IMO, as I responded above, the scene was definitely less about Kristen this time than it was about Eric. All the viewers -- and EJ -- know how Sami feels about EJ's sister. What the writers wanted to reaffirm was how Sami feels about her brother. She said he's her hero and EJ acknowledged his goodness. Then EJ finds his sister has done something vile to that good brother...and is even planning to drug him again as a cover up of her crime.
So what will EJ do about that sister of his? Surely he will at least try to prevent Kristen from repeating her drugging crime. Please God, no more 'potions.' Beyond that, isn't everyone pretty sure he will not do the right thing to expose Kristen.
So if the scene failed in its purpose and came across as just redundant Bristen baiting by Sami, then IMO it was the break down/script writers failure in the way they chose to set it up. You didn't mention that it was a sex scene, but maybe that's part of the reason why its purpose failed. The sex set up was just too familiar...or too distracting. But I think the idea of the dialog in the beginning and the confrontation at the end of the episode was a good concept -- very soapy.
