I’m not a fan of stories that repeat themselves, especially when it comes to super villains.
Mostly because it makes for lazy storytelling. You can do just about anything and blame it on Helena Cassadine or Stefano DiMera. And they never die (well, almost never), which just makes the stories they touch less and less believable.
But B&B has my attention with the return of Sheila Carter.
Frankly, I never imagined that Kimberlin Brown would ever return to either of the Bell shows. It had been over a decade since her last appearance, and her story had gone relatively off the rails before she left.
There was also that whole business with Phyllis being Sheila or Sheila being Phyllis or Why Does My Head Hurt This Makes No Sense, whatever that was.
And oh yes, the Republican National Convention appearance.
It didn’t enter my mind that she’d be back on either show. But I’m interested in seeing where this goes.
I’ve never quite “gotten” B&B as a show, but there are periods where I’ve tuned it, and it looks like I’ll have to check in on the new Spectras, too.
And of course, my blog post title is an obvious call back to another surprise return. Still and always my favorite.
