Kristoff died suddenly on Sunday, February 3, at the age of 52. Fans of the show were initially furious that it did not properly address his passing.

The show ultimately aired several episodes that allowed both costars and viewers to say goodbye to Neil’s character Neil Winters. Eileen, along with many others like Shemar Moore, returned to Y&R specifically for him.
