Before Rachel tells Shaun, he's shot in the head on bodyguard duty for the Cramer family. Greg performs successful trauma surgery on Shaun, who goes into a brief coma. After tests, Greg determines he left a bullet fragment logged in his brain. Devastated, Greg vows to never perform surgery again and recommends Matthew to a Seattle-based surgeon. Matthew soon agrees when Greg agrees to supervise the procedure.

Greg prepares to leave for the Seattle to observe the surgery with Rachel in tow, angering his mother Phylicia who was aware of Greg's affair with his brother's girlfriend. After Mrs. Evans confronts Rachel, she goes on a date with Shaun where she reveals herself not to be in love with him. Shaun senses the bond between Rachel and Greg and asks if they are romantically involved Greg, a question Rachel dodges. Later, Rachel tells Greg she didn't want to pursue a relationship with Greg for fear of hurting Shaun. Shaun sees them kiss and lashes out at them, warning Rachel that Greg would eventually bore of her and move on to the next woman. After much begging from Destiny, Shaun asks Greg as a brother to perform help in Matthew's surgery, and he obliges.

When bottle of Oxytocin goes lost at Llanview Hospital, Greg tells Rachel who insisted on Schuyler's innocents. Greg and Rachel soon break it off after Rachel relentlessly defends Schuyler, and she leaves Llanview for Chicago.

Greg and Téa proceed for months with chemotherapy, but to no avail. As Téa's mental condition apparently deteriorates, Greg suggests Téa die in privacy at a hospice in St. Kitts. It soon becomes clear Téa wasn't suffering a brain tumor but that Greg drugged her after being ordered in a blackmail by Elijah "Eli" Clarke (Matt Walton) to do so and kill her.

Todd (Trevor St. John) and Téa's daughter Danielle Manning, arrive to see their dying loved one only for Greg to tell them she'd already died. Feeling guilty, Greg reveals he moved Téa to a clinic in Cherryvale, Pennsylvania to hide her from Eli. After Téa awakes from an induced coma, Greg lies and tells Téa she had be miraculously cured. Greg soon returns to St. Kitts greeted by Eli, who he finds him unconscious with a pool of blood beneath his head.

Eli became aware that Greg had survived and attempted to kill him by drugging him, but is stopped by Dr. Vivian Wright (Kearran Giovanni). Wanting to come clean, Greg reveals to his parents his desire to truth to reveal Destiny's paternity to she and Shaun.

As they all stood together, Greg's parents Phylicia and Richard Evans (Frankie Faison) revealed her to be Greg's daughter. They soon divulge backstory that after Greg began medical school, he'd had gotten a girl named Charlene pregnant but he however did not want the child, so Phylicia and Richard agreed to raise Destiny as their own child. At the time of conception, Charlene was Shaun's girlfriend and it is uncovered Greg killed Charlene after a confrontation, disposing of the body.
