Regardng the February Sweeps Preview::

A mixed bag. Glad to see the show’s elders getting romantic stories. Love the cunning of Skate and the charm of Magic. Not wild about Bope. Prefer Carbo myself. Am refusing the contrived pairing of EJ and Taylor. What a complete joke! Don’t see it happening with Ejole either, EJ’s a one woman man. Thanks to TPTB for decimating Bricole, Mate, and Phloe. You make leaving you so easy.

I will never buy EJ with Taylor. If EJ falls for Taylor then he is not the EJ we have grown to know and love. Taylor is such a turn off for me. EJ belongs with Sami they are two peas in a pod. EJ will have to do a 360 to be compatible with Taylor and I don’t really want EJ to change that much. Sami is dull with Rafe is EJ will be dull with Taylor. WHy can’t these writers get it straight and put the right people together. EJami would make a great gray couple fighting Stefano.

They all look gorgeous and from the promos seem like they know how to lighten up and have fun together. I love the creative idea of looking through a window. These must have been awesome up on the NYC JumboTron. Beautifully done, Days should be proud.

Oh and you can never have too much of Galen Gering! Come on, the guy is hot-cha-cha-cha!!!

My vote goes to Sami and Rafe!! Lovin their smokin hawt chemistry. It sizzles up the screen.
Besides being a hot couple, they are a natural-looking couple who seem to enjoy working together.

SAFE is a natural looking couple because they radiate friendship more than hot sizzling romance. Hot sizzling romance belongs to EJAMI. The video had too much Rafe and he was with a variety of women, yet EJ was restricted to very few scenes. James is the lead actor on DAYS and the emmy nominated one, he should be given priority not Galen. In any event have been given good vibes for EJAMI’s future by reliable source so the video means nothing.

Hate fake Rafe but I love that Nicole will find out how arrogant and obsessed EJ really is that he would be so jealous of Sami’s /Johnny’s/Sidney’s affections that he would endanger the people around him with fake Rafe. EJ is no hero, and Taylor no heroine… so let’s end the facade.
