The Young and the Restless spoilers for Tuesday, April 23 promise a tragic day in Genoa City nobody ever saw coming.
Devon learns Neil has died, and the news spreads through the rest of town like wildfire. Plus, Victor makes an announcement. Way to only think about yourself, Vic!
Mask Of Tragedy
Neil (Kristoff St. John) has been a mainstay on the Genoa City canvas since 1991. He — or rather St. John — went from a Younger Leading Man Emmy winner to a Supporting Actor MVP to the patriarch of his own soap family.
