I have not liked the way Sami has been written for a while, but I am beginning to feel sorry for her. This Rafe 2 storyline is horrid. And, yes, EJ is very much to blame along with Stefano. Why does he get away with it? He is a villain and they are more interesting on the loose than rotting in jail, so the writers think. At this juncture, I have a hard time dealing with what Stefano and EJ are doing, and it needs to stop. This is not entertainment. Sometimes, I can get why EJ does things, but this has crossed a line.
Until EJ gets over his obsession with hurting Sami, we will have to endure this crap. I am hoping this will blow up in his face sooner, rather than later. I tend to like villains, but this is even too much for me. I do like him with Nicole, because there is another side to EJ. So far, I can still separate the two.
