The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers recap for Thursday, March 10, teases that Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) will sign the co-CEO agreement as Victoria Newman-Locke (Amelia Heinle) takes her trust to the extreme. Here’s what Y&R fans can expect on Thursday’s exciting episode.
At Crimson Lights, Victoria will push Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) to admit she doesn’t believe these horrible accusations.
Nikki won’t want to believe what she’s hearing against Ashland, but she’ll point out he’s got a shady past – and the lies just keep coming!
Plus, Nikki will struggle to believe that Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) would make something like this up.
Victoria will remind Nikki that Victor has resorted to some underhanded tricks – like when he forced Ashland to sign a contract while he was having a heart attack.
Victoria will ask if that was supposed to be fake, too.
Nikki will urge Victoria to consider that the accusations might be true, but Victoria will respond with a “how dare you” and shut down the idea.
Victoria will argue that Nikki’s asking her to believe Ashland lied to her from the minute they met and that the man she adores doesn’t love her.
Nikki will push Victoria to at least talk to Michael – and after Nikki leaves in a huff, Victoria will indeed leave Michael a voicemail urging him to call her back.
At Newman-Locke, Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) will confront Ashland with the accusations he heard from the Newmans.
Ashland will insist it’s all a revenge plot from one of his enemies and will keep playing up his friendship with Nate.
Although Nate will confess it’s tough to imagine Ashland would do this, he’ll still seem concerned.
Ashland will talk about his many accomplishments with the Newmans, so that’ll leave Nate questioning whether Ashland views his marriage as an accomplishment as well.
Ashland will insist Victoria is the best thing that ever happened to him.
Ashland will refuse to let anyone take away a single second of whatever time they have left together.
At Society, Lauren Baldwin (Tracey E. Bregman) will give Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart) updates on her concerns about Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) going MIA.
Kevin will downplay those concerns before agreeing to dig around.
When Chloe Mitchell (Elizabeth Hendrickson) shows up later, Kevin will admit to her that he’s genuinely worried.
Kevin will think they at least owe it to Michael to investigate.
At Newman Media, Victor will talk to Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) about how they need irrefutable evidence, which they don’t currently have.
Victor won’t like Ashland being in the driver’s seat and will think time’s running out since Ashland is about to sign the co-CEO agreement.
Although Michael was supposed to gather up all the dirt he could find on Ashland, Victor will note that he hasn’t received it yet.
Michael’s disappearance will also trouble Victor, but Nikki will blow in and worry about what’ll happen if Victor’s wrong about his accusations.
Adam will pipe up about the importance of solid evidence and will mention that they can’t count on Michael to save the day.
Suddenly, Lauren will walk in and insist she’d like to hear what Adam has to say about her husband.
Victor will end up giving Lauren a vague spiel about Michael’s delicate mission and how he’ll be back soon.
Lauren will feel like Victor is either covering something up or doesn’t want to admit that he’s lost contact with Michael.
After Lauren rants about this trip turning into something dangerous, Victor will argue that he’d never put Michael in danger.
Victor will add that if something went awry, he’d move heaven and earth to bring Michael back.
Lauren will eventually get fed up with the lack of info and will leave with a warning.
Lauren will make it clear that if anything happens to Michael, then she’ll never forgive Victor.
Back at the coffeehouse, Lauren will join Chloe and Kevin on the patio.
Kevin will reveal that he hacked Michael’s devices, but all he found were dead ends and brick walls.
If they don’t hear news from Michael by morning, Kevin will vow to get his cop buddies involved.
When Victoria returns to her office, she’ll find Nate there with Ashland.
Victoria will think it’s humiliating that her family members are spreading rumors and will push Nate to tell her that he doesn’t buy this.
Nate will note that everything he’s seen supports Ashland’s diagnosis, but he won’t say it convincingly.
After Victoria suggests Nate should talk some sense into Victor, Nate will hope the truth comes out sooner rather than later – for all their sakes.
Once Nate is gone, Victoria will think it’s such a relief that Nate isn’t buying this nonsense.
Since Ashland won’t look happy, Victoria will wonder why he’s so upset with the chief of surgery in his corner.
Ashland will act like he’s just bothered by Victor trying to poison his friend against him.
Ashland will vow to find out who’s behind the attack, prove the allegations are lies and remove any shred of doubt for Victor or anyone else.
At Society, Nate will sit down for brunch with Elena Dawson (Brytni Sarpy) and admit he’s been dragged into a situation involving scandalous accusations.
After Nate says he’s having doubts about the Newman-Locke job and about Ashland himself, Elena will push him to trust his instincts.
Nate won’t be sure who’s behind all this with Ashland, but he’ll intend to find out.
Meanwhile, Adam will find Victor wrapping up a call about the Michael investigation.
Victor will acknowledge that Ashland is a desperate man and will expect anything from him now that his story’s unraveling.
Finally, Ashland will ask if Victoria can look him in the eye and say she believes he’s telling the truth.
Victoria will declare that “of course” she can and will prove her support by presenting the co-CEO agreement for Ashland to sign.
After Ashland puts his signature down, he’ll insist Victoria doesn’t know how much this means to him.
