So the rumors were true, TionneT-Boz” Watkins did indeed return to her role as Sheila Watkins on the hit NBC soap Days Of Our Lives! We teased her return back in November 2019, which left fans of her character excited to have her back in Salem.

On this return, Sheila has a major announcement to make — she had a baby in her time away from Salem, and needs help to find the baby, which has been kidnapped. She needs her baby daddy to give her that help — so turns up at the door of Eli Grant (Lamon Archey)!

Eli is shocked to see Sheila back in town, and even more shocked to learn that she is claiming he is the father to her baby daughter. Lani Price (Sal Stowers) is also shocked, before Eli admits that it is a possibility as he had a one night stand with Sheila before she left town.

Episode # 13820

Eli makes some calls to his friends at the FBI and learns about a baby smuggling ring in Salem, which his new baby could have been a victim of. Meanwhile, we learn that Leo has arranged to have the baby snatched and attempts to sell her to Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) and Will Horton (Chandler Massey). Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) appears at the Kiriakis mansion with a little baby girl of color. He didn’t know the package would be a baby.

Sheila bursts into the room with Eli to rescue her baby and confront Leo for his actions. “Man, I can’t believe your bitch ass is behind this. And I thought the two of us were tight”, Sheila screams. Leo claims he didn’t know this was Sheila’s baby. Sheila continues, “But the only reason you dragged me to drag queen bingo is so you could kidnap my baby. And I lost 40 bucks. Don’t ever come near us again.” She and Eli leave with their baby.

Episode # 13820

Sheila and Eli break the news to Lani to announce they wish to be together to allow their baby daughter to have both parents together.

Lani detects something isn’t right about Sheila’s story, insisting they carry out a paternity test. Sheila quickly admits she lied and is immediately greeted by her new husband, Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian), the allegedly deceased son of Maggie Kiriakis. He claims that Sheila was pregnant before they met, leaving questions about who the father really was if it wasn’t Eli or Daniel.

They are then greeted by Lani’s father, Abe Carver (James Reynolds). Sheila quickly informs him that he indeed is the father to her child, and that he was conceived on her last day in Salem after his 2019 Mayoral Debate. “Come a say hi to your new daughter, Baby Sheila“, Sheila gushes. Abe is left speechless.

Episode # 13820

This all sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we fast forward to the final scene of the episode which aired on April 1st. Sonny walks in to find Leo in bed with his husband, which ends with Leo saying “April Fools!” to the camera!

That’s right, this unrealistic episode was a one off prank made for April Fools Day on April 1st. This also means that won’t be seeing Sheila return for a quite a while. However, stranger things have happened. Let’s hope she makes a genuine return to the show soon.

Love could be in the air in Salem this week!

Sheila Watkins listens to Abe Carver rant about Jack and Eve in the pub, thinking of Haley as some dangerous criminal. Abe is worried that Jack could win.

Abe thinks Jack is sharp and that he’ll twist his words. Sheila suggests Abe should fight back. Abe admits he compromised his integrity by allowing Ted to stay on as DA when he’s crooked.

Abe decided it was better than having a corrupt mayor. Sheila thinks Abe should bring up Jack being a rapist but Kayla’s his friend. He can’t, so Sheila suggests he play matchmaker with him and Jennifer.

Abe refuses, patronising Sheila and refers to her ideas as ‘colourful’. “So, I guess Law & Order Abe Carver doesn’t need advice from ex-con Sheila from the hood“, Sheila fumes, grabbing her bag and tries to leave.

Abe quickly jumps up to prevent Sheila from leaving the table, telling her how much he appreciates her support.

The pair share a moment gazing into each others eyes and move closer together.

Is this the sign of their friendship developing into something deeper?

Days: Sheila Resigns From Her Mayors Assistant Position

Abe finds it grim not having support for his debate since Val can’t make it. Sheila’s got his back. She believes in him. She gives him some tricks on what to say during his speech to increase his ratings.

Abe smiles and admits Sheila’s growing on him. Melinda appears and vows to win today!

Melinda snarks off about Jennifer being Abe’s campaign publicist and the moderator. Jenn is a journalist and knows how to be objective. Melinda doubts it but isn’t afraid of “liberal bias.” She goes and Eve and Jack appear.

Though Jack was squeezed out of the race, they came to watch. Jennifer opens the televised debate and Abe begins his speech. He feels honored to been serving.

During the speech, JJ and Haley watch and argue about why she is rooting for her sister. Haley knows her career is her world. Melinda purses her lips at the end of Abe’s speech and says horrific crimes have happened in the square, such as Marlena’s shooting.

As DA, they caught the perp but he’s free since he was able to walk into Mayor Carver’s office and delete the proof of the crime.

She blames Abe and he responds by taking full responsibility until Sheila steps up and blames herself then resigns!

Abe refuses to accept. “We’re only human. Mistakes happen,” he says. Melinda wonders if it was a mistake – citing that Sheila’s an ex-con. Abe fights back, saying Melinda prosecuted too many innocent people because she rushed to judgement.

He brings up the police officers’ endorsement while Melinda starts in on the thugs from another country who attacked Chloe. Eve steps up and talks over Jennifer to ask Melinda her stance on “illegal immigrants.”

When Melinda won’t answer, Jack jumps up and demands responses. Abe says that’s a federal issue and at home, JJ groans while Haley realizes he shared her secret.

Melinda answers that she takes a firm stance against it so Jack blurts that it’s interesting since her sister is one and lives in Salem.

Is this the last we’ll see of Sheila or will she change her mind and keep her job?
