See, I think this is where we always disagree because I see the Ava stuff as something that was needed for the story to get to J&M. I think Marlena needed to see how John would turn to a stranger over her because a stranger has no expectations. He can just be himself and she will accept him. I think Marlena needed to SEE that because, while the writing for her has been crappy up until recently, I think the one thing they've been consistent about is how Marlena felt she could accept him but never really did it. It was more difficult then she thought. I think many fans read that as the show going around in circles but I don't. I see it as Marlena trying to accept him and trying to be with him but then realizing she can't because she still believes her John can return, which is why she became focused on the disk for a bit.
This Stefano thing clearly brings John back into Marlena's orbit and will, perhaps, allow him to show some "old" John traits without actually being him. That may help Marlena come to accept him and I still think there is a reason why they had Marlena read that letter from Ava. I think it will lead to them talking or something.
I guess it's easier to say I'm one of the few, if not the only person, who believes this story has actually come together ok to this point. Not perfectly but pretty good. I know I'm in the minority on that though :laugh: .
