Getting through those scenes is possible if you envision Marlena tearing up actually being Deidre tearing up because the writing is SO. BAD. Makes it possible to watch.

I agree the focus should be on Deidre, but they are just writing Marlena horribly and its almost like she doesn't feel like dealing with it. I mean I can see her trying when she starts tearing up every time John is being a dick to her, but it is just all wrong all over the place. In the hotel scene I couldn't tell what was going on at all, even given the fact that EM is a pretty bad actor and well...we all know about Drake. I really couldn't tell what was going on and how John and Brady were supposed to be feeling. There could have been any possible emotion going on at the time. It was super frustrating to watch.
