She goes to Phoenix to meet Sutton. Sutton thinks she has a lead on their birth mother and goes to L.A. to find out, talking Emma into posing as her while she's gone. Emma is living the life she's always dreamt of, but it isn't as easy as she thinks. Along the way, she falls in love with Sutton's secret boyfriend.
Meanwhile, the real Sutton finds trouble while searching for their long-lost mother. Someone is trying to ruin her search, and she also ends up in juvenile hall. Plus she's found out that Emma has completely changed her life and stolen her boyfriend.
Both of them are facing hard journeys -- and they still have a lot ahead of them this season.
Also new this year is "Switched at Birth," which has been a tearjerker for me. It started when Bay Kennish felt like she didn't belong in her family and begged for a DNA test. Her family was blindsided by the shocking result: Bay was switched with another baby, Daphne, at the hospital.
The girls lived very different lives. Bay is rich and spoiled. Daphne is deaf, poor and grew up without a father. The families want to get to know each other, which leads to Daphne, her mom Regina and her grandmother moving into the Kennish's guesthouse.
Things don't go well between the parents. The Kennishes want to cover up what happened, which makes Regina angry. They also decide to sue the hospital, which Regina doesn't want to do. Plus, Regina is hiding a big secret from everyone.
The girls have problems, too. Bay wants to know her real father, but Daphne is mad at him for leaving when she was little. Also, Bay falls for Daphne's deaf best friend, Emmett, while Daphne goes for Bay's old boyfriend before realizing she loves Emmett, too.
"Switched at Birth" is a TV show, but it's real life at the same time. More family drama will be shown the rest of this season.
Starting Tuesday, "Jane By Design" is a new addition to the lineup. In it, high school student Jane Quimby is mistaken for an adult and hired at a fashion company. She has to balance both lives and keep them a secret from each other.
I had the privilege of seeing a sneak peek of the shows, and I can tell you they're going to be very dramatic and suspenseful, with some tear-jerking moments, too. Tune in and check them out.
