Two scoops and tumblr are enjoying the REAL Samantha Brady.
@iamJohnAL: Yeah. Sami Brady is Sami Brady. Nothing's gonna change. Loved watching this #EJAMI scene! #DAYS t.co/vVFIlPYBZX
Actually, this storyline is all-encompassing, if you think about it. There's hardly a character that isn't involved somehow, directly or indirectly. That's rather brilliant. Even characters like Abe, Kayla, and Roman have been dusted off and trotted out for show. Of course, Justin being front and center is amazing! I've been crusading for more Wally Kurth screen-time for a very, very long time. Well played, writers. Well played.
And to make things even more delicious, this storyline is like Wrestlemania. Years' worth of storylines are coming together for an epic showdown. Will shooting E.J. is being revisited again. E.J.'s coop is there. It has a peppering of the DiMera/Brady Vendetta. Heck, even Rafe's attack and those characters are being looped in. Aside from poor, ill-treated, and neglected Jeannie-Theresa, I can't think of a character who's not involved in some way, shape, or form.
Of course, at the core, this storyline is focusing on Sami and Will's misdeeds. Everyone else is either supporting one or both of them -- or scowling at them. That includes Melinda Trask, who's a total beyoitch on wheels. I kind of like her. She's very direct and no-nonsense. Sure, D.A. Woods would have been an interesting choice for the part of a Sami lynch mob ringleader, considering his love for all things DiMera-related, but I'll give Melinda a chance. I'm actually afraid not to. She's a bit scary.
So, Sami and Will! Alison Sweeney and Chandler Massey are hitting this out of the park. They're at the wheel. Things will continue to be amazing. I have no doubts. Their characters, on the other hand, well, that's a different story.
There's only a narrow chance this can play out without all of Sami, Will, and company's secrets spilling out. In fact, some of them have already spilled. Will told Justin about shooting E.J. Yes, please! This ensures Justin will continue to be on-screen, among other things. Oh, and a very scary, determined E.J. promised to get things done the way he used to. Yes, this is going to be legendary.
My biggest concern, however, is that this storyline does have a few flaws. Mainly, the assassination of Adrienne's true character. Is watching such a huge storyline worth that? I'm teetering on this one. I do know that I'm enjoying the drama. I'm loving the performances! And can't wait to see what happens next. Plus, it's making Sami happy. She got to be the center of attention, after all.
