Please don't confuse a disagreement with Will about how he handled things with a lack of sympathy for why. I think Will has handled this all wrong from the beginning, but it doesn't mean I hate him or don't sympathize with him. Hell, Will's the only character I actually like in this story. Well, I like Nick, but only in the sense that he makes a great antagonist for all of this stuff.

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.
