Courtesy/NBC

Oh, there is no fury like a revved up Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott) on Days of our Lives!  And, as the New Year begins, it looks like the two are up to their old tricks!  EJ has the evidence to prove that Sami was involved in Nick Fallon’s (Blake Berris) “murder”, what will he do with the proof?  Will he help her cover her tracks?

In this new NBC promo for next week, in true EJ style he tells Sami, “Are you going to marry me, or not?”  And with that, it signifies Sami has a decision to make!

Will she stroll down the aisle one more time in one of her always-disastrous-wedding-attempts and seal the deal with the man she loves?  Or, will she walk out on him?  Or, will EJ change his mind and help Sami anyway, even if she does not agree to say, “I do”?

Watch next week’s promo for Days of our Lives after the jump! Then, let us know what you think Sami should do?  Should she marry EJ? Do you think EJ has once again way over-stepped his boundaries with this attempt at securing Sami as his wife? Weigh-in!

Please marry him, Sami! I’ve been waiting for a REAL EJami marriage/relationship for a long time!

Love EJami ‘bird watching’ on Friday! They are so great together.

EJ and Sami are old hat. They have danced this routine again and again. I’d much rather see Theresa set her cap for EJ and let him experience some of what he dishes out.

Can’t wait to see this! And while I don’t think any ‘blackmail’ is involved – those were two separate scenes in the promo – I’m confident Sami and EJ are going to end up married. Hope it’s sooner than later; I’m being tortured too much!

It would be really silly of EJ to blackmail her into marrying him at this stage of the game—they grown past that kind of immaturity in their relationship— I hope at least. More than likely EJ is just using this latest situation to prove how much she needs him– and how much they are alike and she should give him a break about covering for his sister, when he is now covering for her too. It all in the family kind of thing. If they do get married it won’t happened until Feb.— most of Salem weddings happened or in… Read more »

I hope he doesn’t have to resort to blackmailing her to marry him. In what world does a man like EJ have to beg someone to give him a chance? I know Sami loves him but this is getting ridiculous!

With Sami who knows which way she will lean. She loves EJ but she has never been one to give in to threats and I think that is what EJ will do, try to threaten her into saying yes.

It would be great if they never get married. Why ruin a good thing?

If she marries him he does not have to testify against her WHEN she gets caught. So it may not be black mail but rather protect your butt.

Isnt Abigail supposed to become attracted to E.J.? i thought it was mentioned somewhere that she falls for someone that’ll take viewers off guard? I originally thought it would be Danial!!!

Mary SF
Guest

I saw that too– and the few scenes they had together seemed to hint at it. It makes a bit of sense because Abigail does have a history with liking older men (Austin) and they recently brought that up on the show. And as for EJ, if Sami keeps him from her bed much longer I think he will be ripe for the picking if Abigail starts showering him with youthful adoration—- yes, I think Abigail falling for EJ is very possible-

Happy soap watching in the New Year, to you and yours.

If it happens…and i think it will…i cant wait because it would make one hot storyline…cant wait to see the reactions of both Jen and especially Sami…Days keeps getting better and better…loved seeing Doug and Julie who will always be my favorite super couple…hope Abigail and E.J. become the next Doug and Julie…i miss the entertainment at Dougs Place…with J.J playing the guitar and singing the other day…it would be a wonderful nod to the past if J.J. eventually opens up J.J.s Club with the help of Doug and Julie and once again we are treated to the musical acts… Read more »

I still can’t get over.. DAYS Christmas Epi! It just knocked my socks off.. and made me emotional all over Whew! Cheers to : continued success… onward and upward: NBC/Sony/DOOL Happy New Year ALL. I think, this is thee opportunity, for Abbi to fly with the big dogs… I too , think their is potential… between EJ and Ms. Abbs – the scenes they’ve shared were natural, cute, suggesting, and scintillating and she has the acting chops to pull off something like this.. and this is reel power play… on both their parts…. IF: EJ gets tired of Sammi –… Read more »

I want Jordan to be Stephanos granddaughter…maybe some way off camera Tony and Anna got together and Jordan is their secret child…i also want Aiden be Jordans ex boyfriend or ex husband…Jordan has been running from Aiden using different disguises and names because Aiden was very controlling and abusive but now he finally found her…kinda like the movie ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’…double angst for Rafe…his new girl is the granddaughter of Rafe’s enemy Stephano and he also has to deal with Jordans ex Aiden but i doubt this scenerio will happen! I think Ted King would be the perfect Bo… Read more »

There’s a big difference between an ultimatum and blackmail. Even with the evidence in EJ’s hand, it seems a bit dramatic to speculate that he’ll try to blackmail her… I don’t see that happening.

I think the promo is a bit of a deception,but Sami will marry EJ regardless of his “threats” and ultimatum because she loves him. Just like EJ loves Sami. Love makes you do the wacky,right?And these two have a powerful,explosive, passionate and all-consuming love. They ache for each other and like EJ said: “”We’re perfect for each other.” He was right when he mentioned that they were the most miserable people when they are apart. So unite EJami!

EJ is FRUSTRATED…. Heck we all are! How much longer do the Days powers to be plan on dragging out this engagement? It has been way too long in most fans opinion. Here is the one man who loves and accepts Sami warts and all. Has given up absolutely everything for her and is again willing to help her with this Nick murder and she’s still being fickle? I could understand her anger etc over the Kristen “secret” but after her part in Nicks murder it is all now rather a moo point. EJ wants to put a wedding ring… Read more »

PS: I really hated the writing and scenes for Ejami and Ejamily over Christmas. For years we have waited for them to be together and in love and this was supposed to be there first Christmas together and what did we get? Still a BIG ZERO! How disappointing. Not together, separated, strained relationship and to top it all off Sydney calling Nicole mummy Nicole… YUK! Who is writing this garbage? I can only shudder to think what Days have install for us with Abigail sniffing around EJ. EJ and Abigail are wrong for all sorts of reasons A) He’s a… Read more »

These two, and the way they write them are the no 1 reason why I will never turn this show back on. I don’t know about the rest of you but, I cannot stand to see Sami back to the idiot she became when they decided she should be with EJ. I don’t care if she marries him, and this is par for the course the way he has blackmailed her before. To me EJ is slime, and Sami is going to get exactly what she deserves. Won’t make any difference to me if they are together or apart. I… Read more »

Ultimatum does not mean blackmail. I don’t think EJ will blackmail Sami into marriage. He just wants to know where they stand, and so do I. They obviously love each other, so when will Sami let EJ put his ring on it?

I am loving Days right now. I miss Nick and hope his creepy self slithers back to Salem, but this storyline is awesome.

I know this doesn’t have to do with ejami, but high Brady is “highly” entertaining. Today’s epi was awesome all around. DOOL is firing on all cylinders. Keep it up!

I hate EJami. They are too forced, overexposed, and always do horrible things to each other. I liked Sami with Rafe and Lucas better, but since there are new women for them, I would rather she be single. I am liking the hot EJabby scenes though! Let them be a couple!

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?
