I'm so glad my mother isn't as bipolar as Sami. She makes me so thankful sometimes.

Don't worry EJ will be on tomorrow most likely holding Sami's purse and telling all those mean boys not to pick on his poor widdle helpless girlfriend.
Only for a minute and only if he's a good boy. His balls are in there and Sami won't let him spend too much time with them.

Yeah. EJ not being on enough is definitely a problem Days has. :eyeroll:
At least for me :) I do not find boring characters entertaining: And also if any of these uninteresting have a lot of screen time, I see it as a problem for Days, maybe it's that I think that with today's offer of soaps and TV series so should Days understand that what sells today for most viewers, and it is not dull and not charisma in terms of characters, but this is only my opinion.

No one finds boring characters entertaining. We just all have different opinions on who is boring.

:lol: I can't tell if Will is more shocked to learn Sami was apologizing or that Gabi is cramping & possibly going into labor.

Sami's super annoying and would be this way no matter who Gabi were engaged to, or even if she was single. #TeamNick I really hope crazy eyes gets one over on her. I do feel bad Will has to be a casualty in that.
Who's "crazy eyes"? Nick? Or our church robber? Oh wait...that's "crazy hair"! Seriously, who's "crazy eyes"?

I miss when Will hated Sami. Can they bring that back?
I will NEVER understand why this show insists on only letting him hate her for a few months at a time. Especially now that Ejami are together, he should be a constant thorn in their side. But they insist on sucking all the drama and angst that would make sense.
This points toward the major problem I'm seeing with Days, specifically the problem I see with romance on the show. I think the romance is dull because the show fears asking ME! to root for couples with some real drama potential. They try to make the couples rootworthy by not giving them any conflict of substance. Of course I would point to Dannifer as the poster child for this kind of lackluster romance. We were refused a real Jack and Jennifer story with some internal sources of angst, and now we are back to Dannifer, and it's, "Root for them; we're telling you to. They're the good guys. See, Maggie says so. And Chloe's evil now." It was a similar situation with Days trying to push dull Safe for so long. But that's why I think what they've done with EJami is a shame too. Now, that was a pair with some hurdles, but the show seems to want to sweep the hurdles away, so Will's gotta support Sami (and rape and bullets to the head are given only a nod). Don't sweep it away, Days, use it! If the show can't have some faith that ME! will root for a couple with big odds against them, maybe that's a sign that the couples the show is creating are weak, although I actually think Ejami had a lot of power, considering the way people have held onto them through some very poor writing, but the show didn't even try to test it, and I feel like Ejami's been turned into just another couple. I guess Brady/Kristen might have some real internal conflict, but to me, Brady's such a nothing of an interchangeable male that it doesn't matter. I think there's some hope for Eric and Nicole because they've got a built in source of conflict that doesn't really test ME! in ways the show seems afraid to test us. I hope that was coherent, and this is, admittedly, based on extremely limited viewing, as I really don't watch regularly anymore, because the show doesn't make me care about the characters. In fact, it's actually gotten me to stop caring about characters whom I have loved. Eric and Nicole sound like the most promising thing though. I think the show kinda wasted Ejami.
:shrug: ME!??
Oh, I assume that was Daytime Royalty editing my post not to speak for other viewers. Sorry about the confusion. I should have worded things more carefully.

Jen is asking far too much of Dan but she's dead right about Chloe ... Dan will figure that out when he's walking down the aisle to remarry Chloe asking himself how he got here.
I can't see Daniel as a victim, ever. If, in the unlikely event that he does end up at the altar with Chloe again, it'll be because he chose to put himself there. Just as he chose to have sex with Nicole and help her cover up her son's paternity. Just as he chose to compete with Jack for Jen's love. Just as he chose to pursue Chloe when she was engaged to Lucas. For all the coddling he receives from the women in his life, Daniel's a grown-ass man, and it's time he took the heat for his own decisions. Jen-Jen's running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to "save" him from wicked, scheming hussies like Nicole and Chloe :rolleyes: is beyond ridiculous and just makes her look controlling, presumptuous, and obsessed.

I wish that the writers would've made the obstacle to Ejami getting together this January their own past issues (lord knows they have enough of them), rather than Ejamafe v. 3.0. To me, that would've been a much more powerful way to get them to "lock, stock and barrel" rather than another round of the triangle that seemed stale three years ago. But I guess that's over and done with. Going forward, I'm hoping they use parental disapporoval to at least create some interesting conflict with Ejami and maybe even some conflict that forces them to flesh out some of their past crimes against each other. Overcoming their history can and should be a way to make them a more interesting and stronger couple. I'm not holding my breath though.

I love Abby, but this virgin storyline is horrible
Why does Abby think she needs to talk to Cameron about this now? She should talk to him in private when they are alone and will not be interrupted by other people. I do not understand why these people feel they need to discuss private matters in a public place.

Exactly. It would have been much more powerful. I think they're afraid to risk it. Going forward, I think they've already lost some of what they could have had, but maybe they'll tap into it. Yeah, I find holding my breath with this show can be hazardous to my health.

OMG! I loved that cliffhanger ending! Yes, Sami was wrong to go back in to see Gabi, but she really didn't do anything wrong beyond that. She didn't say anything out of line to Gabi, but BOY will no one believe that. "The Baby Won't Survive!" What a Friday cliffhanger -- ON THURSDAY!
Sami had no business going into the room knowing that her behavior upset Gabi causing a medical emergency.I don't blame Gabi for panicking on waking and seeing Sami.
I can't remember the last time Sami has seen Gabi without walking up on her while yelling at her and calling her names.Sami may start off apologizing but based on her past behavior it would not be long before she started gettintg all aggressive making it all about how she was wronged by everyone lying to her, how she is only looking out for Wiill,and how she was not going to allow Gabi to keep Will out of his daughter's life even though Gabi has made it perfectly clear she wants Will to be a part of the baby's life.If Sami truly cared about the baby and Will she would have put Gabi and the baby's welfare about what she wanted to do to make herself feel better.I actually wished Arianna was alive so she could punch that bitch in the face.

Yep! Is for me! I can't stand the Dannifer crap, Ericole is hit and miss for me, and Rafe/wabi/Will against Sami just doesn't cut it for me. I don't want Ej to be on to be around Sami that's for sure, but he needs to be scheming in some storyline. I miss the pretty.

It's too bad Will's too much of a wuss to cut Sami out of his life; sometimes i think Will would be better off with the black plague and untreatable syphillis.
What did he ever do to you?
