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!
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?
Sheila and Abe celebrate at the pub but Abe doesn’t like the way things went down at the press conference. Sheila has no qualms about Trask going down after the stunt she pulled, highlighting the fact Sheila messed up with Xander.
Abe finds Sheila courageous to step up for him, taking full responsibility for her mistake. He thinks she’s been doing better at her job. She’s been trying. It’s the first time she had a job she respects which is why she is angry at Trask.
Abe is happy to hear this. They hold hands and Abe breaks away to call Val. Sheila smiles to herself thinking about Abe.
Would a romantic unison between Abe and Sheila work out?
