HomeTVDays of Our LivesSOAP BYTES: Does Sami Love Lucas on Days of Our Lives? Phyllis Clings to Her Delusions on The Young and the Restless Luke Kerr July 24, 2012 11 Comments DAYS BYTES: Rafe (Galen Gering) arrived at the DiMera mansion and slapped a pair of handcuffs on EJ (James Scott). Roman (Josh Taylor) revealed, while Sami (Alison Sweeney) was standing there, that EJ isn’t Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) son. Sami then hauled off and socked EJ. Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) issued another ultimatum to Sami. He told her he won’t go down "this road" again, saying it was him or EJ. We all know how Sami gets when faced with an ultimatum. Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Madison (Sarah Brown) revealed to Kate (Lauren Koslow) and Ian (Ian Buchanan) they were getting married the next day. Daniel (Shawn Christian) ripped into Nicole (Arianne Zucker) because he believed she was trying to seduce him, while his daughter is missing. God, I hate this pairing. Could Daniel please die in the upcoming “DAYSaster?” EJ told Will (Chandler Massey) to get the copy of the video surveillance and give it to his attorney. Sonny (Freddie Smith) wasn’t convinced of EJ’s innocence. 11 Responses SoapArmageddon July 25, 2012 Lucas’ return has been a bust. They are writing him as an insecure, self-righteous douche. I don’t see any of the famous chemistry Bryan Dattilo and Alison Sweeney supposedly had. He also gets some of the worst, most uninspired dialogue in this mess of a show. Sad! Log in to Reply doodleynoodle July 25, 2012 Love EJami. I don’t care that they’re sick that’s WHY I love them. I have a love/hate relationship with Daniel. When I first started watching Days he was conflicted about his feelings for Chelsea…again, loved the sicko aspect of it. Then he started knocking boots with her Grandma! PUKE! I have hated him with every pairing since then including Nicole, who I usually don’t mind. I don’t know if it’s those horrible bangs she’s been sporting or his greasy, hairy…everything…but they do nothing for me. On the other hand, I did like him with Carly & Melanie. Still…it’s not enough to save him. I agree Luke. They need to DaysAster his assets right out of town. Heather is so stinking funny but I totally get what you’re saying…they have really given her NO redeeming qualities so the fun will have to end sometime. I want Connie/Kate’s tenure to be stricken from the GH record never to be heard of again. Let her go to the same soap opera wasteland where “She Who Shall Not Be Named” resides. Blotted from the hearts and minds of every PC resident for now and all eternity. Log in to Reply pjc722 July 25, 2012 I don’t get the writing on Y&R with Phyllis. I love Phyllis but feel she is much more suited to be disliked and hated then loved and supported. Sure, she has 3 kids (2 biologically and one through her son which she creepily treats and talks about as her own when she is HER GRANDDAUGHTER) and one step son and step daughter. But Lucinda on ATWT was able to play the baddy with the shows SUPER HEROINE as her daughter so Maria make Phyllis a total bitch again… but a little calmer. Stafford is playing her a little to much on edge and I just don’t enjoy it. So B&B decides to finally have a story without Hope/Liam/Steffy … they didn’t even show up to the nuptials … and it’s a quickie wedding and an even quicker hit and run story. Seriously, the timing on this one is bad because we barely saw the couple together and now we’re to see them struggle to stay together?!! Missed GH on Monday but have to say that although it sounds good I just don’t get why they are writing Anna as an idiot cop like Mac. She realizes where Luke may be held and without BACK UP, without another cop(s) she goes to find him, gets knocked out, wakes up, knocks out Heather, handcuffs Heather, Heather gets out because KNUCKLE HEAD ANNA forget to listen for the click sound that indicates handcuffs are LOCKED and then Heather holds ANNA’S GUN ON HER?! Seriously, I think I was better off not getting into this show when Cartini came on board. DAYS. BLOW UP ALREADY!!!!! Log in to Reply The_Moustache July 25, 2012 Lucas loves controlling Sami and telling her what to do and who she can talk to and what what hour of the day she can go to the restroom. EJ loves & accepts Sami for who she is. thats the bottom line. Log in to Reply marybee50 July 25, 2012 Y&R-yesterday I just wanted to thow my remote at the TV when Phyllis was on. B&B-really Marcus.The person who was suppose to walk your girlfriend down the aisle is in a hospital,you put him there,and you aren’t going to tell her.Great way to start a marriage.Jump on board the Liam wagon. Days-love Sami and EJ.He really is a manipulator.Wait until Sami finds out her son has the hots for him(lol).Instead of the usual mother/daughter/guy triangle,we get mother/son/guy.

Sad![/quote] I enjoyed the Lucas character immensely during Will’s coming out to his parents but he has indeed gone a little off the rails in the last few weeks with his self-righteousness. And I was thinking the same exact thing about his dialogue; on Monday’s ep, nearly every sentence he spoke started with “Really Sami?” followed by a bunch of self-righteous grandstanding. I don’t agree with Luke that often regarding Days–particularly his fascination with Sami/Alison Sweeney–but he was right on the last podcast regarding the need for cast cuts(and it doesn’t need to stop with the already-announced folks; Gabi, Daniel and Billie are three more that need to bite it and exit pronto). The Will/EJ and Will/Marlena scenes have been carrying this show for the last three or four months at least(and I would love for Sonny to be a major factor with Will at some point very soon) to the point where every other storyline is a complete non-event involving characters that either aren’t interesting or no one cares about. Fingers crossed that Eileen Davidson’s return and this umpteenth writing change will invigorate the show again. Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon July 25, 2012 ChrisGa, I truly believe the never-ending focus on Sami is partly responsible for Days’ decline. The fact that Alison Sweeney has successful outside projects does not mean she can or should be at the center of this soap. Log in to Reply Miry July 25, 2012 I love Lumi!! And I don’t think that Lucas is being self-righteous this time, he (like ME) cannot understand why Sami is giving this guy the time of day, the same guy that is/was blackmailing their son and getting him to do criminal things (Sami of old would have fucked EJ UP!! for what he has been doing with her kid). I just don’t understand it. Log in to Reply ChrisGa July 25, 2012 [quote=SoapArmageddon]ChrisGa, I truly believe the never-ending focus on Sami is partly responsible for Days’ decline. The fact that Alison Sweeney has successful outside projects does not mean she can or should be at the center of this soap.[/quote] Lol, you won’t get any argument from me regarding Samantha Brady. At this point, Days of Sami and All Her Ex-Husbands may be the more appropriate show title. Or to paraphrase Jamey, Days of the World’s Oldest Living Teenager. I could tolerate it a little more if Sami actually possessed a single redeeming quality. Or was played by a more interesting and less one dimensional actress(I’m positive AS is a sweetheart but…well, contrary to Luke, she IS NOT AS GOOD AS JONATHAN JACKSON). And thus ends my Sami rant for the day :). Log in to Reply GaryJr July 25, 2012 I agree with Jamey. Ali is no JJ. LOL. I don’t think the show has really been all about Sami lately. If it were it might be more interesting. Sami isn’t on that much. If I have to watch Dr. Hairy & Nicole hump each other again I’ll vomit. And please tell me they didn’t allude to a Rafe/Sami pairing again with Carrie’s goodbye to Rafe. Ugh. Not again. As destructive as Sami & EJ are–they have heat, chemistry AND the kitchen sink! The fact that I think the writers are alluding to the fact that Will is in love with EJ (but probably won’t ever say it because they’re too afraid to go there) only complicates this triangle. I’m kinda loving the fact that Will & Sami are working together to free EJ when their entire family is trying to send him to jail. Dayaster better bring about death of people we don’t care about and not death to people we do (Jennifer/Jack). Write them out! Don’t blow them up! (Okay you can blow up Austin but that’s it.) Is Gabi going to get away with getting Melanie killed because Andrew is also going to die? And I hope Kristen isn’t as reformed for long. The show needs some excitement.
