Toxic tube.

EJ and Sami are once again boss and employee, working closely side by side. Their latest campaign for Countess Wilhelmina Cosmetics is a lipstick called “Proof.” It is a dual campaign for EJ as he relishes the contact and works to reclaim his precious Samanther in the hopes of bringing his family together again.

While “Proof” may bring EJ and Sami together this time, it wasn’t too long ago that another shade of lipstick gave Sami the power to drive EJ away.

Always suspicious, EJ was seeking a different kind of proof from Sami when he discovered she was possibly carrying the next DiMera heir. He wanted proof of her supposed devotion and set some near-to-impossible conditions for her to meet.

First, she had to give up Lucas within 24 hours, meet EJ at an abandoned cabin at precisely 9:00 PM and prepare to run away to Las Vegas to get married. If she failed, EJ would threaten to tell Lucas that they had sex in exchange for EJ’s help in lifting a beam that fell on an unconscious Lucas when the roof of the abandoned cabin caved in during Sami and Lucas’ attempted ski getaway.

Pregnant, desperate and unwilling to comply with EJ and tell her loving fiancé Lucas that the baby she was carrying was not his, Sami called Celeste – EJ’s father’s mistress, who had given her a toxic lipstick to seduce EJ with so that Sami could be rid of him once and for all. So with Celeste urging her on, Sami puckered up and got ready to plant her knockout kiss.
