It makes no sense to me that Will would hit Nick and threaten to kill him because of Nick's role in the drafting of a custody agreement that would allow him to see Arianna every other week end and trying to manipulate Gabi into cutting him out of her life would voluntarily chose to go to prison for years during which he would not likely see her more than once or twice a month in a prison visit setting.

Finally, I think I can understand Will's motivation. He was affected by his dad trying to take the rap for him again and I think he feels that Sonny killed Nick for him (everyone trying to do things for him). And I understand why Will and Sonny are not talking about this. Will didn't want to talk to anyone until it was too late. It's stupid but I can understand it.
I'll give the writers credit. Will is not supposed to be acting rationally. He's acting out of guilt and fear and the combination of both his father and Sonny being suspected for a murder that if either one did - they did it on his behalf just proved too much for him. The writers have laid a lot of groundwork for Will's guilt and his impulsiveness (as well as Lucas having role modeled that sacrificing yourself is noble) so that the behavior is not out of the blue. And refusing to get a lawyer is just part of the very obvious impulse to throw himself down as the sacrificial lamb.
As much as I hate that Nicole shredded those documents, I think the writers have also tried to explain her motives there as well. Though, it's more jarring since she was seen working so hard to clear Eric. But self-destruction is in character for her.
I can think of many examples where plot driven actions did seem out of the blue and there's been no attempt to explain it.
And I hope that Hope mentions that it's surprisingly common for people to confess to crimes they didn't commit once Will is exonerated.
