|Sami said a tearful goodbye to EJ after his death.|
Fans have wondered if EJ is really dead. The answer is yes, for now, at least as dead as soap characters get.
"Perhaps, EJami fans will eventually see it as an appropriate end for the characters," Sweeney continued. "They etched their place in love-story history by ending with tears. And for all those who were opposed to the EJ-Sami pairing, there's a poetic justice there, if you choose to look at it that way. Or maybe I'm just trying to find a silver lining. I've made my peace with it."
Sami and her children leave Salem next week for Hollywood now that studio execs want to get into "the Sami Brady business" after reading Will's (Guy Wilson) expose.
