Paternity questions have been a part of DOOL as long as we can remember. And the trope has never been as popular as it has been with today’s writers, what with EJ not being Stefano’s son, Nicole pretending that she’s got Rafe’s baby instead of EJ’s, and Sami ranting about how Carrie must really have Rafe’s baby because ME ME ME ME!! And Daniel wants to bone Nicole badly enough that he’ll switch her paternity test results even after he experienced having a son that wasn’t his?
Anyway, here’s a look back at when they only attempted one Maury Povich storyline at any given time.
Like when Sami switched paternity results on Brandon, Abe and Lexie?
Or like that time Gina/Hope did it with John and Stefano…
And we got to decide who the baby daddy was. Except not really at all.
More recently of course, both Chloe and Daniel were duped by Caroline, who switched Chloe’s paternity results …
After she cheated on DanDan with Philip
Stephanie/Ian tried to pull it off via some digital sorcery, and boy was Nathan upset when that happened.
Isn’t it interesting to remember how much screen time these two got so recently, and they aren’t even on the show anymore?
There’s plenty more who’s-your-daddy storylines to highlight, so watch for this theme again!
