I saw this gif on Forbidden Love: EJami Fan Forum (if you’re an EJami fan and you haven’t checked it out, you really should – Rogues hang out there all the time ) and it captures perfectly what I’m feeling right now.
I have hoped and wished for a very long time that EJ and Sami would be given a story that plays to their strengths, that showcases their considerable chemistry and truly builds towards a great romantic payoff. How I’ve longed for that. Now, since I am an EJami fan, I’m unfortunately more familiar with years of disappointment, of thinking that perhaps, if we can move on from [insert horrible storyline plot point here], then perhaps they could get to share a kiss, or a hug. My expectations had been beaten down so low, and so far, that it became more and more difficult to keep the dream alive, as it were.
Now flash-forward to 2012 – we are seeing the most amazing, pro-couple writing I’ve ever seen for EJami. I’m seeing Sami risk everything, including her life, to protect EJ and to make sure that he is able to prove his innocence. And it’s happening while EJ is still EJ – he is every shade of gray, and she loves him. All we are missing are the actual words of love – but her actions practically scream it from the rooftops. If you’ve seen our earlier blog entries, spoilers show Sami and EJ are going to have an intimate, emotional time in a hideaway soon. KISSES! As in plural! Be still my EJami lovin’ heart. Beyond the story, DAYS is also putting its best foot forward by promoting the return of the show on mainstream media sources such as TVLine and Entertainment Weekly. If you haven’t seen the promos, click on the links and check them out. Also, make sure to watch DAYS when it returns on Monday, August 13. Check your local listings.
All of this is almost overwhelming in its intensity. EJami has never been an easy couple to ‘ship, they are dark and compelling, at times heartbreaking and always intense, but they’re never easy. Because of this, it’s easier to believe in the negative, but it’s not what’s happening now. I know the instinct is to mistrust this feeling, to doubt and to worry about the next big horrible thing that can happen. But if you spend too much time worrying about that, you miss the wonderful time we’re in right now.
I don’t know this feeling….but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
