'Y&R' Speculation: Michael Returns the Favor – Sends Ashland to Jail?

Young And The Restless speculation implies Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) will have his revenge. When Michael was in Peru to dig up dirt on Ashland Locke (Robert Newman), he landed in prison. 

Naturally, Michael assumed Ashland was behind his capture. Luckily, he was able to escape and return to Genoa City. However, Michael holds a major grudge against Ashland.

Michael and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) conspired to get Ashland to leave Genoa City. Michael was the one who drew up the restraining order, which prohibits Ashland from seeing Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez). 

Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) served Ashland, but Victor was the driving force behind the restraining order. That stunt pushed Victoria Newman Locke (Amelia Heinle) to reconcile with Ashland. 

Y&R spoilers for the week of June 13 to 17 reveal that Victoria and Ashland will plan a move to New York City. Will the Locke-Ness monster make a clean getaway on Young And The Restless?

Y&R: Michael Gets Even?

Victoria Newman has thrown her family into turmoil by going back to Ashland Locke. Moreover, she has announced that she is leaving Newman Enterprises and cutting ties with them. 

To make matters worse, Victoria plans to leave Genoa City to start a new life with the man she loves. Young And The Restless speculation teases that Victor Newman will take drastic measures to keep Victoria and Ashland apart.

Michael Baldwin has his own vendetta against Ashland. The two could conspire to take Locke down once and for all.

Michael could use his legal expertise to find a way to convict Ashland of a crime. The lawyer would get great satisfaction at seeing him behind bars. Victor could even persuade Michael to frame Ashland. 

The Mustache might consider kidnapping Ashland to keep him from Victoria. Perhaps Michael would assist Victor. After all. Michael wants Ashland to pay for all he has done on Y&R.

Will Michael Have the Last Laugh on Young and the Restless?

There has been no indication that Victoria or Ashland are leaving the Young And The Restless canvas. Therefore, it is likely that Victor will come up with a plan to make his daughter stay. 

Victor could be angry enough to take Ashland's life. But he would be the number one suspect. Michael would have his hands full representing Victor.

Yet if Ashland were to vanish or go to jail, Victoria would blame her dad. Since Victor's main objective is to keep Victoria and Ashland apart, would he risk a permanent rift with his daughter? 

Michael would also be taking a risk. If Ashland suspects Michael is working against him, he could retaliate. Michael has first-hand experience with being Ashland's target on The Young And The Restless.
