    Days Of Our Lives Poll: Obsessed.

    Wednesday, March 05 2014

    Muldoon (FayesVision/
    Addicted to love.

    Passions always run strong in Salem, with each kiss or searing gaze backed by a wealth of emotions. Of course, sometimes those emotions teeter into unhealthy territory every once in a while, with many people falling prey to obsessive love over the years.

    EJ should really compare notes with Austin about Abby’s history of latching on to inappropriate emotions and never letting go, while a few not-so-lucky ladies have been on the receiving end of Nick’s affections. In fact, just about everyone in town is guilty of a bit of crazy love at some point in time, making them act totally outrageous because of it.

    Vote in's "Days Of Our Lives" poll about who you think has been the biggest bunny boiler in Salem's history, and let us know in the comments any that we missed.

    There have been numerous sick crazy obsessive romances in Salem but...I believe the reason the Abigail/EJ relationship has drawn such negative emotionally charged reactions is the fact that this is Abigail's second attempt to go after an older man that was already married
    (1. Austin) or at least in a relationship with his soul mate (2. EJ)!! And, lest we forget EJ's brother was also a recent sex partner of Abigail's!

    This is not a criticism of the writers but I think there is an explanation of why this has drawn such negative attention.

    I am well aware that there are examples in real life when there is an older man involved with a younger girl. However, in these real life scenarios, as well as in DOOL land, the negative emotional reaction has been huge! The real life examples have happened in small town USA and large city USA as well as in Hollywood and Washington D.C.!! All of these older man with a younger girl relationships have resulted in negative reactions, destruction of families, careers ruined, lives ruined and sometimes even made national headlines!

    Sorry but I think this story line went too far. When Samantha leaves DOOL I may no longer watch and I have watched since the beginning.

    DOOL story lines have become more of a Jerry Springer type of show with everybody having sex with one another, brothers, etc. The only difference between the two TV shows is that the Salemites are fictional, rich, seemingly well educated, and articulate (due to the writers I assume). Whereas the Jerry Springer guests are....well the opposite!

    I hope there is some way for DOOL to turn this story line around to their advantage and get their viewership back.

    I was also appalled with Kristen's seduction of a priest! That was the second most low class story line that someone must have thought was a good idea.

    I never thought I would see the day when DOOL had sunk this low! So sad.

    So, that is why I think that there is such a negative reaction to the EJ/Abigail sexual relationship. This has pushed the boundaries. Viewers like myself are not pleased with the producers/writers of DOOL choice to go in this direction and while it may boost ratings presently, I believe it will take a negative toll on DOOL viewership.
