It’s a big week for Days of our Lives and look for the action to really bring the dramatic tension as everyone in Salem (well, those who wanted to show up) gather for EJ (James Scott) and Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) engagement party!  And as with anything relating to marriage or engagement with Sami Brady, something usually goes awry and it looks like this time will be no different!

Now, Marge Benardi (Elizabeth Roberts) is gunning for EJami during their engagement party and a shot is fired, but will it hit the intended targets? Looks like Marge has become unhinged, and is not willing to let the outcome of Sami’s trial go!

Watch this week’s promo for Days of our Lives from NBC  after the jump!  Then, let us know what you think will go down at EJ and Sami’s party gone south?

I know I may receive some backlash on this; but, as much as I love EJ Dimera and the actor who plays him, I just don’t see the chemistry between EJ and Sami. I always love the scenes between EJ and Nicole as sparring exes, or EJ and Kristen as Dimera siblings. I just think that Sami is far too immature for EJ. Don’t even get me started on Marge Bernardi or her son Timmy. Ugh. The real reason I watch the show is for Eileen Davidson. I love Kristen and Brady. Loved their pre-Cana scenes. Eileen is the reason I tuned back into Days. I’ll be sad when she leaves.

You are not alone. I don’t see the chemistry either.

To be honest I don’t really “get” Sami and EJ either. He raped her and that had fans inan uproar. I guess because girls and gay guys think he is sexy and swoon worthy rape ceases to matter. Poor Sami has been raped so much. She may as well have ben a Passions character. First was Alan then EJ then that Faux Rafe. I was never a fan of Sami because she was written as such a one note psychopath under Jim Reilly. I liked he with Brandon and with Lucas. Her and EJ are okay…but I long for the days of supercouples where you couldn’t wait for them to be together because they were the GOOD GUYS. Shane and Kim…Bo and Hope…Marlena and interchangeable John or Roman. Those were the days.

Oh my, thank you for your post. I totally agree. I’m afraid to say anything because there’s such a fan base there, but I don’t like them together either and I don’t “get” the attraction for each other and the attraction from the fans either. Actually, they’re both insidious people pretending to be righteous. Rafe seemed to mature Sami, but EJ and Sami just enable each other’s despicable behavior. Margie gets on my last nerve, too, because she’s so one dimensional and contrived as a character, but I’m all for anyone taking Sami and EJ out. If not, I hope Stefano continues to make them stay in his house and make their lives heck. Other than those two and a few others, I really enjoy the show’s canvas and stories right now. My favorite characters are Marlena, Maggie, Victor, Hope, Kristen, Nicole, Eric and some others. I’m also loving how the bad seed JJ is torturing uptight “Jenny and Danny”, with some help from mischievous Theresa and Ann; and I howl at crotchety Victor’s one-liners. Anyway, I’m happy that DAYS is enjoying this renaissance.

There is LOTS of chem between EJ and Sami. I love them together. About time!

To each their own, I just don’t see the chemistry. I really do love EJ Dimera. The actor really does deserve an Emmy. His scenes with Stefano, making “amends” in order to free Sami were top notch. I adore Eileen Davidson as Kristen. Also, I have really enjoyed Nicole, lately. Both Kristen and Nicole seem to have chemistry with most of the actors on the show. I guess I just find Sami to be very immature. Maybe it’s the character, maybe it’s the actress. Not sure. I am just not a fan. I also love Marlena and Victor working together. I also think that the actor who plays JJ is very talented.

DAYS is better than I thought it would be. (I started watching after losing ATWT and OLTL.) As much as I like the storyline, characters, and actors.. I cannot help but think this plot would have more punch had Marge Benardi had some sort of presence in Salem for some time. Not only would we be surprised more at the story’s development, we would have discovered mixed feelings about right and wrong, how we view Marge, how her husband’s actions and hers now harm her family, how they threaten EJ and Sami and likely someone who is caught in the crossfire.

Is there longrange planning on the soaps anymore to allow for these more layered twists and turns?

It wouldve been more effective had the Bernardi family been part of the show months befoe Joe was killed…maybe Timmy went to school with Hopes daughter Ceara, Marge was Annes sister(give both actors more story connection. Annes constantly involved in Jens story is getting old fast…Anne as Marges sister wouldve gave her more to do and refreshen her character as she vows to destroy Ejami) and Joe couldve been good friends with Abe…connecting temp characters with the vets couldve led to more story possibilties for many more months to come…once Marge is off canvas none of us will barely remember this family two years from now, and we wont even care.

Mary SF

Sometimes it is not necessary to have temporary characters be connected to the main characters. If they had done it your way, there would have been a lot of screen time invested in connecting them to vets, just to blow them away later it doesn’t make sense. Also people would have been complaining the air time were going to these newbies and in the end Joe would still be dead, and Marge would go off the deep end, it would have been a waste of time to give them a background to the main characters first. They did enough by connecting Joe to Rafe and Hope as a fellow cop and having Adrienne be aquaintances with Marge.

Last year they had that guy Sean who Gabi hired to be her stalker who ended up being the catlyst behind that whole explosion storyline, he wasn’t connected to anyone, but his impact on Salem was huge with Madison and Jack dying. Likewise this whole Bernardi family will leave their mark on Salem and they caused drama to the screen ( EJ surrendering to Stefano to save his lady love priceless) So I really don’t want to care about them or see them buddy buddy with anyone; they there to serve a purpose and when it is over it is over. And I will still care a year from now especially if Marge ends up killing Cameron or Chad

Johnny

I agree…but unfortunately all we knew of him was that he would slice off another dude’s penis for money. Hen he got a hero’s funerL with 7 people in attendance. Hen we have seen Marge cry and go into hysterics for months on end. I do feel sorry for oft-mentioned Timmy. That child is gonna need some major therapy.

Mary SF

They took the words right out of my mouth– of course it wouldn’t be an engagement party for anyone in Salem without something like this happening. I swear if I lived there– I would have all wedding related functions out of town. LOL. Can’t wait to find out what happens next.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I still feel the Bernardi family shouldve been more invovled with other characters…Seans involvement in the explosion storyline involved several characters…I wanted more for the Bernardis…i wouldve wanted Marge and Anne to be related to give the latter more story connection other than helping someone plot against Jen…

Mary SF
Mary SF

Well if they wanted a really dramatic story– they should have had Roman as the so call dirty cop and had Sami shooting her own father. Roman doesn’t have any real story anymore so I would have been fine if they had him under Stefano’s control. Of course Stefano would have made it look like Sami’s bullet killed him, and she would have been destroyed by grief– but in reality Stefano had Roman alive all this time, he comes in at this party, brainwashed to kill a Brady, but at the last minute aims the gun at Stefano, but Chad jumps in front of him and bites the big one. That would have been classic Days— but alas they didn’t go that way– but I do agree on one point if they are keeping Anne around they should give her more of a background.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I like that idea, Mary! That wouldve been better than my idea…using Roman instead…then maybe, feeling bad for killing Chad(had to rhyme it), he couldve sought psychiatric treatment from Marlena, and the two could rekindle old feelings for each other.(wouldve been better if Wayne Nortrope? still in the role…i still see Josh Taylor as Chris)(but i would be ok with Josh as Roman) Since it doesnt look like John and Marlena will be together anytime soon id prefer them to divorce and Marlena move on…and maybe with Roman.

This woman is very annoying… her hubby was a dirty cop. I don’t believe she was totally oblivious to his doings. She needs to take the hundred grand in her son’s acct and get out of town!

She is annoying isn’t she?

Not sure when they are supposed to finish airing but this could be the way they get rid of either Chad or Cameron (though why Cameron would be there I don’t know). I think this could be Chad’s exit. Unless they do a ho-hum and have Stefano’s under-5 girlfriend bite the bullet.

I was hoping Stefano’s girlfriend would turn out to be the sister of
the special prosecutor. I think Chad will be the shooting victom.

Can’t wait. But I hope EJami are okay!!!!

I think Marge should be going after her husband’s mistress! Or Stefano.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

They should have had Will get shot in the face, recieve reconstructive surgery and when the bandages are remove Guy Wilson is revealed in the role…depending if the shooting was filmed after Guy was hired…sometimes these types of stories help some viewers accept new actors who take over certain roles…just saying…

Johnny
Johnny

Shot in the face?? You’re kinda morbid pal. He is blonde and young and playing gay. People will love him no matter what. People have to love anyone playing gay or else they risk sounding homophobic.

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I didnt mean to come off that way…i have gay relatives, and have nothing against the lifestyle so i do take some offense that your reply implies just the opposite…gay character or otherwise it was just a suggestion…i have no problems with Guy taking over the role but ive read others who do…

4everDAYS

jimh is right. That would help some viewers accept the change.
The sexuality should not be a factor!

Paul

First of all, Johnny, speaking as a “gay guy” (btw, jimh, I didn’t realize that I had a “lifestyle”, but if you say so…), I don’t “swoon” over EJ or EJami, but I’m sure that your offensive generalizations aren’t meant to apply to me personally. You know, poor good-hearted, misunderstood souls can sometimes SOUND homophobic because they are homophobic.

Johnny
Johnny

Marge is intense and has a few issues that need to be resolved. Does this remind anyone of that stella nutcase who held Marlena hostage in 1992? LOL. They need to stop making Marge a weeping victim and make her a full blown whack job. That’s more fun. We don’t care about her or her penis razing hubby anyway.

Johnny
Johnny

Lol. Pistol packin Marge. If I had my way she would take out Rafe, Gabi, Sonny, and Will. Dead weight. Question…has it ever been explained why Anne hates Jennifer so much? I find it strangely entertaining. I have worked with many needlessly hostile nasty people like Anne. I am a nice person like Jenn. I am just wondering if there is a deeper reason or Anne is just a bitter…older…non-blonde…non-Horton etc. She looks like Barb Streisand.

Mo
Mo

Anne thinks Jen is like this princess because she’s a Horton, Tom’s granddaugther. She sees Jen as this entitled person and probably thinks she has had everything handed to her. Granted, Jen does take long lunches and is often away from work.

I’m glad Anne didn’t leave when Chloe did.

Patrick

Anne is definitely that character.. that flies under the radar… ala… she’s not Jennifer Horton… Deavearux

spitfire Anne is character driven… and… She’s a Hoot

she enlivens Salem… with her blue collar… this close to trailer park

I love her screen time… and she deserves her own story.

I JUST LOVE, that Theresa and Anne are mixed in… the show

Anne was hillarious… when she mentored Theresa

“Spread your wings’ grasshopper”

LOL

how funny – is this going to be

I love Jeanne Theresa Donovan and “Anne”

Patrick

btw….

someone mentioned…that she looks like Barbara Streisand

EJAMI are WONDERFUL together with a HUGE fan base. I wish the shooting did not have to happen at their engagement party. We fans have waited so long for them to finally be together. Bad timing on this one!

God do I LOVE all the screen time and amazing writing that Ejami has been getting this year. I’ve been a fan since the day James Scott walked on screen. I LOVE THESE TWO TOGETHER. They just make the entire canvas more enjoyable to watch.

But I have to say… who the heck are all those strangers there?!
