I can buy that Marlena just feels insecure around any crazy lady, after watching John fall in love with Ava, and whatever happened with Charlotte Taylor that led to him being paralyzed for years. And Kristen targeted her more than those two. John and Marlena have both been all over the place on villains, so any position they took on Kristen would probably contradict something in their pasts.

The Possession story happened before the first round of Kristen going nuts, so I don't think knowing it was in her past would necessarily soften Marlena on Kristen at all. But I would probably never give someone another chance who locked me up in a secret room for a few months and made me watch her relationship with the man I loved through closed circuit TV. LOL.
You're right, there has been inconsistency all over the place. And, as I said, it's not that I think Marlena SHOULD give Kristen another chance or that her fears are in any way unfounded. It's just such a glaring contrast to how everybody in Salem deals with villians, not just John and Marlena. Honestly, this is how many characters should act around the people who have tormented them for years. They just don't.

So, as I said, it's not really a criticism of Marlena. It's more just a wish that this kind of realistic reaction was not such an outlier in Salem.
