How does Laurel react when she catches Marlon looking at Donna's video on the camera?
Laurel and Doug find Marlon watching something on the camera, but he quickly turns it off and covers it all up. Laurel’s suspicious and presses play on the video camera and sees Donna. This is definitely not what Laurel wanted to see and it raises her concerns about Marlon’s feelings for Donna.
How can Donna be a threat to Laurel if she’s deceased?
Laurel still feels threatened because her husband’s emotions and feelings are aimed at another woman. It could be seen as quite selfish, but the man she wants to marry isn’t there and she feels distant from him.
So what does Laurel end up telling Ashley?
She tells him that she doesn’t know how she feels about Marlon anymore. She’s confused and Ashley’s offers her comfort and a shoulder to cry on. She kisses Ashley, but not because she loves him - she’s reaching out to him.
Does she regret it afterwards?
Yes. She loves Marlon not Ashley and she doesn’t want to hurt Marlon. She was reaching out and she needed comfort and Ashley was there at that moment.
What does Doug overhear Marlon say?
He hears him in the toilet with Paddy talking about April and how he wished he hadn’t kissed Donna. This leaves Doug torn. Should he tell Laurel?
How do the pair come to confess that they kissed other people?
On the day of their wedding, she finds Marlon in the graveyard and she’s devastated to find him with Donna on his mind yet again. They talk and she tells him that she kissed Ashley and Marlon tells her that he did the same with Donna. It’s sad really because they can both see that the kisses didn’t mean anything, but they’re in a situation where their relationship is falling apart and they don’t know how to fix it.
Does their talk clear the air?
In a way it does and I think they both understand each other a lot more after they talk. But they can’t take much more of this. They are both so unhappy.
Will their relationship survive all this?
Marlon and Laurel definitely have a struggle ahead of them and they both have their own demons that they need to deal with. It will be interesting to see if they choose to take that road together.
