The land of daytime drama can be quite over-the-top. There are love triangles, affairs, illegitimate babies, and plenty of scheming. Soap operas can also dive into real-life issues and sometimes walk that fine line of divisiveness to relay an incredible story. Days of Our Lives (DOOL) is notorious for its wild plots but has also had its fair share of outrages over the years too. In fact, below are unforgettably contentious moments in DOOL’s history.

12. Sami And E.J.’s Love Affair
When E.J. returned to Salem in 2006, he was quite smitten with Sami Brady. However, Sami was in love with Lucas Roberts. Although the two were neighbors and became friends, she became leery of him shortly after his arrival to the little town. There was one occasion where Sami felt he tried to assault her and then in December of 2006 he forced her to submit and have sex with him in order to save Lucas’ life. The two had this weird love-hate attraction and despite the terrible things he did when it came to having his way with her, Sami ended up falling in love with E.J., marrying him, and having two children with him. Many DOOL fans can agree that E.J. had a very twisted way of showing Sami how fond he was of her and vice-versa.
