I think the way they built the Ejill relationship makes it somewhat believable. First, they started with Will being forced to do EJ's bidding because of what EJ had on him. Then, they showed Will seeing how mad the relationship with EJ made Sami, which of course thrilled him. Next, they started in with the gifts - big ones that are likely to turn the head of a 18-year-old young man. Finally, they showed why Will may actually like working for EJ because of the power it gave him. And most important of all, they still show them as being pretty hostile toward toward each other. Will might like the benefit of working for EJ, but they are being careful to not show Will as really liking EJ yet.
Ejill has actually gotten a slower, more step-by-step build than most couples on this show, LOL.
@CarlD2, it feels like MarDar shifted their writing for EJ after the Ejill story began. The steps toward softening up EJ (his sadness over Nicole/their baby, him being nice to Sami, his tears over Lexie's diagnosis, his hurt at Stefano's betrayal) have all come within the last month or so. So, I wouldn't be surprised for him to start showing genuine concern for Will as well (in fact, he already did in the scenes with Marlena). Not sure why the story shifted toward redeeming EJ to some degree, but it seems to be a recent new development.
