I was watching then and I don't think I suspected at first that it was Marlena's twin who was killed. Maybe because we hadn't seen her for a while, so out of sight, out of mind. Of course, that plot hadn't yet been done to death either. I think the reveal came fairly quickly so there wasn't a lot of time to think about it.

Anyone remember when fans picketed NBC Studios because they thought Marlena had been killed by the Salem Strangler? (In the end, her twin was the victim.) Those were the days -- when DAYS writing was more fun -- and Marlena had a great storyline. Ah, memories!
I don't think anybody would fall for that these days, with the popular 'dead' character having an identical twin. I really don't see how anyone fell for it back then. Although, I guess those were the days before the audience was always on the lookout for a twist.
