I don’t think there will be a dry eye in the house with this episode. St. John , from all the outpouring from cast and friends, was truly an amazing and special man. He will be missed by them.

His character will be sadly missed by all us fans who only knew him as Neil.

Godspeed

eeeessshhhh..
why do they have the need to bring on the morbid?
Kristoff is on his journey, hopefully, not just resting in peace going nowhere.

But- to bring the sobbing and all that depressing stuff on screen is not cool.
I won’t be watching that episode..

I’m glad that the show will remember Kristoff/ Neil; it’s what we do in life when loved ones pass. Some people make it low key by having graveside services. I want the show to truly memorialize Neil.

I love him as a actor, and I’m glad to hear that they’re going to have his creator pass on the show. May he continue to rest in peace.
