I'm also pretty impressed how they are laying down threads that may not have an immediate impact, but certainly will later on. Like you said, Nick's first play is likely intimidating #TeamWill by making it clear that they use Nick's criminal past in a custody fight, then #TeamGabi will have a very similar card to play. It's not a bad play, but Nick may have miscalculated the response to his threat by #TeamWill. It's just going to incite them more, especially Sami. If she feels there is the possiblity of Will getting thrown in jail, she's going to lash out and make more threats. And like you said, these additional threats will be what makes Gabi agree to switch the paternity test. To this end, it may not have been a miscalculation on Nick's part at all. That is, he may have wanted the tension to escalate so that Gabi would agree to switch the results. In that way, the jail threat could've been a calculated play to incite Sami. I'd love that - very Machiavellian.
To me, Gabi and Will make perfect pawns. Gabi has been insecure and malleable for quite awhile, so it's not surprising that she's simply a puppet in all this. And Will has consistently been very naive. Even when he tried to be more sinister (like when he tried to blackmail EJ), it became clear that he's not a born schemer. At the end of the day, he simply doesn't have much evilness in him and that makes it hard for him to understand and predict what evil people will do.
