The Young and the Restless : Ashland love Victoria

For months, The Young and restless fans couldn't be sure what Ashland Lock was doing. He was a dying man.

He wanted the last moments of his life to be fulfilled? Did he threaten to kill Victor Newman in retaliation? Was he in love?

Ashland is falsifying its terminal cancer diagnosis, a long-running controversy against Victor.

Ashland is now working with Victor. His falling in love with Victoria and making him co-CEO of Newman-Lock are all part of his misleading plan.

Victoria could be nothing more than an asset in the beginning, 29% of voters insisted, but then Ashland truly fell in love with her.

He was still married to Lock when he first came to the city of Genoa. But Victoria really worked her heart out ... finally.

Ashland wants Newman-Lock and Victoria. A last-place 5% indicates that Ashland asked him to flee with her.

We're not sure when he decided he needed as much as he needed to keep her with Victor,
