IMO I'm not sure the "rape" is the only thing that's holding them back.

Yeah, I'm not even going to compare rape to adultery. Both are wrong but one is an encounter of two CONSENTING adults and one is an crime of violence and power. They are NOT equal....you can go to jail for rape....but not adultery.....
I don't have issues with rape stories on soaps. Unfortunately rape is a part of real life and soaps SHOULD tackle real life issues as part of stories they depict.....my main issue is when they try to glorify rape, reward a rapist, sweep the rape under the rug, whitewash the characters that committed it and then try to write it as a romance....it's vile and disgusting and I just hope that Days doesn't ONCE AGAIN go down that road here with Kristen and Eric.....because if that is what they are planning, then it's beyond ridiculous and I've hung on after the most disgusting storyline IMHO that Days has ever depicted but if they go there again with Eric and Kristen then I just might turn off the tv and forget about Days altogether.
The thing is the writers wasn´t planning on Writing a lovestory between a rapist and a victim or to whitewash it, they failed to see the potentiell in Ejami as a couple before it was to late. Soaps dreams of finding a rating gold couple and they found it in Ejami but to late. And while Sami was a victim I feel like so are JS and AS since they got stuck between fanbases because of it, and I know JS is sick of hearing about and getting hatemails, and even getting psysical getting attacked out on the street.
Again, chemistry is subjective. Others see the chemistry and ratings gold that soaps dream of between Lumi, EJole, and Safe. Ejami are together right now, and the ratings are not gold.
I meant they would have been gold if not for the rape.
