'Y&R' Spoilers: Is Nate's Loyalty With Victor or Ashland?

Young And The Restless spoilers tease Dr. Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) will be forced to choose. Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) landed on the wrong side of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). The Mustache became suspicious of Ashland's terminal cancer diagnosis, so he sent Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) to investigate. 

Y&R spoilers for the week of February 21 to 25 reveal Michael will dig up incriminating information on Ashland. Naturally, Victoria Newman Locke (Amelia Heinle) will need proof of Ashland's deception.

Ashland had kept secrets of his shady past from his wife. Still, Victoria has been a staunch ally of her husband. Ashland will need people that he trusts in his corner. 

The only other person Ashland considers a friend is Nate. Ashland has been pushed hard to get Nate on staff at Newman-Locke. Ashland feels Nate would be in his corner. 

However, Nate has been a friend of the Newman family before Ashland was in the picture. Nate will soon be put in a difficult position on The Young And The Restless.

Y&R spoilers for the week of February 21 to 25 suggest Nate will face a dilemma. Victor will ask for Nate's help in proving Ashland faked his illness. 

Likely, Nate will not want to betray Ashland, but Victor is hard to turn down. There is also the matter of Nate's character. Although Ashland was never his patient, Nate may be reluctant to disclose medical details. Yet Victor is a man who gets what he wants on The Young And The Restless.

What Does Nate Decide on Young and the Restless?

Nate will be stuck between the two business titans. Victor will push Nate to help prove Ashland's con. Y&R spoilers tease that Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) will offer Nate advice.

Nate can choose to protect Ashland and accept his job offer. Or he can agree to assist Victor. Lily may offer other alternatives as well.

There is a chance Victor can convince Nate to help. Victoria is Nate's friend, and he would not want to see her hurt or endangered. Moreover, Nate may feel Ashland had ulterior motives when becoming his friend. Ashland may have conned Victoria and Nate on The Young And The Restless.
