Maybe I just want to hug him. ;) I don't know...I just love that character, flaws and all. And his sad faces get me every time. Anyway, I totally understand where you're coming from. I guess "berate" may not be the right word, and I do agree Will needed to hear what Lucas had to say...I just wish Lucas had come across a little...I don't know..quieter? It just seemed like he was yelling at him more than trying to understand where his head is at. Maybe that will come today.

Yeah, I didn't mean tending to the baby was the priority, as of course there is no physical baby there to tend to. I meant dealing with the fallout of the announcement, and the handling of the "baby" situation, to put it a little crudely, if that makes sense. Addressing what has just happened, focusing on the decisions he has made regarding the life he has created. It makes absolute sense that he would want to find Sonny, I wouldn't have expected him not to - it's the man he loves whom he has hurt, and Will realizes this and is scared. Makes sense. But in light of what has just been revealed, and the reality in which Will now finds himself, I don't think exposing this truth and allowing it to just exist there was the best handling of the situation. And perhaps why Lucas was insistent that Will address this first before looking for Sonny.
I'll quote this one, but it also pertains to esp13
. I do agree that Will probably could have handled things better. He did basically just run off after the announcement, but at the same time I get it. He is panicking over Sonny. Was it the best way to handle things with Gabi? Probably not, but I think it was a human response and I don't hate him for it. I'm not really happy with the way Gabi and Nick(especially Nick) have basically been trying to push Will into this so I'm not really having a whole lot of sympathy for either one of them. I know Will had a choice and he could have stepped up before now, but I think he's been having doubts for a while and at least he finally decided to do so. I think that was a first step and I'm pretty sure he wouldn't have done so if he really didn't want to have anything to do with this baby. Anyway, I agree with you that he maybe should have handled it better, but really...I don't blame him for running after Sonny either. It just didn't bother me as much as it did others. :smile:
And I also didn't like the way Lucas kind of berated him. That poor kid needs a hug and someone who will listen to him, but at the same time I do get that Lucas was trying to talk to him and Will really wasn't interested at that time...so I guess I can see why Lucas would get upset. Oh, the angst! Can't wait for today.
I don't BLAME him for going after Sonny either, I never BLAMED him for that, and I have said repeatedly that I understand. But I also understand Lucas for saying or thinking that answering for what happened in the church and Will's thinking over the well-being of the child is more important, and I agree. And I also don't agree that Lucas berated him, but whatever. What he told Will needed to be said, and I actually saw Will reflect on a choice and not act in front of his father like he knows everything, which is often the attitude I get from him in Willucas convos. So I really appreciated that. Lucas doesn't know everything either, but as I have also said this particulate turn of events hold such an emotional potency for Lucas, that I don't blame his tunnel-vision in speaking from a perspective informed purely by his own experiences, own memories and own hurt. I am not so fond of Will that I think everyone should stop what they are doing to hug him, I guess. I have no doubt that Will will be supported - but in the shock of the reveal, for emotions to run high is not some inexplicable or condemnable thing imo.
