A tall, dark and handsome EJ DiMera came to town to do more then just drive the ladies of Salem crazy. He had a deeper and more sinister mission: to help bring the DiMera name back into Salem.
When Sami gave birth to twins, a DNA test stated that Lucas was the father of the girl and EJ was the father of the boy. EJ pushed Sami into marriage, and his deep love for Sami kept their marriage together until Nicole Walker seduced him. Although Nicole was told that she could never have a child, she became pregnant with EJ's "miracle" baby after their one night stand.
Nicole had a miscarriage. Devastated by the loss of her own child as well as being fully aware of her husband's repressed love for his ex-wife, Sami, Nicole continued to pretend that she was pregnant, deceiving EJ. Meanwhile, Sami was actually pregnant with EJ's baby. Nicole swaped Sami's baby with another, and claimed EJ and Sami's baby as her own.
Eventually, through the effort of Sami's new boyfriend Rafe Hernandez, the truth of Nicole's baby swap came to light, and Nicole ran away with the child. When EJ saw Sami's devastation at losing her child, he brought Sydney home, presenting himself as the hero and embarrassing Rafe who was leading the FBI investigation.
Rafe and Sami broke up, and Sami and EJ became engaged again. But Rafe later exposed the truth; EJ actually kidnapped Sydney to get Sami to fall in love with him. After receiving a tip that EJ intended to leave town and take Sydney and Johnny with him, Sami shot EJ in the head while he was passed out. After EJ found out Sami was the one who shot him, he and Sami came to a truce and agreed to share custody of their two children. EJ remarried and is currently in an unhappy union with Nicole Walker. His heart really belongs to Nicole's sister, Taylor.
Despite Sami and EJ's agreement, EJ continues to create drama in her life. EJ and Stefano kidnapped Rafe and held him in the mansion's secret jail cell, wiped out his memory, and replaced him with a look-a-like to act as the real Rafe. The look-a-like Rafe was instructed to gradually make Sami divorce Rafe, with the hopes of getting Rafe out of the lives of his children forever.
