I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder. I saw shell-shocked Will say over and over he wanted to support Gabi and do what was right for the baby from moment one. But, you make a good point in that the very idea that he would lose Sonny over the baby was generated and promoted by Nick and Gabi over and over and over. Every time Will wanted to tell the truth, they something to the effect of "of course you can, we're not trying to stop you but you'll lose Sonny." In the beginning, before Nick's secret plan, Will expressed that this would make it difficult but not that he would lose Sonny. Should Will have let them get away with it? Of course not, but it's fundamentally immoral to expect a person to give up the rights of their child without counseling and legal protection for everyone, especially the child. But Nick said over and over that this has to be a secret, even though any sane person in that situation would have gone to a family lawyer ASAP - and it all could have been handled discreetly.
But the show I was watching also had Will saying over and over again, he didn't want his child to grow up in a broken home. You saw him looking at Johnny and EJ together sadly, and thinking about being a pawn in the war between his parents. He brought up the broken home issue way before the Sonny issue. If the show now wants to retcon that as being all about Sonny, even though Will has been portrayed by being scarred by his childhood from day one and he's only known Sonny for less than two years, his broken childhood was apparently the excuse he was using? Apparently, that's what this week's writers have decided, but it certainly wasn't the show I was watching.
edited to reflect immoral and immortal not being same! But that is my favorite spelling error I've ever made.
