The Young and the Restless spoilers for Tuesday, January 18, 2022, tease Nikki Newman making discovery about Ashland Locke she really was hoping not to make, while Devon Hamilton asks Mariah Copeland for input on the Dominic conundrum, and Phyllis Summers remembers that she and Nicholas Newman have broken up.
Lo and behold, the day after Victor Newman told Michael Baldwin that he doesn’t trust Ashland Locke professionally, Nikki Newman catches her son-in-law in a compromising position. Please, please, please make it that Ashland has been faking his cancer diagnosis from the beginning.
Even more, that Tara Locke has been in on this with him from the start. That they used Victoria Newman’s loneliness and Kyle Abbott’s childish gullibility to get into the Newman money, steal it, then grab Harrison and go off to live on a tropical island together, laughing about those rubes in Genoa City, who thought they could play with the real New York power players.
That’s the only way this story will have any kind of pay-off! At first, Mariah was the one who had a hard time letting go of her baby Bowie. But just when she forced herself to move on, Devon decided he needed legal access to the boy.
