Past History

Shane first appeared on the scene when Viki traveled to Paris, Texas and worked at the Bonjour Cafe. Since moving to Llanview with his mom, Gigi, Shane has always longed to have his father back - a man he thought died at war.

It wasn't until 2008 that Shane got his wish when Brody Lovett came to Llanview and claimed the duty, even though Brody knew he wasn't Shane's father! However, little does Shane know, his dad is Rex Balsom, a man who he's already bonded with - the big secret his mother has been hiding from him his whole life!

However, after Shane connected with Brody, his emotions turned on Rex, who he saw as a threat to his family. It wasn't until months later that he and Rex created a bond and are now closer than ever. Shane also likes spending time with Roxy who he still looks at as his grandmother.

News came that Rex's real mother was Echo, who Shane accepted as his grandmother. After showing her how to create a MyFace profile, Shane found some bullying messages on his own. He was also caught skipping class when a note was sent home to Rex and Gigi but promised not to do it again. It was clear Shane was trying to avoid those doing the bullying.

Shane's bully was revealed to be Jack Manning and his followers.
