Another episode that ends with a hug!!! The show has got to stop doing that! It annoys me so much. LOL

Who wrote today's show? A lot of great dialouge and I especially loved the Will and Sonny scenes. WilSon wub.png

Pete Rich. I liked the W/S scenes too.

Thanks Toups! He did a good job. Those Will and Sonny scenes today could have easly came off as a big PSA, but they didn't and felt quite natural.

Funny you should mention a PSA because as I was watching, that's EXACTLY how it felt to me again. I also think this was perhaps the finest opportunity for Will to "free himself" so to speak. Sonny's words were more than encouraging but still couldn't break the ice with Will. He may be afraid but this storyline and Will's constant teary eyes are beginning to feel a bit annoying to me. I guess I'm going to have to suffer through a lot more of Will's theatrics before he finally "gets there."

Sonny's answer to how he knew he was gay resembled me a lot. I was shocked at how close it remembled it. It was a well written episode. But look like Will was going to cry again....lol. Sonny should have just planted a kiss on him. Will sure isn't hiding his secret very well. Sonny would have to be really stupid not to know he isnt gay.

Jen needs to STFU. Forbidding Abby from getting a modelling job? Really? Abby is what like 23 years oldish? WTF?!? She just told Abby to get the hell out of her house if she takes the job. Abby will be modellibng makeup. Jen is acting like she's about to go do porn

LOL. Well I actually kinda understood some of her points up until she kicked Abby out of the house. I don't believe Jenn would EVER do that to her own daughter. Then again, she's been perfectly fine with having JJ over in boarding school & never seeing him...so idk.

Those Will & Sonny scenes were perfectly written...I loved everything Sonny had to say. His comments about his birthday wishes during high school (wanting "gay Sonny" to go away), wanting to have a wife, 4 kids, white picket fence, etc...so well written & said. Those scenes were truly great & felt nothing like a PSA. Great job DAYS.

I was shocked when Sonny talking about how he was a bit of a loner in high school and when he'd go to parties with his friends it always felt there was a wall, because I felt very much like that in high school myself. I knew exactly what Sonny was describing.

LOL! No kidding. "You know how I feel about models! Look how stupid Hope turned out!"

I thought the Will/Sonny scenes were pitch-perfect. I'm pretty sure the point is that Sonny gets that Will is talking about himself, but he isn't forcing Will to say anything he isn't ready to say -- he's simply trying to be a friend and make him comfortable so that he becomes ready to admit it. It's rare that anything on this show is played this subtly, where two characters have a conversation for an entire episode without directly stating exactly what they're talking about. Both boys knew exactly what was really being discussed there.

The one weak point for me is that I have no idea what specifically Will is afraid of. Yes, I understand the "coming out is scary and the idea of losing your family and friends is terrifying" idea, but does Will really think Lucas or Sami would hate him for being gay? Is it Caroline and Roman he's worried about? Meanwhile, he's got one grandmother who's a cosmetics exec and former whore who runs around with a gay assistant and dresses like Captain Jack Sparrow, and the other grandmother is basically begging him to come out. I really wish they'd have Will articulate what it is that scares him, because all his friends have been so accepting of Sonny. (I would even buy that he's afraid to look stupid for having "pretended" to be straight, or that he's intimidated because Sonny is so confident in his sexuality and he isn't, or... any number of things. But at some point, I need Will to articulate that.)

The Sonny/Will scenes were really beautifully written -- but that doesn't surprise me. When it calls for it (Jack's therapy, Sami/EJ's anguish over Johnny) the show delivers some amazing writing lately. What they aren't knocking out of the park still is STORIES. It's getting better, since some stories seem to be happening now --- but they're all moving excruciatingly slow without any kind of suspense (this Madison secret should be hella suspenseful, right now it's just dumb) or they come out of left field (when the hell did Carrie/Austin near the brink of divorce? How is Jen anti-models now?). I need some genuine stuff to start pulling all of these threads together.

And yeah, the only thing stressing me out about Will is what he expects will happen. It'd be different if T were around and he was attracted to his best friend but fearful of coming out and ruining that. Or something. Right now it's the generic "I feel afraid of coming out" when no one in his family seems like they'd be anti-gay. Literally, EVERYONE in his biological family right now works in cosmetics or fashion!
