Daphne still misses Angelo. He had been taken from her so abruptly that it had been hard for her to come to terms with his death however a young woman named Ally was offering Daphne a chance to still have some part of him in her life. But was Ally for real? Ally claimed that she had received Angelo’s heart and that was after all a possibility. So Daphne had wanted to get to her and see if she was like Angelo in any way – just it was strange that Daphne ran into her at the student clinic and it hadn’t looked like a coincidence. Ally had gone out of her way to get to know Daphne and she had wanted to be introduced to Daphne’s family members like Bay. However, Bay had gotten a little too swept in by Ally. She had liked her and had wanted to help the young woman cover up her scar from her heart transplant with a tattoo yet it was odd that Ally had wanted to meet more people and that she claimed she had woken up with cravings after her surgery. She said that she suddenly began liking red wine and salsa dancing. So that had reminded the girls of Angelo because he had loved those things too. Yet, Angelo was gone and holding onto him by trying to fit Ally into their lives wasn’t something that everyone in the family had approved of. Daphne had tried to talk about Angelo to Regina because she had wondered if her mother would like to meet Ally and it doesn’t seem like Regina wants to remember that time from her life. She had told Daphne that it had been a hard decision to donate Angelo’s organs and she hadn’t wanted to think about it again though that Regina’s answer hadn’t been what Daphne was looking for.

Switched at Birth Review: The Next Healthy Step

As we wind down to the final few episodes of Switched at Birth, we hope that Bay and Daphne’s stories can come full circle to indicate where these two young women will take the next chapter of their adult lives. It seems that they have finally decided on career paths which make them both happy, but there is still some uncertainty going forward. It only seems appropriate that one final piece of the puzzle brings their journey full circle. By the end of the episode, that’s exactly what Daphne is made aware of. Bay is outraged that Noelle has been stealing her designs, for which she is unapologetic. In Noelle’s mind her actions are justified because she was stressed, and Bay is not ready for her own chair. She decides to give Bay what she wants just to prove it. It’s not enough that Bay is feeling the pressure from trying to lure in clients, she doesn’t need her parents dropping in and scaring them away. When a client comes in with a questionable ID and a ton of cash, Bay feels it’s too good a risk not to take to keep her spot in the studio. Bay is completely ignorant that the tattoo she is asked to draw is a local gang sign, and has to do major damage control so that the kid’s dad doesn’t press charges. The whole experience opens Noelle and Bay up to a new understanding. READ MORE...
