I think it's two parts with Nick...he's definitely uncomfortable every time he sees Will and Sonny because of his views on gays...but he's also showing some signs of jealousy toward the friendship that Will has with Gabi. He's being written more and more as obsessive over Gabi. I have to say if this dynamic continues after he finds out about Gabi's baby being Will's then it could cause some real drama for the Hortons and I couldn't be more glad that at least the focus will be on two cousins that are Hortons over any other family.

There have already been several subtle hints (that could easily be missed or dismissed, but were there nevertheless) that Nick still has that obsessive nature that he previously had. The most recent (before Thursday's episode, anyway) was when he declared his love for Gabi, and she said that she felt the same way. To most people, that probably would have been enough, but Nick had to hear the actual words, "I love you."
It's also clear that Nick gets pissed off every time Will and Sonny are around -- Gabi thinks that it's just because of Nick's feelings about gay people, but (to me, anyway) it's obvious that Nick is also annoyed whenever Gabi's attention is not focused entirely on him.
Just speculation on my part at this point, but as far as I'm concerned, Nick hasn't changed -- he's still unbalanced, and it's only a matter of time before that part of his personality fully emerges again.
Yeah, speculation indeed.
I don't think him wanting hear her say she loves him means he's obsessive again. I'd want to hear it from my SO too. Nick getting pissed off whenever WilSon are around is a big reach. He's genuinely uncomfortable around them. It's got nothing to do with Gabi and not much to do with WilSon themselves for that matter. Nick explicitly said it's his issue.
I don't know...Nick seemed awfully pissed to me, not uncomfortable. When Will says he needed Gabi's help Nick says "typical". What?! How is that typical? Since when does he act like that towards Will? He acted like Will was a big jerk, and like he's always been one. I thought they were cousins and that he loved Will. He didn't act that way here. I got a jealous vibe from he as well. I think he's going to go crazy when he hears she got knocked up by Will. I hate it because I really like sweet Nick. Don't like him when he acts like this.
Seriously this is way more than Nick just being uncomfortable. He's being an outright homophobic bigoted jerk to Will who is his cousin and history wise, he has no reason whatsoever to hate. But he hates him and that's pretty clear. Today's scenes alone show that Nick can't stand him and hates the fact that Gabi is hanging out with him. The fact that he's jealous because Gabi confided in Will and is working on a school project with him screams instability and borderline psychotic behaviour. He knows Will is gay so there should be no reason for Nick to be jealous or insecure or possessive over Gabi. I agree that Nick is going to go right over the edge when he finds out this is Will's baby. Whether he reacts impulsively or is more calculated about it, we'll see. But he's going to do something and it's not going to be pretty.
