Except he hasn't actually transformed because he hasn't done anything to make up for the things he did. He walks around perfectlly happy and free enjoying life and doing exactly what he wants to do. He hasn't secretly donated money to Eve's family, or felt guilt for murdering her. He never confessed to clear John's name. He never apologized to the people he hurt, he just acts smug around them, or offended that they have the audacity to be mad at him.

Ej isn't going to be the one who hurt Rafe....they are painting him as the good guy in this story and that will complete the failure of the character
I think the problem is that those who love bad EJ wants him to be bad but not to bad. The writhers kept making him quilty of attempted murder but not actual murder because that might scare the fans away. I love both Ejami and bad EJ so I have been a Little concerned that pairing Ejami would make EJ good and boring, but so far I have loved them together but it´s possible that I would get bored with EJ if he is Everett for to long. Still even if EJ was with Nicole I think his hands would be tied since the writhers can´t make him to bad.
Except EJ is already guilty of murder. And several counts of attempted murder. Writing him as a "good guy" helps salvage Ejami but it goes against his true character. However, in this case, I would prefer EJ were not the guilty party. Rafe is smug enough as it is without EJ giving him extra incentive. I'm hoping this is Nick or Stefano's crime.
EJ hasn't done anything REALLY sinister for quite awhile (since R2). It's just been some lying, embezzling, political dirty tricks, etc. Based on his writing since mid-2011, it seems like they've settled on making him more of a light version of a bad guy (i.e. no more raping, kidnapping, attempted murder, etc.). And really, that's where I'd prefer they keep him since TPTB also want to sell him as a romantic lead/family man. I just wish they would've done a little more explanation for why he's decided to have no more life of MAJOR crime. Losing his kids in 2011 and losing Lexie in 2012 could obviously be reasons, but I wish they would've explained his transformation better.
For example, when Kayla was going through her first Christmas as a single mother. EJ, after torturing Kayla and her husband and getting off scott free, had the nerve to smirk at her and enjoy her pain and discomfort at coming face-to-face with him having a great time in her family's pub.
