You know I've been so focused on Justin/Adrienne's points of view regarding Alex that I totally missed the whole adoption angle. I had kind of forgotten that the twins were adopted. That kind of pisses me off now in regards to Adrienne's attitude toward Will. I mean, I know she has reason to be pissed because he did lie after all. But still, you'd think she might have just a little bit of compassion for what he was going through. I don't know, maybe I'm expecting too much. :) I love Adrienne. She's part of the Johnson family (my favorite family on this show), but she's been rubbing me the wrong way lately with her attitude towards Will. I think Justin is being very understanding, maybe because he kind of has an inkling of how Will feels. I just wish Adrienne was a little more understanding as well. But I get why she feels the way she does....being in mama bear mode and all. I just don't like it much. :(

I'm kind of anxious for this Will/Justin conversation. I really wish that someone would address the similarities between Justin and Will. Even if Justin didn't know for sure that Angelica was carrying his child, I'm sure he had his suspicions and I don't think he let on to Adrienne about that. I don't remember the story well but I'm pretty sure he kept his affair secret, no? I really want Justin or Adrienne to speak up about what they were feeling during that time, and how they got through it. I still can't see T as matchmaker given the way he treated them both not that long ago. I like T now, but it just isn't realistic, although I do kind of hope to see him again. I think Abby would make the most sense, since she is cousin to both Will and Sonny. If they don't involve her somehow in their reconciliation, then I think they are missing the boat. It just makes sense. I agree about Will moping around town again. So tired of that. Maybe the happiness he has over the baby will kind of even the sadness out so that it isn't as pronounced. Actually, once he sees Sonny kissing Brian and thinks they slept together..maybe we'll get a more angry Will instead of mopey? I'd rather he were angry I think, than crying all the time....even though I do think he cries better than anyone on this show. :)
Justin and Adrienne's POVs would be most welcome, especially since Adrienne raised Justin's son by Angelica as her own. Also, I wish that as the adopted parents of two (or three) sons, J&A could have been able to voice the idea that giving a child up for adoption is a giving, loving thing to do rather than "turning your back on your child" and being "weak and cowardly" as was expressed by some characters onscreen. Yes, I know Will didn't go about it the right way and there's a reason most adoptions are now open and bio parents get lots of counseling, there was still no person voicing the idea that giving up the child to loving stable parents might actually be a wise and mature thing for both Will and Gabi to consider. Even Sonny, who grew up with adopted brothers, could probably give a voice to that. Has a soap every had an open adoption story over the long term that worked and didn't end up with deception and baby switching?
As for Sonny, I really think he's hurt on multiple levels. He held Will's hand through the long, drawn out coming out angst and really thought Will had gotten through it. Even though it was a one-night lapse, finding out about it must have been a kick in Sonny's stomach even though he wasn't with Will at the time. On top of that, Will had unprotected sex.
Then, there was the deception about the baby. I still love the moment at the church where without words, FS played it so much like Sonny knew what Will was going to say before he said it. All the signs he missed were falling into place in his mind. And looking back on it, Will really slid into the lying. At first, he wasn't wrong not to tell anyone. He and Gabi needed to decide together what their options were and who to confide in. But once the Nick plan started swirling around, Will so needed help and didn't reach out to the one person, besides Marlena, that he could truly trust. That must have hurt more than the actual lie.
