I've given up on trying to figure out who behind the scenes wanted what - I don't know that we'll ever know for certain. But I definitely agree that the triangle has run it's course. Repeatedly. Here's hoping they finally put a stop to it.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
And I can certainly understand why some people love EJ loving Sami no matter what, but storylines have been known to come to an end. Remember when Sami was madly in love with Austin? What happened to that storyline? It came to an end. Remember when Stefano was madly in love with Marlena and Marlena was madly in love with Roman? What happened to those storylines? They came to an end. So why is it that this particular storyline is never to be touched or changed? We didn't see EJ think of Sami for a good long time with Taylor and then Nicole and in both cases at least he was with women who truly loved and wanted to be with him. So just because EJ has been written to love Sami no matter how many times she rejects that love doesn't mean he can't be written to love someone else. Sami moved on from Austin, Stefano moved on from Marlena and Marlene moved on from Roman and there's certainly no reason why EJ can't move on from Sami. :shrug:
I definitely agree that storylines often come to an end. And there have been times when it appeared they were going to move EJ on from being besotted with Sami. Which begs the question as to why it's never lasted. My personal belief is someone - be that TPTB, the writers, whoever - feel like there is enough interest in the EJami pairing that they never quite end it completely. Despite having Sami shoot him in the head or EJ actively participating in a plot that put a doppleganger in her bed, just a couple of examples of reasons we all thought at one time or another it was done.
My personal hope is they finally go in the one direction they never have with this story - and FINALLY have Sami reciprocate his feelings openly and honestly. In fact, I'd have much preferred to see EJ seemingly have moved on with someone else and then Sami pursuing him for a change. But however it happens, I think it's as likely that we'll eventually see Sami embrace her feelings for EJ as we will ever see EJ truly give up and move on for good.
JMO but I think the s/l with ejami was coming to an end when GT was EP and they were going with Safe. Then Mardar came on board and things were reversed with Safe ending and moving forward with Ejami. Now, the writers have changed again, and we don't really know for sure which direction they are taking with this triangle. I get what KC said about LSB, but I, personally, am not buying into it until I see more proof of it. For me, it is time to end this Ej/Sami/ Rafe fiasco. It does no favors for the actors, characters, or the show. The writers need to choose a pairing, stick to it and write a good story for them. Stop trying to please fanbases; it always backfires because none of us just want crumbs.
