As an EJAMI fan who has waited for six long years for my favorite couple to get together, I am highly disappointed in what the writers are calling “lock, stock and barrel”.
Am I excited that they are FINALLY engaged? YES! Of course I am! … Am I relieved that at long last, there are no outside forces getting in their way (Rafe, Lucas or Nicole)? It goes without saying.
That being said, I am still at a loss for the lack of real story for this super couple. They are being used as a support couple for WILSON (Will and Sonny) …. And what’s the deal with leaving Rafe smack dab in the middle of our couple’s lives? WHY torture us with all of these awkward moments with him and Sami, if we are indeed getting EJAMI lock, stock and barrel? And again, WHY do we have to suffer through Lucas acting all sanctimonious with Sami, and yelling in her face about how stupid she is? I thought when they broke LUMI (Lucas and Sami) up, we were DONE with that childish behavior.
Okay, so we are seeing first hand (IMO) that no one else who ever claimed to love Sami really did…. I’ll give the writers that, but where’s the real story for EJAMI? There are so many opportunities that could be used …. The fact that they are from rivaling families … a modern day Romeo and Juliet for one… Stephano could have been shown as being more true to his character, upon learning that his son was going to marry a Brady woman… AGAIN.
Roman could have confronted Sami about being engaged to a Dimera again, instead of running off and whining about it to someone else… But the writers have decided to give us the watered down Disney version of Stephano, where it’s all hearts and flowers and acceptance… wasting a perfect chance to give two great actors some real meat to sink their teeth into, storyline wise.
I LOVE EJAMI… and I can’t WAIT to see them actually exchange vows that will be lasting… I’m MORE than ready for EJAMI’s happily ever after, but there is no need to back burner this super couple, just because they are finally, at long last, in love and engaged.
Stop shoving Rafe and Kate (RATE) down our throats… most of us aren’t buying them as a couple…. Enough with Gabby and Nick already… (they are boring and what Nick is doing, controlling her life and sneaking around behind her back, blackmailing the father of her child and attacking the baby’s grandmother… THAT IS NOT LOVE!)
You claim to have “listened” to our pleas when you gave us the couple we have been clammering for, for so long… but you fail to use them as anything more than filler or to pimp other couples…. Clearly my idea of lock, stock and barrel is different than the people in charge over at days… In my book, we should get a happy, in love couple, who will get married, yes… but we should be seeing a lot more of them… give them a story of their own, and not just use them to prop other (WEAKER) actors up (cough cough… RAFE… cough)
But that’s just the way I see it.
