I truly believe the Switched at Birth writers hate Bay. Honestly. They just keep giving her these sucky situations and she’s never allowed to just be happy. It’s so frustrating and it makes me not want to watch the show anymore.
This episode started with a high and then ended with a very low low. At the start of the episode Bay is excited about finally being off house arrest and is video chatting with Emmett to tell him so. But then Emmett surprises her with a visit and although it’s only for a couple days they promise to make it the best.
That’s short lived when Emmett starts talking about his great life in L.A. and his new found friendship with Skye. Bay begins to feel jealous and a little left behind since her life hasn’t changed at all. In an attempt to get on Emmett’s level, she takes him to see this fancy movie that she researched before. When Emmett calls her out on it she explains how she’s feeling and Emmett explains that he’s happy now. He shows some pictures of him in L.A. and up pops the one Skye took just before she kissed him. Oops.
Of course, Bay then asks if Skye likes Emmett. He tries to deny it but then admits that Skye did kiss him but he pulled away. Bay gets upset but then tries to play it cool like it’s not a big deal.
The next day they go to have a picnic in the park and everything hits the fan. Bay and Emmett end up having a huge fight. Bay is upset that Emmett didn’t tell her about the struggles he was going through. Emmett get’s mad that Bay is bothered by his friendship with Skye. He says she’s not allowed to be upset since it’s her fault that she’s not there with him. Seriously, Emmett? Really?
Bay tries to explain that she’s not even really mad about Skye, that it’s something else. Emmett says she’s just mad because he’s moved on and she hasn’t. Bay says that she’s still coming to L.A. as soon as her community service is done but Emmett doesn’t believe her. He says she changed the plan before, what’s to stop her from doing it again. Emmett then leaves, even though his flight doesn’t leave for another two hours.
Feeling upset and a little angry Bay decides to go to the party in Daphne’s dorm where she bumps into Tank. We don’t see these two again until the end of the episode where Bay wakes up naked, in bed with Tank, not remembering how she got there. Uh oh.
Meanwhile, Daphne is struggling with her chemistry class. Thinking she aced her midterm she actually ended up with a D due to a stupid mistake. Thinking about dropping the class, Regina visits Daphne’s professor and plays the “deaf card”. The professor isn’t having it and when Regina tells Daphne what she did Daphne is furious and they also have a huge fight.
Afterwards, Daphne visits her professor, prepared to drop the class when the professor stops her and explains why she did so bad. She lost 30 points on one section because of confusing too different chemistry terms that I don’t understand. The point is, the professor decided to give Daphne an extra credit assignment to help bring up her grade.
Excited, Daphne tells Josh (her interpreter, in case you forgot his name like I did) that she’s staying in the class. Josh tells her what we all already know, which is Regina is a boss mom and Daphne should be grateful. Realizing this, although she should’ve known already, Daphne apologizes to Regina and they make up and it’s happy ever after.
Until Daphne goes to the party and sees Josh who ends up leaving the party with another girl. Ouch. Sorry Daphne but you can’t get all the boys. Although let’s be honest, they’ll probably hook up before the end of this season.
- Toby got a little too comfortable and started saying no to jobs even though he’s broke, which led his parents to cut him off. Toby, although angry at first, quickly realized he needed to get his life together and decides to work with Kathryn on her musical.
- John and Melody get into a showdown over Travis. John wants Travis to play baseball but Melody wants Travis to focus on school. Travis, being 19, gets to make his own choices and chooses baseball, which I personally think is a great idea.
Stay tuned for next week when things are going to get really serious and probably heart breaking. Did Tank rape Bay? Or is it just a misunderstanding? What will happen with Bemmett? Check out the preview for next week’s episode below and comment what you think will happen next.
