The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Tara Locke (Elizabeth Leiner) may face a shocking death. The show’s hinting at a fatal outcome and suggesting that this schemer may pay a horrible price for sinking so low. Let’s consider the clues and see how they could offer a prediction about Tara’s demise.
In the Tuesday, June 22 episode, Tara asks Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) about the old custody battle over Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and learns how Diane Jenkins (Maura West) used her son to her advantage.
Jack talks about being in such an ugly place with Diane at the time of her death, so Tara responds by playing innocent and noting that Diane paid a high price for her mistakes.
This could be Y&R’s way of setting up Tara’s death as well. Tara is also manipulating the situation using her son, so she’s behaving just like Diane.
Tara is threatening to take Harrison Locke (Kellen Enriquez) away from Kyle if Summer Newman (Hunter King) doesn’t dump her fiancé and move to Italy, so she’s resorting to dirty tricks that could come back to bite her.
Will Tara pay a high price for her mistakes as well? Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) killed Diane in self-defense once things spiraled out of control, so Tara could become a corpse by the end of her arc.
Since Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) is dying of small-cell lung carcinoma, that’ll leave Kyle as the only father left in Harrison’s life. The show may want to push Tara out of the picture as well and leave Summer to step up as a mother figure to Harrison.
If Tara dies along with Ashland, that’d set Kyle and Summer up as the only parents Harrison will know moving forward.
Let’s face it: Tara doesn’t feel like a character with staying power. It seems like Tara’s around to create some temporary drama and ultimately go down for it, so we have to consider how things will turn out for her.
It’s possible Tara will disappear like she’s threatened to. There’s also a chance Tara will resort to criminal behavior and land in prison. However, there’ll probably be no need to keep Tara alive at the end of her run.
The Young and the Restless might just kill Tara off to make this as dramatic as possible and pave the way for Summer to be the only mom Harrison grows up with. We’ll bring updates as other news emerges.
The Young and the Restless spoilers say things aren’t looking good for Tara, so stay tuned to see if her death is looming. CDL will have other hot soap spoilers, news and updates to read up on, so pop back in soon.
