    WILL HORTON (PAST)'S HISTORY

    Originally, Will was thought to be the son of Lucas' half-brother Austin Reed and Sami. The confusion over his paternity led to custody battles that lasted over a decade. Through all of this, he was often used as a pawn for Kate and Sami in their battles over control, a situation that often put Will in an uncomfortable position.

    As he grew up, he became aggressive at school, even hurting his cousin Abby on numerous occasions. He also became disrespectful and off-handed with his parents. Things got worse for him when both of his parents became suspects in the Salem Stalker case. While the stress of this seemed to bring his parents closer together and offered him hope of their reunion, it also made him suspect that his father had returned to his drinking habit. Amidst the chaos of Sami's love life, an embarrassed Will ran away from home when she jilted Austin at the altar. She and Lucas went on television pleading for his return, all the while believing that he has been abducted. He had only gone away for some time alone. He returned safely when he ran out of money to buy food.

    He moved in with his father and grandmother when Lucas was on one of his many breaks from Sami. Lucas came to befriend Sami again, for the sake of their son, before their relationship once again escalated.

    Will resided with his mother and father, who married, but when circumstances forced them apart, he moved to Switzerland to be with Uncle Austin and Aunt Carrie. He returned, February 2009, wanting his parents to get back together. By the time spring rolled around, Will understood it was not going to happen and was not happy when Lucas married Chloe. They butted heads and when Sami returned home from a stint in a safe house after finding Mayor Marino dead at the DiMera mansion, she had 'adopted' a baby - Grace. The child, unbeknownst to Sami, was switched at birth with Will's girlfriend, Mia's child, (who privately had a baby with Chad Peterson Woods before Will met her) and Sami brought her home. Mia came around to help Will babysit and bond with Grace. Soon, Grace contracted Meningitis and died and months later, Sami learned that Sydney was her child and Will's sister. Nicole, who had switched babies, kidnapped Sydney. This came as quite the shock and Will and Sami and the family bonded with Sydney once they got her back but that was short lived once EJ with Anna DiMera's help kidnapped Sydney and faked her death. This crushed Will and Rafe eventually learned the truth and EJ attempted to play the hero by bringing Sydney back to the family. Will moved into the DiMera mansion with Kate when he and Sami weren't getting along, when Sami and EJ started to bond over Sydney. Eventually Sami and Will mended fences and when Sami learned the truth about EJ kidnapping Sydney, she took the kids and left the mansion. Will witnessed Sami leaving the DiMera mansion soon after. She had shot EJ. Will kept her secret even as EJ badgered Will for the truth. Will never did reveal the truth. Since then, Will has been hanging out with Gabi Hernandez. They've started dating and have had sex, but Gabi can tell that something is going on in Will's head because he doesn't appear to want intimacy with her. Will has started helping Sonny with his idea for a new school website, while trying to defend Sonny's homosexuality to his friend Tad. Eventually, Will started to deal with his own homosexuality. EJ blackmailed him into working for him. EJ would keep his homosexuality from everyone along with the knowledge that it was him, not Lucas who shot him from the public. Will did this for a time and seemed to enjoy the power and perks that came along with it. He eventually came out and quit working for EJ and was focusing on school. He had sex with Gabi one night when she needed comfort and he was coming to terms with his sexuality. He started to date Sonny after finally being comfortable with who he is, though Lucas had issues with it. Eventually, Lucas came around and his family was proud of him. Will learned Gabi was pregnant and they discussed abortion but neither could go through with it. Nick Fallon entered the picture and wanted to marry Gabi and bring up her kid as his but Will wanted to remain the child's father. Nick blackmailed Will into giving up his rights but in the end, Gabi found out and Nick relented. Will, Gabi, and Sonny moved in together, thus making it easier for them all to care for the child. During that time Gabi and Nick were intimate and she finally got him out of her system and life - or so she thought. Nick started to put her name in at modelling agencies across the USA and got her a job at Sparkle Modelling Agency without her knowledge. She didn't take the job which made Nick go a little nutty and they argued publicly about it in the Horton Square. He followed her to the woods and she fell and he got on top of her and started kissing her against her wishes. She grabbed the nearest rock and hit him in the head. Sami showed up just then and both thought he was dead. When Kate arrived after having heard the argument in the square, the trio decided to get rid of the body and dumped him in the river. Nick was still alive and gasped. He tried to hold on to Sami but she shrugged him off. He went under and they've been covering it up. Of course it is Salem and a soap, so Sonny overheard them discussing it, then Will and Sami was forced to tell EJ.
