Y&R spoilers indicate that a real-life friend of Kristoff St. John will be included in scenes next week. Stan Shaw has been cast to play the pastor residing over Neil Winters’ funeral. What an absolutely beautiful way to honor this special friendship. Y&R fans certainly won’t want to miss it.

Among some of the actors and actresses returning to pay their final respects to Neil, Winters’ brother Malcolm will return as of Thursday’s episode, and Shemar Moore will reprise the infamous role.

5. Siblings Re-united

Other members of Neil’s family will also return to the show, where his former love and mother of his son Sofia Dupre is set for a comeback next week, as well as Moses himself. Watching young Moses mourn the loss of his dad and be reunited with Devon and Lily is sure to get the waterworks going for most fans.

4. Other Character Returns

In addition, a slew of other familiar faces are set for next week, returning to town to attend Neil’s funeral. Along with the regular cast saying their goodbyes, characters Leslie Michaelson, Jill Abbott, as well as Ashley Abbott will be on the Y&R next week. Having said that, while Neil’s goodbye and funeral will dominate scenes next week, there will be a little drama outside of this storyline.

3. Unexpected Visitor

Speaking of “drama,” Jack will be paid a visit by someone unexpected next week. Could this be Ashley? The last time she was in Genoa City, she dropped a huge bomb on Jabot and Jackie, and with her rolling back into town, she may want to pay her bro a visit and see how he’s fairing in their recent corporate “challenge.”

2. Or Could It Be Someone Else?

This is the land of daytime drama, so anything is possible. While Ashley seems like the rational choice to surprise Jack, it could also be Jill who shocks Abbott with a visit. Or potentially, Kerry? Could she have come along with Ashley for the ride, and decide to drop in to see how her ex is doing while she’s in Genoa City?

1. Cane Looks To Mend Fences

Cane is desperate to reconcile with Lily and is not taking “no” for an answer. Nothing will change much next week in this regard. Y&R spoilers reveal that he’ll continue to look for Lily’s forgiveness, as she has to deal with her father’s passing. Here’s hoping Cane focuses more on her needs and honoring Neil, versus pressuring Lily to forgive him.
