  1. I appreciated his role on Y&R however, the story between Rey and Sharon is sooo boring. I hope his next character is exciting with a better storyline.

    1. I love Rey ! Young and the Restless lately always gets rid of fan favorites! I think pairing him with Chelsea would be interesting!

    2. have watched nick and Sharon for 30 years ,don’t like that they killed off Ray but if nick, Sharon, or Victor ever leave the show I will give up watching it ,,Victor is the show love his character when i was a kid watched him on rat patrol ,,great actor would like to meet him someday

  2. Why kill off Rey!! Y&R, what were you thinking!! Keep letting good people go and there won’t be a show to watch. There were so many possibilities for Rey, So sad you just kill him off. Very disappointed ☹️
