Stefano's influence definitely skews EJ's morality meter. The quality of EJs charcter I find most interesting is that his judgement is swayed by the person he desires the most validation from, be it a lover or Stefano. His desire to be a 'normal/better' man shows up with his personal love interests which always conflict with his desire for approval from his father.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
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.
Well some people have suggested that Rafe and EJ have bascially just switched places and I can see what they mean. And Marlena warning Sami about EJ's dark side showing up one day sounds like if that happens it won't be something Sami will be glad to see. But if she's so in love with his dark side then why warn her about it maybe returning? I
I think it depends on what is meant by "dark side." IMO, it's a matter of degree. I don't think Sami minds (and probably likes) that EJ is willing to do some illegal crap in relation to their business or to take care of their family. I think her fear of Stefano returning is him influencing EJ to do really bad stuff again - R2, Sydnapping, etc.
The only consistent thing about EJ is that he seems fairly benign on his own but his desire for Stefano's approval will skew his choices malicious.
