‘Switched at Birth’ season 5, episode 5 preview: A powerful story in ‘Occupy Truth’

SwitchedEven though “Switched at Birth” is in the midst of a shortened final season, one of the things that it is still doing at the moment is continuing to give you some more ambitious, complicated event-stories. Next week in particular in “Occupy Truth” is a fine example of that you. You are going to see students with the Black Student Union make a stand, and have university officials listen to them in a way that they have not yet. They’ve got a clear reason to fight for this cause, but there is no guarantee at present of results.

For the time being, let’s go ahead and offer up some more details below.

Synopsis – “With tensions running at an all-time high, the Black Student Union takes a stand against the university administration until their demands are heard. Told in three chapters from the varying perspectives of Sharee, Iris and Chris, the students deal with their frustrations in different ways. Iris (guest star Sharon Pierre-Louis, “The Lying Game”) pledges to continue her hunger strike until the students responsible for a racist display outside the Black Student Union are expelled, but her commitment has consequences on her health. Sharee (guest star Bianca Bethune, “Bad Boys II”) faces the pain of her own past as she tries to gather signatures and rally more students to get involved. Chris (guest star Sam Adegoke, upcoming “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland”) is torn between wanting to dazzle several baseball scouts at an upcoming game and standing with his fellow students to show solidarity.”

Will this episode prove itself to be incredibly emotional? We imagine so, just as we are also curious to see exactly how many of the main characters factor into this show given the fact that none of them are really mentioned in this preview at all. The story may not be told from their perspective, but we do figure that there will still be some opportunities to see them featured in one way or another.
