I don't disagree with the assessment of who Nick is now, but I was referring to the multitude of opinions about how Nick is unfit because he's a convicted murderer and/or that Will is so much better than Nick because he only attempted to murder somebody.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Well, there might be a way that Will, EJ and Lucas an get their legal ducks in a row and do just that. PLUS, Sonny is a witness to Nick's blackmail threat. There HAS to be a way to have Will confess and NOT get thrown into jail. He was a minor, he was coerced into not turning himself in by a parent and the man he shot has NO desire to press charges. There are SO many extenuating circumstances that at the minimum, he could just get probation and only be forced to stay in Salem.
Sure, there are extenuating circumstances. Attempted murder can get you up to life in prison. I'm sure the extenuating circumstances in Will's case could get him down to 2 years or so (about half of what Nick served for murdering a scumbag while addicted to pain pills).
I continue to find it hilarious that Nick murdering Trent is the most heinous crime anyone has ever committed, but Will shooting EJ is no worse than jaywalking.
Well, I wasn't watching when this Nick stuff happened. So my point of view is based on what I'm seeing of him now. And I not only see a homophope, I see a seriously unbalanced individual who CLEARLY hasn't worked out the issues that lead him to becoming 1) an addict 2) a creepy obessed stalker 3) a murderer.
And the fact that he's trying to convince himself and everyone that marrying Gabi and raising the baby will just "erase" all of his problems and his personal history, sends up BIG HONKIN' RED FLAGS and warning light to anyone with a brain.
So, yeah, I'm inclined to give Will more of a pass. He was a KID and he was instructed by his PARENTS to do the wrong thing. And hasn't he kept his nose clean since?
As for Will, has he really kept his nose clean? He was working for EJ and willingly doing illegal things (including helping to rig an election). He's been on the good side of things since then, but it's not like shooting EJ was Will's only crime.
And, to be clear, I don't think Nick is a good guy. And if it were just about Will, I'd totally be on Will's side. But Nick compared to EJ and Sami is pretty much an equal match of creepy, criminal, obessesive behavior.
