It seems EJ/Will scenes matter MORE than Will/Lucas scenes, as others have said before me, it's bullsh*t!
I think the EJill scenes today were as much about setting up the next parts of the story as about EJill bonding: EJ's reminiscing about Johnny sets up the scenes where he overhears Johnny talking about Rafe, the talk about Sami's love wreaking havoc sets up what is going to happen with Nabi/Wilson.
I think this is exactly what the deal was.

It's not as if EJ and Will's friendship has happened overnight. They were shown to grow closer during the year or so that Will was working for EJ. EJ mentioned the other day that his previous conversation with Will had gone well and Sami agreed. Will certainly showed his loyalty to EJ during the Daysaster stuff. Will has had at least one conversation with Lucas about the impact of becoming a father (a really, really well done scene as I recall). I don't think it's realistic that a young man would have conversations about fatherhood with just their own Dad - and I also like the aspect that Will knows what a shit EJ was when he became a father. So it makes sense that he'd be curious to hear the impact it had on EJ - and how quickly it happened.

I do think they are missing a lot of subtext by keeping Lucas so far removed from the story and it's a shame. But I don't think it's being done in order to insert EJ into the story. I'm not sure it would make any difference at all if EJ were there or not - Lucas likely would still not be featured.
I agree completely.

Honestly, it bothers me a lot that Lucas is not on more- but that is a completely separate thought for me from what I thought about EJ & Will yesterday. I loved their scenes and love their interaction. In this particular story, it makes sense that EJ is involved because Will's mother is romantically involved with him and it is EJ's father from whom they sought assistance. That doesn't mean that in addition to the lovely interaction between EJ & Will that I would not love to also see more Lucas/Will interaction.

Unfortunately, this writing team does not want to write for Lucas and that doesn't have anything to do with the character of EJ I don't think. It is a shame though because aside from enjoying Lucas myself, this writing team- whether they want to write for him or not, have done a good job writing for him in the few scenes he has had. I have found Lucas' interaction with everyone to be done quite well.

I like Will has a relationship with EJ. I even don't mind that he has one with Rafe...because it fits with the story to me- and that is saying something because I really, really don't like Rafe.

At any rate, the show was great and the dancing extra was the bee's knees. I really enjoyed watching Sami fighting like that and the Kristen scenes had me torn up. Just wish Drake would rise the occasion a little more.
