Can you believe that we’re already not too far away from the Switched at Birth series finale? We’ve made it to the halfway milestone, and we certainly know that moving forward, there are going to be some exciting, interesting things to come. However, “exciting” doesn’t always mean good for the characters, as you can also still expect to see quite a few more struggles before we get around to the end of the road.
Next week, “Four Ages in Life” is going to be a very difficult one for Daphne in particular as she has to wonder whether or not a former mentor is doing things the right way at all when it comes to his patients. She has to find her voice in a difficult spot and then act on it … while also making sure that she has a voice with Mingo at the same time to avoid the incident that happened at the start of the season.
Synopsis – “Daphne takes a volunteer job at a clinic for extra credit and comes face-to-face with her old mentor, Dr. Jackson (guest star Al White, “Grey’s Anatomy”). While eager to mend fences with him, she grows alarmed when it becomes obvious he’s having trouble properly treating his patients. Mingo (guest star Adam Hagenbuch, “Fuller House”) leads the annual “Kangaroo Krawl,” but Daphne sees his foolhardy behavior as a reaction to the regretful costume party incident. Bay finds Noelle (guest star Valery Ortiz, “Hit the Floor”) is plagiarizing her work and uses the discovery to negotiate her own chair. John and Kathryn make an effort to rekindle their romance. Regina is put in a precarious situation when she decides to expand her business.”
Ultimately, we do think that there are going to be some funny moments sprinkled in here, but things aren’t going to get better for anyone just yet. This is the sort of show that we do think will want to end on a happy ending, but it could take its time to get there.
