REALLY, new head writers Gary Tomlin and Christopher Whitesell? REALLY? Your first story for Will since taking over at Days, and you decide that having him bang GABI is the way to set the tone for your new regime? You’re going to walk back on all the progress the character has made and all the kudos the storyline received and all the respect the show has gotten from the gay community by suddenly making him, what? Bisexual now? Is it too MUCH for you to write for a gay character and have him, you know, BE GAY? As Soap Opera Confidential puts it: “Has gay soap opera storytelling really stayed on pause since flip-flopping Steven Carrington on Dynasty 30 years ago?” Even poor Chandler Massey (who plays Will) struggles to explain this travesty: “Will is battling self-esteem issues,” Massey offers. “So when you get two people who have some sort of romantic history in a room together, and both are feeling insecure about themselves, they seek any comfort they can find.” Which is twaddle. Pure twaddle. Gay men don’t suddenly get an urge for snatch when they are feeling down in the dumps. Says SOC: “I don’t see clearly established heterosexual Bo (Peter Reckell) deciding to go snog Abe’s (James Reynolds) log when he’s feeling a bit blue. So why is it that gay soap characters always want some hetero lovin’ when they break a nail?” YUCK! YUCK! YUCK! This is the worst idea since Austin and Greta were trapped in the virtual Garden of Eden! If they want to shake things up they should have Will and EJ fall into bed. But this. THIS. This is unacceptable. Gary Tomlin and Chris Whitesell, you dishonor the gay community. A pox on you both.
