Just how Brown's character is written back into the show's storylines will be a bit of a challenge. When last spotted on Y&R's sister-soap The Bold and the Beautiful
, where Brown appeared regularly from 1992 through 1998 and then sporadically from May 2002 through October 2003, Sheila was on the lam after killing Taylor Forrester. Taylor has since turned up very much alive, but Sheila still has a heap of legal issues dogging her.
In conjunction with Brown's return, The Young and the Restless is also bringing back Sheila's almost-son, Scotty Grainger. [Click here
