Oh, I know why they're doing it from a soap standpoint. I still find it to be stupid, though. You can still write a soapy story if you give multiple characters a brain and a backbone. In fact, I think this story would be better if they did.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
That might be true (although the popular perception of coercion and the legal definition aren't always the same) but the only way to prove he was coerced is to reveal that he shot EJ and Nick blackmailed him. That's not exactly a good scenario.
It's obvious to me that Will, and probably Gabi, will end up with custody in the end. I just hate the fact that Will signs over his rights in the first place. Now his has been willing to give up his baby not once, but twice
. I don't care if he was coerced, it still looks bad.
Maybe I'm just a softy but for ME, what it boils down to is that Will (and Gabi for that matter) are scared kids who have suddenly been thrust into VERY adult, life altering situation. Will has a HELL of a lot to work through, and I find it unrealistic and unfair to expect Will to just be able to flip a switch and suddenly become a confident bad ass.
And if you don't agree with that assessment, try looking at it from a soap opera writers stand point - they have to drag this shit out and ratchet up the twists and turns for MONTHS and MONTHS and MONTHS. This is how they're doing it.
I would have more sympathy for Will if he hadn't shown some balls in the past. But he has. I want that Will back. I realize that was different writers, but still...
