Y&R (1973-current) fans will never forget the haunting sight of Sharon (Sharon Case) putting Sage’s (Kelly Sullivan) baby Christian (Jamie and Alister Tobias) in her arms one last time as she died on Friday 6 January this year. Both women had found out that same day that Sage’s baby Christian’s death had been faked in July 2016 so that insane Dr Anderson (Elizabeth Bogush) could give him to her psychiatric patient Sharon (as baby Sully) after drugging Sharon and making her believe that she was pregnant. But Sharon is now being haunted by Sage in a different way.
Sharon, who’s still holding onto that dreadful baby-swap secret, has nightmares about Sage on Wednesday 1 and Monday 6 March. And it’s made worse by the fact that she’s stopped taking her bipolar disorder meds. Things really get scary on Friday 10 March when her daughter Mariah (Camryn Grimes), who is aware of the secret, realises that Sharon is walking around seeing Sage and she tries to make Sharon get help, only for Sharon to knock her out with a bookend, believing that Mariah is Sage.
The visions might go away if Sharon just owned up. But that would start a whole new nightmare – since Sharon’s husband Dylan (Steve Burton) believes that he’s the dad, Sharon believes that Sage’s widower Nick (Joshua Morrow) is the real father – and Sage went to her grave after telling Nick’s half-brother Adam Newman (Justin Hartley) that he was Christian’s biological father. “She feels she has to say the truth. But then she has always stopped from doing that, because she thinks: ‘How? How am I going to say the truth? What will be the fallout? When she goes to do it, she thinks that there is no way that she can,” explains actress Sharon Case. NB! See more on p31.
Oops – Sharon mistakes Mariah for Sage and knocks her out cold.
