Quote cam1207: I think we need to give Marlena a break here - as it is the writers or director that didn't show scenes with her showing support of Sami - in todays episode she thanked Marlena for all she did, I think eluding to the fact that Marlena was taking care of the children while she has been in jail....as for the flash drive - of course Marlena has it, but who will watch it?
Yes, there were several mentions and scenes with Marlena visiting and/or caring for the children. That's one reason Marlena was at the DiMera mansion so much, and a good excuse for her to keep tabs on Kristen. But there was at least one or two scenes of Marlena visiting Sami in jail.
As for the flash drive, I think Marlena will return it to Victor. But I hope that he actually looks at it instead of tossing it back in that drawer. Ole Vic could really throw Kristen under the bus with that little tidbit of information >)
