What Happened in Salem: Week of March 14th

The usual hallmarks of Salem life were on display last week: a wedding, a birthday, and a brainwashing…

While Steve, Rafe, and Marlena tried to pinpoint John’s whereabouts and coordinate his rescue, John was being held by his biological father, Yo Ling, a.k.a. Timothy Robichaux, a.k.a. Evil Dumbledore. Yo Ling told John all about how he’d reinvented himself as a crazy asshole after being presumed dead in the Korean War and how he’d taken John from the Alamains so that he could raise him as part of his Phantom Alliance. He also explained that, like Caroline, he suffers from Topit’s Disease and needs the serum, although unlike Caroline, he doesn’t seem to have memory problems, based on the fact that he talked for a flipping eternity about conspiracy theories and all kinds of other nonsense.

    After all of these years of John not knowing for sure about his past and that has been probably 30 years, it’s a real dud. I would say a very insignificant ending, if this ever ends.

      I’m strangely not HATING it, just because it feels dramatic and I want it to the final, FINAL answer to this long-lingering question. I would’ve been really annoyed if they had tried to retcon John into yet another Salem family (I had a suspicion they were going to make him a Martin last fall), so at least this puts the damn thing to bed.

        I agree. As strange as this story was it filled in the blanks and tied together John’s past.

      • mykleraus Says:

        And the climax was pretty good, in terms of incorporating lots of cast members and different threads. I’ve experienced much, much worse.

    I doubt seriously that it is over forever. There are always loopholes to these stories and in the end are never over. Look how long the John story has gone on. Years and years
