Gabi tries denying this but he sobs as he tells her he doesn't know who he is - he blackmailed Will in order to keep him from the baby. She figured as much but thought it was because of Sami. He tells it was because Will's gay and gets into the horrific things that happen in prison. He repressed what happened.
