The roomful of toys probably came from EJ, and he is insisting on giving toys to charity so that Sami can look at him with doe eyes and love him for that. Seems like it to me anyways. :(
Oh that dastardly devil. :rolleyes:

Seriously - if they are going to have him scheme I'm going to need it to be just a bit more devious than donating toys to charity or taking advantage of the opportunity to work closely with Sami at a job she loves. I don't want him kidnapping the kids or anything...but I wouldn't mind seeing him bring Meredith back to town armed with more bricks and mortar. ;)
Actually, this is exactly the kind of scheming EJ should be doing. It's much less likely to blow up in his face. If he brought back Meredith with bricks and mortor, he would inevitably find himself behind that brick wall and only Rafe could save him. This is really much less dangerous.
I agree. To me, the ideal EJ is one that lies, manipulates, and blackmails, but doesn't cross the line into trying to kill people and kidnap babies. I think the former can realistically exist in Salem and be written consistently as a gray character. He wouldn't be so bad that everyone would want him dead, but he wouldn't be so good that people would actually trust him or extol his virtues.

When they go too dark with writing for him (like attempted murder and kidnapping), it just becomes silly that this guy is even allowed to walk freely, let alone be around his kids. Stefano could do really dastardly stuff in the 80s and 90s because they would take him off canvas whenever it got too heated. With EJ, if they want to keep him a permanent part of Salem but also make him somewhat villanous, then I think they have to stake out a consistent middle ground with him.
