A DAYS character without a love interest?  Surely, you jest, lol.

If she can't exist without a man they should bring back Brandon. He's the only love interest of Sami's who didn't make me want to hit the TV. It keeps Sami and Nicole crossed without putting pairings in limbo.

The only people that really couldn't be recast on Days would be Doug, Julie, Marlena, and Maggie.  I'd say John, but RC would probably just slip Wayne in to play him and think it was clever.

Or he could perform a massive retcon and reveal that Marlena, who returned from the dead in '91, is really Samantha, and that the real Marlena is still being held captive on some island.  #ATaleof2Docs

OMG!  Could you imagine DH playing Sam, Hattie, Marlena and Mardevil on occasion?  I am sure that would work out well.  Although it is odd they didn't make more use of Deidre Hall having a real life twin and established twin on the show for years and years and killed her off so early on.

Actually, it would be "SamanDevil."

But, if you think about it: Samantha could be paired off with John, Hattie could be paired off with a returning Chris Kositchek and Marlena could be reunited with Wayne's Roman.  It's a win-win-win situation.

What more could you ask for then 3 times the Marlena and 3 times the Roman?  Sam can have Wayne's Roman.  Marlena can keep John.  Hattie and Chris K. could be happy off screen for the rest of their lives.

You know, at this point, I'm willing to explain away all this demonic possession crap as mass hallucinations brought on by ergot poisoning.

I don’t think an ultimatum is needed at all. Sami just shouldn’t have a love interest if all we’re getting are visits.

Eh, I wouldn't mind if they made Lucas and Sami have a long-distance relationship - all his other pairings have bombed and he works better as a supporting character to other people to bounce off.

Lucas is on so little that they could get away with him being paired with an off-screen Sami. It doesn't work with EJ. Now today they have EJ saying Nicole is the one he really wants. Everyone in this story just looks silly and it's all to accommodate AS bolting yet again.

LK looked stunning today. Enjoyed her scenes with Chad.

I was also surprised that I enjoyed the Nicole and EJ scenes. I've never cared for Nicole but her scenes hit home.

The rest of the show was ff material. 

Is AS no longer going to appear? Lucas and Sami left?  Is EJ and Sami story going to be left hanging?

They can have hurricane Sami waltz into town every couple of months without her leaving other characters in limbo.

I don't think it is the comings and goings that are inherently problematic. They limit what can be told but that doesn't mean nothing good can be told.

But you can't tell stories that require follow-up.

They should have had Sami kidnapped for a long while until she was ready to give the show several months for a proper resolution - the entire arc
The problem here was if they were only getting AS for two or three weeks, they should have taken that time to film scenes of Sami in captivity that they could sprinkle through the show for months to show she was still out there and keep the flame burning slowly until she had three or six months to give them for the escape and a proper end to that story.

Is Johnny not aware he is JohnDevil?

Doug wasn't aware that he was possessed by the devil and Marlena in the original story wasn't aware, so I guess not.
