Correct. If EJ is hunky dory happy with Samanther and doesn't feel like that relationship is being threatened and he needs to go to extra lengths to protect it the return of Stefano will have no impact on his behaviour.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Absolutely, EJ does bad stuff to further his own agenda. Who did he learn that from?
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.
It was to prove himself to Stefano partially but it was mainly to further his agenda of cleaning up the DImera name so that HIS children would be proud of HIM so that HE could get them back because thats what HE wanted.
Yes Stephanie was kidnapped because they had Stefano but there were probably other ways he could have gone about getting Stefano back it was EJ's decision to use that tactic.
My point is EJ will do bad stuff if its going to help him get what he wants, EJ will do good stuff if its going to help him get what he wants. (ie exposing John being kept in the basement by Stefano, saving pregnant Sami from handing over stem cells)
Stefano being there or not being there is irrelevant to whether EJ will do bad stuff.
So Stefano's return should not affect EJ's behavior.
If Stefano comes back swinging a big bat obviously EJ may resort to bad deeds to protect the relationship if that is the thing that he most wants at the moment and bad deeds will happen.
If some other party comes in disrupting his happy nest, if he has to resort to bad deeds he will even if Stefano is still off enjoying Dimera Mansion version 2 (Fimera Fansion?) in a location where italian newspapers are available
