From the very beginning, EJAMI have lit up our screens with their out of this world chemistry. The couple inspired die-hard fans who have put up with a lot of crap thrown our way over the years since that fateful day when Sami knocked on EJ’s door and he opened it in that towel. We have stuck by our couple through thick and thin, cheering when they were good, and complaining loudly when they weren’t. We’ve been thrown bones here and there to keep us tuned in, while other fan bases have been given the whole feast, time and time again.
We have tuned out in droves when times were bad, causing the ratings to slump into an “all time low”, only to tune back in, when we were given positive EJAMI spoilers; bringing the ratings to such a high spike that there was no denying the numbers of EJAMI fans out there. We have put together videos showing how many people are out there who want EJAMI, we have sent postcards and letters. We have inundated the powers that be with phone calls and petitions.
Still, every time we think we are going to really have our turn, something happens just when it’s really starting to look good for us, and some interloper is thrown in… or BACK in, to the mix…. Most of the time, said interloper bores us out of our minds, and we tune back out in droves; taking the ratings with us.
We have now been given Corday’s word that they are giving EJAMI “lock, stock and barrel”. I am both excited and nervous. I’ve been burned by Corday’s empty promises where EJAMI is concerned so many times now, that I’m afraid to believe it. Rafe, Lucas and Nicole need to be taken out of EJAMI’s storyline and given something else; with someone else… somewhere else. If they can’t find a purpose for the character outside of being in the middle of EJAMI’s love story, get rid of the character for crying out loud. NONE of the fan bases are happy with the status quo right now, where we are all being thrown bones at the same time. I realize the thought process behind this is to not make any one fan base so mad that they tune out…. But the reality is that we are ALL fed up and are ready to jump ship.
Something has to be done, and fast. It’s time to take a chance on EJAMI and really give them the chance to really be happy in love and in a real relationship; living in the same house as a family as man and wife. Know this… EJAMI fans are tired of being jerked around. If something isn’t done soon, a lot of us are ready to just give up on Days of our lives… Myself included.
