Quote bearrie: I don't know if "Marlena has always favored Carrie". I seriously doubt that's true. I was over the moon when Marlena said that she would not forgive Sami and that she could not look at her. Go MOM!! :-) It seems to me that if no one else, Mom always has that ability to whack some sense of shame into their child. Lord KNOWS Sami needs that good shove, and maybe her mom and dad NOT forgiving her for this latest fiasco would be just the thing for Sami. This and EJ. Having EJ watch Sami attempting to be good might work some magic on him and cause him to falter in his vendetta. Sami, while helping EJ get over his anger towards her family would see just how miserable it is always trying to bring misery to people. Sami and EJ could bring out the better of each other. :D :-) :)
So why is it then Marlena never whacked sense into Belle or Carrie, she was rude for a time to Brady- but come on do we really believe this could be good for EJ, he is a Dimera after all- I am thinking if any Dimera is good, it will be Benjy, and I hope they let him battle the evil that the Dimera family has always represented. And, by the way, Sami has had plenty of shoves, just not positive ones.
Oh, it is fine for a mum to show tough love, but show it equally, they all deserve it if any, and Marlena really isn't always the best example herself.
