DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Sami Tries to Splain Her Way Out of Her Affair with Lucas to EJ as Alison Sweeney Turns In Bravura Performance

Courtesy/NBC

On Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the first since the Tokyo Olympics took centerstage on NBC, provided plenty of fireworks, especially in key scenes between EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) and Sami (Alison Sweeney).

When we left off, EJ was armed with a letter from Kristen (Stacy Haiduk) about Sami’s cheating ways with Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) which landed in his hands thanks to Nicole (Arianne Zucker) – who wants payback for Sami, after Sami destroyed her relationship with Eric (Greg Vaughan).

It all goes down when EJ opens a champagne bottle for him and Sami and begins with a toast to his wife who is “beautiful, strong, and also a ‘lying adulteress.”’ Game on!

While at first, she tried to deny it, EJ gets her to admit she had sex with Lucas. However, Sami begins to get herself into deeper hot water, when she insists it didn’t mean anything, but EJ firedback that it meant something to him.  Sami recalls how Lucas and her were locked in a wine cellar fearing they would die, which brought them together and that they only slept together one time.

But not so fast there, Sami! EJ pulls out the nail in Sami’s coffin, the letter from Kristen where she tells him that Sami was having sex with Lucas in her mother’s guest room.  After a failed attempt to defend herself, EJ gives her one last chance to come clean. She then admits she slept with Lucas twice, and how she had felt lonely and that she was fearing her marriage to EJ had fallen apart, and she even throws up to him, his affair with Abigail several years ago.

While reminding him they found a way to work through his cheating ways. EJ insists what happened with Abigail was different because they weren’t married at the time.

Later in the episode, Sami shows up at Nicole’s door loaded for bear. She says, as Rafe (Galen Gering) looks on, “Rafe, you better get out of here. The bitch and I need to talk.”

Throughout the episode, Alison Sweeney delivered as she always had in Sami’s meaty storyline moments. and reminds us all of why Sami is one of the all-time best characters in the history of soaps as played in Alison’s capable hands.

And as first reported by Soap Opera Digest, (in their latest issue on newsstands now) things take another turn this week when Sami is kidnapped, which will help facilitate Sweeney’s exit from the canvas for now as well.

So, what did you think of the showdown scenes between EJ and Sami? Comment below.

Great scenes and performances for both Alison and Daniel. I really like Daniel as EJ. He was on fire in this episode and Allison was brilliant. On Soap Opera Central, yesterday, I read that Alison is leaving DAYS. I thought she signed on for a full-year, I can’t imagine that has passed already? I don’t understand now, I thought the Summer Promo were promoting LUMI as a couple?… Is this a short break for Alison? Or, is she properly exiting the role, again? If she is exciting… why bring back EJ? Ugh, just when I was loving all the EJ… Read more »

OMG, sure we’ll see her run away again, as is her usual M.O. Maybe Kristin will come back and load her up in a trunk and ship her off to the island where she’s been keeping all the other abductees. Aloha, Sammy.

It was fantastic! Such a great way to come back after the break. I’m here for it all!! The line to Rafe was icing on the cake!

Sami, Sami, Sami–Oh, me, oh, my—-you are dealing with the ferocious, hypocritical DiMeras. “Do as I say and not as I do”….So reminiscent of a certain body of Orwellian governing, so imminently close.
Karma, Sami—-Karma, Nicole—keep your legs crossed.

It was ok. I think he could’ve forgave her since hes no saint.she brought him back to good health and his treatment of her was cold. Had he appreciated all her care for him she wouldn’t have turned to an ex. As for nicole like shes no saint either but its also Eric’s fault for leaving his new bride home.the writer could’ve gotten another Eric since the other left.these days they arrnt allowing couples to actually make it.Their all keeping secrets having affairs get taken or are presumed dead man losing memory.

In this situation, especially with Nicole and Sami, it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black, and no amount of cleaning will work on these two.

Sammi’s one of my favorites because most of the time , she stands strong regardless of the consequences.

As I change the topic: Lani is a hypocrite ; she can’t forgive her aunt her pass deeds ; however , she can forgive Kristen. However , I shouldn’t be surprised because these Soaps as other shows we watch and movies that we see reflect what these producers and writers have experienced in life. Fiction imitates life : not the other way around!

Boop,
Right you are. I often wondered how she could just overlook her crimes, especially being a cop and then turn around and treat her like she was Mother Teresa.

That Gabi is a piece of work, certainly with no class the way she looks and acts. She just takes Sami’s necklace without giving a damn who it might belong to. Certainly someone will recognize it as belonging to Sami, maybe even EJ himself.
Speaking of piece of work! Nicole acting all pathetic, crying all over Rafe, while her daughter tends to herself in another room. Oh, how I wish Daniel was still alive to take this poor kid and give her a loving home.

Never could get into the old EJ and Sammie due to the rape origins. EJ and Sammie 2.0 seem to be a more natural fit to me. While Sammie is away I can’t wait to see Abigail return and reside in the DiMera mansion with EJ and Chad and all that history.
Also would like for EJ to meet Gwen. She has chemistry with every man she meets and boy would she give Sammie a run for her money if EJ and Gwen hooked up. Can we say who killed Gwen Devereux.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ciara Saves Baby Bo with Assist from Heavenly Bo; Tripp Shifts Into Satan & Crashes Through Window

May Sweeps are in full bloom, and on Monday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the supernatural was front and center, and what Salemites hope will now and forever, put Satan behind them once and for all.

In story, Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is one tough mama. She and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) track down AllDevil (Lindsay Arnold) and her dastardly partner in crime, Charlie Dale (another guest return of Emmy-winner Mike Manning), as the devil starts the Ceremony of Transference to make their baby a mini-Satan. However, AllDevil has a plan to keep Cin at bay. She uses a protective pentagram wall, and electrocutes Ben from penetrating it.  Then, when Ciara has to save her baby, a white light comes upon her, and she is able to push through the barrier, push out Satan, and regain her baby boy in her arms.

Tripp (Lucas Adams) arrives on the scene and clunks Charlie over the head with a baseball bat before he tries to kill Ben. When Ben comes to and meets his young son, “Bo”, Ciara tells Tripp that AllDevil is headed to St. Luke’s where he and Johnny (Carson Boatman), who was also at the scene, head off to find her.

At University Hospital, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) is going to get Baby “Bo” checked out as Ben and Ciara spend time with their little one in the hospital room. All of a sudden, a white light appears and Ciara’s dad, Bo Brady (the return of Peter Reckell) comes through the light. Both Ben and Ciara see the iconic Bo, and Ciara tells her dad to meet his grandson, and thanks him for saving the day at the cemetery.

Inside the church, while upstairs, AllDevil flashes back to when Satan was inhabiting Marlena (Deidre Hall) and set fire to the place of worship 25 years ago, and fans get the actual clip of the classic moment in DAYS history. Just then, Tripp and Johnny find Satan upstairs ready to torch the place. Johnny gets a good ole’ toss across the room, leaving Tripp to fend off the devil.

But helps is on the way as Father Eric (Greg Vaughan), John and Marlena (Deidre Hall) are there to save the day; as they begin an exorcism, of sorts. In defiance, we see AllDevil begin to crack Allie’s neck as everyone looks on in horror. Tripp admitting his love for Allie, tells the devil to come into him and let Allie go.  The shift happens as Tripp is now the devil, and in order to fight off hurting Allie or anyone, selflessly jumps out the church window and looks in dire straits.

So, what did you think of this climatic episode of Days of our Lives, with more to come with the return of Bo Brady this week? Comment below.
