'Y&R': Will Michael Find a Way To Save Victor From Ashland Debacle?

Young And The Restless spoilers tease Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) may be in trouble. Victor jumped into protective daddy mode on the night of Ashland Locke's (Robert Newman) death. 

When Nick Newman (Joshua Morrow) punched Ashland, he suffered a fatal head injury. He fell and hit his head on the fireplace hearth and did not survive. Victor immediately had Ashland's body placed in his car and had it appear that he died in a car accident.

Victor arranged the coverup with his right-hand man Michael Baldwin (Christian Leblanc). The pair were confident that their plan was foolproof. Still, they didn't count on Chance Chancellor's determination to solve the mystery surrounding Ashland's death. 

Not to mention that Nick is feeling a lot of guilt. B&B spoilers for the week suggest Nick is on the verge of confessing the truth. So, either Chance or Nick could land Victor in prison. Victor may need Michael's legal services once again on Young And The Restless.

Y&R: Michael Keeps Victor Out of Jail?

Micheal Baldwin always comes through for Victor Newman. He was the one who found proof that Ashland Locke was faking cancer. He even spent time in a Peruvian prison for his efforts. 

Still, Michael works hard to protect Victor and the Newman family. As Chance gets closer to the truth, Victor may call upon Michael to save the day.

Y&R spoilers for the week of August 15 to 19 divulge that the family will discuss a strategy to handle Chance's investigation. Victor was not happy that one of his security team was sloppy when handling Ashland's body. 

That may lead to Victor's downfall. However, Michael is a clever lawyer who always manages to save Victor. Will this time be the same on Young And The Restless?

Victor Avoids Jail on Young And the Restless?

Michael Baldwin could be the one to keep Victor Newman out of jail. Or it could be someone else. Y&R summer spoilers indicate that Chance Chancellor will want to meet with Victor, Nick, and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). 

At the ranch, Chance will deliver surprising news. He will say whether Ashland got into his car on his own or was put there under Victor's orders. One thing is true. Ashland's death was an accident.

At the end of the day, Ashland was an evil man and was no longer a threat to the Newmans. Can the they breathe a sigh of relief? 

Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) is still digging into the events surrounding Ashland's death. Perhaps he would be the one to try to land Victor in jail. 

So even though Chance will drop the case, Victor may not be out of the woods. Michael should be prepared to jump into action on The Young And The Restless.
