Ej looked so insecure in this episode. I thought I could laugh at him but I got depressed instead

Finally got around to watching today's show..

1. Brady is an idiot.

2. Nick is an ass.

3. OMG Wilson. Their scenes were so good today. Not looking forward to next week.

4. Kristen and Marlena. Best part of the show.

5. If Sami wants Rafe so much why does she keep leading EJ on? Obviously, she, much like Jennifer, likes to have 2 men chasing her at all times.

Maybe Marlena is the one that gets hit -hence the hospital scenes we have been hearing about?

Well, yesterday was better than today but I'm still looking forward to tomorrow. I'm liking the writing for Nicole a lot better now than I have in years. The Safe/Ejami triangle isn't a horrible triangle if you pretend all these characters are different people. Rafe is Rafe, but EJ and Sami are also both basically Rafe. That might be Tomlin's goal. Rafe is in a triangle with Rafe fighting for Rafe. No matter what, Rafe is going to win.
LMAO. Rafe epitomizes GT's character writing or really non-character writing. Everybody is so damn generic. As far as I can tell, he has about four basic characters - the villain, the victim, the hero, and the supporting character. That's pretty much it. Obviously characters rotate which role they are playing based on particular plots, but they still don't have unique personalities. You've got a few gifted actors who are actually able to pull something unique and interesting out of their scenes on ocassion (see AZ and ED yesterday), but even that happens irregularly. For the most part, they are all playing a small number of roles without any distinctive and consistent personalities. It's the Vanilla of our Lives.

honestly sami's actions make me think she likes toying with these mens feelings.she was doing the same thing to lucas last summer too.I just wish there was someone around to call her out on it i rooted for sami when she called out jennifer for it. but now samis turned into what she hated.

Sami has as a character devolved. It's really nuts, because for years Sami was intensely, insanely and all-consumingly about Austin. It may have been misguided, but she wasn't fickle. She was also a person of action. She made things happen. Teenage Sami would have seen through Nicole's ruse and mounted a counter attack.

Okay, Ejami are at their dinner...why did Sami think their dinner sounded like a party? And who eats dinner at 12:30 am.
Thank god Lucas is looking after the kids and she's not paying the babysitter by the hour.

OMG. If they wanted to go with Bristen, they should have pushed that step-mother in-law quote a long time ago, because now I'm basically salivating.
If I could, I would make that my ringtone, lol. :D

I had to come out of the woodwork to LMAO at Tomlin wanting to write a Rafe/Rafe/Rafe triangle. 3 points to Lysie.

Until I read the post you quoted, I thought filters had been turned back on, lol. Now I'm slightly bummed to see they aren't.

When Sami told Ej he has changed all I could think was 'yes he has, into a clown'. Not only does he look like one with that ill fitting bow tie the guy comes across desperate. Yes it was fitting for him to set up a private catered dinner but the scene lacked sexiness. He's lost his edge to play this sappy version and it's downright depressing. Whatever chemistry Sami and Ej may have had is long gone and no amount of candles and close-up staring is going to change that when the characters flop.

ITA!! Whatever heat that was there before was because it was so angsty. Now that its a normal courtship, it feels more awkward than anything. These two cannot do normal. I used to like EJ but I barely recognize him now. I wouldn't call this leading man material. Thank goodness for that EJole scene yesterday LOL
Being that it is always subjective I think it's fair to say that there are still a number of fans that continue to see the chemistry/heat between EJ and Sami. Crappy writing considered - it has always been the chemistry that has kept me interested in them. Sometimes to the point that it actually pisses me off. :laugh:
Yes, I'm one of those viewers who see their unique chemistry and quite frank, it is precisely their chemistry that makes me interested in EJami for one can hardly say that they have had the writing on their side! The thing is that actors can play after any script whatsoever but the chemistry is either there or not!
IMHO the chemistry isn't everything, if the writing is shit then the couple/story falls flat and there goes the potential. Think of it....if the chemistry was everything, JT and AS would have a story....they seem to gave great father/daughter chemistry....

LMFAO with Lysie and the Rafe/Rafe/Rafe triangle that GT is trying to create!!

I really hope Stefano has plans for John and marlena that will lead to a big payoff for them. Perhaps a long lost child.

I liked will calling nick out today. Gabi is a nothing character.

I actually like Nicole. Sami and EJ as romantic lovers are nauseating.

Kristen thinking she's the wronged party is ridiculous but I like that she thinks it. Eileen is a great villainess. She has little to no vulnerability which made her a terrible heroine but she us fab as the crazy lady. And even though she looks hard she has a teriffuc body.

The line about marlena being in her dotage was funny and Nasty and somewhat personal about deidre IMO

I despise this version of EJ every bit as much as I hated him with Tayho and for much of the EJole v. 2.0. If this is the EJami option I get, please reunited Safe like yesterday.

Still enjoying Rafe and Nicole. Mostly I just enjoy this sassy, snarky version of Nicole which has been missing for a long time.

Brady is such a dummy. But John and Marlena should really figure out that the more they tell him that and treat him that way, the more he's going to be defensive. They are playing right into Kristen's hands and they really should be smarter than that. The Kristen/Marlena scenes were great as well. And I loved Kristen's reaction to the fight. Too much fun.

I LOVED Will and Nick's conversation. I love Will confronting Nick about his bigotry, but I also loved Nick telling Will how it works. Nick is absolutely right that Will made a choice and it means that he doesn't have a say in things. If that's not what he wants, then he needs to step up and tell the truth. Again, I like that the writers allow there to be complexity to this and not just good vs. evil. I do definitely sense a custody battle coming down the pike though.

I was wanting to feel sorry for the poor guy. But he looked like such a dork in that big ass bowtie I just started laughing at him.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Part of that time was in a college town, so there were lots of all night places there, as well as Waffle House and Denny's. We were usually not interested in fine dining! ;)
Dude. My college town was dull. Everything closed at 9, lol.
It helps when the college is one of the top party schools.
Look at you - party animal! :rockon:

I thought the EJ and Sami stuff was really sweet today. It's been a while and I always enjoy those two. They even put a little Santeen musical button on it at the end. Le sigh.

Sonny and Will couldn't have looked more thankful to be gay guys than while they were witnessing Nicole's display with EJ. Hilarious!

Great episode, all around. EJ and Sami today? * romantic sigh* Perfection.

And Kristen? I can't get enough. She's deliciously evil. When she taunted Marlena about being her step-MIL I realized that, yes! That is exactly what I want!
