I'm no Ejami fan (due 100% to Sami being part of that pairing), but I guess I can't see how Johnny learning the truth will change his feelings for his father. Because Sami obviously got over it - she's slept with EJ multiple times since then, has dated him, gotten engaged to him, has/had/will have a relationship with him. I think the show's gone out of its way to show us that Sami doesn't feel like it was rape. Maybe she might have at one time, but she's over it.
Didn't Will know the truth? It didn't stop him from having a relationship with EJ (and becoming his lackey).
It will be glossed over and/or forgotten. The show has decided it wants EJ and Sami to have relationship possibilities, so that part of their history will be left by the wayside.
While I agree, I think this is a major problem the show has in general. I'd still like to see Abby and Stephanie find out about Jack and Kayla. That's good conflict and good, layered story. Having everyone just get over everything all the time is what kills the show for me.
I think Sariah is probably right that they will gloss over it, but even though I like Ejami, I think it would be good story if they had to deal with this in say another 5 years (sorasing allowed). I don't even think it would have to be a case where one of the kids ended up hating EJ or Sami for that matter, but some conflict would be soapy.
