Sarah’s not sure that will happen. She alludes to her feelings and trust issues before leaving.
In Marlena’s office, she recalls Victor telling her John is Leo’s father. John arrives and senses something’s wrong.

He explains how Diana confirmed his suspicions but asked him to keep quiet for Leo’s sake. Marlena believes Leo needs to know, but questions if it’s true since it’s obvious Diana wants John. He reminds Doc they’re inseparable. They express their love and kiss. John assures her they’ll deal with this together. Marlena feels they need a DNA test. John reminds her he’s a spy.

Later, Marlena joins them in the parlor, while John sneaks upstairs. Marlena confronts Diana for pressuring John to keep quiet, and assures her they are fine. Outside, Marlena’s gleeful that John has Leo’s toothbrush for DNA testing. Inside, Diana’s irritated. Victor intones that Marlena’s not going anywhere. Diana mutters, “We’ll see about that.”
