Spoilers forThe Young and the Restless indicate that Ashland Locke ( Robert Newman) will sink lower into the muck and mire of his current situation as problems turn up on every hand Several Genoa City residents will make life even more difficult for him but he will only feel empowered to strike back by fighting dirty. Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) all have their own axes to grind and don't realize Ashland has a secret weapon. Vicki has convinced Billy to do a scathing Podcast that airs all of Locke's dirty laundry to the world. Soon everyone will know that he stole a dead man's identity and inheritance to build his empire and how he faked cancer to try to steal the Newman empire. This will enrage the former business mogul and he will be determined to strike back but his problems are only just beginning. Victor is plotting to catch his nemesis in the act of visiting Harrison Locke Abbott (Kellen Enriquez). There is a restraining order and spoilers suggest it will be broken because the Lockeness monster will end up in jail. This will be his lowest point but he will no doubt pull himself up and return in fight mode.
So many losses
At this point, Ashland has suffered some crushing blows. He is being kept away from the little boy he has loved and cared for and believed to be his son. In addition, Harrison's last name has been changed to Abbott and that has got to sting. He has lost the woman he loved and to add insult to injury Victoria tricked him out of what was left of the half-million dollars he received from the Newmans. Now Billy is exposing his deeds to the world and Victor will cause him to be arrested. This is a bit much but for someone as ruthless as Locke he will find a way to bounce back which he may already have. He has a strategy that just might help him get revenge on the Newmans and Billy Abbott as well. Billy is so determined to embarrass Ashland and help Vicki that he may be digging a pit for himself that will cost him everything. Ashland could sue for libel, defamation of character, and slander. He could set things in motion that cause problems for Chancellor and Newman. Victoria is probably not thinking about this as she encourages one ex to crush the other one. Both Vickie and Billie might end up sorry they did not leave well enough alone.
Ashland's secret weapon
Last week on The Young and the Restless Ashland approached Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) about joining him in getting back at the Newman family. Victor removed Adam and gave the CEO position back to Victoria as if his son had no feelings. Adam is angry but he turned Locke down and now spoilers suggest the two will team up to take down Vicki and her family. Nikki Newman (Melody Scott Thomas) and Nick Newman (Josh Morrow) will be working beside Victoria and Victor could not be happier. He wants Adam to join the family business as if he has no clue how he has damaged his son's ego. Y&R viewers wonder if Adam is actually working with Victor and if accepting Ashland's offer is part of a plan to crush Locke. Adam seemed truly hurt when he spoke to Sally but could it have been a ruse. It could be part of a bigger plan or is he really going to work with Ashland against his own relatives? Nick and Nikki working with Victoria and Adam being asked to join them is not his heart's desire He wants the top Newman seat and in time Adam's true intentions will be revealed but Ashland's motives are crystal clear. He believes, after all that he has lost at the hands of the Newmans that he can get the better of them. Be on the lookout for updates to this storyline and keep watching the CBS drama to find out what will happen next.
