When John McBain came to Llanview in 2003, he fooled many into thinking he was a pool scout, most notably Natalie Buchanan. It soon became known that John was an FBI agent, one of the good guys.
A man haunted by many demons, John has loved and lost. When he finally found his father's killer, John was ready to put some of the pain behind and open himself up to the one woman who knew him best... Natalie.
However, on one fatefully night, John was involved in a massive car accident and presumed dead, leaving Natalie devastated. What no one knew was that John was alive, in a hospital bed, thought to be Hugh Hughes! With the truth finally out, John now faces a new road ahead filled with hard, emotional challenges.
Though John and Natalie tried to make a go of their relationship, things didn't work out, and John started dating Marty Saybrooke. Just as John and Marty grew close, John was left to believe that Marty had died after blowing up in a van while John was chasing the people stalking Cole.
Months later, not able to get Marty out of his mind, John put the pieces together and realized that Todd Manning, who had rescued Marty from Lee Ramsey's, where she'd been held hostage after a memory loss, had been holding her at his place.
John saved Marty, who had no memory of him, and helped her realize who Todd Manning really was - not the man who Marty had fallen in love with! It took a while, but John was able to get through to Marty, and rebuild their relationship - and even went back to work on the police force, as well as bought Rodi's.
John's next case was trying to prove that Jared Banks was behind the stalkings surrounding Jessica Brennan. Natalie didn't appreciate John implying such a thing, but John only wanted to get to the truth - in order to protect Natalie, who he admitted he'd always care about.
After Jared died at the hands of Mitch, John and Natalie grew close again. This came soon after he and Marty lost their baby after Eli Clarke pushed her down the stairs. During John and Natalie's reunion, they got their wires crossed and Natalie slept with Brody, thinking John didn't want her back.
John and Natalie decided to give their relationship another shot. When Natalie found out she was pregnant, John decided he couldn't wait to make a family with Natalie. After the baby was born, and after weeks of Marty trying to tell John the truth, Natalie was forced to admit at their double wedding with Jessica and Brody that she and Brody had a one night stand - and her baby was really Brody's! John refused to forgive Natalie and eased his sorrows in the arms of Kelly Cramer, who had been fighting her own battle with love for Joey.
During one of John's many drinking benders, Todd approached him to look into Tomas' past. John refused then ended up with Todd in the Rodi's parking lot facing gunfire. Todd was shot, but John managed to hit the gunman with one of bullets. John began his latest investigation and became suspicious of Tomas.
Blair Cramer McBain (married March 2009 - divorced)
Tomas holds Tea at John's. Tea thought she'd never see him again and asks, "Are you all right?" Tomas will be once Todd pays for what he did. He's haunted by the look in Blair's eyes after he was forced to confess to killing Victor. After John calls in a warrant, Tomas wants to call Blair. John objects. Tea admits Blair doesn't know the truth about Tomas or Todd. When he hears Todd and Blair are getting closer, Tomas turns to leave. "Don't do it," John warns. Tea convinces Tomas to wait it out and explains, "This way, Todd can't make it any worse." Tomas trashes John's and anticipates Todd finally getting what's coming to him.
Todd pulls Blair onto her bed. "What's your hurry? I'm not going anywhere," she says and kisses him slowly. Todd pulls back. Blair wonders why. "I can't do this," Todd replies. Blair begs Todd to tell her what's wrong. He remembers only wanting to get back to Blair and their kids. Now he feels as though he's going to lose them all. Blair promises he won't. "I do stupid things," Todd admits. There's no one in the world who Blair trusts more than Todd. If he knows why they shouldn't be together, Blair pleads, "Please tell me." Todd kisses Blair. They make love. Suddenly, John barges in and announces Todd's under arrest for the murder of Victor Lord Jr.!
Natalie and John wake up in bed, glad they finally got it right. Natalie invites John to Llanfair to watch the last episode of "Fraternity Row." He declines but insists Natalie and Liam return home to him. Later, alone, John gets word on the findings from Todd's phone.
At the warehouse, Baker finishes up a call with Todd, assuring him that they'll be moving Tomas today. Once he hangs up, Tomas taunts Baker, who demands he shut up. His story is on. Baker turns on the television. Suddenly, John appears and knocks Baker out.
Tea arrives at John and wonders what his message was all about. Did John find Tomas? Tea turns, sees her brother and rushes into Tomas' arms.
