Salem is about to get some new residents as well as see the return of some old fan favorites. According to Soap Opera Digest, we are about to see some very happy returns as two Salem originals come home for awhile as well as a new lawyer coming on the scene.
Trouble for Sonny with newcomer Ted Laurent
The first new face DOOL fans are going to come across is the new lawyer Ted Laurent (Gilles Marini). He’s going to try and help Leo (Greg Rikaart) win his sexual harassment suit against Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) and Titan. SOD spoilers have also hinted that Ted may be catching the eye of one lady in Salem in particular.
Spoilers reveal that Kate Dimera (Lauren Koslow) will find herself drawn to the charismatic lawyer who makes his first appearance in Salem on June 5th. Kate hasn’t had much of a love life since Andre’s (Thaao Penghlis) murder and it will definitely be interesting to see how Kate reacts to a new man showing interest in her.

Shawn and Belle are back again
Two of Salem’s favorites will also be returning home. The question is for how long? Shawn Brady (Brandon Beamer) and his wife Belle Black Brady (Martha Madison) will be coming home to Salem for a while. Now seems like a great time for the couple to be coming home. Their daughter Claire (Olivia Rose Keegan) has just been dumped by her boyfriend Theo Carver (Kyler Pettis) after she asked him to fix The New Face of Bella contest. It seems like Claire can definitely use a healthy dose of parental guidance and support.
Ben Weston is back
Shawn’s mother Hope (Kristian Alfonso) could also use some support. She is still trying to sort out how she feels about Rafe (Galen Gering) and what she wants to do with their marriage.
Now she also has to deal with Ben Weston (Robert Scott Wilson) being released and the possibility that he is going to wreak havoc in Salem again, with Xander (Paul Telfer) running around who knows what is up his sleeve. Seeing her oldest son and his wife may be just what she needs to calm her rattled nerves.
What do you think? Will Shawn and Belle help Hope clear the cobwebs out of her life? What about Claire? Will seeing her parents help straighten her out? Will the new attorney help Leo win his case or will it be a bust?
