Young & Restless’s Victoria and Ashland could be doomed by her dying lie


Will a vicious lie tear apart the new life she’s trying to build?

If we are honest we wanted The young and the restless‘Victoria to find a new man to love for quite a while. For too long she has been stuck in a vicious, self-defeating cycle with Billy. Now that he’s gone with Lily (although we can’t help but think that the level of investment he still has in Victoria’s life might be a problem…), it looks like Victoria, too, start a new life. And while we love both Ashland and what he brings out in the heroine, we can’t help but notice those dark storm clouds gathering on the horizon.

Part of the problem might just be the gossip we’ve been hearing about Ashland since before he and his manipulative Ms. They don’t call him Locke Ness’ monster for nothing. While we have so far seen few signs of the man described as ruthless in his professional and personal life, we have a theory that is downright frightening … and would prove to be disastrous on every level for Victoria.

Last week, Tara decided to uplift the ante in her custody fight for Ashland by posting a deceptive video that she hoped would make her ex look like a bad father and husband. It was a dirty trick, but we think she learned from Ashland. After all, it’s likely his media empire was built on more than a few leaked anonymous stories designed to convey a narrative that could be misleading at best and a full-blown lie at worst.

Which brings us to this other recently leaked information regarding Ashland’s medical records and the fact that he supposedly only has a few months to live. There has been a lot of speculation about who might have leaked this information and why, and after doing a little math we came to the conclusion that one (Ashland’s reputation) plus one (Victoria’s vulnerability) may well correspond to two undeniable facts: Ashland has released her own health problem in order to take away both the company and Victor’s daughter from her.

Could Ashland play a horribly cruel game with Victoria, creating a fake disease in order to get the beauty to lower her defenses? Does the tycoon have a secret reason for wanting to destroy Victor and, so much the better for those The Mustache loves being hurt in the process? And since this is a soap opera, could Ashland end up with a fate worse than (fake) death by falling in love with the woman he hopes to use, only to get him to uncover his ruse and prove that? she is the daughter of Victor while doing everything in her power to destroy her future beau?

What do you think, Young and restless fans… Could Ashland play both a horrible trick and, unwittingly, with fire? Or do you think he’s really dying and his love for Victoria is genuine?
