Days of Our Lives Exclusive, Explosive First Look: Sami and EJ Rumble in the Rubble!

Days of Our Lives fans, your patience soon will be rewarded.

While those who love ABC or CBS soaps never have to take a long break in the middle of a good storyline, the Olympics paused the NBC sudser for weeks at a time this summer.

But the long-running daytime drama returns on Monday and, as you’ll see in this exclusive sneak peek, Days is more than rewarding its faithful followers for their patience.

She wants him to flee to prove his innocence in Stefano’s death, but he wants to help those in need — and that’s just the beginning of the drama-packed week! Hit the comments with your predictions of who’ll weather the Daysaster just fine and whose world is about to be blown to bits!

      • The actor is moving his family to a simpler life – needs a break and wants to be around for his daughter’s life more. he’ll come back at some point in the future, once she becomes a teen and no longer wants her dad cramping her style :) lol

        • I can’t blame him for wanting to be around his daughter more, time flies and suddenly they’re gone and it’s too late.
          I wonder how they’re going to write him out or will he still be in town,, just not seen?

    • I’m glad Madison is gone. Too bad Ian didn’t go with her. I’m gonna cry for Bo but at least we still have EJ, Sami, Nichole, and countless others.

      • Ej and Sami NEED to hook up, it is time, this soap made everything to put them apart whereas they are meant to be together, they could be the most powerful couple on this soap if the writers write for them to be together : IT IS TIME !

        • I think that sami should not get together because he caused alot of grief between her and her family i think she should leave him alone and get with lucas because they are better for each other.

    • I dont believe Stefano is dead also.
      I cant believe all of those people are leaving

      • I had seen a video clip of Eilene Davidson being interviewed and she is coming back as Kristin. She better be back as Susan too. She was asked if she was going to be Susan also and she played off like she had no idea. I hope she does. I don’t think anyone else could play her but I could be wrong.

    • EJAMI is awesome and this episode rocks. No matter what anyone says, they can’t “unwrite” the fact that EJ risked his life to save Sami, and she was willing to die so that EJ could be with the kids. EJAMI is here!!!! Love it, and I will continue to watch.

    Comment by ABC – August 10, 2012 01:30 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • 6 years of James Scott does not make him a “newbie”. Not when he’s been there day in and day out. Also, its about time that EJAMI get together with Sami finally(!) admitting she loves the guy so they can be a FAMILY together. Sheesh. Everyone else gets to have a marriage, a family, and no drama but Sami? She gets 3 guys – one who loves her so much she needs 2 others to hide behind. Will is grown. Lucas isn’t needed and that love is gone, Sami’s using him. She always has! As for Rafe – same story. Lucas wasn’t there, EJ was and wanted her, Sami doesn’t think she’s good enough for love so she takes left overs and 2nd bests. End the agony of Salem’s men. Find some good women for Rafe and Lucas, and Put EJAMI together. Come on! everyone sees it. everyone knows it. Ali Sweeney and James Scott are the hardest working actors on the set IMO. They drive the actions of everyone else. Without them and their characters at this point in time, there’d be no show. Stop living in the past.

      Comment by Morgan – August 10, 2012 11:36 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I so totally agree with you. Those two are the reason I watch Days!!!!!! I am getting sick of the writers getting our hopes up high for a reunion between those two and BAMM nothing happens, that is not fair. Sami and EJ have a chemistry that noone will ever be able to have no matter how many men they put her with. Let her be with EJ and let them be happy.

    • Haven’t watched this in forever sounds like nothing has changed except that in reading about Sami and EJ I feel like the only difference in some respects between them and that couple from Twilight saga is, well not much. Both like to drain the life out of things and viewers get to a point where we just don’t care. Wonder where EJ keeps his famgs…

    • You can’t deny their chemistry though, ultimately neither will be truly happy…unless they are driving the other one crazy and challenging them that is.

      • Neither will be happy until they finally get together. I’ve noticed they only seem to hurt each other when their in relationships with other people. Like Lexie said, if they stopped trying to kill each other they could be happier than they’ve ever been.

      I am hoping for EJ & Sami to ACTUALLY get a real chance!

  • I am thankful Days is back on Monday…I wish Gabi becomes a casuality, sorry to the actress and her fans but she doesn’t fit in and is much too needy a character for us long time fans to accept as someone who deserves so much airtime!!

    With that said, I wish they’d put Billie Reed out of her misery too – she and the original Austin are so underwhelming and BORING on show now. I am hoping Sami & Lucas get that playful banter back that they had when he first returned. I am a HUGE fan of James Scott (EJ) and want to finally see him happy, he’s done some bad things but who hasn’t in Salem?!
    P.S. Stefano is not dead…he always rises from the ashes :)
    P.P.S. Goodbye Ian, Madison, Carrie, Austin, Jack & Melanie – Jack, Melanie & Carrie will be the only one missed.
    Yes Bo is leaving too, but Peter Reckel is leaving of his own free will and I personally think Bo & Hope have run their course!

    Comment by Belle – August 10, 2012 01:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    • If there is a movie made of the book Fifty Shades of Grey I think hands down that James Scott (EJ) should play Christian Grey. While reading the book I kept picturing EJ in the role. He would be great.

      • Obviously you like James Scott and so do I, however in no way, shape, manner or form would I want James Scott lowering himself to play Christian Grey. I think JS has too much respect for women to play that role. Its your fantasy though so enjoy! :)

        • I agree, I think John is EJ’s Dad because wasn’t John married to Kristen and crazy Susan (who is EJ’s Mom) faked her identity to pose as Kristen to be with John?? I can’t remember exactly because it was sooo long ago,. but it could be possible. So EJ may still be a Dimera!
          I wish Carrie would stay & get together with Rafe.
          Poor Brady, he is never happy!!! (if Madison dies)
          I was thinking Stefano was in protective custody with the Feds because of doing under cover jobs & maybe they “faked” his death & put him in hiding?
          I don’t want Mel to leave.. I love her!
          Gabby HAS TO GO, can’t stand her “no body loves me” bull.
          Jack & Jenn are so boring.
          Hope Nikki & Daniel make it, but I have a feeling she may loose the baby?

      • I know, saw the video but I don’t think there’s a love connection for awhile yet. Apparently (SPOILER, STOP READING IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW)…………sonny get’s bullied and he takes a dark turn.

        • Hey where did you read that SPOILER…sonny will take a dark turn…I read spoilers anywhere and everywhere and I missed that one haha…probably with “T” coming back on the show its the start of the bullying?

          Comment by Cyn Cromarty – August 10, 2012 02:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Yes, T is a bully and goes after Sonny because he “made” Will gay. At least that’s my understanding. It causes Sonny to relive the days before he came out, etc. I’m hoping that this turn of events is the beginning of Wilson, hee :-)

  • I’m not necessarily sad about some of the departures from Days – in spite of the time some of them have been on. I only wish Bo would take Hope with him – she is so corny and fake that I hate watching her almost as much as I hate hearing her mother Julie sing off key all the time. I was never an Austin fan – too gay and fake for me – should never have been a love interest or husband (yuk) for Carrie. Billie Reed…sayonara already…she is really awful and hard to watch because her face really does scare me – looks like a mask. I will miss Carrie – wish she was coming back. Ian….I can’t even think about his character because he is so….ugh….just awful to watch.A love interest for Kate???? and even worse Madison’s husband?? come on writers! What’s happening with Days? I wish they would find new blood and stop having the characters always winding up with each other instead of finding new partners. It really is incestuous.It alost seems like the good actors – the ones we want to stay – get sick of the drama and sad writing and just leave. I HATE seeing Melanie leave…she was really terrific and I wish her much luck in her new endeavors! Can’t wait till Monday!

    • I agree with almost all of this post, but Julie is not Hope’s mother…her mother died and dad remarried Julie. The original Austin is not as handsome as the Austin that originally replaced him and that’s why Carrie is so ready to rid him from her life. She gave up everything to be with him back in the day and then they brought back the old Austin and the love connection with his return was lost. Ian…seriously, this is an Erica Kane husband No. 1000+ and his character sucks. Kate..seriously, who would love her? NOBODY…She a horrible skank!!! The only persons who truly could love her are her grandchildren and the ever loving Lucas…who is also so naive to her wicked ways!!

      • Hope and Julie share the same Mother. Doug is Hopes Father and Julie is her much older sister. Addie is Alices & Tom’s daughter and died of cancer when Hope was a baby and Julie was a teenager. After several years Doug married Julie.

    • The only two I will miss are Melanie and Jack. Except they weren’t writing for Jack. Molly Burnett is young and I don’t think she’ll mind moving on to other things. Sh is so talented. I have a feeling we’ll be watching her somewhere for years to come.

    • Sorry Judy, Julie is not Hope’s mother but her sister. Doug had an affair with Julie when he was married to Hope’s mother Addie. Addie died and Doug married Julie. I have been watching since about 1966..watched with my mother …Will be sad to see Peter Rekell gone..Love Bo!!

  • Ej and Sami are so overdone. I’m tired of them too and could care less if they ‘rumble’ anywhere. I’d like to see Days bring the heat with couples more appealing and those who haven’t the history of abusive behavior those two have heaped on each other. Days used to be known for their romantic super couples and epic romances. New writers are coming in after this Daysaster so hopefully they can bring back some fun sexy sparks and compelling twists for couples we can really care about to keep viewers tuned in. With Stefano returning shortly they also need to ramp up their scheming villains (Stefano, Ej, Nicole, Kate, Victor) and make the show must see again.

    The Daysaster is fun in that the special effects are amazing and it’s exciting to see the whole cast involved while we guess who might suffer a fatality, but the character stories have been lacking, so big time change needs to occur after this event.

    Comment by Cassidy – August 10, 2012 02:16 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Disagree : Ej and Sami are not ‘old’ they never got a real chance to begin !!!!
      Also they are grey characters who could make an unique couple of two grey characters together with lot’s of conflicts, romance, family time, storylines, the black and white characterisation of soap characters doesn’t interest majority of viewers now, they need grey complex characters who can be good and bad like in prime time soaps who are great success with the audience (Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Revenge, Dallas ect..)

  • James Scott and Ali Sweeney always give 100% and never let their fans down. I just watched (Canada) as EJ struggled with all his strength to save Sami from certain injury or death. Those strenuous and very physical scenes had to be quite difficult. I love the fact that EJAMI are actually on the same page and working together at long last! The blinders have FINALLY fallen from Sami’s eyes and she obviously no longer CARES what Roman, Rafe, Lucas or anyone else in Salem thinks! Hallelujah!!

    Comment by Cookala – August 10, 2012 02:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I love how EJ and Sami are finally putting each other ahead of themselves. They are both growing and realizing they have made mistakes. It’s refreshing seeing them having each other’s back .Instead of at each other’s throats.James and Ali always bring their A-game wheither Ejami is loving or fighting!!! The natural chemistry and talent these actors display is why I love Ejmai so much!!! And it’s about time Samantha quits worry about what anyone thinks including her ex’s!!!! Bring on the Ejami goodness!!! I can’t wait!!!

    Really looking forward to the Daniel and Nicole scenes too. Those two are cute together. He’s way better for her than EJ IMO.

  • Jack and Madison will die.

    I feel sorry for Matt Ashford. The writers couldn’t come up with a good storyline for him. And many longtime fans wanted Jack and Jen to get back together. By killing him off, it makes her romance with Daniel more palatable. So here comes a Daniel-Nicole-Jen triangle.

    Sarah Brown is a great actress. A shame DAYS squandered her talent. They started with a strong, confident character and turned her into a sniveling mess.

    I’m sorry that Peter Reckell is leaving the show, but it’s understandable. I wonder how they will write him off and what the future holds for Hope since Kristen Alfonso just signed a new contract.

    I’m glad the Ian character is on his way out. What a yucky character. That Kate hooked up with him is unbelievable. Kate is smarter and better than that.

    There seems to be rumours that Sami and Rafe aren’t ‘done’ as a couple. So now we’ll have 3 men competing for her? Really?

    Looking forward to Eric finally coming back to Salem and Kristin, too.

    I hope next Monday is worth the hype and that they don’t drag this ‘day’ out for weeks and weeks. (Remember Marlena’s return and the pink sweatsuit(?)?

    New writers, please wow us, entertain us, and bring back some of the fun from DAYS gone bye. (Eugene and Calliope or whomever).

Its really the next step in their evolution as characters and I’m SO excited to see them move away from all the negative writing they were given in the past. They have always had that IT factor and honsestly as a soap watcher for 25 years and a Days watcher for 20 – I think they could be the next “Luke & Laura” if they see this through!! Bravo and I cannot wait to keep watching and see how this adventure/disaster scenario unfolds for all the characters of Days!!

  • who is “T” and who is “Wilson”? I’d like to see Will and Sonny but I saw a clip that Will was surprised Sonny kissed him. Hopefully he’ll come around though. Sorry to see Jack go and Bo. I like Bo and Hope but maybe because they’ve been together so long. Would love to see lots of the “older” Salemites come back. Just need good stories. If Stefano is not EJ’s father who is? Why didn’t Alice say in her letter? Wish Tony could come back, maybe he didn’t really die! Can’t wait till Monday. DVR is all primed and ready since I have an appointment.

  • i think it will be Abe that goes and not Roman if they are getting rid of old ones. Although, Abe and Kayla would be a good match. Mixing it up. I think they should keep Kate, she keeps things interesting although she is a villan. Sure Stephano will be back, the Phoenix always rises! Keep EJ, Sami, Daniel. Let Jen and Daniel get together.. Thats the happiest I have ever seen her. When she is with Jack she is always looking down in the mouth. Don’t let Daniel and Nicole be together. Ian must go. i didn’t like Madison with Brady. Put him and NIcole back together. They suit each other.Jack needs to go. Keep Melanie. Let Gaby go. Put Carrie and Rafe together. Let him go on assignment and bring her back. Billie and Austin are to go. I hate to see Bo go but he will be back. Hope is nothing. He acted more in love with the doctor than hope. You could see fireworks but not with Hope. I’ve been with Days since the beginning. .Keep Will and friends.

    • Interesting thoughts. Kayla and Abe? Kate should stay. We all know Stefano will be back. I liked Dan and Jen together was sorry they didn’t make it. Don’t like Niccole and Dan. Yeah, Brady and Niccole would be good. I wish Melanie would stay I like her. Gabby can go. Also been watching since beginning. We hardly ever see Kayla’s mother anymore so maybe she will be going. Bring some older ones back. Haven’t seen Sami’s brother is like for-ever. Was never really a fan of Carley(?) Melanie’s mother. Maybe it’s just that particular actress. How is Bo departing? Can’t be dying if he is coming back some day.

  • Go Ejami! I’m so sad Jack is leaving. I don’t care if he’s with Jennifer or not, he’s more interesting. I don’t understand why they’ve kept Roman all these years. He’s painful to watch and boring. Same with Dan and Dannifer. I wish they’d give they younger folks more interesting exciting stories, like Ejami on the run. Replace Rafe and Brady with exciting heroic types. Rafe’s is so bland although I did like him better with Carrie. Bradison was so forced it had no impact at all, aside from making me FF. I want young folks I can root for like the 80s and 90s, not interchangeable couples.
