Absolutely, EJ does bad stuff to further his own agenda. Who did he learn that from?

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
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.
Stefano didn't influence Ej with the Sydnapping at all, he didn't know about it till a bit after he had done that....that was ALL EJ....and the Rafe2 bit, Ej could have taken himself out of the equation early on, but he chose not too because he specifically said that he wanted his children not to look up to Rafe as a person/father figure/man, whatever...he was just jealous of Johnny/Syd loving this man.....I specifically think that if anything it's proven that EJ can do very nefarious deeds without total influence from Stefano.
Stefano wasnt aware of and didn't support the John Black embezzling stuff.
Stefano was kidnapped when he arranged the Stephanie kidnapping.
Don't think Stefano was vaguely involved with the Will blackmailing.
EJ doesn't do bad stuff because of Stefano, EJ does bad stuff to further his own agenda.
Taking the examples you list:
- Do you recall the scene where EJ said the reason why he embezzled money from Basic Black? It was to prove himself to Stefano.
-Didn't EJ have Stephanie kidnapped because they had Stefano?
- I have a hard time putting EJ blackmailing Will into the column of EJ's darker crimes, whether Stefano was present or not, which we know he wasn't. EJ wouldn't have even blackmailed Will to begin with if Will didn't try to blackmail him first.
