Its pure bullshit the fake mantra that I keep hearing that Tomlin doesn't want to write for Ejami. What do you call seven years of constsnt front burner storytelling. Filled with fantasies and rewritten history. He may not want to write them as a stand alone couple but he is more than willing to write for them.
There are so many reasons I hate EJami but number two is because they have been a pet of this show for the last seven years, destructive years, and never deserved it. They were handed the same golden spoon as Dannifer. And neither Shawn nor James has been able to lead a successful story.
I dont understand leading men who don't have any successes but still lead. I thought that shit only happened on Wall Street.
And this show has men that could lead. Brady is a prime example! But no let s make him the idiot goof .
To be fair I'm not saying JS and SC should never lead. But they should not lead all the time. Play around with different storylines and different actors and actresses leading.
You may find an unexpected success instead of constant failure.
First, ejami is not the first nor the last couple on Days that has the benefit of re-written history. In fact, many couples have had that on this show.
Written for? Years of fighting over the kids, pumping lead into someone's head, dopplegangers in another's bed, etc doesn't exactly spell "writing for" to me. Sure, they have them on amicable terms at times but tptb end up pulling the bait and switch. There are quotes from KC himself essentially stating that "The fans want lumi/safe/etc" and that they will never write EJ/Sami together. It's only until the last year that we have seen the writers actually go for this coupling 100%. Dannifer is the complete opposite. They have written as the root for coupling since Jennifer returned this last go round. So, I'm a bit lost as to evidence that places Dannifer and Ejami in the same category, beyond that they are both given root for writing now.
We have to disagree on SC/JS leading all the time. At the moment, JS/EJ is a supporting character in the Wabi story. I'm actually hearing complaints that EJ doesn't have his own story yet. EM, GV, and GG are also leading stories. Hell, I can make an argument that DH is leading the Bristen story to a degree right now.
I think the writers ARE playing with different storylines and trying to integrate as many people as possible and into multiple s/ls. Is it perfect? No. However, I do not think it is as bad as some claim.
