I agree with you. It played much better simply because Will was so clearly upset. It seemed obvious to me that Sonny was picking up on Will's distress and simply reminding him that Gabi's problems are (as far as Sonny knows) Gabi's problems and wanting Will to snap out of it. This is particularly true given that Will and Sonny were in the midst of the afterglow when Will left. I didn't find Sonny insensitive at all.

I guess I'm the only person who didn't find Sonny's comment insensitive. When I read the Day Ahead summary (and everyone's comments), I was prepared for it to sound insensitive, but I don't think that it came across that way at all.
From Sonny's perspective, Will entered the apartment at the end of the episode looking completely deflated. Sonny was simply putting things into perspective -- as far as he's aware, Gabi's problem isn't
Will's problem, so Will doesn't need to beat himself up over it. Will was acting like it was his problem (because it is), and Sonny picked up on that.
Kate's not in a funk because Marlena's having problems with Kristen, Brady's not miserable because Nicole has just lost her child, Sonny didn't react nearly as badly as Will did [in this episode] when Abby lost Jack -- people can be supportive friends without letting their friends' problems sink them into a deep depression. I think that Sonny was just trying to remind Will of that.
Maybe my love for Will and Sonny is blinding me. :shrug:
