SERIOUSLY!!! CM didn't get an Emmy for his portrayal of Boring Will or EJ's lapdog!! It was when he was being a little asshole to his mother and freaking out about being gay. Dark Will is when I started to give a shit about him. And considering who his parents are, this should be a no-brainer!!! Backburn his piece of shit mom and give WilSon some story!!!

Having any character whether it be Lucas or Victor say how awesome a couple they are just feels like the writers are telling us the audience what we already know - because there was such a long wait for them to get together. So, it wasn't objecting to the content of the scenes so much as how they came off as propping.
I wonder if a story is being set up where since pretty much all of Salem is lining up to support Will and Sonny, if someone (Jennifer? Nick? Kristen?) will step to voice their disapproval and a civil war of sorts. There is no doubt in my mind this relationship is being built up so strongly so that it's destruction is even more stark and damaging.
So what's the over/under for when people start bitching about how the writers have botched Kristen's return or screwed up her character or are otherwise not writing her the way the fans think she should be written? October 17? Or will the honeymoon be longer, say October 25?
I don't mind that nobody has a problem with Wilson's relationship, but I do have a problem with the fact that Will has reset back to his pre-EJ's Smithers phase. Dark!Will actually had the potential to put natural tension between Wilson. Right now, there are two nice guys who are into each other but inexplicably not having sex or even being that sexual with each other beyond some kissing. (I seem to recall a lot more sexual tension in the early days of Nuke when they show was bending over to explain why they hadn't had sex and put up road blocks to that sex.)
But yeah, I'm pretty sure they are setting up Wilson for some angsty thing. My hope is that it won't be a Will/Gabi shotgun wedding but rather Sonny being just freaked over his boyfriend impregnating a girl right before they hooked up. But really? I can't see Sonny being that upset, because that was before he and Will were together.
But seriously, the writers need to exploit the fact that Will should be an emotional trainwreck. Sonny can be Mister Stability.
