Switched at Birth's 100th Episode Will Be 'Heartbreaking'

Are you ready for the 100th episode of Switched at Birth tonight?

“There are a couple really heartbreaking scenes for anyone who’s ever lost a parent or a spouse [like] Regina,” executive producer Lizzy Weiss told TVLine.com. “I can just imagine feeling them so present that you could see them and talk to them one last time. For people who’ve had a loss like that, it will be, yes, quite emotional.”

In “Memory the Heart,” a mysterious young woman has Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Lerlerc) flooded with memories of their deceased father Angelo, and they must decide if they should let her into their lives.

Toby is caught between his mother’s wishes to baptize his son Carlton and his wife’s feelings about faith.

Melody asks her sons to make amends so the family can be together for her birthday, but it might be too late.

Switched at Birth airs TONIGHT, March 21 @ 9PM on Freeform.

How Did Angelo Die On ‘Switched at Birth’?

How Did Angelo Die On ‘Switched at Birth’?

Today marks the 100th episode of Freeform’s Switched at Birth.

During season three, the series said goodbye to Angelo Sorrento, Daphne and Bay’s father, with an emotional episode.

How did Angelo die? Angelo was put on life support after a horrific car accident and died from his injuries over the course of two episodes.

At the time, Gilles Marini said that it was a good thing to see Angelo pass away, which forced Bay (Vanessa Marano), Regina (Constance Marie) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) to head in new directions.

“For so many different reasons and levels, [I was satisfied,” he told THR. “The way Angelo passed is similar to the way my brother-in-law passed when he was 29 years old.

“For me, it was the family connection that I lived with, so it was important for me to portray that. And more important than everything else, the fact that the family decided to donate his organs.”

Gilles added that it was a tough thing for his mother to watch.

“My mom refused to watch it because it was too real for her.”

Tune into the 100th episode later tonight @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.

'Switched At Birth' Recap: What Will Daphne Do Now After Campus Racism in Last Night's Episode?

'Switched At Birth' Recap: What Will Daphne Do Now After Campus Racism in Last Night's Episode?

Switched at Birth just got so real on last night’s episode.

During the show, Daphne (Katie Leclerc) and Mingo (Adam Hagenbuch) were accused of racism after attending a costume party where Mingo dressed up as Lil Wayne.

While Mingo and Daphne tried to figure out why dressing up like their favorite musician was racist and he can’t figure out why no one at the party had a problem with them but now it is a huge deal, most of their friends, including Iris (who pointed it out), aren’t taking to them.

“On the one hand she’s deaf. She’s Puerto Rican, or she thinks of herself as Puerto Rican even though her skin is white, but who has a bit of a blind spot or a different perspective on race,” creator Lizzy Weiss opens up about the storyline.

“To really throw her into that so that she starts off confused by why something that happens is causing such a stir with her black friends. Then to really take her through a journey, but eventually we shift and we put our black characters at the forefront of the story.”

So, what’s ahead for the show and Daphne? “[She] really struggles to figure out both what she did wrong and truly understand that and then try to mend it.”

Lizzy adds, “As we shift and slowly start moving towards the perspective of our black characters, Iris in Episode 2 really grows in importance. We get to hear her voice and really hear from our black characters [about] what it feels like to walk around a campus in black skin. What are things that white students and white viewers don’t realize? Let’s really ask them.”

'Switched at Birth' Will End This Spring With 90 Minute Finale

'Switched at Birth' Will End This Spring With 90 Minute Finale

Who got the chance to watch the final season premiere of Switched At Birth this week?

What did you think? How were you feeling when you heard why Bay and Daphne packed up everything and headed straight home for their “family emergency”?

Showrunner Lizzy Weiss opened up about the premiere and what we’ll be seeing throughout the final season with THR, revealing that the end will come in the form of a 90-minute episode.

“We figured it out. I mean, the network was kind enough to offer me either a 90-minute or a two-hour finale. I chose the 90-minute; I felt like a two-hour would have been flabby and really strange,” she shared.

“Compared to a 44-minute episode, double that would have felt odd but I felt like that extra half-hour kind of gave us time to really give a sendoff to every important character,” Lizzy adds. (WHAT CHARACTER?!) “I think it worked out OK. We had a few weeks. It was a little faster than I had hoped but it wasn’t like we had to screech on the brakes and do a 180 or anything.”

Lizzy adds about a theme over the course of the final, and shortest season, ever for the series: “The race story is really front and center for the first half, and then we kind of move on from it.”

“But as I said, I do like to take on interesting things. But then, as I said, we moved on to the last five episodes of rounding the corner and giving everyone a sendoff so that’s the second path: Where are they going and how far have they come since we met them in the pilot five years ago?”

Do you remember everything that happened last season on Switched At Birth?

We know we don’t — and that’s majorly because of the year long break in between the seasons. Who else had a year long break?

Thankfully, Freeform debuted a new recap of the show, catching us all up on what happened and what’s going to come on the hit show.

“I have a lot of respect for the creators to be able to take the risk to go there,” star Katie Leclerc shared in her interview with NKD mag about taking on a deaf show.

She adds of playing Daphne, “My favorite thing about Daphne is that she is just a high school girl. The deafness is secondary to everything else and I think fans responded to that.”

Switched At Birth premieres TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on Freeform.
