Couldn't have said it better. I hate this writing.

Well, I'm always for John punching someone making a move on Marlena, but the writing for this is SO bad. First of all it makes no sense that Marlena is willing to give Trent a chance but not John, since he is at least trying to change somewhat. And it's like deja vu all over again with the divorce mention, only this time it's Marlena dating someone else. But it looks like there isn't even a date. It's like Higley comes up with an idea like "John gets jealous" and then has to fit the characters into her idea, and doesn't write any build up. This whole thing probably happens at the pub, and then we'll be on to Higley's next brilliant idea. Same thing with the Sami custody thing. Higley thinks, what can I do next with Sami/Lucas/EJ/Chloe/Nicole? A custody fight! Let's have Sami lose custody without actually showing that part of the story, then let's have her steal the baby because gee that sounds like an exciting episode. Meanwhile, I'll put Stefano in the DiMansion and parade everyone in and out of there for weeks.
