Switched at Birth Review: Can We All Just Move Forward?
This week's Switched at Birth was actually pretty slow. I don't know about all of you, but I'm kind of over the whole Bay/street artist storyline.
This week focused a little more on Bay drama than Daphne drama. She was fighting with her dad on his opinions about street art and almost got arrested. Then her last name got her out of any legal trouble. Her new tagging friend was not psyched about that, but rather pissed Bay had lied. Hating someone because of their last name? Sounds like a Dan Humphrey move to me.
Anyway, Daphne encouraged Bay to tell Emmett to move on or he would hold out hope. Naturally, since Bay is fairly selfish, she didn't do that. Instead, she went to Emmett and opened up to him about her fight with her father and asked for his advice. Regardless of the fact that I just called her selfish, I have to say that I do understand it.
You can be really angry with someone in your life or really hurt by something they did, but it doesn't always make you love them any less. It is what it is.
Toby, on the other hand, seems ready to move on from Simone, his music and reminders of his past. Katherine picked up on his change in mood and encouraged him to get into playing the guitar again. Despite Toby's initial resistance that led to him spilling his guts to his mother about Emmett and Simone, I think it was a step in the right direction. I'm also really happy they gave Toby some more screen time!
Also, I had no idea that Simone was so troubled with the alcohol. Regina is a good person. I actually loved what she said to Simone in the car.
Listen to me, you are not the worst thing you've ever done. You did something thoughtless, people suffered, you try to make amends and you move on. | permalink
It made me happy to see Angelo making strides with Daphne. It's about time he put some effort into getting to know both of his daughters and not just the one biologically related to him. Too bad it took a nail gun through the hand and a trip to the emergency room, but, hey, what matters is what happens is the result.
What did you all think of this week's episode? Will Bay and John work out their issues? Will Emmett and Robin hang out again? Hit the comments!
