Well I don't agree with your assessment of Sami's families feelings about Rafe (initially) but that's completely independent of what I'm talking about. Their families aren't particularly relevant to my opinion of how the characters are acting. Their scenes remind me of safe's scenes when they first got together in Salem.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
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.
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.
There's no way EJami is Safe right now. Sami's family couldn't have loved Rafe anymore and couldn't have been more thrilled she was with him. Quite the contrast from the reaction she's getting announcing she is with EJ....and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I definitely agree the writing has been more black and white. I just don't agree with talking in absolutes like, "EJ's dark side is over" because nobody knows that. Especially when you've got people like Caroline, Kayla and Marlena reminding us of it, not to mention the usual suspects like Rafe. I like that they keep that potential alive and depending on circumstance, I feel that he could go back there at any point in time if the situation arises.
