Stefan wanted answers on Days of our Lives, and he demanded Johnny give them to him. Stefan wanted to know how Johnny found out about Dr. Rolf brainwashing Stefan, and then Johnny stammered and stuttered and lied…while his dad, EJ DiMera, the person Johnny was lying for, stood by and did…nothing.

DAYS Polling

It seemed a bit surprising to us that EJ didn’t do anything to protect his son. Should EJ have stepped up for Johnny (Carson Boatman)? Here’s what you thought.

Days of our Lives EJ DiMera In the Blood

The kind of grilling Stefan (Bandon Barash) was giving Johnny is nothing for a DiMera, 27% of you dismiss. If he can’t hold his own against a still-brainwashed uncle, then Johnny has no right to call himself a DiMera. EJ was just being a good dad.

DOOL Par For the Course

What did you expect, 29% of the audience shrugs, he should have stood up for his son, but there was no way he would, considering who he is. DiMeras talk a good game about family, but when it comes down to the wire, it’s every man for himself.

What do you think? Post a comment!

EJ (Dan Feuerriegel) loves Johnny, sure. But not so much that he’d be willing to put himself at risk. What would have been gained by him baring his soul? The story is already out now…who cares who knew what when? Bygones!

Days of our Lives EJ DiMera: Coward of the County

EJ is a big, old — albeit very well dressed — chicken, according to 44% of you. He let his son accept a punishment that should have been his. He not only knew, as Kristen DiMera (Stacy Haiduk) pointed out, what Dr. Rolf (Richard Wharton) had done for months, but also he made Johnny and Wendy (Victoria Grace) lie for him, too. He hurt many more people than Johnny did. Johnny was only looking out for his dad. EJ was looking out for himself. At Johnny’s expense. How would Stefano DiMera (Joseph Mascolo) feel about that?
