Young and the Restless spoilers tease cracks in Victoria Newman's (Amelia Heinle) marriage to Ashland Locke (Robert Newman). Y&R spoilers for February suggest that Ashland is hiding a major secret.
It is tied to the Peruvian clinic where Ashland received his lifesaving medical treatment. The same clinic that Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc) is currently visiting. Michael is in South America investigating the Locke-Ness monster on Victor Newman's (Eric Braeden) behalf.
Victor began to have doubts about his son-in-law after his miraculous recovery. Not that Victor ever fully trusted Ashland to start with. So the Mustache did some digging into Ashland and discovered that he had ties to the clinic.
Ashland funded the clinic long before he received treatment there. Victor had Ashland's back against the wall. When Newman questioned Ashland choosing that particular clinic, he had all the right answers. However, Victor was not fooled on The Young and the Restless.
Young and the Restless: Ashland Comes Clean?
Ashland admitted that Victoria had no idea that he funds the Peruvian clinic. So Ashland was shaken when he left Victor. Locke ran straight to Society for a stiff drink.
It did not help when Ashland learned that an American was asking questíons about him in Peru. Ashland told his caller that they should proceed as planned. However, Victor has Ashland rattled. So Locke will try to head Victor off at the pass.
Young and the Restless spoilers for the week imply the Lockes may not have such a happy Valentine's Day. Ashland will be compelled to confess to Victoria. Will Ashland tell the truth?
Perhaps Locke will tell the same lies that he spewed to Victor. It worked before. When Ashland was backed into a corner before their wedding, he came clean with his bride-to-be. Victoria defended her groom and married him anyway. Yet, this latest secret may be the beginning of the end for this power couple on the CBS soap.
Victoria Is Done on Y&R?
What other dirt can Michael dig up on Ashland? What if Locke has used this clinic to fake an illness before? Maybe the ploy worked so well that he used it again on Victoria. There is no doubt that Victoria would kick Ashland to the curb if this is his game.
Ending things with Locke may be tricky. After all, the couple's lives and businesses are enmeshed. Victoria would have to keep a level head to oust Ashland. Moreover, Victoria would need help. Victor would be the best partner to take Ashland down on The Young and the Restless.
