Uh-oh, EJ (James Scott) watches as his kingdom starts crumbling on Friday 16 June when someone slips an envelope under the door at the DiMera mansion containing photos of EJ and Abby (Kate Mansi). And that’s a problem because EJ is meant to be staying faithful to Sami (Alison Sweeney). “Seeing the pics is a shock,” says James. “Someone knows about his torrid trysts.” And as James explains, EJ isn’t sure what to do. “It’s one of those times where you feel like something is happening, but you think maybe it’s not really happening and if you look away or blink, it will go disappear.”
DIRTY LITTLE SECRET
Unfortunately for EJ, this problem isn’t going anywhere. But before anything happens, his guilty conscience plays tricks with EJ on Monday 19 June and he has a vision of Sami finding out about his cheating. Cue fantasy intro…
EJ and Sami are at the mansion discussing their wedding when Sami finds the envelope and photos. “What the hell is that? Is this someone’s idea of a joke?” she shouts. “This is a professional Photoshop job. Is this Stefano’s (Joseph Mascolo) handiwork?” One look at EJ’s guilty face gives away his secret and viewers know that hell hath no fury like a Sami scorned!
“You had sex with our babysitter!” says Sami. “She’s your little brother’s ex- girlfriend and barely out of college. What were you thinking?” And EJ’s “it meant nothing” only angers her more. “What was so irresistible? She’s young and skinny and I’m not?” Luckily for EJ, this is all in his mind. Sami slaps him and jumps on him like a crazy attacker, then she holds a razor-sharp letter opener to his chest before running out the room sobbing.
Later on Monday 19 June, EJ goes to Abby’s house and she reveals that she’s pregnant. And who’s that hot on EJ’s heels? Sami, who runs up the staircase after Abby. A staircase that Abby can be thrown over… and that’s what happens. But then Sami’s face blurs out as his vision ends and EJ is holding the photo. He has picked it up and everything that’s happened was a vision. That doesn’t mean his secret is safe – someone out there knows…
Sami finds the photo of EJ cheating. EJ’s busted locking lips with Abby!
