It’s hard to imagine that all connected to The Young and the Restless could have delivered a richer series of episodes that addressed the death of Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John). So the poll question obviously doesn’t ask about the shows themselves, as they were unquestionably outstanding. Instead, this query asks the fans how the episodes have impacted them?
The only hoped-for addition to the episodes would have included the great Victoria Rowell (Drucilla Winters) reprising her role in dream sequences. Drucilla could have spoken with Lily Ashby (Christel Khalil) and Devon Hamilton (Bryton James). However, Rowell’s inclusion in the April 29 tribute episode and in a special episode of The Talk, along with other St. John related media appearances and quotes she’s offered are all fully appreciated.
Y&R Cast Has Expressed Raw Emotion
The ending to the episode where Devon found Neil and later informed his family was supremely powerful. The organic nature of the scenes at the church, where Neil was laid to rest and honored, was nothing short of incredible.
Fans may not have been expecting to see such raw emotion from so many cast members. But they knew, in watching, that their longtime favorites weren’t acting.
Many cast members have and continue to offer public admiration for St. John. Social media affords so many open links for fans that didn’t exist prior to the current decade. The actor’s heartfelt proclamations enabled connected viewers to see true grief on the faces and within the words of the actors who worked through weighty, emotional scenes.
