Langford on Soaps at AfterElton.com gave some plot points on upcoming issues with Will’s coming out.
Deidre Hall, who plays Marlena, tells Soap Opera Digest that Will coming out to his grandmother is just the beginning of months of dramatic story.
“Will and Marlena continue to have scenes that are fascinating,” said Hall. “Their relationship deepens and becomes richer by the day. There is so much coming up. It’s the most spectacular three months I’ve seen in ages. Life goes on after Will’s revelation.”
After all, Will still has to come out to his family and friends. While most of them, such as Will’s father Lucas, are going to take the news okay and be nothing but supportive, his mother Sami is not ready to march in the Salem Pride Parade with her son. At first Sami flees from the room when Will tells her, unable to deal with what’s she’s hearing. And when it does sink in, Sami blames herself and wonders what she did to make Will turn out gay. And Sami being Sami will want to ‘fix’ things. Uh-oh! And there’s talk that Sami won’t be the only family member not happy with Will’s sexual orientation.
