I'm absolutely loving the Lucas/Sami interactions today. IMO, THIS is the perfect version of these two characters & their relationship -- brutally honest with one another, snarky/sniping, kinda petty, but still ultimately on good terms/friendly and most definitely on the same side of what matters. This WORKS and I'd really love to see more of this.
I agree. I was a big fan of their romance back in the day, but they're friends now. They love each other. As friends. They're honest with each other. They are there for each other. Sami needs a friend and confidant, and I think Lucas fills that role perfectly. More, please.

I loved that underscore they used under the Will/Rafe scene. IMO, it sounded very much like something Marty Davich would've used back in the day.

Well, whaddya know! There's Lucas. Going to see Sami. About their son. The way some people talk, you'd think he hadn't been on screen for 2 months, not 2 days/episodes and wasn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never.
Em, no that's not it. I mean, yes I don't know if and when he will be seen again. I mean, I knew this was coming from spoilers, and from what I have read there isn't another mention of him in the next few weeks, but that is spoilers. But that it's taken THIS LONG for Lucas and Sami to have a conversation about Will. And the first things out of Sami's mouth are, the kids are all at sleepovers - not even CONSIDERING that Will's situation might be a timely topic of discussion for she and Lucas together, his parents. It's not that I worry he isn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never. I mean, I do, as all signs indicate that, but whatever. It's that given who he is, that he is Will's father, that he and Sami were once, you know, married and together, that they were friends, that they have a history, he is only a marginal figure in this storyline. I know the storyline is nascent, and if the writers are more interested in telling other stories, that is fine. But that is what is upsetting. And here Lucas is, immediately talking about Ejami. B/c that is all that really matters, right? Not that I blame him for making the observations he's making. But that is just me maybe.

The way some ppl talk, this is the concern - the frustration that it makes perfect sense for Lucas to be more of a participant in the story, and he is relegated to the sidelines (other than the great convos with Will last week, but again those were isolated. Once they were done, he was just gone). Trust me, if in a few weeks he does become a very active, involved participant, I will be shouting from the rooftops with glee, admitting I had jumped to conclusions too soon. But I suspect that won't be happening.
From what was mentioned on yesterday's show, this is the day after the wedding. So Lucas waiting til the next day (or even the next day - not 100% sure) is not too long of a wait for him to discuss with this Sami. And considering Will JUST left her place, NOW is a good time for Lucas and Sami to talk. She just got a bit sidetracked, bu EJ stopping by...I can't blame her.

As usual, we are ALL suffering from the old 2/3 weeks real time = one Salem day. Seems like it's always been this way.

ITA....it's more about having the scenes play out that should have played out earlier in the week or last week, but instead other people get exchanges that pretty much belonged to Will's parents....
Lucas got to talk to Will first before ANYONE else right after the truth came out and Will bolted from the church. Then, everyone else got to have conversations with him. In fact, Lucas got probably the most meaningful talk with Will because he was the first to read him the riot act and try to get him to step up.

Could they stand to involve Lucas more? Sure. However, they've involved him enough thus far where it can be said they've played that beat. The only interaction lacking here is Kate. We could use more of her involvement but, outside of that, they've done a fine job across the board. They are even focusing on Sonny, Justin, and Adrienne and making sure that side of it is represented.

And I'm not bothered it took this long for Sami and Lucas to talk about it. It's only been one day in Salem time and considering the current state of their relationship (which is civil but not exactly a relationship in which they seek each other out unless they have to), it makes sense for it not to happen until one of them resigned themselves to finally reaching out to the other because they realize they have to talk things over at some point.
I didn't say Lucas didn't get a chance to talk to Will. He did, and I was so glad for that, and I agree that his conversation with his son was meaningful. It made me so happy.

I will just disagree with you about the time it's taken Lucas and Sami to talk about Will. I just flat out disagree. I feel they should have talked right away. And not just a few words of lets support our son. I don't think I am wrong in this, and I am sticking by it. Resign themselves that they have to to talk to each other about Will? I don't think so.

It has only been a day or two, which is why I also said the story was still nascent (post reveal). But I just have a hunch this is the last we will be seeing Lucas in any capacity in the story for awhile. If I am wrong, fantastic.

No, I realize it hasn't been a week. I still think that it should have been right away. Don't agree with me, no one else seems to. But that is what I feel. The show has been more interested in telling the Rafe, Sami, EJ drama story first - which is fine, but I disagree with those priorities. And if this is the last we see of them discussing or playing any role in Will's current storyline together, or the last time for awhile, I will be disappointed.

Whoah, anyone else notice that Gabi's nails went from maroony brown in the hospital, to baby blue in her convo with Abby? Either Gabi is more obsessed with nail polish than I am, or the continuity ppl fell asleep today.

My main complaint is that Will's parents didn't get to talking about this before today, and then when he shows up she sort of forgot that she called him to specifically talk about this. Yeah, it's only two days after the wedding at most, but she still got to talking to virtually everyone but Lucas about this issue, when IMHO she or Lucas should have sought each other out to discuss exactly what went on before. I don't need a romantic connection with Lumi anymore, but it's obvious (at least to me) that there is an attempt to not have them share ANY scenes, even when it makes sense....the last Lumi scene (minus the St. Lukes Christmas scenes with no dialogue) was way back in October...I might be wrong but it just feels like they couldn't care less to actually have him around much less have him share screen time with Sami....so why should I even think that they are going to include him in this story much at all....and he absolutely belongs.....I agree about Kate though, she's the one that truly needs to start weighing in now.

Team Lucas all the way! He doesn't take anything from Sami and calls it as he sees it ... good for him.

EJ played Sami like a vioin today but in the end he's going to get played because Sami will have sex with him because of a fight she had with Rafe. I love to see the player get played!

Nick is just a constant mass of scheming and plotting the next move - I'd think he'd give Stefano a run for his money at a game of chess.

Loved how Will just beamed when talking to Rafe about the baby. Really liked the Rafe and Will conversation today.

I really loved the Rafe and Will convo too. It's like without Sami's craziness, and after letting things settle, Rafe sees how in love with his child Will is. Those were nice scenes. I just suspect Nick will try to poison the well again, and will likely succeed.

Not only that, but Sami is the one who called Lucas and asked when he'd be available to discuss Will, so it's not like she didn't want his input.

Another good episode today, except that it wasn't as soapy as it could have been since everyone decided to be adults. I know every day can't be filled with drama and schemes, but it would be nice if they were lol.

I'm very glad to see a bedroom set appear. Hopefully that's for ejami so they don't have to use that nasty couch.

Wilson's push and pull is so good right now.

It was good to see Adrienne and Justin today. Hopefully they'll take a larger role in all this.

Didn't Gabi just tell Nick she didn't want to get married only for him to run back and organize a wedding anyway?

Well, whaddya know! There's Lucas. Going to see Sami. About their son. The way some people talk, you'd think he hadn't been on screen for 2 months, not 2 days/episodes and wasn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never.
Em, no that's not it. I mean, yes I don't know if and when he will be seen again. I mean, I knew this was coming from spoilers, and from what I have read there isn't another mention of him in the next few weeks, but that is spoilers. But that it's taken THIS LONG for Lucas and Sami to have a conversation about Will. And the first things out of Sami's mouth are, the kids are all at sleepovers - not even CONSIDERING that Will's situation might be a timely topic of discussion for she and Lucas together, his parents. It's not that I worry he isn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never. I mean, I do, as all signs indicate that, but whatever. It's that given who he is, that he is Will's father, that he and Sami were once, you know, married and together, that they were friends, that they have a history, he is only a marginal figure in this storyline. I know the storyline is nascent, and if the writers are more interested in telling other stories, that is fine. But that is what is upsetting. And here Lucas is, immediately talking about Ejami. B/c that is all that really matters, right? Not that I blame him for making the observations he's making. But that is just me maybe.

The way some ppl talk, this is the concern - the frustration that it makes perfect sense for Lucas to be more of a participant in the story, and he is relegated to the sidelines (other than the great convos with Will last week, but again those were isolated. Once they were done, he was just gone). Trust me, if in a few weeks he does become a very active, involved participant, I will be shouting from the rooftops with glee, admitting I had jumped to conclusions too soon. But I suspect that won't be happening.
From what was mentioned on yesterday's show, this is the day after the wedding. So Lucas waiting til the next day (or even the next day - not 100% sure) is not too long of a wait for him to discuss with this Sami. And considering Will JUST left her place, NOW is a good time for Lucas and Sami to talk. She just got a bit sidetracked, bu EJ stopping by...I can't blame her.

As usual, we are ALL suffering from the old 2/3 weeks real time = one Salem day. Seems like it's always been this way.
Not only that, but Sami is the one who called Lucas and asked when he'd be available to discuss Will, so it's not like she didn't want his input.

Oh yeah? Wanted Will's father's input? How generous of her. How anything but totally logical and appropriate.

My point is that this should go without saying. One might argue that Lumi aren't close anymore, and I would argue that, well, one, that in and of itself is bs (not that they aren't romantically involved, but that they are barely friends and seen together). And I would also argue that this shouldn't matter in light of this very significant development with Will.

Look, I get it. This isn't a Lumi story and that is fine - no one is interested in telling that story. I am just voicing my profound, rattling-my-gut displeasure that this is the case. Were it another time, I can only imagine what this story might look like.
