Except that throughout the entire story we saw that that was most definitely not the case.

That showdown with Kristen and Marlena is the reason I never stopped begging the show to bring ED back. As much as I hoped for it, I never thought I would see Eileen and Deidre in scenes again, so I'm still kind of pinching myself that she's actually back.
Those scenes were everything I hoped for and then some. Totally worth the wait.
If Eileen doesn't win the Emmy this time around I'm going to riot!
I just watched the episode and agree. Some have said the climax was underwhelming, but I disagree. Kristen and Marlena had a good showdown. It's not like Marlena can gloat that much; her marriage is in shambles. Yes, she brought Kristen down, but she didn't win the war. Because of Kristen's actions, her revenge plot may well have worked. Brady hates John for trying to sleep with Kristen, Marlena's starting to realize that John is not the man she married and probably does have latent sexual desires for Kristen (how else could he come up with such a cockamamie plan to take down Kristen: have sex with her?!) and nothing is as it should be. The writers did a good job by having Kristen point that out: it WAS a dumb plan. But that was done for a reason: to show that John is not the man Marlena married. It's possible that this is really the end for John and Marlena. Thanks to Kristen.
That's what I mean when I say that no part of this story has made sense. It's all plot points and nothing character driven.
