Soaps Spoilers has the Canadian Y&R day ahead recap for the Tuesday, September 14, 2021 episode, which airs in the USA Wednesday, September 15. In the previous episode, Mariah and Devon became godparents. In this episode, Ashland is angered by Billy’s persistence, Victor becomes incensed with Billy’s attitude, and Billy thinks Ash made up his entire backstory to gain sympathy.
At the ranch, Ashland explains to Victoria, Nikki and Victor, Nick and Billy that he wasn’t sure if his father would come after him so he changed his name and moved around a lot. He made up a background that was a calm and stable environment. Ian and Mary Locke were proud parents. He struggles to breathe and Victoria grabs him. She tells them he’s under a tremendous amount of stress. She sits him down and is sure that they understand what it’s been like for him. Victor says his story isn’t dissimilar from his. He hopes Ash understands the need to investigate his background. Ashland understands why they insist Victoria’s in good hands. Victoria hopes this answers all their questions, “Some of them that have bordered on harassment.” Billy says it does, “But there’s still —” Victoria cuts him off. Everyone admits they still have questions though they appreciate the billionaire’s candor. Ashland tells Victoria he can handle this. “You don’t have to run interference.” She gives him the floor and Billy begins to ask a question when Victor cuts him off. “Billy Boy, this is my house and I’ll ask the questions.” He wants to know what happened to Ashland’s parents. Ashland raises his voice in anger as he talks about raging against his mother for allowing his father to abuse him. She’d look at him with his black eye and split lip and blamed him for provoking his father. Billy’s surprised that he hasn’t seen them since. Ash says they didn’t deserve any part of the success he earned in spite of them. She died a few years before his father. He wanted to forgive her but it was too late. Nikki’s sorry they didn’t get a chance to reconcile. Billy asks if they’re buried somewhere and asks for the name on their headstone. “In fact, you haven’t told us your real name, either.” Ash says he’s right. He didn’t. “And I’m not going to.” He doesn’t believe it’d serve a purpose. He has no desire to see their names dragged through the mud. Victor thinks it’s generous but they desire to know all they can about his family so they can know him. Victoria defends Ash. They do know him. Nick wants to know about his early career. Ash says there’ nothing illegal or nefarious. “Enough is enough,” He snipes. Billy disagrees. He’ll find out anyway. Ash tells him it won’t happen. He’s taken the necessary steps to block that information private. He yells at Billy that he’ll be damned if he’ll revisit it “so you can sell ad space.” Victoria defends Ash again and Billy tries once again to get Ash to tell all but Victor stops the argument. He reminds Billy that he’s not a part of this family and demands he stop yelling at his guest. They should support Victoria. “That’s it. Is that clear?” He yells. Victoria thanks her dad. Once everyone’s gone, Nikki returns home from a meeting later and says her meeting went well but she couldn’t stop thinking about how they don’t know Ashland’s real name. Victor is understanding, thinking the man is covering up a painful past, like him. He was probably bullied since he came from nothing and became a tycoon. The Mustache understands why Victoria fell for him. He defends Ash, who he thinks does right by Victoria. He took chemo so he could spend more time with their daughter. Nikki knows it helps that he’s not Billy. Victor says he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He’s a ne’er-do-well well and Ash is more of a man than Billy Boy ever will be.”

Ashland walks in and can answer that. “No. He wouldn’t care a bit!”
