I’m sure we all had our suspicions that Daphne would go back to Carlton’s basketball team, right?
Yep, during Switched at Birth’s latest episode, The Art of Painting, Daphne made the switch and returned to her original team. I wouldn’t say Daphne was a traitor by any means. Instead, I think she was simply exploring other opportunities.
For me, it’s much like test-driving a car – you want to know what the commitment involves. Although Daphne’s test drive with the Buckner basketball team went a bit further than most test drives, she did eventually return to where she was most comfortable – the Carlton basketball team.
I think at this point in any teenager’s life, it’s about fitting in –it’s about being socially accepted and knowing who you are. If you’re unsure, life may become more difficult. This is why I feel bad for Emmett. Instead of facing the issues head-on, Emmett resorts to drinking.
Nonetheless, I’m happy Bay talked with Melody, and Melody, in turn, confronted Emmett’s father about his nonchalant behavior and how this is negatively impacting Emmett.
So, at the moment, I must say I’m on team Melody and Bay!
How about the rest of you?
