Switched at Birth Season 5 will be the American drama?s final season and as recalled, there was a time jump of 10 months in the Season 4 Finale. We have some mild spoilers about plotlines for Bay, Travis, Kathryn, Toby and Lily, if you want to know a bit of what to expect for this last installment.
Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) are working on putting their lives together, although they left so much back home, Fashion n Style recaps. The last time we saw the girls, they were in China, then a phone call had urged them to go back home. Bay and Travis (Ryan Lane) had a big moment after he organized a whole exhibit for her, while Daphne was still struggling with her decision to study medicine. Kathryn (Lea Thompson) and John (D.W. Moffett) are struggling with their marriage with some financial troubles. And lastly, Toby (Lucas Gabriel) and Lily (Rachel Shenton) gave birth to a baby boy, who has Down syndrome.
With these events from Season 4 in mind, Marano had a little chat with Just Jared Jr. about the upcoming season and revealed that there will be returning plotlines. ?This entire season has a lot of returning story lines actually,? Marano said. ?We left a lot of loose ends open last season so now we?re tying everything together. There?s a lot of … it?s very much like a new year because so much time has passed and the girls are at these new places in their lives.?
She also added that ?You have to revisit stuff to just show how much time has actually passed.?
There are speculations that the phone call which urged the girls to return home could be related to a Kennish divorce or something relating to Kathryn and John?s marriage. It could also be about Toby and Lily?s newborn son. There can be a lot of reasons for them to be called to come home immediately as they have an entire family back at home who needs urgent help.
There are just a lot of possibilities and, hopefully, Bay and Daphne can handle whatever troubles come their way.
