John couldn’t believe Kristen was getting Rachel’s hopes up about her getting back together with Brady. He knew they were never going to get back together. Marlena wasn’t sure since Kristen was a good manipulator. John wanted to stop her. Marlena wasn’t sure how they would do that. Brady walked in and found Susan in the room. Brady was about to call Marlena to let her know that Susan was alive when Kristen took off the disguise. Brady wondered why she was dressed that way. She told him that she couldn’t console EJ for losing his mother so she wanted to console him dressed that way. He didn’t think it would work plus it would be a cruel thing to do. She wanted to assure EJ that Susan’s death wasn’t his fault. Brady was surprised that she wanted to do something like that, but he told her it was cruel.
