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. Who like Austin wanted out of Sami to change anytime they have had EJAMI play house since 2008 she believed "he changed". That is why this last go around I could get behind EJOLE because she loves and accepts him for wgho he is, Sami does not and never will. That has been proven time and again. There were periods where Sami got Austin but like with EJAMI its not meant to last before EJ's schemes like Sami's over Austin blew up.
First of all, when was Sami and EJ syrupy sweet under Mardar's tenure? I must have missed it when she cheated on Rafe with EJ, was bitching to Marlena, Carrie and the whole Brady clan for months, did corporate espionage, slapped the shit out of Carrie or was mad as hell when she found out was lying to her and was blackmailing Will. She wasn't even pleasant for long to EJ when Lexie died. Or maybe I missed it when EJ stole John's pension funds, ran a slimy campaign, cheated on Nicole, blackmailed Will, etc. etc.

Second, I have my own views about Sami's love for the 3 guys in her life right now. I'm not going to try to convince you to deviate from your current opinion but I hope you don't mind that I share my thoughts since you have done so. IMO, Lucas is Sami's first real love, but as of right now is based primarily on history and friendship. Rafe represents the "perfect guy" type that Sami has chased after for years, along with dream and fairytale, topped with ropes and unicorn poop. Looks like as of this week, Sami is going to learn that those kinds of guys don't exist, or at least that Rafe is far from it (thank goodness). EJ is the guy in her mind she neither shouldn't be with nor love but can't help to love. Everyone is ready to whip out the long list of (legitimate reasons why she shouldn't be with him and she tries her best to stay away but that never lasts long. So, I "buy" that they love each other. If you don't, that's fine.

Finally, I would be careful to use the word "never" when it comes to soaps, especially with this one. For a time, I thought Rafe would never would get outed for a secret the way others have on this show. Lo and behold, this week is going to change all of that and with Tomsell at the helm too. I also never thought they would make Nicole pregnant again but then she was so I thought, as much as I hate it, I guess she'll have the baby because there is no way they would have her lose another kid, right? Looks like I'm wrong again. Hell, I even thought I would never like Rafe in a storyline but Cafe changed my mind, at least temporarily. And that's just the "normal" stuff, I don't even want to start on the crazy, campy things some people thought they would never do.
Drinking wine in the midddle of the afternoon being very chummy with the near kissess and acting like nothing ever happened with R2 was whitewashing and being syrupy sweet and I am well aware that "never" is never "never" on a soap I was just saying I personally will never buy Sami being in love with EJ. I also don't ever intend to change anyones mind. I was just stating my opinion which is different then yours and thats all good. :)
