How do we know that Sami loves EJ? I certainly don't know that. She's never told him. She's never said it out loud, even while she is alone. She's certainly never shown him in actions either. I don't think jumping out of the bed naked to chase after another man, moments after fucking EJ, an act of love towards EJ. You never hear Sami talking about a future of any kind that goes beyond co parenting with EJ either. In fact, over the past few days we have heard her exclaim that she still wants nothing to do with EJ.

At least I can get some solace in the fact that the writers haven't taken her completely in to the twilight zone. Knowing (I FF'd through the barf fest, so I can't say I actually watched it lol) that Sami fucked her rapist/terrorist willingly was hard enough to swallow (no pun intended). I just can't relate to this s/l whatsoever.

Nicole at least admits her feelings. We've heard her say a few times now, that she is in love with EJ.

I am so sick of the couple wars too. First it was Lumi/EJami, and now we've been having EJole/EJami wars. I try to stay out of the fray, but its hard to sit by and watch something that just doesn't happen in reality, nor is it something I feel that should be playing out on our screens for the younger girls that watch the show. There is nothing natural or believable about a woman falling in love with the man that raped her and terrorized her/her family and her children for 2+ years.

Some things you just can't suspend belief about. In fact some of their s/l's are down right insulting. This happens to be one of them for me. Stax is another.
Maybe all the stuff you've listed is pretty unbelievable, but I personally don't watch Days for the believeability factor. Days, as well as other tv shows I watch ARE my escape from the insanity of the world I live in. It's solely entertainment for me.

To utilize the word "war" would imply that there is some hostility here and while there is a lot of debating going on, on my part, I'm just giving my opinions and respectfully disagreeing with others. No one here has insulted anyone.
I agree, and anyone (such as the the hypothetical impressionable young girl) who is going to make life decisions based fictional television has no business watching tv at all. There are definitely some things that air that I don't want to see, and that's fine, but if Days is going to have to tailor content to protect the viewers who don't have any common sense, they'd might as well close up shop now, because that would be a very bland show.
Tailor content for a few viewers that lack common sense? I can't even say the number of times that I've seen people posting that Sami really wanted EJ and that it wasn't rape at all.

IMO there are some lines that should not be crossed or the show loses all of its integrity and insults its viewers. DOOL tread into dangerous waters and glossed over a serious topic just to appease a fanbase instead of handling the topic with the care it deserved.

DOOL is sending a message that a victim can fall in love with a man that raped her. Rape is an act of violence. To some of us even the suggestion a rape victim will fall in love or lust with the man that attacked her is OFFENSIVE.

So, what are they trying to say? That it was her fault that it happened? That she wanted it? That an attacker can somehow undo the damage that he did with an "I'm sorry?" and they can go on to have a romantic relationship?

Maybe the message they are sending is that their viewers want what they want and
Well, it happened with Luke & Laura back then and it was controversial then as it is now. Still, it doesn't mean that viewers can't have different perspectives of this particular fictional situation.

There are numerous real life controversial examples I could give you where you and I and others would differ in opinion but that doesn't make either one of our opinions the last say. Truly I don't have the time to sit here and list the examples, especially when the person reading, I'm talking to you ilovemydays, will scan, select and discard what I have to say. Yes, that was a nod to Beverly Hills 90210.

You will have your opinion, others will have theirs, I will have mine and so on and so forth.

However, it would be greatly appreciated if you would not, sitting behind the safety of your computer, point fingers blantly saying that rape is condoned IN THE REAL WORLD!


And I would appreciate if you sitting safetly behind your computer would NOT point fingers at ME.
first of all, I NEVER said rape should be or is condoned in the real world
To the contrary I feel the opposite and that is why I hate EJami so much.

This is an excerpt:

Throughout her entire career, Lynn Parrish, a RAINN spokesperson for America’s largest anti-sexual assault organization pointed out to TVGuide.ca she has never heard of a rapist and a victim fall in love. Ever. Yet, if we are to believe a medium watched primarily by women and written for women, it’s as common as the winter cold.

Additionally, Parrish revealed to me that OLTL never contacted the organization before telling this storyline (The Bold and The Beautiful was the last soap to seek advice from RAINN when Brooke was raped). However, after our interview, Parrish informed me that ABC has agreed to air a rape-themed PSA in the near future.

“There is nothing romantic about rape,” Parrish states matter-of-factly. She adds that whoever writes a romance between a rapist and its victim under any circumstances clearly doesn’t understand rape nor violence — and probably shouldn’t be writing about it.

~ I'm happy for Nicole, I hope that EJ gets his head out of his ass. I also hope the same for Sami ... the only thing she seems to be clear on (and always has been) is that she is NOT in love with EJ, nor does she want to be in a relationship with him. I hope she sticks to her guns this time instead of allowing herself to be manipulated further.

If you think less of Nicole for pursuing EJ than what do you think about EJ chasing after Sami? At least EJ has said on a number of occasions that he wanted to see where a relationship with Niole will lead. Sami has told EJ to his face that she doesn't want him, will never love him and she will always love Lucas. EJ pursued her when she was engaged to Austin, engaged to Lucas, married to Lucas and pining for Lucas. What does that say about EJ?



My point is that no one in Salem is behaving intelligently. And that includes EJ.

I don't think less of Nicole because of it. I hate her, but that's not why. I expect stupidity from Days characters. It's great when it doesn't happen, but it doesn't bother me when it does.

That said, I do think there's a difference between EJ and Nicole. First of all, they started very differently. Second, EJ never convinced himself that Sami didn't have feelings for Austin or Lucas. He went into this with his eyes wide open. Moving on would definately be the smart thing for EJ to do in this situation. But sometimes the heart has a mind of its own...

I don't think there are too many intelligent people in Salem. Do you realize neither one of these women realized they were pregnant for their entire first trimester? I realize that Nicole thought she couldn't get pregnant, but still....

And as far as EJ's concerned--Nicole's a moron for going after EJ when she knows how he felt about Sami. Regardless of what he says now, she has to know that EJ's not over Sami. And she actually thought he'd be happy she's pregnant? Please. Then there are the little hints she dropped to EJ last week about Trent being out of the picture...I'm sure she's not guilty, but it was still a very stupid thing to do. I won't even go into how stupid it is to assume you're divorced when you haven't signed divorce papers.

Sami's an idiot for trying to keep her pregnancy from EJ. Not initially, but buying new clothes? What does she plan to do when the baby's born? Or maybe she thinks she can hide a live newborn?


But this is days, where the only time any character is allowed to have more than one brain cell is when they're veering to the darker side of gray. At this point, I'd be worried if my favorite started to show too many signs of intelligence. Don't get me wrong--I'd love it if a new writer made the characters actually behave somewhat intelligently, but I'm not holding out too much hope.



Fuzzy, I have to apologize to you. My point that it is hypocritical to call Nicole stupid for pursuing EJ is only valid if you are an EJami fan and there was nothing in your post to suggest that you are pro-EJami.

Again, my apologies for reading something into your post that wasn't there.

You don't have to apologize to me! I wasn't offended. Your reply was a bit off-point, but that's probably my fault for being unclear.

For the record, I do like Ejami. I agree that EJ looked stupid for continuing to pursue Sami for two years. But if I only liked smart characters, I wouldn't have anyone left to root for. That was my original point. Sami may do stupid things, but so does Nicole, and, since you brought it up, so does EJ. And so does every single other character in Salem with the possible exceptions of Victor, Stephano, and Alice Horton.

I'm not sure where the hypocracy comes in, but I'm sure I've been guilty of it at some point. It's part of why I enjoy reading other people's thoughts on the show. I know I see the show one way, and this gives me a chance to see it through another perspective. And I appreciate you giving me that chance.

Well, you and a lot of other people, judging from what I see on some other boards. ;) With the work she's doing, I'd hate to see Nicole get thrown under the bus for EJami, although some think Sami has been thrown under the bus for EJole. Maybe they should stop all this bus throwing-under and just let the characters be themselves, and may the best woman win!! :D
I just can't get worked up over any certain couple because, who knows when Dena will piss off the wrong person finally and get fired. Or, when the wrong writer or producer pisses Dena off and gets fired. Or when an actor gets fed up and leaves. Days is just not stable enough to bank on anything except that they probably don't have the guts to fire Frances anymore.
