This storyline is about someone from Nick's past who came to get revenge on him. The doctor is the one that decided to use Sharon as part of her scheme. How or why Sharon became entangled with this doctor is irrelevant, people blaming Sharon for being at Fairview under the doctors care is wrong and in no way makes Sharon responsible for the doctors actions. Sharon was used and victimized by this doctor as a means to an end, getting revenge on Nick. Sharon was put in a horrifying situation of finding out the baby you're raising and love is not yours. Not wanting anyone to find out, not wanting to lose your child, your family, is a perfectly normal reaction. Sharon struggled with this decision every day which means she's not evil or cold-hearted but was in impossible situation and all because some woman wanted revenge on Nick. Can she be blamed for keeping the secret, yes. Was it understandable, yes to me it was. There's a lot of victims in this plot and Sharon is one of them. Sharon Case is doing a fantastic job, I love watching her and I feel her in every scene. Rock on!
awesome post. *clapping
* There are a ton of fans who see this situation the same way. Trust me, there is still a lot of vocal Sharon support outside this board and TBTB are hearing it.
Sharon is not evil, and never was.
Sharon is still at her core kind-hearted and compassionate.
Sharon is not a "kidnapper".
A simple check in a dictionary will confirm that.
Sharon always was and still is a good mother who loves her kids.
Sharon has BPD which causes her to act erratically at times if she doesn't stay on her medication. But even then, the right dosage can be weeks and months of trial and error. The way the illness has been written is a slap in the face to real sufferers of the disease and their families. It's obscene because the way writing had her behaving was offensive to sufferers of the illness.
Sharon has been treated more unfairly and to a different and impossible,
higher standard than anyone else on the show. Period.
True fans have stuck by Sharon because at the root of it all is the writing has not been true to the character for many years now. That's why there is continuing uproar over how her character is being written. True fans simply won't accept the caca that's been written for her, inspite of BTS pressure for the actress to say she enjoys these storylines. Right.
We all know most actors do NOT get to dictate their storylines and SC knows that better than most, I believe.
But change is a coming loyal Sharon fans.
Real changes, some of which are already being seen on the show. And changes are definitely coming for our gorgeous and talented leading lady Sharon Case (Mariah too!). Someone who works for CBS SID has emphatically tweeted that Sharon fans will be very pleased with what's to come for Sharon with the new writing team. A team who I am betting were horrified to see what's been done to Sharon because the new HW and story consultant both worked with Bill Bell when "Sharon" was created and helped write her storylines that propelled her to huge popularity from 1994. Seeing is believing, of course, but I think we may FINALLY get the real Sharon back! Some really won't like that, but Team Sharon's time may finally be here in a few more weeks! I know I'll be tuning in then with my pom-poms. Perhaps there will even be a "Sharon is back!" Twitter party, similar to the "SageisDeadParty" that trended last April. Good times.
Team Sharon baby!!
