'Y&R' Spoilers: Nikki Does Damage Control as Ashland's Deceit Goes Public?

Young And The Restless spoilers tease Ashland Locke's (Robert Newman) lies may become public knowledge. When the Newmans learned that he faked cancer, they wanted him to go away quietly. 

If Ashland's attempts to steal Newman Enterprises went public, it could hurt the company. Moreover, Victoria Newman Locke (Amelia Heinle) would be humiliated. 

She has already blasted Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) for trashing Ashland on his podcast. Billy did not mention names, but it was obvious that he was talking about him.

If Ashland had left town, it would have been easier to keep his deceptions under wraps. No one is angrier than Ashland is still in town than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott). 

Y&R spoilers for the week of May 9 to 13 suggest that Ashland will attempt to repair his relationships in town. Nikki may go into mama bear mode for Victoria. Yet Nikki may have to pull double duty and protect Newman Enterprises as well on Young And The Restless.

Y&R: Nikki Is Put To the Test

Nikki Newman was recently promoted to co-CEO of Newman Enterprises. Young And The Restless spoilers for the week of May 9 to 13 tease that Nikki will face her first major challenge in the position. 

Nikki will have to do damage control. Perhaps the details of Ashland's plan for a hostile takeover became public. Could Billy's thinly disguised podcast tip off the media?

Or maybe Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) goes rogue again. Adam was thrown for a loop when Victoria ruined his shot at becoming co-CEO. Adam decided that he wanted to run the company alone. What better way than to publicly embarrass his sister.

The company was put at risk because Victoria fell for Ashland's deceit. Nikki would go into overtime to protect her daughter and the Newman legacy on Young And The Restless.

Ashland Must Go on Young and the Restless

Nikki Newman was fed up with Ashland Locke when he offered to donate 250 million dollars to New Hope. It was an obvious attempt to look good in Victoria Newman's eyes. 

Ashland has also vowed that nothing short of a murder could get him to leave Genoa City. Still, Y&R spoilers for the week of May 9 to 13 suggest that Nikki Newman will put more pressure on him to leave town.

Furthermore, Ashland seems to be in no hurry to leave. As long as Victoria is conflicted with her feelings, he has hope. Still, Ashland may be pushing his luck. 

Several characters have been outraged that Rey Rosales (Jordi Vilasuso) could be dead while a cad like Ashland is still alive. Are we heading for a murder mystery? If so, Nikki could top the suspect list on The Young And The Restless.
