EJ Shirtless. Yep, pretty sure there’s a
lot few of you who are pretty into that, no matter what the conversation. But the conversations are actually quite interesting and helping us get to where we need to go.
This clip is more about Sami’s relationship with Will, and EJ’s relationship with Will, with a dash of reality for EJ about Stefano. It’s fitting for the stage of their relationship, which is still tentative, and still in friendship stage. The important thing is the shooting is out in the open, and EJ’s getting a real clear picture of his father’s betrayal. Things are falling into place…now we just need the patience to see it play out.
There are some sweet moments and a lovely kiss on the cheek in the clip below to savor for the weekend. I actually really like these. They flow well with yesterday’s episode. As you’ll see, the friendship continues, and as the title of this post indicates, EJ’s giving Sami a bit of truth about her relationships, which isn’t a bad thing for our girl. I love that Sami continues to be the first one to bring up a possible relationship between them, then shooting it down before EJ gets a chance to – she really doesn’t think she has a chance, but I know if EJ really thought she was interested, it’d be a whole different ballgame.
This is not rushed, and frankly, I’d never want it to be. But hey, that’s just me – what do you think?

Samantha Gene. You are my favorite character, I am not ashamed to say. What are you up to girl? It seems to me that you are letting EJ back into your life and I couldn’t be more thrilled. And not only that, you are being so good to him. You’re pulling him in.
This is new. Very new. I was never really caught up in the notion that Sami would have to be the one to want him, to encourage him, to pull him. I always liked how EJ did that. How he was helpless at the sight of her. But things have shifted, he’s changed, she’s changed, the situation has changed, and I’m loving it.
He’s obviously hardened after all these years of total disappointment, just like we have. He’s learned resistance, he lives it, he doesn’t think he wants to go there again. And yet you can see that exterior shell cracking each time she opens her door to him. She surprises him a lot these days. For years, she resisted the idea of even spending time with him properly. He’s always had to make the most of his time with her, but not anymore. She wants him to stay, to get comfortable, to talk to her. He doesn’t expect her to be there for him and it’s unclear that he knows what to do with that. It’s beginning to happen in the eyes, you can see it. She’s finally beginning to figure it out. That she needs him in her life, she needs him to be okay, that they are in it together. Why resist it, when accepting it feels right?
Sami says to EJ “I haven’t seen you like this in a long time,” and it only now occurs to me that they’ve been at this for a long time. Six years. Their history is overwhelming and yet I feel like we’re finally getting started. It’s the start of something, but I’m not sure what. Maybe it’s the start of their happy ending.
If you haven’t already, go watch the clip!
EJ’s melancholy, Sami’s comforting, it’s not even romantic, but I’m in heaven – these are genuine friend moments between them. Sami is reaching out to EJ and is as open emotionally as she has ever been. A big part of the joy for me in these recent EJami scenes is the emotional development from Sami, and this episode is no different. I think the progression of their relationship needs episodes like this. And when she offers him the scotch, yeah I thought to myself “so you can’t let him leave, huh Sami?….Lucas who?” Enjoy!
