Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Yes.....all the other times Stefano has been able to lure EJ back in had comes on the heels of what EJ felt was betrayal by Sami. Pushing him away, trying to give his kids to that idiot Rafe. With Sami on his side its going to be much harder to lure EJ to do anything that will jeopardize his family with Sami and their kids.
And its not the "stuff" that EJ gave up that made it a sacrifice. It was the pride and accomplishment he felt at having been able to gain it all in the first place. It wasn't the stuff EJ was giving to Stefano, it was a part of his soul and it was a huge sacrifice for him. Sami realized it EJ went to hell for her and she wasn't going to leave him alone in it.
And as far as Sami leaving after the first little grey thing EJ does for Stefano I don't think that will happen. To me the writing seems to be making it apparent that this time Sami knows she's marrying a "DiMera" and she accepts it.
Ej acted out of his own accord on a few situations though that impacted Sami direction WITHOUT his father even knowing about it. I see Ej doing plenty on his own this time too...he'll likely blame Stefano for his decisions when the truth comes out, but in the end, it's all on EJ. Just like in the past....no one told him to kidnap Sydney, but he did it...without Stefano's knowledge.....he's had chances with Sami before and he's pretty much thrown those chances out the window and it's not because of Stefano.
I still don't see how stealing something that belongs to someone else and then being forced to give it back, grovel, beg and kiss the ring as a sacrifice. The sacrifice would have been if he worked long and hard to make something of his own and Stefano in exchange for helping Sami would have made him give it to him. that is a true sacrifice...but something that belonged to Stefano to begin with? yeah...no....
Oh and Sami isn't going to give a flying flip about him doing something grey to Stefano....he'll have her support when that happens....but doing something like lying, or stealing about something that her perceives would benefit her or them, but it ends up being such a huge gamble that it ends up hurting her in the end is something that I don't know if she'll be able to get past. Ej said something on Friday that I can only see it as foreshadowing...he said that sometimes you have to lie to keep the one you love. We are not aware of anything he's keeping from her recently...obviously there is a lot he hasn't told her that were written in by former writing teams that I don't think will be the focus of anything this writing team does, but there has to be something in the future that he'll lie about in an attempt to help her or them and it'll up being what ultimately destroys them. That just seemed like foreshadowing to me.
EJ also kidnapped Sydney because of Sami betraying him, if she had not kept her pregnancy a secret and not waited to tell him about their daughter until she thought her being dead the sydnapping would never have happend.
