The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Ashland Locke’s (Richard Burgi) fake miracle cure may be on the way. Ashland might be poised to trick Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) with phony treatment before his deadly illness ruse is ultimately revealed.
Y&R fans know Ashland’s small-cell lung carcinoma claims have always seemed suspicious. There’s never been any medical evidence to back up those claims, so we only have the word of a master manipulator to go on.
Ashland keeps finding ways to put off telling Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez) about his condition. There have also been moments like Ashland’s collapse that just seem staged and designed to support his story.
Ashland was quick to shut down any talk of getting an ambulance or letting a doctor at the hospital check him out!
Think about all the times Ashland’s had convenient attacks where he struggled to breathe in front of people. It just feels like Ashland may be putting on a show here.
Even if Ashland does have some legitimate health issue, it’s probably not anywhere near as serious as he’s letting on.
That brings us to Ashland’s treatment, which he decides to pursue after Victoria declares her love in the July 27 episode.
Ashland may not have counted on Victoria falling so hard for him – and he may not have counted on falling so hard for Victoria either!
What started as a manipulative merger game may have turned into something deeper. Ashland genuinely seems to care about Victoria – and he’s going to live anyway if this terminal illness is fake as we expect.
The time is right for Ashland to pursue a bogus new treatment and respond incredibly well to it.
Ashland may pretend to be a medical marvel who somehow beats the odds and not only survives but thrives.
However, Ashland can only get by with his secret plot for so long. It’s just a matter of time before Victoria uncovers the ruse if one’s indeed going on.
Victoria could turn against Ashland in a big way for duping her, so it may be up to Ashland to undo the damage and win Victoria back.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say some surprises are still to come in Ashland and Victoria’s storyline, so stay tuned. CDL will have other sizzling Young and the Restless spoilers, news and updates, so make us your number one source.
