Before Switched at Birth returns this summer, catch up on the season with our exclusive refresher.
Summer TV Preview: Where we left off with returning shows
When the series picks back up, Bay (Vanessa Marano) faces the consequences of her hookup with Emmett (Sean Berdy). Will she break up with Tank and officially rekindle things with her ex? Daphne will also (Katie LeClerc) set out to find the person who vandalized her mom's design studio, which could put the whole family at risk.
Super Bowl champion Derrick Coleman will make a cameo on an upcoming episode of Switched at Birth, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Coleman, who is the first deaf offensive player in the NFL, will appear in the June 30th episode with Travis (Ryan Lane), who's also deaf, and Mary Beth (B.K. Cannon).This will mark Coleman's first TV cameo.
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'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.

Are Switched at Birth's Bay and Emmett back together?
Although Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Emmett (Sean Berdy) have had their ups and downs since Emmett cheated on her, the pair is finally getting close again. Bay has always had the upper hand in whether or not they'd reconcile, but on Monday's episode, Bay's surprised by her feelings when she learns that Emmett has started dating again.
Switched at Birth's Vanessa Marano: Bay's pent up emotions are going to erupt
"For so many seasons now, it's been Emmett trying to get forgiveness from her and trying to get back together and Bay being resistant," Marano previously told us. "She's realizing more that Emmett isn't going to be waiting for her for the rest of her life, and if she does want to get back together, she might need to make a move now because he's going to get tired of waiting."

Changes are ahead for Switched at Birth's Bay, who this season will deal with new schoolmates, a new art class, a new attitude and an unexpected ally.
Marching to the beat of her own drum since Season 1, Bay Kennish (Vanessa Marano) finally found her place after getting to know her birth parents Regina (Constance Marie) and Angelo (Gilles Marini), building a solid friendship with Daphne (Katie LeClerc) and leaving her privileged private school for Carlton School for the Deaf, which she fought to keep open. But when the third season premieres (Monday at 8/7c, ABC Family), Bay will feel somewhat lost again as she recovers from believing she was cheated on (a lie Blair Redford's Ty told her so she'd get over him while deployed in Afghanistan) and starts her senior year alongside some of Kansas City's toughest inner city kids.
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]."
