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 itīs 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 canīt make him to bad.
.Ej did kill someone in the past...he's killed and attempted to kill....the writers don't know how to write the character, they never have because they always wanted to keep the option of him in a romantic lead character open. IMHO it's a failure because they way the character works is as a villain...you can't have it both ways...and EJ is not a grey character, he's plain evil...he's done enough bad things to those he's 'claimed to love' to last me a lifetime...and that includes his children too.....He's just like Stefano...but they've painted him in this 'I'm good' light now...he's pretty much like any other bad guy turned good guy now...he's not different than Rafe or Lucas or anyone...he's generic....

I disagree with this somewhat. EJ works as more than just an uber bad guy. JS can play the romantic/daddy stuff well, so I think this current "in between" version of EJ works well too. And I don't see him just like Rafe or Lucas. I can't imagine either of them in the scenes where they discussed killing Nick or committing corporate espionage. So he's not just a generic good guy IMO. However, I do agree that the writing turning him from uber bad guy to kinda bad guy should've been better.
