  • So What's Going To Be Vikki's Punishment When Ashland's Busted

    Ashland has been secretly having meetings for weeks now, he already tried to sneak one of his old employees in the company. I'm sure he's well on his way, to a takeover, and right under Vikki's nose.

    Vic has found out that Ashland may have faked his entire cancer scare. Michael found out the clinic he went to, is suspect and had no history of existence. Which means Ashland was conning Vikki the ENTIRE time, and she's bought it hook line and sinker.

    Ashland has been playing on Vikki's greed and feelings of inferior to the Newman men. He smelled her desperation a mile away and played on it to his advantage. I think he's been playing possum with Vikki, letting her THINK all this will be hers, when in actuality, Ashland has just allowed her to add to HIS empire.

    Vic's already on his trail, while Vikki's is living in blissful ignorance. If Adam deserved Victor's doubts, from Billy's scam, what will Vikki draw with sleeping with the enemy and handing him keys to the Newman empire?

    I think the extent of her punishment will be Adam having more power in the company, probably similar to Victoria’s. I don’t think Adam will become Victoria’s boss or anything like that.

      Nikki will buffer the blows from Victor. Victoria’s heartache will garner sympathy. However, if Ashland is revealed to have faked the illness and that hectook Victoria for a ride then I want a big twist that she was aware the whole time and took her own steps against Ashland.

        I would rather that she didn't know. That would be the pot calling the kettle black as she told her father that Adam was incompetent because he did not see Billy coming after him and could have lost his company. She would be doing this exact same thing by trusting Ashland, in fact, even worse, because she married him, .worked closely with him and lived with him and she isn't seeing it.

        As it is she intentionally scammed her dad by making it seem like it was Adam’s poor judgment when in fact SHE is the one who went to Billy and blackmailed him into threatening to sue NM. Victor as far as we know isn’t aware of that. Just Billy, Lily and Vikki and Ashland know. Ashland didn’t put Vikki up to that, pretty sure it was all her idea but she’s been embolden by her greed and bravado to think she’s smarter than her dad. I hope Victor can't forgive her for all of this and has the Board dethrone her. And there will be Adam waiting in the wings inside the media division to see it all go down and hopefully see Victor’s plan in all this.

        DallasGal, that could be quite the twist having Victoria been aware the whole time about Ashland's illness should it be found out that he lied. Victoria has been looking at Ashland strange lately especially since his cancer has stopped spreading and he now wants an even more active role in the company.

      I'll say this, Victor is known for micromanaging his children. While the writing showed Victor doing this to Adam as "punishment", it doesn't ring true to me because he's done that same thing all along.

      I would also have an issue with Victoria being "punished" for this. Adam missed a strategic play. Victoria fell in love. So Victoria should be punished for falling in love with the wrong person? Does that imply that she shouldn't ever be married or in any relationships because her being in love is a weakness? I think that Victoria's issue is different from Adam's for that very reason.

        What’s love gotta do with it? Not something Victor would think about coming from a CEO holding the future of his company. Vikki pursued a business decision desperate to make a corporate deal and getting the jump on everyone else who might have been interested. Victor will feel badly that Vikki’s feelings get hurt but I think that’s way different from entrusting her to fail to protect his company from an outsider. And the warning signs are becoming all the more obvious to Victor and Nikki yet Victoria will I’m sure still support her husband until it’s too late.

        Let’s face it Vikki flirted with Ashland on a female to male level from the very beginning making her a bigger target and bigger fool thinking she was smarter than Ashland, who unlike her had made his own fortune and could and did outmaneuver her. Daddy’s company being the ultimate prize.

        So will Vikki’s greed align herself with Ashland since she’s already taken a stance against her dad?…or will she admit she made a foolish huge costly mistake due to her ego and drive to be one of the Big Boys and beg daddy’s forgiveness and help to rectify what she has sewn with the family fortune?

      I don't think the word "punished" is what I am looking for with Victoria. What she needs to learn is some humility from all of this. She saw dollar signs when Ashland told her he was dying with cancer and although I think she does love him, it was more of a greedy business move a power play for her to marry him and merge the companies. Victoria definitely needs to step off that high pedestal and she really needs to apologize for her horrible treatment of Adam and Nick and Billy.

        I completely agree with your comment. Victoria's behavior lately has been just horrible. I hate how she treats Adam. Victoria certainly needs to busted down a notch or two because her ego has gotten the better of her and it's an ugly look in my opinion.

      Oh I agree, if he punished Adam for a “what if” with the Billy situation, what will he do to Vikki?

        Let's say it caused him reason to doubt Adam's competence, and if that generated that response from Vic, what will this generate? Cause in all actuality Vic is going on what Vikki feed him. Adam never had any intent to publish Billy's scam, si there was never a threat. But there is a true threat circling, and it's right under Vikki's nose, on her watch.

        Will his faith in Vikki be as shakened as he seemed with Adam.

          Even if it made him doubt Adam's competence, I still think the situations are different. Adam's issue was strategic, and Victoria's "failure" here is that she fell in love (with possibly the wrong person). I don't see how Victor can doubt Victoria's competence here...other than trying to choose who she falls in love with. What would the punishment be?

          But that's the point, Adam hadn't and wasn't planning on acting on Billy's strategy. Vikki knew as much which is why she called Billy's and told him to up hos game. The only thing Adam was doing was gathering info in case.

          Vikki did more than fall in love, she got played, Ashland spotted her a mile away, and is cashing in on it. Vikki got duped! Why hasn't she ever questioned a single thing about Ashland. Because she thinks she's out maneuvered a dying MSN. Caught him at his lowest and promised big things for his legacy. While the hold time Ashland was thinking down the line, once the merger is done.

          Vikki is out of her league and this will prove she's not the powerhouse she thought she was. Face it Victor shield his kids from the real cut throats in the business world.

          Victor doesn’t expect his CEOs to be controlled by emotions, just good business sense. She didn’t use that with Ashland. Victor knows even Nikki has gotten suspicious over a number of moves Ashland has made recently that Vikki has brushed off and instead let him rationalize to her why he’s done those. Now Ashland is trying to pit Victoria against Victor, just like she tried to do with Adam and Victor.

        Victor is going to save Victoria in the end just like he has done all his life. I think Ashland is going to betray Victoria eventually over the Newman/Lock empire and of course Victor will be there to make sure his eldest first daughter will be taken care of. Nikki, will see to it, too. That's a given. The Newmans are Y&R, always been and Victor is the Lord of his empire.

          I’m sure Victor is now thinking Ashland has faked his illness from the very beginning, just looking for info to back up which is where Michael cones in so Victor isn’t solely responsible for digging up info. He’s tried to work hard to repair his relationship with Vikki. I was actually surprised that Victor questioned Ashland’s behavior to Vikki. Suspect she now is getting a bit nervous she may have made a huge, costly mistake for NE. Vikki should be afraid, very afraid as Victor doesn’t tolerate mistakes from his corporate leaders especially this large. Vikki knows nothing happened with Billy situation but Victor’s confidence in Adam was damaged all the same.

          It didn’t sound like it has dawned on Michael however yet that Ashland might have been faking all along. Think Victor didn’t say anything to Michael preferring him to figure it out on his own.

            Vicki's greatest punishment will be knowing that she was duped and taken advantage of again by, not only a man, but by her husband. I think she will be mentally and emotionally devastated.

            I dont care what happens to her in her business life. I just want to see her overinflated ego balloon popped!

              Why should Victoria be punished? Ashland fooled her too. Not too long ago Victor was singing Ashland’s praises to Nikki when she raised some reservations about him. They are trying to prop up Victor by rewriting history pretending he was always suspicious of Ashland. As for Victoria if and when Ashland is exposed Nikki of course and Victor will try to protect her.

                I’m sure he always was suspicious but saw that his doubt which he expressed in front of Vikki and Ashland early on was hurting Vikki who he truly wanted to mend fences with. So he did what he could at the time, learned from Nick’s mistake with Vikki. She told her dad he had cancer and was going for treatment and even went with him apparently a few times at least to Peru. But circumstance have changed, Victor’s heard things from Nikki and Vikki approached him about taking over not only Chance Com but his own Newman Media. Much to raise eyebrows over and dig into his miraculous treatment. Vikki sure as heck has bought into it all along.

                That's the same question I have. Why should there be punishment or a knock down for Victoria. Victor bragged to Jack's face when he got the upperhand on him. Why should women be knock down a ped or punished when they do the exact same thing. Victoria and Adam are always trying to prove who Daddy loves best so she will throw her accomplishments in his face and he will do the same to her. At least this show is consistent with Victoria and Adam roles the show was boring when the two of them got along. Victor was ruthless in the business world and everybody loved him but why should a women be punished or knock down a ped or two when she show the same character traits.

                Because this isn't just a business deal or venture, she is trying to come between Vic n Adam, take everything away from Adam, right after Adam saved her sorry a$$ husband reputation and NE as well.

                There was no reason for this attack, and the damage she is trying to, that's why she needs to be brought down. Vic n Adam do this and they are monsters and control freaks, Vikki does it, and suddenly it's not the same.

              I think she should set him free so he can be infected by Phyllis with her brand of 'love' next......

              I do hate to see Victoria fail at marriage #19, but....them's the breaks, kid.....

                Well if Victor was disappointed in Adam for not seeing what Billy was up to which lead to him taking a more active role in NM because he lost some faith in Adam then he needs to treat Victoria equally the same. Victor should snatch her CEO position from her and hand it to Adam which is something that Victoria fears in my opinion. That to me would be the ultimate punishment for her not seeing through Ashland's game.

                  EXACTLY!!! Just as Vikki tried to get Vic to do to Adam, and she had to lie and manipulate to get Vic to step back in the company. She only said something because Billy backed out their deal. But noone has to manipulate Vic this time, like Vikki did, all this is truth and the fact that Vikki is in over her head with Ashland. Her arrogance makes her think she's on Ashland's level but she's not, and it's showing. By the time she figures it out, it will be a done deal.
