Switched At Birth -- Valentine Days Blues

Updated on February 21, 2013

Original Airing: February 11, 2013

It’s Valentine’s Day and love isn’t exactly in the air. Bay’s feeling mopey because she doesn’t have a boyfriend, so Angelo agrees to let her have a party at his place. Bay’s target for Cupid’s arrow is potential new boyfriend, Noah.

Angelo is having his own V-Day troubles. Lana wants him to sign the adoption papers and he’s stalling. He invites her to chaperone Bay’s party with him, hoping to get off the adoption kick, but Lana seems to have her mind pretty much set on it.

Nicky and Toby are back together. She even tells him she loves him. He later tells her he loves her, too. She gives him a bracelet for V-Day, but when she sees the way he keeps trying to hide it, since it’s a religious wrist band, she ends up ending things with him for good.

Daphne is suffering from PTSD after the attack she endured and the fact she’s keeping it quiet. She eventually tells Melody, who gets her to go to the police. When Regina comes down to the police station and doesn’t tell Kathryn and John about it, war breaks out between the two sets of parents. Things get worse when John sells Daphne’s food truck. When both Regina and Kathryn give him a hard time, he buys it back. It takes some words of wisdom from Audriana when Regina is going off on John and Kathryn that all Regina is doing is talking about herself, and not Daphne. Eventually both sets of parents seem to reach peace for the moment.

If anyone wondered where the kids at Carlton got their elitist attitude, we now know it comes right from hearing bigot Melody. I was just sitting there with my mouth hanging open as she was teaching her little elitist deaf class. Instead of trying to breed tolerance and understanding between deaf and hearing people, she’s telling these deaf kids they’re the Chosen Ones because they’re deaf and their lives are so much better because they can’t hear. And all the deaf kids said if they could take something to hear they wouldn’t because they are so much better than people who can hear, so why would they want to hear. This elitist bigot has no business teaching at that school.

It made me sick when Regina hugged her and thanked her for helping Daphne. But you can’t bet this bigot never offered up any apology for the way she treated Regina accusing her of faking a wrist injury so she wouldn’t have to do sign language. And she’s trying to turn her son into as big of an elitist bigot as she is. Since things were going a bit better for him with Bay he told Daphne she didn’t have to date Travis to prove she can date someone whose deaf.

Finally, war breaks out between Noah and Travis at Bay’s party. Noah is having trouble hearing and when Travis jacks up the music and asks like his regular jerk self, Noah starts making derogatory remarks about the deaf. They finally get into a fist fight that Angelo has to break-up. Afterwards, Bay finally gets Noah to kiss her.
