Given that EJami have just gotten together romantically it stands to reason we're in a bit of a gushy period. I think they have to establish that the two of them are both all in and completely committed to one another. So it makes sense to me that those scenes are similar to just about any other newly minted couple.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
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.
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.
Time will tell if we see them branch EJami out into becoming more than just a generic couple in love. I have high hopes they will based on comments we're hearing in interviews, etc. Personally I'm perfectly fine with them being total saps with one another (although the occasional fight followed by make up sex would be preferred) as long as we get to see them wreaking a bit of havoc elsewhere. Preferably together.
