True love

Ste­fano forces Sami and EJ to give up their free­dom for each other.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - DAYS -

If love is about sac­ri­fice, then the most ro­man­tic thing that EJ (James Scott) has done was to go down on his knees, take his fa­ther Ste­fano’s (Joseph Mas­colo) hand and kiss his ring on Fri­day 18 Novem­ber, swear­ing to obey the DiMera crime­boss’s ev­ery whim if Ste­fano saved EJ’s fi­ancée Sami (Ali­son Sweeney) from go­ing to jail. So Ste­fano waved his hand, granted EJ’s wish and the case against Sami fell apart on Tues­day 22 Novem­ber. But when Sami finds out what her free­dom has cost, will she take the kids and flee Salem?

SAMI KNOWS THE SE­CRET

On Fri­day 25 Novem­ber, Sami and EJ’s post-prison “hon­ey­moon” is over when Ste­fano re­minds EJ that he needs to keep up his end of their deal and get all the DiMeras liv­ing un­der one roof. EJ’s brother Chad (Casey Dei­drick) is easy, but Sami… not so much. For one thing, Ste­fano nearly got her sent to prison for a long, long time. On Thurs­day 1 De­cem­ber, be­fore EJ can break the news gen­tly, Sami catches Ste­fano re­plac­ing her and EJ’s por­trait with his own at the DiMera man­sion. Sur­prise! Forced to own up to what he had to give Ste­fano to save her, EJ ad­mits to Sami, “I gave him back ev­ery­thing.”

SAMI’S SAC­RI­FICE

On Fri­day 2 De­cem­ber, Sami asks EJ to take the kids and run away with her. But all that EJ can say is, “I gave him my word as a DiMera.” EJ thinks that he’s lost Sami for good af­ter she storms out, but on Mon­day 5 De­cem­ber she comes back and tells her fi­ancé, “I am so em­bar­rassed for walk­ing out on you, EJ. I’m not gonna let you live there with­out me. You fought so hard for so long to get out from un­der Ste­fano and you did it. You won. And then you just gave it all up for me. How could I walk away from you when you did that for me? You went to hell for me. And I’m not gonna leave you alone in it!” Big sac­ri­fices all round. We’re not cry­ing, Days fans, it’s just so dusty in that old DiMera man­sion…
