Days of Our Lives (DOOL) spoilers tease that Valerie Grant’s (Vanessa Williams) future with Abe (James Reynolds) looks bleak. They recently quarreled over her new job offer, which meant moving back to Washington, D.C. Valerie had a chance to be the chief of staff at her old hospital, so she just couldn’t pass up that opportunity.
Abe was upset at first, but he eventually realized he shouldn’t prevent Valerie from following her dreams. Of course, Abe can’t just pack up and leave with her. He’s the mayor of Salem! That’s why Abe and Valerie plan to try a long-distance romance. Unfortunately, that probably won’t work out for a couple of reasons.
For starters, Vanessa Williams’ last contract episode aired on November 21. It doesn’t seem like DOOL has anything in mind for her moving forward. Days of Our Lives spoilers suggest that Valerie may have a scene or two down the road, but that could involve the end of this relationship.
It’s easy to imagine Valerie meeting someone new or at least deciding she wants to. Since Abe will remain at Days, he deserves to move on. In fact, there’s already strong buzz about who his next love interest will be.
Days of Our Lives spoilers say we could see a classic hate turns to love story. Sheila (Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins) has been getting on Abe’s last nerve, but she recently gave him some good advice, too. She’ll keep finding ways to intrigue Abe and pull him closer, so they just might become an item.
Eli (Lamon Archey) and Lani (Sal Stowers) are moving toward a romance of their own, so Sheila might as well hook up with Abe. It’s not like Eli sees Sheila as more than a friend. Plus, this could cause a little conflict for Lani and Eli. There’d be some fun drama, but they’d both find a way to be supportive. As long as Abe and Sheila are happy, that’s all that matters!
It’s possible Valerie will shake things up for the new duo at some point, but the show seems done with the character. A return trip probably wouldn’t bring anything substantial. Days has never written much for Valerie, so the decision to get rid of her makes sense. Use ‘em or lose ‘em has to be the soap motto!
What do you think about Valerie’s departure? Will you miss her or would you rather see that airtime used for more important characters? Are you rooting for Abe to find love with Sheila? We’ll give you updates as other Days news comes in. Stay tuned to DOOL and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Days of Our Lives spoilers, updates and news.
