B&B: Victor May Thwart Adam's Plan

Victor Newman recently had a meeting with Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc). The pair met to discuss ways of getting rid of Ashland Locke permanently. 

Michael may accept the assignment. It may be dangerous and will also cause problems in his personal life. Young And The Restless spoilers for the week of May 16 to 20 reveal that Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman) will panic. After all, Michael disappeared the last time he tangled with Ashland. Not to mention that Victor's plans could interfere with Adam's schemes.

Ashland has made it no secret that he wants to win back Victoria's trust. For her part, Victoria is struggling with her feelings for Ashland. 

Adam plans to exploit the pair's emotions. When Adam ran into Ashland, he laid the groundwork. Adam implied that Victoria was holding a torch for the man she thought Ashland was. 

Sally also manipulated both Victoria and Ashland. She planted a seed when she told Victoria that Ashland has genuine remorse. When she ran into Ashland, she implies Victoria is pining away for him. Will Sally's manipulations work on Young And The Restless?

There is always the possibility that Adam could get caught. Victor is a smart man, and he always seems one step ahead of everyone. While Adam may think Victoria is not fit to run Newman Enterprises, Victor disagrees. 

Yes, Ashland threatened the Newman legacy. Still, Victor could decide to keep Victoria as co-CEO despite her status with Ashland. Will Adam overplay his hand on The Young And The Restless?
