'Young and the Restless' Predictions: Ashland's Days Are Numbered and Bleak?

Young And The Restless spoilers suggest Ashland Locke's (Richard Burgi) days are numbered. Ashland has been getting chemo treatments in the hopes of prolonging his life. Sadly, he learned the treatments were not working. 

Ashland broke the bad news to his wife, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle), who was very supportive. Consequently, Locke will get a second opinion from Dr. Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic). Y&R spoilers predict that Nate will confirm the bad news. Ashland may only have a short time left to live.

Ashland and Victoria will be hit hard by this latest medical update. They had a beautiful wedding in Tuscany and were looking forward to whatever time they had left. However, they were hoping for more. 

Now it seems that Ashland may only have weeks left. The couple went into this marriage knowing Ashland's condition was terminal. Now that they know the groom's health is declining, will they make the most of the time they have left?

Young and the Restless: Victoria Makes Ashland's Time Special?

Victoria planned an extravagant, romantic honeymoon for her new husband. They may proceed with their plans. After all, Ashland would want to spend every minute of his life with Victoria. 

Being in a paradise would make every day special. Young And The Restless spoilers tease that Ashland's condition will be touch and go in the upcoming weeks. Will he be able to enjoy the honeymoon that Victoria planned?

When Ashland initially revealed his illness to Victoria, she stood by him. He had no plans to have chemo until Victoria convinced him. Ashland wanted to extend his time with the woman he loves. 

However, Ashland had secrets that tested Victoria's resolve to marry him. In the end, Victoria stood by her man. Ashland loves and appreciates his wife. Even though he knew he had an incurable disease, learning that there is such a short time left would be devastating for the happy couple on Young and the Restless.

The Fallout of Ashland's Dying on Y&R

Victoria will not be the only one sad to lose Ashland. Little Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez) will lose a father. Hopefully, Ashland will have time to say goodbye to his son.

Even before Ashland's past life was exposed, there were reservations about Victoria marrying him. In particular, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) were concerned about Victoria's commitment to a dying man.

They could only see heartache ahead. Although Victoria will indeed be heartbroken, Ashland could leave her extremely wealthy and powerful.

Nevertheless, there are always twists and turns on The Young And The Restless. Many fans of the daytime soap have been suspicious of Ashland. They believe he is plotting against the Newmans and is faking his illness. 

Will the Locke Ness monster live? Or will Victoria grieve the loss of Ashland on the Young and the Restless? Check back with Showbiz Army daily for more spoilers.
