Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) has become the number one enemy of the Newman family. After learning he lied about his illness, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) focuses on removing his son-in-law from their lives.

Ashland’s redemption might be cut short as he plots revenge on the Newmans. And he’ll have a new acquaintance in Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters). The Newmans and the Abbotts better watch out with those two teaming up.

Nikki Newman is feeling the pressure as CEO

To everyone’s surprise, Victor made Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) the temporary CEO of Newman Enterprises. The move didn’t go over well with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman), who felt he should be in charge. Yet, Adam isn’t giving up on his quest to be CEO. 

According to Celeb Dirty Laundry, The Young and the Restless spoilers indicate Adam and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) resort to scheming to get what they want. Speculation is the two will reunite separated lovebirds Victoria and Ashland. 

Meanwhile, Nikki is feeling the pressure of being in charge. Her bad week starts with her qualifications being questioned. As of that wasn’t enough, Nikki runs into her rival Diane, who’ll have unflattering comments to make. Diane’s remarks will set off Nikki, who delivers a hard slap to Miss Jenkins.

‘The Young and the Restless’ spoilers suggest trouble in paradise for Genoa City couples

It’s springtime which means love is in the air. However, that’s not the case for many Genoa City residents. Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) and Lily Winters’ (Christel Khalil) relationship has been tense recently. 

According to Soap Hub, The Young and the Restless spoilers says, Billy finds himself in trouble with his girlfriend. It might have something to do with Billy’s interference in the Victoria and Ashland situation. Maybe Billy should concentrate more on his relationship instead of his ex-wife.
