I don't think the intent was always to make Parker Daniel's son. Sydney is still Sami's child and still named Sydney, even though Nicole named her. And there are lots of other children on this show either named by someone else who turned out not to be the parent or who are named after their mom's boyfriend at the time. The show very deliberately hired babies that had deep dimples, just like JKJ's. I also think Higley made it pretty clear that she preferred Philip and Chloe together - she broke up the quad and shipped out Shelle and had Phloe reuniting when she took over - until Ed Scott stepped in. Then when she got control of the show back again, she again had Phloe working their way back to one another. And had Jay not left, I think that's the direction she would have continued to go (since right before he left, she basically had Philip and Chloe dating).
But what is completely impossible for me to believe is that neither Kate nor Victor (or Philip, for that matter) tested Parker again. It is so out of character for either of his parents to just accept that Parker is Philip's, given the deep hatred both of them have for Chloe.
I feel like the whole show right now is one big FU to Higley and MarDar and their stories. Ejole's baby - killed. MarDar's characters like Madison? Killed off. And they're back pimping the characters they wrote and loved - Daniel and Rafe (and everything would be worse if Melanie was still on the show).
So I consider it them changing history. I consider it them retconning the paternity of this baby. And just like I'm sick of Nicole's kids dying and her never being allowed to be a mother, I'm even more sick of Philip losing every single one of his children to another man. And in this case, it's just in a pathetic attempt to give one of the worst couples Days has ever had some sort of obstacle/storyline.
