Days of Our Lives: Two-faced Two Step


Take out your umbrellas because fire and brimstone is about to be rained down. First it was Lucas (Bryan Datillo) last week browbeating Sami for doing what he told her to do, move on, now its Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) own parents.

What had me yelling right back at the TV screen today was the conversation between Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Roman (Josh Taylor) discussing Sami being caught literally sweating up the sheets with EJ (James Scott) by Lucas. The girl can’t catch a break for goodness sakes!

I am getting sick and tired of her getting flack tossed her way for living her life from everyone that claims to love her. If that constitutes love then I sure as hell don’t want any part of that hot mess!

Dr. Judgmental Jezebel Evans and Chief Condescending Brady make the mind boggle with  their attitude regarding Lucas/Sami/EJ love triangle. How can THEY of all people be judgmental when Sami was married to EJ when she did what she did, is over 18 the last time I checked (although this is Salem where kids are SORAS’d faster than the seasons changes.) and was told by Lucas to move on?

Marlena cheated on Roman with John and Roman… The man consorts with the woman that has vowed to make his OWN CHILD’s life a living hell... KATE! Didn’t Roman just provoke John into an altercation in order to take him into lockup? Wasn’t it Marlena that injected Stefano with the sedative that has him in the coma? Before that she shot him!

It just kills me on how Sami’s parents are raking her over the coals for doing something totall legaly (as far as we could see) in the confines of her own bed. If I’m not mistaken, she sacrificed her own happiness to secure the well being of her family since we all know Salem’s finest can’t do so and that’s not saying much considering half of her family’s on the force.

I know one thing, if it were my mom and she heard what went down the only thing she’d say to me is, “Girl why the hell didn’t you LOCK the door!?” I am damn frustrated with Samantha Jean’s parents throwing her under the bus all the while she appeases their every whim.

This is the same girl that fought tooth and nail to save her parents marriage by putting Belle up for adoption on the black market. You would expect some loyalty coming from them. As screwed up as her logic was her heart was in the right place.

I’m just waiting for the day that Sami decides to say, “SCREW YOU BOTH! It’s my life,” Roman and Marlena have the nerve to ask what’s wrong with Sami. What was so wrong with her getting all of her pent up frustrations out in a constructive way?

It was either that way or Sami pulling a classic Sami maneuver. I think RomMar are just mad that Sami’s getting some action and all they are getting is carpal tunnel from all the mass…. Mass typing they do for their journals, what were you people thinking? Sami’s an adult who is married to EJ. Instead of scolding her why don’t her parents just try to support her? That way she doesn’t have to pull a, “Sami,” on anyone.

Days of Our Lives: The Return of Captain Smug

 Daddy's (unfortunately) home. Let the righteous posturing and Sami croc tears commence, Lucas (Bryan Datillo) is back! What a horrible, hideous way to interrupt the liquid hot and very consentual sex that was taking place between Sami (Alison Sweeney) and EJ (James Scott), than to have her sanctimonious, shrieking, jerk of a "one true love" show up at the DiMera mansion before EJ could properly give Sami that fabled second O...see I was talking about a second helping of Oreo cookies. Get your mind out of the gutter!  

I am so cotton-picking sick and tired of Lucas Roberts Horton possibly DiMera, possibly Vitale, possibly the son of the Milk Man, the Paper Boy and Danny Tanner from Full House! I never thought it was be possible for me to find a character more smug and condescending to a woman he claims to love than Josh Lewis  on Guiding Light. But at least the whole Madonna/Whore thing has always been part of Josh and Reva's mythology. Reva never thought she was good enough for Josh and although he loved taking her to bed, trusting her as his wife was never possible. What's that saying about trying to turn a whore into a housewife? Back to Lucas, what makes his constant berating of Sami so infuriating is that he's just like her! Yet one day he decided to climb up on a peak just outside of Green Mountain Lodge and forever look down his nose in judgement of Sami, that is when he isn't trying to jump her bones!

I really hope TPTB follow the chemistry, not to mention the resurgence of Sami's true character and nature that takes place when she's with EJ. I wanted to throw an apple at my screen when Lucas barked at Sami like she was a dog to go get HIS daughter. Okay, so it was a Hershey bar, big deal, I start low carb tomorrow. Honest.  Bryan Datillo is awesome as Lucas and I am glad to have him back on my screen, but not, I repeat, not with Sami. They work great as mortal enemies, just as long as Sami is giving it just as good as she gets, but as a couple they have never worked. Why not try Lucas out with Ava or Morgan? Sami would hate having another woman in her kid's life and this would cause rich conflict that keeps them tied together, but not in this tired, forced romance.

Samantha Jean Brady  is not some whimpering willow, desperately in need of love and affirmation from the likes of Lucas Horton. The creep told her to move on, so she did. And from the looks of things, she damn enjoyed it!

Days of Our Lives: Lucas Gets Out Of Prison And Sami Kisses EJ; Who Should Sami End Up With?

Expect the return of Lucas Roberts Horton (Bryan Datillo) to be an explosive one on Days of Our Lives. Our pal Nelson Branco got the dish from Sami Brady herself Alison Sweeney, who says this "classic" return will be some of the best Days stuff she's been involved in since joining the show! Considering all of the amazing ups and downs Sweeney has been apart of during her decade and a half on the show, this return is sure to be can't miss, especially with Sami kissing EJ (James Scott) in the throes of a jealous fit this week. With Lucas returning, just as Sami's feelings for EJ begin to heat up, the question is, who should the spirited blonde end up with?
