I don't think any of the characters are being ruined. Well, Nick might be but I'm pretty sure he was destined for this when they brought him back. Will and Gabi are young adults in a difficult situation making bad (or at least not good) decisions. That's not ruining the characters, that's both consistent with their past (both have made bad choices in the past) and consistent with being young adults facing a difficult situation. Will isn't making this decision because he's an asshole who doesn't care, he'd doing because he believes it's the best thing for everybody, including the baby. He might be wrong, but his motivations aren't.

I love all of this because it's the very definition of good, soapy drama. I'm not sure anybody is 100% wrong in this scenario. A lot of people are trying to do the right thing, but going about it in the wrong way. That leaves so much good stuff when the truth finally comes out. There would be no entertainment if everybody did the exact right thing for the exact right reasons.
I agree. I think both Will and Gabi are looking vulnerable in this situation but it doesn't necessarily make them the villains here. They honestly think this is the best thing for the baby. But that doesn't mean it's going to last. I see this being one huge life lesson for Will in the long run that will most likely lead to him being the most amazing dad in the world. You never know. He'll probably take this time to reflect on things and realize that he hates the idea of Nick or anyone raising his child. Maybe he'll even realize how lucky he was as a child to have a father who wanted him from the very beginning. I can see this turning into quite an endearing story. Maybe I am giving the writers too much credit here but they do seem to do some things well on rare occasions and this story is one of them so far. Sure some characters are being sacrificed, mainly Nick. But I still see the guilt eating at Will the longer the charade goes on and Will deciding that he wants to be a father afterall and to hell with anyone who stands in his way. He's giving up for now because he's weak and he feels cornered possibly. But that isn't to say that he won't step up when the time is right and take responsibility for everything.
