I have no problem with this because it's being played like Marlena proving a point to John. She's trying to show him she's serious about moving on and Trent just happens to be there. She's not really using Trent. She actually wants to move on. I don't see any problem with it. I like John going after her. It's refreshing and we know this isn't know long-term thing with Trent leaving soon.
I don't mind John's pursuing her in and of itself, but why should she want to move on in the first place? What about tomorrow's show? What about J&M growing closer these past two weeks? And as Jiggs pointed out, if Marlena does want to move on, why isn't it with "New John"?

I like Dee in this interview explaining how she justified it all.
Haha I liked that too, but sounds like it was for a different reason than you liked it.
Well, after what he says to her tomorrow, why would she want to be close to him?

She told him Monday and Wednesday she wasn't interested and was ready to move on and then tomorrow she kind of opens herself up to him again and his behavior afterwards closes the door...again. It makes sense for her to feel that it is, indeed, over now. She said she was through at the hospital yet she still sleeps with him and ends up getting hurt again. Then John continues to push so I can see why she would want to prove a point and try to get John to back off. Trent is there and it comes together. I really don't see the issue. It makes sense. Marlena made the decision to move on for herself yet she gives John yet another chance, sleeps with him, and he screws up and hurt her again. She now has to try to push him away or else she can never move on, hence the Trent issue.

Do I think she wants to move on? No. I think she's made that clear. I think she just feels like she needs control over her life and this is the only way to do it. The whole thing with Stefano and Sam made her see that she had lost her way. She's trying to get back her life.
