i think there is a twist, anyway this child should have been Brady's.. and yep these writers suck but this 'evolution' is not the worstof their 'brilliant writing', this 'miracle baby' plot point was ridiculous since the beginning, Nicole should have adopted with Brady.
ITA the dialogue has proven the baby was and should be Brady's. The writer's need to "FIX THIS" and I find this "miracle baby" redux a bit over the top. Granted not denying that Nicole shouldn't have a child, her and Brady could always try via surrogate or adoption. There are other ways. DAYS jumps the shark to the point the fans are just like enough.
