Do you want “Switched at Birth” to really confuse you? Well, the upcoming Christmas episode for the show should do that and then some. Technically, this installment is being billed as the final installment of season 3, even if it is actually really close to the start of season 4.
One thing that you should also be are of going into this installment is that it doesn’t quite look like it will deal that much with the events in the finale this past summer. Instead, think of this as more of a fun one-off that presents an interesting “one-off” that ponders what would have happened if Bay and Daphne never were switched at all. Just to make things even more interesting, the actors will get a chance to swap things out, as well.
Take a look at the official synopsis for this episode right now below:
“As the holidays approach, Bay bristles at Kathryn’s festive holiday spirit, complete with homemade peanut brittle and Christmas karaoke, while Daphne is frustrated with Regina’s usual tradition of movies and Chinese food for Christmas. Then, after a joint family dinner including “magical” garlic knots, they wake to discover that the switch never happened. In this alternate life, Bay (Katie Leclerc) is an Olympic hopeful and Daphne (Vanessa Marano) is a successful artist with an upcoming exhibit. Is it the Christmas miracle they’ve always wanted? Could they even get back if they tried?”
The promo below for this episode may not be the most revealing in the world, but it does still do a very good job of revealing a little bit of what is going to be in store for this episode. If you love the characters on this show, we feel like you are bound to enjoy it.
