It’s a very big day for long time fans of EJami on NBC’s Days of our Lives!  When the stage is set for fireworks to explode, and their relationship possibly to implode on today’s episode!

The set-up has the incriminating photos of EJ (James Scott) and Abigail (Kate Mansi) in the throes of passion in an envelope that Sami (Alison Sweeney) got her hands on when it was slipped under the door at the DiMera mansion!

As Alison Sweeney has previewed in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, this is one of her all-time favorite episodes that she has been a part of in her over 20 years with the soap.

Sweeney also revealed: “The whole first half of the show is just the two of us in these really long scenes together dealing with Sami finding out what EJ had done.  It’s incredible.”

Alison later added, “I feel there was not-one stone left unturned in the conflict between the two as the two of then have it out over his unfaithfulness.”

So just how do you think this episode will in the end play itself out?  Will Sami forgive EJ? Will it be splittsville?  Look for Deidre Hall (Marlena), Kate Mansi (Abigail) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) to also appear later in the show.  We will have more coverage on this special episode this evening.

Well…he raped her, and she shot him in the head….I dont see how a little boink with some chick with daddy issues is worse than either of those things. I am sure they can get past it.

Boink? How crass. Abbi is pregnant, how bourgeois , …as I said, typically male.

FAS

I hope it does happen that way, …Abni pregnant and loses the baby…..Sami leaves EJ…..Abbi completely disappears…is this entire episode imaginary?

Johnny

Crass?? EJ’s 85 year old father called it “banging”! It was not making love because they are not in love. It was what it was…boinking, banging, bumping uglies…whatever word or term applies.

You’re right. I prefer the term “hump” myself,
Not so bourgeois.

I was just not familiar with that word used in that sense….I had to ask my mother….wrong generation, maybe?

I am looking forward to the episode, most specifically, the portrayal from James Scott as EJ Dimera. James brings his all to each and every scene, has chemistry with everyone on the show. I’ve always thought that Sami was too immature for EJ. For someone who is head of a successful company, has 4 children, etc., she acts like a child most of the time. For example, when she pouted about Will and Sonny having a nicer wedding than her and EJ. I just have never cared for the character. I think Kelly Sullivan (ex Connie/Kate from GH) would be an incredible recast.

Gotta hand it to Ali Sweeney, just went home for lunch and watched today’s episode. AMAZING! Way to go to everyone who was featured on today’s show!

Sami and E.J. deserve each other…didnt he rape her…didnt she shoot him…and yet they still wuv each other…so little Abigail is what it takes to break them up for good? Well, if they arent leaving town together…maybe on the run after Nick is found murdered, then i guess they will split up!!!…lol

I’d love for someone to “off” Nick; that would be a great mystery-so many suspects!

You are right, jimh. You always are . You always make sense. EJ’s and Sami’s horrific crimes are indisputable. Neither of them is a favorite to me personally. However, they have become accepted fixtures in our homes….it took a while. The majority of viewers like them, as I like you, jimh…lol…really!!! You are also right in what you are implying…that it takes Abigil to break them up? I get it….nothing could shake them loose….if a relationship is strong, then that love should be able to surmount everything. But, in my limited experience in the ways of love and relationships; deceit, betrayal, and all things pertaining to infidelity does a number on someone, no? I suppose we must all experience these hurts before we finally find the one…..but a cheater will always be a cheater . Thus, considering their reciprocated betrayals, EJ and Sami should not be too surprised if either of them deceives the other.

Late to DAYS as I watched other now-cancelled soaps in the day, but since I have come to Salem, I have not been disappointed in how DAYS builds suspense and delivers these special episodes. Knowing the histories, I do understand infidelity may seem unlikely to break the camel’s back for EJ and Sami, but at least this is a very human real conflict… not about surprise resurrections, mistaken identities, or endless back-and-forth flirtations. I am looking forward to this.

As I stated last week, I don’t think this is Stefano’s doing. I may be wrong but Percy slipped the pictures under the door.

I cannot believe a show would hype a dream sequence this much. It feels as if the show has lost all creative direction. I love soaps and it’s sad to see Days reduced to this.

I was disappointed it was a dream sequence, too. Wonder when the true reveal will take place, the wedding in May, probably. May sweeps.

Perhaps they are preparing us…pave the way, per se, to rough waters? But isn’t mayhem the writers’s scope? ….or the imagery was devised to keep us in suspense and keep watching. Just my opinion …..

What a rip off– hate when they pull that stunt– was royally ticked off– the actors will have footage for next year Emmy reel and that’s the only good thing to come of it. But for me two thumbs down, boo hiss– loved it until the twist then hated it.

Please….writers…..do NOT channel James E Reilly again and use his stupid extended dream sequences ever again! He almost ruined this show twice in the past and the damage he did to some characters and stories is still being repaired!!

It was a fake out. At about the 35 minute mark, we all find out that EJ is imagining this. I get that Alison Sweeney is proud of her work, and James Scott’s, but at the end of the day, Sami is still clueless, EJ is still frightened, and the secret has yet to be revealed. I didn’t realize it was all in EJ’s imagination until he went over to Abby’s, and their dialogue didn’t ring true at all. Up till then, I thought JS and AS were good, though I thought AS needed some tears streaming down her face, or something to make it look like Sami was distraught because hearing her yell at him without tears didn’t work for me. Another thing I didn’t like was how speedy everything was, from Sami figuring it out, to EJ admitting he’d had an affair, to even Marlena criticizing EJ when she’d only seen the photo for about 2 seconds. I wish that the hype for this episode would have led to some forward motion for this story and for DOOL overall. They’re stuck in slo mo, or focusing on couples no one cares about like Jennifer and Daniel, for much too long. And they don’t know how to use Drake Hogestyn now that he’s back. TPTB are making all the wrong choices and IMO, making today’s heavily hyped episode all in EJ’s mind was yet another one.

You hit the nail on the head about Daniel and Jennifer-snooze fest.

I agree about the crying/yelling. I’ve never been a fan of Ali’s; but, I do think this episode was one of her best. James Scott always delivers. I think he could carry anyone through a scene.

Paul

I couldn’t agree more about the TPTB making all the wrong choices. To hype a dream sequence the way they did was ridiculous. The show was a total waste of time — though I immensely enjoyed seeing Abs thrown over the staircase. If only that could happen every day.

I cannot WAIT for this! The show, as much as I love it, sometimes moves a bit slowly. But when the “stuff” hits the fan, it’s great. And this promises to be mindblowing.
Abigail better not have her hair in a bun next time she sees Sami. Sami is likely to pull it right off her head. And I’m so looking forward to listening to Jenn blather about it all. I don’t like Abigail, but I sorta feel sorry her since she has that smug, self-congratulatory harridan as a mother. And without a doubt, Jenn will make it all about her.

FAS

Ha Ha!

FAS

Oh, man…I love the way you think …you wrote my thoughts exactly. But, I feel no pity for her or her bun. As for Jen? What about her ?? Blah, blah, blah.

Johnny
Johnny

Used up cow??? Wow…I sense some jealousy towards the fresh faced Ms. Mansi. While I hate the direction the show often takes Abigail, sympathy for Sami is a bit much. She was fairly “used up” by the time she was 18…..sleeping with Lucas, rapingAustin, being raped by Alan, etc.

WilSon

The show is just a dream! I was so irritated that I wasted my time.

Mary SF
Mary SF

Exactly, not only did it waste our time it ruin the eventually true reveal because honestly those scenes before Marlena came in were brilliant and so beautifully acted and heart wrenching– nothing they will do when it is the real reveal will move me– so they ruined these scenes by making them fake, and ruined future scenes because nothing would top the fake ones— why or why do this writers do this stunt writing when they know how it ticks viewers off. I’m mad enough that I am considering boycotting DAYS because I don’t want to reward stunt writing that ruins my enjoyment of the show.

I loved the fake out!

What was so great about it was the fact that we know that EJ feels that Abby is pregnant.

Mary SF
Mary SF

You do realize none of those scenes really happened and it was only what EJ imagine what would happen if Sami saw the picture? Sami is still in the dark about the affair, but I am sure the truth will come out eventually, but just not today.

FAS
FAS

Yes, I do now. But, Mary SF I was typing and posting while watching…lol…then I realized and asked if it was imaginary…they got me hook, line and sinker…Ha Ha

FAS
FAS

My mother was watching with me. She realized it before I did…we were going at it back and forth…lol…Moms are always right. And, you are right, Mary, the truth is bound to come out. I believe that Abbi is over her wanton urges for EJ, or so she says(unless she is kidding herself), so a pairing there might not be feasible when Sweeney leaves. A Sami recast, perhaps?

boes
boes

Well THAT was a disappointment, although I’m also glad that this isn’t the way it will play out. But still, essentially a waste of time and talent.

I will say, though, that I can never get enough of anyone, anytime, anywhere, pushing Abigail off any staircase. The higher, the better. After all, if she lands on her head there will be no permanent damage. Of course, the best would be if Jenn broke her fall and Abigail landed squarely in her big mouth.
Now THAT is a dream!

FAS
FAS

I am just wondering….Jen found the drugs in Daniel’s apartment and is in painful disbelief?!?!?! Lol …..what are the chance she will also find the planted, hidden bug (camera)? I hope she realizes that the same person who has framed Daniel also planted the pills. But, knowing Jen, she will assume the worst about Daniel, as is her wont.

Paul
Paul

Jen has become such an annoying holier than thou harpie. I’m rooting for Liam.

FAS
FAS

Well, we now know that it is about Liam’s first love interest, wife etc…an obsession which manifests itself with women who bear a resemblance to his first love. However, I object…Jen is too old, for one…secondly Jen cannot hold a candle to Dorothy.(is that her name?)… This is a very young woman in comparison to Jen…at least 20 years. But, considering Lism’s delusional personality and mental issues, any blonde will do, I guess. The brain is a complex network… So, now, The perils of Jennifer continue…so scary!! What a dumb storyline….Watch out, a Jen …the -Boogie -Man-a-comin’
I would like to say that Sami should stay out of her son’s private life. She was never “into” Gabi…let’s face it, she is a busy-body. …reminds me of my older sister’s mother-in-law…lol.

FAS
FAS

I do believe someone will kill Nick…but, who? He has amassed quite a few enemies, so it could be anyone.
And, the hunt is on !!!!…. New storyline in the process.

Amy from Australia
Amy from Australia

EJAMI FOREVER! I know it will never happen but I don’t want Sami to find out! Why can’t Sami and EJ just be together? Why is someone always tearing them apart? Why can’t Abigail move to Switzerland and leave Ejami in peace? We only have a year left with Allison, can the writers just please let them be together for that entire time? We Ejami die hards have waited long enough! Australia loves Ejami!

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Lucas Says Goodbye To Salem, While Julie Recalls Coming Back To Town

In a very touching episode of Days of our Lives, Tuesday brought with it an emotional goodbye from exiting fan favorite Bryan Dattilo (Lucas), and the soap paying homage to Susan Seaforth Hayes’ 50th anniversary to the day as Julie.

It begins in Horton Town Square where Julie next to the plaque dedicated to her grandparents, Tom and Alice Horton, has a flash back to phone call with Tom five decades ago.

Meanwhile, now broken up with Chloe, and ready to leave Salem to be with his daughter, Allie, Lucas tells Will he is leaving and that he is happy Will and Sonny found their way back to each other.  The two hug it out, and tell each other how proud they are of one another.  Next, Lucas goes to visit his mother, Kate.  In a touching exchange played by Dattilo and Lauren Koslow, viewers were treated to Kate’s pain of the mistakes she made as a mother, and Lucas being forgiving of her.

At Doug’s Place, Julie and Abigail try to figure out how to bring down Stefan and Gabi.  Julie promises to not tell anyone that Abigail is not mentally ill saying. “Your secret is safe with me.”  Next, Chloe happens upon the scene and Julie quickly sees Chloe break down in tears.  She then reveals to Julie, that she and Lucas broke up.  Julie gives Chloe a tissue and some words of advice – the gospel according to Julie – that they were not meant to be, and that Chloe will find true love. After all, after Julie’s other failed relationships, once she was with Doug she found her soulmate, so she knows it can happen.

Julie flashes back to speaking with Alice when she worries that Tom would not want her to return to Salem.  For Julie had been in San Francisco, and where she brings up putting her son up for adoption, but how she later raised him and how happy that Eli is her grandson.  She even recalls when JJ got her and other ladies in Salem accidentally high on pot-filled donuts!

When Lucas turns up at the Horton’s everyone is saddened and shocked that he has decided to depart Salem   Julie says Salem will always be his home.  JJ hands Lucas his ornament now, breaking the Christmas tradition early.  Lucas hangs his ornament in another emotional moment.

Next, we see Lucas waiting for a taxi, with his suitcases at Horton Town Square,  He gazes at the Tom and Alice dedication plaque and says, “I’ll be back. someday.” Hankies!

Alone now with Julie, Doug brings out a cake celebrating how it is 50 years since Julie returned to Salem permanently.  Cue the montage … as Doug’s voice is heard singing “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”, one of the duo’s signature songs, as clips of their love affair played throughout.  We fade to black.

DAYS honored Susan Hayes and gave Brytan Dattilo some heart-tugging moments as he left the canvas as the beloved Lucas.  So what did you think of the episode?  Sad to see Bryan exit?  Happy to see the show wrote in a way to honor Susan’s 50th as Julie?
