Switched at Birth Exclusive Video: Who's Doing a Sexy Salsa in the Dance Episode?

With a cast that features a High School Musical alum and two Dancing with the Stars veterans, it was only a matter of time before Switched at Birth did a dance-themed episode.

On Monday's installment (8/7c, ABC Family), dance scenes fill every act as Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and Bay (Vanessa Marano) both wonder about their futures. From Lea Thompson's Broadway act and Gilles Marini and Marlee Matlin's Waltz to LeClerc's salsa dance with RJ Mitte and David Casteneda, almost every style is covered.

Switched at Birth Star: Daphne can find something to love in both Campbell and Jorge

"[My] dance is especially fun because of the love triangle," LeClerc recently told us. "I'm a pretty good dancer, I learn choreography pretty easily, and I took tap in college. But Vanessa Marano is the most adorable thing in the world -- she has no rhythm!"

Switched at Birth Star: Daphne Can Find Something to Love in Both Campbell and Jorge

Switched at Birth's Daphne is caught in a love triangle.

Despite how often Daphne (Katie LeClerc) is surrounded by boy drama, it seems that she may have found herself two pretty great guys. In last week's episode, Daphne's colleague at the clinic, Campbell (RJ Mitte), expressed his feelings for her and later broke up with his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Daphne and her boss Jorge (David Castaneda) shared a passionate kiss at the end of the episode, leaving her conflicted about who, if either, she should choose.

Keck's Exclusives First Look: CSI Goes Back to the Future

Though they costarred in 1989's Back to the Future Part II and 1990's Part III, Elisabeth Shue (who played Marty McFly's girlfriend, Jennifer) and Lea Thompson (who played Marty's mom, Lorraine) appeared together in only one scene. So it came as a rare treat for them to reunite for a November episode of Shue's CSI, in which Thompson guest stars as an investigator who is looking into a misconduct claim against Greg (Eric Szmanda). "We both had to sign a bunch of Back to the Future Part II posters for the crew," Thompson says. "A lot of people, including Eric, were totally geeking out."

Switched at Birth Season 2: Angelo's Millions, a New Bay, New Love for Daphne and More!

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.
