Do we even know what is coming up for SWEEPS? That whole thing about the happy catastrophe s/l involving Philip, Chloe, Lucas, Sami, Nicole, and EJ but minus Morgan now is that still going to happen have they scaled it back or scrapping it? Was this supposed to be the Sweeps s/l??? I am so confused!

I really can't wait to hear what this big "happy catastrophe" is...or what Corday thinks a happy catastrophe is. This has been driving me crazy since he said it.

Me too. I keep thinking "catastrope" must refer to one singular event and not the dual pregnancies, as catastrophic as that is to my ability to watch EJ anymore.

How is that possible? Lucas caught her with EJ the night he came home from jail. From that point on, they were apart and barely had scenes most of the summer so I don't think the show has wiggle room at all to go there.

As has been pointed out - sleeping sex or angry sex is possible. But it would be a total retcon at this point if they try to do it. Which is too bad - personally I'd rather Sami be having Lucas's child than EJ's.

I think many are assuming the double pregnancy is a happy catastrophe and that makes sense but my initial thinking was it would be a tragedy of some sort.

I can sort of see that - but the double pregnancy would have zero effect on Philip and Morgan (presuming she was still with the show). And it sounds like the double pregnancy was not something that was planned all along and only recently came to the canvas.

As has been said so many times before, it is really hard to speculate about this stuff with all the backstage upheaval.

Anyone else sick of the whole EJ/Nicole/Sami triangle?
I wouldn't mind a bit of the Sami side disappeared for a while. That would solve a lot!

Sami asks Lucas to claim paternity but he refuses. There's a sad moment between the two of them of how it could have their child. In that conversation, you see their torn feelings and how hard it is for Lucas to let go of the woman he loves - and advise her what to do about her pregnancy with this other man's baby.


That bolded part is interesting. Is it their child and they don't know it?

From that point on, they were apart and barely had scenes most of the summer so I don't think the show has wiggle room at all to go there. They did with Bope and Zack but they had a built in out there with Bo and Hope both being brainwashed at the same time and there being alot of time gaps.
It's possible with the stroke of then pen. You're forgetting Days, the place that allowed a writer to bring back a guy from the dead after he donated his organs.

The show needs a big jolt that has lasting impact and that is powerful. It hasn't had one in ages. It had one with John's death but they reversed it and Shawn's death, while major, didn't do much for story. This would and it would impact many characters. The show needs to take a risk and this is one I think would help the show immensely and take several character in new and fresh directions, which is needed.
I think a bigger jolt would to kill off Marlena.

^That's very true. If they did kill off Marlena for real, I suspect that the DOOL studio would be burnt to a crisp. LOL!

I feel kind of bad for Sami, but seriously....Her and EJ aren't even together. They never have been. They have this connection, yes, but they are not in love! Even EJ said it ... she needs to get over it - did she think her and EJ were just going to be a couple now that she's pregnant (again)? lol.

I honestly think Sami is a moron. She just makes things harder on herself and it really doesn't have to be that way if she'd listen.

The writing is painting Sami to be completely led by her fears. And that makes for an icky-looking Sami to me. (this is coming from someone who loves Sami. But I can still be bugged by her, and am...frequently.)

I think that Phoenix may be onto something. All the signs are there to indicate something huge happening btw Lucas and Sami. I mean more huge than them getting along and not screeching at one another. And I mean more huge than dopey "sleepwalking sex". The writing is giving Lumi all kinds of closure right now, which would be very necessary if something bad was about to happen to Lucas. (Lumi fans would be devastated if they had to lose Lumi AND there had been no closure.)

It's hard for me to fathom that Days would kill Lucas off, even though the drama potential is definitely there. Bryan has a large following, doesn't he? But they certainly are setting the stage for this to happen, imo.

As an Ejami fan, if this were to happen, I really hope that Sami is able to tell EJ that she loves him before something happens to Lucas. If not, Lumis will say to THEIR dying day that the only reason Sami is saying she loves EJ is that Lucas is no longer an option.

Sami looks like a moron because she didn't use a condom.

What is WRONG with these people? And then they're shocked to find out that they're pregnant! Pisses me off!

But isn't that typical for supercouples? During JER's first run, I think Bo, Hope, John, Marlena, Jack, Jen, Carrie, and Austin had a combined IQ of about 80. Apparently, in order to have supercouple angst, you need them to act like dimwits.

Yeah but that was under JER so anything is possible. Days without him is a bit more credible. It's on the save level is any soap nowadays actually :laugh: .

That's kind of hard considering their sex wasn't planned and they were trapped in an elevator. Can't blame him for not having one on him :laugh: .

I know! Especially with Nicole - was he trying to get STD's?!

The stupidity of these characters really cracks me up - but of course, it's such a train wreck I can't turn away.

I agree that something seems to be building. We're getting great Lucas/Sami scenes, but there's no romantic feeling at all. Just friendship tinged with regret for what might have been. That's the formula for tragedy....build him up, make us care, then kill him off. I have disliked Lucas for years, even hated him at tiimes, and the past couple weeks even I have liked him and have hoped he's not leaving.
