Bold and the Beautiful: Deacon Sharpe, Bill Spencer’s New Plan to Keep Liam from Marrying Hope
Bill Spencer Bugs Hope’s Therapy Session
Last week, in his quest to keep Liam and Hope from marrying, Bill Spencer sent his assistant Alison to see Hope’s shrink Dr. Barton.
Of course, Alison’s emotional dilemma, being in love with her boss was contrived purely to do Bill’s bidding; bug Dr Barton’s office so that Bill Spencer could listen in on the doctors next appointment. With Hope Logan.
Deacon Sharpe Returns - 2014!
Look for Deacon Sharpe to return - on Friday 13 June 2014! From all accounts he'll be around for a while and making mischief with Quinn. Will it be romance or manipulation for this duo?
And learns about Deacon Sharpe – Hope’s Daddy
Conveniently, Dr Barton and Hope’s conversation veered into new and convenient territory for Bill. The Doctor raised questions about Hope’s feelings about her absentee father – Deacon Sharpe. A suddenly intuitive Hope realized that her concern for approval from her fans, her family and the press comes from never having had her biological father’s approval, let alone love.
Hope left her session with the idea planted that she needed to reach out to her biological father. By the end of the session, Bill Spencer wanted the same.
Deacon Sharpe is in Jail
Bill reveled in the new piece of information and decided Mr. Deacon Sharpe was the key to keeping Hope and Liam apart, even when Alison delivered that he was serving out a prison sentence. The news simply had him fuel up the corporate jet and drag Justin to Genoa City, Wisconsin.
On the flight to Genoa City Justin gave Bill the 40,000 ft view of Deacon’s history in Los Angeles and Genoa City, which included a rap sheet of petty crimes including art theft and forgery. Justin also noted that Deacon got around. Amber is raising his child, and Deacon was married to Bridget when he slept with Brooke, Bridget’s mother, and conceived Hope.
And that didn’t even touch on the reason he’s in prison, for subverting the course of justice in the investigation of Diane’s murder. Deacon, in love with Nikki, hit Diane over the head several times with a rock to make it look like someone much stronger than Nikki killed Diane).
How Does Hope Find Out?
Will Hope learn that it was Bill Spencer that brought Deacon back to town? Bet on it. How? Look for Justin to butt dial his son Marcus while Justin and Bill are discussion Bill’s latest plan. Look for Marcus to struggle with the decision to betray his father’s confidence or fill poor clueless Hope in…
The long wait may soon be over as Deacon Sharpe appears unexpectedly in Los Angeles this week (week of September 17, 2012!)
Will Bill Spencer be held to account for his actions? If anyone can take on Bill, Deacon can. Lets hope Deacon is around long enough to give it a shot!
Bill Spencer offers Deacon Sharpe a Deal
Deacon reluctantly agrees to Bill Spencer’s deal to get him out of prison – he wants to see his son. Bill informs Deacon it’s not his son he’ll be seeing but his daughter. Deacon doesn’t like what Bill wants of him but he doesn’t like the idea of 6 more years in jail so he agrees…
Meanwhile, disappointed with Ridge for not designing her wedding dress, Hope thinks again of her biological father Deacon. Brooke is horrified when she realizes Hope wants to find her father. Could she possibly want Deacon to give her away?
Who is Deacon Sharpe?
Deacon’s Arrival in Los Angeles
Deacon’s arrival on the Bold and the Beautiful was part of the Rick and Amber love story. Rick and Amber’s marriage fell apart when it was revealed that Baby Eric wasn’t Amber and Rick’s son, but Amber’s cousin, Rebecca’s baby.
Rebecca gave birth the day after Amber and Rick’s baby was stillborn. Tawny, Amber’s mother convinced a distraught Amber to take her cousin’s baby (Rebecca was going to give her baby up for adoption) and pass it off as hers and Ricks. The truth eventually came out and Rebecca took custody of her son.
Becky began dating CJ Garrison (Clarke Garrison and Sally Spectra’s son), but unbeknownst to her she was dying of pancreatic cancer. CJ proposed, but Becky learned the truth before her wedding. Becky died wanting CJ and Amber to raise little Eric together. Amber and CJ planned to wed when they realized they had feelings for each other.
Rick, however, was determined to stop the wedding, and located Deacon Sharpe, Little Eric’s biological father to claim the child. The Forrester’s offered Deacon $100,000 to sign over custody of the boy to them, but that never eventuated when Deacon became attracted to Amber and instead used the child to have her move in with him.
