Who Will Be the Victor on Young and the Restless?
Ashland Locke had a ruthless reputation that earned him the nickname Locke-Ness Monster. He started his empire by stealing an inheritance from a woman who mentored him.
His real name is not even Ashland Locke. He stole the identity of a friend. That said, it would come as no surprise that he would fake an illness to gain control of Newman Enterprises.
However, Ashland may have made a critical error going after Victor's legacy. Perhaps Ashland believed Victor would not be on top of his game since he retired as CEO of Newman Enterprises.
Ashland may have targeted Victoria, thinking she would be an easy mark. However, you can't expect to get away with attacking Victor's legacy or family on The Young and the Restless.
