This gripping episode of Bold & Beautiful, airing on August 2, conveys a bitingly extreme episode as Sheila Carter’s unfaltering obsession with Finn and Hayes becomes the overwhelming focus. Like a canine with a bone, she sticks to her fantasies for the future, making Minister become progressively frightened at her capricious way of behaving.
At the same time, the anguish increases for Steffy as her most horrendously awful feelings of trepidation emerge before her eyes. The inner disturbance she faces will leave watchers as eager and anxious as can be, expecting unforeseen improvements that could change the existences of the adored characters for eternity.
Deacon’s Worries About Sheila’s Obsession
Deacon worries about Sheila’s idealized perception of what her future might be since she is once again acting like a dog with a bone regarding Finn and Hayes. The fact that Brooke has made it abundantly clear that she does not want Deacon means that he will always love her.
On the other hand, Sheila loves Deacon just as much and accepts him for who he is. Deacon is under no obligation to put on a show or pretend to be someone he is not for Sheila.
Sheila is happy about Deacon’s recent success at Il Giardino and supports his aspirations at the same time. Sheila would be the ideal partner for Deacon if it were not for the terrible events in her past. With that in mind, perhaps Deacon will decide Sheila’s past is no longer relevant.
A deacon may decide that he is prepared to take control of his love life after being inspired by the way Hope is doing it. In the future, will Deacon and Sheila be considered legal B&B couples? Will Deacon announce their engagement and make a marriage proposal to Sheila?
Reimagining Sheila’s Character
Sheila used to be an intriguing, if not downright terrifying, character, but now she is been reduced to a nine-toed cartoon who is singularly fixated on the idea of reconciling with the son she shot as if he is the only child she is ever given birth to and for the record, he is not. Not by a long shot. It is time to transform Sheila back into the ferocious, svelte machine she once was.
Allow her to embark on one last cross-country soap-hopping spree before she departs in style. The writers of Bold & Beautiful and The Young & the Restless ought to come up with a killer plot—pun intended—in which Sheila’s final reign of terror ends with her murder and a truly intriguing whodunit.
But let us face it, Lauren from Young & Restless has not even been informed that Sheila survived the allegedly fatal bear attack or that she is now a free woman. Young and the Restless featured a conflict between Kimberlin Brown, Tracey Bregman, Lauren, and Sheila.
The Tense Dynamic between Finn and Liam
Although the recent hostility between Finn and Liam came out of left field, as did the doctor’s apparent desire to connect with his psychotic mother, don’t we kind of like how the show is positioning the two men? What should happen, if either Liam or Finn dies at Sheila’s hands, or it should build to one of those two possibilities?
We all understand that the purpose of the show is not to kill Liam. But what if Sheila succeeded in killing Liam only for history to repeat itself and Finn to once more become the victim of his furious mother?
This would accomplish a few things, including allowing a grieving Steffy to leave the picture to allow for her portrayer’s maternity leave and then be free to reconcile with Liam when she returns.
