ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR IN AN ALL NEW EPISODE OF "SWITCHED
AT BIRTH," MONDAY, JUNE 13th AT 9:00 ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY
Burbank, CA (June 9, 2011) - The Kennish and Vasquez families struggle to adjust to life together as Kathryn and Regina differ over their parenting styles, and Bay and Daphne both begin to develop separate love interests that hit very close to home, on "Switched at Birth" on ABC Family, Monday, June 13 at 9:00PM ET/PT.
In "American Gothic," conflict looms between the polar opposite mothers when Kathryn questions Regina's parenting style. In addition, Regina, Daphne's mother, refuses to join the Kennish's in their efforts to sue the hospital that made the life-altering mistake of switching the girls at birth, leaving Kathryn to wonder, what is this stranger hiding? As the girls struggle to adjust to life together, Bay, begins seeing Ty, a boy from Daphne's old neighborhood, while Daphne goes on a date with Liam, totally unaware that he's Bay's ex-boyfriend. While Bay may have met the one guy who can keep up with her rebellious ways, Daphne, unfortunately, realizes dating a hearing person may be more difficult than she had anticipated.
