If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that Thanksgiving 2018 in Salem will be well remembered with Sheila Watkins in town on Days Of Our Lives!
At Doug’s Place, Julie and Doug prepare for Thanksgiving and Julie’s anxious for everything to be perfect. Sheila strolls in, introducing herself as Eli’s friend. Julie assumes she’s there to work and asks her to clean the spots off of the wine glasses and then rushes off, leaving Sheila puzzled.
Julie continues to give Sheila orders until Sheila asks for some respect. She’s the assistant to the DA. Julie had no idea. She didn’t know she turned down her job offer. They get in each other’s faces and Doug calms them down.
Eli, Abe and Val stroll into Doug’s Place and straightened things out with Sheila and Julie. Eli never told Sheila about the job offer because she had a better offer with Mayor Abe Carver. Eli apologizes for not relaying the news or telling her that Sheila was invited to dine with them.
Sheila baked Julie a sweet potato pie. Julie apologizes to Sheila and Sheila tells Abe she had his shoes cleaned but they were lost. There’s a sale tomorrow during Black Friday so they can pick up another pair. Abe fumes.
Later, dinner is served. Everyone joins hands and gives thanks for what they’re most grateful for. Doug is thankful for family, friends and Julie, then Julie says she’s thankful for Doug who keeps her young.
Sheila’s thankful she’s out of prison, “I mean the food. If a rat died…” Eli shushes her. She’s also grateful to her friend Eli. Abe’s thankful Theo survived the shooting, and for the wonderful woman sitting next to him.
Val’s grateful to have found so much happiness in Salem. Eli shares that Lani texted him and said she’s thankful for everyone’s support. Eli agrees, happy that everyone has been there for him. He loves them all. Julie cries.
They pray and eat and Val and Abe make-up. He is proud of her and they agree to try a long-distance relationship.
Sheila ends the evening insisting Eli take her home so she doesn’t have to listen to Julie and Bill singing in the kitchen any longer!
