Switched at Birth Finale Preview: Secrets Spilled, Bombshells Dropped… Relationships Ended?

Get More: Finales, Previews, Scoop

Switched at BirthDid you think Emmett cheating on Bay with Simone was the only secret set to explode on Tuesday’s spring finale of Switched at Birth (ABC Family, 8/7c)? Guess again! The prom-set episode is full of shocking twists, and everybody’s hiding something. Below, TVLine breaks down the biggest questions heading into the episode with a little help from executive producer Lizzy Weiss.

WILL BAY LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT EMMETT AND SIMONE? | Short answer: Yes, and how! “Obviously, it has a huge impact when Bay discovers it, which she will in the finale,” previews Weiss, adding that “all couples go through challenges, but… it’s not a good thing what he did [with Simone].” The pair have been through no shortage of obstacles this season – communication issues, his parents’ divorce, Ty – but Wiess maintains that “there is hope for them.” It just won’t be any easy road. “A lot of fans think Bay and Emmett have true love, and sometimes true love goes through challenges,” she continues. “Maybe they don’t have true love? We’ll have to put them through more challenges and see what happens.”

ARE WILKE AND DAPHNE MEANT TO LAST? | While the the twosome remain casual and playful, “Daphne has grown increasingly more and more serious about Wilke,” says Weiss. But they’re about to be thrown for a loop. “Wilke has a surprise, as well, that’s going to be revealed” in Tuesday’s episode.

WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ANGELO? | Get ready for another shocker… Bay’s biological pops is back, and his return brings “a big twist story point…in our final scene that I think the fans will be surprised by,” teases Weiss. The reveal will have huge “ramifications” when the show returns in the fall. Speaking of the new season, prepare for a time jump as the story will pick up with the new school year. “The Kennishes and the Vasquezes will have had a whole summer away that we will have not been part of,” reveals the EP. “Things have happened over the summer.” Like what exactly? For one, “we’ll deal with the Bay and Emmett fallout,” she says.

ARE KATHRYN AND JOHN ON THE BRINK OF DIVORCE? | Could all the fights, suspicions of adultery, and Kathryn flirting with their lawyer put a dent in the what appeared to be a rock-solid marriage? “There are developments with the Kennish marriage,” is all Weiss will say.

  • I was really disappointed that they had Emmett cheat on Bay. I don’t even think I can hope that they’ll make it through this.

  • I must say, I am so confused with the season order. Is tonight’s episode the last for Season 1, or the last before a hiatus?
    This interview indicates that it’s the Season 1 finale and it will be back in September, but I thought this season was extended by 10 more episodes to 32 in total and wouldn’t be ending until June…

  • Okay – can someone please reassure me that Wilke will be back for Season 2? I love him with Daphne too much to see him go for good.

    • Well most likely not if Austin Butler’s pilot (the Carrie Diaries) is picked up by the CW (and I think there’s a big chance it will)…

    • Everyone said it returns in the fall, but i read an interview that said it will return on June 10 2012 and air ten more episodes, untill August 8 2012. Then there will be reruns of the whole first season.

  • I love Emmett! He is so cute! Him and Bay are so good together! I hate that they ended it with them fighting! I don’t know if I’ll make it till next fall to see what happens next! This show is very inspiring, considering I have been deaf since June 6 2010, exactly one year before the show aired, isn’t that weird. I have the exact same birthday as Bay and Daphne! I was meant to watch this show!

      • They did show the birthday of Bay and Daphne. Its October 22..they showed it when Bay found her birth certificate in Emmetts garage.

  • I wish Emmett hadn’t cheated on Bay because now I keep wondering what it will be like after they let out another episode. Will Bay be super mad? Will Emmett apologize? Will they break up?? I cant think of anything else. :(

    • They won’t break up … for good anyway. Bay will miss him too much and forgive him. It will make them even closer in the long run. Simone’s heart was changing a bit, so maybe she’ll tell Bay that she came on strong to Emmett when she knew he was weak. It will soften Simone, but the new, nice Simone will NOT be believable, so she will annoy me. But I could be wrong!
