Sami and Lucas may be headed for Splitsville rather than a wedding.

Days of Our Lives’ Lucas is thisclose to getting what he wants: a wedding band on Sami’s finger and the future about which he’s long dreamed. There are just a couple of teensy problems.

Maybe “teensy” is the wrong word and “massive” is closer to the truth.

1. If Sami finds out that he, not EJ, kidnapped her, it’s game over. And 2. Sami’s feelings for EJ may have changed, but they’ve anything but disappeared. So after she and Lucas return to Salem and get engaged, it’s hardly a sure bet that they’ll make it to the altar, much less all the way to “I do,” headwriter Ron Carlivati tells Soap Opera Digest.

At the same time, Belle files for a legal separation from Shawn. Though the move may have as much to do with Jan as anything, “he takes it as her not [being] willing to fight for their marriage,” the scribe says. Shawn also suspects that his wife is “looking for a technicality to be separated to allow her to become closer to EJ, which we will have to wonder if that at all is what’s subconsciously driving Belle.

“And that is all happening simultaneously to Sami’s return and her impending wedding to Lucas,” he adds, “so both of those stories are on a collision course.”
