Days of Our Lives said goodbye to Allison Sweeney aka Sami Brady on Thursday in a sweet and sentimental way. Soap fans speculated that she might be going off to meet EJ who was killed a couple of weeks ago. Being a DiMera he could have been brought back to life, after all Kristen injected his corpse with something. In a quirky turn of events Sami was offered a trip to Hollywood where her life story will either be a movie, a TV series or maybe a reality show. Whatever it takes her away from Salem where everyone hopes she will come home to in six months.
Sami had touching moments with her mom Marlena, dad Roman, her frenemy Kate and her cousin Hope and her ex Lucas. The most touching goodbye was with her grandma Caroline Brady. They are so close and the feeling was palpable as they hugged and reminisced. Each goodbye was from the heart as sthey were all saying goodbye to Sami and Ali.
Not only do her fellow castmates miss her as do her numerous fans but Ali is missing Sami too. Here is what she told her fans on Facebook.
“And now it’s been only 5 months since I’ve stopped getting scripts in the mail, and I MISS HER. I miss Sami, her insecurities and her agendas. I miss my friends in the cast and crew who are as close as family to me. And now that you’ve shared with me Sami’s final goodbyes, I will miss all of you. Your compliments and your criticisms. Those of you who loved sami, loved to hate her, and even those of you who couldn’t wait to get Sami off your screens (though, those people probably aren’t reading my FB page, I guess. lol.) I hope you all keep up with me at Biggest Loser, and the other projects I work on. I look forward to staying in touch with all of you here and on Twitter. I’m still going to be around okay?! so this isn’t really goodbye. At least it isn’t goodbye for me. This is just my opportunity to say a great big, sincere, tearful, THANK YOU. For everything. Every cheer, every tear, every tweet, post and letter. Thank you for investing in me and my character.
#LOVE, Ali “
Here is hoping that Sami does come back in six months so her legions of fans can follow the rest of her story. So much more to tell.
