Marilyn Monroe, eat your heart out! (Did I just use the expression "eat your heart out"?) Sharon is the beautiful young love interest for Dan Cassidy. She isn't much of anything else. Though, she's cute enough so that it probably doesn't matter.
Frankly, I never quite understood what Dan saw in her. Dan was a pretty smart fella. I always imagined he might require someone a bit more...um...intellectually stimulating, you know? Surely Sharon was a wonderful girl, but highly intelligent she was not. Secretly, I always wanted to see an issue where Danny got together with Marla, but I suppose that was never meant to be. But enough of my sexism and fantasy. On with the show...
Though never explicitly said, we (or at least I do) assume that she and Danny met on the set of "Blue Devil: The Movie." Either way, it was there that the two fell in love, or as Dan described it, fell "head over heels." Though to be sure, at the very beginning, Wayne Tarrant, of all people, seemed to have something going with this particular blonde bombshell -- or at least he thought so. Too bad she always had the hots for the man in the Devil suit. But as long as we're talking about it, I might as well bring this up. Wayne, with the intention of getting Sharon alone, took her to an ancient temple on Ile Du Diable filled with all sorts of spooky artifacts and doors to other dimensions. Great make-out place, huh? It was through Sharon's curiosity regarding an unusual mask found on the ground, that the two of them accidentally unleashed the wrath of the mighty Nebiros.
But anyway, as I said, her fling with Wayne was exactly that. A fling.
She's a little flighty, but Sharon is a truly genuine soul when it comes down to it. After all, you have to give her credit for staying with a guy stuck in a 7 foot tall Devil suit. Don't you? She loves the man inside regardless of outward appearance. How many of you ladies out there could do the same? Though, truthfully, the Blue Devil is sort of handsome...in a blue devil kind of way, don't you think?
Sharon always felt incredible guilt over the fact that she was the one who released Nebiros, who consequently sealed Dan in the devil suit. It's kind of sad, really.
Throughout the course of the series, and presumably afterwards, as well, Sharon joined the Blue Devil on many adventures. She enjoyed excitement and hated to feel coddled. As she once said, she's "not a china doll." If you ask me, however, the woman was more trouble than she was worth. That sounds like an awful thing to say but Sharon never managed to stay out of trouble. Then again, neither could Cassidy, I suppose. In the end, however, the two love birds never held their faults against each other and they probably would have lived happily ever after if the Blue Devil hadn't died (though, of course, I like to pretend that never happened).
I've been told that I have underestimated Sharon and perhaps I have. I make her out to be a pain-in-the-neck bubblehead with nothing to offer the Blue Devil. That isn't exactly what I believe. When it comes down to it, I truly think she and Dan made a great couple for more reasons than one. She's a wonderful person with a child-like belief in the purity of her lover's soul and mind. In that sense, she had everything going for her and perhaps that's all anyone really needs. It's simply a personal preference on my part. I don't like nice girls, I guess.
