It's a story-telling device that used a lot in mysteries. When a writer wants to set up a mystery of who perpetrated some crime, they set up possible suspects. The "red herring" is typically the person that the writer paints as the most obvious suspect. The purpose of the red herring is to throw the reader/audience off so that when the real perpetrator is revealed, it's a surprise.
That's why many people are assuming that EJ didn't orchestrate the beatdown on Rafe since the spoilers are setting him up to be the most obvious suspect.
