‘The Young And The Restless’ Spoilers: Richard Burgi Knocks It Out Of The Park As Ashland Locke – Yay or Nay?

‘The Young And The Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers show that Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi) has finally made his way to Genoa City and has been everything people expected him to be. I thought he knocked it out of the park as the infamous “Lochness Monster” and his scenes were great.

As soon as we’re introduced to Loche, he believes Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor) is a bell boy, and I instantly knew I was going to like this character. The way he overshadowed every other person in his scene and it felt like everyone was talking to a king or something was done really well.

Funny enough, I keep seeing horror actors pop up in soap operas (the first time I saw Katrina Bowden was in ‘Tucker and Dale VS Evil) and I instantly recognized Burgi from ‘The Green Inferno’ and ‘Hostel Part II’. While he’s done a ton of other work, it was funny to see him here.

It’s unfortunate we’re only going to get a few episodes with him in it, but maybe he’ll continue to make such an impression that the show writers will have him stay in Genoa City a touch longer, especially if Kyle comes clean about Harrison and fights to see his son!

I was a fan of today’s episode, and he simply stole every scene he was in. He even stood toe to toe with Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) and seems to be perfect for the role.

After today’s episode, who do you think he’ll sell the company to? I have a feeling Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) is going to come out on top!

What do you think? Who will come out on top for Locke’s company? Let us know in the comments below.
