Does Young and the Restless’ Ashland Have Any Feelings for Victoria?

The Young and the RestlessThe Young and the Restless

For months, The Young and the Restless fans couldn’t be sure what Ashland Locke was up to. Was he a dying man looking to live his last moments of life to the fullest? Was he a scheming businessman bent on getting revenge on Victor Newman for threatening to let him succumb to a heart attack? Was he a newlywed in love? Was he a player taking advantage of an opportunity?

Young and the Restless Polling

Now that we know Ashland (Robert Newman) has been faking his terminal cancer diagnosis, it’s starting to look more and more like this has all been a long con against Victor (Eric Braeden). Which Victor wholly deserves. But is Victoria Newman Locke (Amelia Heinle) just another casualty in Ashland’s cruel game…or does he honestly care for her? We heard from over 2,000 viewers:

Y&R: Bad Man

Ashland set all this up from the start, 66% of you insist. Victor used dishonest means to take Ashland’s company away from him, and now Ashland is doing the same to Victor. Getting Victoria to fall in love with him and make him co-CEO of Newman-Locke is all just part of his devious plan. He couldn’t care less what happens to her next.

Young and the Restless: Time Wounds All Heels

Victoria may have been nothing more than an asset at the start, 29% of voters insist, but then Ashland truly fell in love with her along the way. He didn’t expect to. Remember, he was still married to Tara Locke when he first showed up in Genoa City. But Victoria truly worked her way into his heart…eventually.

Y&R: Escape Plan

Ashland wants Newman-Locke and Victoria. A last-place 5% point out that Ashland begged her to run away with him. We’re not sure when exactly he decided he needed her as much as he needed to stick it to Victor, but now we are certain she’s as important to Ashland as all the money he’s preparing to embezzle. Aw, ain’t love grand?
