Has anyone ever said EJ wasn't mentally ill? I don't think so. I think Sami Brady is mentally ill, LOL. They're one in the same. Which was Hogan's original plan.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepI remember reading that Hogan's goal in Sami and EJ's story was to never let EJ do something to Sami or anyone else that Sami's never done herself. That way, they would always be on an equal playing level.
But the time frame makes it worst. Its worse when an adult does something immature, stupid or even criminal. There is no adult action you can compare to a child action and it would be equal. Even little things.
I come home from work and I see my significant other has skipped work to spend the day playing video games. I go what the heck?! He says you used to do it too. I go, yes when I was ib high school. What's your excuse.
An adult cannot cannot compare themselves to a child and find them equal. You can't see someone as your equal when they are doing stuff you did when you were 16.
Sami's crimes didn't stop when she was 16. They just got worse as she got older. She continued to lie. Raped her sister's boyfriend. Lied about Will's paternity. Lied about amnesia/paralysis. Lied about Lucas hitting Will. Blackmailed left and right. All of that happened (and more) after Sami was an adult.
The idea was a good one to me, and one that really made me fall in love and support the pairing years ago. Can't say I'm still a supporter, but that's because of the terrible writing regimes that came after Hogan.
Most of thst happened when she was a teenager. She did her worst when she was young. And even college age people get more leadway that Ej age.
He is too old to be considered misunderstood. Too old to be kidnapping babies and saying momma don't love you.
