I am so sick of this Sami thing! Going back and forth "Who should I marry grandma?" "It’s for my children!" Gimmee a freakin break. How much would you love it if Caroline just told Sami to grow up already and really take care of her kids by setting a proper example for them? She needs to stop running from man to man and living off of them or her mommy. How about advising her to get off her butt and get a job? She has 2 baby daddy’s and a grandma to help with the childcare. If I were Caroline I would not even entertain the whole conversation about men. That girl needs to learn some responsibility pronto!August 1, 2010 at 9:37 pm #1507053tdogsParticipant
agreement 100% with you manjeno – and have been saying it for years. Sami may be a staple on the show and we all love Alison, but the same thing over and over and over again is just too much.
I did like when Sami and EJ played the 1940’s characters a few years ago, and the Colleen/Santos characters – those were a different take on the same ol’ same ol’ will she, won’t she, but we can’t have her playing a fantasy in a fantasy forever.
But, as you so well pointed out – for a decade now Sami has been not working, having babies, running from man to man to man…Rafe is just number one on her latest hits list. If they stay together for 2 months or two years, she will have him for lunch someday, (meaning he will be the main entree) like a praying mantis.
Since Sami is such a long time and well established character – I wish the writer’s would hook her up with someone – (and I am by disclosure an EJ/Sami fan), keep them together permanently. Sami could redeem herself, by becoming someone like her mother, Marlena on the show.
For a while now I have been mad at the show for not giving us, (I’m speaking for the ladies here) strong, independent, forthright and good role models to watch.
I’ve been watching the show for nearly two decades – there used to be great women on the show. What happened writers? I don’t mind a woman slipping, (sort of like Hope has now), for a special story line, but some day soon, I would hope to see more women that are more based in reality to the female viewers of whom make up most of the fans.August 1, 2010 at 9:41 pm #15071BonbonParticipant
Why? Because it’s the character Allison plays so well and why mess with a good thing. If they change her into a responsible, caring mother/wife, what interest will we have in her? What in the world would we gripe about? Uh-uh, I don’t think it’ll happen. You may as well resign yourself that Sami will go to her grave unredeemed.August 1, 2010 at 10:20 pm #15073PattiParticipant
"Mirror, mirror on the wall….who’s the most important of all…" and she will say, to herself of course, "ME, ME, ME, you dumb bitch, and don’t you EVER forget it." (LOL).August 1, 2010 at 10:24 pm #15074majencoParticipant
I don’t expect Sami to change (although I would love it!) but I would like to see her get a good ass whuppin from straight talking grandma. I know Caroline has been acting kind of crazy lately with all this Victor/Maggie stuff, but her character has usually been pretty rational and straight forward. I just would have liked to see Sami get told she was behaving like a spoiled brat. Marlena did it once and it was great. Too bad she didn’t do it more often.August 1, 2010 at 10:39 pm #15076PattiParticipant
she did give Sami the best line of the day: "Sami, if you don’t love E.J. you gotta’ come straight out and tell him you don’t wanna’ marry him, and then, maybe, please God, we can talk about something else." (Sami eyerolls and gasps). LOL! Loved it!August 2, 2010 at 12:36 pm #15083caseyParticipant
That the Days brass doesn’t want to adult-ize Sami. That way they can continue to write her childish antics which are so much easier than fleshing out more mature characterization.
