In the new episode of SWITCHED AT BIRTH, an alternate reality is revealed where both Daphne and Bay were raised by the Kennish family from age three. As a result, Daphne has a cochlear implant, and doesn't know American Sign Language. Having been spoiled by her parents to make up for the switch, she's manipulative and not the best student. Bay, on the other hand, is a straight-A student, often trying to compensate for being the Kennishes' non-biological daughter. In addition, Kathryn is a successful author of bodice-ripping novels and, while still married to State Senator John Kennish, their marriage is far from perfect.

Bianca guest stars on THE FOSTERS as Lexi Rivera, Jesus' girlfriend and Mariana's one-time best friend.
In the all-new episode titled "Saturday," the Fosters invite Lexi's parents to dinner and Stef worries that they will subjugate Jesus to views that disapprove of his non-traditional family. To make matters worse, Stef's conservative father shows up and the family dinner threatens to turn into an all-out moral debate.
