If people are going to go after Nick and or Gabi I see no problem with Nick using what he knows to protect themselves. I rather see them be proactive than reactive to the situation. It would be more interesting to watch them fight than do nothing and just coward in fear.

I don't think anyone will be going after Nick and Gabi. I just see Will wanting to be part of his child's life now that everything will be out in the open. That isn't going against anyone, that is fighting for what you believe in. IF anyone will be the one targeted for changing his mind, it will probably be Will and Nick will be the one that goes up against him trying to fight for Gabi and her child. When in reality, he should take himself out of the equation, be a step dad to the child and have Will and Gabi coparent while Nick and Gabi are together as a couple and Wilson are together as a couple. Of course if that happens then there will be no story and no soap...so expect the long custody wars to start as soon as this child comes into the world.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Exactly. Will could still be in a big legal mess even if EJ doesn't want to press charges. Heck, in the twisted world of soap opera, I could see EJ appointing himself as Will's lawyer (to impress Sami, of course) to defeat attempted murder charges. I would actually find that kind of hilarious.
While it is up to the DA, options are severely restricted, especially since the statue of limitations might have passed. So, there's that. There's also the fact that Will was a minor, so he'd have to be tried as a minor. That means, he'd have to be sentenced as a minor, and since EJ lived that would only be a couple of years at max, but if EJ is uncooperative - or even stands up for Will - parole is probably the most reasonable thing a prosecutor could expect. Will's lawyer could negotiate a parole deal, which EJ could endorse, in about an hour. I actually want that to happen, so this won't hang over Will's head.

But if EJ lies to the DA and says it is Lucas, I can't see any DA taking it forward. Nick's leverage is very flimsy. Also, Lucas could sue for wrongful imprisonment (even though he confessed, he still could) and the DA wouldn't want that either.

Gabi is in a lot more legal trouble.
How? Andrew is dead, Melanie has already said she does not want to testify against Gabi and there's no physical evidence connecting Gabi to anything (unless I'm mistaken and if I am please explain.) Chad's statement is hearsay and can't be offered to prove anything. Chad, IMO is in more trouble than anyone. There's eyewitness testimony and physical evidence to back up what he did to Nick.
Rafe knows all about what Gabi did, if he's asked by the DA, he could lose his career if he lies. Of course, Rafe has done that kind of thing before. Also, I'm pretty sure there's a social media footprint via both the internet and text messages that would lead prosecutors to find a connection between Gabi and Andrew. Also, if asked by prosecutors, I doubt Melanie would obstruct justice to protect Gabi - even though she chose not to come forward earlier. And even if they can't get her on accessory to kidnapping, which she's definitely guilty of, they can certainly get Gabi on obstruction of justice.

Will could probably be gotten on obstruction as well, but again he was a minor at the time. It's probably Lucas who would get in trouble for perjury or obstruction, but he was a father protecting his son and a jury/prosecutors might see him differently. Gabi looking to save her own skin because her little stalking scheme literally exploded in her face isn't going to be seen a noble.

It's also one of those cases that I'm sure the public would clamor for her head on a platter given the widespread destruction her actions caused, even though she's only tangentially responsible for most of Andrew's actions. All except Jennifer, of course, because the daysaster freed her up to date Orange Glow, for which she's obviously grateful.

Nick is going to use the fact that Will shot EJ against him, okay...
But... Sonny also knows about Gabi's mess, so WilSon vs Nabi?
Yeah but Chad badgered Sonny to keep his mouth shut otherwise Chad will end up in jail. So Sonny can't say a thing.

Sonny might take that chance so Will won't loose his kid....

I would find it weird if they had Will using Gabi's daysaster actions to send her to jail. Will has made his own mistakes, and his own mother has made a long list of them as well. He and Gabi are always portrayed as close and getting along well, unless someone else is interfering. It's possible Will will turn on her, but I doubt it. I think he'll want to work something out with Gabi, but others around him probably won't.

Pretty much all of this. I just don't like the idea of Nick trying to put Will in prison or blackmailing him with the possibility of it so that he can have Will's kid. If he goes this route, I want it to blow up in his face. Nick's been too aggressive and abrasive in pursuing this stitched together little family of his and it is extremely off-putting. He is barely civil with anyone. To Nick, Gabi and the baby are already his possessions. Nick's initial protectiveness of Gabi against Chad was endearing but it's taken on an increasingly ugly edge. I hope Nick is eventually redeemed when they wind up this storyline. The visceral reactions I have to him right now are a testament to Blake's effectiveness with the role.

Honestly this wedding sounds more of a Safe angst I definitely think Sami and Rafe are not over since Gary Tomlin loves Safe and is on Team GG and AS, I can see Safe getting back together by November and having some wonderful moment by Summer their love and feelings come to back, I can see Sami daydreaming about Rafe I wouldn't be surprised if she calls out Rafe's name while in Bed with EJ. Now I can totally see Sami going to EJ because of her fight with Rafe cause now her and Rafe doesn't look like they are getting back together. I can see Rafe actually trying to move on with his life and it's Sami who won't be able to move on from Rafe, technically it was Sami's fault that she is the one who ruined her marriage by sleeping with her kidnapper, rapist beast. Sami is disgusting truly disgusting. I still say there is a SAFE baby coming up down the road. Or maybe even a new woman for Rafe I am not even a SAFE now I hate Both SAFE and EJAMI.

I agree. If Nick was out of the picture, Gabi and Will would be able to work things out like civilised people. But Nick is possessive, controlling and a homophope. And constantly whispering his agenda in confused and weak willed Gabi's ear. He's barely tolerating Will's presence at the moment and rub Will out of Gabi and the baby's life. Nick's obsessed with creating this perfect life he's got in his head. He's desperate. I hope the writer's explore what got him to this point. Didn't they hint at some prison back story for Nick this year?

god knows i'm no chad fan but how did he become the evil villian in this story
He became the villain when the writers decided Gabi was the show's next young female heroine. Yeah, it sickens me, too.

I only hope Blake is right with his statement of mass hysteria erupting. This show needs some chaos.

I also want Rafe to go to jail for beating Chad.
I like the way you think.

I don't see Will going after them but I can see other people trying to influence him to step up to get custody or them wanting to go after Nick/Gabi themself. If Nick/Gabi feel threaten I can see them wanting to use what they know to get people to back off. I have no problem with that.

The only part I don't get is why Sami and Rafe go at. I mean, I get the intial conflict if Sami doesn't know that Will knows he's the father. But once Will steps out, why is Sami so mad at Gabi? (Other than that it's Sami). That part feels contrived to me. Not that I'm against it because it might actually end the triangle of suck for awhile and EJ is FF material at this point, but I hope the big fight makes more sense than it sounds like it does right now.
Yeah, I'm hoping it will escalate in a realistic way. My one guess is that the Safe fight may bring out some of the issues they've alluded to recently, but haven't fully addressed. That is, Rafe has made a few negative observations about Sami's actions/character over the past few weeks/months. And when he has expressed them to her, she hasn't reacted well. So they've laid at least some groundwork for Rafe's judgments about Sami to be an issue that could blow up if they are in the midst of a fight.
I would venture to guess that Sammi is made because she went out of her way to arrange a nice wedding for Gabi, whilst all along Gabi was planning on robbing Sammi of being a grandmother to her own grandchild for like forever. Because we all know gay guys make lousy Dads, right?

I don't see Will going after them but I can see other people trying to influence him to step up and get custody etc. He's been written like a spineless jellyfish so I can see him possibly going along with it. And if Nick/Gabi feel threaten I can see them wanting to use what they know to get people to back off.
I think Sonny will eventually have a spine big enough for the both of them and encourage Will to fight for joint custody.

Funny how Rafe did the very same thing to E.J. that Gabi is doing to Will. Playing god and lying about the paternity of a baby because they don't approve of the real father. I'm surprised E.J. hasn't had him whacked for that one.

I agree. Sami will yell at Gabi for lying and keeping secrets. Rafe will step in and say Sami has done her share of that kind of thing. Sami will turn on him and call him the King of Keeping Secrets and it will go from there.

Just that quickly, the whole thing will become all about them, and everyone else is secondary.

I kind of despise Chad.He is following Gabi and eavesdropping on a confidential conversation between a doctor and patient then he lies to Abby about his feelling about the Gabi situation after having previously been dishonest with Abby when he began "having feelings" for Melanie.Chad made the decision to beat up Nick,who had gone to prison and actually paid for his crimes unlike many others in Salem then he chose to be dishonest with Melanie which is part of the reason she broke the engagement and left town.Chad did not pay for assaulting Nick and he is already trying to move on with Abby so why is he still trying to punish Gabi.
Gabi made mistakes in not reporting Andrew when she found out about Melanie but Gabi is only nineteen or twenty and she panicked when Andrew recorded their conversation and said he would expose her and she did try to help Melanie escape Andrew.Judgement is not the best at that age.Gabi was sorry for what she did and attempted to turn herself in to the police to pay for what she did which is also more than can be said about quite a few in Salem who were a lot older than Gabi when they intentionally committed their crimes(Stefano,Kate,Victor,Kristen,Sami,EJ).If Chad had reported what Gabi did as soon as he heard what Andrew said to Gabi and/or not beaten up Nick,Gabi would likely have been arrested.Gabi tried to make friends with Sonny even though he speaks to her with contempt.She tried to make amends with Chad by telling Abby to invite him to the wedding because she knew this would make Abby happy.Gabi loves Nick and only sees the best in him.Gabi also loves Will as a friend and wants the best for him which she believes is allowing Will to be in his baby's life while having a relationship with Sonny.Gabi did not do what Sami or Nicole did she told Will he was the baby's father as soon as she found out.I like Gabi and I like the fact that she will have Nick and Rafe standing up for her whatever comes next.I like the fact that Nick is not the dorky kid he was before,Prison is a harsh place and has had an effect on him which shows in how he dealt with Kate and will deal with anyone who comes after Gabi and the baby.I am looking forward to what comes next.
BTW the fact Will cannot be prosecuted for his crime does not mean that the behavior cannot be litigated in a custody hearing.Also in most,if not all,jurisdictions,the prosecutor can petition to have a minor tried as an adult.
