DAYS EJami Proposal! What Did You Think Of The Long Awaited Moment? – Watch the Video!



James Scott (EJ Dimera), who always delivers top notch dramatic performances with nuances, delivered tender, subtle and touching moments on yesterday’s highly anticipated episode of Days of our Lives, when EJ proposes to Sami (Alison Sweeney).

Talk about a way to romance the woman you love?  At the end of the episode, EJ asks Sami to marry him which we are sure made EJami fans swoon from coast to coast!

However, in the NBC promo this week for Days of our Lives, it appears that Sami’s first response is a resounding “No” to EJ, but why?  Fans are wondering if it is just a blip and she will give in to her love and passion for EJ and finally say, “Yes”?  Or, is DAYS going to keep them apart yet again?

Watch a clip of yesterday’s proposal action and the set-up of it thanks to DaysofourLivesFan28’s You Tube video and then check out this week’s NBC promo for DAYS where Sami’s reaction is not what some may have expected! Then, let us know what you thought of yesterday’s proposal?

      This was soooooooo romantic and I have been waiting for so long for this and it was very sparkly and beautiful. EJAMI are so good together that they light up the screen. I love them so much together and Im hoping they are together for a very very long time.

    This show is ridiculous… does everything have to happen at the Brady pub or Town Square?? Why do I even watch this crap anymore.. cute proposal, I guess – at Brady Pub. Doh.

      April 17, 2013 at 9:05 am

      Im just wondering how they keep clean what looks like a white sofa in the middle of the town square…obviuosly the birds dont poop in Salem! Also the Horton mantel clock is always set at 7:10…time stands still in Salem! lol

      • Ces

        April 17, 2013 at 9:36 am

        hahaha!! Hadn’t ever thought about that. I’ll have to check out the clock.. Also, does Jennifer have OCD because sometimes the mantel is full of family photos and the next day it’s wiped clean, then next episode, they are conveniently all back!

    • jimh

      April 17, 2013 at 11:22 am

      The sofa does have grey sides and not pure white but still who would put that sofa looking thing, and with pillows, in the town square? I didnt notice the mantel pictures thing…ill have to check that out…guess i pay too much time(pun) checking to see if the hands have ever changed on that clock! lol

        maybe it’s because the dialouge and storyline is so frigging boring that we have to look at other things to amuse ourselves 😉

      • Mary SF

        April 17, 2013 at 3:21 pm

        What drove me nuts about the set is how they use elements of one set to make up parts of another set. For example, the old police station office had the same cupboards as Rafe’s and Carrie’s law office, and then they use them in a hospital room. They could at least attempt to make them look different.

        As for the soda in the square, I agree it was an odd choice for a public space, wooden benches seem more practical- but to be fair they did say the square was covered, which means, no snow, no rain, no birds doing what birds do.

        Also I miss the docks. I remember when that pier was the hip and happening place for Salem, and now it is just a memory. But I agree with Ces, when the scenery is more interesting than the action- the soap is in trouble.

      • Ces

        April 17, 2013 at 4:13 pm

        Mary: Oh yeah, the docks!! I loved the docks!! So much action down there with Frankie & Jen, Britta, Steve, Bo, Kayla, Hope .. John & Doc’s reunion… geez, that place was awesome for Days!!

        yes, dumb that Rafe & Carrie’s office pieces are everywhere. I don’t see GH or Y&R reusing sets this badly.

        I remember Marlena’s exorcist comforter showing up a few times too 😉

      April 17, 2013 at 3:25 pm

      The show needs new writers…i miss the 1970s when the late William Bell was the headwriter, and when it was mostly about the Hortons! Ive watched DOOLs since the 1960s and the stories from 1966 to the late 1970s were the best character driven stories ive ever watched in daytime and so was Another World, when written by the late Harding Lemay, and about the Mathews family, during that same era! If we had some brilliant writers like them again working in daytime i bet the ratings could be twice as high! On Days id bring back Bill and Laura Horton…theyd live in the Horton home kinda like Tom and Alice but with some marital problems caused by Bills former mistress Kate. Bill would work in his late fathers office at the hospital as the new chief of staff…id bring back Julies son David whod be a lawyer working in his late uncle Mickeys office…id bring back Davids ex girlfriend Valerie who would date Abe and reveal her to be Camerons birth mother and claim David is his father but hint that maybe someone else could be. Id kill off Bo(but is he dead?) then bring back his daughter Chelsea who, along with Bos alleged death, drives Hope to drink with tragic results:Was a drunk Hope driving the car that hit Sonny and left him in a coma, or was someone else driving Hopes car? Kate has a stalker and fears its an unballanced Laura but is it one of Stephanos men or someone else? Roman gets closer to Kate during the stalker investigation which makes Rafe jealous. John tricks Kristen into getting into bed with him hoping Brady catches them but Marlena does instead and gets the wrong idea….i could go on with more stuff for Kayla, Caroline, E.J., Sami ect. to prove days could write for all, and do a better job…if only GHs Ron C. could do both shows…hes the best we got right now!

      • Ces

        April 17, 2013 at 4:16 pm

        I totally agree with you that it’s too bad Ron Carlivati couldn’t write both shows. That man comes up with more crazy ideas than anyone and that is exactly what Days needs – a shot in the butt!! Days writers are sleeping thru each episode and so am I.. Absolutely NOTHING is happening on this show unless you want to count repeat performances Nicole/Daniel/Jen was the same crap as the current junk Chloe/Daniel/Jen….I’m not sure how much more I can take of this show.. It has rich characters but it’s duller than dirt!
        Loved the stalker, slasher storylines of the 80s. Loved even the Dragon storyline. Prism storyline & even the Exorcist storyline is better than this current drivel. New writers Pronto!

    I loved the 4/16/2013 proposal! EJ set up the rendezvous with Sami in mind (not over the top at all!) and his emotional proposal was icing on the cake!

    This has been a long time coming and I can’t wait for today’s dialogue so EJami can finally “seal the deal” FOR REAL!

    So happy that EJ and Sami finally get there happy ending! True Love prevails!

    i know this is unpopular but i don’t want ej & sami to get married – i believe he is really ready but she is definitely not……………

  7. Kate

    April 17, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Loved the proposal, of course. And I’m sure Sami and EJ will bring on the soap in this afternoon’s episode. So happy Days finally “went there” with these two. I couldn’t adore them more. 🙂

  8. Rhonda Arvanitas

    April 17, 2013 at 8:32 am

    Things are different this time, Sami will give into her heart and say Yes!

  9. Mary SF

    April 17, 2013 at 8:34 am

    Really– the Brady Pub? Surely Salem must have somewhere more romantic than that for a proposal? Frankly I was disappointed by the whole thing. And we know she will say yes- there has to be a May sweeps wedding someone can interrupt, it wouldn’t be springtime in Salem without one. Perhaps a double wedding with Kristen and Brady- double the drama.

    But frankly I rather they not get married. Stay together, yes, but married?– they just don’t strike me as the happily ever after traditional couple- so why pretend that you are by getting married? I rather see them in a common law relationship– together because they want to be, with no need for a wedding. Also, once you marry on a soap the only place to go after that is break up, so let them be– lots of relationships don’t need marriage to work.

    • Ces

      April 17, 2013 at 9:44 am

      ditto on the Brady Pub. Lame!! Why not Chez Vous – is that right? LoL!

      I don’t see this marriage happening and I believe Sami still has unresolved feellings for Rafe as does he.

      • Leslie

        April 17, 2013 at 10:21 am

        Chez Vous would be your house, but I get where you’re going. The Chez Rouge set is probably in mothballs, so it’s got to be the Brady Pub. Just like the rest of us, Days is on a budget.

      • Ces

        April 17, 2013 at 10:33 am

        Well, EJ is rich so taking her to Brady Pub is lame. Days Budget or not…this is make believe and Sami has a great job so.. even their bedroom would have been sexier than Brady Pub.

    • jimh

      April 17, 2013 at 4:37 pm

      Had to reply here…the offices for Hope, Marlena, Jen, and Rafe are the same…it was also used for Brady as a examing room after he was attacked in the park. Instead of the town square, which reminds me of the town square in the Christmas movie Snow Globe or something that looks like the background of a 3rd grade stage play, they shouldve kept their outdoor mall instead which looked more realistic with those outdoor scenes. They couldve honored Dr. Tom and Alice with a hospital plaque instead since both worked there.

    Thanks Michael for your great comment regarding James and his acting abilities. He is by far the most romantic man in daytime soaps. One can read his thoughts just by looking at his facial expressions and his eyes.

    We Ejami fans have had to endure the Safe crap for way too long and deserve to have Ejami and appreciate TPTB giving Ejami a decent coupling. Sami and EJ are fantastic at making every other actor in their orbit just fade into the background. What I find difficult to deal with is the lack of time James has been on our screens. A few times a week and for only a few minutes is absolutely unforgivable on the part of TPTB.

    As for the proposal … PERFECTION. Of course Sami will say YES after an honest discussion with EJ regarding her reservations. I believe that they will FINALLY have a loving, romantic marriage and will spend their lives as a happy couple. I’m no fool…they will face angst from outside sources but they will survive whatever is thrown their way.

  11. Camilla

    April 17, 2013 at 8:45 am

    Wow, this was acting at it’s best I’ve said it before but will say it again James Scott has a stage presence that is worth gold, and he is a phenomenal actor and EJami is the hottest duo in Daytime, if Days is wise? This duo can drive a story and Dimera family, would like to see more bussnies story with them, adventure, family drama yes lots of story quite simply.

    • soapgal7057

      April 21, 2013 at 7:15 pm

      I agree totally! JS is simply phenominal. I hope Days can hold on to him because like you I think that EJ and Sami can drive the soap. Love that we are seeing more Dimeras!

  12. Missy

    April 17, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Loved the proposal – it was so sincere and heartfelt. Sami will say yes, even if she has to think it through a bit first. Sami and EJ were meant to be together.

    7 long happy/painfull/dark years..I couldn’t asked for anything more for EJAMI..GO EJAMI!!!

    As someone that has been a fan of the good, the bad, and everything in between, and I do mean everything, I loved it! But what’s not to love about Ej and Samantha. They for me represent the under dog of Soap Couples. They may have taken seven long years to get to this point, but it was worth the wait. Ejami is best Days has ever had for me and I know it will only get better.

    OMG EJAMI is getting ENGAGED!! SQUEEE!! Totally having a bit of a fan girl melt down with this one! I mean its been 7 LONG torturous years but its finally their time and their story!! Jamison just brings this duo to life on screen and has earned EJami a special place in my heart that was also residence to Luke and Laura back in the day. So happy for them, for us and for Days!!

They’ve captured my heart. And James and Alison bring their finest performances to it. They are definitely the next Super Couple on Days. #EJAMI #DAYS

  21. JorgeAnn

    April 17, 2013 at 9:16 am

    This is a long waited event. EJami is the hottest couple on daytime tv. Days needs to definately be behind EJami LSB. I am waiting to participate in the live twitter session with James Scott and Alison Sweeneythis afternoon. This is a win win for all EJami fans.

  22. jb44

    April 17, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I cannot stand to watch them together so I have been fast forwarding their scenes. So sad because James Scott is one of my favorite actors. The writers at Days seem to enjoy alienating a huge part of their audience with all these new, and oh so wrong, couples. I am giving this show 6 months to get back on track with some good story telling and couples with chemistry. If they can’t do it, after 45 plus years, I will be a former Days fan.

      April 18, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      I also fast forward through the Sami and EJ scenes. I can’t stand the two of them together. The show rewrites history so much that many new comers have no idea about what really has gone on between the two of them through the years.

      Give me the old Days like I’ve watched since that very first half hour show. There was real romance back then. There were also real super couples with relationships built on love, trust, respect, and chemistry. Super couples happened over time instead being manufactured like the ones that are now being shoved down our throats.

  23. Tina227

    April 17, 2013 at 9:25 am

    EJAMI is not your typical soap couple, and that’s why I love them. I think that the proposal was perfect, because it showed just how much EJ loves her. Yes, he could’ve taken her somewhere like Paris, but it would’ve been more about the location than the proposal. The point for EJ was to let Sami know he loves her, and accepts that her family will be a part of the package. EJAMI is a different kind of super couple, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

  24. MollyMay

    April 17, 2013 at 9:32 am

    OMG…it was the sweetest, tenderest most loving proposal ever. I don’t know what Sami said, but I was screaming yes, yes, yes!!

  25. Tricia

    April 17, 2013 at 9:38 am

    I can not get enough of these two! I need more Ejami on a daily basis!

    April 17, 2013 at 9:52 am

    JS could make proposing to a paper bag romantic. EJami is the reason I watch Days. They are the most compelling couple on not just daytime, but all of television.

    April 17, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    The show was wonderful. EJami is the real deal this time. James Scott and Alison Sweeney have great acting chemistry and romantic chemistry. I could watch them everyday. EJami is engaged.

    April 17, 2013 at 6:36 pm

    OMG these scenes were amazing and beautiful. The acting was flawless, as Ej said “perfect”. I can’t think of any other scene on TV that has ever been that romantic. I was in tears, and holding my breath the whole time. Gorgeous writing and acting. Sami’s insecurities were so true to character that it didn’t feel like a set up for tension, just a woman discovering true love. And Ej’s impatience and illusions to how long he waiting were breathtaking and heart wrenching. I LOVED IT. I can’t imagine it being any more perfect. This is a scene I’ll remember years down the road as an all time favorite. Thank you writers, thank you Alison, thank you James!

    April 17, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    I loved it! You could tell EJ was nervous, he really wanted everything to go right this time. It was so sweet how Sami was having a mini-meltdown and then apologized for ruining his moment…LOL! I just love these two, and it shows how even though they have had a rocky past, their feelings were never indifferent. Hatred is a passionate feeling too, and so even when they had their issues it came from a place of passion. I’m anxious to see them develop more as a couple, because if I know my EJami, things will be bumpy! But I really wouldn’t have them any other way!!! Thanks MF!

    • soapgal7057

      April 21, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    April 18, 2013 at 9:14 am

    Hate EJami. Happy for the fans of the couple, but I find them painfully boring. Sami is just a slut. Her saying no other men have loved her? The writing is very forced and these two are on too much, like Dannifer. Sorry, but will not be watching. I’d rather see the vets in some stories than more EJami crap.

  37. SarahBeth

    April 18, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Barf! This is the sickest coupling the show has ever done. A rapist and his victim should never be put together romantically. The second slap in the face was the twit telling EJ he was a good father to Ally. He put an imposter in her house to rape her mother and terrorize her. Lucas going along with Ally living in the mansion is equally as sick. They need to force Will to man up and not sacrifice Ally in the process. Then again tptb have ruined so many characters for this story it’s almost unwatchable.

    Hated it! The writers at Days and their selective memory irritate the heck out of me. The lock, stock and barrel couple’s true history is completely erased and Rafe and Lucas get thrown under the bus to prop them. If Elvis and Samantha have to be a couple then just do it without writing lies about Samantha’s history with Lucas and Rafe.

    • Polly

      April 21, 2013 at 1:17 pm

      History gets shoved aside for every character. What about Lucas sending Sami to die on death row? Every couple has done awful stuff to each other. That’s how most soaps create angst for them. I say that if you looked at this couple without obsessing about their past, you’d see the chemistry and the great dynamic that exists. Get over it….

      • rockfordfosgate

        April 21, 2013 at 6:37 pm

        If Sami and EJ were such and “it” couple, there wouldn’t be a need to trash the Rafe/Sami relationship with the utter falsehood of her being with Rafe only to please her family. There wouldn’t be a need to shut Lucas out of the storyline involving his son and grandchild in favor of propping up the Sami/EJ relationship. That’s not “obsessing about their past”; that’s just two examples of how the writers have lazily slapped this storyline together just to appease a particular fanbase instead of focusing on true storytelling and good quality writing. To address the re-written history…yes, history of the characters can be considered an evolving, changing thing. But building up this so-called “romance” on utter falsehoods all the way around (ignoring the past between Sami/EJ, trashing the years of Rafe/Sami, thrusting Lucas out of a legitimate storyline to upsell the EJ/Sami moving into the mansion lame-o plot) is NOT the way to build up a relationship for a couple that supposedly already has a great “dynamic” and “chemistry”. It’s just cheap plot-driven drivel instead of being character-driven drama. It’s about way more than their past and plenty of us can see past that.

      • where'dromancego?

        April 21, 2013 at 7:55 pm

        He didn’t send her to death row, Kate framed her. Lucas didn’t set out to harm Sami like EJ did, he only meant to save his mother’s life. Lucas lost his memory in a car wreak while she was on death row. When Lucas remembered Kate told Lucas she found someone who would confess to the murder and free Sami. Lucas didn’t say anything because he believed her. He returned when he found out Kate was lying and Sami would be put to death.

        It took years for Lucas and Sami to work through everything and forgive each other, that’s what made their story compelling. their history was never brushed aside, it was dealt with. This is just shallow, and really shows how stupid these writers think their audience is.

      • Melanie

        April 22, 2013 at 6:07 am

        Well Polly I don’t think I will “get over it” as you so eloquently put it.

        If you read my post you should have seen that it is all of the character’s history being forgotten or trashed that I referred to – and in addition as I wrote – I do not give a rats patootie if Samantha and Elvis are “together” so you just enjoy your honest and truthful couple.

    #Love! Yes, Yes, Yes! I’m over the moon happy that Samantha accepted EJ’s proposal to marry him and is now wearing his ring. I’m pleased it happened at the Pub and had significance (as EJ explained to both her and, most especially, to Caroline- the scenes of which I thought were sweet, him kissing her hand). EJami! Yes, Indeed.

    It is really too sad to see Sami reduced to an amnesiac, who has forgotten the cruelties heaped on her and her family by the DiMeras, but in particular to her by EJ. Kidnapping their daughter, taking her children away, making her tell them she no longer loves them, faking deportation, pretending to inject her IV with poison to kill her children. Please note that the elephant in the room is still the manner in which Johnny was conceived.
    And to hear Sami claim no one else really loved her!!! Yep, she is suffering from a huge loss of memory.
    I hope real Sami is able to be returned to her fans.

      Not to mention Sami shooting EJ in the head. Both have amnesia. These two do not belong together in any way shape of form.

    I loved the proposal scenes. EJ’s proposal was simple and heartfelt, and Sami’s reservations were realistic and understandable. James Scott and Ali Sweeney always bring genuine emotion to these big moments between EJ and Sami. Wonderful payoff for Ejami fans after waiting for 7 years!

    loved it ratings are up and that because of Ejami days and NBC know what most people want to watch and that couples like Ejami last year when Safe did nothing but tank the ratings along with Ecole and even Lumi when they is alot Ejami your always see a bump for example grief sex all time high for Days. Sami is finally with a man that truly loves her and Ali and James simply magic together so looking to the Ejami love story the proposal was so romantic i knew she say yes.

      ratings rose for the wedding reveal than fell again. Ratings always fall when ejamie are on. There was a freefall of ratings when ejami was on in 2008 and over 400,000 thousand people have stopped watching since the olympics cliffhanger

        Yes Days lost 400,000 viewers when they put Rafe back in Sami’s orbit and viewers thought they were going to reunite. Then week after week while it looked like Safe was heading back together, ratings dropped. It was an obvious bait and switch. Viewers thought they were going to finally see EJ and Sami together, but instead they got a wet sock to the face named Rafe LOL. The week after the cliffhanger Days had great ratings, and EJami were making out and making sexy eyes at each other and viewers tuned in. So no, Ratings don’t always all when EJami is on. Get your facts right!!

    Days ratings this week are up and Ejami was on alot there no Safe or Lumi they are the wealk links when they not on the ratings go up just leave Ejami in peace and if give them a story and take that Lucas and rafe away from them no one wants to watch those boring characters.

      Paul ignore those who claim EJami are killing the ratings. They don’t deal in facts but make belief. They think if they say it enough that TPTB will listen to them and give them what they want. What they don’t seem to understand is that TPTB actually have sense and know how to read ratings LOL. EJami was on screen and ratings went up. That’s the complete opposite of killing ratings, in fact Days actually gained viewers. I guess some need to learn how to read ratings instead of making up nonsense.

    the engagement was everything I hoped and beyond. We ejamis are very excited for our couple. Ej made me cry the way he poured his heart out to Sami, the love of his life. So sweet and heartfelt. When Sami finally said yes, she made Ej the happiest man in the world. Ej finally gets the girl and We are celebrating. Congratulations Ejami.

    EJ proposing at the pub was very sentimental. He could have taken her anywhere, but this was his way of letting Sami know that he understands her family is important to her.

    Sami and EJ understand and love each other like no one else ever has or ever will. Sami and Ej vs. All of Salem is a storyline I’ve been waiting for for 6 years and this will be the first step.

    After waiting for years for these two to STOP fighting their love for each other it’s been sheer bliss to finally see them embrace them.

    April 21, 2013 at 8:45 am

    I absolutely loved it. I was a messy puddle of tears when I watched it. James and Alison brought it with stellar performances. I teared up when Sami talked about how she felt previous loves only loved a part of her and wanted to change her. I saw that first hand and it broke my heart every time. I managed to get myself together, only to tear up again when EJ broke down and told her loved her for who she is and how she brings joy to his life. Since EJ has entered Salem, it was clear that his heart only belonged to Sami, no matter how hard he tried so his words felt genuine. It feels like I have waited forever for DAYS to give this couple a chance and when they finally did, they threw everything and the kitchen sink into them! I hope these two make it down the aisle because they feel like DAYS next supercouple. No matter who or what comes in their way, they’ll overcome it. Their love is that strong.

    I’m still swooning lol. Days has done a tremendous job in rebuilding EJ and Sami’s relationship and it culminated in these truly wonderful and romantic episodes. EJami don’t need the bells and whistles that other couples might. It’s all about them. They could have gotten engaged anywhere but the words would still be the same: EJ has and will always love Sami as she is and Sami loves and accepts EJ. This is hands down the best love story Days has had in years!!!

    Thanks so much for asking Michael! I absolutely LOVED the proposal scenes! They were beautiful, emotional and touching without being sappy and over the top. It felt honest and truthful. James and Ali hit it out of the ballpark with these scenes! The tears… it gets me every time… Amazing stuff!!! 🙂

    The proposal scenes were amazing. They both killed it, I cried and smiled at the same time. The writers did an excellent job and Ali and James were outstanding! James and Ali have chemistry that just sizzles on the screen. I look forward to this story line continuing with them battling whatever comes their way. Ej and Sami are a supercouple!

    • Karen

      April 22, 2013 at 8:09 pm

      The scenes were amazing!! I can’t wait for the wedding. What I love even more is that the ratings were up 156,000 viewers and EJami is on the screen and in love. So viewers are actually watching them and not tuning out like some claim. Surprise, surprise LOL. And as a fan of old school SGB, I’m glad Sami is back to herself and not playing Steford wife to Rafe or Lucas. Now she’s back to her old self and I love it. Even better that she’s found a man who loves her for who she is in EJ. I’m so looking forward to their future stories.

    I’m a pretty hard core soap viewer. I’ve got about 25+ viewing years in, gone to many soap events, and I remember getting the latest copy of SOD at the grocery store with my grandma at the age of about 10. For me there are very few stand out moments in soap history. I’ve seen it all soap-wise and even though I have loved and hated soap characters/SLs rarely and I moved. EJ and Sami move me. These two imperfect people that have always had this combustable relationship are must see tv! EJ said it recently, that they have either loved or hated each other but never been indifferent. The fact that they are incredibly flawed characters with, in my opinoin, the strongest chemisty ever on daytime gives them this huge rooting value. They do horrible terrible things to each other, but in the end, when they need it, they are the ones that are there for one another.

    The proposal was off the charts. There were no undertones, no mysterous twist that we were left wondering about, it was raw and as much as a soap can be it was real. Sami said what Ejamis have said for years, the other men in her life wanted to change her, they wanted her to be someone else (IMO Carrie). Not EJ. EJ loves Sami for Sami. He supports her and is even proud of who the real Sami is. The vulnerability that these two showed was a true tear-jerker. I have always been an Ejami, but this proposal had to show others who were not yet convinced that EJ and Sami are the rooting couple. I loved how Sami really show EJ (and me!) that she does love him with her whole heart, like he does her.

    I also loved the nod that the writers gave to us about the towel drop! This is a show giving fans the respect and the show that they want!

      *Best Post*

      You basically described myself as a longtime viewer on and off for 25 years.Ej and the connection with Sami is what brought me back to Days after not watch for more than 5 years…It was new, it was exciting, their was the push and pull between these characters,that I loved..But most of all *I loved how EJ didn’t want to Change Sami he completely loved Her (sigh ) Even when everything was done possible to destroy this possible non lovestory I always believed if they forgave each other their Real Love for One another would shine through..I love the complexity of them..I just love them best Soap couple in the history of Days or IMO Daytime or Primetime TV shows..They are Rhett & Scarlett 1000x intensified..

      I loved *The Proposal* I loved the dialogue again what we have waited for Sami to admit to herself and to EJ her settling for men who didn’t love her Completely..OMG I have tears in my eyes again.

      I applaude Alison Sweeney and James Scott again without fail their performance as Ejami is what gets me in Everytime..

    April 22, 2013 at 5:35 am

    Of course all the Sami/EJ fans come out in force when asked about the “proposal”. That is to be expected. Would any fan of theirs not drool over the rather forced and inept manner in which the proposal was tendered. Nothing mattered except that EJ got down on bended knee to offer yet another ring to his obsession.

    For Sami to reply that no other man really loved “her” was an outrage. Lucas went to prison for their son, came on the lst plane from Hong Kong when she called, deserting his fiancee’. He got her out of more scrapes than one can count.
    And Rafe…he nearly lost his life for her, a couple of times. And he truly went to the ends of the earth to get the proof that EJ was the one who kidnapped their child, and pretended she was dead. (Besides countless other times of also managing to get her out of her scrapes.
    Ratings are falling, Days is losing thousands of long time (and even short time) viewers, mostly because of the nonsense of trying to pair EJ and Sami, who seems to now have lost most of her memory. And no amount of attempting to shift the blame elsewhere is going to work. Viewers who used to love Sami no matter who she was with have nothing but animosity towards that character now.
    And this all falls back on the writers, who put their eggs in the wrong basket….(and not just with EJ & Sami…there is Dr. Gropefest & St. Jen, plus Great gramma Kate & Rafe…all examples of horrendus couplings )

      April 22, 2013 at 6:12 pm

      Gee, Barb, it seems you have a lot of problems with the show. But let’s stick with the proposal for a moment. Sami didn’t say that no other man had loved her. What she said was that when men had told her before that they loved her, they didn’t love her for who she actually is, that they loved some small part of her, or who she was pretending to be at the time, or who they thought she was, or that they wanted to change her. There’s a big difference in what you said and what she said, and, if you weren’t so busy spewing your vitriol, you might have invested some time in understanding it.

      And ratings aren’t falling. Actually, they are up from the last year, which were up from the year before. Days must be doing something right.

      I’m not sure why you still hang around, ranting about what’s wrong with Days, how much you’d like to see it go off the air, and sending out nasty tweets to its actors. Maybe it’s time to investigate your obsessions and try to get over them. You just might end up a happier person. What I do know is that there are plenty of us who enjoy soaps and want to see them thrive.

      • rockfordfosgate

        April 23, 2013 at 7:59 am

        Why attack Barb personally and make assumptions about her in real life? Personal attacks only come out as a deflection about the message being said and when there is no real rebuttal of the facts. Fact: Days went lock, stock, and barrel with promoting EJ/Sami (and no other major promoting of ANY other storyline) through Feb. Sweeps. Ratings dropped 3 of the 4 weeks during Sweeps. Ratings are consistently down from week to week, any real gains the show had made over a longer period of time have been lost. Fact: I did NOT see any mention of “nasty tweets” in Barb’s post. That’s an ASSUMPTION on your part. Just because someone doesn’t like a particular storyline or the general direction of a show doesn’t make them a negative person. It doesn’t mean they have “obsessions”. On the flip side, over the top gushing over a fictional couple could also be construed as “obsession”. Most stalkers and obsessed fans aren’t the ones who don’t like the storylines; they’re the ones who go way overboard on the positive side. Fact: The proposal wasn’t the spectacular piece of brilliance it’s being raved about here. It was very mundane and rather boring. The set was used because the cost of changing sets around too often and we all know Days has had extreme budget cuts over the years that affect the way they use sets, their filming schedule, and so on. Even given that, the proposal wasn’t EJ Dimera style–it was Rafe Hernandez style. Opinion: EJ has become everything that EJ/Sami fans hated about Rafe. Where is EJ’s flair and style, his scheming ways, and his massive ego? Gone. Rafe cared about Sami’s family and was vilified for it; EJ does it and it’s “romantic”.

    I find it odd that EJ supposedly understands how important family is to her, supposedly has loved her for who she is and has never wanted to change her, and proposing in the Pub is predicated on that notion. Seems like there was another time he played on the “family” thing during a proposal…the one where he was fishing on the pier. How did that one end up? AT THE WEDDING, he told Stefano he planned on keeping Sami away from Roman and the rest of the Bradys. So much for the idea that EJ has ALWAYS loved respected the importance of her family in her life. *eyeroll*

    April 22, 2013 at 5:46 pm

    I have re-watched the proposal so many times I can’t ADDICTED …The raw and vulnerable of EJ/Sami sides were PERFECT. Ejami proposal was simple but was so beautiful play out..Great job Jamison and Days writers making an EPIC proposal.One of Ejami best scene EVER

    I soooo loved the ejami proposal. It was a moment of truth, plus it was so romantic. I love that this pair has finally gotten the chance to be Ejami and nothing is going to get in the way for them. 7 years in the making and it was worth ever day, hour, minute and second. Can’t wait for the wedding.

  65. CB

    April 22, 2013 at 5:58 pm

    I rarely say this about proposal scenes on Days because they are usually nothing more than a plot point and unromantic but I loved EJami’s. I particularly loved that instead of immediately saying yes like she has with past proposals, that Sami made sure that EJ was doing it for the right reasons.

  66. Krista

    April 22, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    It was a beautiful proposal and it was so rewarding to see Sami work through her insecurities with EJ before she said “yes.” Both Alison Sweeney and James Scott delivered top-notch, emotional performances and I look forward to many more great performances from these two as Ejami’s relationship progresses.

    It was soap romance PERFECTION!! It felt very realistic and sincere..I cried with them, and rejoiced when they did!! It was a stand up and applaud/cheer moment for me and hundreds of thousands of other viewers.

    Ejami delivered in every way -it was so worth the 7 year wait!!

    April 22, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    I just wanted to make another comment. I have watched now for almost 20 years, just 6 months shy of Ali’s debut. I was a young 18 year old when I started watching and I always liked Sami’s character. I have never faulted from my loyalty to the character. I have grown and matured just as Ali/Sami have over these years. I have watched her with Austin, Lucas, Brandon, Franco, heck Tony, EJ and Rafe. I am sorry but when James came on the scene there was an immediate chemistry between Ali and James. Ali’s eyes never lit up like they do with James. Lucas is her friend more then anything (Bryan is great but when you watch Ali and Bryan it is icky, like a brother sister relationship, they shined in the fun evidence room scenes, sorry but Rafe was a rebound and he doesn’t let her be her, the others are self explanatory. So with that said, yes EJami fans are of course going to be excited about the proposal. The love these two characters are finally embracing has been in the works for 7 years, we have been very very very patient. The fan base has remained strong because we have weathered thru all the craziness the other fan bases throw up so quick so say why these two shouldn’t be together. The problem the other fan bases has is just that….. because of all the craziness is why these two belong together. They are still pulled to the other. I would watch these two paint walls and watch the paint dry, they just ooze chemistry! Thank you TPTB for finally giving these two the chance they deserve. They have made 2013 the year of Ejami and I am one fan who is very happy 🙂

    Love, love, loved the proposal scenes. You can just see how much EJ and Sami love each other. Even better I loved them talking about the first time they met 7 years ago. Even after all the hurt and pain, they’ve learned to forgive each other and just give into the love they have always had for each other. Like Lexie said, if EJ and Sami would stop fighting each other then they would be happier than they’ve ever been. Her statement has come true, and EJ and Sami are indeed happy TOGETHER. Love it and can’t wait for the wedding. I love it even more that So Many EJAMI fans are here expressing their feelings and love for those scenes. Let’s ignore the agenda driven haters and focus on how great EJami is and how amazing Ali and James were in the scenes 😉

    I could care less about the proposal…..I do not like either EJ or Sami I never have. My favorite part was Lucas and his remarks about the wedding consultant and enjoying 15 minutes of matrimony because that is about a long as this marriage will work if they get to the altar in the first place

    What an amazing, sexy, and gorgeous loving couple together that really gets and understands one another and accepts each other for good, bad, and all in between! And they bring out the absolute best and great strength and passion for love, life, and family together in each other! They’re the absolute right and perfect ones together and for each other! And FINALLY…THEY’RE TOGETHER!!! Sooooooooooo many years of waiting and this has all been just brilliant with them together! And the proposal was beautiful, touching, loving, and just so romantic and meaningful to her, for her, and to and for both of them! (But his proposals and rings for the love of his life Samantha Gene are always absolutely top-notch, wonderful, and romantic! She has finally woke up and realized the greatness and the always has been absolutely right and perfect man for her and who truly loves and accepts HER, and the love of her life EJ!!!)

You bring a joy to our life that no one else can. That is one of the many reasons we love you and want to spend the rest of our life watching your incredible beyond imagination performances. It doesn’t matter where you are, where you propose, what you say or do you captivate the screen like no other. I have watched the show for 35 plus years and this is what I have been waiting for all these years, a true love story with a devoted couple. These two can perform with passion the heartfelt, extraordinary, giddy, riveting emotion of love. Take note Hollywood theirs is a talent that is hard to find! There will never ever be enough of James and Allison, Take it to the mat James and Allison, don not quit until you are holding an your EMMY and your OSCAR!!!

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”
