Quote CBSoapKing: Uh - before we give Paul too much love here folks, let's not forget he is as manipulative and selfish as Emily. He has STENBECK blood flowing in his veins and he is gradually following in his father's footsteps. Emily is his checkmate! (think about it)
You are right. Paul is his fathers son. However I think at this point Paul is trying to protect his child from Emily. He knows Emily is not playing with a full deck right now and his concern is for his child. Emily is using this baby as a pawn in her sick obsession with Paul. He may not be the picture perfect father type but he really is trying to put the needs of his child first. His concerns for his child are real.
