I intensely despise the character and always will for his rape of Sami! In my book he is totally irredeemable. He’s evil…always has been and always will be. No offense meant to all who like him, but the rape itself was unforgivable and the way he set the whole thing up had me feeling actual contempt for the way it was written. As for the actor, James Scott, he portrays EJ exceptionally well. My only complaint with him is that he speaks so fast and does not enunciate his words often making it difficult to understand him. Sami and EJ together…NEVER for me.
