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 loves Sami I think there is more to this than meet the eye he do anything to protect her I think we see him save her in the end.

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.

How I LOVE EJami. Never a dull moment!

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 most cases don’t happen because of some interruption, during sweeps and the next sweeps week is in Feb.

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!

Mary

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
Mary SF

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 i found very entertaining at Dougs Place and later at Blonde’s!!! Happy New Year to you too!!!

What i meant when i said like ‘Doug and Julie’ i mean the way romantic super couples used to be and not just bedmates!

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 – holding it against EEJ for his one hour part in the Father Eric debacle… then so be it… LOL he was honest in that regard… EJ had no idea that his sister and Father Eric dalliance would be screened for all the parishioners… Yikes! it still reverberates.. how scintillating those sceneries are HOT! isn’t it nice to see Father Eric in tight jeans… so reminds me of the charmed, ultra suave, masculined out William Holden’esque… Marquee HIS ACT… Greg Vaughan is back ON thee show. I hope the show does steer that way… Sammi needs another nemesis to co-hort.. her feminine wiles with… it can’t always be Nicole.. and her niece… is able to put out… her scenes with Theresa… prove she’s got the toughness it’s all so nice… amazing.. to see the cohesive close nit gelling of quality acting within the whole cast… just contributing Great Stuff! I’m LOL.. whew! waiting with baited breath the Jordan’aire esquee feature! who is she really? I buy the kindlling of love is in the air.. with Rafe what is on the horizon of Blake Berris Nick! I just hope that DOOL goes the route and features Nick with Theresa or Jordan who is nuAiden going to be paired with? Theresa, Jordan, Abbi, Nicole… heck.. make it Kayla.. if Abe’s not available… we could go on and on about all the potential in Salem…. it’s replete with goodness… abound! staggers me! bringing back Justin and Adrienne.. to help solidify Sonny with nuWill…. is a treat unto themselves. Thank God.. it’s not happy… till Victor and Maggie are one… and bravado a united front… it’s beam with love these two reel Kristian Alfanso, is so lovely.. she brings a radiant Hope to the screen… and it was too sad… this time around… to see Bo’ Christmas ornament… I hope… the chemistry is there… for the new cast member… Liam… with Jenn… ? if not… he can romance Kayla? John Black is coming back home… so that means more show with Marlena! my big wish list… for DOOL… well besides…. Michael Muhney and Trevor St. John… as either Peter Blake and Jack Devereaux… and Ted King… as Bo…. BUT: Charlotte Ross as EVE! and PLEASE… DOOL… bring back on a regular basis… Shane and Kimberly! so… you see? so many possibilities… with the entire cast… and potential.. through the roof! Days of OUR Lives… DESERVES:… 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 recast and Trevor St. John as Peter Blake…Peter could be behind all the drug dealings in Salem like he was years ago! The actor playing Liam shouldve been cast as Frankie Brady instead…back in Salem where he rekindles his old romance with ex girlfriend Jennifer!!!

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 don’t for one minute EJ will attempt blackmail. When all is said & done Samantha will marry EJ because she loves him! No bribing, threats or blackmail needed

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 on it, we want him to too…. So let’s move on Days. We want an Ejami wedding and family.

Leah

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 man of the world and B) She is still a childish, naive little girl. I find it rather creepy.

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 am not watching this show either way.

Lena

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 Camila Banus Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

The angst, drama, tears, and revenge continued this week on NBC’s Days of our Lives with the stirring portrayal of grief-stricken young woman; who is hell-bent on making everyone around her suffer for the loss of her husband in a fatal gunshot that left him brain-dead.  Of course, we are talking about Camila Banus (Gabi), who turned in bravura performances this week, and there are four moments that really stood out to us that showed the range and depth of Banus’ work.

In the hospital chapel, Gabi talks to God and prayed to him that he will make Stefan (Brandon Barash) whole again.  There has been one through-line for Gabi throughout her life – she seems to have everything and everyone she loves taken away from her, even if some of the decisions she makes along the way have a cause/effect that leaves her feeling completely alone, and ready to lash out at the world for what has transpired.  In the chapel, she asks God through her tears, “Why do you hate me so much?” Gabi tells God she went to Sunday school as a little girl and still she has lost God and her husband.  Gabi cannot even get herself to look at Stefan’s things when Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Will (Chandler Massey) try to share them with her as she slaps the envelope out of their hands.

In another heartbreaking scene, Gabi is in the bed she shared with Stefan. She flashes to kissing the love of her life.  Next, Gabi breaks down in tears, and throws things around in the bedroom before slumping to the floor.  She sobs and says, “Why did you give me your heart, Stefan, if you weren’t going to be around to love me with it?”

Later, Gabi talks to Stefan in her sleep as she hugs his pillow. When she wakes up she cries as Kate (Lauren Koslow) arrives to check on her.  Gabi lets Kate have it, and at first blames Kate for the whole mess with Stefan.  Gabi lashes out that if it wasn’t for Stefan getting in between Kate’s feud with Vivian (Robin Strasser), he’d still be alive.  Kate knows Gabi is in despair and hugs her.  Then, Gabi channels her angst towards Lani (Sal Stowers) promising to make her suffer.

And on Friday’s episode, Gabi is ramping us some sort of revenge plan promising Stefan his legacy will live on. Earlier, Gabi was present with Lani and Eli (Lamon Archey) when Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) informed them that Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) will need a special pacemaker, even after receiving Stefan’s heart. Somehow, Gabi found a file on Visionary Bionics, the company that makes this unique medical device, and recalls Kayla saying she’ll do the procedure on Julie tomorrow. Gabi makes a mysterious call.  What is she about to do?

Through all of the emotional drama, Banus sustained a level of performance that is no easy feat. That is why Michael Fairman TV names Camila’s work The Power Performance of the Week.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”

DAYS Camila Banus Talks Stabi’s Heartbreaking Love Story; Matthew Ashford Melissa Reeves Chat On JnJ Reunion On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
