Switched at Birth Review: Not Quite A Honeymoon

at . Comments

At the end of last week's Switched at Birth, we saw Regina make a risky decision in order to keep Angelo in Bay's life. Of course, by "risky decision" I mean shot gun wedding, so you can only imagine everyone's reactions in "The Intruder."

Hey, at least Bay is happy, right? Well... not completely because she's been nicknamed "Angry Girl" by another street artist, but that will always be Bay.

Sharing the Big News

It seemed like everyone was harboring a lot of pent up anger this week. First, Toby lunging at Emmett was long overdue. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying that even though Toby is so soft spoken there was no way he wasn't feeling major resentment toward Emmett and Simone over the affair.

I know you're all going to think I'm totally bipolar since I hate on Simone so much, but I have turned a corner and am feeling bad for her. She's a teenager and she made a mistake as several readers have pointed out. Think about all the mistakes you made as a teenager... and even after that! I think Emmett and Simone are both remorseful. Even if Toby is still angry about it, he's a stand up guy and neither he nor Bay would participate in a "slut" slamming website.

What was up with Regina seeing Simone at the AA meeting? 

As for everyone else, Emmett is crazy to think that Daphne is perfect and nothing upsets her. Daphne is really strong, but that doesn't mean she's made of steel. I'm glad Chef Jeff was nice to her when she had a mini-breakdown. We're only human and do the best we can. That romance is not a bright idea, but I'm looking forward to seeing what happens!

Angelo's move into the Kennish home is enough to shake up everyone's lives, even the people who are the least invested in the storyline. I'm wondering if Grandma Adrianna is right and this is secretly what Regina has wanted all along. Personally, I think she's onto something. It's been almost two decades with these two; the feelings are still there whether they are dormant or not.

More romance and drama are set to come in the upcoming weeks. What did you all think of the latest Switched at Birth?

I don't feel bad for Simone with the exception of the website thing. I loathe the Kennishes regularly with their holier than thou attitude and judgment. I have yet to see why Angelo is treated with such disdain. The only ones who should take issue with him are Daphne and her grandmother but everyone else...too much. I feel like we're being told that ar shouldn't like this guy and the Angelo of present hasn't given me reason to dislike him. I don't even hold against him that he bailed on Daphne in the past because even though it wasn't honorable it was understandable. I don't like the direction of the chef storyline but so far I like him it was great to see that deaf jerk of a guy still working at the car wash. I like the kid.


I feel sorry for Simone too,I hope Toby can forgive her,and eventually get back together with her,and eventually become friends with Bay and Daphne!


Lisa I really agree with you!!


I liked this episode because it involved everyone in the household, it's been a while since we've heard the opinions of Adrianna since she called immigration on Angelo and I feel she's the wisest person in the house. I'm getting kind of fed up of the whole Bay/Emmett thing. The entire second half of this season revolved around their relationship. I want to know what happens to everyone else now.


I have decided that I truly feel sorry for Daphne. She seems to be the "second choice" for both mothers. Regina is giving up her happiness for Bay even though Angelo was a jerk to Daphne.... that is just wrong. Daphne's birth mother still favors Bay over Daphne because of the deafness. This show seems to focus more on Bay and her issues. I am so looking forward to Daphne's romance with her chef and hope it takes a main storyline.
