‘Switched at Birth’ season 4, episode 3 preview: Bay’s past (and present) starts to haunt her

Switched at Birth -“I Lock the Door Upon Myself” is the title for the new episode of “Switched at Birth” airing on ABC Family next week, and there should be one question you find yourself asking almost right away: Did Bay lock the door on her own future by taking the fall for Daphne?

At the time that she first made the decision, we understand in many ways what she was doing. She wanted to be there to help make Daphne’s dreams come true, especially given how her desired profession would make it very hard for someone with a criminal record to be welcome. Unfortunately, she is starting to realize that the legal system is going to be a major roadblock to her prospects of having an art career. Take a look at the new synopsis below, which does at least suggest that there will be some moments of levity, as well:

“Bay gets an interview for a long-awaited submission with the Kansas City Artist Showcase to have her art be part of a public display but realizes her current status may prevent her from qualifying. When a dorm resident continues to prank the deaf students, Daphne challenges him to a dorm triathlon. Regina finds herself drawn to an East Riverside coffee house and its owner. A birthday milestone gets John thinking about the next chapter in his life.

“Meanwhile, Emmett makes a new friend at film school who gets him a gig on a real production.”

The promo below focuses on a story thread a little more specific: Emmett and Bay’s relationship. Can it really last thousands of miles?
