I wonder if tptb have considered using the disaster in Japan as a forerunner to getting Allie and Lucas home from Hong Kong? Any excuse in a storm for me. Just want Lucas back, if Bryan Datillo only.
Lucas is NOT in Japan.....he's in Hong Kong

What happens with Quinn depends on whether he's bad or good, and what other bad guys are staying. I'd say he's out. Although he has a 3yr contract. What do they do with that?
I believe it's every sixteen week rotation the network can decide to cut a contract with the actor/actress. However, in the case of CC it was merely not renewing her contract.
ahh, so the actors are truly guaranteed only 16 weeks at a time.
I thought it was 13 weeks actually.....I remember when they got rid of Shelle, MM had just signed her new contract and she was gone shortly thereafter.
ok, 13 is something I seem to remember too.

Nothing is wrong with it.

A watered down version of Lumi?

If anything they're Lumi on steroids. :D
I was only making a point that you don't need that 'drama' to tell a good story, there are other ways to tell it that can be equally satisfying as long as people are invested in the characters telling the story.

On the Lumi/Ejami comparisson, I don't believe so.....I refer to is as watered down because although they have the kids, they didn't have a basis for at least the first child, and then they threw in the second kid as a bonus. So, they have the kids, the connection with them and made up history via Santeen, not 17 years of history, not a true friendship foundation that they could build their relationship from. Sami can never look at Ej and say that he truly cared about her as a friend during the time he was the black glove, that he wanted the best for her, that he tried to make her a better person. That was never their relationship. Ejami only has 2 years more worth of 'history' than Safe, they are a watered down version of Lumi for sure, at least that is MHO.
I think either camp can come up with scenarios of Ejami and/or Lumi that would work and, to be honest, would probably be better than anything currently on screen. Having said that, I just really want the characters back to who they truly are. Sami conniving & bitchy, EJ smarmy, sexy, grayish villian, & if Lucas comes back, not some clueless, foot stomping, yelling shell of a character. Whatever happens from there, I think I could handle.

This being overun with boring, one note Safe is mind-numbing. I would love to see EJ and Lucas go at it again. I would love to see Lumi as frenemies. I would love to see EJ & Sami bicker and call each other names. Without all the shooting, kidnapping, doppleganger crap I've suffered thru for the past year.
I completely agree. I just want these characters to be who they were before DH decided to destroy them to fit her stupid plots. Is that so much to ask? I use to love all of these people and now I can't stand watching them because I don't even know them anymore. I have every appendage crossed that the new HWs have the talent to write deep, interesting characters and actually know and respect their characters' histories.

That sounds good to me. AS sure is being awfully quiet about all these changes.

I'd love to see Lucas and Ej as frenemies. They've both been on the "Sami wants to make someone else our kids daddy" list.
oh yeah!!! you tried to kill me, i shot you, you "you know" my ex, you had my brother shot, you intruded on my honeymoon, conned my wife away from me... Hey maybe they should go out for a beer... :sarcasm:

Not to mention EJ putting a man into his daughters home who terrified her.

I wonder if they will address those issues you mentioned? Frightening the children was big for me. As much as we are suppose to believe EJ loves his kids why would he put them at risk with Rafe 2? He did send Ali away but what about Johnny? Syd?

EJ was wrong to put Fafe around his kids, but Johnny and Syd weren't scared of him. As I recall, Johnny said he liked Fafe better than the real Rafe.

how could johnny say that?

But yeah, he did, but the guy is an obvious nutbar, Stefano and EJ are aware of that, but it's still ok to torture the children's mother and create a disturbing home environment for them there as long as in the end EJ gets what he wants.

Just like it's still ok for Sami shooting the children's father and creating a disturbing home environment for them there as long as in the end Sami gets what she wants.

I'm not following you - are you asking how Johhny said that he likes Fafe better than Rafe? If so, Johnny noticed that was Rafe was different and said that he likes him even better now, which translates to Johhny liking fake Rafe better than real Rafe. Like I said in my post, EJ was wrong to do what he did with Fafe, but unlike Allie, EJ and Syd were not frightened of him like the poster above me was concerned about. Apparently all you have to do is give them ice cream and they think you are the cat's meow.

ice cream and sprinkles. ;)

So it's ok he scared the life out of Allie. As long as it's not EJ's kids he's scaring. And we are to feel that EJ is a hero because he balked at the idea of stealing Allie - and not for Allie's sake, or Sami's, for Johnny's - again, for something EJ wants. Never mind how it hurts others.

He is also interfering in what was a stable home, consistently. All because he's jealous of the stability that Rafe brought to "HIS" children's lives. Stability that Ej can't bring himself.

Actually if there's one area the writers have been consistent in it is ensuring that EJ never gets what he wants lol

As it should be.

They're both horribly self-absorbed sociopaths, bad parents, unreliable loves and carry a U-Haul of baggage behind them wherever they go.
