Young & Restless Wedding Shocker: Will Victoria and Ashland’s Nuptials Actually Marry Off Another Couple?!?
Will a soapy twist see two of the guests tie the knot instead of the intended bride and groom?
Young & Restless’ Victoria has gone all in (and is going all out!) when it comes to committing to her new love, Ashland. With a huge, splashy wedding planned in Italy, and the protective males in her life unable to unearth any decent dirt on the groom, it appears all systems are go. But will they still be a ‘go’ when they meet at the altar? We’re concerned…
It would be a twist indeed if neither Billy nor Victor were able to find something incriminating enough on the groom to throw a monkey wrench into the wedding of the century, particularly since he’s known as the Locke Ness Monster — one doesn’t earn a moniker like that for being squeaky clean!
More: How we *know* Ashland has ulterior motives
So far, whatever tracks Ashland has left in his past have remained firmly covered, but the foreshadowing is heavy that a terrible secret will be revealed — and what better time for it to finally be discovered and shared than right before Ashland’s about to seal the deal, if you will, with Victoria by marrying her?
If the wedding of the century turns into the scandal of the century, will the lavish preparations be abandoned? We think not. After all, this is a soap. Remember when Victoria and Billy stepped in and got married at the church after Kevin called off his wedding to Chloe at the last minute?
Given we’ve just had word that Michael Mealor and Hunter King will return, could Kyle and Summer be the pair to step in if Victoria calls off her nuptials? Since their brief visit is slated for October, which is when the wedding will be held, and that they are slated to attend with Harrison, it’s a safe bet. When the pair announced their departure from Young & Restless we speculated that their send-off would involve a romantic Italian wedding — and this would certainly be one way to accomplish it.

Of course, it would be awful for Victoria, and would leave us wondering if she and Ashland will ever get a happy ending of their own.

<p>Summer Newman (then Samantha Bailey) and Kyle Abbott (then Garrett Ryan) spent time together growing up. Their history as kids was referenced in the present when Summer gave Kyle a framed photo of them ice-skating. </p>
<p>Troubled by her parents’ on-again, off-again relationship, teenage Summer (Hunter King) acted out, including bullying. When the older Kyle (then Blake Hood) arrived back in Genoa City, she developed a crush on him, but he told her she was too young.</p>
<p>Summer managed to make some headway with this version of Kyle (Hartley Sawyer), but after kissing Phyllis (Michelle Stafford), he cut things off with her daughter. For a time, it was believed that Summer was Jack’s (Peter Bergman’s) daughter, which also put a crimp in any “Skyle” romance.</p>
<p>After it was established that they weren’t brother and sister, and after Summer’s husband, Austin Travers (Matthew Atkinson) died, she and Kyle (then Lachlan Buchanan) finally got together and made love for the first time. Although they became lovers, Summer thought New York had changed Kyle, and the tension between their families was also an issue. Kyle eventually returned to New York.</p>
<p>Summer blew back into town with a stolen sports car and an attitude and was put on a project with Kyle (Michael Mealor) at work. Though Kyle clearly still found her attractive, he was put off by her interest in her mother’s boyfriend, Billy (Jason Thompson) and wouldn’t have sex with her after winning their bet because he wanted her to have real feelings for him.</p>
<p>Summer eventually set her sights back on Kyle, who had fallen for Lola Rosales (Sasha Calle). When Lola needed a liver transplant to save her life, Kyle agreed to marry Summer in return for her becoming a donor. Kyle was still hung up on Lola, however, and ended up married to her instead, breaking Summer’s heart.</p>
<p>Kyle got back together with Summer after realizing that he may have changed too much in order to be with Lola. He reconciled with Summer and the pair worked together at Jabot as top executives.</p>
<p>Summer and Kyle eventually remarried in Italy (offscreen) after weathering the reveal that Kyle had fathered a child with a married socialite in New York. The pair are raising his son Harrison together since the boy’s mother, Tara Locke, went to prison for embezzlement.</p>
<p>Kyle and Summer (now played by Allison Lanier) were drawn back to Genoa City from Milan when his mother, Diane, turned up alive. Kyle and Harrison flew back so Jack could break the shocking news about his mom and Summer followed, arriving just in time to attend Mariah and Tessa’s wedding, which Kyle officiated!</p>
<p>Summer and Kyle moved back to Genoa City with Harrison after Jabot purchased Marchetti and he took on the challenge of helming the design house, which was bittersweet for Jack. All was right in the world for these two… with the exception of their warring mothers!</p>
<p>After moving back to Genoa City, Kyle and Summer renewed their commitment in the back of the Abbott Estate with the help of officiants, Tessa, Mariah, and Noah. The couple pledged their love before family and friends who weren’t able to attend their nuptials in Milan. Of course, this being a soap, the ceremony was crashed. Tucker McCall swung by in a helicopter in hopes of making a splash and impressing his ex-wife Ashley, who wasn’t even there.</p>
<p>Everything was hunky-dory between Kyle and Summer until the friction between their mothers inevitably began affecting their marriage. They fought and then kissed and made up numerous times… but Diane being arrested for killing Phyllis drove a wedge between them that they may not be able to overcome.</p>
