Quote mbfc3: Marlena to Victor: "Go to Hell!"
Victor to Marlena: "I'll meet you there!"
This is why I can forgive Victor most anything. John Aniston delivers a line better than most.
I, too, have forgiven both Victor and Stefano just about any villainous scheme they've put into play in the past, since they are such fabulous actors. But Victor's latest plan to "save" Brady--with no concern of how it would seriously hurt any other innocent party--is beyond excuse. Did he honestly believe that his "beloved" Maggie would stick around when she discovers what he has done? For a clever man, that sure was DUMB! Since it's doubtful she will ever forgive him, Victor will probably revert to being completely EVIL--with none of the softer (and likeable) qualities she brought into his life.
