I'll have to go back and watch that first one but I don't see how that second one is "choosing" one over the other. That's how I feel about everything this last year too. They weren't in either/or positions. That being said, I also don't see why it's a big deal. I can think of plenty of times Marlena "chose" or showed a preference to Sami over both Carrie and John (every single time she was kidnapped, every single time Sami was scheming and she chose to believe Sami's innocent act). Just because Sami has been whining about it for years doesn't mean it's true. I posted a clip in here a while back from 1999 where Carrie and Marlena are fighting and Carrie says something about Marlena always choosing Sami. Same thing applies. Just because Carrie said it doesn't mean it's true, but it does mean it's not as definite as Sami has made it out to be.

I asked this on twitter, but no one responded so I'm going to try here. I'd like to see clips, or at the very least some episode descriptions, of Marlena choosing Carrie over Sami. Not from this last regime. While I don't agree that she did that with the last regime either, I at least know what others are talking about when they reference that. I want to see what people are referring to when they say "always." I can't even think of more than one time when she even had to make a choice between the two, and the time I'm thinking of isn't a great example either (and she chose Sami).
I've been thinking about this since I read this at work today (obviously, my job is very stressful and allows me time to think about Days of our Lives)...
1) Marlena asked Carrie to be her maid of honor at her aborted attempt to marry John in 1997. Carrie then proceeded, as an afterthought, to get permission from Marlena to ask Sami to be in the wedding - in order to test whether Sami legitimately had amnesia.
2) Marlena told Sami to go home after Austin and Carrie's 1997 wedding (including the slap heard 'round the world after Sami uttered to John, "You aren't my father... even if you ARE sleeping with my mother.")
...That's all I got.
If you asked to name the times when Marlena has chosen John over Sami, I could name plenty.
