EJ, yet she time and time again ends up back in EJ's orbit hurting those two. :ermm: I mean at this point, what is Sami's so called love worth. In the DA she told Rafe she never stopped loving him, yet she was banging Lucas and crawling all over EJ; so really, some love.

I too am glad JS admits he doesn't understand the deadbabysex. If he had said he did, we would have call him a liar. :)
Ali has admitted she didn't understand it either...much like a huge part of the audience. That craziness should have never been written and hopefully that is part of the reason MarDar lost their jobs.
I liked what he said about Ej/Sami and Ejole. EJ/Sami are not in love (duh) and he's keeping the door open a little for Ejole...which is always a smart thing to do!
All in all not a bad interview/article.
James said that EJ and Sami "love each other but not necessarily in a romantic way." That doesn't mean that they are not "in love." It means exactly what he says. Do EJ and Sami have a romantic relationship? No, I'm fine with that. In fact, I love it. These are two fucked up people that have done really fucked up things to each other but always somehow end up back into each other's orbit. It's messy and I'd take thaty over any bullshit love story Days has tried to do over the years.
I will NEVER buy Sami as "in love" with EJ in lust? Yeah, love no. MarDar's randition of the syrupy sweet whitewhased EJAMI didn't sell me this last year and neither did Dena's long drawn out EJami summer scenes in 2010 complete with fishing hat proposal. At this point even Sami saying "she loves only him" wouldn't sell me. I will however agree that if from early 2006 had they kept Sami as the black sheep loser in love I would have been sold on EJAMI. As early on I will be big enough to admit they had potential. However Sami has not been written that way and I view Sami's "feelings" about EJ the same as I did Austin's "feelings" about Sami. She may care about him like Austin did Sami but when push came to shove it was proven that he loved Carrie more. Same thing with how Sami loves Rafe and Lucas on a deeper level than EJ.
Personally I love the way that JS phrased it, what EJ and Sami share goes beyond romantic declarations that obviously mean very little when it comes to a woman like Sami, they have this push and pull, they cannot leave each other alone or let go no matter how much either protests, its twisted and a bit out there, but it is so them. Lucas and Rafe are basically interchangeable for Sami, the good guys, the stamp of approvals but only one EJ. :wub2:
