That's what I want. I personally want a John who won't worship every decision Marlena makes.
One of the things I love the most about Bo and Hope is Hope's ability to call Bo on his shit when he screws up. She loves him, but she pulls no punches when he acts like an idiot.
What I liked about nuJohn was that ability to do the same to Marlena. So many Salemnites kiss the ground she walks on, it's refreshing to find someone who points out her motives and actions aren't always so pure. Once that happened, it started happening more and more. It being pointed out that maybe Marlena needs to let John WANT to return to his old self. The fact that what she did to Stefano is no better than Jawn wanting to kill Stefano. And so on.
By the same token, I'd like Marlena to do the same WITHOUT having to suffer from amnesia or Satan or Stefano's control or whatever. This thought might not be popular, but Marlena, for being a psychiatrist, is actually one of the more weak-minded women on this show. Gotta give her kudos for mustering up the strength to give herself the antidote. There might be hope yet. But when it comes to mind control....Ah, well.
