I think this isn't so much about them knowing or not knowing. It's about Stefano humiliating Marlena and making her admit publicly that she isn't perfect. That she was driven to do something no one would ever expect her to do. Maybe it's done to get her arrested or maybe the media is there or maybe people who don't know are there. I think it's more or less a humiliation thing. It reminds me of Belle's baptism when Stefano's mere presence forced Marlena to admit she had an affair right then and there, which humiliated her and showed that Marlena was no saint.
Except that the affair reveal was excellent writing. This is not.

Ellie, very good point. This is solely about Stefano humiliating Marlena. That's not really what the affair reveal was about. He wanted Roman to suffer, to find out that his wife had been unfaithful. He didn't do the reveal himself because he knew his prescence would affect Marlena and propel her. Everybody already knows, and likely that information came from Marlena herself, so what is there in this for Stefano?
