I agree that it doesn't have to be black and white, but I do think it has been. I see some potential for that to change but so far I've seen no evidence that it actually will. I think ejami are basically safe right now, lol.

I enjoy the entire interview.
I like that Ali said that EJ's dark side attracts Sami becuase Sami could be herself with him; she dosent have to change who she is. Which is why I have always rooted for EJami.
And this is why I gave up on rooting for EJami.
It's all about Sami - Sami doesn't have to change who she is but she doesn't extend the same courtesy to EJ - he can twist himself all ways to Sunday and she'll still decide its not enough.
As soon as the chips are down she'll throw him to the wolves unless she's going through one of her " ooh I can be a detective like all the other brady's phases".
Ej's dark side is not something she embraces its something she uses to lord it over him that she's superior.
And haven't they gone out of there way to show EJ's dark side is over with giving needy children some of Johnny and Sydney's Christmas presents and EJ not going after Rafe and Daniel for helping Nicole. Remember how impressed Sami was suppose to be about that? Well whatever.....I guess they have to sell whatever is going on screen now and hope the audience doesn't remember what we just saw a few months ago.
I don't see it as black and white as you describe. His dark side doesn't have to be "over". I think Sami knows he always has the capability to go there at any given moment. Her family is less than thrilled she is with EJ. Caroline was shown just yesterday to not trust him. Sami said to EJ, "you're up to something" and EJ's response is "always".
I don't think EJ has to be an all black or all white character. I do agree they have been lacking in giving us a consistent explanation for his motivation for trying to walk the straight and narrow a bit better, but the show is definitely reminding us that he's no angel.
