Is the town of Salem ready for the return of it’s most loved former-felon?
Soap fans as well as TLC fans can breathe a sigh of relief, after having a hint of hope that Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins will be reprising her role as Sheila Watkins in the hit soap, ‘Days Of Our Lives’.
The great news was broke via a brief report on the soap website SheKnows on Nov 1. T-Boz last graced our television screens as Sheila back in May, when she voluntarily quit her role as Mayor Abe Carver‘s (James Reynolds) secretary to save his political campaign, following the kiss they shared together!
Although there are no concrete dates yet announced for her return, it is expected that she will be back on the show approximately in March.
As fans of the show know, ‘Days Of Our Lives’ is filmed 6 months in advance to the air date. With T-Boz expected to return in March 2020 means she will have began filming scenes for the show in September 2019.
Sheila has come a long way since her arrival on the show back in 2016, when she first appeared as a bad girl prisoner who gave Hope (Kristian Alfonso) hell when they were in jail together. Sheila wasn’t keen on having a cop as a roomie and gave Hope a couple of beat downs!
Things got a little heated this week on the hit, long-running NBC soap, Days of our Lives!
Whilst digging the dirt on Mayor Abe Carver‘s opponent, Jack Deveraux,Sheila Watkins makes light of the fact she almost kissed her boss.
With Abe not completely dismissing the idea, Sheila leaned in and gave Abe a quick kiss — just to reassure herself that there was absolutely no chemistry between them!
“You’re not my type and you’re old enough to be my Dad!”, Sheila jokes. “You dress like him, too.”
Just as they agree to pretend the kiss never happened, Abe’s girlfriend, Valerie Grant, returns on the scene to surprise him with her support.
Unfortunately for the two, they were being watched by Jack, and he used this friendly encounter against Abe to smear his campaign to maintain his position.
Abe yells that Jack’s allegations are baseless. He’s not having an affair with Sheila. Val defends Abe and Jack grins as he reveals the photo of Sheila kissing Abe.
Everyone gasps. Sheila calls it a fake but they go on about how dishonorable Abe is. Abe reluctantly admits the photo is real and Sheila tells Val she can explain it. Val takes off as the press hounds Abe.
He races after her while Sheila says there’s nothing between them and takes the blame for initiating the kiss.
Val and Abe have a heart-to-heart in the park. Abe explains and apologizes. She accepts but they both agree to part ways, and kiss each other goodbye.
Sheila appears just as Val leaves, and decides that she too will be leaving Salem, and quits her job as his assistant to help save his reputation and mayoral position.
Abe pleads with her to stay — he needs her input to reach his full potential. But Sheila has made up her mind. She thanks him for all he has done for her and leaves town.
This is currently Tionne’s final scene for the show, as we reported last week. I doubt this will be the last we see of the feisty Sheila Watkins. Stay tuned!
