For me, E.J.'s always been a pathetic excuse for a DiMera, because he refuses to own up to his shit. When he's caught, he turns into a sniveling, whiny person who doesn't hesitate to get down on his knees (literally) and beg for forgiveness. C had's more of a DiMera than E.J. is -- at least he never resorted to getting down on his knees and tearfully begging M elanie to forgive him, and he gets major points from me for calling E.J. a coward a few months ago (although he was wrong about E.J. being exactly like S tefano -- that's an insult to a great villain).
I'm sure that someone w ill correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can recall, I've never seen S tefano or V ictor get down on their knees and beg someone to forgive them for doing something wrong. Even after the egg debacle, V ictor accepted full responsibility and basically reminded M aggie that when she had agreed to marry him, she had been fully aware that he had once been a different person. He didn't want to lose her, but he was willing to accept that fate with dignity -- he certainly wasn't going to get down on his knees and beg her to forgive him.
I do think that part of the blame is on James Scott's shoulders, though. The writing is one thing, but I doubt that the scripts are telling James to get down on his knees and cry his eyes out every time his cookie is taken away from him. I also don't think that James is "HAWT" (or even hot), so that doesn't absolve him of his pathetic actions.
(Yes, I realize that my favorite character/actor on the show has done his fair share of crying scenes in the past year and a half, but the difference is that W ill was dealing with real problems of identity that he had no control over, and he was never even remotely attempting to be a villain. It's not that I don't think that men should cry -- I simply don't think that villains should cry when their own villainous acts backfire.)
