Love Ali Sweeney and James Scott and I want them to be together in a loving relationship raising their children. James Scott and Ali Sweeney are awesome actors and they are the reason I love Days. I also like Molly and Mark and wish they were together.

Same here! Especially Melanie and Nathan!

I feel the same way!!! Go EJAMI!!! & I also want Nathan & Melanie together they have lots of chemistry!!!

I would like the Ejami reunion to happen . Would like a reason to watch Days again like this past summer .

I voted for Nadia and Danloe! Nadia and Shawn deserve to win. They’re both gorgeous and Daniel and Chloe are hot together. And of course two of my favorite people.

I want Sami and Rafe together in a loving relationship without Ej always interfering.
I would love for Sydney to be Ej and Nicoles that way it should of always been.
Danloe is another great couple. Along with Bo and Hope.
These are the couple I would love to see in a loving family relationship
SAFE,BOPE and Danloe my 3 favorite couples.
Ej and Sami should never be a couple. People he lie and manipulate and do other things should be a couple. There is no love there just people who hurt each other all the time. That isn’t love that is obsession.Ej is totally obsessed with Sami and can’t’ let her be happy. He was brought to town to make Sami’s life a living hell and he has done exactly that. He really needs to move on and find someone else. So sick of this stupid stuff. Sami does need to pay for what she did.
I know there are others out there that think just because Sami has kids with Ej they need to be together. but she has kids with Lucas to and there not a couple. Just because you have kids with a person don’t mean you have to be a couple. Ej only thinks of him self. Ej is a true Dimera evil person. just like his dad. They need to keep him that way. That is the only way I can tolerate to even seen him on Days.
Sami wouldn’t even have johnny if it wasn’t for the rape. Which then then tells me she would of never ended up with Sydney when Lucas went to jail for shooting Ej. Sami would of never married Ej if it was for the stupid vendette against the Brady’s. Sami was wanting to protect her family from the idiot dimera’s exspecially after John got hit by the car and died.
Sami deserves to be happy with the man she loves and wants a family with and that is Rafe!!!!!!!

i love nadia bjorlin and shawn christian they have supercouple chemistry on dool danloe endgame danloe baby aww

LOve Ali Sweeney and EJami!

Good phrasing “Favourite Flawed heroine”

I noticed that too! Days does have a Heroine problem. lol

Fun poll. Thanks Michael. I like that it’s one vote per ip address too.

I have watched a lot of soaps for a lot of years and few couples can compare with Ejami or even come close and they haven’t even officially been a couple yet. Imagine how good it would be if they were. Now that’s what I want to see, the reason I came back to days, and what I have been waiting for – Ejami. There is unlimited sl potential and off the charts chemistry with Sami and EJ.

I totally agree! Ejami are the hottest and the best!

I would love Ej and Sami to get back together where they belong and be a family. Ejami are the hottest couple on daytime soaps today…I love them together.

Favorite Flawed Heroine: Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady)

Sami is not a heroine and never has been and never will be! I love her…but that’s like a joke to actual heroines…lol!!! Nah, Sami doesn’t belong there AT ALL!!! She’s done so much stuff and so much just nasty and horrible stuff, she’s my very ultimate favorite, and that’s like a disgrace and joke to Sami fans to even have her there. LOL!!! Girl, is no heroine at all! She’s definitely a “flawed” baddie way more than heroine! Heroine and Sami doesn’t even go in the same sentence. And that’s one thing that irritates Alison Sweeney and that she hates…she’s always said that she can’t stand and hates when people say to her or call Sami “good” just in general, because she said that’s not who Sami is and that’s not what she built Sami to be as the actress playing her, she said that she didn’t build Sami to be good in anyway like that at all, and that she can not stand to hear that about her character because she’s not good. And I love that she said that! Because Sami isn’t! She’s a twisted and flawed BADDIE!!

EJ is more of a flawed hero than Sami is! LOL!!! SO, HOPE BRADY all the way for favorite flawed heroine! (and Chloe too!)

FAVORITE DUO: DEFINITELY SUPERCOUPLE EJ & SAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EJAMI!!!!!!!!! (James Scott & Alison Sweeney!!!!!!!!)

I agree and don’t understand why they keep trying to make us believe that Sami is a heroine and Rafe a hero it’s like trying to stick a square peg into a round hole it just doesn’t fit. How do you call someone who won awards for best villian a heroine? LOL!

I agree Sami is a grey character character (and it is rare on soaps) she is an “anti-heroine” like Jack Deveraux was an “anti-hero” they are baddies with deep down a good heart but certainly not “heroes” like soaps want to also have ..and IMO because of their ulti-dimensioned persona they are much more interesting and fascinating.
However if Sami has to mature a bit (i agree with that) give her a career, some girlfriends and above all show us ON SCREEN that she loves her kids, more Sami scenes with her children otherwise we can’t buy her speech about how she loves them..we have to see it ! Not hard TPTB listen for once.

I agree. She should not be on the heroine poll whatsoever. Didn’t she wins emmys for being the villian?

I agree. I would not consider Sami to be a heroine. And EJ is the in the top 5 villains on DOOL.

And also love Eric Martsolf & Arianne Zucker (Brady & Nicole!!!) Love Bricole!!!! Wish they would bring back Eric Brady (the love of Nicole’s life!) Gawd…I have been waiting so loooonnggg and so many years to see Eric & Nicole again! And to see a Brady/Nicole/Eric story!!!

Love the duo of Sami and Ej because of the outstanding acting abilities and chemistry of Allison Sweeney and James Scott. They are the reason I contune to watch this show after 27 years of viewing!

I came back to Days because of Crystal Chappell. Her amazing acting skills brought Days in a whole new light for me. Her with Peter are just yummy and absolutely amazing to watch. I love Peter and Crystal together and I think Bo and Carly are the best could Days has ever had!

Carly Manning (Crystal Chappell) is my Favorite Flawed Heroine. She’s quick witted and feisty and looks like Madonna did as a brunette! For these reasons, Carly’s my Fave! 🙂

always knew cc looked familiar but was never able to make the connection. BINGO!! she looks like Madonna!!!!!!!!

Love Love Love Crystal Chappell. I started back watching DOOL because of her return. Seeing her and Peter Reckell together again has definitely ignited my CarBo love. After all those years apart, Bo & Carly still have such amazing chemistry. They are what I’ve always considered a “real” supercouple should be like.They compliment each other so perfectly. BTW I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought Crystal looked like Madonna especially during the whole Princess and the Pea fantasy. That’s when I first noticed it.


lol IMO Sami Brady is not, was never a heroine. But that’s just me.

I voted for Carly. Now that’s a flawed heroine who does not look down on other people. Human.

My 2nd favorite heroine on that list would be Hope. Her holier than thou attitude ever since she first debuted, however, is what’s keeping her from being 1st on the list, for me.

-I agree, I don’t see Sami as a heroine at all. She’s a ‘badass” just like EJ; they’re mirror images of each other. The storylines of the spring, summer and fall 2010 have been really difficult to digest, but I haven’t given up hope on these 2. That must mean something, right?! So: EJami all the way!

-Also voted for Carly in the “heroine” department. I rather like her.

I voted EJAMI because even when you think you can’t root for them, they still light up the screen together and make everyone else in the room disappear. Get your **** together writers!

Judi Evans is my flawed fave heroine!! I, have been a fan of Judi`s since she first appeared on (GL), and DOOL quickly became my fave soap.

Of course that means that J&A are my absolute fave couple. They have such great chemistry and history together, I just hope the writers of Days, will realize this soon, and give them the airtime and storyline they sooooooooo deserve. Bringing on some of their kids would be great, too.

SAFE is my favorite couple.

Ej & Sami have the best chemistry and I love to see them together . Me & my friends watcing days now cos Ejami

James scott is amazing actor period & Ali too. They are just magic this too so real believable and fire. Love James

The reason I watched was because of the chemistry between Alison Sweeney and James Scott, unfortunately I have tuned out since Sami shot EJ, hopefully somehow they will fix the writing and I will be back. Until then I will watch Y & R…..

Nadia bjorlin and Danloe all the way

How is Hope even an option for “flawed” heroine? All of Salem thinks she’s little miss perfect and can do no wrong, no flaws. Even when she tries to kill her husband three times, it’s okay and not her fault.

Hope is to busy going around being selfrightious telling everyone how they should act who they should be with all the while she is mugginh men and trying to killher husband! Thats no flawed heroine to me. At least Carly admits her flaws and trys to understand and see things from their perspective before she sits and judges them.!!


Galen Gering & Ali Sweeney are the best duo on Days….they are the most romantic couple Days has had in years…beautiful, romantic, passionate and love their humor! They are so good together and their chemistry explodes on the screen….SAFE all the way!

Humor what humor in this pairing ?
It is the problem actually with them, they have no internal conflict, there is nothing “special” there is no humor no witty banter, Sami behaves totally out of character in this pairing. If they wanted a girl for a character like Rafe they could have bring back Carrie Brady but Sami is not the character we were many to love or love to hate with this new couple. And when you are a Sami fan first you can’t root for a cutie cooker couple like that, it is simple to understand.

Fortunately, I disagree….we are all entitled to our opinons. Sami & Rafe are opposites and that is why they work …. they complete one another …. with them there is pure chemistry and passion……. at one point Sami & EJ went well with the story, but her character is no longer that person…. she has the same rashness and illogical mindset, but she has endured much and the death of a child scars the soul….she has matured. Rafe understands her and loves her unconditionally. EJ may “love” her, but he had to lie and manipulate her to make her love him….she cared for the man she thought he was, not who he truly is….that’s not pure love. Sure, back when EJ & Sami were on the screen three years or so ago, their “love” scenes were intense….but Sami had never known what real love was…she was always searching for it. Now she has it with Rafe who loves her totally…..EJ needs a new love interest to expand his character….Sami weakens him…this was proven at the wedding scenes with her & EJ….he needs a partner who will work with him, either for good or ill……Sami can no longer do that…Rafe will always be in her heart now and there are too many deep scars between her & EJ to ever have a happy relationship……….sadly, EJ’s core is too twisted and corrupted by his father to change. EJ & Sami can’t go back to what it was back in the day…. Sami & Rafe have also been scared by all that has occured in the past year and a half….we may not like it, but that’s the story…’s a soap opera and you suffer through it…….I have watch Days since the first day it came on the air, and I can tell you there have been many disappointments, but good times too. They will tease you, anger you, then draw you back in……..I know, I’ve been doing it for 45 years! Enjoy!

Why do you EJ fans always have negative things to say. Because we don’t looove EJ, GMAB!

Hello, Judy T. You’re right, everyone’s entitled to their opinions regarding who belongs with whom, which (non) couple has more chemistry and so on. Personally, I don’t feel Safe- AT ALL- never have and never will.

True, they are opposites and yes, Sami loves Rafe (at the moment) but that doesn’t mean they belong together or that they’re even soulmates. Rafe belongs in a long list of men that Sami idolizes and looks up to (eg Austin and Lucas). Due to her unstable childhood with her parents magically dropping in and out of her life, it’s only logical that she wants stability, safety and a “hero” who protects her. Rafe and her life with him represents all those things. EJ doesn’t fit that profile because (a) he’s a Dimera (ie “the enemy”) and (b) he’s done so many nasty things to her. And, as you’ve mentioned, their history has scarred them both. But Sami is NOT a damsel in distress and she gave as good as she got (if that’s the right expression. Please bear with me, English isn’t my mother tongue and not my second language either. But I digress…).

Sami has put all of these events that led up to the Sydnapping and EJ’s shooting in motion-if she hadn’t lied none of these things would have happend. Period. She has NOT “matured” as you put it: I still see the bad, selfish Sami willing to do anything to cover her own ass (including using her own son). She may attempt to justify her actions all she likes but what she did was WRONG. I understand her motivations for doing what she did BUT shooting a unconscious, heartbroken, drunk in the head is COLD. It was attempted murder for christ sake! And it’s just as bad as what EJ did to her regarding Sydney, probably even worse. In my opinion, EJ and Sami are equally crappy parents, putting their needs and feelings before their children’s. Eg: EJ using his kids as weapons against his ex and Sami constantly dumping them off at their great grand-mother to boink her bf. But, they do love them. Anyway, even if EJ is “evil” and even IF he wanted to take his kids from her (which is doubtful, since he was incapable of doing anything is his inebriated state) she still needs to take responsibility for what she did. That is what a “mature” person does-look at Hope, for instance, and she also has a young daughter depending on her. Also, I wonder how Rafe will react once he finds out that Arianna has proof of Sami’s guilt? And that’s what ultimately led up to her death. Her lies and concealment of that fact from him is yet another example of Safe’s not so “open and honest” relationship. Moreover, Sami has actually “corrupted” Rafe-she’s a negative influence on him and his life. Therefore, I really don’t see them as “the endgame”: it’s only a matter of time before Sami, the black widow, consumes him and moves on to her next victim.

What I like about the romantic potential between EJ and Sami is the fact that he’s a bad boy and she’s a bad girl. These two characters falling for each other is an ORIGINAL concept; whereas the bad girl falling for a good guy and vice versa has been done tenfold. DOOL also needs to modernize and drop these old-fashioned clichés of good vs evil. It’s far more entertaining to have well developed characters who are capable of both positive and nefarious deeds; NOT these cartoonish individuals that the audience can’t relate to. Everyone has good and bad in them. If they continue in this way, they might as well have them all wearing costumes….Hahaha! Moreover, if Safe is such a great couple than why don’t they have a story of their own, WITHOUT EJ having to prop them up at every twist and turn? Well, I know: because they really aren’t compatible and have no substance to them whatsoever. Remove EJ and what have you got? A whole lot of nothingness…

In conclusion, someone can’t manipulate or make someone else love him or her. I believe that she does love EJ, it’s just buried very deeply beneath all that righteous indignation. Or at least she did, back in 2008 and 2009 before the EJole wedding. Hell, Lucas kept mentioning it too and it wasn’t out of jealousy or spite: he had moved on with Chloe. And I might add that EJ wasn’t manipulating or lying to her at all when those scenes aired… There are various examples that I can cite to back that up. But, don’t worry, I won’t because, otherwise this comment will be even more tedious than it already is, for those like yourself that disagree with me. Also, I don’t believe Sami “weakens” EJ- he screws up a lot but he does profoundly, unconditionally and passionately love Sami, far more than Rafe does in my humble opinion. She’s his world, his universe-everything really. And Sami from her part, knows exactly who EJ is, she just needs to accept him wholeheartedly and completely, flaws and all-because she’s just the same. As for chemistry Ejami has it abundance (Safe, on the other hand, doesn’t-they’re a BORING, lifeless, and a run-of-the-mill couple): I discovered a music video of these 2 by accident and now here I am watching DOOL-something I never imagined myself doing, since I don’t waste my time with soap operas. They are UNIQUE and evocative-they generate buzz regardless whether one is a fan of this pairing or not. In a few years time, when this soap has run it’s course they will always be remembered, for the controversy surrounding this pairing alone. Can you honestly say the same for Safe? Nope!

I totally agree with your wonderful comments!!

I discovered Ejami in a similiar way too, and their wonderful chemistry captured me totally and now I find myself watching this soap daily because of these crazy two passionate compelling characters. I agree Sami does not weaken Ej at all, they are both passionate and temperamental so she can give as good as she gets. That is something I love seeing with these two, and the clever banter they share is so funny and entertaining. I love how Sami can keep pushing Ej until he is ready to blow up in fury and yet she still continues to push him not scared of his temper at all, but the funny thing is when she pushes him he actually calms down again. I love how she does that, it makes them more equal. Sami on the other hand spits out before she thinks sometimes, and certainly says some nasty things and gets out her claws from time to time. However, because Ej is self assured and demands respect he always keeps her in line and is able to handle her like no other man ever has. He brings out her confidence and passionate spunk like no other. I think that is what they need to look at when putting characters together, what are their strengths and weaknesses, their personality traits etc. Instead of just putting them together for sake of story plotting. When they do this it takes out all that romance we should feel and leaves us with a feeling distsatistfcation as a viewer. I like Sami as the anti-brady and Ej as the anti-hero perfectly flawed and so passionate and powerful. My favourite grey couple Ejami!!

Love James Scott and Alison Sweeney together, wonderful chemistry!
Ejami all the way!

My favorite Flawed heroine is Carly Manning shes honest real and doesnt go around pointing the finger at people and she has a true honest and protective love for her family. so glad they brought her back makes Dool worth watching again!!! and favorite Duo is Carly and Bo are the best couple on days. Crystal Chappell and Peter Reckell are just amazing together. Bo & Carly have a open hoest and mature love for one another they get each other they know they are not perfect and they admit it!! I have been wating for a long time for them to get the love story they deserve!!

For me it is EJ Wells Dimera and Samantha Brady.

For me it was, is and always will be Bo and Carly(Peter Reckell and Crystal Chappell). I stopped watching DAYS when she left and was stunned to hear she’d come back and now, I’m rooting for them to get all they were cheated of. Their bond is so deep , mature and spiritual and they make each other so very happy. They more than deserve a second chance ; a LONG TERM ONE!

So true Im rooting for them to get all they were cheated of too! Carly is the pefect flawed herion! It wil always be Bo and Carly!!!!!

May I ask why you used such an old picture of EJami and it’s not even a happy one or a “together” one like the rest are?

This pool spam, you can vote more than once, why he did not use the current image from the beautiful things ejami had? Why this picture? Like I said it seems to me that this site is trying to push rafe to we sew how it works for other!

well there aren’t many happy times.

I wish you had Ej and Nicole up there, Nicole cares way more for Sydney then Sami ever could. Sami is always dropping off her ‘daughter’ with Grouchy Gramma Caroline. That’s not mothering. Nicole had what it takes to be a Dimera wife. She over looked what Ej did, Sami just wanted to change him. Bring back Ejole and Sydole, and bring back the best evil power couple in daytrime. Nicole should definetly be Sydney’s mom and Ej’s wife, never, ever Sami. My thoughts, save the bashing for else where please. It will make anyone who trashes my thoughts look really bad.

Naaaa, I like Nicole, and don’t ever want to see her with EJ ever again! She shouldn’t have been there with him the first time either. And Sydney has nothing to do with her, I want Nicole so far out of that as a Nicole fan. I care about her character, and that is just all the wrong place and life for her. She needs to be able to move forward and move on, not always have to constantly go backwards to a life and people that are not meant for her and have nothing to do with her. EJ can’t stand her and hates her, he even hated and couldn’t stand her when they were together. Dude doesn’t like her at all. Just likes to use her, and if she offers and allows that, he’s going to do it. Then trash and dump her. A lot of Nicole fans don’t want her in that anymore ever again or at all! Neither her nor EJ deserves that. That was horrible and terrible for the both of them. Just Sami’s daughter Sydney alone is not going to do it and no reason for either one of them EJ or Nicole to be there with one another. It was horrible!

Nicole definitely belongs with Brady or Eric Brady! That’s for her. And Nicole isn’t really evil, she’s just often very stupid at times, but not really evil and not a good fit or right fit at all with the DiMeras. When she was there it looked stupid and just so odd, because that’s just not Nicole or her history or persona at all. But definitely is Sami’s. Sami was always built up for and down right bad and evil a lot of times, the perfect DiMera and always belonged with that family. Nicole is more of the Kiriakis empire type and definitely the thorne in the Brady & Black family sides by being with either Eric Brady or Brady. Now, the DiMera part where Nicole fits in is through Brady as Brady. As Brady is actually Brady Black Kiriakis-DiMera. Brady’s mother is Victor’s daughter & Brady’s father is John Black, who is Santo DiMera & Colleen Brady’s son [from EJ & Sami’s past life together in Ireland.] Brady’s father John and Stefano have the same dad [Santo DiMera]. Stefano is Brady’s uncle. And EJ is Brady’s cousin and step-brother (through EJ’s marriage to Sami before.) So with Brady, Nicole gets both Kiriakis and DiMera as Brady is both. And with Eric Brady, who is the heir to the Brady family, Nicole gets that as well. (Much better than her being with EJ. EJ doesn’t like and can’t stand her. Nicole doesn’t need that in her life. Sami is a much better DiMera fit and wife for the the family and EJ. It’s not always about being evil, as that’s not EJ, its about just being you the character. And evil is not EJ or Nicole. Sami is more evil than the both of them and when you know her history and with the things she’s done recently…she definitely is! LOL!!!

And Sami has never wanted to change EJ, she makes EJ want to be a better man, a man loves that with their women. It’s not about change, she knows exactly who EJ is and what he does or can do and what he’s capable of, because she’s done it too and wrote the book for it all as well. And she told the audience herself that she’s very much aware of it and knows and even joked around with him about. Sami used to work for the DiMera’s. Sami was a DiMera. And was always with them and involved with them, even before EJ. She wants EJ to be EJ, not his father, she just wants EJ to be his own man, with his own family and life, not his father’s. Just like EJ wants Sami to just be Sami and just be a woman and mother, not live her life by other’s rules and regulations for her. Not live her hypocritical families life who constantly treated and did her wrong before, but to just be her.

It’s not about changing a man or just accepting them, deep down that’s not what EJ wants to be, he doesn’t want to be evil, and he doesn’t want to do those things, and he doesn’t want a woman to bow down to his every beck & call and just accept things. He wants his woman to tell him when he’s wrong and that he can do much better in life, and that he is his own man with his own family, and his father doesn’t have a say in any of that when its his life and his family. EJ wants and loves a challenge and loves and wants Sami. So, I don’t want Nicole anywhere around that anymore, that just isn’t for her. And I don’t want her just there to just accept and beck and call at EJ’s and Stefano’s every move and word. That’s so weak and pathetic. Anna doesn’t do that, Lexi doesn’t do that, and neither does Sami. Those are DiMera women.

Now, Nicole does that with her ex-husband Victor and the Kiriakis’ she doesn’t beck and call at his every word and command and Brady’s either. Much better fit for Nicole. Much better life for her. Brady and Eric truly love and care about her. EJ could care less! If Nicole drowned in the Salem river, got ran over, or died…EJ wouldn’t give two cents nor would he care at all. He would probably cheer over Nicole’s dead body and have a cheerleading squad come and hold a pep rally over her body to celebrate her death. That’s how EJ looks at Nikki and thinks of her…he doesn’t and doesn’t care. Nicole doesn’t need someone like that, EJ doesn’t need a woman like her, and neither one of them are good at all for the other. They bring out the absolute worst in each other and something neither one of them wants to be. Nicole wasn’t really happy there either, it was way too much pressure and all about Sami & EJ and their family, and all about Nikki trying to lie and cover up such a disgusting thing that she did. I don’t want Nicole going through life just obsessed with Sydney. Nicole doesn’t deserve that and that’s not fair to her or to Sydney. It’s none of Nicole’s business or place. Like it or not Sami’s her mother and Sami pushed her out and carried her and she does love her daughter. People just need to let Sami be with her family and stop trying to pin her up against every man in Salem. She has a family and people should just let her be and start her life with her family instead of this man this and this man that. And the same with Nikki…what kind of life is she going have there in the DiMera household. It would be completely horrible for her there. As opposed to the great life, love, and family that she could have with both Brady and Eric. Two men that actually love and care about her. It would be a disgrace and horrible for Nicole to go backwards like that, when she could have a great life, love, and family with Brady and Eric. What’s much better for her and meant for her.

I just can’t stand it when people are ready to serve Nicole up for more crap and just toss her at the DiMeras and EJ. For what? Why? She doesn’t deserve that and or be there or with any of that. They don’t like her and don’t even want her around, and would kill her if they could and really wanted to deal with it. She doesn’t deserve that kind of life at all. And people should just leave her alone, and stop trying to pawn her off on EJ and the DiMeras. That poor woman would be miserable there. People need to just leave Nicole alone and let her move on with HER life. Not trap her down with the DiMeras and EJ and just throw her under the bus like that just to beck and call at their every move and command. Nicole’s life is much better without them in it and with Brady and Eric in her life. Much, much better for her and a chance at a real life, love, and family with Brady and Eric and to be a great and much better woman, not a just settling one and beck and calling one!

I totally agree with everything you said!

Nah she just never wanted him at all unless her “other” options were available. So yeah she never wanted to change him, she just didn’t want him.

I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you regarding EJole.

First of all, EJ was never in love with Nicole. He loved her, yes, but it was on a superficial and a conditional basis: he only married her because he thought she was the mother of his child. He even admitted as much on the plane when they were on the way to Paris. But once her deception came to light he dropped her like a hot potato and has hated her ever since. Moreover, Nicole was literally his rebound: he jumped into a relationship with her after Sami kept pushing him away. She was also a substitute: Nicole is very similar to Sami (which EJ has mentioned a number of times), and due to the fact that she was pregnant, it gave EJ a second chance at having that family that he craved so much.He was grateful to Nicole for giving him the stability and love (as Lexie perceptively pointed out to him at Grace’s grave)-something he couldn’t get with Sami. Simply put, he settled for her and his love for her was an extension of his love for Sydney. Once the illusion of “the happy family” crumbled, his affection for Nicole evaporated very rapidly. Sami, on the other hand, he never stopped loving her even when he “hated” her. Even now, when he knows that she put a bullet in his brain for christ sake, he STILL loves her. It may come off as a tad bit pathetic on his part, but that has always been the one constant in his life since his debut on DOOL. One can’t help who one loves.

Second, Nicole is no match for a powerhouse like EJ. Yes, she supported him, accepted him and stood by him BUT EJ needs someone who can challenge him, and allow him to become his “own man”-not Stefano’s clone. Nicole is NOT the woman who can do that. During the EJole era, EJ became more and more “evil” and was someone he didn’t want to be (as Sami pointed out to him in the park when they were discussing Johnny’s custody). EJ is a bad boy, true, but he also has good in him and unlike Sami, Nicole only brought out the worst in him. She was also pathetic, needy, clingy and weak when she was with EJ. EJ was very abusive towards Nicole (and still is): manhandling her, choking her, sending her to the hospital, etc…. In addition, the only time that EJ ever showed any real affection for her was when (a) Sami kept rejecting him & pushing him away (b) Sami was out of the picture, staying at the Safe house (no pun intended) (c) during her pregnancy and (d) when he was pissed off at Sami regarding the whole Grace debacle. What it all comes down to is this: he was really just reacting to Sami and her behaviour towards him. That, and as I have mentioned before, his desire for a loving home.The fact that he kept putting off the EJole “honeymoon” spoke volumes as well.

Third, like yourself and Tara, I rather like Nicole now-provided that she stays away from EJ. She deserves better than him: she deserves someone who can truly love her and appreciate her for who she is. Brady, Eric or someone new are far better options than EJ: Brady was always there for during her miscarriage and helped her out in her time of need. Right now, he’s a bit of an ass but she did hurt him. And as for Eric, according AZ herself he is the “love of Nicole’s life”.

To conclude, Nicole isn’t EJ’s “equal” and their history has proven that they aren’t compatible. Sami is a far superior match for him: she calls him out on his shit and almost everything he has done, she has done herself. They are truly mirror images of each other. The most recent scenes prove that. As for Sami not loving EJ-yes, she hates his guts right now and is “in love” with Rafe. But considering what he put her through it’s perfectly understandable. EJ always seems to be Sami’s second choice but that has a lot to do with her unstable upbringing, her need for a hero figure (which EJ obviously isn’t-quite the contrary in fact), her need to be accepted by her family and her desire to be “good”.

Sorry for the long post, but that is just how I feel about EJole. For the record, this isn’t intended to “bash” your opinion.

When you mean she calls him out, does shooting him in the head count? Cause the Sami I’ve seen the past 4 years is a former shell of herself, a weakling.

PS: I do agree with you on one point though: Nicole is a much better mother to Sydney than Sami is. However, Sydney IS Sami’s daughter and despite all her faults, Sami does love her. Sydney belongs with her mother and Nicole isn’t that-there’s no way she popped out a baby while switching Grace & Sydney. Perhaps her child is alive, but it sure as hell isn’t Sydney.

I agree with you a 100% on Nicole. Nicole does have everything to make the perfect Diemra wife. Her and Ej were perfect for one another. I loved it when it was Ej,Nicole with Sydney. Sami is hardly ever with Sydney. In the two years of her life. So I sure hope they are going to make Sydney Ej and Nicoles. I would love for somehow since Nicole was far enough along to have a premi and baker decided to keep the baby and tell her she misscarried. Ejole have what it takes to make it as a true family. They always have the same goals. Just like SAFE does. That is when the ratings were at the highest when it was Ejole and SAFE

EJ and Sami as favourite couple all the way! James Scott and Alison Sweeney are fantastic together!

I love the chemistry of EJAMI. I love that they are becoming a supercouple of all times just like Bo/Hope, JARLENA, Kim/Shane, Jen/Jack, Payla and others that I can’t recall at the moment. EJAMI are the supercouple of the future. Their chemistry is just amazing and each actor’s talents are just amazing!


Michael, just wanted to say have enjoyed your inteviews with the cast of Days.

Not sure I would give the results to this poll. If you can enter a vote more than once in a day or week it is going to be spammed and looking at your results, I think this is what has happened.
I agree with Maej26….could you not find a loving picture of EJ and Sami? Who ever put those together looks a little biased. Just Sayin.

Thank you very much.
and there are many ways to cheat the system and thet come from one that works on the network, it’s strange to us Because in adonis you can clearly see how many fans there for Each one, because they have a system of voting very strong You can not vote more than once,They detect ip and Fake ip. amazing where you can see the true results!

As for your question I’m sure there are many ejami like me, once we get it is spam we just do not vote. but if you look at the responses tell me for who all comments? they ar ejami

Just want to say thanks for doing these polls and for all your great interviews of the DOOL cast. Of all the interviews I’ve read I definately have enjoyed yours the most.

To AnnDee you may want to consider the current sl and frustration and disgust many, including Ejami fans, are feeling at this time especially with Sami. From the many comments I have read on many different boards I would bet that is a contributing factor in these poll results. And Carbo and Bope have huge followings and are currently in the midst of huge campaigns for their couples. So for the most part this poll makes perfect sense to me.

Hopefully Michael will share some of the comments as well as the poll results because despite everything they have done to them Ejami is still one of the most sought after couples.

Polls are definitely false here. I dont know anyone that I speak to that does not want Bo and Hope together. They are the number 1 super couple of all time. Carly and Bo have no chemistry and not nearly as much history as Bo and Hope…Bo even loved Billie more then he loved Carly… we havent even heard him mention her in the last 15 years. All those times when Billie was around you always heard him say things like she was the only other woman he loved in life besides hope. You never heard him say anything at all about Carly. And now Bope fans are slapped in the face with this Carly storyline. I will watch again when Bo and Hope arfe back together.

Love Carly. I’m watching Days again, just for her.

LOVE this poll!! And psyched that you log IP addresses – its not just the 8 of us deluded fools over on Sony who love Danloe!!!! Now TPTB need to get a clue and give us a sexy, romantic Danloe s/l like when they started in 2008. So many of us were watching to see if Daniel would be the babydaddy and then tuned out after the paternity reveal with Melanie because it = Danloe is doomed, Darly is coming etc. Who wants to watch your favorite couple be destroyed? I came back to Days because I saw a Danloe scene in Dec 2008 and I won’t watch this show without Danloe. In scenes together, not constantly apart. Thanks again.

Bo & Carly are my favroite Hero & Heroine. Peter & Crystal are the reason I watch days. The way they portray their characters you can feel every emotion they are feeling and they don’t even need to speak to do it. Look at their eyes and their body language – that is true talent — these two set the screen on fire and I wish Days would keep them front and center where they belong!

Great post

Peopel!!! E.J. raped Sami and blackmailed her and threatened to kill her husband!!!! That makes them a romantic couple???!!! Does that also mean that Todd from OLTL should be a permanent love interest for Marty, the woman he helped to gang rape???!!!! Come on now!

EJ did not Rape Sami. He refused to help Lucas unless she had sex with him. Also remember Sami drugged Austin and had sex with him. Her husband Lucas actually put a bullet in EJ. Sami blackmailed Lexie to tell her own sister that if she had a baby the baby would be born with birth defects, she caused Phillip to lose his leg. She lied about Lucas causing him to lose custody of Will. Sami is every bit as evil as EJ and she was this way long before he came to town.

So in other words she deserved it.

She did not have to have sex with EJ, he just wasn’t going to save Lucas if she didn’t Sami would have had to take a chance that she could have found someone else in that horrible blizzard to save Lucas. Sami did one of her very few selfless acts, she loved Lucas so much that she was willing to sleep with a man she did not want to sleep with in order to save Lucas’ life. It was wrong of EJ to not be willing to save Lucas’s life without putting conditions on it, but no more wrong than lets say shooting an unconscious man in the head!!!

I’ve been watching DOOL since the very beginning and have loved so many of the storylines, but none more exciting than Bo and Hope. They are the “SUPERCOUPLE” of all time.

How is Sami considered a flawed heroine but Nicole isn’t? To me, they are the same character. Also, how come Eric Martsolf and Arianne Zucker aren’t an option for fave duo?? My vote will always go to EJami but it just doesn’t seem right not to have Bricole as an option. You might say Bricole are too new as a couple but wouldn’t that same logic apply to Magic as well?

I agree, how could Bricole not be on this list . Bricole should be an option (as well as Arianne Zucker), there are more people that like them together than some of the other couples on this list. Anyway, I like Bricole together but I love Ejami together so my vote goes to them.

My votes went to Crystal Chappell and Carbo!

Carly’s flaw is that she tends to play doctor more than just in the hospital. She carries her work home too. Carly sometimes does the wrong thing at times, but for the right reason! Her heart is in the right place.

Carbo on the other hand is pure magic. The honesty in their relationship is so refreshing to watch.

A strong and healthy relationship is founded on trust, honesty, attention and lots of sacrifices including putting aside our “individual good” for a “greater good” (beyond self).

This is Bo and Carly! Like CC said their love is so honest and pure.

Honest and pure..For the 5 minutes she was around in the past she left Bo for someone else.. Hope on the other hand has only done that when Bo screwed up with Billie. The writers have really screwed this up they shouldve killed off Hope again if they wanted Carly back in the picture with Bo. That is the only time Bo makes sense with anyone else is when Hope is “not alive”. We are all entitled to our opinion so I am not bashing yours but I will not watch with Bo and Hope not toghether.

Most of the comments here is Ejami fans, how come the polls still low.????? Michael Fairman

I think its because they are making an average of 5 comments a piece, maybe more??? Kinda like spamming polls.

Well it seems some of Carly’s fans found a way to vote over and over again.It’s so patehtic.Anyway,the best heroine still is Chloe and the hottest and best couple still is Danloe.,no matter how much they try to ruin them for SAINT CARLY and SAINT MELANIE to get a sl.


Like 748 votes for Chloe are believable? Chloe the Ghoul girl now WAS a flawed heroine but the Chloe we have been seeing for a long while now is more of a vixen. And that is not an insult imo. I love Chloe as I love almost all the DOOL characters and my opinion on that list I believe comes from a fair POV. and I think Carly is more fitting to that title i.e. flawed heroine. And Hope definitely is way more fitting than Chloe.

I definitely agree with everyone who has said Sami is not a heroine. lol She never was and she never can be at this point. And I like it that way. Scheming Sami works.

NB’s votes are belieavable because Chloe has always been a heroine and mroe precisely a flawed heroine,even know with all the assassination of the character she is still one of the best women on he show.Craly?Right niow they’re making her a saint.If anyone is entitled to this title it’s Chloe but you know I don;t care.i’m just glad that for once some of NB’s fans(God knows she ahs a huge fanbase) have been more vocals then usually.

Chloe was the most interesting teen to ever walk the streets of Salem. She is totally flawed, yet selfless and beautiful. Clearly this catagory was made for her. Herines should be beautiful, not sporting moustaches. Get a dictionary……….

HAHAHAHA!!! Sorry…had to laugh at Sami being a Heroine; that’s a JOKE considering she just put a bullet in an unconscious man’s head!

Love BOPE and love EJAMI! Hate hate hate SAFE!

I don’t agree with Sami being a herione either, she is just as cunning and devious as her better half Ej DiMera!! My vote goes to Ejami of course, never have I felt so much passionate and capitvated by a lovestory until I discovered Ejami! They are the hottest couple on this show and even after 4 years still continue to surprise and delight me all at once!! Ejami all the way!!

I love Sami and Rafe together. It is about time that she had someone that really lovesa her for herself.

Ej loves her for herself actually.

I agree. I love SAFE. They really and truly love each other. I look forward to seeing more of their love story unfold this winter.

I love to see James & Ali together hottest and best couple I ever seen in days for long time

I love Bope and Danloe, but I love Danloe more so they get my vote.
Voted Hope for favorite heroine.
Carly as a heroine is funny.

GO EJAMI!!!!!!!!!!!! James Scott and Alison Sweeney are the best. Plus, Sami is no heroine and Im sure she got the SOD award for America’s Favourite Villain. I also wish Eric Brady would come back (but only if its Jensen Ackles- the best). Thanks for the poll Michael

i love james scott and alison sweeney they totally belong together their children need them together as sami and ej it’s so obvious james scott and alison sweeney are so magical together in real life and both in their charaters

wow…the Ejami is much smaller than I thought!! Go Danloe and Carbo!!

I LOVE Danloe and Nadia/Shawn. Hope they win all their categories. No one brings passion to the Days screen like they do and as a couple, they ONLY love each other…very rare indeed. It’s interesting seeing the amount of support for Danloe & Carbo ~ looks like Darly would be a huge flop if TPTB decided to go in that direction. Let’s keep the Danloe love flowing 🙂 xoxo

Darly would be like a redo of Craig/Nancy…only with a worse wardrobe! They would be like the asexual couple that exists only in theory to fill the age range…so unappealing and unromantic. That would take a whole lotta booze and roofies to make fly….LMAO

I agree, Sio!

And like Craig/Nancy, Daniel/Carly, would look like the man is 10 years younger than the woman.

To laughable to be taken seriously!

I could see Carly with Roman, not the hot and youthful Daniel.

Sami and Lucas has always been my fav,and wish Bryan Dattilo/Lucas was back,but not with Sami for his kids and me 🙂

Thanks Michael for posting a fun poll for the fans!!
I voted for Shawn and Nadia , I love Danloe and hope they win.

Polls are definitely false here. I dont know anyone that I speak to that does not want Bo and Hope together. They are teh number super couple of all time. Carly and Bo have no chemistry and not nearly as much history as Bo and Hope…Bo even loved Billie more then he loved Carly we havent even heard him mention her in the last 15 years. I will watch again when Bo and Hope arfe back together.

EXCLUSIVE: Jacob Young, Joan Collins and Nadia Bjorlin to Prague to Film ‘Murder Between Friends’

On Thursday night during the Michael Fairman Channel’s livestream interview centering around Jason Cook’s (ex-Shawn, DAYS and ex-Matt, GH) latest movie Four For Fun which stars Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-JR, AMC, ex-Rick, B&B and ex-Lucky, GH), revealed another upcoming film project with some very familiar faces.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.

Days of our Lives Star Blake Berris Chats On the Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein Mystery, Working with His New Co-Stars, and the Last Christmas Episode with Bill Hayes

On Days of our Lives, the return of Blake Berris is making for some very intriguing drama, with the audience guessing just which way the story will go.

When Berris arrived back on Days of our Lives, after previously playing Nick Fallon, he was taking on the new role of Everett Lynch, who has a past with Stephanie Johnson (Abigail Klein) and Jada Hunter (Elia Cantu). Only, as it has been revealed, the past he had with Jada was under the name “Bobby Stein,” who from what we can tell was far from a nice guy.

Blake visited the Michael Fairman Channel for a livestream interview this week, where fans in the live chat were weighing-on what could be the truth about the guy – is he a split personality suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder? Did the accident that cost him a year of his life in a coma, never happen? Recently, someone set fire to the beloved Horton house. Fans are suspecting it would have been “Bobby” who is working for Clyde Weston (James Read). Others believe that Everett/Bobby could actually be Clyde’s son. With upcoming therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) about to start, things are about to get more juicy in Salem.

Here are just a few excerpts from our conversation with Blake on a myriad of Everett/Bobby subjects. Make sure to check out the full interview for more.

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character on the canvas. Didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So, we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

What has it been like working with Abigail Klein?

BLAKE: I think she is extraordinary. We start off sort of frosty, or she’s frosty with me, like she doesn’t want to let me in. And then, for a while things are going really well. I just could not adore Abigail more. She’s such a good actor. I could always rely on her to bring me back into a scene and be there in this emotionally, supportive way.

Photo: JPI

Everett and Chad seemed to be becoming friend-ish, when all went awry when at the PCPD interrogation room, Everett let him know about Elia and Bobby Stein, and Chad let him have it for worming his way back in to Stephanie’s life.

BLAKE: Billy would call us the ‘disgusting brothers’ and that’s a reference from Succession, because all of a sudden they’re just so chummy with each other. It’s like all of a sudden we just had this like ‘Bernstein and Woodward’, sort of dynamic duo. I think that Everett really started to think of Chad as a friend and feels sort of disappointed, and he feels, “Oh, it’s that easy? I just needed to have some other identity and now you’re a fair-weather friend?”‘

Photo: JPI

In recent scenes, Jada sees Bobby Stein for the first time, and we see you and Elia Cantu share scenes with each other for the first time. What is it like working with Elia?

BLAKE: She’s fire, man. She comes in hot and she tells you the way it’s going to be. I think early on, we were trying to suss each other out and the more we worked together, the more comfortable you get with somebody. I think actors do this sometimes with each other; if there’s spice on screen, you like to keep some of what you have on-screen in your (real-life) interactions because it helps … it helps the work.  Eventually, we just sort of wore each other down and we’re like, ‘I actually totally get you, and you’re great.'”

Did you know that they were going to make Everett Lynch a Jewish character? This is only the second time in the history of the show that they have even had a Jewish character and didn’t they reveal this at the Horton family Christmas episode?

BLAKE: No, they never asked me. I am half-Jewish on my dad’s side. There was never like, ‘You’re Jewish, right? We can call you Jewish on the show?’ At the Horton Christmas, “They made a real point of it, yeah.”

And now the new ‘character’ is “Bobby Stein” …

BLAKE: “Right, and that suggests more Jewish, and then Lynch must be coming from somewhere else, maybe the mother. I was so curious because I think the show has been historically, I’m gonna say, Catholic more than like Wasps. With the Bradys there’s this sort of Irish influence, and then the DiMeras, that’s Italian. So we’ve got Catholics sort of on both sides that are dominant. Now I, “represent”.

Photo: JPI

You were on set and in the annual Horton Christmas episode which sadly marked the last for Days of our Lives legendary Bill Hayes, who passed away in January of this year.  What do you recall of that tape day?

BLAKE: It was the Christmas episode when we were watching Susan (Julie) and Bill, say ‘Merry Christmas.’  And there was something about it that just felt like it could be the last time. I mean, it wrecked us all on set. Bill gets so choked up and there was something really profound about the moment. They kiss each other as they have so many times before on the show. It was just beautiful. It felt beautiful to be there for that last Christmas. He’s just such an icon. Every time I’d see him, he was so with it … he knew my name, he knew his lines. What an incredible, incredible man.

Photo: JPI

Fans will get to see Everett in therapy sessions with Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)? Would you say she is helping the guy?

BLAKE: Deidre’s always making jokes about Marlena, ‘She’s the worst therapist in the world’ (Laughs) I remember in the first therapy session, we almost couldn’t get through the scenes because it’s just so clear that Everett has a litany of very profound psychological issues that he is going to have to work through. He’ll keep coming back. This guy’s gonna pay the bills!

Photo: JPI

Viewers are waiting to see how they mystery of Everett Lynch/Bobby Stein plays out. What can you say as a tease for what’s to come?

BLAKE: As far as a tease, I would say, you have all these characters sort of, trying to wake up the ‘sleeping giant’ in a way. I think it’s safe to say that like if you poke a bear, the bear might wake up.

Watch the livestream chat with Blake in full below.

Now let us know, what do you think is going with Everett/Bobby? What has happened to him in his past? Share your theories in the comment section below, and make sure to catch Days of our Lives next week on Peacock for more to his story.
