The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) could be behind a murder cover-up, which means a deadly buried secret could ultimately come to light. It also means Victoria could be in danger as a new target depending on what Ashland’s current plans are.
Y&R fans know Ashland recently told Victoria the story of how he built his media empire. It all started with some mysterious older woman, who inherited two news stations from her husband when he passed away.
The woman took charge and later died, which left Ashland in the position to buy those stations and grow his empire from there.
The story has to be significant, but maybe it’s less about who the woman is and more about her death.
Did Ashland do something to speed that process along? It wouldn’t be surprising if this woman died under suspicious circumstances.
Ashland might’ve had a hand in sending this woman to an early grave so he could make a move for those news stations and set himself up for success.
Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) feels like there’s more to the story since his minions couldn’t uncover much about the relationship between Ashland and this woman.
Despite Ashland’s claims about the woman being strictly a mentor, it seems likely a romantic entanglement of some sort went down.
Ashland might’ve used that to gain this woman’s trust and eventually plot her death.
We’ve heard repeatedly how conniving and ruthless Ashland is, so it’s high time that Y&R proved it!
Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) thinks that even if there’s something dark in Ashland’s past, it doesn’t matter since Victoria is marrying him for the man he is now.
However, Nikki might change her tune if that something dark is a murder cover-up! That’s especially true since a similar situation’s happening now on a much larger scale.
Ashland clearly manipulated this woman in his past – a woman who took charge of those two news stations before Ashland gained control in the end.
Victoria is someone who took charge of Newman Enterprises, which is now becoming one with Locke Communications Group. Ashland is positioning himself to run two companies and creating a new beginning for his empire.
It seems like history is repeating itself, so we have to wonder if Ashland wants Victoria dead, too!
We have reason to doubt that Ashland is even ill, so he may count on Victoria being the one who dies, not him.
Bottom line, Ashland is a dangerous man, so Victoria could get hurt in more ways than one.
Emotional pain is a given, but could Victoria’s life be in jeopardy? As other updates come in, we’ll keep you in the loop.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say some shocking Ashland revelations are still to come, so don’t miss what’s ahead.
