Of course, all of that having been said, Gabi dying and Nick being sent back to prison isn't the only way that Will and Sonny could obtain custody of the child. In fact, that implication is actually insulting -- like Will and Sonny are the least-acceptable option because they're gay, so the straight couple has to be removed from the equation so that Will and Sonny are the only option.

That's certainly not what I meant. It would actually be far more satisfying if Gabi and Nick remained in Salem, alive and out of prison, respectively, and were simply deemed unfit to raise a child (as they are, IMO, based on what we've seen -- at the very least, Nick is absolutely unfit to raise a child). Sole custody would be granted to Will and Sonny -- fair and square, as the best option for the child -- and Gabi and Nick would be forced to settle for, at best, supervised visitation rights (I would certainly never leave Nick alone with my child, if I were Will). That's the future that they wanted to impose on Will, and supervised visitation is better than what they wanted to give him, so they'd be lucky to receive that much. Frankly, I don't think that Nick deserves to be allowed to have anything to do with the baby, but I'm trying to be generous here.

I just don't like Gabi and Nick, so that's why death and prison would be preferable for me. The writers could still make it clear that Will and Sonny were the child's best option, and that it had simply been rendered a moot point when Gabi had died and Nick had been carted off to prison.

Anyway, that's enough speculation for one day! :lol:
Gabi is the weak link in the story. CB is just not able to make Gabi interesting enough to relate to or root for, and this story has given her interesting material. She's just not strong enough an actress or charismatic enough to make the most of it.

I would welcome a Gabi recast, if it was a strong young actress.

Also, there's another strange element in that Gabi and Will get along fine. There shouldn't be a custody battle, and without Nick there likely wouldn't be. Gabi's only onscreen relative likes and knows Will. Will likes and respects Gabi. Nick is gradually revealing his dark side.

An alternative to Will & Sonny getting the child would be Will and Gabi sharing custody, but that causing friction between Wilson (though that seems like a stretch, too). I can only imagine Will trying to take his daughter from her mother if he thought Nick was super abusive to Gabi and Gabi stayed beyond reason. But that would require the above mentioned strong actress.
