I don't know if it was rape. Rape is to take someone against their will and Scarlett was pretty happy the next morning and having great memories of the night before. I know it's been said it was a maritial rape, but in the book and the movie Scarlett's behavior isn't one of a woman who has been raped.
it wasn't rape. It was angry sex.

I'm not questioning how Sami could be seen as having Scarlett-like tendencies. I just have no clue how EJ is Rhett. To me its liked when EJ/Sami are compared to Twilight. I'm not even a fan of Twilight and I can't fathom the comparison.
It's been years since I've read GWTW, but I think there's the part when he's carrying her up the stairs and he's determined to have sex with Scarlett whether she likes it or not, but somewhere before they reach the bedroom he kisses her and she finds herself kissing him back, so by time they've actually started the sex Scarlett does want him. And didn't Days do a storyline when Don Craig forced himself on Marlena (they were married at the time) and Marlena told him to no and to stop?


Rhett apologized the next morning for his actions and Scarlett found absolutely nothing wrong with it. If you've seen the movie she was so happy she was humming, LOL

honestly the couple sami/ej remind of is lawrence/carly from the 90's.
The couple EJ and Sami remind me of the most are the characters played by Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones in "Duel in the Sun." They ended up in a shootout with each other while crawling across a desert!
Now that's a better comparison. :D And JS looks like a young Gregory Peck.

And didn't poor old Mammy come in complaining about her aches and pains, but Scarlett was too busy thinking about last night.

Yes. And after she's raped she compares the two situations.

I don't think any of this is particularly comparable to ejami or safe though, lol.

^^It is more plausible than EJ being compared to him.
I can understand why some people compare EJ/Sami to Rhett/Scarlett .
Scarlett was vain, self-centered and insecure. She tried very hard to live up to the expectations of her society and she had a deep fear that her true self would be discovered. Rhett admires Scarlett's willful nature, and he discovers that they are alike in many ways. With Rhett Scarlett dosent have to hide, it becomes liberating for her. Ashley is a contrast to Rhett. He is a "honarable man" while Rhett is more ruthless and does what he has to do to survive. In the end Scarlett realized that she was chasing a dream with Ashley and that he wasn't who she really wanted.

Comparing anything on this show to a classic of literature and film like GWTW is, imo, like comparing a crude stick-figure drawing to a Renaissance master's painting. Sure, you can say they both depict trees, flowers, buildings, people, whatever. But one will end up at the bottom of a drawer (or a landfill), and the other will be framed and placed in a museum to be admired and appreciated for generations to come.

Every female on the show past and present will be destroyed at the altar of Daniel fucking Jonas before the show FINALLY will get it that NO ONE FUCKING CARES about Daniel or who he is bedding this week!
However, the ptb know the majority of fans dislike the Dr. Sleaze propping destroying women, the ptb aren't doing anything about it.
They simply don't give a damn. SC is their goldenboy, and apparently the ptb believe we should accept whatever they shove down our
throats.
what's so golden about him? TomSell suck big time shoving those kind of characters like Daniel and tossing aside the ones who have been on the show since forever. :shrug:
his tan? :shrug: that's about it and I agree I'm sick of the vets and other actors getting thrown under the bus for TomSels pets :soapbox:
I honestly find NOTHING attractive about the guy. He can get tanned all he likes. He's average as an actor. IMO

but I agree,I miss the vets! esp Drake and Deidre. I know they will be on almost everyday next week then after that who knows...we may see Marlena even LESS. :soapbox:

Maybe my memory is flawed, but pre-2006, I don't remember the show revolving around just two characters or even just a few characters. If someone had asked me back then who the lead characters were, I think I'd have named at least 6 people, maybe more. The last 6-7 years haven't been that way at all.
And the show was much better then...

It's not like Sami wasn't being groomed to lead story pre Ej coming along, she lead many stories, one in particular that featured her on death row.

I have less of an issue with the names and more of an issue with the differences in number. No matter the name or actor, 911 episodes is a lot to acrue in 4 years. Plus there are multiple actors on that second list who haven't/weren't even a part of the show for half the amount of time that sample is taken from and they're ahead of actors who've been around the whole time.

Instead, Sami's been stripped of her Scarlett-ish personality and become a watered-down generic heroine with ni "edge". And EJ has lost his his suave "Rhett-ish" like personality. If they were written like Rhett/Scarlett, I could like it. Sami selfishly prancing around, thinking she wants good-guy Rafe(Ashley), and EJ making HER chase HIM, while remaining his confident, seductive self. Instead EJ has lost his balls, become a generic "good guy", and grovels.

No, this version of EJami is nothing like Rhett and Scarlett. With good writing they could be written like them, but Sami would have to go back to her roots and EJ will have to stop being her lapdog.

They would also have to magically wipe the horrible things Ejami have done to each other from our minds, and having the characters ignoring it, shaking hands on it, or sharing a drink and saying let by gones be by gones won't do the trick.

some have tiny qualities yes like Rhett call Scarlett shit and know exactly who she is so does lucas and just Rhett try to convice Scarlet she can better Ashley and without being pathetic just like brandon

rafe does not fit to Ashleyqualities sami did chase rafe when he wanted someone else and ej does not fit Rhett qualities he being over pathetic and over the top

See, I could buy EJami, even with that stuff between them.....if their personalities were more like Rhett/Scarlett. Instead they've lost the complexity of their characters and become a generic hero/heroine. Which makes them unrecognizable and unwatchable, no matter how pretty JS is to look at.

I just want EJ to go back to his Rhett-like personality. Rhett never worshipped Scarlett. In fact, he called her out several times. Scarlett was flawed and edgy. Sami is no longer written that way. She's matured too much. And I dislike "mature" Sami. I want her back to her Scarlett-ish ways.

I don't really see how EJ became a "generic good guy". I don't see him as Sami's lap dog either. I see EJ as someone who's devoted to their family (children in particular), but that doesn't mean that he can't conduct some underhanded business deal at the same time. He fell inlove with Sami from the very beginning and always tried to get her. Nothing changed there. IMO he's no more of a lap dog than Lucas or Rafe. Heck, Lucas dumped his fiancee and left everything he established in Hong Kong for her. Rafe keeps chasing her IMO to mark his property and so that EJ wouldn't get her. And Sami is written more like a bitch now than she has been in a while instead of being Rafe's doormat.

All I know is that I don't want another rewrite. So far the beginnig and the middle is the same as all the other storylines involving Safe and Ejami. Lumi is non existent, and Lucas is written pathetically. The only good thing about his character is that BD gets paid something. Other than that, they've reduced his character to a glorified extra, which I find abhoring.

Yeah, I WISH EJ would conduct some underhanded business deals, but I see them turning him into a generic hero instead. When's the last time he did anything cool and underhanded? He's become the male Lexie. He's no longer "Rhett".

Sami selfishly prancing around, thinking she wants good-guy Rafe(Ashley), and EJ making HER chase HIM, while remaining his confident, seductive self. Instead EJ has lost his balls, become a generic "good guy", and grovels.

No, this version of EJami is nothing like Rhett and Scarlett. With good writing they could be written like them, but Sami would have to go back to her roots and EJ will have to stop being her lapdog.
I don't really see how EJ became a "generic good guy". I don't see him as Sami's lap dog either. I see EJ as someone who's devoted to their family (children in particular), but that doesn't mean that he can't conduct some underhanded business deal at the same time. He fell inlove with Sami from the very beginning and always tried to get her. Nothing changed there. IMO he's no more of a lap dog than Lucas or Rafe. Heck, Lucas dumped his fiancee and left everything he established in Hong Kong for her. Rafe keeps chasing her IMO to mark his property and so that EJ wouldn't get her. And Sami is written more like a bitch now than she has been in a while instead of being Rafe's doormat.

All I know is that I don't want another rewrite. So far the beginnig and the middle is the same as all the other storylines involving Safe and Ejami. Lumi is non existent, and Lucas is written pathetically. The only good thing about his character is that BD gets paid something. Other than that, they've reduced his character to a glorified extra, which I find abhoring.
It may not mean that, but that's certainly what's happened. Maybe that will change with the upcoming custody stuff, but as of right now, and since Tomlin came back, all EJ is is a generic good guy.

Think you might be able to add Nick and Chloe to that list.

See, Kate is someone like Scarlett. Not a villain like Kristen, but not a heroine like Hope or Marlena. She's the perfect blend of "grey". That's what makes her compelling. And EJ should be the male version of her.
