I truly, truly hope that they don't have John actually sleep with Kristen. Not because I'm some sort of J&M fanboy (I'm not; I'm all for characters breaking up for *legitimate* reasons), but because it would be TOTALLY out of character. The real John would never do it. When writers force a plot point through completely out-of-character actions, it demeans the character, the show, and is nothing more than lazy writing. In reality, John would actually *let* Brady stay with her and risk losing his relationship with his son before even contemplating such an act and betraying Marlena. |
Days writers be warned! You run the risk of ruining what otherwise has been a good story. It's bad enough that John has been written as such a cruel idiot since January, and that Marlena has had her backbone removed (she should've told John to shove it). But those developments, while touching the border of being out-of-character, can be tolerated for the sake of the story. John actually sleeping with Kristen would be disastrous, and not in a good way. It would be totally inauthentic, and you can't do that with a character of nearly 30 years. Drake's tweets last month hinted that he had to act out something that was out of character. I pray this isn't it. If so, the writers will have blown it, because if that inauthentic plot point is played out, every plot point that follows will also be tainted.
