If you don't regularly watch Switched, watch this one anyway.

There aren't a lot of answers left dangling, but rather new beginnings to think about. People made tough, life-altering choices that put the thoughts of others before themselves. It was an inspiring episode.

If the situation of Switched at Birth often seems surreal and at times contrived the performances keep the story grounded as yet another alternative American family blooms under the California sun.

Since the pilot aired a year ago, Switched at Birth has improved in its storytelling, broadening beyond the two families into an exploration of the characters' lives and deaf culture.
