Malcolm brings Neil back to Geno City

"The Young and the Restless" has not mentioned Neil since Kristoff St. John passed away on February 1. Nor has anyone said where Mr. Winters went or why. Devon is caught up in his music business, Lily is in jail, and nothing has been said regarding the Hamilton/Winters group in quite a while. Soap Opera Spy is now revealing that Malcolm will be returning to Genoa City with his deceased brother’s body in tow.

Viewers want to know what happened to Neil but no one has from the show has given any clue surrounding the specific circumstances.

There is much speculation however that his death may be the result of an automobile accident. Considering this is how Devon lost Hilary and his unborn child, "The Young and the Restless" writers may consider something different. Kristoff St. John died of complications from heart disease and drinking, so those options may be out as well.

'Y&R' will handle Neil's death with dignity

One thing that is certain is that the new "Y&R" head writer is making decisions that are pleasing fans, so there is no doubt Neil's death will be handled with dignity.
