SPOILED ROTTEN: 10 of Daytime's Best Loved Poor Little Rich Boys!

(No. 4)  Prince Nikolas Cassadine, General Hospital

His Royal Highness, Prince Nikolas Cassadine (Tyler Christopher) grew up with everything a boy could want — except for a mother. When Nik came to Port Charles to save his dying sister Lesley Lu’s life, he was filled with resentment for their mother Laura Spencer (Genie Francis), a woman he’d been led to believe callously abandoned him at birth.

While Laura was ultimately able to get Nikolas to believe the truth—his evil father and grandmother forced her to leave him behind—the icy heir never quite learned how completely trust anyone; that is, with the exception of Emily Quartermaine (Natalia Livingston).

Nikolas fell in love with Emily while she was battling breast cancer—and involved with another man—however she had loved the clueless royal since their teen years! After Emily’s ghastly demise (not from the cancer, from a Sweeps period serial killer years later!), a heartbroken Nikolas regressed back to his angry, Cassa-teen days. He even went after his brother Lucky’s (Jonathan Jackson) girl, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst)! Here’s hoping when and if this prince comes back to Port Charles, he’s learned to behave in a courtlier manner.

I just started watching Days again in the fall, before that I hadn't seen the show since when the Gemini twins story, so this is the first I'm seeing of EJ and missed out on all that other stuff. I disagree that Him and Sami are like Todd and Marty, because Marty was a victim, Sami is no body's vicitim she has balls and can go toe to toe with anyone.
I do agree that Sami could have been the next Erica Kane and I could still see that happening the writers seem to be makeing Sami more selfish and selfabsorbed like she used to be.

But Sami's selfishness is not what gave her fans. That is not what makes her Sami.

It was her independant nature. Her get into trouble, I'll get out of trouble attitute. She used to be quick to anger and slow to forgiveness. She used to feel like she could mess with her family, but anyone else mess with would face her wrath.

But this Sami just gets handed jobs and apartments she doesn't deserve. This Sami is not sure of anything. She is fickle with men and life in general. She is backing EJ and Stephano when they have tried to destroy her and her family time and time again. Who knew she was so forgiving.

Sami has been ruined in the last several years and part of that happened when EJ came along and yes, they decided to make her his constant victim.

Two of the show's strongest bitches (Nicole and Sami) are wimps when they put them with EJ, a character whose bad deeds are erased with each new story. But what do I expect? They did the same thing with Kate and Stephano.

Overexposure kills any character and that includes Sami and EJ. I don't think James Scott is a great or even good actor but he's got what most of daytime lacks in male leads and even females. Charm, presence, and charisma. And as much as I dislike Victor, Braden still has charisma and presence. Id trade these 2 over any of the untalented lackluster wash up males on GH. I don't think putting EJ on 5'days a week is any better than Sami being on 5 days a week but what he suffers from most is inconsistent writing. This regime being the worse.

How about Y&R's Jack Abbott? How about OLTL's Todd Manning whose father mistreated him because he's not his biological son, who would then rape Marty Saybrooke and would later learn his real father is Asa Buchanan? How about Stefano Dimera's sons Tony and Peter Blake? How about Ross Chandler who was caught between the feud of his uncle Adam Chandler and father Palmer Cortland?
