Count me in among those EJ fans who can't believe what's happened to him...

I can't see why actors can't have preferences. Sure, they have to act out what's in the script, but they are entitled to preferences just like anyone else. So I can believe that AS loved Lumi and JS loves Ejami and Ejole.
I can't even about Ejaby. The actors are probably scratching their heads... JS looks like her father.
What makes you think the actors are scratching their heads? I have seen nothing but them trying to sell this story and they are making a pretty good effort at it. I think they are succeeding too because some like ME, who have NEVER, EVER liked Ej in ANY pairing are seeing something to like....that is a success on it's own right.
I can't think of one reason for two actors that apparently want to be employed and in front burner storylines to be scratching their heads with this story....
Who is to say for every person like you who is enjoying EJ now, there isn't an EJ fan from before who is no longer a fan because of his actions in this story? I'm not even talking EJami only shippers. I'm talking those EJ fans who have enjoyed him in several pairings because they are a fan of his character but who can't tolerate his recent behavior. Like I mean, what if it's a wash with those people falling off the EJ fan bandwagon? And what if some of these people have been longtime fans.
It's not automatically great just because some 'new' fans are being garnered from this story. It happens with soap characters but it's not always a good thing. So, gaining new fans in and of itself is not necessarily the whole picture.
I'd still bet the farm JS scratched his head a couple times for this story. He's almost always been front burner so that's nothing new for him. He still cares about story even though it's his job to roll with whatever they give him.
And I'm sorry, but as far as I can see the only actor who is selling this storyline is KM. JS was very vague and in the most recent interviews very brief and wishy washy. He seems to be more excited about the upcoming storylines, so we'll see...
I can't say that I like a couple because I hate another. I just hate this version of EJ. It reminds me of a man going through his midlife crisis. I coulc probably accept that if EJ wasn't supposed to be in his mid-thirties. But then again, maybe he's having his early.
