What about Moses ? Neil and Sofia’s son.

Yes!yes! Yes! Especially Julia! She is so authentic and I unique in her own way. Watching her was magical!

It’s going to be odd to see Sofia and Malcolm interact, considering that Shemar Moore was not portraying the character when he was reintroduced and married to Sofia several years ago. I’m also curious about what happened to Moses, considering that we never see him on screen and he’s rarely ever mentioned. The same thing happens on B&B with Brooke and Nick’s son (who was carried by Taylor) Jack. Soaps seem to forget about the children of certain characters when it’s convenient for story purposes.

As for Neil’s romances with Sofia and Leslie, they never clicked. Dru will always be the love of Neil’s life, and aside from Ashley, no other woman in recent years has been anywhere close to the same level of connection. And yes, that includes Hilary, who was always better suited for Devon, because her entire purpose for coming to town in the first place was to destroy the Winters family. I never understood why they paired her with Neil.

It will be great seeing the ladies. These episodes will make Kristoff’s passing more real since I’m still in the “I can’t believe it stage.” Even if the all the returnees weren’t attending , and the show wasn’t having remembrance episodes, Kristoff’s death is still a final reality because God has made the ultimate call which none of us can rescind.

I’ve never heard of them..
Who or what they were is zero to me, as too many others.

I appreciate the care taken to honor Mr. St. John’s passing and his character of Neil Winters. Of course, the people in his life, including these women, should be included and would be expected. But I expect to see Moses or understand is absence. Y&R at various time has played fast and loose with its characters. Neil Winters suffered that fate too when he went dark and rogue, and seemed to get involved in these romances that went nowhere fast. I mean no disrespect to the actors. They are very good. It was misguided storytelling. Dru was his forever and always. Lily and then Devon were children he embraced and loved. (I will include Moses despite the lack of visible engagement.) He and his brother Malcolm (ibnt he person of Shemar Moore) were awesome together. Neil grew to be a forgiving and solid presence as is the evolution of a character. I look forward to these special episodes to say goodbye, and to see smart exciting story informed from Neil’s death. Along with the emotion of the moment, there is a business fortune to be distributed, and futures for survivors to navigate.

I dont understand an appearance of Julia Pace Mitchell who only had a one time thing with Neil, producing Moses.
I would rather have seen Nia Peoples who portrayed his second wife Karen Taylor, although she left him for sleeping with Devon’s mother. Neil certainly had his problems with the ladies. I understand Moses will return, being played by the same little actor. I don’t even remember the last actor to play Malcolm, as far as I am concerned it will always be Shemar Moore. That leads me to my next question of whether or not they will bring up the fact that he and Lily are actually father and daughter. There’s probably no point now, so far as there will be no ongoing SL involving Neil. Also looks like Lily is leaving for good. Cant blame her for wanting to get away from that yukky Cane. God, I hope they don’t pair him up with Tracey.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
