Yes! It's complicated and messy and difficult, and he wants to do the right thing. Unlike many people in Salem, he seems to comprehend that a baby is a person as opposed to a prop in a happy family narrative.

"I don't understand why you're being so passive about it." Thank you, Sami! I don't get Will's passivity either.
Because God forbid he be a little ambivalent about the idea of being a father right now or a little uncertain about what he really wants and what this means.
I love that Will is being passive, that he's uncertain, that he's maybe even a little scared. I want him to be conflicted between not wanting the responsibility of fatherhood at this point in his life, yet not being able to deal with idea of never really knowing his own child. It's real and is complicated and it's not necessarily pretty. It's exactly the way he's been acting all along and it's consistent.
Although, I do wish Will had reached out to someone.
