He knew she could handle Kristen. She told him about Shawn’s suspension for drinking on the job. He offered to talk to him. Marlena wanted to know about Rachel, but Kristen wasn’t saying anything until they revisited the custody agreement. She said she might be able to tell where Rachel was if they had joint custody of Rachel. After Marlena talked to Kristen, she ran into Brady and Belle. She told Brady about Kristen’s demands. He didn’t want to give in to Kristen. Marlena told him that any judge would give Kristen some visitation. She thought it was better for the time being.
