Switched at Birth: Summer “Homecoming” Season Finale

Just as Bay had given up hope of ever meeting her biological father, she receives the surprise of her life, while Daphne struggles with Emmett and Bay’s relationship, on the summer finale of “Switched at Birth” on ABC Family, premiering Monday, August 8 at 9:00PM ET/PT.

In “The Homecoming,” Bay’s biological father, Angelo (Gilles Marini), shows up at her school art show, causing Bay much stress. Not sure how to react, she decides she does not want anything to do with him, until the curiosity is too much to bear. After a brief encounter, Bay introduces Angelo to the Kennishes and Daphne, who has no memory of the man who walked out on her. Unable to figure out why he is here, Regina assures the Kennishes that leaving is Angelo’s specialty, and they will not have to worry about his presence for long. Although Regina is furious with Angelo, it becomes clear the two have a more complicated history than any have realized. Meanwhile, Daphne decides to tell Emmett how she feels about him, triggering a whole stream of emotions for Emmett who has always loved her. Although Emmett knows picking Daphne would be easier than dating Bay, he finds his choice harder to make than he ever expected.

ABC Family recently gave a back-season order of 22 episodes to the network’s one-hour original drama, “Switched at Birth,” giving the break-out series a full first season order. The series, which premiered this June with a 10-episode episode order, is scheduled to return in early 2012.
