Soap Opera Digest caught up with Melissa Reeves on her first day back at Days of Our Lives.

"It was the best day ever," gushes Melissa Reeves. "I did not sleep last night. I just tossed and turned, 'cause I kept going over my lines. I just thought, 'I don't want to go in tomorrow and forget a line.' That would be so horrible and unprofessional."

On Missy's first day back, she worked with Peter Reckell and Kristian Alfonso. She says it felt like she never left. "It's the weirdest thing. I've been gone for three-and-a-half years, but walking in here, I felt like I hadn't been gone at all. This show is such a huge part of my life." She considers this return a huge gift.

Melissa confesses that she thought her days at Days were over for good when she left the show three-and-a-half years ago. "I really never thought I'd walk through those doors again," she admits. "I just think as you get older, maybe your character isn't needed as much. But I've had such a great life here. Walking around here and being older, I appreciate everything differently. It's a blast."

Unfortunately, the reason Jennifer returns to Salem is a sad one. "It's great to be back and sad at the same time, because the whole storyline is about Frances passing. We need to boo-hoo over her for a while. It's going to be a rough couple of days..."

As for how long she'll stay in Salem, Missy teases, "I don't know. It's sort of in their ballpark. I love it and I'm definitely open to working. Emily's going to be here in CA going to College. Scott's at GH. I might as well do something..."

Missy's first airdate is June 9th.
