“I'd like Sami and Lucas to have some time alone.” As if it’s any of your business, Marlena.
“Because it was the right thing to do, Marlena. The same reason that I told you why John was alive” and “No ulterior motives.” Oh, Evil EJ plays the game so well!
“I was wondering if you were happy that Lucas walked in on you and Sami in bed.” Of course he wasn’t. Dude, EJ wanted to cuddle and fall asleep together. He was enraged-that’s why he threw the pillow!

“The funny thing is Sami and Lucas have always somehow found their way back together.” It’s almost as if someone wrote it that way, isn’t it?
“Well, let me ask you this-would you ever consider giving up on John?”
“No, I wouldn't.”
“Okay. Then I'm not giving up on Samantha, either.” Exactly. My loathing aside, John and Marlena was an unexpected couple and not a planned pairing; that’s why he was initially Roman for a while and then John was with Isabella. Now in our case EJ was always supposed to be the Stefano to Lumi’s J&M, but the end result is the same. In both cases, the better man broke the original set in stone pairing.
“Marlena, I have no intention of, uh...interfering, if that's what you're talking about. I would like Samantha to choose me, but I would like her to do it of her own free will.” Yup. Now you’re going to manipulate everything else around her and influence her free will, but it will be Sami’s decision.

If you pause the show and read the screen, there’s actually an entire story about how E.J. Wells also known as E.J. Wells DiMera also known as Elvis J. DiMera was indicted for fraud. Thank you, Days. I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who cares that you bothered to write all that and remember that EJ was using a different last time at the time, but I appreciate the extra attention to detail.

“What did she do now?” and “Sleeping with EJ, not your best move, Sami.” This along with Marlena not believing EJ can make Sami happy just proves Roman and Marlena are the absolute worst parents ever. Did either of you two ever think that maybe Sami is so insecure because all you two do is treat her like an incompetent thirteen year old girl? It’s a self-fulfilling prophesy.

“I can’t believe we’re going to be living in EJ’s apartment now. Remember last May when I broke down the door with a power drill?”
“Yeah, that was good times, sweetness. Speaking of Squire, I think he left some of his stuff here. I found this box, and I thought there was a bunch of papers inside, but now that I look at it, I think it’s actually a bunch of cards-AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

Grade: B-. I’m glad EJ didn’t back down with Marlena, and watching S&K live in EJ’s old apartment is unintentionally hilarious. He has to come visit them.


  1. Believe it or not, this is what I missed most, well, OK, 3rd most, as I was going "It's going to be HOW long before we get internet again?" on a daily basis to my husband.
    I love that you took the time to check out the article - I wanted to, but am still unpacking. I never saw S&K living in EJ's apt as that funny until you pointed it out - weird, yes. I almost hope he finds a hidden card somewhere now!
    I was going to backwards search the Ejami thread at Sony for these, but I found your link (& realized that I had bookmarked it and forgot) so now I'll just work thru your page. Thanks for making your page!

  2. You're welcome, and I hope EJ left a few tarot cards lying around as well in order to give Steve a little pick me up.
