What started out as a hot romp between a disguised redhead and a sex-starved ex-con has turned into daytime’s most surprising supercouple: The Bold and the Beautiful’s Deacon Sharpe and Sheila Carter. They’ve got humor. They’ve got sass. They’ve got pizzazz. But, unfortunately, they’re totally doomed.

Deacon Sharpe: Playing with Fire

While Deacon (Sean Kanan) has turned his life around – bought Il Giardino, made peace with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang), and become a respectable citizen – it could all blow up in a heartbeat. If Hope and Brooke discover he’s shacking up with Sheila (Kimberlin Brown), the woman who’s terrorized the Forrester family for decades and not too long ago shot Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn (Tanner Novlan) and left them for dead, they’d be horrified. The two women, who’ve welcomed Deacon into the family, would likely shun him, destroying the happy personal life he’s worked so hard to achieve.

Bold and the Beautiful: Dangerous Attraction

Despite knowing all the above, Deacon can’t stay away from Sheila or resist helping her. He welcomed her into his home and kept her hidden when she was on the run from the police. And now that she’s a free woman, she’s secretly moved in with him.

It’s hard not to feel for Deacon. He seems so content when he’s with Sheila. They laugh and have fun together, and enjoy a pretty robust sex life. Sheila truly cares for and appreciates Deacon, too. He’s the person who’s stood by her through thick and thin, a man she can count on.

Deacon Sharpe: The End Game

When the pair are alone in Deacon’s apartment, sharing a meal or other happy moments together, you almost forget how not normal they are; that they’re actually a forbidden coupling who won’t be getting a happily ever after ending. They’ll have to settle for a lifetime of sneaking around in secret. They’ll never be able to have a real out-in-the-open relationship because if their affair is ever exposed, it will cost Deacon everything. But, in the interim, this surprise and totally doomed supercouple is a whole lot of fun to watch.
