Oh I don't disagree with that though I also don't think EJ is exactly a shining example of consistent writing. I do think the current story is being written better, but I think it's kind of interesting how similar it is to the previous one.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Those aren't random details.
Sami is the main character in both of these stories.
You just don't like my details.
No, they're just not really relevant. In both cases Sami shot someone and tried (and succeeded) to get away with it. In both cases, her significant other covered for her at the expense of family. In both cases there was a person with a pretty weak motive determined to make her pay and despite the fact that the person had some good points, no one supported them accept for the person going against Sami. Her arrogance and justification are playing out similarly. There are obviously some details that are different. I doubt Adrienne will die and Sami completely side stepped anything legal back then, but the structure of the stories and the characterizations of the main characters involved are all VERY similar.
Yeah well, EJ is hotter than Rafe. So there.
Really though, I have to admit that you're mostly right. But I still think EJ wears the willing-to-do-anything-to-protect-Sami hat better than Rafe does. Up until that story, Rafe was Dudley Do Right and all of a sudden, he was willing to break the law and throw his sister under the bus. I think it turned Rafe from just being a boring character into being a boring plus inconsistent character. On the other hand, it's much more "in character" that EJ is willing to break any law and hurt whoever he needs to hurt in order to get Sami out of jail.
And plus, EJ is hotter than Rafe.
