This section needs more writing to complete the 21st episode.

Bay and Daphne team up to shoot an ASL zombie movie for Emmett's 18th birthday.

Wilke finds out about what had happened between them and Emmett tells his mom that he had made a mistake with another girl. Melody asks him to decide if it is worth telling Bay. Daphne is also upset at the fact that she had missed out on so many Kennish family memories and blames Regina for not telling her about the switch earlier. They later reconcile during a late night swim. Regina finally agrees to help Katheryn write her book on the switch after they have a conversation about living in denial.

Regina: [to Kathryn] One suggestion, just make sure you take a really hot author photo so Sara Lazar can suck it.
Daphne: There was this whole childhood that I was supposed to have.
Kathryn: [to Regina] She's writing my story. I finally understand why you don't want me to tell yours.
Kathryn: You just don't tell a casual acquaintance something that personal. You just don't.
Emmett: Once she knows he's a monster, he has to die.
Bay: [about Emmett] It's Jekyll and Hyde.


  • This episode is revealed that Kathryn miscarried a child between her pregnancies with Toby and Daphne.
