I think in his twisted mind, he may believe that it is a way to get back into a relationship with Sami, but I doubt it would work. If he is truly going to harden and go to the dark side, then if he does bring Sydney back, his being rejected by Sami would be a catalyst for that to happen.

The only reason I put EJ was because all of those red herrings you mentioned, but all his irrational behavior seems more like paranoia setting in or one of Susan's looney genes clicking on. I just don't see a good motive for EJ to be the napper because he can find a better way to exact revenge on all those people, it seems like too much effort for him to be the culprit. and I really don't see the need for him to play hero to Sami--it won't really change her stance on him.
I actually think this is the easiest
way for EJ to exact revenge on those three people, since the one thing they have in common is Sydney and wanting her. This way he doesn't have to come up with a dastardly revenge plan like a Bond villain for each one separately. With Sami, it's complete tit for tat.
I also don't see why it's any more effort for him to be the culprit than it would be for Stefano. And it's actually easier for him, who still has Daddy's resources, apparently, even though there's supposed to be the disownment, than it would be for, say, Owen, who has no money as far as we know and no resources, nor do we have any reason to believe he knows anything about Nicole being on the run or being in Cleveland. EJ will just use somebody he hires anyway, he wouldn't actually do the napping. It would have to be a really seat-of-the-pants plan for anybody but EJ or Stefano or someone affiliated with them. Even the hotel clerk, who I still think would be the utterly lamest of the possibilities, wouldn't have had much time to formulate a plan. I'm not saying I would necessarily hate it if Dr. Baker or Owen was behind it--in fact, I'd be happy to see Dr. Baker again--just that there are more holes to fill for them than if it were EJ or Stefano.
I don't agree either that EJ returning Sydney to Sami wouldn't change her stance on him. I agree that she doesn't love him, but she would probably believe he had truly forgiven her if he returned Sydney to her and didn't fight over custody with her any more, and if EJ wants to start a relationship with her then perhaps he would think that's a good first step. Heaven knows I don't want that to happen, but I could see it.
I am not counting him out as a participant in this second kidnapping for a second. The fact that he lied to Sami about not having his goons involved and solely going with the Salem PD should show Sami that he still isn't trustworthy, if she had any doubts about that.
