Fans were heartbroken when news broke last month Michael E. Knight would make his “Young and the Restless” exit. Dr. Neville started out as a mystery man, but soon became a fan favorite.
Since the show confirmed Knight’s exit, we’ve been waiting to learn how Neville makes his Genoa City departure.
Rumor Has It…
Speculation began just days ago that Neville may become the genius doc who takes care of Max (Jared Breeze). The little man is a terrible state in the children’s psych ward, suffering from seizures and memory loss. His doctors actually believe he may not make it.
Neville is a well-known miracle worker. He brought Hilary (Mishael Morgan) back to life, and his latest medical trial garnered much success.
He’s a brain-healing genius and already has a soft spot or Max. When he discovers Max’s condition, he may not be able to turn his back.

Neville may be Max’s only chance of becoming whole again. It would also be a sweet way for Y&R to explain why Neville is leaving Genoa City behind.
What We’ll Miss the Most
Neville’s near-love affair with Ashley (Eileen Davidson) never came to be, but his good natured humor and gentle demeanor were qualities that fit well with Ashley’s kindness. Let’s just hope that if she can’t have Neville, someone new arrives to make Ms. Abbott happy.
