The Murder of Emmett Till
Remember, the television vulture is watching your shows. Are you? Their lives are turned upside after Bay discovers that, as babies, they were sent home from the hospital with the wrong families. A family drama, Switched at Birth explores early adulthood, blended families, and deaf culture. It also includes scenes shot entirely in American Sign Language.

Although they are still close, she hasn’t been as close to him since. I keep wondering if Emmett and Daphne will become as close again, or if that relationship has been forever altered. I suppose it is just part of growing up. We all move away, at least somewhat, from our childhood friends. I wish we could have seen the scenes where Daphne and Emmett talked about his mistake with Simone.

Leclerc, who is hard of hearing, can speak and is fluent in American Sign Language. Sean Berdy, a deaf actor, plays Emmett, Daphne’s best.
In August , a year-old black boy whistled at a white woman in a grocery store in Money, Mississippi. Emmett Till, a teen from Chicago, didn’t understand that he had broken the unwritten laws of the Jim Crow South until three days later, when two white men dragged him from his bed in the dead of night, beat him brutally and then shot him in the head. Although his killers were arrested and charged with murder, they were both acquitted quickly by an all-white, all-male jury.
Shortly afterwards, the defendants sold their story, including a detailed account of how they murdered Till, to a journalist. The murder and the trial horrified the nation and the world. Till’s death was a spark that helped mobilize the Civil Rights movement. Three months after his body was pulled from the Tallahatchie River, the Montgomery bus boycott began. Luckett, Jr. William Bicket. State Sen. Gerald Chatham Ben Hampton Mrs. Fannie Ware Mrs.
Bay sets out to find out the real story behind Emmett’s girlfriend. Daphne questions her ability to volunteer at the clinic when she runs into someone from her past. Feeling guilty about her actions, Regina takes a chance at work. Meanwhile, Kathryn is shocked to discover that her book has been leaked ahead of publication. Looking at the last eleven episodes a lot has happened.
Obviously, Emmett was in love with her for eight years prior to the start of this show, and in typical high school girl form, Daphne was either.
Before the spring break, Bay Kennish had just found out a secret that broke her heart, that her boyfriend Emmett had cheated on her. For fans rooting for the star-crossed couple, it was heart-wrenching. What do you think that Emmett could do to speed that along and earn her forgiveness? That poor boy does about everything from romantic gestures to just being completely without anyone else to just constantly reminding her that he is waiting for her and he will wait for as long as it takes for her to move on.
It might be time to find a new love interest for Bay, especially with everything that happened, mix things up a bit. What do you think of that? Like the ultimate test of forgiveness is I can still have you in my life; maybe not in the same way but in a way that still shows friendship.
Ellen Gray: Berdy of ‘Switched …’ isn’t the silent type
Switched at Birth is an American television drama series centering on Bay Kennish and Daphne Vasquez, who at the age of 15 learn that they were switched at birth. The wealthy Kennish family must struggle with the fact that their biological daughter is deaf from having meningitis as a child and must accept the character of working-class, recovering alcoholic Regina Vasquez, Daphne’s single “mother”.
Bay and Daphne attempt to find out how their lives would have been if they hadn’t been switched. The one-hour-long series premiered on June 6, Daphne lost her hearing at a young age due to a bad case of meningitis. It is mentioned in the episode “Portrait of My Father” that Daphne’s father abandoned her and Regina when she was little.
He is very protective of Daphne and has had a long-time crush on her, but After getting to know him a bit better as he and Bay are dating they begin to like him.
Switched at Birth returned from its long midseason hiatus this week and jumped right into the relationship drama. Bay and Emmett hit a bit of a rough patch in the midseason premiere. Not only is there a fairly significant communication barrier between this couple, but Daphne has also been hit by the jealousy bug and seems rather determined to claim Emmett for herself.
Melody is going to put up some roadblocks as well. They do have a bond that Bay and Emmett will never have, which is true. Whether or not that needs to be love remains to be seen. We take time with that relationship. I made a point to ask Lizzy about the mother-daughter relationships, especially since it seems like Kathryn has made more of an effort to reach out to Daphne than Regina has with Bay.
This season, both Regina and Bay mutually make more of an effort to get to know each other. I know this sounds stupid, but I hope John cheats on Kathryn… He’s famous and it just seems like it would add a new kind of drama to the show..
“Switched At Birth” Falls On Deaf Ears
Written by Erin Tatum. The narrative follows two teenage girls, Bay Kennish Vanessa Marano and Daphne Vasquez Katie Leclerc after they discover that a hospital mixup led to them being switched at birth and deal with the fusion of their two families. Daphne also happens to be deaf as a result of early childhood meningitis. That level of representation for disabled actors continues to be virtually nonexistent, not to mention fleshing them out as actual characters instead of forcing them to be background token minorities.
In spite of all the progressivism, arguably the main appeal of the show for most viewers annoys the hell out of me: the relationship between Bay and Emmett. Of course, this desire is portrayed as stubborn and naively foolish.
You started talking about the relationship between Bay and Emmett and that’s maybe Daphne was very easy to get along with. my character started dating Emmett, and if you are going to start a relationship with somebody.
Switched at Birth is a show about two teenage girls who find out that the hospital… switched them at birth! Maybe you did, you smarty. Bay Kennish grew up in a very wealthy family, goes to private school, and loves art. On the other side of town, Daphne Vasquez grew up in a working class area with a single mother, and as a result of catching meningitis at age 3, is deaf. Daphne knows Emmett from their school, Carlton which is a school for the Deaf.
Yes, the shock! The love life of a BOY! They expect their audience to read! So maybe it requires more effort to watch or just a different type of effort but the point is that you should check it out. And I mean literally everyone. You just want her on your team. Obviously, Emmett was in love with her for eight years prior to the start of this show, and in typical high school girl form, Daphne was either oblivious or pretending to be oblivious.
And then, Bay and Emmett start seeming like they might have something, and Daphne gets capital-J Jealous.

What if Wilke and Daphne had gone all the way in her old neighborhood? Bay and Daphne just found out that they were switched at birth, and their lives are changing. When they’re finally starting to get along and becoming family, Bay is forced to make a hard decision. And what about Tank, who Bay is still dating?
Switched at Birth concluded its five-season run on Tuesday in much the same way it started: with a strong sense of family as the Kennish-Vasquez clan laid on their front lawn together, gazing up at a rare comet. Still, Bay and Travis reaffirmed their commitment to each other as a long-distance couple, while Daphne and Mingo reunited. Below, Weiss talks about her vision for the series ender, the storylines that got cut and the possibility of a reunion. There were general decisions that were made, like that Bay and Travis stay together.
But a lot of it we decided in the moment after many, many weeks of throwing things around. There were decisions we may have taken more time with. I always wanted to have Toby give up music and choose to move into a career with disability. That probably would have been over the course of the next ten episodes. Speaking of Toby, we wanted to explore that family becoming Jewish, and the Kennishes throwing a Passover seder and how fun that would be.
Like with Regina, we always knew that Eric was the guy, and that Luca was for now. And I actually like how it turned out. We did it really quickly. It felt urgent; it felt exciting.
