Oh no, I hate Susan banks

Postby Freida Kloppenheimer » Thu Nov 23, 2017 1:03 pm

This may be unpopular but I really hated this storyline. One too many witch slaps, repeated conversations of "no will she's lying" and "no EJ she's lying." And the the Totally dumb "it's ok Susan you did all this and we forgive you..." Uh hello- this is Sami Brady we're talking about here!

If it wasn't so drawn out is prob be ok with it but as far as I'm concerned susan banks can kiss my butt. Thought it was way dumb, even by soap standards.

The Kristen scene was pretty cheesy too- but I don't care because KRISTEN DIMERA IS THE BEST :D :D :D

I don't like Susan Banks either, so you're not alone. Don't think she's funny, it's over the top and the teeth and makeup are so phony. But, I give heavy props to ED for her willingness to look like that and play a role that certainly isn't attractive!

Agreed about Susan. Never liked her. EJ was dealt a bad blow with her for a mother. How he managed to survive I'll never know.

The Kristen scene was weird-- she came off sounding like a bigger nutcase than Susan - she reminded me a witch, stirring her pot and proclaiming curses on everyone....I think I heard a CACKLE ---and that "pose" in that outfit??? Was she auditioning for a porn magazine or what?

As everyone kept telling Susan EJ was dead and she continued to cry that he was all she had my head wanted to explode. Sami tried to relate to her so that she could get to the truth which is why she changed her approach before Susan snapped back in to her fantasy world of leaving with EJ.

Not once did anyone try to bring her back to reality with pictures of her two grandchildren. Reminding her that EJ lives on in them and if she really missed him that much, why didn't she reach out to Marlena or John and ask about Johnny and Sydney. This whole stupid s/l of her blaming Sami for EJ's death was completely stupid considering that EJAMI were together when he died. Where was her anger over Abby having an affair with EJ causing his family to nearly collapse?

Her stalking Will with Rolf should have been written as her wanting Will to give up Sami's location so she could see her grandchildren. And when she discovered Will near death, had Rolf to revive him as pawn to be used to flush Sami out. When she realized that Will didn't know who he was, then she concocted the scheme to make him EJ so that she could later use him to pretend to be EJ and have Sami come to them. But when she grew to care for Will she decided to start over fresh and be his mother. And later she forgot she was pretending and bought into her own plot and her mental state crumbled more after they told her that Rolf was dead.

But this whole thing with her being sent to a hospital and the police never getting involved other than to arrest Sami was plain stupid.
