The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) may die in Italy after a wedding exposure and escape plot end in disaster. These October nuptials have built up as what’ll likely be the climax of Ashland’s mysterious arc. Ashland’s final secrets may be revealed as Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) gears up to tie the knot with her deceptive fiancé.
Of course, there should be some close calls ahead of Victoria and Ashland’s marriage ceremony.
Y&R fans can expect Victoria to corner Ashland for more answers during the week of September 27-October 1 – presumably after she finds out he once again hasn’t been honest.
Victoria may become privy to this blackmail situation with Jesse Gaines (Jamison James) and want to know why Ashland’s paying this guy $3 million to keep quiet.
However, Ashland is a master manipulator who knows how to make Victoria feel sympathy for him. He may be able to spin the story enough so that Victoria’s convinced he’s still a changed man and a good guy at heart.
Whatever the case, all signs point to this wedding still happening in Tuscany this October.
Since that’s probably when the last of Ashland’s secrets will be exposed, it’s reasonable to think that’s when Ashland’s arc will end as well.
Victoria should finally see Ashland’s true colors and decide she’s done with him. It’s just a matter of whether Ashland will leave dead or alive!
Ashland’s terminal illness may not even be real, but he could easily die of something else far sooner regardless.
In the September 21 episode, Gaines is unwilling to wait for his money since Ashland might stay gone after his trip to Italy.
There are concerns that Ashland might flee the country, though Ashland insists he’s not plotting an escape.
However, that could change once Ashland feels the walls closing in. Ashland might try to run – only to meet a grim fate and stay gone for a different reason.
There have been some hints that Ashland’s death might await him.
Ashland once ominously told Victoria that he trusted her with his life, which suggested that maybe his life would ultimately wind up in her hands.
It’s easy to imagine Victoria landing in a situation similar to the one Victor landed in – back when he refused to call for help unless Ashland signed the Cyaxares contract.
This time around, perhaps Victoria will stand over Ashland after another heart attack and let him die for all his rotten secrets.
If Ashland lied about being sick and just wanted to take over Newman Enterprises as part of his twisted plans, Victoria might be furious enough to do it.
One way or another, Ashland is headed for the exit door – and Victoria may be the one who gives him a nudge!
The Young and the Restless spoilers say some shocking developments are brewing in Ashland’s storyline, so stay tuned.
