“Switched at Birth” is a show that never tends to shy away from controversy, which we do think for the most part is a great thing. It’s bold, it has a point of view, and we think that it allows its viewers sometimes to see outside of themselves in ways that they don’t often do. There are plenty of viewers, after all, who may not experience many of the situations that these characters do in their real lives, so they do not have that opportunities to see things from a different point of view or vantage point.
Now that we’ve laid all of that out there, let’s get to sharing some more details about what lies next for the series, shall we? After all, college racism is going to be a key subject of conversation tackled. This is not always something easy to address, but it is something going on out there in the world and there has to be a way to tackle it. Therefore, applause to the show for being brave, and not trying to hold anything back.
Synopsis – “Daphne and Sharee are horrified to stumble upon a racist display at the Black Student Union on campus. When the perpetrators are given minimal punishment, Iris starts a hunger strike in protest. Daphne receives an anonymous threat and Sharee grows frustrated with how the school is handling the situation.
“Emmett invites Bay to help him with an art project, causing friction with Travis who’s already upset that John seems ready to replace him on the baseball team.”
Obviously, and in true “Switched at Birth” fashion, there’s going to be so much more going on than just issues of racism on campus. This could be one of the more chaotic, eventful hours that we’ve had a chance to see, but that could lead to some key developments that move us closer to the end.
