Fans of “Days of our Lives” were in for a treat this weekend as two of their favorites made a surprise reunion. On “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” the main topic of discussion was about migrants and refugees, and how countries are worried about letting them in their world.
A 16 year old Syrian refugee, Najeen Mustafa learned how to speak English by watching her favorite show….”Days of our Lives.” The young girl continued on with saying how Sami and EJ were her two favorite characters on the show.
From there, Oliver went on and described the love story behind Sami and EJ, detail by detail, leading up to EJ’s demise. In the end of the show, Oliver had a surprise for Najeen as he had Alison Sweeney and James Scott recreate a scene where EJ is reunited with his love, while still keeping in touch with the topic at hand.
