When they exchanged vows in Italy on The Young and the Restless, Ashland Locke sure seemed to be head over heels in love with Victoria Newman. But he was a different man then.
The Young and the Restless Polling
Now, everything Ashland (Robert Newman) says or does seems to suggest this was all a long con where Ashland wanted to take Newman Enterprises away from Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and was only using Victoria (Amelia Heinle) to further his agenda. But is that really all it was? Could The Locke Ness Monster truly have feelings for his relatively new bride?
Y&R: Lying Liar Who Lies
It was all an act from the start, 74% of you feel certain of it. Maybe not from the moment he arrived in Genoa City. Maybe then, he really just wanted his wife and son back.
But once he learned about Harrison’s true paternity…and once Victor threatened to let Ashland die from a heart attack unless he gave Victor his way, Ashland hatched a scheme to make the Murderous Mustache pay. He never loved Victoria. He just laughed about what he could use her for.
The Young and the Restless: Forecast Unclear
A smaller but more big-hearted 21% of the audience still can’t be certain one way or the other. He certainly sounds sincere. And he didn’t accept Adam Newman’s (Mark Grossman) bribe. Now, that might mean he has a bigger payoff in mind. Or it could be that he wants the company…and his wife, too.
Y&R: Changes Coming
Only 5% are all in on The Ashland Loves Victoria bandwagon. He didn’t have to marry her in order to stick it to Victor. The Wisconsin big fish in a small pond was never a match for a New York Master of the Universe. Ashland fell in love with Victoria in spite of himself, and anything he may — or may not — have done since then has nothing to do with her. Business is business and love is love.
