I've heard JS say a couple times that he likes it when EJ is sweet to Sami but a dick to everybody else, so maybe that's what he thinks is being written for EJ right now. And i agree with him to some degree, but I think the EJ that isn't around Sami could be a little darker. Maybe more of that is coming. :shrug:

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
IDK, I'm starting to think it's more :blah: :blah: :blah:
than anything.....didn't one of them (I forgot now) say a while ago in an interview that Ejami would be getting darker....and if by 'darker' they mean Sami saying to Ej while she's fucking him, 'I want Nick Fallon gone' then that's just stupid.....
I have a very, very hard time thinking that James who has gone on record more than once saying he prefers playing the darker Ej would like, never mind love this current version of EJ. He's not interesting, he's not doing anything particularly EJ like and he's actually pretty boring.....again like it always happens with ANY guy that is paired with Sami....SHE is the focus of the story, the guy (whomever he is) runs around in circles around her.
JS said their dynamic would change during a discussion about a problem while they were in bed, and it did they started scheming after that, anyway just because JS prefers bad EJ doesn´t mean he doesn´t like good EJ either way he has seemed happy in interview about them finally doing Ejami. He did say in an interview last fall It´s about time for Ejami, and he was right.
The dynamic didn't change, they didn't do any scheming...they approached Stefano....IMHO that isn't scheming...if they would have done some scheming then I would have understood that quote from James, but they didn't so I'm still puzzled.
I still don't understand how you can go on record and say you prefer playing the more darker Ej and then say you are enjoying the Ej that is on screen now. IMHO, it would have made more sense for him to say, 'I enjoy Ejami and I think Sami makes Ej happy but I would love them to continue to write Ejami while they don't change EJ to make Ejami work'....or something like that.....
As to JS knowing his character, I tend to agree with Lysie on this one. There has been so many versions of EJ under all the writing regimes that I think it's hard for anybody to claim they know the "real EJ." Like the rest of us, I think he simpy has the version of EJ that he prefers and calls that the real EJ. And I think his version of the "real EJ" is just as accurate as any of ours.
@Lysie, in addition to being excited about this upcoming story, I think JS may have been talking the show overall when he was so excited about what he taped. And I tend to agree with him that the show over the last couple of months has been really good soap. He was obviously excited about this Sami shooting story coming up too and so far, I agree with him that it's good stuff.
