ITA....it's more about having the scenes play out that should have played out earlier in the week or last week, but instead other people get exchanges that pretty much belonged to Will's parents....

Well, whaddya know! There's Lucas. Going to see Sami. About their son. The way some people talk, you'd think he hadn't been on screen for 2 months, not 2 days/episodes and wasn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never.
Em, no that's not it. I mean, yes I don't know if and when he will be seen again. I mean, I knew this was coming from spoilers, and from what I have read there isn't another mention of him in the next few weeks, but that is spoilers. But that it's taken THIS LONG for Lucas and Sami to have a conversation about Will. And the first things out of Sami's mouth are, the kids are all at sleepovers - not even CONSIDERING that Will's situation might be a timely topic of discussion for she and Lucas together, his parents. It's not that I worry he isn't going to be seen again until the 12th of never. I mean, I do, as all signs indicate that, but whatever. It's that given who he is, that he is Will's father, that he and Sami were once, you know, married and together, that they were friends, that they have a history, he is only a marginal figure in this storyline. I know the storyline is nascent, and if the writers are more interested in telling other stories, that is fine. But that is what is upsetting. And here Lucas is, immediately talking about Ejami. B/c that is all that really matters, right? Not that I blame him for making the observations he's making. But that is just me maybe.
The way some ppl talk, this is the concern - the frustration that it makes perfect sense for Lucas to be more of a participant in the story, and he is relegated to the sidelines (other than the great convos with Will last week, but again those were isolated. Once they were done, he was just gone). Trust me, if in a few weeks he does become a very active, involved participant, I will be shouting from the rooftops with glee, admitting I had jumped to conclusions too soon. But I suspect that won't be happening.
