'Y&R' Week Ahead Predictions: Ashland Locke's 'New' Secret Revealed – All Lies?

Young and the Restless spoilers tease Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) will show his true colors. Ashland's ruthless reputation was well known before coming to Genoa City. Despite this, Ashland won the heart of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). 

There were some bumps in the road when Ashland's past was exposed, but Victoria merged her company and her life with the business mogul. The Newmans accepted Ashland into the family except for Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow). Nick's stance has caused a rift between him and his sister.

Young and the Restless predictions for the week of January 10 to 14 reveal that their parents will take action. Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) will try to restore peace to the family. Can they restore the peace between Victoria and Nick? 

Victoria's protective brother does not trust her husband. Despite Victoria's resentment, Nick may be proven right on Young and the Restless.

Young and the Restless: The Locke-Ness Monster Emerges?

Ashland has convinced Victoria that he is an open book. The duo appeared to be happy and shared the news about Ashland's improving health. 

Yet there may be heartache ahead for Victoria. Young and the Restless spoilers for January divulge Ashland has a new secret. Locke assured Victoria that she knew everything about him. So this new secret must be huge. 

Many Y&R fans have doubted that Ashland has a terminal illness. It may be all part of an elaborate hoax. Victoria may have played right into his hands when she pushed to merge their business empires. Also, Ashland could have married her to ensure that he could get his hands on Newman Enterprises.

Nick would not be surprised if Ashland's goal was to steal everything Victor built. Perhaps Locke has an old grudge to settle with the Mustache. 

Young and the Restless spoilers for January suggest the tension between Victoria and Nick will continue. Perhaps Nick will uncover Ashland's latest secret. Victoria may be skeptical about whatever Nick has to say. Yet Ashland may be ready to show his true nature on Y&R.

Will Ashland Exit The Young And The Restless?

Richard Burgi announced on Instagram that he would be departing from the CBS soap. The actor gave a heartfelt thank you to his fans. That begs the question, will Ashland leave Genoa City? 

There is always the possibility that Ashland's illness is real. He could succumb to cancer. Perhaps he will exit in triumph after successfully stealing Newman Enterprises.

Or, Victor will get the best of the Locke-Ness monster, and he leaves with his tail between his legs. There is also the possibility the character will be recast.

In any case, Ashland will have a busy upcoming week. Young and the Restless spoilers for the week of January 10 to 14 reveal Locke will have confrontations with Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson). 

He may try to strong-arm Lily, but she will stand her ground. Ashland will also question Billy's change of heart regarding the revenge scheme. Ashland will also be busy hiding secrets on The Young and the Restless.
