Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.
I do understand where you are coming from and I agree wholeheartedly with the last part of your post. As a big Sami fan, I don't particularly want to see her turned in to a lily white heroine. It is a total misuse of the character and the actress - particularly when you consider the YEARS she's spent being just the opposite. And one of the major reasons I love EJami is that neither character are necessarily heroic and both have done things that are completely horrible.
However, it does appear that is the direction they are heading. For whatever reason DAYS just cannot bring themselves to write a real romance for two darker characters - it's almost as if they feel compelled to 'redeem' them in order to make them worthy of love. So I suspect that is what we're entering in to - Sami is already being set up to be rewritten as the heroine. I think EJ will hit a very, very dark time and probably be a pretty despicable guy for a while - but in the end I think it could be that it will be Sami that will pull him out of the depths and he will then be suitably redeemed. Is all of that necessary to write a good love story? I don't think so - but I'm betting that's where they'll head with it.
