I don't like Angelo, there were better ways he could have come back into their lives, like John and Kathryn pointed out. I'm not surprised to find out that he's hiding something, I called it two episodes ago. As for Regina, she needs to stop thinking with her lady-parts and start thinking about what's best for her and her daughters, which includes Bay. John, Kathyrn, and Toby have all be really accepting of Daphne but Regina's side has been extremely neglectful of Bay. Does Regina ever willing do anything with her? If it were up to her, the girls would never have known about the switch and at this point in their lives, its just not fair. Regina keeps throwing Angelo in Daphne's face when Daphne has clearly rejected the idea of him in her life. Regina should respect that, even if she doesn't agree with it.
That being said, I think Angelo has some financial dealings that might be shady. That hotel scene where he says his name is "Adam" on the credit card stuck out in my mind as strange. Also Regina's mom hates Angelo and she's pretty level headed, so I'm wondering what else happened that we don't know.Bay has done some things that weren't nice either but she's always the one coming to Daphne to apologize and make peace. Daphne is just angry all the time. Bay has been right on several counts about warning Daphne but she doesn't want to listen. She warned her about the poker, that goes awry but then Daphne is cool with Toby and Wilkie making fake IDs which can get them in soooo much more trouble than a suspension at school. She also tried to warn her about her father being pushy, Daphne took it as Bay trying to stop her from knowing him. Now Bay has warned her off of Simone, which clearly is turning out to be valid as well. Honestly, if I were Bay, I'd give up too.
Angelo left because he thought Regina was sleeping around on him and that she had knowingly forced him to raise another man's baby. Clearly that was the issue, not her being deaf, like Regina led Daphne to believe. He owed Daphne an apology but he never considered her his daughter, he always knew that she wasn't his and he couldn't shake that. Now he finds out that he has this daughter that was kept from him, so of course he wants to get to know her. She is his daughter. Its understandable why Daphne would be hurt but its mainly because she believes that he abandoned her because of her disability not because of the mistrust between Regina and Angelo.
Daphne is being a bit selfish though in this case. Bay didn't actually want her to break up with Liam, she was just venting. After all, how would you feel if you weren't even included on your own family photo? Instead she had been replaced, of course she lashed out at Daphne. Daphne has had PLENTY of time to get to know her birth parents meanwhile Regina is too busy worrying about Daphne that she has made little effort to bond with Bay.
I think that all the characters do things that we dont like, which is why I love this show. They are human. Sometimes we root for one character and other times we don't. I understand why Daphne would be so angry, but I see Bay's side too. She really likes Emmett but everyone saw him with Daphne. Everyone was shocked when they got together, calling him "Daphne's Emmett". The relationship between Daphne and Emmett was unhealthy on both sides. Like when Daphne get's in a jam she calls Emmett instead of dealing with it herself and Emmett never had to be friends with hearing people because he had Daphne when both hearing and deaf people shouldn't put those kinds of limitations on themselves. Because Bay is dating Emmett she actually has to take time to consider another person's feelings when often she can be insensitive.
Nevermind, I just read over my typos. yikes
I have to say, I really do find it funny with people that the show's name literally. It's clearly not meant that way. So often in society we see these women stand by their cheating, no-good husbands and often we wonder why. This is a show about that woman. She's the mother, she's the wife,the person that keeps everything together and often pays more dearly for her husband's mistakes than he does. This show is about letting us all know that these women are not weak but strong and also letting the wives know that its never too late to re-start that career. Anyways, with that off my chest, on to the questions!
Well, I think Chuck Lorre is taking both his prime time shows in bad directions. Two and a Half Men stinks, of all the replacements he could have chosen, he had to pick Aston Kutcher? Not only that but the writing has seriously gone down hill. The same goes for Big Bang Theory. The show feels tired. Sheldon's antics are becoming less and less amusing, Penny basically has no point anymore (which I think is a waste of talent in regards to Kaley Cocoa), Leonard is boring, and there's less nerdiness each week. I think this show has the potential to really be good again, but pandering to cheap humor is demeaning to it's audience. And I've already mentioned my issues with this week's episode, so I wont go there again.
*kids are committing suicide over bullying, not Big Bang. Just to clarify
Please forgive my numerous typos, I was in a hurry when I wrote it
