SOD/SOW: Sami and Rafe reunite!; Nov 10th issues; Summary of Articles

Yeah Id say we know much more about Rafe then we did about EJ during his first year.
All I recall knowing when he arrived was...
He was English and went by the name of EJ Wells.
And was a Racecar driver who blinked constantly
He was Obsessed with Sami
And, Looked good in a towel
.................?????????????????

That about covers it.

A characters history takes time to build, They are doing a great job with Rafe and are finally about to integrate him with others... My opinion He and Sami are on the path to being the new Supercouple and great love story of Salem.

All the signs point to Safe.
The flashbacks, the dreams, Carly is comparing him to Bo without even knowing him.
The attempts on his life, His struggle to do anything for the woman he loves.
All signs of a great soap love.

EJ is NOT being redeemed , Now he has become a Major "Drug Dealer Kingpin"
In the past Drugs were always "Beneath, and Off limits" for Victor and Stephano.. Times have changed though I guess.

EJ may harbor feelings for Sami, but they are not returned, If they force her to again be ith EJ to have access to Sydney it will only be a repeat of EJ forcing himself on her and keeping her an emotional prisoner.

Not getting into Safe vs. Ejami for the moment, but it's nonsense to claim that drugs were "beneath and off limits" for Victor and Stefano in the past. Victor came to Salem in the 80s a straight up mobster making his money off drugs and porn/prostitution. Stefano was a drug runner in the 80s too. It was part of the myriad criminal activities Roman Brady originally attempted to bust him for back then.
Don't start getting all technical with facts and history and messy stuff like that. :laugh:
:omg:
Especially when "facts" are picked at like a chicken at dinner time just to suit ones preference.

The FACT is Sami does not love or want to be with Ej
The FACT is Sami has voiced repeatedly her Love for Rafe, and her desire to be with him, a thing she has NEVER done with EJ. (Another FACT)
The FACT is ... ALL signs pont to Safe if ones looks back in History at the best love stories, and how couples are built and certain aspects such as flashback, dreams of their times together, or reunions yet to happen... and such. :rockon:

So if Facts are going to be adhered to perhaps its best not to pick and choose just so one can be vaugely insulting for the fun of it. :shame:
Im not saying that drug accusations were never laid at their feet but numerous times it was stated that Victor and Stephano didnt deal in drugs as it wasnt their style.. Stories change, History changes Im not denying that it happened just stating what I remember.. I dont claim to remember every episode or storyline, And so I dont dispute the truth, or "facts" of what happened. There was a time growing up when I only watched sporadically So im sure I missed things. :laugh:

And was still more riveting and interesting than Rafe is after a year. I find him boring and completely predictible and being propped more than a camera on a tripod.

Galen Gering was fine on Passions but it isn't translating to DAYS.
Well, He is still on your screen so you should be happy.
I dont share your opinion of Galen and enjoy his scenes a great deal. I love his style and personality and Good Guy qualities, and I love his devotion to Sami an their Love story.
I see no reason for Sami or the rest of us to be miserable keeping 2 people who dont belong together.

I found him (EJ) anything but riveting, though he has improved and stopped his constant blinking that drove me nuts. I like him best NOT with Sami and being his evil self.. when he tries to be "Good EJ" HE BORES me to tears, He even LOOKS boring.. Talk about your snorefest.. Uggghhhh..

I'm totally an Ejami fan, but it would not surprise me if TPTB decided to go with a noncontroversial pairing for Sami, after the Lumi v. Ejami "fan wars." If the Boards are any indication (I'm not sure if they are), very few people are passionate about Safe--either pro or con. So I could see them going with the least objectionable pairing, even if no one is really excited about them. I hope that's not what they're doing, but I could see it happening, at least for awhile.
This kinda makes Safe look like some sort of "compromise" I think they are much more then that.
This board is certainly not Pro Safe.. The NBC boards have a strong Safe following.. More importantly to NBC though The ratings *With Safe* are much higher and they obviously have been getting great feedback on the couple.
The Internet Soap board fans are really only a fraction of the viewers.. Most people I know who watch soaps regularly have never even seen a Soap board.

I have no doubt that Sami will somehow end up in EJ's grip at some point but it will only be for the purpose of Rafe rescuing her, or reuninting with her. Rafe is the Man she loves and is "In Love" with, Lucas is the man she loved and will always love.. He was her young love , Rafe is her future.
EJ.. is her nightmare who she is tied to through Johnny.. Even Marlena at times had fond feelings for Stephano, but underneath it all she hated him.

I have no problem though with those who wish to hang on to that elusive dream of Ejami, even though any remote chance they had is based in the past.. and I say remote because quite onestly I hear all the time about how "EJ" still loves Sami.. But Love cant be one sided.. Sami does NOT love EJ, even if she feels sorry for him at times, or compassion, That does not equal LOVE .. even if she considered a marriage to him because she was pregnant.. that does not equal real love.. Even if out of lonliness, anger, and frustration she gave into 1 night of passion (A night even SHE called just sex).. That does not equal LOVE.


Sami and Rafe LOVE eachother.. that is not debatable.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep She may reach an understanding with him for the kids' sake, but that is not love. It is a compromise to make the kids' lives better.
*light bulb clicks on* Ahhhhh...okay. I see now. THIS is what all the frantic Safe pimping has been about these past few days? The spoiler that Sami and EJ come to an understanding and then go mourn together at Grace's grave. It's all making so much more sense now. :$
I am so glad it did!!!! Gosh, I must have missed all the frantic SAFE pimping. SAFE doesn't need to be pimped-- they are the rooting couple on DAYS!!!!
Oh no doubt...you guys are certainly rooting for Safe. It was just odd to me - I've been out of town the past several days with no internet access and I come back to see all this frenetic posting in the thread from Safe fans that seem to spend so much time comparing Rafe to EJ and Safe to EJami. Maybe it's always like that and I miss it because I'm in the thick of it - but it just hit me as I was reading through this to catch up that it seems odd to me that the Safe fans would even want to talk about EJ and/or EJami - particularly this week. I mean, the article that this thread is supposed to be about is the Safe reunion and by and large most of what I see are the Safe fans going over and over why Rafe is better than EJ or why Safe is better than EJami, in your opinions. Other than the first few pages there has been little discussion about the upcoming reunion - it's almost all about why Sami should be with Rafe over EJ (in your opinions).

Then your post brought it home to me. Mixed in with the Safe reunion we're seeing all these little juicy EJami nuggets. Sami goes to see EJ...EJ admits to Sami that he can never stay mad at her...Sami and EJ go together to visit Grace's grave and mourn her together. So rather than just celebrate that your couple gets to be back together for however long it lasts it seems there is concern about explaining why the EJami scenes don't/won't mean anything. That's what is making more sense to me now. :)
My post had nothing to do with that as I didnt know anything about it.
If *I* post anything in relation to Ej?Rafe?Sami its almost always in response to Ejami "pimping" and or Safe insults, or things that excite me about my favorite couple.

Im not afraid of Sami pairing with EJ willingly.... As I never see it happening.

Great "facts." But my opinion is that I don't think you know the difference between fact and opinion.

I'm of one opinion on how the story should go, has gone and is going regarding Sami's love interests and you are of another.

That Victor and Stefano came to Salem as mobsters who have been involved in the drug trade in the past is FACT.

That I chose not to engage on the Safe vs. Ejami aspect of your post wasn't so I could "pick and choose" facts so as to be "vaguely insulting" but simply was me commenting on the actual history of Victor and Stefano as it pertains to the current drug storyline on the show which I wanted to discuss, and I ignored the Safe vs. EJami aspect of your post so as to attempt to avoid exactly the sort of tedious clusterfuck of shipping wars that have filled up the last three pages.

Sorry Rhi if my posting about Victor and Stefano somehow provoked this nonsense.
Actually my post as quoted was a response to angmc's post, And I didnt dispute your facts regarding Victor and Stephano. As for the rest... Our opinions about Safe, and Ejami are clearly different

nuff said.

Maybe everybody just needs, like, some soothing herbal tea and some pictures of Brady shirtless? Something which we can all agree on?
I see where you are going with this...but it will likely will just turn in to a debate as to whether we want a shirtless Brady, Rafe, EJ, Lucas, Bo, Nathan, Philip, Victor, Stefano... :lol:

Nope ... I want a shirtless Drake Hogestyn
