.....SAMANTHA'S BACK!???????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THEY ARE BRINGING BACK MY SAM?!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOW!?????????????????????

OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Sorry for the FREAK out, but Sam was one of my FAVORITE CHARACTERS IN THE HISTORY OF DAYS!
LoL, you were the first person I thought about as soon as I read this!

Anyway, I'm unsure how I feel about this.

First, I don't trust Higley's writing at all. Second, this is coming completely out of left field. However, I'm intrigued to find out why exactly Samantha is coming back, and what her purpose will be in the storyline. I'm also interested in seeing just how long she'll be around. Is it for a few episodes, a full story arc... or maybe permanently? Either way, I'm really excited for Deidre's performance.

Color me cautiously optimistic for this. I'll definitely tune in for it.

Thanks for posting, Ellie!

I am very excited for Deidre. I hate the way they have Marlena behaving because wishy washy is simply not her. I look forward to her being able to excercise her acting chops like so many Drake fans just love his version of NuJohn (I have grown to hate it).

Marlena does sinister well as in SSK and even when she injected Stefano earlier this year and snuck John out of the hospital. It was great! Maybe that is when I will return to Days as I have no intention of even thinking about watching until Ava leaves.

I don't trust Higley's writing at all,but this one surprised me,now we have 2 Samantha's,Sami will meet her namesake.From what I hear Marlena's twin was not the nicest of people,so Deidre maybe playing not so nice with that part,AWESOME,I LOVE it when Deidre plays naughty she is so ROCKIN with it.
I'm with you. Deidre will no doubt rock the storyline but I just don't trust Higley's writing.
ITA! Deidre was awesome in the SSK and I think she'll be great. But I have absolutely NO faith in Higley.
Me either. But it could be fun if Samantha went after nuJohn. Now that I could get into!

Yup, that's definitely going to be a big problem. Unless there is a change in the writing team, this sl will come with all the problems the current sl's have. But at least this will give Deidre something different to do and it will get us out of the current sl.

Since Stefano wakes up pissed at Marlena, I hope he kidnaps her and replaces her with Samantha.

Samantha taking over Marlena's life would be fabulous to watch. Plus, it'd be understandable for everyone if "Marlena" suddenly started acting peculiar, considering all that she's been through in the last year. I'm also all about that famous J&M yearning.

Marlena/Jawn/Samantha could be fun!

Oh, I definitely think Samantha will go after nuJohn. Bad-Sam is almost like the anti-Marlena, just as nuJohn is like the anti-John. I could see John going after Sam because of their similarity as well as because she reminds him of Marlena. Naturally, that would put Marlena in quite a quandry because she'd have an inner battle of being happy her twin is alive while also having to compete with her for John. If that's the way the story *does* go, color me shocked because it's so logically brilliant, that I'm surprised TPTB even thought of it (and that none of the fans have come up with the idea before).

Let's just say that I am excited, because I only have my fantasies of what could be right now, lol. I have no illusions. Maybe it was the new co-head writers idea? If it stays the way it has been with all the flip flopping etc. I won't be any happier, but since I haven't been disappointed yet with this one, I'll just be happy while it lasts.

Yep! And there are so many good ideas in this thread. Which means Higley probably won't use any of them, lol.

I'm not going to focus on the writing for now. It just makes complete sense to me. Drake is playing two roles, so why not Dee as well? Jawn could fall for Sam, plus with Stefano in the mix who knows what could happen? It also, finally, takes the spotlight off of Ejamicus letting Ali Sweeney take a much deserved backseat to Dee and Drake. All in all, amazing.

Totally agree! But the reason I was focusing on the writing is that so many of Higley's stories have started this way. Great ideas that just go nowhere. So maybe I'll take your idea and not think about the writing now, lol. :smile:

LOL! That's true hops. I also think that even with the writing issues, this is a sl I will find much more enjoyable than the current one. It will certainly be different and I am not sure where this will leave Marlena, but I am eager for it to begin so I can tune in and find out. ;)

Yes, let's all not go negative for a while. Let's just be happy this is going to happen. Thanks for the news, Ellie.

I was just wondering, is there anyone who is as old as me and actually remembers Sam? :biggrin:

Sure, I remember her. The storyline where Sam took over Marlena's life during the time Marlena was with Don Craig was one of Days best storylines. I just wonder how they are going to explain Samantha being alive. They did an autopsy on her for heavens sake. Even in Salem I think that would be hard to live through.

I *vaguely* remember Sam during her original run. However, I really wasn't watching (or paying attention) to Days very regularly until the end of her run when she essentially only made recurring appearances from time to time. My clearest memory is really of her death (well, "death" now. lol)
