You know I found it kind of strange last week or the week before when someone here put up the dialogue for the Sami and Ej scene where he lends his support for Will to her and they are talking about Will and all....the person noted it was a dialogue that would have been better suited for Lumi and frankly now that you mention it....he is Lucas in this storyline...lol...fuck Everett, Ejucas it is!

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
the problem lucas should not just pop up he should be big part of the story and if lucas is nonimportant to story to be big part of it to that logic neiter should sami be important to story too
I agree that Lucas should have a bigger role to play in this storyline, I think the main problem is that Tomlin considers the character to be irrelevant. It's hard to overcome that kind of obstacle, IMO. Hell, Tomlin is not even bothering to write scenes for Lucas and Kate in any real capacity. That can't be good.
I don't think that Will accepting advice from EJ or EJ wanting to help Will equals EJ usurping Lucas' fatherly role, though. Let's face it, when this whole baby thing came out of nowhere both Lucas and Sami got pretty excitable about the whole thing while EJ can look at it from a less personal, more detached POV. It was the same thing when Will came out, Sami and Lucas freaked while EJ calmly let Will know he was on his side and could be counted on for support. Will is a young adult who is well aware of who his parents are and he doesn't see EJ as a fatherly figure, but rather more of a mentor that at times he's on the outs with. Completely different from say Johnny/Allie/Sydney and their relationship with Rafe, which due to their young ages resulted in him very much being a replacement father to them.
Ej is totally Lucas in this storyline. You could put Lucas in the same scenes saying the same lines and it makes more sense. Even Rafe's crack about Johnny and Sydney made it sound like EJ was Will's father. The line made no sense at all.
Ej as this character, Sami and Will's super support, does not even look remotely like EJ.
Fuck Everett. We're watching Lucas now being played by Ej. The true Ejucas.
And here I thought Corduffy was bad.
