I belong to another TV forum where only the moderators are allowed to start threads. If this is the case here, then I am sorry.
Since Switched at Birth is currently on hiatus until the Summer, I thought that people might be interested in a thread where they could give their opinions as to what will happen in Season 4B. Since I am a male, I'm not interested in any of the relationships that are or have happened. To me, that is the small picture, while the large picture hides just around the corner. Too many people see this show as a romantic comedy where everyone will have a happy ending. With the breakup of Bay and Emmett, which will probably be permanent, this will no longer be the case. I may be very negative but I don't see too many happy endings. YES - The musical that Kathryn and Toby are making will probably be a hit. Emmett's movie will probably be a huge success - but there won't be many more happy endings.
This show amazes me in that it could very well be the first show that I have ever seen where the 2 main characters face the very real possibility of a bleak future.
Bay Kennish is now, and forever will be known, as a convicted felon. Unless she works for her parents, her job prospects appear to be pretty slim. Tess was only able to get a job as a telemarketer. The NEA won't show any of a felon's art works. Her plans of going to LA are now over. She will no longer be sending texts or Skyping. She currently has no boyfriend and very few friends - and ALL of them believe that she is a felon.
I also believe that Nacho will play a very large role in 4B. It is MY opinion that he will commit a crime - or more than one crime - and will be able to pin it on Bay.
We will see if Tank tries to regain his reputation - at Bay's expense.
If bad things happen to Bay because of Nacho, then it will be Daphne who will feel the guilt of that. If Bay has to go to prison, if only for a few hours or a day, Daphne will blame herself for bringing this all on Bay, Her guilt will become overwhelming. She also faces the pressure to get good grades. If she doesn't become a doctor, then she will have let Bay's loving sacrifice be for absolutely nothing. She can't allow that. She MUST become a doctor.
It is MY "prediction" that between Nacho, the police, the courts, the internet, the media, and the public, Bay will be harassed like no one ever has been on TV before - and Daphne will face the guilt of that. By the time that this series ends, Bay will not be able to feel anything anymore and Daphne will become a really nasty person, hated by most people , including both of her mothers and Toby - but she will be daddy's little girl - spoiled rotten, with no conscience, manipulative, conniving, and virtually every other bad word that you can think of.
I will understand it if you feel that my "predictions" are too negative but maybe you would like to give your opinions as to what may happen in 4B and beyond. PLEASE - NO spoilers. Let me hear your ideas on where this show is headed.
