John Leaves Marlena!; Airs the week of January 14th

This week's issue of Soap Opera Digest has an article about John, Marlena and Kristen.

Marlena shows up at the Salem Inn wearing a wire and she tries to bait Kristen into admitting that she used Brady to get back at the Blacks. "Kristen figures out what Marlena is doing and uses it to her advantage," previews Eileen Davidson. Playing the innocent victim, Kristen gets emotional and charges that Marlena is happy about the affair because it keeps Kristen away from John.

Later, Marlena meets with John and he finds the recording device. After listening to it, John confronts Marlena and she is forced to admit that what Kristen said is true.

"Evidently, [all of this] is enough to make John throw his hands up in the air and walk away from all of it," previews Hogestyn.

By week's end, John informs a devastated Marlena that he's leaving Salem.

Pick up the latest Digest for details!

"Evidently, that is enough to make John throw his hands up in the air and walk away from all of it." That comment right there, that starts with "Evidently" makes me think that Drake thinks this is stupid as hell too!

Lol, I was just about to make the same comment. I swear, the writers better have a twist coming from this "John leaves Marlena" storyline because right now it's looking like utter crap.

Get your head out of your ass, John. You've treated Marlena like crap for months. You don't GET to be pissed off.

It's one thing for the writers to make John stupid, I can accept that, but it's another thing entirely for them to make him a complete asshole. There is no reason he should be behaving this cold and carelessly towards Marlena. Are we really to believe he would leave the woman he's loved and adored for more than 25 years over something so miniscule? To call this contrived is an understatement.

Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to the Kristen/Marlena scenes.

Exactly. John would never act like that.

I don't understand how he doesn't realize that this was a part of Kristen's plan. It'd make much more sense if he were pissed, but didn't want to give Kristen the satisfaction. Though really, I don't think him being this pissed makes sense either.

While John acts like he's done nothing wrong...

I don't like this cold, asshole version of John who thinks everything wrong in the marriage is Marlena's fault. Its not. Take some responsibility, John.

Kenny, your post is spot on!

John must have been taking Diva classes over in Switzerland. This is ridiculous enough that it makes me wonder if it's not part of a plan to turn everyone against him.

I get the feeling that they're going to write John off DAYS permanently.

These writers don't know ANY of the characters on this show... other then Kristen. She seems to be the only one written in character.

John is not this big of an asshole. Marlena wouldn't keep these kinds of secrets. Brady isn't this stupid... well okay maybe Brady IS THIS stupid! :P

I wonder if we are going to see Marlena at all while John is out of town??? :o

Correct me if I'm wrong... but are these the same writers that paralyzed John and sent him and Marlena packing to Switzerland??? I get the feeling they have a special kind of hate for the character of John, among others.

They're only writing Kristen "right" because she hasn't been a staple on this show in the past 15 years or so. It gives them some breathing room to try out her "new-ish" character personality.

Why does every couple have to break up to have story? John and Marlena teaming up could also have been fun.

I'm more annoyed that Marlena is not better at this at this point in her life than I am at John's departure, though. If she were on Kristen's level so there were a battle between the two, that would be fun.

"He told Marlena not to get involved. She did, and then she didn't come clean about it," explains Hogestyn. "Evidently, that is enough to make John throw his hands up in the air and walk away from all of it."



It doesn't sound like Drake likes what his character is doing ... I don't blame him, I don't like it either.
