The fact that Will showed more loyalty toward the man he tried to kill over the father that went to prison so he wouldn't have to and almost died as a result of going to prison IMHO has terribly hurt the character of Will. The fact that the previous writing team didn't utilize CM's strength acting wise to play Ej and get the upper hand on him truly destroyed everything that Will had been in my eyes. Will was loyal to his father and mother and all of a sudden he could care less about both, but was licking Ej's ass every time he could. I'm glad that Lucas called him out, it's about damn time someone does...

So, right - Lucas just yelled at Will, and I suspect some will be unhappy. And ideally I would have loved for him to say you are right the custody battles sucked, I get it. And I think he does.
But this is what I have been feeling for the longest time now, since the reveal of Lucas going to prison for Will. And then I think of all Will has said regarding his upbringing. Not that Will is wrong. Not that his memories aren't valid. But I agree with Lucas that yeah, maybe he does need to be reminded of the sacrifices, b/c I don't think he remembers. There was a very real reason why Will needed to go to Switzerland - and it wasn't because that was part of some custody saga too. And for the custody battles that went on when Will was very young, once his parents agreed to joint custody, I do recall them trying to give their son a stable as home as they could provide. They often failed, and it must have been hard to see his parents get together again and fall apart. But a part of me really loves Lucas saying what he is saying right now - it's been what I have been wanting to yell at Will since I can remember.
