Patsy was just interviewed in a podcast the other night and seemed very open to returning for a recurring part, especially since logistics have changed and a lot of people now commute for taping. I think she's in a very different place than she was before, and it doesn't hurt that most of the people she had clashes with have moved along.

Gosh, I love them so much. I just hope fan reaction prompts the show to at least make them recurring on a regular basis and uses them as needed. If they really want the character of Jeannie T to work, she needs her parents around. And I miss all those relationships and family moments too. It's what really made the show so wonderful to watch once upon a time.
I really hope so too, because this return really worked well for all the characters and demonstrated how well Shane and Kim still can fit into the fabric of Salem.
I just can't hold out much hope. I always assumed Patsy's history with the show was a big obstacle to her ever returning for more than a few days at a time. Obviously, a lot of her problems were health-related, but after going through her either being fired or quitting three times (depending on which report you read) and each time necessitating hasty rewrites, I can see TPTB being reluctant to bringing her back in anything more than a day-player role. On top of that, she has moved to Florida, so the logistics might not work.
It's frustrating, because that also limits the possibility of Shane returning. Charlie has been pretty open about wanting to return, and he would be a welcome addition to Salem.
There's also Days' grueling taping schedule. With Patsy's back problems, could she do it?
Maybe recurring, but on contract, who knows?
