Do you remember Sugar on B&B?

When Lauren Fenmore Baldwin (Tracey Bregman) crossed over from The Young and the Restless last week to The Bold and the Beautiful, there may have been aspecific purpose. The writers possibly wanted long-time fans of the CBS sister soaps to recall two decades ago when Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) terrorized Los Angeles and Genoa City.

Some fans mau have recalled when Sheila had plastic surgery to look like Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford) on Y&R. Others might have remembered Sugar, (no last name) the prison warden Sheila, convinced to get plastic surgery so they would look alike. Sugar, (Robin Mattson) later served time in a mental health facility.

Mattssn has protrayed some of the most memorable villains on daytime. In addtion to her B&B character she played Heather Webber on General Hospital, Gina Capwell on Santa Barbara and “Janet From Another Planet” Green on All My Children.

Deacon is searching for clues

Deacon Sharp (Sean Kanan) mentioned to John Finnegan (Tanner Novlin) that Sheila had acted strange before she met her death at the hands of Steffy Forrester (Jackie Woods). He said she would disappear, and when he asked where she was going Sheila told him she was connecting with someone from her past.

On Wednesday Deacon told Finn that his birth mom was texting someone named Sugar whose messages were threatening. Finn responded that Deacon needed to accept the fact that Sheila wa gone for his mental health and move on, Deacon knows the corpse he saw being cremated had all ten toes while the woman he loved only had nine. Steffy and Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) believe Deacon is going off the deep end and needs to accept that Sheila is dead.

Deacon's search may uncover some answers

There are people who know the story of Sheila and Sugar and Deacon and or Finn needs to talk to at least one of them to validate his belief that Ms. Carter is still alive. He has even pondered that she might be out there somewhere in trouble. Some spoilers suggest that Sugar returned for recenge 20 years later, planning to kill Steffy and have the blame placed on Sheila. Other say that Sheila set Sugar up but how could she know that Steffy would kill her.

There are pieces missing to this puzzle and questions that need to be answered. Has Sugar been incarcerated for the past 20 years and was she recently released? If not where has she been and what has she been up to? What happened the last time she met with Sheila and whathas she done with Ms. Carter? B&B fans know that if she were able Sheila woudl have reached out to Deacon by now.

What is really going on with Kimberlin Brown?

Kimberlin Brown assured fans that her onscreen death was real and her days on The Bold and the Beautiful were over but was this just a cover story? Will she soon return or will Deacon go on a long and drawn out search without finding anything. Will more information about Sheila and Sugar be revealed including how, when and why they reconnected?

B&B fans are saying this is the first time they have been really invested in a storyline for a while and that the last Friday cliffhanger with the 10-toed woman being cremated was exciting.

What will a Sheila return mean?

If Sheila returns will Finn give her another chance and how will Steffy be affected? Deacon asked Dr. Finnegan if a small part of him wishes that his birth mother was still alive and he said it did not matter now. Be on the lookout for updates related to Sheila ande Sugar as they become available.
