The Young and the Restless (Y&R) comings and goings spoilers tease that General Hospital alum Richard Burgi has been cast as Ashland Locke aka the Locke Ness Monster (let’s hope it’s not as cheesy as it sounds).
The Desperate Housewives alum is described as a very successful business tycoon with a reputation for being a cutthroat businessman. The character arrives in Genoa City on Thursday, March 11.
Y&R Comings And Goings: Locke Ness Monster In Town
Y&R comings and goings tease Locke comes to Genoa City to engage in a bidding war with the town’s power players from the Newman and Abbott families.
We can’t wait to see him go up against the OG Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). But fans know that he also has a tie to Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) and as such some secrets could emerge during his visit.
The Young and the Restless spoilers: Will Kyle’s secret emerge?
It appears that Kyle had a fling with Locke’s wife some years ago during his salad days in New York. The result was a secret baby who is not so secret or little anymore. Kyle has been running scared all over town alleging the Locke Ness Monster is after him (let’s hope it’s not as cheesy as it sounds).
Seriously though, Young and the Restless’ Burgi is a top notch actor, so he will bring it and add some much needed dynamite to the show; but to saddle him with such an eyeroll moniker?
At the same time Kyle’s relationship with Summer Newman (Hunter King) is at stake on The Young and the Restless, as he has lied to her about being a father. There relationship has been a teeter-totter one so one more lie could threaten to ground it for good.
The Young and the Restless Spoilers: What Happens Next in Genoa City?

Y&R comings and goings tease Ashland is in town to fight business he undoubtedly will have to deal with Kyle and the baby secret. How much does Ashland know? Kyle seems to think that if he finds out, the child’s safety is in danger. Again, there is a lot of over the top writing associated with Ashland, let’s hope the execution isn’t as maudlin.
The real marquee matchup is between tiger titans Victor Newman and Ashland Locke. These two stellar actors going against each other should be golden.
