Sami's Three Men




Days of Our Lives is doing everything it can to get fans to enjoy Sami (Alison Sweeney) and Rafael (Galen Gering) while Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) is off with Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) and EJ (James Scott) is having his time monopolized by Nicole (Arianne Zucker). Is it working?

I have to say i am enjoying Sami/Raf Smile and interested in seeing where the story goes.

Yea i know it is a Roman/Marlena redo but whatever its at least watchable unlike other *cough* Melanie filled *cough* parts of the show.

I admit it, I'm a Sami and EJ girl. But honestly, right now, as a Sami fan, I think Alison Sweeney just deserves better writing - period - for the character and than I'll worry about who she's with!

I will continue to shout from the rooftops that it was a mistake for DAYS to not fully explore the Lucas/Sami/EJ love triangle. But that would have required someone of talent to write it! I want Rafe in a love triange w/ Hope and Bo!

Where is Brandon Walker? Sami needs to be with him.
EJ raped her and Lucas tried to kill her so I guess I'd have to pick Rafe. But they do not have the chemistry that Deidre Hall and Wayne Northrop had in this storyline way back when. And the writing was better before too!

I grew up on Lucas and Sami, so they will always have my love. But I haven't seen the Sami I love after 2004/05.

First, they made her near crying loon during the SSK storyline. Then they tried to make her the ultimate evil during the Stan storyline. Then they tried to make her the ultimate good during the vendetta storyline.

They've nearly fubar this character. The Sami I know would have never cowtowed to the Dimeras. She would never have slept with the guy who raped her, threatened her husband, her children, and tried to kill half her family.

This is the same Sami that took fifteen years to forgive Marlena and John for their affair. The same Sami that took ten years to forgive Lucas. Yet, she forgives her rapist in less than a month? WTH!

Not only does she forgive him. She EXCUSES what he did to her!

The Sami I know would be out for vengeance. Not to heal the world. Not to destroy it. And she would definitely not wait for a guy to save her and her family.

I honestly think right now, she needs to be alone. Go after Basic Black since no one's at the helm right now.

Be the one thing she used to want to be, an independent woman.

I voted EJ and Sami I`m not a fan of Nicole and EJ because it`s so rushed and fast that anything is developed but sex chem and that`s it .

Started watching with LUMI and still love them. I don't like how Sami and Lucas have been written for in years..but I haven't given up hope that they will find their way back. That is if they don't fire Bryan Dattilo

Ari and James have great chemistry so I don't mind them together.

Can I add:

Where the hell is Will!! The boy used to be the center of her world. Now she's fine with Austin and Carrie raising him? She doesn't even talk about the kid.

WTH is wrong with Sami?!

See I'm one of these people who is a Sami fan first and foremost and then I decide which couple I like her in. I grew up on Lumi but couldn't help but recognize the chemistry Sami has with EJ. Now she seems to have chemistry with Rafe.

From a storyline perspective I think it would be sort of cool if Rafe and Sami end up being one of those couples where they are in love and he is her rock as she is battling it out with the father's of her children. What's a four way triangle? Well, whatever it is, I think it would be great to have that kind of dynamic.

Sami and EJ forever!

I'm a Sami fan first. I've never liked Sami with Lucas, because he always talks down to her and tries to "fix her". Austin was pretty much the same way. I see a lot of chemistry with Rafe, but I'm afraid he's of the "fix Sami" mold as well.

I LOVE Sami with EJ or Brandon - the only men who have ever accepted her exactly as she is. But then they both went on to sleep with her enemies.

Of them all, EJ is the best for Sami. Storyline-wise, I'd love to see Sami kick butt with the Dimera empire at her back.

I hate what Dena Higley has done to the character of Sami Brady. She was once my favourite character because she was the Anti-Brady and now she's become boring. The same goes for EJ. He's dull, boring and not worthy of being a DiMera the way he is acting with Nicole. But I will always maintain for as long as the two actors are on the show and DOOL is still on the air that Ej and Sami belong together and are the supercouple of this generation. Sami's equal will always be the real EJ DiMera, not this wussified version Dena is writing.

I still would love to see Sami and EJ. Alison and James have great chemistry plus there is lots of history between these two to reseolve and plenty of story to be told for these two.

Sami and Rafe are just silly and contrived. It is a shame that Days couldn't write a better story line for the talented Alison Sweeney to cover her maternity than this drivel.

Never liked Lucas and Sami and never will. They were boring and had a weird brother sister vibe that killed the attempt to romantically pair those two. For me, they were probably one of the most boring on screen pairings but nothing compares to the sheer nails on chalk board ickiness that is EJ and Nicole. I like both the characters but together they are truly nauseating. I don't know if its the acting or the writing but I suspect its a little of both.

I voted EJ and Sami but I think Sami is better off alone. None of the men are good enough for her at this point.

I had only been watching about a year when James Scott appeared and it was immediately clear that he and Sami clicked. And Sami affirmed her love for EJ when she refused to burn down the cabin with the help of Celeste. (Where the hell is that woman?) Although I do like EJ with Nicole, even I can tell that EJ is the only man for Sami if she wants to be herself. He is the only one who accepts her as she really is and together they could cook up some great plots. Rafe is another Lucas, though I was hoping he could see right through her. With Dena's writing she'll have him crumble.

If you only seen Sami last year, my dear you've never seen the real Sami. The real Sami could never go through with that and would have never done that. She's not a murderer like EJ, Kate, and Nicole.

It has nothing to do with love. It's her core characteristics.

The closest she's come has been stupid moves like accidently giving Victor have a heart-attack and shooting Alan in self-defense.

She is not a murderer. She is not painted in the same dark tones as those other characters.

Show me the real Sami and the real Lucas and I'll show you a couple that's meant to be together. The ultimate scheme team.

Sami and Lucas were better off as scheming FRIENDS or Enemies. When they tried to make them all lovey-dovey and cutesy, it just seemed wrong. I agree with others that say they had a weird brother/sister vibe.

Sorry after seeing EJ and Sami together, there could be no substitue. Any other pairing just looks pitiful in comparison.

But Sami and Lucas aren't supposed to be lovey-dovey and cutesy. They're supposed be... Nancy and Craig. That's them.

They're supposed to have an edge. Not all sunshine and happiness.

They killed Lucas's edge. They've made him so saintly its ridiculous. Lucas sided with Shawn over Phillip? Does that even sound like the original character? Where's the Lucas that was all for taking down the competition?

Sami is totally wimpified. She can't do anything by herself anymore. When's the last time she thought of anything other than her relationship status?

EJ and Sami look good together and have great chemistry. But in character-sense, it doesn't work for many reason. One main one, he's evil. She's not.

Sami's generally a good person. She might be the anti-Brady but she's still a Brady. The anti-hero is still a hero. Sami doesn't need to be in the dark world of the Dimeras. It would darken up her character too much, and she'd lose that walk on the line that people like to see from her.

I don't want to see her become Vivian or Kate. She should eventually become that nu Brady. That's a core family that shouldn't be ruined.

Well, when it comes right down to it it'll be Sami and EJ in the end. With Dena giving shout outs to Ejami fans and Corday giving everyone else the finger it's pretty obvious.

But they did try to make them cutesy and that's why it didn't work. It was like watching siblings make out Sick

I think EJ and Sami will be put together.

And they will either make Sami the victim and have Stephano after her and EJ must save her. Barf.

Or they will totally take Sami to the darkside. I don't want that to happen.

Or they will continue to make EJ, Mister Goodbar. Which is also bland.

Either way I lose the Sami I love. But then she's been lost for a while. Man, I used to love this character. Top three in daytime, love.

I love Sami with EJ. IMO the bickering between Sami and Rafe is very sibling like.

They are trying to make Rafe and Sami bicker to allude to sexual tension. It's totally backfiring as they both look stupid.

I agree, Sami and Lucas have such a sibling vibe that it would be more believable to have Lucas with Chelsea.

EJ and Nicole dont work because EJ left his brain in the elevator when he shot his load.

Let Lucas have Chloe. There's no magic but at least it doesn't make me want to drive pencils into my eyes.

I am a one of the biggest Sami & Lucas fan's (Lumi)...like an earlier comment this has been an 15 + yr. relationship...This is the reason I started watching Days and since lately you can't seem to catch a Sami and Lucas together I don't watch nearly as much as I once did (like only 2 times this month and maybe 1 last)...Also as stated in a previous comment I wish it somehow Lucas was the daddy to all the babies...And Sami forgiving EJ so quick was such a mistake....Sami and Lucas could be a great super couple like Bo and Hope or Marlena and John...or Alice and Tom....COME ON DAYS BRING BACK SAMI AND LUCAS....SAMI AND LUCAS 4-EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS By the way congrad to Alison on her new daughter Megan Hope
