The Bold and the Beautiful viewers were in for a shock on Friday’s show, which saw the return of Sheila Carter.
As all soap fans know, Sheila Carter is one of the most popular villains in daytime history. She first made her debut on The Young and the Restless before going to its sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful.
Sheila’s reappearance on The Bold and the Beautiful is a breath of fresh air for the show, which recently had gotten stale. With the new Spectra gang and the Katie/Ridge/Quinn storyline, fans were getting fed up with the show’s writing.
Yet, B&B gave fans something to talk about by bringing back one of its core characters.
As a B&B fan, I’m excited about Shelia Carter’s return. She’s the main reason I started watching the show and got hooked on soaps. I didn’t know what it was about Shelia, but I was drawn to her character. I couldn’t understand why The Forresters were harsh on her, but then again at 9 years-old I wasn’t familiar with her history. But a refresher course from my mom and some research later on, made me realize why other character didn’t like Sheila.
Even though she was a villain and did horrible things, Sheila was my favorite character. She’s one of those characters that you can dislike, yet also like. Despite Sheila’s evil misdeeds, she’s tried to change, yet it always seems like she goes back to her old ways. And I believe that’s one of the reasons fans connect with Sheila. You don’t know what will happen with her. We never know what’s going to happen with Sheila. Sure, she’s always going to be portrayed as a villain, yet there’s a part of you that thinks maybe she really will change. She keeps you engaged with her actions.
I followed her journey from B&B to Y&R, and now back to B&B again. Like all B&B fans, I’m curious to see how Sheila’s return impacts The Forresters. There’s no official word on how long she’ll stay on the show, but there’s one guarantee.
There will be plenty of excitement with Sheila Carter back on the show.
