Sami & Marlena Have It Out!
Sami is none too pleased when Marlena drops by for a visit. The already fragile relationship between Sami and her mother was weakened after Johnny’s kidnapping. In addition, Marlena’s close relationship with Will, who was estranged from Sami, only made their issues worse. Sami was feeling guilty for sleeping with EJ,and letting Rafe believe he was the main reason for their marital issues.
It was a scene rife with Days of our Lives history — from Sami recreating the affair that ruined her life, to the possesion nod to history. Sweeney and Deidre Hall layered their scenes with subtext, multiple emotions and depth that had everyone talking. Finally, both women got to address the very valid issues that has plagued their relationship for almost twenty years. The irony of Marlena telling Sami to be a better mother and Sami telling Marlena she is a bad mother wasn’t lost on anyone. These two are far more similar than either would ever admit.
