The Crazy Ex Only Rings 400 Times

So… Kristen and Brady are kind of fun together, huh? I’m glad they’re being vague about the whole “I used to be your stepmother” thing, since he was like six years old back then (15 years ago) and also because I have a memory of Brady and Belle living with Marlena even though John was living at the DiMera mansion with Kristen, and all the kids ever showed up for was to be told, “Cook just made cookies!” and be shuttled off to the kitchen.


Marlena has really gotten herself into a spot of trouble, huh? And this time, she wasn’t even brainwashed/possessed/gaslighted (gaslit?).

Can’t say I blame her, though. Kristen has been all up in her and her family’s business since the moment she descended upon Salem. I would’ve deleted her damn message, too. [Side note: How hilarious is it that Marlena and John have Kristen programmed into their phones? Does she have the same number as when she was sold into white slavery a decade and a half ago?] Of course, since this is Salem, Kristen didn’t just call John once, so Marlena is guilty of having deleted 400 messages about how Brady was at death’s door.

This whole conflict is so perfect. How delicious was Kristen telling Marlena, “Thank you” before sashaying out of the hospital? That is how you scheme, people.

Also, YOU GUYS: on Friday, NBC is replaying a classic episode from the John/Susan Graceland wedding. Things to be thankful for? Check.

    I like the set up for the Kristen / Marlena / John arc. It’ll be interesting to see how far they go with Brady / Kristen since Kristen has now revealed John is her endgame. Will she embrace Brady or will she still be drawn to John? And what if John decides to seduce Kristen to keep her away from his son? I want this to be incredibly messy.

      I’m totally in for this storyline. It’s a mess, in a great way. I hope they don’t back away from the conflict too quickly as they tend to do. Kristen has been a total breath of fresh air.

  2. Jayme Says:

    This storyline is great, even if we have to believe John-a multi bazillionaire CEO or whatever-is constantly without his phone.

    Life would be complete if there was a recap of Friday’s flashback episode. *ahem*
