Drama in Days of our Lives is a guarantee.
Following the last episode’s cliffhanger moment, when Abe Carver seemed to make an advance towards Sheila Watkins after thanking her for her continued support, the happy moment didn’t last for long!
Abe had second thoughts, realizing he would be crossing professional boundaries, and instead tried to throw the blame onto Sheila for making a move on him!
Just in the nick of time, Eli Grant and Lani Price turn up at the pub, witnessing the kiss that almost happened, and preventing the two from exploding into a bigger fight.
While Lani sits with Abe to explain why she is currently in possession of baby David, Eli goes to the bar with Sheila to find out the truth about her friendship with Abe.
Sheila insists that she and Abe are not friends, and tells Eli how Abe attacked her for giving him some suggestions for his campaign.
Despite this, Sheila is sure that she knows what Abe wants; a woman that will stand by his side, since his ex-girlfriend Valerie left him to pursue her career.
Will Sheila turn out to be the woman Abe needs in his life?
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?
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!
