I couldn't care less about the cute EJ/Johnny scenes - so they matter little to me as for how they affect Will, personally.
As for the fact that Nick's digging into the Will-shot-EJ cover-up, yes of course that will invariably require EJ to play a semi-large role, which I find annoying, but whatever - yes, that involves good drama. The concern for me is that this becomes more of an EJ/Will story and less of Lucas/Will story down the line. One can argue that it makes more sense or makes better drama for it to be more about Will and EJ knowing what he did and letting him get away with it, etc. I will just always disagree, for no more elegant, sophisticated or intelligent reason than that I could do with MUCH less EJ on my screen, could do with more Lucas on my screen, and am really missing seeing a father/grown-up son-working-together dynamic -- one that we haven't REALLY seen -- between Lucas and Will. Which is why this spoiler really excites me - should it play to this dynamic. And yes - EJ is no stranger to being denied paternal rights, has a bond with Will for better or worse, can give legal advice, was a very key player in Will's attempted murder, I am not even going to touch on the EJami connection now, etc. So of course he has a role in the storyline. But I just feel that the stronger source of drama for ME is between Lucas and Will, for the EJ cover up, for the fact that Lucas didn't know Will - WILL - was his son, for that fact that Lucas and Sami were themselves engaged in a heated custody fight OVER WILL, etc. And so far, even though I could do with more Lumi interaction talking about their son, and their one scene last week will not satisfy me nor fill what I feel is an appropriate "quota" should that be that last we see for awhile, at least it looks like Lucas and Will will be getting a storyline together. Kinda. So that makes me happy. I just hope it doesn't go down from there.
