Neil is back on The Young and the Restless (YR). But, so far, all he’s done is lecture Devon (Bryton James) on how to be a better dad – while cringing over the woman Devon has picked to be his child’s mom.
He’s thrown a benefit with Jack (Peter Bergman), helped him stay away from pills, and listened to Jack lament about how he doesn’t know who his biological father is.
He’s urged Victor (Eric Braeden) to take it easy and listened to him lament about how it’s sharper than a serpent’s toothto have an ungrateful child. Or children, in Victor’s case.
Those are all pretty noble activities. But they’re also kind of lonely. Does Neil (Kristoff St. John) need a new romance? Here’s how over 3,000 viewers feel about that:
My god, yes, 95% of you stuffed the ballot box. The handsome, kind, caring, successful man has been alone way, way too long.
Clearly, his relationship with Sophia has trickled down to merely co-parenting. And even if he wanted Hilary (Mishael Morgan) back – which he doesn’t, she’s busy manipulating his son.
Of women currently on the canvas, Neil and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) were once an item. He was there for her at a low time in her life. And Victoria is even lower now. She reunited with JT (Thad Luckinbill), who became abusive… so Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) killed him.
Victoria, Phyllis (Gina Tognoni), and Sharon (Sharon Case) helped her mom bury the body.
Yeah, maybe Neil should stay away from that mess….
Bring on someone new!
Playing the Field
Only a tiny 5% would rather see Neil remain single. But maybe that’s because Genoa City is such slim pickings these days. Besides, his track record with women is pretty bad, going all the way back to Dru, his brother, and the cough syrup incident….
