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: Julie Stands Up to MarDevil; Susan Seaforth Hayes Reminds Us Why She is Soap Royalty

Friday’s episode of Days of our Lives brought with it, let’s just say, not your typical Turkey Day episode in Salem.  It also moved the story along with MarDevil being exposed!

At Julie’s (Susan Seaforth Hayes) Thanksgiving, Doug (Bill Hayes) shouts that Marlena (Deidre Hall) is the devil. However, Marlena still insists that Doug is delusional and needs to be locked back up.  It is then that Julie stands by her husband.  Julie is on to Marlena and wonders if she should call “Marlena,” who she truly is at the moment, “Satan”.

Courtesy/NBC

Shawn (Brandon Beemer) and Belle (Martha Madison) also believe something is terribly wrong.  Marlena tells them this is ridiculous, but Belle wants to hear what else Doug has to say.  Then, Shawn handcuffs Marlena to take her down to the station for questioning.  Julie doesn’t believe for one second that handcuffs will restrain the devil, and she was right! MarDevil breaks the cuffs and flings Shawn across the Thanksgiving dinner table complete with food-a-flying, leaving him unconscious.

Now with yellow eyes and lights flickering, MarDevil goes after Doug and Julie, but Julie stops Satan in his tracks professing “Not today, Satan!” Just then, MarDevil grabs a knife and in a counter move, Julie holds out her rosary saying love is the power and that the God of love is stronger than the devil! Julie defiantly tells MarDevil that the truth is out and Satan’s reign of terror is over! But MarDevil turns the tables and sneers, “It will never be over!”

It was in these scenes opposite Deidre Hall, that Susan Seaforth Hayes shined as she has done for decades given the material, as Julie went the toe-to-toe with the devil and Susan made us believe that love can win out over everything, especially the love of Doug and Julie.

In another touching moment in the episode, Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk) tells EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) from her hospital bed, how she used herself as a human sacrifice for the devil to keep John alive and to protect her son.  An emotional EJ can’t believe that Susan was willing to die for him. However, Susan explains that a mother always protects their child and she would do it all over again when faced with that decision.  Haiduk and Feurriegel also delivered in these scenes.

With John (Drake Hogestyn) freed by Anna (Leann Hunley) and Tony (Thaao Penghlis), he eventually makes his way into the Horton house to confront MarDevil, but Satan is gone.  Instead, John finds Shawn with Doug and Julie and they inform him that MarDevil had left to fulfill her true purpose.  Just then, Marlena arrives at Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal). We fade to black.

Now below, check out Susan Seaforth Hayes in a scene from Friday’s episode as Julie fends off the devil.

Then, let us know, what did you think of Susan’s performance? What do you think MarDevil will do next to Ben and Ciara and “their” baby? Did you enjoy the Susan and EJ scenes? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
