Viewers understand that there used to be a Days Of Our Lives before the birth (and SORAS) of Samantha Gene Brady.
But who wants to dwell on those dark days when fans were merely entertained by the super-couplings of Doug (Bill Hayes) and Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) — and the Time Magazine cover they earned? Plus, there was also Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo (Peter Reckell), Steve (Stephan Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), and Marlena and Roman (then-Wayne Northrop) and/or John (Drake Hogysten).
As soon as Sami (Allison Sweeney) kidnapped her baby sister, Belle, and tried to sell her on the black market, a new force swept into Salem. And it’s barely let go since, even if Sami is usually off the canvas.
But wouldn’t her son, Will’s (Chandler Massey), threatened death be the perfect vehicle to bring her back –for good this time? Here’s what almost 15000 of you had to say about the possibility:
Home For Good
We know Sami will come back for Will’s wedding to Sonny (Freddie Smith) – and his latest death. And 82% of the audience would like her to stay put once she does. Doesn’t Sami want to be there for Ari? She’s been with EJ for months now. Isn’t that enough?
Don’t her other family members deserve equal billing? Rafe (Galen Gering) flew all the way to Italy to help deal with a rebellious Johnny. Wouldn’t it be easier if Johnny, and Allie, too, moved back to Salem with their Mama?
It’s about time to age these twins, the way Sami and Eric (Greg Vaughan) were once aged. And then maybe Sami can get some of her own back. While Marlena stands by — and smirks.
Keep Your Distance
Sami eats shows, 18% of you counter. Whenever she’s on, nobody else gets the chance to breathe. She needs to keep nursing EJ. And give someone else the chance to shine.
