the sooner the better. As much as I do NOT want to see Kate raise this child, he certainly would be safer with her right now than with Chloe. I’m sort of hoping that when JKJ leaves the show, they decide to have him take Parker with him, or, preferably, that Parker really is Dan’s child and if or when Chloe is ever cured, Daniel files for permanent custody and wins. Chloe is too much of a whacko to be responsible enough to have a child. Her score for dealing with a crisis….. ANY crisis …… is zero. I really believe she would not care a crap about Parker anyway …… it’s all about losing Daniel.
I’m wondering why Phillip would leave and just had a thought. One of the spoilers is that Mel miscarries. That gets rid of the one tie he had to her. Something happens with Parker and it’s discovered that he’s really Daniels. Phillip does what he’s done in the past and runs away. Think when he graduated H.S. and had a disagreement with Victor about college, he joined the Marines. When it was discovered that Claire was Shawns baby and Belle was leaving him for Shawn he signed up for a dangerous mission which cost him his face. He already had an out with the artificial leg so it’s not like he was forced back into action, he volunteered.
