So this was kinda perfect, huh?
The moment Kate grabbed Sami and pulled her into that hug, she essentially confirmed what we should have seen all along: that she’s hated Sami all these years — hated her enough to want to keep her away from both her sons — because, in Sami, she recognized herself from 25-30 years earlier. She knows who Kate Roberts is, and she wouldn’t have wanted her sons with that woman, and she saw that woman in Sami Brady.
These scenes were such a lovely tribute to the work these two actresses have done together. Sami and Kate’s feud is going to go down as one of the best relationships in Days history, and I’m so glad the last year of Sami’s story has involved Kate so heavily.
I was going to complain that this SEC thing is random and forced, but honestly, I have to give the show credit: if you’d told me you were putting Sami Brady in charge of a multinational corporation, of course this is how things would wind up. She has no idea what she’s doing! It’s an oddly perfect payoff to this entire thing.
I’m just gonna keep focusing on this material and ignore the 8,000th conversation between Will and Sonny about some article Will has to write. You know what real writers do, Will? Research. There are things to write about in the world other than your family and friends! Hop to it.
