It's going to take time for John to have a major breakthrough and I think this will do it. This will be the beginning of it and I'm glad it is. It should be a fun journey. With every person Stefano targets, I think John will get closer to who he used to be without actually becoming him. It will be like a redemption for him. He's been manipulating people and pushing them away but now he will go after Stefano and through Stefano he will redeem himself and become a better person in this new skin of his.

I like the fact that they are actually carrying through with this and not just giving us some quick breakthrough for John. They need to take their time with it and use everything that has been happening thus far to further everything and it seems they are.
The issue I have with this is that what you're describing already happened last spring, in the scenes where John and Marlena danced prior to her (first) trip to Colorado. John got emotional and told Marlena he needed her in his life. At that point, I thought the writers would be heading down the path you describe. I hope they're finally going to go in that direction now, but I honestly have no faith that they will. If they could lead the story so far astray before, what's to say they won't do it again?
