Young And The Restless predictions suggest Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) is heading out of town. However, Locke's destination may not be of his choosing.
Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) revealed his mistrust of his son-in-law. To that end, Victor enlisted the help of Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc) to investigate Ashland. Victor is determined to protect his legacy, so he will do what he can to protect the company that he built.
It is also irksome for Victor to have the name Locke attached to Newman Enterprises. Y&R spoilers for the upcoming weeks tease Michael will hit pay dirt on Ashland.
Locke has kept a few secrets from his wife, Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). Those secrets nearly derailed their wedding. Even though Ashland assured Victoria there were no more secrets, he may have more up his sleeve.
Y&R spoilers for January imply that Ashland has been keeping a huge secret. Michael may be the one to take down the Locke-Ness monster on Young And The Restless.
Young and the Restless: What Is Ashland's Agenda?
Ashland came to Genoa City to sell a media division. While conducting business, he became close with Victoria. When Victoria learned Ashland was dying, she suggested they merge companies.
Victoria also rushed into marriage due to Ashland's impending death. Y&R viewers have long had suspicions of Locke's terminal condition. It turns out they may have a good reason.
Ashland may have targeted Victoria and Newman Enterprises. Victoria may have played right into his hands.
Young And The Restless predictions imply that Ashland has been faking his illness. Further rumors suggest that Locke will be carted off in handcuffs.
Perhaps Ashland believed that he would get away with yet another crime. After all, if he faked an illness for a business gain, that would be a fraud. It was foolish of Ashland to go up against Victor Newman on Y&R.
The Fallout From Ashland's Ruse on Y&R?
Victor will be safe in the knowledge that he saved his legacy. However, Victoria will be devastated and humiliated. Maybe Ashland will convince his wife to stand by his side.
On the other hand, Victoria may shun Ashland and side with Victor. Either way, Victoria will be put in a difficult position.
Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) may benefit from Locke's downfall. He may be vindicated when word of Ashland's nefarious actions becomes public. Even Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) may end up in Victoria's good graces. Victoria may see Nick was right to be suspicious of her husband. Plus, she will need her brother.
Victoria may be one of the few who will suffer if Ashland goes to prison. Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) may suffer some consequences as well. Ashland befriended the doctor, but it may have been part of his plan. It seems that Ashland will burn bridges on his way to prison on The Young And The Restless.
