I have always thought Sami wanted to explore things with Ej, but she did not want seem selfish by breaking her marriage and her family, so she used the vendetta. That way she can still be the heroine and taste Dimera forbidden apple.

The forbidden apple she was tasting was Lucas. She snuck out after marrying EJ to have sex with Lucas. She didn't want the guy that raped her.

Well, she did not want to want the forbidden apple, but evidently she could not help herself and ended up a big chunk of it just a few months later.

I am not going to fall for the rape bait when we are having such a nice discussion. :biggrin: That horse has been dead.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepwait...Sami's entire fucking excuse for not being with Ej to begin with and trying to make it work with Rafe was that she cares what her family thought....so it's either...or...we can't have it both ways.
LOL, I actually agree with the first part of your post. I never bought her excuse that she was marrying Ej to end the vendetta. It was a good excuse though. She got to play the martyr and gain her family gratitute/respect while doing exactly what she wanted to.

I have always thought Sami wanted to explore things with Ej, but she did not want seem selfish by breaking her marriage and her family, so she used the vendetta. That way she can still be the heroine and taste Dimera forbidden apple.

As far as Sami not caring about her family opinion, I think she always has even when she was pulling her crazy stunts. Sami has always wanted to be with the good guy so she can be respectable and accepted by her family and the rest of the town.

That is why she wanted Austin, then new and improved Lucas and of course Rafe the ultimate good guy. When she was with those people, her family did approve of her and they were proud of her. She was able to fit in and she even got to be smug and judgmental.
Yeah, this just isn't true at all. They didn't approve and she still acted like she didn't fit in. They were as supportive then as now but they absolutely didn't approve.

Well maybe not Austin, but I think they approved of Lucas. Marlena kept reminding Sami just how lucky she was that Lucas forgave her.

I know they worship the very ground Rafe work on and thought Sami was sooooo lucky to have Rafe even after he fell in love with Carrie.

In all honesty, I don't think Sami would ever be OK with Ej hurting a member of her family. She loves them too and it would be a deal breaker. Ej is well aware of that. At the same time, she knows what he has done in the past and she chose to move past it. What is done is done, nothing can change that.

I agree family issues will always be a big challenge for them in both sides. Stephano and Kristen can not stand Sami and we all know how the Bradys feel about Ej. Tons of story potential there. Good drama too.

The last thing I want is for Ejami to become one of Salem perfect couple. That is not them. Those two are deeply flawed and they will mess up, fight, break up and hopefully have steamy make up sex. As long as they are in love and committed to one another, I say bring it on.

You mentioned Jack before, I used to be huge Jack fan and J & J fan. I was totally obsessed with the character until...he was redeemed. I loved the redemption storuy, then I lost interest because his flaws and shortcomings were what made him fascinating to me. Once he became a generic good guy, though I still like him, he was not as captivating as he once was.

The journey and the struggle to be a better version of oneself is the best part of the story for me. I don't ever want Ej to become a good guy. I want him to inspire to be a better person for his family, but I don' necessarily want him to succeed. Ej should be completely devoted to his Samantha and his kids and preserve his edges by being a bastard to everyone else. Ej is a work in progress and so is Sami.
That's what I'm saying. He can still be EJ, but be sorry for a thing or two that he's done to key members of Sami's family. He knows they didn't deserve the things he did. He can be sorry for that. Why not?

They didn't approve of Lucas. They came around to him eventually but they were not happy about them even spending time together. Most of her family wasn't around when she started dating Rafe, but Roman and Bo didn't like him until after he revealed the baby switch. Roman didn't like him so much that he tried to have him sent out of state.
thank you - I remembered them not approving of Lucas as well

This conversation reminds me of the saying "never let facts get in the way of a good story."

Sami stays away from the man she wants to make her family happy. That sound nothing like Sami. She has never done that in all her time in salem. In fact all of her couplings involve the exact opposite. But the show just doesnt want to say what makes sense, she kept turning down Ej because he is an evil bastard that victimized her and her family and all we know of Sami she would actually vow vengeance on a person like that not love.

But who needs continuity. The story is Sami all of a sudden needed her family's aapproval so badly that she denied her own desires.

While we're at it, lets say Sami forgave Ej for victimzing her and her famoly because she believes in the power of forgiveness and love. Even though it took Sami a decade to forgive Lucas for the war that she started and she still hasn't forgiven her mother totally for cheating with John.

Maybe she doesn't love her family as much as she loves Ej?... uh... wait... but she does love them so much that she stayed away from her heart's desire to make them happy...uhhh... but not enough to forgive them as quickly and constantly as she forgives all of Ej's misdeeds towards her and the family she loves so much...

Yeeeeeaaaaah... ohkay.
