In 2009 I think a lot of Nicole's insecurities were heightened by the fact that she was hiding one huge bonanza of a secret and they needed to keep the tension up between them.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
That is actually not true. He has always praised his female acting partners and tried to get behind most of his pairings, EJaylor the exception, I just think that he formed this character so heavily on the premise that Sami is the one for EJ that he never gets away from that.
It's not disrespectful to other actors or storylines, I'm sure they all know the deal, hell Nicole ALWAYS called EJ on it.
Oddly I'm defending the guy in this case but he is definitely not a promotional genius.
I think it would make more sense if JS had problems getting away from the premise that Sami is the one for EJ if it werenīt for Ejamiīs bad history that has made it hard to pair them, or if he didnīt like working AZ, but it seems like he does and then I could get behind Ejole too. I have liked them in scenes too. What orginally gave me doubts about the pairing was the thought of JS or AZ not being happy about the pairing, and then I didnīt want them together, but that doesnīt seem to be the case but just me getting the wrong impression.
After rewatching some scenes from 2009 I think it make sense why JS would have problems getting away from the premise that EJ loves Sami the writers wouldnīt let him, Nicole was insecure a lot about EJīs feelings for Sami in 2009 and there are scenes where EJ still seems inlove/obssessed with Sami. There are Ejole scenes that I like but I canīt feel the love between them when Nicole gets insecure. I like Nicoleīs outburst in this scene and bad EJ in her nightmare but I get the sense that EJ isnīt over Sami. So if they were to get back to Ejole they need to get rid of Nicoleīs insecurities for me to be able to buy them.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljzbKkPOvN4
I felt that they had really moved away from that in 2011 Ej and Nicole. I felt that was more about EJ's place in his kids life not being usurped by Rafe not his overwhelming desire to have Sami. It was more an introduction into how well EJ and Nicole could work as a team, how she could deliver to him the life he wanted and his petty insecurities about not being able to control her and being scared of being taken advantage of again if he let her into his life.
And I didn't feel he had any lingering love left for Sami for end of 2011 and start of 2012.
To me he was almost punishing himself by being with Sami for griefsex.
But that was just me.
Turns out Nicole was right.
All her suspicions and delusions were right on the money.
The only problem for me is I now don't believe a word EJ says to anyone.
Which means there is not really to much point me being invested in his feelings.
The problem for EJole isn't Nicole's insecurities it's the complete trashing of EJ as a character with any redeeming qualities " except for deep pockets, movie star good looks and being phenomenal in bed".
