Yeah, I completely agree. I will continue to hold out hope that a falsified paternity test will not be in this storyline's future, or, at the very least, that such a plan will not work for even one day, because let's face it -- that would be completely ridiculous, and I don't want that for what is, as far as I'm concerned, the best storyline on the show right now.

The whole "switch the paternity test" would be hands down the dumbest move ever in this story. Someone commented before, everyone in Salem knows that Nick has a history of tampering with tests. Not to mention, just about everyone involved in this story line are intimately familiar with that trick. I think "paternity test all stars" was the phrase used. Everyone's brains would have to fall out of their heads for ANYONE to buy it. It would dumb down the story severely. There is enough inherent conflict in this story already to last for years. The writers don't need to resort to such a stale staple.
And aren't we forgetting that Nick's prison past is about to come and haunt him in the next few weeks. Spoilers say it will send him spiriling out of control. I think (and hope) that this whole paternity test discussion is a red herring for fans and they'll end up taking the story in an entirely different direction. And it seems to me they are sewing the seeds of people in Nick's life noticing that his behavior is not normal. Even people that care about him. Personally, I think the story is leading to Nick having a psychotic breakdown before the end of this.
Oh, and no -- I, for one, haven't forgotten about the fact that Nick's past is about to come back to haunt him. In fact, I've been looking forward to it, because I can't wait for Nick's downfall to commence and for someone to wipe that smug look off of his homophobic face. I don't have a single ounce of sympathy for Nick, and I intend to relish every moment of his well-deserved comeuppance.
