The History of Sarah Roberts :

Tina became pregnant with Sarah in 1991, but was unsure who the father was because she was seeing Johnny Dee Hesser, son of Carlo, and had also slept with her ex-husband, Cord. She believed the child was Johnny’s, but reunited with ex-husband, Cord, who was willing to claim the child as his. When Jonny found out about the baby, he burst into Llanfair and tried to kidnap Tina. Because of his outburst, Tina’s sister, Viki, suffered a stroke and was left unable to walk or talk. She then developed disassociative disorder and killed Johnny. Tina became the prime suspect in his murder, but later was exonerated and Viki was cleared on self defense.

Tina went into labor while in Texas and gave birth in February 1991. Cord and Tina then remarried and returned to Llanview. In 1992, Cord was presumed dead, and Sarah and her older brother, C.J., become attached to Cain Rogan, their mother’s new boyfriend. In 1996, Tina moved to Baltimore with her kids, but returned briefly in 1997 to say goodbye to Cord when he left for London.

In 2003, a young woman named “Flash” appears in Llanview and befriends Joey Buchanan. It is soon made known that Flash is actually Sarah Roberts looking for C.J. and her mother, Tina. Sarah is terrorized and was almost murdered by the Music Box Killer in 2004. Cord arrives from London and takes her home with him.

When Todd disappears while looking for his kidnapped son, he later appears as hostage to a man named Hunter. Hunter’s girlfriend discovers Todd, and calls Blair and tells her where Todd is. Blair heads to Chicago, with Cristian and Rex. Blair finally recognizes the caller as Sarah Roberts. When Sarah is threatened by Hunter, Cristian and Rex take her back to Llanview. Sarah becomes Cristian’s temporary roommate. Later during a struggle between with Cristian, Hunter is stabbed and and dies.

Needing cash, Sarah takes a job as a waitress at Capricorn. Layla moves in with Layla. After Cristian gives Sarah the job as the booking agent, she immediately books a major talent, Timbaland, to perform at Capricorn on October 9, 2007.

During this time, Sarah and Cristian admitted to each other their feeling for one another, and the two became intimate. Carlo Hessor has Sarah kidnapped, and attempted to kill her after tying her to a raft heading over a waterfall. However, Sarah survived and she was reunited with Cristian and her mother Tina. Later, Cristian is taken by Carlo, but after they reunite, Sarah will leave Llanview.
