The Switched at Birth Season 5 premiere is titled ?The Call? and it may possibly be all about the Kennish divorce.
Season 5 will be the last season of the family drama which will premiere January 2017. In the previous season, Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) are living independently and working in China in an effort to put their lives together. While they were away in another country, a phone call urged them to go back home.
The premiere for the fifth and last season is titled ?The Call? and it may be all about the call that made the girls immediately fly back home. It is most likely family-related. There are speculations that the reason for the urgent call was because Kathryn (Lea Thompson) and John (D.W. Moffett) Kennish are planning a divorce and Bay and Daphne could be the ones who could talk them out of it. Last season, the couple had been struggling with their marriage due to some financial troubles, but could it really lead to their divorce?
Another reason could also involve Toby (Lucas Gabriel) and Lily?s (Rachel Shenton) newborn son who has Down syndrome. Some fans speculate that it could possibly be a death in the family, as Fashion n Style notes. Bay?s father, John, suffered from heart problems last season. With the speculations of a divorce, John?s condition might have worsened.
There are lots of reasons that could bring the girls back home and it will most likely be family-related as they?ve left so much back home when they decided to live and work in another country.
On a lighter note, Master Herald reports that Bay will have a new love interest in the upcoming season and it?s most probably Travis (Ryan Lane). Bay might take Travis seriously this time around and actress Vanessa Marano says that she loves Bay and Travis as a couple because their relationship somewhat came as a surprise even for both characters. So it will be interesting to see a new development with their relationship.
