OK, the battle lines are drawn!  Round Two. DAYS, SAFE Vs. Ejami fans! You have come out in droves to tell us  what “hottie” Sami Brady ultimately end up with.  And while On-Air On-Soaps is still tallying up your votes from your fantastic and passionate comments, a new interview surfaced today with Soap Opera Network with Days of our Lives, executive producer Ken Corday.   The top gun at DAYS had been on a press tour heavily promoting his new book and memoirs.  So when asked the question of where Sami and her romantic life is headed, here was his answer!

Corday on EJ/Rafe/Sami: “I truly believe the viewers want Sami and Rafe together. You know, Sami can be her own worst enemy and this time she’s not doing it in a vindictive way. She’s just being pulled in by this not so nice guy [EJ]. That will come to a conclusion sometime right after Labor Day. I think viewers will be very happy to see Sami being the strong Sami, who is taking things into her own hands. I wish I could tell you the plot points, but I can’t! I can say you can expect a lot of surprises and viewers will get what they want.”

So do you still think EJ still has a fighting chance for Sami,  or is going to be now and forever Rafe ?

I don’t think EJ will have anything to do with Sami for at least a while especially when the truth comes out, but that may be a good thing. He is boring as hell with her, for me totally unwatchable. Put him with Ari, Nicole, Brady, Rafe or Stuntman #3 and I’m totally interested, but with her he just becomes this liar that a lot of the EJAMI fans throw under the bus and act like he’s a puppet and all the bad he does is totally controlled by his father. I want to see a real man come out and that seems not to happen with Sami.

Corday….Keep him out of her orbit & keep him watchable.

EJ better have a fighting chance. We all expected Sami to reunite with Rafe after finding out about the Sydnapping…but hopefully after a couple of or a few months, things come full circle to Ejami, where they began, with Sami realizing she started this baby-lying thing and forgiving and reuniting with EJ. I watch DOOL for EJ and Sami mostly, so I sure hope September isn’t the start of Safe forever & ever…that it’s a stop on the way to Ejami. No other couple can beat Ejami for me in the chemistry, potential, or “how much are they in love” or “how perfect are they for each other” departments.

If EJ would just tell Sammi the truth now and let the chips fall where they may I might be fooled for a while into believing he loves her. BUT he wont. I get that Ejamies want them together but once they get there then what? you think sammi is gonna deal with him selling drugs? or just the fact that he is a Criminal,she isnt Nicole she wont play the quiet wife. so Do we really want to see the rapist trat Sammi as he did Nicole? I sure dont. Sammis not evil. She has done some aasenine things yes, but in her defense she was a minor for the “rape” she commited,as well as kidnapping her sister. her reasons were different as well. 1 she was a child who wanted her parents together since her intire childhood was a sham thanks to Staefano and with Austin like some teen age girls she became infatuated with him. but again she was a child. not a grown man (with a gun whod just shot John) compare all you like but honestly there is none!! You cannot compare a child to an adult and thats that!! I want EJ to truly find love and be loved with no strings or lies!! im hoping thats Ari. Safe all the way(since I cant have my Lumi ending)

Are you kidding? Did you just say EJAMI fans throw Sami under the bus every chance they get? I go on the boards nearly every day and its always been the Rami and Lumi fans ripping Sami (and Ali) apart. Of course we trash Rami and Rafe, but I don’t recall one time when EJami’s trashed Sami. It’s always Been Rami fans! Just recently Ali was attacked on twitter by Rami fans for saying something nice about EJami. EJami’s hav never personally attacked Ali once, not every day for 2 years Safe were together or whenever she said something nice about them on twitter!

LOVE EJAMI and only EJAMI. I only watch DOOL now because of EJAMI and have been a fan for most of my life. I just don’t care for Sami when she is with Rafe. Rafe needs somebody that can follow his instructions and be the good little ole’ wife that he demands and that isn’t Samantha Brady. She has never been that way, so unless they plan to change her character, then SAFE will never be believable! I watched Sami and Lucus grow up and now I am ready for Sami to have a mature, yet fun and enjoyable relationship where she can be herself! I love the chemistry between EJAMI. Bring on great storylines between the Dimera and Brady’s!!! I’d love to see Lucus come back with a new love. Lucus and Sami make wonderful friends and we need to see all of Sami’s kids. With Lucus gone, we never see Ali. No more SAFE or I will finally stop watching DOOL. Four years have been too long to wait, so I hope that EJAMI can be the supercouple that they are meant to be!

I love Ej with Arianna. He is so unlike himself. I don’t want him anywhere with Sami, the woman he raped. No, fans will not just let that slip under the bus like Ejami fans want us too. I want Ejanna together and I want Bryan Dattilo back on screen. I want him to have a good story line. Make him a Dimera and make him and Ej get into a brawl over da mansion and other things.
Bryan should be back on the show.

Mary

You may not have noticed but Ejami’s are also fans.

Ej being unlike himself is not a good thing just like it’s not a good thing Sami isn’t like herself with Rafe.

Kiren
Kiren

Don’t try to insinuate that all fnas think like yourself, and any fans other than the present vocal EJami fans don’t want EJami, FL is gaining new members every day who are falling in love with EJami. Even vocal bloggers like DaysTalk show preference to EJami as of late.

Julia

Ej and Arianna ? Please it would just be just ridiculous : she is the woman he accused of kidnapping his daughter whereas she did not do anything to him (unlike Sami or Nicole), he also manipulated, lied and conned her with the Drug business story..And she is also a good girl who will certainly not accept his life as a Dimera criminal..even the idea is just ludicrous ! So this idea is just a way to separate Ej from Sami as usual..you are really transparent..it you want another love-interest for Ej at least be a little worthy : a new character plays by a new actress..anyway it is even funny to read you so concerned about Ej and his love life since you hate the character..lmao.

Ejami has the best chemistry of all of them. I mean they have so much history and have done so much and are back to a point of trying to make the best of a situation. Safe is boring. Like how can you continue a plot for them if they were to get togehter. BORRRRRRRRINGGGGGGGG!!! I mean they might be nice with each other but who wants to watch that? it’s fun watching the chemistry between ej and sami because they fight and they want to make up so bad. Look how many times they have tried to get back together. Geez writers, write it in already. They are a SUPERCOUPLE.

esperanzastar
esperanzastar

You have hit the nail right on the head!!!!!! GO EJAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only reason why I watch Days @ this point and time is because of EJAMI not boring safe,rafe needs to find a woman just as boring as he is… Keep Days going choose EJAMI the only SUPERCOUPLE I want to see.

cat

Totally agree!!! go EJAMI!!!!!!

there is no way Ejami is a super couple. How can someone be a super couple when everything is based on lies and maniupations.
That is all Ejami is ever been.
Lies and Manipulations. Ej has to lie and manipulate Sami to even be in the same house with him. that should tell you something right there.

ITA with you Panda. EJ and Sami are better people when they are NOT together. IMO, Ejami is a toxic relationship built on nothing but lies and deception. Sami is a different person now, and imo Rafe is the one that brings out the best in her. Even when Sami was this “bad girl” she still disaprroved of EJ’s “Dimera” ways…which is something that I don’t see changing anytime soon. As for EJ, he needs someone that accepts him for who he is. It’s time that he start chasing someone who will love him (the real EJ)… and most of all…not judge him.

I have faithfully watched DOOL for over 30 years. On and off .But religiously for the last 4 years , because of Ej and his Samanther.Sorry I admit it , cannot get enough of those 2.Ken Corday gave us Ejami Fans some very dissapointing news the other day , if you cannot believe the head honcho who can you believe he ? By the way these are the last words of the Ken Corday interview i did not see above :Yes, that is what I was referring to. I truly believe the viewers want Sami and Rafe together. You know, Sami can be her own worst enemy and this time she’s not doing it in a vindictive way. She’s just being pulled in by this not so nice guy [EJ]. That will come to a conclusion sometime right after Labor Day. I think viewers will be very happy to see Sami being the strong Sami, who is taking things into her own hands. I wish I could tell you the plot points, but I can’t! I can say you can expect a lot of surprises and viewers will get what they want, which is Sami and Rafe back together again.

Well Ken’s been wrong a lot. You don’t need to trust him, he also said Carly wouldn’t be in Bo’s orbit. And what happened? He also said Lumi would be together, and where is Lucas now?

whoa! whoa! everyone has to remember one thing..ej and sami bring their characters to life when theyre TOGETHER! you can feel the heat and the passion the pent up longing between them cause they lost eachother and played it safe ej with nicole and sami with rafe but now that the thought it there and they seem to have a fighting chance REGARDLESS of what transpired to get them to this point.the love and sexual tension they have is real,and the love they feel is the kind that can bring you to your knees explosive and just make your heart and soul bleed which is why they played it SAFE! and corday should go to you tube as should the rest of the ejami haters and SEE FOR YOURSELVES that EJAMI has more videos made and hits than SAFE by a long margin!!that what the majority of the viewers want.GO EJAMI love seeing them on their way back to eachother and the road it takes to get them there “FROM HERE TO ETERNITY” EJAMI ALL THE WAY!!! p.s james scott is the sexiest man on daytime soap

Mercedes

I agree with your post. I love EJ just the way he is. Yes he is a flawed individual, the heir apparent groomed to take over Stephano’s empire . I love how he has shown remorse, fights with his inner demons who sometimes win, and sometimes don’t, and that he adores his children and the woman who is firmly sealed in his heart , the poster child of the dysfunctional his beloved Samanther .

EJ Dimera to me is the most compelling character on the show.Waiting patiently and fervently for EJAMI TO BEGIN > ; D

I think Ej drags Sami’s charactor down. She had to be dumbed down to beleave all Ej’s lies and manipulations once again. Surprise Surprise. Dumbed a charactor down so they can make us sickness on our screen that I won’t even watch.
Ej is nothing but a lying manipuating crook.He is a Dimera through and through and nothing is going to change that.

My sister and i have watched days for 15 years and there has never been the chemistry with any 2 characters that there is when Ej and Sami are together!! I am sad to hear that they are not going to end up together again!!

Allison

all i have to say is if kc puts sami with rafe i’ll quit watching days !!anyone with eyes can see that sami is like a lit up christmas tree whenver ej is around her in her life and th fact that they have kids together is the icing on the cake for these two and OMG..THE PASSIoN!! could melt the screen i have watched days since ej began and ive only ever seen him be himself with sami n vice versa these two characters are totally insync with eachother its so MIRRORED!!whats so hard about that and the fact that its taking so long and dragging it out i only hope its worth it to whichever fan base wins because im totally getting upset abput the possability they just might stick sami with rafe!! ej and sami have done dispicable things to EACHOTHER nad yet they still manage to have somehting between them sami only wanted rafe cuz she couldnt have ej he was with nicole only to spite her anyway and samui and ej have tried so hard to get eachother out of thier systems but cant and now its at the surface and theirs only up from here come on mr corday wake up n smell ejami pls

RAFE all the way baby!

Rafe is one of the most boring characters I’ve ever seen on Days and I’ve been watching for 40 years. The comment that the fans want Safe is just crazy. On what planet do people want to watch that snoozefest?

huskygrl

on the planet were we know the difference between romance and rapemance-that’s where!

Mary

Whomever sais 12/29 was romantic? It’s not the fans of EJ and Samantha.

But if that’s all you’ve bothered to see with those two, no wonder you’ve missed some of the most wonderful and dazzling chemistry seen on daytime.

cinnamon

Only Charactor that is boring is Ej dimera. Its like he has to be around Sami and tell her who she can have around her. Lies and Manipulations. All catch up. Can’t wait for when the truth comes out. I hope that Ej either goes to jail or Sami shoots him. What he deserves.

Exactly! The boss has spoken. That is enough for me. I am so looking forward to the next hot explosion of chemistry that is SAFE at their next reunion. Gotta love their reunions! They bring the heat! WooHoo!

Sherry

Yes!!! SAFE all the way!!! Love them together…They have passion and romance that hasn’t been seen on Days since the early 80’s….I love their interaction with each other and they don’t have all this “junk” between them….If Sami can’t be with Rafe then bring back Lumi…ANYTHING but Ejami!!! They bore me to tears with all their lies..I don’t think they have ever spoken a true word to each other…YUCK!! Give me SAFE!!!!! Can’t wait for their steamy reunion!! Woot!!Woot!!!

liasonbff

THIS viewer, who did NOT start watching Days until AFTER Safe were already a couple, WANTS Sami with EJ. How can EJ not still have a chance if during the peak of Safe, a new viewer such as myself preferred the forbidden EJami? So yep, EJ will always have a fighting chance IMO. EJ TRULY loves Sami, and I think Sami loves EJ but is afraid to because he’s not the “good” guy in white that we’re all supposed to desperately want or whatever. Yeah, Rafe’s the good guy, the one her family loves, the hero, the knight in white whatever, but he’s not right for Sami.

tatigers81
tatigers81

Same here! When I stareted watching Sami was with rafe – but i felt no chemistry between the two. I just feel such a pull between Sami and EJ – and yes I do know the history – but it’s in the past! EJ loves Sami so much! I love the angsty romance of her loving him, but not wanting to love him…i love the fact that she is a brady and he is a dimera!

Crystal
Crystal

I’m another one who didn’t start watching until around the time Rafe came on. At first I was pulling for those two, but after awhile I couldn’t help but notice that Sami and EJ seemed much more interesting to watch together. I am now totally pulling for EJ and Sami, and have loved this summer. It’s the first time I have gotten to see romance between them and I am enjoying it while I can!

cheryl
cheryl

Well Michael right now it is not Safe! It is most definitely Ejami! Did you not see the Smoking Hot Kiss Sami gave Ej. Sami was not thinking of Rafe when she practically attacked Ej! That’s what I’m talking about! “THIS FAN WANTS EJAMI”

cinnamon

SAFE all the way.
If Ej hadn’t lied and manipulated Sami once again. She wouldn’t even be living at the Dimera mansion.
I couldn’t even watch the kiss it made me want to puke. That is why I fast forward throught it.
Ej only loves his self. As long as his lies don’t get out is all he cares about.
SAFE all the way.
I had been watching the show way before SAFE came on and will continue to watch if if there is no Ejami. Won’t watch it is there is. Just like I did before.
Never liked the pairing never Will!!!

Susan

Sorry but EJ and Sami have a history together. If you look back at videos from when EJ came to town, Sami did chase after him even thought she was with Austin, by the way the Austin SHE raped!! She gave him drugs and RAPED him. But also they have talked and forgiven each other, again look back at the night Sidney was conceived, Sami admitted to EJ that she has done wrong too. As for the whole kidnapping, what Sami did is just as bad!! She never told EJ that he had another child with her until AFTER it was dead, that is deplorable and unthinkable. BUT, the chemistry that those to have is undeniable IMHO, Rafe is boring and how long did it take for Sami to jump into bed with Rafe what one month, two after meeting him, he is a rebound. Check out June 30, 2010 that is romance between EJ and Sami, that is chemistry, that is want and need even though they have hurt each other they still want each other and besides people this is a soap opera not real life!!!

This fan wants Ejami too. I really don’t understand how Ken came up with Safe being fan fav…it just doesn’t add up. The passion in EJami’s single kiss blew the whole Safe relationship out of the water.

RAFE is the first man sami loves with out any tricks/ schemes its real pure
love respect she will come to her senses soon once rafe is back its very sami like to revert back to her old insecure ways
thats all she knew untill rafe showed her
how real love is what a sweet reunion this will be

GO SAFE

cheryl

Ok correct me If I’m wrong, but didn’t Super Rafe WALK OUT on Sami more then once. Give me a break their relationship is not the only relationship Sami has ever had that their was no manipalation. Do you even know Sami she lies to everyone and manipalates every man she has every been with including Rafe the super agent. She manipalated him when she was in WP. Rafe didn’t get fired from the FBI for nothing. Rafe is no different then anyone else. Sami is no SAINT. Ej loves her for the good the bad and everything in between. Rafe can’t say the samething he walks whenever he feels like it. That is not love. Love is Understanding and Love Forgives! Sami WILL Forgive Ej because deep down she loves Ej and always will! “THIS FAN WANTS EJAMI FOREVER!”

Leah
Leah

That is a joke my dear, despite our preferences lines and scenes don’t lie. Rafe doesn’t accept Sami for who she is. He has walked out on her and the kids several times the last time BECAUSE SHE LIED TO HIM. Oh boo hoo, poor Rafe – not! I say keep walking Rafe, keep walking right out of the picture.
Rafe is a self righteous, selfish, manipulative, prideful, arrogant git. Rafe doesn’t like or tolerate being questioned by Sami and hasn’t even opened up to her about his past. I’ve had enough of Sami playing the grovelling, wimpy, weak, woman with him and looking for his seal of approval on everything. Rafe has also shown us his true colours and character when he went ahead and ILLEGALLY adopted Grace….. some honest and true FBI agent. Another thing I don’t like about Rafe is he wants EJ kids to himself and wants to cut them out of EJ’s life. Rafe continually downputs EJ and what happens when the kids overhear this one day? No Rafe is not good stepfather material. I say if he wants kids he needs to find someone and create his own….. Will, Ally, Johnnie & Sydney all have fathers. EJ has only ever encouraged Lucas’s involvement in his childrens lives and any issues EJ and Lucas had were always put aside for the sake of the children. Now that’s a father and a grown up….. putting the children’s needs ahead of your own. Rafe I suppose we can’t expect you to understand that as your simply not a dad. Go Ejami and Ejamily!

Linda

I didn’t see a smokin’ hot kiss, there was no passion, it was like watching two year old babies kissing, smashing there lips together, don’t get me wrong, babies kissing are adorable, but not two grown ups! If that’s all he’s got no wonder they are not a couple!!!! It’s Rafe and Sami for me now they have passion, romance, the way they gaze into each other eyes and say they love each other, and when he carries he into the bedroom now that’s smokin’ HOT!!!!! SAFE is the couple of 2010……

Sherry

I am a long time viewer and a big fan of EJAMI from day one. How can anyone not see the amazing chemistry between the two characters/actors? EJ and Sami (EJAMI) are pure magic when they are together in a scene. They are really the best thing on that show!!!!

This Viewer wants EJAMI

Kiren

We’ll see what happens. Corday is obviously grossly misinformed or ignorant to believe that the majority would prefer Safe to EJami. Sami is going to be falling for EJ in the next few months and when she’s back with Rafe, she’ll be pining over EJ.

fan29
fan29

It’s Ejami or bust for me. I think Corday has it all wrong, the fans want EJAMI! I personally don’t know anyone who isn’t an EJami fan. EJami screams passion, hot chemistry and excitement anything else is just plain boring and not worth my time or even mention.

Deborah Kallus

Mr. Corday clearly does not have a good feel for what the viewers want if he thinks it is Safe. He might want to have a closer look at various boards to see that the vast majority of viewers want Ejami.

What I KNOW is that SAFE bores me to tears!

The last thing I want to see a great character like Sami Brady wasted on is a character, as boring as Roman!

That’s the problem with Rafe he has no substance! He can’t even carry his OWN storyline without Sami OR EJ involved!

Why? BECAUSE HE IS BORING!!!!

I want excitement, so I say EJAMI ALL THE WAY!!!

Sherry

That is very true..Not all SAFE fans post on boards…..There are a lot of SAFE fans….Rafe hasn’t had a story written for him without Sami or EJ, yet….HE is Sami’s true love and soulmate….Love SAFE!!!

EJami is what got me hooked on Days, and they certainly weren’t even friendly when I first saw them in a scene together. James and Ali bring so much chemistry to each scene. There’s no contest. This is a soap – we want drama, layered flawed characters, and chemistry, and that’s what you get with EJami! Safe is just that – safe, i.e. boring, bland, predictable.

EJAMI for sure.

The Sami that’s with Rafe is a pale and boring imitation of the real thing. This viewer wants EJami.

huskygrl
huskygrl

Why would you be interested in a relationship where Sami has to be completely lobotomized AND victimized in order to be part of the couple? I’m a Sami fan, so I want her with the man that knows how to treat a woman decently and not like a piece of property!

Keia
Keia

If that is true, then you don’t really want her with Rafe!

Afterall, he does seem to want to know EVERY move she makes!

Constant interrogation shouldn’t be a part of a relationship!

REALLY?
REALLY?

Rafe is your idea of a good man? A man who couldn’t understand why a mother would lie to him if it was the only way to save her child’s life? A man who left her for this reason? Who leaves the moment Sami is not a perfect angel? That’s ridiculous!

HAS

Thank you for saving it, GT! EJAMI was sinking the show. They’re lame at this point, and the show had to dumb Sami down too much for this to work. I hope you’re reshuffling in the right directions, and getting Sami back to being smart. She can continue to be impulsive and a little nuts, lol, but please no more stupid to trust anything EJ says or does. That just didn’t make any sense.

Sherry
Sherry

ITA!!!

EJ and SAMI!
EJ and SAMI!

I agree that they have been making Sami uncharacteristically dumb to not suspect EJ was behind the kidnapping, but that is what they do to her when they have her kiss EJ and pretend to not know why. Stop making Sami stupid! Have her find out the truth, finally realize she will never stop loving EJ and forgive him!

Key DemoFan
Key DemoFan

The writing for Ejami is too repulsive to recover from. While the actors have some chemistry, this viewer can’t get over the sick, sadistic events that have transpired between them on screen to ever accept them as a romantic pair. They turn my stomach. I just can’t watch.

Safe is no winner either. The actor chemistry falls flat (at least Ejami is sometimes enjoyable as enemies) and the actor who plays Rafe has no charisma in this role. Despite the writers’ wishful thinking for him to be the new John Black., the Rafe character is a dud. Ken Corday is seriously out of touch with the fans.

Bring back Lucas or Brandon for Sami, because neither Safe nor Ejami works. Sami’s character has been swirling the drain ever since getting involved with EJ and Rafe.

Mary
Mary

I just want the writers to worship EJ and Sami as much as they worship Safe.

Ejami have just as many if not more fans with crappy writing as Safe do and they’re getting all the props.

Ugh that interview made me so mad with ken c. NOOOOOOO safe! Ej and sami belong together and they are the only reason I have stayed with days! Their chemistry is amazing and what about the last 4 years of ejami and all the teasing they did and how ej won over lucas, all of that to go with a guy who hasnt even been on the show that long.. and they do not have chemistry like ej and sami do, this just infuriates me and I want to start a petition to send kens way and show him what the fans really want and that ej and sami are meant to be!!!

Kerri

I have to believe that Ken Corday has LOST his mind! Or else he just wants Days off the air?
Safe is a..a…a mockery of soap romance. It’s a sham and a SHAME to dare say that Sami Brady was or would ever be a stronger person for being with the uncouth, controlling coward that is Rafe Hernandez!
Whereas EJ and Sami —They set one another ablaze! The Ejami relationship is a genius strike of writing (though you’d never know it for long and long now) where the Dimera/Brady clans are distilled into the esence of uncontainable love, rampaging in its passion and frightful in the breath-stealing moments of furor.
Who are these “viewers” who supposedly root for Safe? I’ve yet to come across one in real life, though I have witnessed several non-practicing soap viewers (hey, you come to see me between 1 and 2 and sorry, you’ra have to deal) admit that EJ and Sami seem to have something that captures attention…and Safe gets laughed at.
You tell me…mayhaps after 26 years (‘most my whole life!) I don’t know anything about soaps afterall! Maybe Passions was really good, so great, in fact, that Days should be sacrificed for its junior reanactment? Just let me know and I’ll call it quits with the whole genre. Ejami or I really just don’t care anymore.

huskygrl

Rafe is the uncouth, controlling coward? Geez get a dictionary, you obviously don’t know what either of those words mean! And while you’re there look up romance too because RAPE isn’t part of that definition.

Rafe is the driest, most boring character on DAYS. The only way the writers could put Rafe with Sami is to take what made Sami special out of her and turn her into someone she isn’t, Carrie. Rafe couldn’t handle Sami not telling him about the Sydnappers, how could he handle Sami in 100% Samantha Gene Brady in all her glory? EJ doesn’t want her to change he loves her because of her darkness, not in spite of it. Rafe doesn’t have a clue who the REAL Sami Brady is. She hasn’t “matured” she’s changed into sister and if Corday wants Austin and Carrie part deux, then just bring back Austin and Carrie.

EJ understands Sami like no one else does. He knows her bad side, he’s seen it first hand. Sami knows who Ej is, understands him and why he does what he does. She knows he struggles with his DiMera side and doesn’t always win in his struggle against it. It’s why they’re such a compelling couple. They’re not a remake of every other couple on soaps. They’re not average. They’re not mundane. They’re fascinating because you never know what they could be up to.

Rafe and Sami? I think the writers are trying to make them the next Marlena and Roman, Carrie and Austin, Belle and Shawn. Really? Samantha Gene Brady? She is no “next” anyone and together with EJ, they’re not “new” remake of a couple who have already been in Salem.

They break the mold of all the couples we’ve already seen on daytime. And daytime needs something new and original to shake it up.

EJAMI will always have a chance; Lucas knew that no matter what Sami couldn’t get EJ out of her heart and even if there is a SAFE reunion come labour day, Rafe too will soon enough learn that EJ holds a big chunk of Sami’s heart…EJAMI will prevail! GO EJAMI GO!!!!!!

Carol

Rafe will not be able to live with the “real” Sami. He has walked away how many times from her. EJ loves her for who she is and what she does unconditionally. Why not give this couple a real chance together?

Ken Corday made me one happy fan with this interview. It will be wonderful to turn on the show and not have to FF or just turn off the Ejami scenes. I hate them together. Rafe is a great guy, I can support him with Sami. Bring back Lucas and Rafe/Lucas/Sami can battle it out! NOW THAT’S A SHOW!!!

It was the greatest gift that he could have given us fans. Knowing I won’t have to skip anymore episodes because I don’t want to be nauseated and bored watching Ejami scenes. I’m so happy! The viewers want Safe and I’m relieved, although I’d rather have Lucas.

This viewer wants Ejami !

Jenny

I want Ejami too Linda!! They are the only reason why I watch Days. Safe is soooo boring, *yawn*. Ejami share passion, excitement, humour, and love, even though Sami hasn’t admitted that to herself yet. But she will one day. She will realize that EJ is the only man for her. He loves her for who she is, faults and all. For me, it’s Ejami or bust!!!!! EJAMI FOREVER!!!!!!!

Maria

i think it is ridiculous to put Safe together..Ejami belong together and are much
more exciting and passionnate .Safe is watching paint dry .
i think what Ken corday said was a slap in the face for all Ejami fans .
Ejami fans have been waiting 4 years for a real shot but they never actually got it.

i dont think i will be watching after labor day .

That’s ok, because all the other viewers were tuned out during the Ejami fiasco!

I think that what doesn’t kill Ejami will only make them stronger. We all knew that once the Sydnapping secret broke that there was a chance that Sami would run back to that other guy, however, I honestly believe that by the time that happens Sami will be deeply, madly in love with EJ. So if the other guy takes her back it will be a Sami that can’t get EJ off the brain or out of her heart!!

Ejami will be together, it’s just going to take some crap for episodes until we finally get to see it!!

Samanthat belongs with the Father of her children and her soulmate EJ Dimera.If they insist on forceing :safe: onto people..my fave character,just needs to pack up and leave,she completely disappears with this boring character.I WANT EJAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Annie

Sami belongs with the father of her children and soulmate Lucas. But since he is not an option right now I’ll take Rafe. That isn’t as disgusting and vile a pairing as her and EJ. They’re never going to work together, never.

I found Lumi pretty disgusting.A man who sent her to her death,for his own selfish reasons.Lumi got past it tho,didnt they?Ejami can get past theirs!Whats disgusting to me,is seeing Sami crawl,and grovel for Luis’s attention.We ALL have opinions,,DONT WE??’

This viewer,my daughter and my hubby are ALL EJAMIS~

Gail

I think the handwriting has been on the wall for SAFE for quite some time now. Both Corday and Sweeney have acknowledged that Sami’s character has changed to a good girl and they both like and want that. Sami needs and deserves to be paired with a good guy, Rafe, who will love her and her kids without reservation and manipulations and lies.

From the first time Rafe and Sami were together in WP, it was obvious to me that they were meant to be together. The writers tried, it, the fans loved it and it has been a super love story ever since.
SAFE ALL THE WAY BABY!!!!!

Stacy
Stacy

Really? Huh…because when I saw Ali in person over the past weekend she said she was VERY excited to see Sami go back to her “bad girl” persona. I have yet to hear of an actress that enjoys playing the “good girl”. The only…and I mean ONLY.., character that has loved Sami no matter what her flaws is EJ. Sami is down right boring on screen right now. Bring on the real Sami and let the EJAMI sparks fly! 🙂

KMM

I just saw an interview with Alison saying she was excited that Sami was a heroine. The chemistry with Ali and Galen is apparent off screen and on.

Sherry

Don’t you guys know the actors say things to encourage whatever group they are with….If she’s with Ejami’s she says she likes to be the bad girl..If she’s with SAFE’s she says she likes to be the good girl…It’s what they say when they are NOT around fans that counts and Alison has said that she likes playing the good girl after 15 yrs of playing the villian and she likes the love story of SAFE….That was in the Q&A video on youtube with questions from both sides..It must be very difficult for her to satisfy both fanbases and I think she does a great job!!! I guess we will just have to wait and see who Sami chooses but in my book she is much better off with Rafe!!!!

Regina
Regina

Ej and Sami as toxic, disgusting, vile and frankly they are boring with the same story that played out two years ago repeating itself virtually every step of the way. I think it would help DOOL immensily if they FINALLY made the decision to end Ejami once and for all. She and the man that has victimized her and her family for 4 years now should really have no connection whatsoever. Make Sydney Nicole and Ej’s baby, and bring back Bryan Dattilo to reprise his role as Lucas for the revelation that Stefano and Kate held the truth from both Sami and Lucas that Johnny is really his son. End the nightmare that is Ejami, it has been sucking the life out of this show slowly.

KMM

AMEN Regina!!!

I double that. Please I hate when Soaps tries to make some rapes end in a poor defenseless baby. I love babies, no rape babies. Even that will bring me back as a viewer. Ej and Sami have ruined the show. Give me a real love story

Keia

Wrong Regina!

It’s the bad writing that has been sucking the life out of the show, NOT Ejami!

Regina
Regina

I’m not wrong…I have an opinion that differs from yours…and frankly the writing wasn’t THIS bad in 2007 and the show was still sucking then….IMHO, EJami HAS and continues to suck the life out of this show….and I stick by that statement. Sami wasn’t rewarded with a child being produced out of rape, and neither should Ej. The various decisions this show has made over the years has tanked it.

Sherry
Sherry

WOW!!! I couldn’t agree more!! Bravo!!! Nicely put!!!!

Let me give you people a history lesson Sami was not raped it was consentual , if she was really raped by EJ she would be very afraid of him, but she wasn’t in fact she sought out his help on a number of ocassions, plus I think Sami would know what rape is since she was raped before and she was very afraid of him and she kept her distance from him. Now getting back to Sami and EJ the middle part of that scene is missing which would have been the most telling part, I still do not know how people can come to the conclusion of it being rape without the middle part of that scene, there is not much evidence to support rape.
P.S. I support EJ and Sami they are the couple with the most chemistry.

Grace
Grace

I’m not a fan of either pair, since she really belongs with her true love Lucas. But since Lucas is not an option at the moment, I have to go with Rafe. Rafe hasn’t held her at gunpoint and raped her. Rafe hasn’t kidnapped her child and told her that her child is dead. Rafe hasn’t tried to kill her (now) ex-husband. Rafe hasn’t shot her stepfather in the head and stolen his kidney. Rafe hasn’t tried to rip her unborn twins from her womb in order to harvest their organs. Rafe hasn’t gassed her aunt and uncle. In fact, Rafe’s only crime is being not quite as interesting as Lucas, but we can deal with that later.
Rafe isn’t a dangeous sociopath, so he wins this battle.

Elly
Elly

Love really love these freaking double standards..sarcasm sarcasm..Lucas tried to kill Sami he did some really other evil deeds against her for pete’s sake..so maybe some people who can’t separate soap plots fantasy from real life don’t want Sami with her attempted murderer also…but of course we can accept Sami with Rafe because he is a good guy even if they are boring together, they don’t have chemistry and people will FF their scenes..nice really nice to each his own after all ! lol

Grace

Actually I can’t stand Rafe with Sami either. I no longer watch the show because ejami has turned it into a craptastic nightmare. Congrats on supporting the pair that will cause the cancellation of the show!

I’ve stopped watching the show because of Sami and her rapist. If Days stops the horror that is the rapemance, I might come back. EJ belongs nowhere near his victim. It’s been vile and disgusting to even think about.

Tina

And murderance with Sami and Lucas oh yeah so fun oh and boringance, controllingance with Sami and Rafe : so fun !!! At this state she is better single than with these vile, disgusting Lucas and Rafe. LOL.

Hate to tell you this, it’s called a rapemance because EJ did RAPE Sami. Lucas never murdered Sami. If he had, we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

I am not sure what fans KC is talking about but all the Days fans I know are waiting for EJAMI!!!!! I think his opinions are just that , his opinions and I will hang on. If they go the boring and safe route that will be one more hour of my day that I will find something else to watch. I also will pray that James finds somewhere else to shine because his talent is underappreciated.

No contest, Safe all the way. Ali and Galen have amazing chemistry.

I want SAFE! They are the best thing that happened to DOOL since the days of Jack & Jen. Thanks, Mr. Corday and your writers! I applaud you for choosing a storyline that is base on true love, honesty and devotion! It will be a long boring summer, but I and my co SAFE fans are looking at the light at the end of the tunnel.
Woohoo! Give us some SAFE loving, pls!
SAFE all the way!

Cindy

I think EJ will prevail. EJ and Sami is clearly the more interesting and more complex storyline. The love story is one of star-crossed lovers who have overcome much to end up together. What has the other one to offer? A couple that was manufactured to facilitate a real life pregnancy? Pffftt!

EJ will have his heart’s desire-Samantha.

Sarah
Sarah

I’m with Lisa. I didn’t really taking a liking to Days until Safe arrived. Safe is the best choice and they need to move on from old storylines like Ejami. I also like Ejanna. They are hot and sexy!

Felicia

If Days has any smarts, they’ll never again even hint at a pairing of Sami with her rapist. It brings the ratings down every time they try it, and it seems they’ve finally realized it. Most viewers find rapemance disgusting. We don’t want to see crimes against women rewarded.

Personally, I don’t really care for Rafe and Sami together, either. He’s a bore, and she’s a shadow of her old self. I want the old, strong Sami back, who didn’t sit around waiting for others to fix her problems for her. I really truly hope Corday is telling the truth about her once more taking things into her own hands. I’d like to see her single for a while, getting a career, spending time with her kids. If there has to be a man in her life, the only one that worked for me was Lucas.

Susan

Sami is a rapist also, she raped Austin!!

Lola

Lucas is her attempted-murderer : oh my good to pairing them together is so insulting for women !! Please it is just a soap. eyeroll.
p.s : most viewers find murderance disgusting, we don’t want crimes against women being rewarded. And their wedding was not a big in the ratings.

The interview made no sense with what I’m seeing on screen. While EJ hasn’t told Sami the truth – he isn’t manipulating her. And he isn’t pushing her. EJ didn’t just take Sydney for the heck of it – people put things in motion – ie Nicole, Sami, Stefano and Rafe (who tried to adopt EJ’s daughter) that sent EJ over the edge. Luckily he brought himself back and did the right thing all on his own. I like Galen, and I’m ok with Rafe – but James Scott and EJ are just off the charts good and the story with Sami is just pure soap gold. If Ken said it – I don’t think he believes it. It was a tactic to keep the Safe fans (there are some but not as many as Ejami) watching. If Sami goes back to Rafe it will be temporary at best. Her heart is with EJ and always has been. They are stretching that story out as long as they can. Ejami is where the buzz is at.

Sherry
Sherry

SAFE fans are not watching right now because of the sickening Ejami retread that failed 4 yrs ago and will fail again….I for one do not want to see Sami with her tormenter..And Ej did not just come to his senses….He wanted to be Sami’s manufactured “hero” because of what Anna said to him that Rafe will always be Sami’s hero….Ej doesn’t have the capapcity to love anyone but himself…He has called his own son a liar when Johnny was telling the truth to Theo….He called Johnny an “it” to Nicole when he was crying for Sami…Noone buys that EJ is turning good…I haven’t seen that posted anywhere..He is still the drug lord of Salem and into all kinds of dirty dealings..He is unredeemable in my book. SAFE love lasts forever because it isn’t manufactured and based on lies and manipulation!!!

Susan
Susan

Sami and EJ have never been given a chance to have a romance, something and or someone has ALWAYS gotten in their way, Safe is just that, safe for Sami, boring, yawn and after 25 years of watching Days I will be done if Safe pervails.

What most disappointed me about this interview is that KC felt the need to reveal the plot. What a dumb crazy move. The other thing about this inteveiw that has me upset is that he assumed that all viewers want Rafe and Sami together. Whether or not if I am a EJ/Sami fan or a Rafe/Sami fan, he should not have spoken for all viewers. I don’t need anyone telling me what I want to see on my televison, so he should have not presumed anything. I can see how Rafe may appeal as a better choice for Sami. However, I can see how EJ/Sami appeal to some. The thing is, they have changed the Sami character so much, she has been watered down beyond belief, so yes watered down Sami does fit with Rafe. Sami and Rafe can be the nice boring “safe” couple. But, yes there is a but, some people perfer the hellraiser Sami and that Sami fits perfectly with EJ. I think that some of the old Sami needs to resurface and if old Sami resurface, Rafe could not handle it. What I have seen is EJ is willing to have all of Sami, he doesn’t care if she is an angel or a demon, he just loves her unconditionally, but could Rafe do that. I don’t think so. In closing, I think I perfer EJ and Sami as a couple.

DJ

Exactly how I feel. Not only is Corday saying that the best couple won’t win, but that the real Sami is forvever buried. If that’s the ending, I sure don’t want to read the book.

saminrafe
saminrafe

Safe all the way!!!!!!!!!! They are the major reason why i am watching days right not.
They have a relationship that is not based on lies and manipulations like EJ and Sami,
they have romance ,freindship, compassion ect….. they are fun to watch together.

Stacy
Stacy

They have a relationship not based on lies and manipulations??? Do you watch this show?

Sami not only hid the fact that she was pregnant from EJ, but also to Rafe who was supposed to be protecting her. Rafe lied to everyone just as much as Sami did about Grace and where she came from. He lied/hid the truth about his other “true love”. He tried to adopt a baby that he knew wasn’t his. He dumped her the minute he found out she lied about the ransome notes instead of understanding the determination of a mother who’s lost her daughter. Yeah…he is a real saint isn’t he.

KMM
KMM

No need to be rude Stacy and yes she watches the show. I think the point is that Rafe and Sami have a pure relationship and Sami and Ej do not.

saminrafe
saminrafe

Yes Stacy i do watch the show and i have been watching since i was 15 or so and i am now in my early 40’s.
I love the pairing of Rafe and Sami and i hope the writers continue with them, i don’t enjoy Ej and Sami together , never have. never will
By the way i never said Rafe was a saint ………buttttttttt in my opinion he is close

Kazz
Kazz

Any possibility of a true pairing of Sami with EJ died in Dec. 2006. Days just wasn’t smart enough to bury that carcas right away and it has been a useless burden to the show ever since. Any attempt to pair the two always sinks the ratings and it ruins every character and storyline involved. I could care less about Safe, Sami should just be alone if Days isn’t going to bring Lucas back, but no matter what else happens Days needs to make a permanent, decisive, irreversible end to EJ/Sami and the faster the better.

Keia

Unless you work for Nielsen, your analysis of the ratings based on Ejami, is without merit.

Please some lumi fans have to stop this insane resentment against the character of Ej and the pairing of Ejami ! It is just a soap for pete’s sake, get over it, this obsession is pathetic and doesn’t favor you believe me.
p.s : and i liked Lumi but this pairing is over, maybe one day Lucas will come back but even if it is the case not sure Sami will be with him, the guy was nothing outside of her and it really destroyed his character at the end of the day. So for your sake get over it, at least for now..maybe one day he will come back but for now Stop your sick hatred, resentment, obsession..it is really really pathetic.

SocRMum1

I don’t think anything is ‘now and forever’ on soaps. As the story has been written to this point, it’s clear that there will be yet another fracture in the EJami relationship when the truth about EJ’s involvement in the Sydnapping is revealed. And I suspect that’s when Safe will reunite. However, I believe that’s simply just the next phase of the story. EJami will always be in one another’s orbit…they share children and a connection that has withstood far greater obstacles. But the HUGE thing in their favor is the white hot chemistry that exists between Alison Sweeney and James Scott. It’s like lightening in a bottle – and I believe the powers that be at DAYS are well aware of it. EJami won’t be over once the truth comes out. If their story survived 12/29 and they went on to have another child together, this will simply be a blip in the radar. The legions of EJami fans are simply a testament to the power and potential this pairing has shared from day one.
EJami = Inevitable.

Sherry

I am hoping that Sydney is Ej and Nicoles baby and Johnny is really Lucas’..Now wouldnt that be something..Absolutely NOTHING to tie Sami and Ej together…One can only hope that’s the case!!!

sophie
sophie

Oh please Ej treated Nicole far worse than he treated Sami and the Ejole relationship was even more toxic with all the lies and deceptions; actually it was based on it ! As for Lucas and Sami : they also have been very toxic together..but whatever for some it is really everything to separate Ej and Sami..it is almost like you are more interested and obsessed in hating a soap pairing than watching a soap for the stories and supporting some pairings you could appreciate..it is just pathetic, i pity you really if it is your way of entertainment..poor Sherry…pîtiful really..

Scarlett

Sami is the only one for EJ, and EJ is the only one for Sami. They belong together as a couple, and as a family with their children.

iluvej

EJ absolutely has a chance at Sami. I prefer EJami and it is because they have more history and two kids together so they seem to me the obvious choice, and the fact that James and Ali have more chemistry and sex appeal than any other pairing on the show right now. Realistically, the story can go either way, but this EJami fan will never give up on wanting a real love story for these two fabulously-flawed people.

Ruby
Ruby

THIS VIEWER WANTS EJAMI!

EJ and Sami have by far the more compelling love story, history and chemistry. They are the best couple on the show. Fans haven’t stuck around through endless trials and tribulations over 4 years for nothing. There is a reason EJ and Sami continue to be so popular.

Redemption, love and forgiveness are recurring themes in all EJami scenes and I believe that is not a coincidence. I ‘think’ viewers want a satisfying ending to this storyline which really began back in MAY 2008 and that ending is Sami and EJ reuniting and having the family and unconditional love they both have always wanted. Hopefully the show will deliver.

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”
