Switched at Birth Review: Getting To Know You
C'mon guys, planking is so five minutes ago! Nevertheless, I love when Emmett and Bay do artsy, creative projects together. However, that might have been the only pleasant thing that happened during "The Tempest."
Heretofore, we've seen a lot of the struggles for a deaf person to acclimate to a hearing situation, but tonight we got the reverse. Bay tried so hard with Melody and Melody didn't give her an inch to work with. I understand being protective of your child, but for once I actually felt bad for Bay.
Can you imagine accidentally speaking to your boyfriend's mother about circumcision? Talk about an awkward meet the parents moment! Even Regina, who is best friends with Melody, agreed that Bay deserved an apology. The poor girl was completely embarrassed.
Another person who was embarrassed and definitely hurt was Wilkie. I could see the chemistry between him and Daphne and I think Daphne is denying it to herself. She may love Emmett because it's what she's known her whole life, but I don't believe that she has no feelings for Wilkie.
However, his comment about Daphne's type being "deaf and into Bay" was way harsh. Bitterness isn't a good look on anyone. Daphne is just trying to figure things out for herself, like any other teenager.
Her new friend Simone might not be the best influence, but I think she made the right move with the basketball team. If it's something she's passionate about, why shouldn't she pursue the best options possible? I would say the same to Kathryn. I think she should pursue the book. Letting someone else tell their story would be a mistake.
Nobody's night took a worse turn than Emmett's did. What could he possibly be getting arrested for? I guess we'll have to wait for next week as we all know how much ABC Family loves its little cliffhangers!
