I understand what you are getting at and it kind of makes sense from a adding to the drama of the moment perspective but it doesn't make sense from a reality perspective.

I read somewhere deep in the posts the suggestion that the writers are under the impression they did write EJAMi angst for the past 3 months. Possible. Part of the reason I was unmoved by the now famous Sami's choice scene is the way James Scott played it, so coldly and insincerely. Is he really a bad actor or is he just not motivated to play the role as it has been written?
I thought it was really obvious why JS played EJ the way he did in the scene. Sami, along with the audience, was supposed to think he'd be unwilling to forgive her. The somewhat dour look on his face while she was talking was so that his forgiveness at the end of the scene would be a surprise.
My main problem was that this isn't really the way I would usually expect EJ to handle such a situation.... still maybe this is the way Everett rolls.
