you've seen past writing on this show Tom.....you've seen couples break up and they are longing from the second the break up happens, even if they are pissed off at one another for whatever reason, you still see it...there is no reason this show couldn't have put that into it now..at this stage of her being pissed...that is what I mean...it doesn't have to be in that stage of the story to show that type of writing. I think it would have a more powerful effect if they would have her put her foot down for real....but that is just my personal preference....that aside, there is no reason the show couldn't incorporate some of that writing...instead they have her keep a secret too....because they find that necessary, WHY?

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepI think it goes like this: if you don't like Ejami, everything is a reason for them to break up.
You are right, I worded that initial sentence wrong. It should be:
For some people who don't like Ejami, everything is reason to break up.
Or, more to the point, Everything is a reason to break up for some people who don't like Ejami.
I respect your opinion and the way you set it out even though I don't agree with it. Although I do agree that Days does love a lather-rinse-repeat. I wish Sami and EJ had had this fight three weeks ago but I find that true of every couple on this show almost ever. The writing will have them prioritizing a mani-pedi over a major discussion.
lol..on the mani-pedi....
Yeah, it seems they hold onto the big blow up fights and it would have made absolute sense to have this blow up fight the minute she found out he knew before the wedding and did nothing. That was the time to have Sami call him every name in the book and leave the Mansion, give back the ring even...years ago that would have happened...then this time in between would be one or the other longing to be together, running into each other and the viewers would see them missing one another, etc. As it stands now because Sami hasn't moved out and because nothing has been resolved they continue to coexist in the Dimansion but the scenes IMHO aren't really coming across as longing or loving. The only thing I even saw a hint of that that was her looking over and realizing he wasn't laying next to her.....but how long has it been since the day she found out he knew? It's been a while....I don't like it but I can appreciate good writing if done even if it's for a couple I don't like....Ejami IMHO isn't being written well, and yesterday she really treated him more like an annoyance that anything else.
But again, I simply don't think they're at that stage in the story yet. There isn't a ton of longing and loving at this stage because Sami is pissed at him. She's pissed that he didn't trust her enough to tell her the truth. She's pissed that he doesn't seem to give a shit about Eric. She's pissed that keeping secrets has become a pattern for him again. Up until last month, she's been forgiving him for his untruths rather quickly, but she's finally putting her foot down for more than 5 minutes. However, that doesn't mean that she's ready to call it quits and move out YET. I think they will eventually get there, but at the moment, she seems willing to give him one more chance (assuming that's how the fight the week of 12/9 ends). Now once she learns that EJ knew about the drugging, then all bets are off and I think a break-up is likely to happen. But as it stands now, she's simply pissed and on alert, but not quite ready to throw in the towel.
