Aw, man. Marlena being possessed by the devil and Father John was my childhood (I know, it was a couple of years before Rolf showed up but still). I used to race home from elementary school to watch that. That was appointment television. Roswell, New Mexico... not so much.
Thankfully I think he just kept her in there because she looked not that decomposed - if she was decomposed at all - and since the pod seems to keep them in the same state they were in when they got into the pod, she would have looked a lot worse if he kept bringing her out and throwing her back in. But then Noah said his pod didn't work the same or was broken in the crash or was the dollar store version (like buying Tilde instead of Tide) so... maybe she wasn't as fresh as I was hoping?
Ugh. This show, I swear.
For the sake of argument, what if Liz knew what it would cost and agreed anyway? That'll take the cosmic out of your love.
I kinda wish they went there now.
Max: "I could do it. I could bring her back but it'll cost-"
Liz: "Yeah, do it. That's fine."
Max: "-my life, Liz. It'll cost my life."
Liz: "...yeah, I know. I said that's fine."
Max: "Oh. Um."
