I am sad, it's ridiculous really, because it's just a character but I just can't imagine Days without EJ!No matter what woman he was with, he was still mezmorizing and so much beter than the insipid actors your see on TV and the movies today. I completely understand the timing is perfect for him to exit, I do. I don't think it had a thing to do with the Abiail story, just that Aly was leaving and he'd been doing it for so long, it was time to try something else. What a grind to be so frontburner for 8 years, it's a lot of work! He can afford to travel and audition which he probably had no time for before. But I just am so sad that he's going. And so disappointed that we won't see that sizzling Ejabby chemistry again. Ben, no matter who plays him, can't hold a candle to EJ Dimera.
