Quoting limited to 4 levels deepPosted Image
A couple of scenes dont make a storyline. And since I think sami's relationship with Ej is the worse out of all. And her relationship with Rafe doesn't make much sense either. And to tell the trith Lumi really don't have any real relationship on this show To say this is the best is basically. Pure B S.
Agreed, I mean - c'mon on now. A scene is not a relationship. That is like saying because Same and Lucas are Will's parents that they work great as co-parents, even if we actually don't really ever see them work together as parents (yesterday notwithstanding, as that was a rare recent glimpse, and another reason why Monday's scenes made me happy). And I don't think a snarky buddy buddy relationship with Lucas alone makes any kind of sense, so that doesn't work for me. But, I realize beggars can't be choosers, so I will take what I am spared. But this is not a perfect version of a Lumi relationship imo, and it's also not really a "relationship" based on one or two scenes. But if we get more with the two of them together, then I will reconsider what the show is trying to establish as a current relationship for Lumi.
I think the point of the original poster said, and which I agreed with, is this would be a fantastic balance for all three of her men. If she's going to be with EJ, we need to see her bad girl side - not her false heroine BS. If we're going to see her with Lucas, they need to have scheming banter. Etc. Obviously, each fanbase wants romance for their ship. Giving them those crumbs has turned Sami into glorified whore. I'd prefer these crumbs - and for them to actually solidify their relationships in this way. No more back and forth, just adult relationships, and adult stories within the realities of these dynamics. We've seen more of the real Sami in the past week than we have in years (which also explains her dynamic with Rafe now). It is unlikely to stay like that - she hasn't had consistent writing in years - but I would like it to.

I was always a Sami fan first, and I loved watching her fail due to her failings being a schemer. I loved Lucas and Sami all through the 90s like many LUMIs but my issue was once they were a couple, especially post-Reilly, they failed to write for LUMI. They forgot just about everything that made them work together as enemies, friends, and schemers for over ten years. When EJ came along, I appreciated what they gave to Sami through him. He was a wicked man seeking a wicked woman. Then Sami ceased to be wicked. The balance of her relationships have been wrong since 2006.
On bolded and isn't that the biggest travesty...because we know that Sami isn't 'really' wicked...she was bad, but she still cared about how people felt about her, or at the very least she had some kind of moral compass that was displayed through certain traits, (not being a cheater-being one of them). Her and Lucas were bad apples trying to be good. When Ej came along, I never saw a good bone in his body, he was pure sinister, a sociopath who has very little remorse for anything he did. Sami and Lucas could have schemed together from the point of them falling in love, they didn't need to bring someone else to do that with her, especially when the majority of the audience at that time got to watch the story slowly come to fruition over years, and it made damn more sense that what it does now with Ej simply because of the foundation of what Lumi had in the beginning.

The problem I find is that they have to take Sami into a very, very dark place to be able to mesh with Ej and that is never who she's been...because unlike Ej, she cares.....I hope that the story we are seeing leads her to a realization that she can't be with Ej because she doesn't like who she becomes when she's with him, and she has the same realization about Rafe. She has a perfect balance of both her good/bad worlds with Lucas and that is a shame that they have never been able to capitalize on that dynamic after they became a couple because they wanted to showcase them in a different way regardless of the history they showcased.
