Marlena’s in some trouble! Tell us about it.
Well, I assume you’re talking about Friday’s show. Oh my gosh! Wasn’t that fabulous? That was so long in coming, and our writers are so brilliant at taking one little morsel, like when Kristen bought off the the thug that beat up Brady, and that picture was everywhere. Everybody had it. The little girl had it, the little boy had it. We all knew that was the nail in the coffin if we could just find that thing. And it was the same with the flash drive. Everyone had it. Nobody could find it. It was on the floor, it was in my purse, it was spilled on, it was lost. It’s the anticipation that builds when you have a tool like that, and it’s spectacular. Because once it’s now been transposed, Victor knows what it is and he’s going to make Marlena do it? Oh my God!

Will there be some sort of confrontation with Victor now that he’s thrown her under the bus?
I have a moment with him. No, I don’t slap him. It isn’t what you’re looking for, but I do have a few minutes with him where I get to say, “Wow. You knew.”

John’s coming back. Does she get to be mad?
Yes. Thank God. And we’ve played scenes where he keeps trying to infuse himself into a family situation and keeps being told, “You have no place in this. Get out. Shut up. Stop talking. None of your business. Step back.” Yeah. We all get to do it to him.

So that’s not for a while. What’s happening between now and then?
We have a new character. Chandler’s gone. And we have Guy coming in. We’ll have a slight transition there. He’s darling. He’s a different guy. He’s not Chandler, but his heart is huge. He’s working very hard to make it work. He’s working with me to make it work. And I think you’re going to love him.

So you will get to interact with him. The Marlena/Will stuff stopped kind of suddenly.
I know. Once he came out and then he met Sonny, I think they just moved on.

It sounds like there is going to be a lot more family interaction.
It’s what we’re all looking for. We all want that family. The tape airing is a sea change for all the storylines. Obviously for Brady, Kristen, Eric, Marlena, Sami...I mean everybody. EJ. Everybody gets flipped upside down. It’s just brilliant storytelling, and it takes you in a whole new direction.

When John left, we got to see a much different Marlena. Will that continue?
He’s only been back for a week or so, and I have very intense scenes coming up with Eric and other things going on. And with Will and Sonny.

Do you see the difference in Marlena now compared to a year ago?
Well, she was a loner. You had a woman who was unattached, not to her family but to her husband. There was a loss. There was a hollowness. But she was foremost a mother, and as we all know as a parent that’s what sustains all of us.
