Lucas didn't freak when Will first came out. He was surprised, I guess, caught off guard a little - but that convo he and Will had when Will first came out was very understanding. It wasn't until later that the writers decided he should have an issue with it. Sami did freak out, however, and left the room.
While yes ideally, I would like EJ to have no part in this story, I realize that is not exactly reasonable: He has helped Will in the past, he is a lawyer, it's part of the Ejami reconnection storyline, it's EJ so he can't not be front-and-center in a big storyline, etc. I am not sure if I think of this as EJ "usurping" Lucas's fatherly role - maybe a little. But my concern is more from a show perspective, that to make room for EJ and his-related story bits within this storyline, there just isn't room for Lucas to figure prominently. It's Ejami plotting and scheming and not Lumi plotting and scheming, or even Lucate plotting and scheming, etc. And that is my concern and source of unhappiness/annoyance, should that come to pass. While I understand that Lucas isn't exactly a primary player on the show, in THIS storyline he does have a very valid, important and legit place. He is very much relevant. So should he figure marginally in the story - a fear informed by Lucas's general lack of airtime, the fact that I very much agree the writers consider him irrelevant (which is bullshit), recent tweets and spoilers (which I realize aren't gospel, but they aren't painting a great picture) - I won't be happy. I just hope I am pleasantly surprised.
And if it turns out EJ and Sami are making all the decisions and shown having all the discussions (esp. discussions which lay people and not just lawyers are capable of conducting), and Lucas is involved only occasionally at best, then I say in this storyline, yes that WOULD be EJ usurping Lucas's fatherly role. Or at least the show placing priority on one relationship over another. While understandable and something I should just swallow and get over, t'would still suck.
