'Y&R' Spoilers: Ashland on Thin Ice – Newman-locke Merger at Risk?

Young and the Restless spoilers tease Ashland Locke's (Robert Newman) plot will unravel. Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) is close to proving Ashland faked having a terminal disease. 

Y&R spoilers for the week of February 21 to 25 reveal that Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc) discovers damaging information on Ashland. Michael located a doctor who was let go from the Peruvian clinic for asking too many questions. Baldwin will get the doctor to incriminate Ashland.

While Victor decides his next steps, Ashland will face more pressure. Young and the Restless spoilers for the week suggest Victoria Newman Locke's (Amelia Heinle) suspicions about her husband will grow. 

Vik will back Locke into a corner to get a confession. However, Ashland is cunning and has a ruthless reputation in the business. Locke may be able to handle Victoria, but Victor is a different story. Victor may be more than a match for Ashland on Young and the Restless.

Y&R: Will the Locke Name Vanish?

Victor was never thrilled with adding the name Locke to a company he built from the ground up. Now Victor has the evidence that Ashland lied about the cancer diagnosis. 

Ashland presumably conned Victoria into merging Locke Communications with Newman Enterprises. Yet, the merger was Victoria's idea. If Victor plans to reverse the merger, will Victoria's actions come into play?

Victoria believed Ashland was dying when she came up with the idea of merging companies. Of course, Vik thought it would benefit Newman Enterprises. However, Victoria also assured Ashland she would preserve his legacy.

Nevertheless, Ashland was miraculously cured. Now, he is raising red flags. The first person to become concerned was Newman COO, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). 

Victor now has evidence of Ashland's lies. Young and the Restless spoilers for the week suggest Victor will confide in Nikki. Will the couple work together to take Ashland down?

Can Victor Restore His Legacy on Young and the Restless?

Ashland has a checkered past when it comes to business. He took the identity of a childhood friend and got a job in media. Ashland also stole money from a deceased mentor to build his empire. 

Now Ashland holds a power position in Victor's company. It may not be so easy to remove Ashland or his name from the family business. Not to mention, Ashland is married to Victoria.

Ashland is savvy and may have taken steps to secure his place at Newman-Locke. Also, Victoria has forgiven Ashland's stunning secrets so far. 

Victor may have to rely on Michael's legal expertise to rid himself of Locke. How will it end when these business giants clash on The Young and the Restless?
