We first met Devon Hamilton in 2004 while he was helping to build Victor Newman's Rec Center. Growing up in and out of foster homes, Devon's jagged attitude toward the Walnut Grove kids was at an all-time high! At first when Devon met Lily Winters, he acted as though he too was rich and attended a private school on the other side of town. However, after Lily realized the truth, Devon began to warm up to her by filling Lily in on his 'real' life.
After Lily found out that Devon was going to be kicked out of his current foster home, she persuaded her mother Dru - who had also grown up on the streets - to get involved. While Dru's husband Neil wasn't too keen on the idea, Dru and Lily believed in Devon and took him into their home on a temporary foster basis.
In time, Devon told them about his childhood, growing up with a mother on crack and a father who left him as a boy. With the help of the Winters, he learned to read, write and handle all the expectations of a normal everyday life. After Dru started to go through the channels to make Devon's stay permanent, his social worker found out that Neil wasn't on board and scheduled to have Devon sent to a boy's home. Not wanting to go, Devon ran away and was later found sleeping at the Rec Center by Victor Newman. Victor stayed there with Devon until Neil gave in and arrangements were made for the Winters to be his permanent foster parents.
Everything seemed to be going well for Devon until no one remembered his seventeenth birthday. Remembering back to when he was a kid, Devon skipped school and went to the zoo. After he hadn't shown up at home that night, Lily's friend Sierra told the Winters about it being Devon's birthday and his mention that his grandma used to take him to the zoo. Darkness had fallen at the zoo and Devon found that he had wandered into a lion's exhibit and was trapped! Luckily, Lily's Uncle Malcolm was able to save him and pulled him out in time.
However, after Devon went with Lily to get the Winters car, Lily lost control and hit Neil! Badly hurt and needing surgery, Devon was encompassed with deep guilt and blamed himself for the accident. In the end, Neil was fine and Devon was able to let go of his guilt.
Feeling grateful for his new life, Devon sought out his mother and found Yolanda strung out on crack. He tried his best to help her start a new life, even convinced the Winters to take her in for a bit, but in the end, no matter what Devon did or who he had become, was enough to tear his mother away from drugs.
After starting college, Devon came down with meningitis and lost his hearing. With the Winters support and his will to learn to make the best of it, Devon successful underwent surgery for cochlear implants and by the miracle of science is now able to hear! During the ordeal, the Winters made him their son by legally adopting Devon!
However, in December of 2006, Devon faced his most difficult test yet when he became the prime suspect in the Carmen Mesta murder!
Devon had to deal with the news that the daughter his Aunt Tyra has been raising as her own, is actually his half-sister - her mother is Yolanda as well. Devon helped his new sibling, Ana, deal with the truth about her parentage, and they collaborated on music together. Soon, Devon had another shock - Tyra wasn't his blood relation. He ended up cheating on Roxy with her, which also hurt Neil, who was dating her. Devon eventually reunited with Roxy, and is currently pursuing a career in music, having signed a contract with McCall Unlimited to work on an album with Noah Newman.

At the hospital, Kyle wonders why the cabin kids went through his car. An officer appears to speak to Summer. They step away. Summer returns and announces they found Austin - for real this time.

They speculate that someone set it up to cover up the murder. The officer returns - Summer has to ID the body. In Hilary's room, she tells Neil that Devon was just collateral damage. Devon intervenes. "You're lying." Hilary insists it's the truth. Neil says she loved him - he saw sincerity. Hilary laughs. "You saw what you wanted to see." Devon protests that she doesn't mean what she's saying. Neil leaves. Devon asks her what the hell she's doing? He won't let her do this so he can salvage his relationship with his family. Hilary wants him to go and not come back ever. Devon knows what she's doing. Hilary insists he was a means to an end and calls him pathetic. Devon keeps arguing. Hilary mocks him cruelly. She tells him to run along before she calls security and tosses his ring at him. Devon stands outside her room in shock. In the chapel, Summer sobs. The others are still in the waiting area worrying about her. They wonder about Austin's family. Abby flashes to finding Austin at the Abbott cabin after Summer bought him the tie and drinking and kissing. Mariah realizes Abby loved him. Noah and Kevin whisper about Kyle, who has disappeared. They decide to analyze the blood on the towel. Meanwhile, Kyle joins Summer in the chapel - she identified the body. He flashes to seeing them all passed out in the cabin.

At the hospital, Jack awakens to Victor standing over him with a pillow - he seemed uncomfortable so Victor was going to put him out of his misery. They bicker. Victor baits Jack. He wants him to admit he lied to Phyllis. "You had sex with Kelly." Jack says it's none of his business. Victor muses that's not a denial. Jack is beyond irritated. Victor reminds him they have to work to help Phyllis. In the waiting area, Kyle tells Abby why he was at the Abbott cabin. Abby wonders how he slipped down a ravine and didn't get a scratch. Abby takes Kyle to Jack's room, and leaves. Victor says he doesn't fault Kyle for what happened at Newman and exits. Kyle tells Jack he came to meet Summer's husband. "But I guess I won't get that chance now." Jack asks why not. Kyle says he's leaving. Jack wants him to move back. Kyle won't commit. As Kyle goes, Victor returns and lets Jack know Kyle's been doing well in New York. Jack is irked. Victor suggests they try getting along. Jack flashes to their past fights. They'll be friendly enemies. In Hilary's room, Devon thanks Neil for saving their lives. Neil did it for Lily - if she weren't there he'd have let them all freeze to death. Neil has the ring Devon gave Hilary - it was what he saw on New Year's that gave him hope. Neil wonders where to send Hilary's things. Devon reminds him she almost died. Neil goes. Devon tells Hilary he's glad the truth is out. Hilary hates the way Neil looks at them. Devon suggests they leave town for a while - no one is going to forgive him anytime soon, if ever.
In the hospital waiting area, Kevin, Mariah, Summer, and Noah tell Abby they think Kyle may know where Austin's body is and show her the bloody towel. Abby says Kyle claimed to have fell in the ravine but didn't have a scratch. Kyle joins them and asks about his rental car. Noah wonders why he was at the cabin. Kevin asks why he had the bloody towel in his car. Kyle says he took one in the nose at his boxing lesson. They admit they can't find Austin. Kyle asks what really happened to him. Elsewhere, Neil tells Hilary the paperwork is done. She has something to tell him - she's always been that woman who first came to town bent on revenge. "I finally got what I wanted; to take down you and yours. Mission accomplished." She laughs at him as Devon listens from the door. "After what you did to my mother, I could never love you Neil, and I could certainly never love Devon." In Jack's room, he deletes Kelly from his contacts list. In the chapel, Victor enters the confessional and says, "Thank you for coming. My plan is working like a charm. Jack suspects nothing."
