Oh. My. God!
This week, Days of Our Lives put together a couple I never would have predicted: EJ Dimera and Abigail Deveraux.
Simply put, the pairing makes me simultaneously cringe and laugh at the same time. Why?
Cringe because there's age difference. Probably somewhere around 15 years. Not that that's never happened before but it's still a wide enough gap to cause more than one raised eyebrow. And up until this point it felt like EJ and Abby had sort of a big brother little sister thing going...so I never saw this coming.
Secondly, I like EJ and Sami. I didn't always, given their history, but after about a decade of undeniable chemistry I'm finally sold.
So after years of hoping, begging, and scheming to get Sami to take him seriously, why would one more rough patch in their relationship have EJ suddenly falling into bed with Abby Deveraux? I'm still not entirely sure.
Yes, Abby is a beautiful, sweet girl but let's face it. She's also a bit of an nutcase.
When Abigail first came back to town, she did everything in her power to ruin Austin's marriage to Carrie. She even went as far as to lie about sleeping with him. Fast forward a year and Abby's playing Salem's resident good girl, lamenting about her virginity and pondering whether Chad is good enough for her.
Now she's bedding EJ Dimera!?!
And I had to laugh when she stormed over to the Dimera mansion today to ask EJ why it happened and accuse him of taking advantage of her.
Seriously, girl. You quite literally threw yourself at the man. Let's not play the victim card now that you're worried mommy will find out.
Speaking of Jennifer Rose, perhaps she needs to drop that self righteous streak. Her son's a former drug dealer and shop lifter and her daughter has slept with two Dimeras.
Perhaps Abby could bed Stefano next and make it a trifecta.
Of course, EJ is no saint in this mess. He could have said no when Abby launched herself at him. He could have walked back to his speed boat and left her panting after him back at the cabin.
But what fun would that have been?
As much as I cringe over EJabby, they also make me smile.
Because this is soap gold. Eventually the truth will come out. Jennifer will know her beloved daughter slept with yet another Dimera and Sami will find out EJ cheated on her. Let's face it. It's only a matter of time before all hell breaks loose in Salem…and I can't wait.
As for the mystery man behind the door at the end of today's episode. My guess is it's Stefano who will gleefully hold EJ's latest dalliance over his head.
So what's your take Days fans? Are you an #EJabby fan or are you hating Salem's newest secret couple? Can Sami and EJ survive this debacle?
Tell us. What's your take on EJ and Abby?
