For years, he wished that he could stop being gay. Will wonders what he was afraid of the most. Sonny feared that he could never have his own family.

You're A Whore Mom.

He reminds her that she went through this herself. Sami cries and insists that this is nothing like what Marlena did. Will says it's worse. "What you and EJ did was disgusting," he says.
