Y&R: Victor Gains Leverage?

During Victor Newman's conversation with Michael Baldwin, Harrison Locke's (Kellen Enriquez) name came up. Michael mentioned that Ashland would never leave Genoa City as long as Harrison was there. 

Then it dawned on Victor that Harrison is Ashland's Achilles heel. How will Victor use Harrison against Locke? Summer Newman (Allison Lanier) is raising the little boy with his father, Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor).

The couple recently learned that Ashland faked cancer to get control of Newman Enterprises. Summer and Kyle were disgusted that Ashland would lie, especially to Harrison. 

The couple decided to ban Ashland from seeing Harrison. Could Victor strike a bargain with Ashland? Victor's goal is to create distance between Ashland and Victoria. The Mustache is worried about Ashland's influence on his daughter.

Will Victor's Plan Work on Young and the Restless?

Victor Newman believes that Summer, Kyle, and Harrison are returning to Milan. He may hope to persuade Ashland to follow. 

However, Young And The Restless spoilers suggest that the trio will remain in Genoa City. Will that change Victor's plan? Maybe Victor can still promise Ashland access to Harrison if he leaves. But there wouldn't be an ocean between Victoria and Ashland.

Not to mention that Victor would need Kyle and Summer's cooperation. Summer is Victor's granddaughter. He may try to convince her that his plan is in the family's best interest. 

Still, Summer and Kyle may object to Harrison being used as a pawn in Victor's games. Moreover, Ashland might have hope for a reconciliation with Victoria, so he may be reluctant to leave her behind. Would Ashland choose Victoria or Harrison on The Young And The Restless?
