So sensitive of Days to feature a violent sex scene between a heroine and the character who once raped her.
Really, I get why TPTB like that pairing in theory (chemistry etc.) but they do everything in their power to make it repulsive to anyonre with a minimum of decency.

No more no less sensitive than Days trying to sell a love story between Nicole and the man who once tried to strangle her to death. I don’t see anyone getting up in arms about that aspect of the EJole pairing in the last few months. Hypocritical much? And besides, you want to judge soap characters and pairings based on real life standards of morals and ethics when these characters never really pay for their crimes anyway? Really?

Just because they did it elsewhere doesn’t make it right this time. Obnoxious much? Ignorant much?

In any case and no matter how someone wants to interpret what happened between EJ and Sami some centuries ago, it was never violent.

There was never morality based in soaps..and if you sit there and judge dont watch.. EJ and Sami were never a normal couple and Sami was never ever a herione go look up her past…..that is what makes them tick..and for EJAMI fans wanting more..

nhuixnhuix, Sami ISN’T a heroine, even during the previous writing regime, heroine’s do not attempt murder on a defenseless man and then stand by and watch her boyfriend throw away his ethics, his job and his sister nor do they put their welfare above the welfare of their son.
Sami and EJ are and always have been a volitile couple, it’s who they are. Their passions run deep from hate and yes, to love. We won’t get the love right away, but I’m tuning in hoping we’ll get it eventually.

FINALLY!!! I was wondering when this reset was finally going to get some new life breathed into it. Whether you’re a fan of EJ and Sami or not, the repercussions of that kiss will affect so many characters and will definitely stir the pot. This is precisely what a good soap should do. Drama, drama, DRAMA!!! That’s what the viewers need and crave. And what better way than to involve two characters who’ve been dancing around each other for the past 5 years. It’s so wrong but oh so right!

It is also a great opportunity to bring EMMY worthy character Sami Brady on our screens. Were did our favourite villain go? She is much older now and she has kids so I would not expect her to be her immature conniving self. But Sami was never a damsel in distress. She was a strong woman and no one messed with her! I want that character back 🙂

I’m very excited to see all of this very soapy drama unfold between EJ & Sami – more excited than I’ve been about Days in far too long.

James and Alison are sure to provide us with an outstanding, Emmy-worthy performance during the outpouring of emotion that will characterize their upcoming scenes. I know that I will be riveted to the screen and hoping for more interaction between EJ & Sami as the story continues.

I loved the weekly preview! I’ve watched it 5 times already. It’s great to see Ali Sweeney and James Scott get back into their element. They are great at doing the raw and emotionally charged scenes! As for Sami and EJ’s characters, just from that quick hint in the weekly preview, they seeme to blame themselves as much as they do each other for Johnny being missing. I’m excited to see how it all develops! It’s raw, juicy Days!

EJAMI are the best ever. I love them and I have tuned out for the past few years due to the boring as paint SAFE and the terrible EJOLE. But I cant wait for this and I cant wait to see the ratings go up because of it. EJAMI= Ratings GOLD

Teresa
Guest

LMAO .. Good luck with that. Ejami have not brought ratings in years no matter how many times they Screw, Rape, have raped, Steal eachothers child, or destroy eachother.
They DO have chemistry,, But its always used badly.
Marlena and Stephano have chemistry too, But writers dont write rediculous stories to destroy them.. Its not even about Safe .. break rthem up, keep them .. whatever… But this garbage wont bring ratings.. Just a few 100 die hard ejami’s
Only GOOD writers and stories improve ratings and we STILL dont have that.

Horrible thing to say about EJAMI’s. There are thousands of EJAMI fans. They have MAJOR chemistry even more than the god-awful EJOLE and SAFE, even some friends of mine are SAFE fans. Though I will agree with you that their chemistry is used badly ALL the time and the current terrible writing is really impacting on the show.

Will people PLEASE stop saying that EJami=ratings gold. You don’t know that. Quite the contrary, they haven’t increased the ratings before, so why would they now? A couple doesn’t make/break the show! EJami is no exception. Yes, many viewers like them, but there’s a great deal of hatred for this non couple too. Hello? Moreover, everyone have their faves (couples, characters , storylines) & have different reasons for tuning into the show. So it incredibly irritates me when people claim EJami=ratings gold or ratings lead, when they have no proof to back that up. And, with all due respect, if… Read more »

Well I haven’t been excited like this in well I don’t actually remember when, it’s been so long where I would be counting down the hours to watch another episode of Days!! This promo brought back all of those feelings of anticipation to watch the show!! James and Alison have amazing onscreen chemistry, this little sneakpeak just rocked me to my core it was so UNBELIVEABLY RAW!!

Reduculus that The Idiopts that be never learn. Most Ejami’s hate A.S and Love J.S.. All this does is priovide tittilationfor them, destruction for Sami, and its a sad .. sad thing.. We were promiused “Romance” . And excitement.. This borders on Sado masochistic.. And if Ejami’s think this will lead to a happy ever after it wont .. But I dont think they care, nor do they care if Sami si destroyed.. They Want teenage Sami and wont accept her as marturing.. They Hate Safe and will risk losing DOOL to destroy Safe..

LOVE THIS PROMO! I’m so excited to have something else to watch on Days besides just Matthew Ashford’s amazing performances. I love that Sami isn’t going on blind faith anymore. She seems to be the only Brady thinking logically these days, and it’s about time. Smart Sami is back. Acceptance without question doesn’t equal maturity. Submission to the pressures and expectations of your family, to the point where you’re still going against your natural instinct and better judgement well into your thirties does not equal maturity. In fact, it means the opposite. Sami was not comfortable bringing her kids to… Read more »

I’m THRILLED that we may have a chance at Ejami. But that’s not the only story that I’m drooling over. I’m interested in the Dimera/Alice connection as well as the Jack, Jen and Dr. Dan story. It’s been looking like there may be a Chad, Abbie and Mel story going on.

The thing is, is that there are Lots more going on and involving all the characters. Story content. That is what will make or break the show.

I can hardly wait for the EJ and Sami scenes!

don’t worry people who know what is chemistry SEE IT. it is maybe one of the couple actors strongest on-screen chemistry i have ever seen on my screen..to know that writers NEVER really use it to write good stories is a freaking shame..no wonder soaps are dying..

lew
Guest

Hello, I now what chemistry is and I don’t see it with those two. Sami is great with Rafe and EJ and Nicole bring the heat. Sami has come too far to fall back into old habits. The soaps are failing, because no one seems to learn from their past mistakes and stories are replayed over and over. If they are your favorite couple, then that’s cool and you are probably not alone. But I am surprised by this move and if Sami becomes pregnant by EJ again, I will be through with this show.

the truth
Guest
the truth

Ej and Nicole bring NOTHING imo and Sami and Rafe barf..can’t even comment about this horror..but of course to each his own, as for the characters growing..hello of course they do but they don’t need some contrived and fake makeover and have to keep the flaws which in the first place made them complex and interesting..you want to watch Caroline and Charles Ingalls well watch but you will be the only one (and at least Michael Landon was far more talented than the guy playing Rafe..don’t know his name)

Avelina

I agree with “the truth” EJOLE are soooooooooooo boring that I feel like ripping my hair out and SAFE are to barf. I would rather scratch my nails on a blackboard than watch those terrible couples. Many people are through with this show due to the current couples and we will see who brings in the ratings come November 18. Goodbye EJOLE and Hello lovely EJAMI.

I think if Sami and EJ get involved, Rafe will end up with Carrie. Or perhaps Sami will get pregnant with Ej’s kid again, and pass it off as Rafe’s, or surprisingly confess. I hate seeing Sami back with EJ, but I think it may be a fling because they are upset. I also think that someone Will may have made angry, over the website gamling thing, may be behind it all.

Finally something INTERESTING and EXITING !! Otherwise this soap seems a snoozefest, i don’t watch anymore but if they reunite Ej and Sami played by these actors and finally write a story FOR them and not AGAINST them or waste them with some other dull and irelevant love-interests i could come back to watch..it is up to the writers..but yep this promo is well-done..now let’s see if they can do something good with it.

Chemistry is subjective-it’s a matter of taste, making your eyes see what they want to see. Personally, I thought Lumi were cute together, but their romantic/love scenes felt rather akward & forced. They had more of a bff/sibling vibe. As for EJole, they have chemistry, but it’s the sleazy kind: they connect on a physical, sexual level-nothing more. It’s as JS said of their ONS: “he NAILED her”. Nicole knows that deep down, Ej will never love her with his heart, because it’ll always belong to someone else (Sami, Taylor). I do agree with you about the ratings, though. EJami… Read more »

alison (sammy) and galen (rafe) are two of the most attractive people on the entire show of days and they look and seem to be the best couple for each other on the show. I would never want to see sammy with anybody else except perhaps ej. And for rafe I would not want to see him with anyone else except with sammy. I hate how sammys older sister is having so much screen time with rafe, she looks like a dog compared to sammy.-just saying!

dacey you said a mouth full and I concur with you. Everyone must remember that carrie is happily married and her husband is way too old looking to be involved with that extremely young looking girl named abigale. And what is really crazy is how the writers are trying to perhaps pitch the idea of them to being together is just stupid. Carries husband looks psycho, very old looking, wrinkled, stupid hairstyle that looks like he is trying to look youthful and cool but it just comes across as old and desperately trying to be younger than what he obviously… Read more »

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Abe Goes to the Light While John Faces Off with MarDevil

Monday’s highly-anticipated episode of Days of our Lives did not disappoint. In fact, we think that this episode should be a strong contender for DAYS to consider for one of their Outstanding Drama Series submissions for next year’s Daytime Emmys.  Why? It has it all – emotional heart with Abe’s journey to and from the light, touching flashbacks, a great performance by James Reynolds, and some special effects and editing during the John (Drake Hogesytn) vs. MarDevil scenes, which also gave us a delicious performance by Deidre Hall.

At the start of the episode, Abe has flatlined after being shot as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) tries to revive him, but they are losing him.  As this is going on, Paulina (Jackée Harry), Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) and Eli (Lamon Archey) are gathered at the hospital awaiting news on Abe’s condition.  Later, Eli decides to go find out what is happening with Abe, and gets the shock of his life when he walks in on Abe flatlining, while Kayla tells him that Abe is gone.  Eli implores her to try to bring him back. He tells the others they are working on trying to save Abe, as Julie and Paulina bond, and later, Lani must call Theo and Brandon to let them know about Abe’s condition.

Photo: JPI

Julie reminisces about Abe, and how they have known each other for 40 years, our wink-wink that this is James Reynolds’ 40th anniversary episode.   Then, we see Abe has gone to the light wearing a white sweater and who should he see but his beloved late wife, Lexie.  No, it’s not Renee Jones, but an actress who delivers Lexie’s lines, since it had been previously reported that Jones was unavailable for the episode.  In scenes with the replacement Lexie, Reynolds showed us why he is an MVP of DAYS.  He acted up a storm and brought the emotion regardless of who was standing there.

 

However, longtime viewers got a wonderful surprise when flashback clips of scenes between Renee Jones and Reynolds were shown and they were some major moments in the history of Abe and Lexie’s relationship including: the moment when Abe learns Lexie’s pregnant, the moment when he is disgusted by Lexie’s betrayal when he learned of her involvement in the Zack baby switch storyline, and what she did to Bo and Hope, all because she was desperate for a child. Later, it’s the five-hankie moment of when Lexie, who was dying from a brain tumor, passes away in Abe’s arms.

After all the flashbacks, Lexie tells Abe he needs to go back and not to come with her to heaven. He has children, and people who love him and need him. Eventually, he says his goodbyes to Lexie and returns to the present, just as Kayla is about to call his time of death in the hospital room. All of a sudden, Abe’s heart begins to beat.

Photo: JPI

Kayla brings Julie, Eli, Lani, and Paulina the news that Abe will need surgery, but he will make it.  Then, Paulina and Lani make their way to see him. In another emotional moment, they tell him how much they love him (Paulina looks worried about her lie being exposed that Lani is not really Abe’s bio-daughter).  As the episode comes to its conclusion, we see the back of Lexie making sure Abe is safe and sound among the living, while signifying she is watching over him.

And if that was not enough, this episode also picked up where John had confronted MarDevil in the church, letting Satan knows he is on to him and that he is not going to win … he is going to get Marlena back.  Satan drives home the point that Marlena belongs to him now.  John is mortified as the cross on the church wall turns upside down. Later to show off his prowess and control, MarDevil turns the holy water blood red. As the scene progresses, MarDevil is jumping all over the church and showing up in different spots.

Photo: JPI

John then gets the lowdown on how Satan struck a deal with Marlena to let Doug (Bill Hayes) live if she let him in.  That is followed, by some of the back-story of Marlena’s first possession over 25 years ago, and why it happened when she was alone and very distraught.  MarDevil even goes on to say that he tried once before to regain control of Marlena during the Salem Serial Killer storyline, but it did not work out that time, because all the victims turned out to be alive.  MarDevil brings up Stefano and how he had made Marlena believe John was dead which left her vulnerable.  He goes on to relate that Doug was the gateway for Marlena’s re-possession.

Photo: JPI

MarDevil tells John what she did with Doug by committing him and how she wanted to kill Julie. John knows that Marlena can hear him and tries to bring her back, but as the devil struggles with that, ultimately, he wins and begins to show his strength to John tossing him around the church, where he is eventually is knocked unconscious and then dragged to, we don’t know where, by the MarDevil!

Throughout the scenes, Deidre Hall looked like she was having so much fun playing the devilish one in this campy storyline revisited.

So, what did you think of James Reynolds performance and his 40th anniversary episode? What was your favorite moment? Are you glad John knows for certain now that Marlena is once again possessed? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
