10 Best Soap Opera Couples of 2013
No. 1: EJ and Sami, Days of Our Lives
Margaret Mitchell's estate should ask Alexandra Ripley to return the money they paid her to write a sequel to Gone With The Wind. Oh, don't get us wrong. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara's epic love affair lives on—only not in the pages of that tired Scarlett—five-days-a-week on NBC's Days of Our Lives!
Scheming, petulant, gossipy, vicious girl-woman Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) still thinks she's every bit the Belle of the Salem Ball. The only man strong enough to tame her is one as roguish, black-hearted, calculating, cruel and sexually brazen as she is — EJ DiMera (James Scott). Only if he isn't careful, he'll be the one to be tamed!
In 2013, TPTB finally wised up and stopped scripting scenarios where Sami and EJ did violent things to one another and had them turn those particular talents on the rest of Salem. For one another, EJami only had all-consuming love this past year and we couldn't get enough of it.
Whether it was covering up a pesky murder or taking on the Phoenix (Joe Mascolo) himself, EJami had one another's backs, fronts, sides and other places we can't mention on a family friendly blog.
