Things are heating in Salem!
Sheila Watkins (T-Boz) and Eli Grant (Lamon Archey) are missing in action at work, so the furious Abe Carver (James Reynolds) decides to fire her from her newly appointed role as his assistant!
Concerned about the whereabouts of the friendly twosome, Lani Price (Sal Stowers) wants to find out why they are missing at work and heads to Eli’s house — finding Eli half naked with Sheila walking around in her nightwear!
Lani see’s green and has a jealous rant at Eli. Meanwhile, Sheila leaves them to talk and confronts Abe at work to save her job. He doesn’t believe she was sick — until she is sick right in front of him… on his shoes!
Abe finally has some compassion for Sheila’s sickness and allows her to keep her job, reminding her to inform him in future if she is sick again.
Valerie Grant (Vanessa Williams) drops by to see Abe to reveal that she has landed her dream job — but she will have to move away from Salem! She suggests Abe join her or they will have to consider a long distance relationship.
Abe isn’t sold on Valerie’s proposal. Sheila offers Abe some of her own opinions on the subject, insisting long distance relationships don’t work and that Abe shouldn’t be selfish!
Time will tell if Abe and Valerie can indeed make their relationship work, or will they have to end it.
Will Sheila and Abe form a greater bond in Valerie’s absence?
