Given all the men that Sami Brady has had over the years, I must admit that I’m slightly envious of her. I mean, who wouldn’t want a man (with all good intentions) practically pawning for you everyday, wanting to spend the rest of his life with you? I wouldn’t give that up, that’s for sure!
However, while some of Sami’s relationships have been filled with love and romance, once a certain man by the name of EJ Dimera walked in, it became “so long romance, hello passion!” for our fair Samantha Brady. Now, I admit, I’m not a complete EJami fan, but I’m working on that. However, on some rare occasions, Mr. EJ Dimera (and his personality) is starting to grow on me. No, not the devious, scheming side to him, but more the gentle, caring and yes, I admit, romantic side to him.
Now, I know in the past I was angrily writing about how I couldn’t stand what EJ did to Sami, and yes, I still hold true to those proclamations. I mean, how can you fall for a man who kidnapped your own CHILD just to get into your good graces? However, having watched EJ over the last few weeks….well, Rafe, I’m sorry to say that your loss becomes EJ’s gain.
Given the history that Sami and EJ have, not to mention the children they share, I think it’s about time they both grow up, and finally give their children something they both lacked in their own childhoods—a foundation built with love and family. These two need to stop playing the cat-and-mouse chasing after each other games (because, really, how far can they go with it?), and start to realize that they need to either work on a relationship, or give up the notion of being together entirely. Sure, it provides great dramatic entertainment for viewers, but who can stand to watch Sami go from one guy to another day in and day out? EJ and Sami both need to wise up, accept and deal with the feelings they have for each other, and portray themselves as responsible, mature adults who can work their differences out, and yet establish a loving environment for their children, as well as for themselves.
While I admit, the passion between Sami and EJ is enough to light up my TV (and keep me completely glued), I still stand by the notion that Sami and EJ both need to realize that their actions affect not only everyone around them, but especially their own children. If these two are meant to be, then let’s all hope they can finally be mature grownups and do the right thing for everyone involved.
