We're missing so many good stories with EJ because they refuse to take him out of Safe's orbit.
Or because, even after 6 and a half years, the writers still seem to have no idea who in the hell they want this character to be. Good writers would have established a solid identity for the character a long time ago and generated story from there, but since we haven't had that, EJ changes at the writers' whim to suit whatever story he happens to be in at any given time. Because of that, he's just a hodge-podge mess.

Maybe a stupid questions, but are first weeks of January important for renewal or something? This is the second year in a row that there's some big drama and a bunch of reveals this time of the year and it's not sweeps, so I'm wondering why they're doing that.

2nd year in a row? New Years used to be when lots of big things happened. 2003-04 - Roman was killed at his wedding. 2004/05 - Shawn drove through the Phelle wedding. 2005/06 - Zack Died. 2006/07 - EJ shot John and did whatever you want to call it to Sami. 2007/08 - the audience found out John was alive and Shawn found out about Phelle.

I think they use this time to do something big to start big stories for the new year and lead into February sweeps.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
No, it lasted about three months, which is still a short period of time, but it wasn't three weeks. Regardless of however long it was, EJ showed more character growth within those three months than he has during his entire stint on Days.
ITA. Kristen is seriously showing him up in the scheming/bad behavior dept!
That's not hard to do when the character's basically all talk.
But it used to be such wonderfully delightfully mersmerising talk ... now its just dull.

I miss when Days did crazy events for New Year's. I can remember Days usually being pretty good around the end of December/beginning of January. I think Shawn crashing Belle and Philip's wedding is one of my favorites though. It was so scandalous and awesome.

And I still can't even stomach Chloe's spoilers. Why Nadia Bjorlin agreed to be stuck once again in the vortex of suck that is Dannifer and have her character be further trashed is still beyond me. She really must've needed that paycheck.

Did those stories, too, last into the middle of January? Or am I starting to notice things more in 2013?

Most of them lasted at least through February. Some were part of bigger arcs (like the SSK story and the vendetta).

Also in 2010 they had the Parker reveal at New Years. I actually can't remember what they did last year, lol.

Brady and Kristen's relationship causes issues with Sami.
This is soooo laughable! So help me if Sami says something to Brady along the lines of, "How can you do this to Mom and John!" I will punch my TV!!!!

I am looking forward to the scene where Sami is supposed to lash out at Kristen, however. If Kristen doesn't eat her for breakfast, I'll be sorely disappointed.

This would have been a good opportunity to have Jennifer wake up and get her old personality back (intelligence, wit, discernment, strength, maturity, etc.) But no, I guess we're still stuck with pod-Jennifer, who, if you count the Daysaster explosion, has been in peril/injured at least four times since TomSell came back on board. Ridiculous.

That's why Dan loves her. She's guaranteed to need medical treatment and nothing turns him on more.

If Kristen slaps Sami, I'll never say a bad word about this show for eternity.

How many accidents can Jennifer get into. Hell, her whole body has been operated on in more ways than one! Whats gonna be left of her?

The role of Jennifer Hortons hands is now being played by Charity Rahmer.

Sami is a former shell of herself her true self and has been for a long time the Sami I know love and remember would not take what EJ,Stefano,and Kristen did to her and her family and loved ones over the years lightly and would go into full revenge mode and hate mode and Bitch mode on the Dimeras and would become the Dimeras worst nightmare where she would make the Dimeras pay for what they did to her and her family and make the Dimeras wish they were never born had never messed with her or her family and she would find a way to take them down and destroy them once and for all for Sami hated that Stefano took Marlena away from her at such a young age and practically ruined her life.

Sami would not have taken what EJ did to her, Lucas, her step father John and her Aunt Kayla and Uncle Steve, Lucas, Will and others lightly either and would want to get revenge on the Dimeras EJ,Stefano,and Kristen for what they did to her and her family and would come up with a scheme and plan with Lucas her partner in crime to bring down the Dimeras once and for all and put them out of commision once and for all and not stop untill she did. That would be the old Sami starting to return to her former glory once more. Anyway I wish the old Sami would emerge once more and become the Dimeras worst nightmare for that would be great if that happened once more where we see signs of the old Sami emerging once come to life in Sami once more for I miss that Sami and wish she would emerge once more and were here to stay as well.
