Oh, the angst! I really wish Will and Sonny could have had just 1 or 2 more days of happiness before the shit hit the fan. So I saw the scenes for Monday and while Will does not react too much to Gabi saying that he is in love with Sonny...I'm not really upset. I think maybe he just takes it as a given. It's not like he argued that it was too soon for that or anything. I think he is just so concerned about this baby drama that that is really the only thing he can think about right now. As far as thinking Will should be more concerned with Sonny and not "Gabi's distress"...well it's his distress too. He is the father. Maybe not all guys would look at it that way, but from what we've seen so far from Will..he is taking responsibility and to him this really is affecting him. He said he couldn't sleep either..I think it is all he can think about right now. I think the marriage proposal was just Will wanting to do the right thing. We know he isn't in love with Gabi, but he wants to take responsibility and he is young..this was just his way of doing that. It didn't bother me that much. I think he does love Sonny...but he is feeling a lot of guilt and pressure over this baby. I don't expect him to be making goo goo eyes right this second. He's very worried.

I hate that Will even offered to marry Gabi, but I'm hoping that it comes across on-screen better than it does in the summary.
I guess that I just don't see what other people are seeing (with regards to Will not being "into" Sonny) because I think that it's clear that the writers want Will and Sonny to be together. I mean, they've only been setting them up as a couple for the past year and a half. If there's any couple on-screen right now (not counting married couples) that is obviously going to be together in the end, it's definitely Will and Sonny, IMO. The rest is just angst to prolong everything and make the final payoff more rewarding.
I suppose that I wouldn't be completely opposed to Will and Sonny each having other boyfriends for a while (or even permanently), if more gay characters actually existed (and I'm not talking about minor characters like Brian; I'm talking about contract characters like Will and Sonny who are actually seen regularly -- Brian could, of course, be one such character, but he isn't currently, and we know that the actor isn't available for that kind of commitment), but I just don't believe that the writers have any intention of breaking Will and Sonny up for any significant length of time.
I think the lack of other gay characters is the only reason WilSon probably have a chance of surviving. But I see that as the only reason. If this were real life, WIll would be moving on to someone new in about a month. He is very much is mother's son and I see him more as the "love the one you're with" type at least with Sonny. I'm sure Will cares about Sonny but nowhere near the intensity and adoration with which Sonny loves Will. I just don't see it being on equal footing right now. He comes across as caring more about Gabi's distress at this very moment as opposed to protecting and saving his relationship with Sonny. Maybe that will change after he finds out from his dad that Sonny loves him. But as of this episode, I don't see it. However, this is most likely just angst unless they bring on another gay character.
