I'm all for Kristen and Brady. This Brady really hasn't had a good love interest since Nicole, so why not he have a relationship that likely won't turn into anything really serious? Plus it will drive Marlena nuts and give her and John a story. I'm all for that.

While John has never been the sharpest knife in the drawer, why does he have to be so ruined for this story? And I can just see these writers thinking it is a good twist to make Marlena evil for this story? Marlena is the heroine, and her she will remain that whatever these writers do before the show goes off the air.

Marlena is clearly not evil. The viewers have always been given hints that Kristen is playing Marlena and now Kristen has basically confirmed this to us and Marlena. John might think that she's doing bad things, but the most important view of the character is how they come off the audience. She is still acting overly paranoid, but we have already seen that she has more than enough reason to be. Like you said, John is an idiot and IMO he has mostly been an idiot since the mid-90s...and yeah he has been just as dumb as this (and worse) multiple times.

I don't think Marlena is looking evil at all. She is looking paranoid, which I'm enjoying. Kristen does need to be successful in her scheming in order for the plot to move forward. John and Marlena's relationship does need to be threatened in order for there to be a story. If there's no conflict then why have them in Salem at all? They can just go on cruises/trips like Doug and Julie and show up in town for the occasional holiday.

I agree.

I still think there is a way to tell this story without killing metaphorically the characters.

Kristen and Brady are disgusting! She is his adopted cousin, much older than him, AND was married to/in love with/had sex with his father! BLECH!
