I must admit that lost a lot of interest in BB for a long time with the same old repetitive love triangles. When I heard that Shelia was coming back, I have not missed a day since. I love having this villain on my screen. Sometimes I want her to get caught but sometimes I don’t lol…Shelia/Kimberlin keeps it interesting.
I don’t see how Sheila keeps anything interesting when she’s essentially a two-dimensional character incapable of growth. I’ve seen enough evil smirking and heard enough maniacal laughing from her to last a lifetime. Moreover, the only way to keep her around is to make other characters behave stupidly because there’s no logical reason for anyone to want to have anything to do with her. The only reason she’s lasted this long is that they first threw Deacon under the bus for her and now they’re throwing Bill under the bus for her. For a while they threw Finn under the bus for her as well, but he thankfully came to his senses about her. Sociopathic characters who lack all empathy and all capacity for growth can work for short arcs, but at this point, Sheila’s current story arc should be over–and she should be have been put out of commission, ideally permanently, so Bell would be forced to develop a villain who isn’t so sociopathic that the character could be long term.
I have hated Sheila for years… way back from her Y&R days. But, I have to give credit where credit is due. Sheila’s evil is making this show and these characters way, way more interesting.
Well, looks like she will be staying because there is not shortage of that lol
The woman is so violent I’m wondering how any of her victims won’t shoot her on sight. She allowed to walk in their home and spew her venom and be on her merry way. Dumbing other characters down is right.
Yeah, it’s always such an lol laugh riot when other characters have to be written increasingly stupidly so a two dimensional villain who’s long past her expiration date can be kept around to smirk and laugh evilly because Bell somehow believes that’s “dramatic.” It’s not–but it is probably painfully easy to write for Sheila because she never grows or changes or has any real personality past her sociopathy, so there doesn’t have to be any real complexity to her character at all. And, of course, if Bill has to be crazy, too, so she can stick around a while longer, it’s not a big deal to treat mental illness (x 2, since Sheila is, and always will be, sociopathic) as nothing more than a plot point. Not in Bell’s world anyway.
If you can make sense of any of this ridiculous storyline, p,ease let me know how….
I have no idea.,the w hole thing is so beyond stupid, it will probably make sense one day….I can’t think of anything else to say about it…
I was getting so bored with Sheila hanging around when she knew Finn didn’t want anything to do with her. She is annoying, but at the moment I tolerate her smirk and laugh because I want to see how this storyline with Bill plays out. It’s dragged on a bit too long now, though. I think there should be a reveal so we find out what lead Bill to the conclusion that hooking up with Sheila was a good deal.
If Shelia’s nine toes doesn’t give Bill pause I don’t know if he can be reached. Just looking at her foot with the missing toe that she cut off herself would give me the creeps.
Sheila is a true villainess, BUT, she can always justify her actions (to herself) so instead of pure evil, she demonstrates in her twisted way that she is capable of love (in her own way). She would do anything for her son and grandson–she’s like Stephanie in the sense that Stephanie always doing really evil acts but it was always based on her love for her family (usually her golden boy Ridge).
Sheila absolutely would not do anything for her son and grandson. When she told Finn that she would, he responded by saying, “Then turn yourself in.” Her response was that it wouldn’t serve any purpose to turn herself in because she wasn’t a danger to them. Earlier, when Finn begged her to take him to a hospital and to let him call Steffy, she repeatedly refused to do either, though certainly both would have been in his best interests and Hayes’. Finn has made it abundantly clear that he doesn’t want her to have anything to do with him or his family. She has refused to back off. She continues to blame Steffy for having shot Finn and Steffy–and speaking of that, after she shot Finn, she offered him no medical assistance, even though she has had nurse’s training and did not call 911 when Steffy called out to her to do so as she went to Finn’s side. In fact, she shot Steffy when Steffy attempted to call 911 for Finn. As a sociopath, Sheila isn’t capable of empathy, which means she isn’t capable of love. Stephanie was capable of empathy, even with people who were more frenemies than friends, such as the first Sally Spectra, and others considerably different than herself, which was shown in her story about homelessness. Sheila only befriends people in order to use them because she is solely concerned with herself as all sociopaths are. She also has quite a number of other children and grandchildren, who, by Sheila’s own admission, want nothing to do with her, and she is unconcerned about doing anything to re-establish relationships with those children or grandchildren. The only reason she’s so hyper-focused on Finn and Hayes, the only reason she suddenly was interested in Finn, is because of her obsession with the Forrester family. That was made clear in her dialogue/monologues when she initially returned to the show. There’s no comparison between Sheila and Stephanie because, while Stephanie may have done a lot of things that were far from admirable, she was not a sociopath. She was capable of empathy and actual love and concern for others. There were actually stories about that. No story about Sheila has ever been about her being concerned about anyone other than herself, and this one is no exception. There are villains who can show genuine concern about others, those villains aren’t sociopathic. Sheila is, and always has been, sociopathic. Strip away her sociopathy, and you rip out the basis of the character entirely. Beyond that sociopathy is very rarely even contained, much less cured, and when it is, it’s generally in someone much younger who hasn’t four (or possibly more) decades of sociopathic behavior.
I think I read somewhere that someone from Bill’s past will play a part in determining Sheila’s future. Maybe this is the big reveal that you are hoping for. IMO, if Sheila’s going to keep hanging around, they need to use her to make everyone’s life miserable and not just Steffy’s and Finn’s lives.
IMO, if Sheila would “do anything” for her son and grandson, she would respect Finn’s wishes and leave Finn and his family alone. So, nope, I’m not buying it.
Li is more like Stephanie. Sheila is nothing like Stephanie imo.
Sheila a nurse didn’t bother trying to administer any medical help for her son and shot his wife to prevent his wife from calling an ambulance to save his life. How does that translate into Sheila would do anything for her own son?
Li would do anything for her own son including risking a prestigious career, her medical license, her life.
Sheila will do whatever it takes to preserve her own life and fulfill her own desires at the expense of her own son.
I hadn’t thought about it before, but you’re right. Li is more like Stephanie in the respect that she may make questionable decisions, such as not letting Steffy know Finn was alive, but she is willing to do things that may be costly to her for the sake of those about whom she cares. Sheila simply doesn’t have the ability to do that because she utterly lacks empathy.
Exactly. Sheila has no capacity to understand, let alone respect another person’s wishes.
Yeah, you’re right–she is self-serving and she always comes first–but I do think she’s more complicated than just being an out and out villainess.I believe she really wants to connect with her son and grandson. I think she wants acceptance.
Taylor said today that she’s untreatable because she doesn’t see anything wrong with her actions–she does always have excuses and blames everyone else for her heinous crimes.
I was glad to see Deacon back today!
I watched Sheila connect with her son, I mean control her son, while she held him captive. She wanted to connect with him so badly she kept injecting him with tranquilizers until he agreed to submit to her terms of what she wanted.
There is one thing that I wonder if the writers will explain to us … where is all the money coming from that Sheila had while she was living at Deacon’s, before she ran into Bill on the beach? We now know Bill wasn’t the one funding her, so who was and will that funding continue now that she’s taken up with Bill Spencer?
Shelia has always been able to attract rich men. Remember she managed to snare Eric and Massimo so it is not too far fetched to think that Shelia found herself a rich sugar daddy to marry her and then after he made her his heir then she offed him.
Man, this got to be the dumbest story line ever!!! For one, if I was Steffy I would tell Billy Boy, not to long ago my brother kept you and your son from going up the river. Two, prove that my mother shot you and oh yeah remember when you blew up a building with your son and Sally in it!!!
