‘The Young And The Restless’ Spoilers: Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) Was A Wasted Villain That Could Have Lasted Much Longer

The Young And The Restless (Y&R) spoilers reveal that Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) was brought to Genoa City and immediately made a formidable opponent for the likes of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). They built him in such a way that we felt he could take on him and maybe even win.

He was even nicknamed the infamous ‘Lochness Monster’. While the introduction was incredibly strong, he apparently lost a lot of anxiety over time, eventually leading to a lackluster ending that we’ll remember for a while.

The Young And The Restless spoilers: Ashland Locke (Robert Newman) was a wasted villain who could have lasted much longer

What should and could have been an incredible duel between two titans was relegated to a right hook and bump to the head. While we at least got to see the end of Ashland on screen, as opposed to Rey Rosale’s (Jordi Vilasuso) car crash off screen, we still feel bereft of a great potential villain.

Not to mention they had two great actors take the role in Richard Burgi and Robert Newman but it feels like it was all for naught. It was just another failed romance for Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle). While there was a moment when Ashland’s men captured Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), it was resolved quickly and it never really felt like he was in any danger, which is fine, but what about the ” Monster” part of Locke happened?

For a character so highly touted as having the potential to take over the world, it was hard to deal with his story coming to such an abrupt and unsatisfying end. Well, I suppose our biggest threat in Genoa City is Diane Jenkins (Susan Walters), which is another story.
