No two ways about it: Here comes trouble.

The Bold and the Beautiful wasn’t kidding with that promo that all but told viewers to batten down the hatches because “the storm is coming.” (It’s super stylish; check it out below.) Now we know that the “storm” in question is Hurricane Deacon, in the form of Sean Kanan, who originated his role of Hope’s father more than two decades ago.

“Daddy’s back!” Instagrammed the actor a day before his first appearance on October 7. “So great to be home.”

Mm-hmm. But we have a hunch that few and far between will be the Logans, Forresters and/or Spencers who will be glad to see Deacon. Wherever he goes, trouble follows him as surely as his shadow does. Heck, he’s such an agent of chaos that he couldn’t even be contained on one show: Like Kimberlin Brown’s Sheila, Deacon has bopped back and forth between Bold & Beautiful and sister soap Young & Restless, leaving in his wake a trail of tangled bedsheets and broken promises.

(So might the fact that Kanan tagged Sheila in his Instagram post… can you imagine them as a scheme team? Shudder!)
