:hail: perfect post. The one thing I want to add is that when Sami told Ej she loved him .....her exact words where of course I love you but more than that I trust you. See that was always the key to why she would not give ALL of herself to a relationship with him ,was the trust you need for another person to be able to meet all your needs. Actions speak when words fail so that will be their true test. All the ilu's ithat Safe spoke meant not cause when the test came they failed . Safe can't except who each other are & with Lumi as they both said (Lucas & Sami) love was not enough so we will see with Ejami if action speak louder than words.

IMHO she used Ej when she thought Johnny had died to 'end the pain' or whatever the fuck she said...she clearly at that time hated Ej, it wasn't a loving moment in the sense of the word....she used him for sex......IMHO she is doing the same thing now...not really as blatant as she was back then, because at least now she is in a relationship with him and doesn't hate him, but still, again IMHO the entire exchange yesterday from the moment she realized that Rafe had absolutely no clue what Nick was up and still thinks Sami will be part of this child's life, and loving her equally as much as he will, left me thinking that she needed to make sure she had a means to neutralize Nick, so she can be there as part of this kid's life just like she wanted to be and just like Rafe thought she would be. Why the need to tell him during that exchange, 'You'd do anything for me right?'.....you see it's how the scenes play out, the dialogue in them.....that simple sentence set the tone for what came later...she said that, continued the sex and then at the end told him what she wanted to achieve after giving him the sex. She's obviously continue today after she tells him. I don't know to me it's coming off as more lust than love from the beginning....but then again, I've always seen Ejami like that. What was the last time she told him she loved him? Why couldn't she defend being with him yesterday when Eric questioned her by saying, "Eric, I love him"...I'm not sure that is the intent (to make the relationship more lustful than loving)...who knows.....they tried to sell the triangle as Sami torn, and I only saw her flashing back to one guy and then 'surprise' she's with Ej....yeah......
While I agree with you that Sami had an agenda in sleeping with EJ yesterday (seducing him into helping her get rid of Nick), I don't think that means she just using him or indicates their relationship is all about lust. We've seen plenty of schmoopy sweet talk and actions from Ejami for the last month to show us otherwise. If this was their only interaction since the Wabi wedding, I'd agree. But it hasn't been and we have more to go on with how they feel about it each other than just yesterday. And as to the ILYs, that doesn't hold a lot of meaning to me. They've both said it once to the other since they became a couple, so it's on record that's how they feel, but I find their actions toward each other to be more telling of how they feel than just the words.
Really, I think yesterday was about Ejami's relationship clearly being in the infancy stage and neither one of them yet sure of who they need to be in this relationship. They obviously both had misconceptions about what the other one would see as an acceptable course of action with Nick. And that just goes to show they don't really know who they are as a couple yet. And I can get why they were both a little leery of going down a darker path since that's been so destructive in their relationship before. But their dark sides are a real part of each of them so its good to see that aspect rear its head in their couple dynamic. Like I said earlier in the thread, they've been in the honeymoon phase, but now they are going to discover how real their love actually is.
