The black sheep of the Kiriakis family is back. Paul Telfer resumes his role as Xander Cook on Monday, April 29. Not surprisingly, the character is immediately up to no good — this time with Giles Marini’s Ted.
Vanessa Williams returns as Dr. Valerie Grant on Wednesday, May 1 to attend her long-distance beau Abe’s (James Reynolds) final mayoral debate.

There’s also a big exit on the canvas. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins is leaving the soap as Sheila Watkins on Thursday, May 2. The actress is set to star in the new season of hit reality show Growing Up Hip-Hop Atlanta on WeTV.
