The Kennish’s interview potential new attorneys to work on their case against the hospital and despite Daphne’s reservations, Regina agrees to go into business with Angelo.

JANE BY DESIGN follows at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Jane doesn’t react well to Billy’s secret, while the Donovan Decker offices batten down the hatches for a top fashion editor’s visit in “The Finger Bowl.”

Now that Billy and Lulu have decided to take their relationship public, Billy must tell Jane. Feeling betrayed and lied to, Jane doesn’t take the news of the high school’s new “It” couple well. But now with the news out there and neither group of friends seeming very supportive of it, can Billy and Lulu withstand the peer pressure? And has Jane truly lost her one true ally in the social shark tank that is high school?

  1. I've really been enjoying "Switched at Birth." It has a lot of flaws, but I like Daphne, Regina, Emmett, and even Bay, as she starts to grow a bit out of her spoiled nature. I never thought I'd dislike Lea Thompson in anything, though. I find the Kennish parents to be the weak link in this story. They are caricatures to the point of being offensive.
