[WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD]
Will Horton becomes the third victim of Necktie Killer.
"All the characters who have fallen victim to the serial killer, none of it had to do with problems with the actor or personality," Wilson explains. "It was all purely business, and it was all in an effort to revitalize the show and create story space to bring back some iconic characters like Bo and Patch."
Wilson says "the writers elected to move away from the storyline I was in and refocus on the storylines that were really popular for this show in years past."
The actor believes "all things come to a close" but was "sad to know that this wonderful period in my career was coming to a close."
