Is Victoria leaving The Young and The Restless?
Besides the return of Diane Jenkins and the love triangle between Rey, Chelsea and Sharon, Victoria’s story has fans buzzing.
Her marriage to Ashland Locke presented a point of contention throughout the show’s season.
Following Victoria’s discovery of Ashland’s lie about her cancer diagnosis, the conflict in their marriage reached a boiling point.
Despite the rocky nature of their union, Ashland offered Victoria to flee Genoa City together.
As Victoria faces the decision to take Ashland up on her offer, soap fans took to social media to guess at the outcome and wondered if that meant she was leaving the show.
On Twitter, one user said: “So I’m so confused. Does Ashland think Victoria is leaving with him?”
Another fan tweeted, “Ooop. Looks like Ashland is cutting the brakes on Victoria’s car next week.”
A viewer asked, “Is Victoria crying because she knows Ashland is lying to her face? Or because she’s really in love with him and doesn’t want him to go?”
