I love Marlena as an individual, but when she's with John...I just love her all the more. For me, the two evoke such a passion and chemistry on-screen that is just undeniable. They had people rooting for them as a couple when she was married to Roman (when she came back from the dead) and they had been a supercouple in their own right. But, when Drake came on the scene as Roman in '86 there was a passion and intent there that wasn't there before. It couldn't be denied even when Wayne came back and took back over the role.

The audience were actually wanting for Marlena to cheat on her husband with John. They didn't want the baby to be Roman's, they wanted it to be John's. (As did Dee. See clip below.)
