Neil Roberts was the father of Summer Roberts.
Life Before Season 1Edit
Dr. Roberts was married to Summer's mother until his daughter was 13 years old, when Summer's mother left for unexplained reasons. This was the same time that Luke Ward had his 13th Birthday Party at the same that Seth had his Bar Mitzvah. Summer had RSVP'd to Seth that she was going to come to his Bar Mitzvah but couldn't due to the family stress of the divorce. No one came to Seth's Bar Mitzvah as they all went to Luke's party. (1)
Neil Roberts is in one episode of the first season, he is the reason for a temporary break-up between Seth and Summer, as Seth embarrasses himself in front of Neil, and Neil doesn't see him as appropriate dating material for Summer.
Neil is seen only once, getting very cozy with Summer's new boyfriend, Zach Stevens , which devastates Seth when he discovers the three laughing at a table at the yacht club.
Neil is seen by the middle of the third season beginning to develop a somewhat cozy friendship with the (effectively) widowed and newly economically-challenged Julie Cooper, as he alludes to an unraveling marriage to Summer's stepmother. He eventually asks Julie to marry him.
After the death of Marissa, Julie becomes addicted to medication pills and Neil is seen by Kaitlin Cooper with his ex-wife (the so-called stepmonster). Neil and Julie break up. Neil moves to Seattle to work at Seattle Grace Hospital, but lets Julie and Kaitlin stay in his house.
