What if Regina had told the Kennishes that their daughters were switched the moment she found out? That's the question explored on Monday's Switched at Birth fantasy episode, airing 8/7 on ABC Family.
In the final minute of last week's episode, Regina (Constance Marie) and John (D.W. Moffett) were embroiled in an intense argument when John collapsed and suffered a heart attack. Monday's hour will play out as John's fantasy — or rather nightmare — of how everyone would've turned out if Daphne and Bay's switch had been revealed when the girls were just 3-years-old. Ironically, it seems, life could've been much worse if the secret was out.
For Switched at Birth's Regina Vasquez, readjusting to life after rehab will prove to be more than difficult.
"When Regina comes back, there's an adjustment period," Katie LeClerc tells TVGuide.com. "We're used to not being a cohesive family, but it's especially hard on [everyone]."
Returning summer shows: Where we left off
Fran Drescher and Harry Van Gorkum
"I can't stand him, but my subconscious is such a little ho!"
On Wednesday's Happily Divorced (10:30/9:30c, TV Land), Fran (Fran Drescher) is having difficulties keeping her mind on her fiancé Elliot (D.W. Moffett). Why? She's been having sex dreams about her next door neighbor Neil (Harry Van Gorkum)!
Switched at Birth
Season 2 of Switched at Birth can be summed up in two words for just about every character: New beginnings.
When Season 1 left off, Bay (Vanessa Marano) had finally come to her senses after breaking the rules (and the law), Daphne (Katie Leclerc) was left heartbroken by her first love, and the Kennish' trial came to an end naming them victors in the switched at birth case, but rewarding them just a dollar in compensation and Angelo (Gilles Marini) a whopping 5 million. As Season 2 picks up (Jan. 7 at 8/7c on ABC Family), every character will essentially be starting over, but some will struggle more than others.
Switched at Birth's Bay (Vanessa Marano) is getting a new BFF and she won't exactly be a family favorite.
Lost alum Tania Raymonde has been cast on the ABC Family series, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. She'll play a street artist named Zarra, who begins her arc in the second episode.
ABC Family orders more Bunheads, renews Switched
Sean Berdy, Vanessa Marano
Switched at Birth creator and executive producer Lizzy Weiss calls Bay and Emmett the modern day Romeo and Juliet.
When the ABC Family series left off, switched-at-birth teens Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie LeClerc) were in conflict after Emmett (Sean Berdy) chose to be with Bay over his best friend. But the new relationship has a lot more to overcome than feuding friends. Emmett as well as Daphne are both hearing impaired.
Gilles Marini has been cast on Switched at Birth, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. He'll join the ABC Family series as Bay's birth father, Angelo.
Switched at Birth follows Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc), teenagers from different walks of life who have learned they're living with the wrong family. Bay, who comes from a privileged background, is really the daughter of single mother Regina (Constance Marie) while Daphne, who is hearing-impaired, is actually the child of Kathryn (Lea Thompson) and John (D.W. Moffett).
Switched at Birth
Ever wish you could be in someone else's shoes? What if you really were ... or at least in someone else's family? That's the question that two girls must answer in ABC Family's new drama Switched at Birth.
ABC Family announces summer programming
We've got the first-look photo of the series, which tells the story of two girls who discover they accidentally ended up with the wrong family as newborns. Bay Kennish, played by Vanessa Marano, grew up in a wealthy well-rounded family. Daphne Vasquez, played by Katie Leclerc, lost her hearing at an early age and grew up in a working-class neighborhood with her single mother. After learning of the mistake, the two very different families must learn to live together for the sake of their girls. Constance Marie, D. W. Moffett, Lea Thompson and Lucas Grabeel also star.
