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?
It only seems like yesterday when Sheila Watkins (Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins) was hired to officiate a marriage – she was in the middle of the Bonnie Lockhart (Judi Evans) marriage to Victor Kiriakis, before it came to a sudden halt!
Well, her priceless services are needed once again in Salem, this time by Sonny (Freddie Smith) and Leo (Greg Rikaart)!
Leo is hell-bent on getting Sonny to marry him, or else he’ll go to the press and tell all about how Sonny “killed” him and covered up the crime with Will (Chandler Massey). The scandal would put “WilSon” in a world of legal trouble, and it would cause Titan to take a major financial hit.
So, Will and Sonny will decide that Sonny should go forward with the wedding to Leo. It obviously won’t be what either of them want, but they’ll feel that they have no choice. Sonny will reluctantly plan the wedding, wishing that there was some way out of the whole mess.
Of course, they’ll need someone to officiate. Justin (Wally Kurth) refuses to do it since the wedding involves Leo, or else Sonny just won’t be able to bring himself to ask his dad to do it.
Abe (James Reynolds) will be out of the running, too, but apparently there will be one individual who will be available…Sheila!
Sheila agrees to marry Sonny and Leo. The ceremony takes place back in the Kiriakis mansion, much to Adrienne’s disappointment!
Love is in the air for Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers). After Sheila (Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins) fans the flames of jealousy, Eli will confront Lani about her feelings for him. Sheila will imply that she had sex with Eli, which will leave Lani fuming and wondering what she really wants.
Lani ends up kissing Eli passionately, so it’s easy to see where things are headed. Accepting how she feels is the first step toward a real relationship.
Meanwhile, Abe (James Reynolds) will get some difficult updates from Valerie (Vanessa Williams). It’s doubtful she’d be bailing on their long-distance plan already, but she might cancel a flight home or a date to meet in the middle.
Abe is left to be in a terrible mood, so there’ll be even more tension than usual when Sheila arrives.
Sheila tries to do the right thing and surprises Abe with a gift – his organized paperwork – but he doesn’t take too kindly to her helping hand.
Abe eventually lashes out at her, but Sheila probably won’t sweat it. She knows how to handle Abe and anyone else she encounters in this town!
Stay tuned to find out if they will ever get along and if Valerie is ever returning to Salem!
