Days' Deidre Hall: Marlena's Bad Behavior "Will Cost Her"

By November 19, 2012

Follow me on:

Deidre HallFending off her longtime adversary, Kristen, has pushed Marlena to the edge on Days of Our Lives and, as a result, she's been behaving badly.

"I love it," says Hall of Marlena's recent stunts, like erasing important phone messages from Kristen to John. "The audience has been put in that place where they're thinking, Do it Marlena. Then, No, don't do it. They don't know what to wish for.

"Of course, as we know in soaps, the minute you misbehave, the piper has to be paid," continues Hall, revealing that Marlena "will be caught and it will cost her."

Not that it will deter the character from acting out, again.

"Viewers have only seen a portion of what is coming up," shares Hall. "It's a precursor to a lot of stuff [that will be happening]. Eileen (Davidson, Kristen) and I just had scenes where I thought, I can't wait for the audience to see it. Because I think they'll like the dialogue. Marlena really kind of gets up on her hind legs."

Interesting. I’ll be honest. I’m rooting for Kristen 100%. Nothing like seeing Marlena overwrought and acting crazy. It’s delicious, and just what I love from Days.

I am having a little problem seeing Marlena act this way considering her medical background, she is a shrink so she ought to be able to grasp the point that this is going unless she isn’t as good as she is supposed to be. i can’t stand Kristen but when Marlena acts like a dumb blond i’m for Krinten and Marlena deserves what she gets.

I could never give validity to Marlena being a psychiatrist. She is too out of touch, and gets too personally involved. Doctor heal thyself. I like her as a character and person, but she gets too smugly pompous and self-righteous.

Marlena has always been portrayed as perfect. It will be nice to see her knocked down a few notches. She’s human after all.

Thank goodness for DVR! This is leading right down to the same old storylines. Seeing Marlena rear up takes me right back to the demon possession time….so out of character. Kristen is annoying. One, she is a DiMera, two, she is not sane and three, repeat! Anyone can see she hasn’t changed. Wake me up when it’s over!

I just find it so sad that the writers have made John and Brady so amazingly STUPID/MORONIC

Wait, Marlena hasnít always been straight; I remember when she went after Brady even calling in Roman to aid her. Also, how nasty she was with Hope, at times because of JT, when Hope wasnít the one who slept with John and needed help & answers. She has crossed the line a few times as a psychiatrist; she talks ethics then throws them to the wind when it suits her. Having said that, I prefer her dark she is far more interesting to watch!

When viewers find out that Stefano has put Kristen up to everything she’s done, Marlena will be proven to have been right all along, as well she should! Kristen tried to murder her, after all! It shows how smart Marlena is not to trust her, and how stupid John is.
