Burbank, CA (July 11, 2011) - Bay thinks she has found her birth father, and asks Daphne if she wants to accompany her to meet him. If it's true, will he be able to answer all their questions? An all-new episode of "Switched at Birth" airs on ABC Family, Monday, July 18 at 9:00PM ET/PT.
In "The Stag Hunt," Bay searches the internet and thinks she has found her birth father, Angelo, and asks Emmett -- who has been helping Bay try to find him -- and Daphne to go with her to meet him. When Daphne finds out that Bay and Emmett have been getting together to track down her birth father, she grows increasingly upset and maybe a little jealous that they kept this a secret. Even though she's angry with them, Daphne chooses to go in hopes of confronting the man who once abandoned her, but is this the right Angelo Sorrento? Meanwhile, John and Kathyrn try to find out why the hospital board has rescinded the settlement offer - which they learn may have something to do with Regina. But what could she be hiding?
"Switched at Birth" is executive-produced by Lizzy Weiss ("Blue Crush"), Paul Stupin ("Make It or Break It") and John Ziffren ("Melissa & Joey," "Make It or Break It"). The series also stars newcomer Katie Leclerc as Daphne Vasquez; Vanessa Marano ("Gilmore Girls") as Bay Kennish; Constance Marie ("George Lopez") as Regina Vasquez; D.W. Moffett ("Friday Night Lights") as John Kennish; Lea Thompson ("Back to the Future," "Caroline in the City") as Kathryn Kennish; Lucas Grabeel ("High School Musical") as Toby Kennish; and newcomer Sean Berdy as Emmett.
