John arrives and Kristen clearly expects Marlena to reveal what she saw between Kristen and Brady. But to Kristen’s surprise, Marlena instead tells John about how she broke into Kristen’s room, confessing she feels badly about it now and felt the need to come clean with him. The moment is interrupted when John is called away on an emergency. Once alone with Marlena, Kristen keeps her agenda close to the vest even as she questions why Marlena didn’t say anything about what she saw. Marlena says it’s simply not up to her – Brady or Kristen can let John know or they can keep it to themselves but either way it is their business, not Marlena’s. Kristen realizes what’s really going on here – that Marlena’s not inclined to rock the boat solely because she’s relieved it’s Brady that Kristen’s interested in… not John. Once Marlena goes, Kristen gets an idea and texts Brady. Brady meets her at her hotel room and they make love… after which Kristen hints that Brady should come clean with his father about all this. But Kristen gets an unwelcome surprise when he uses her own words against her, thinking she was right when she said this should be their secret for now. He’s worried about exposing Kristen to John and Marlena’s anger. Kristen can’t contradict but ultimately realizes it might be to her benefit to keep John in the dark… for now.
