Switched At Birth: Mounting Tension Comes Spilling Over

It seems that not all is right on Switched at Birth. No, it does not seem to be the fact that you had two teenage girls that were ‘switched at birth’ when they were only nine hours old. No, it does not seem to be  that there are too many people living under the same roof. In fact, it seems that the tension is due to the fact that no one is living together anymore. Ironic?

To begin with I want to mention the most dramatic moment of the episode tonight, and that happens to be the very last scene. It appears as if in the final moments of tonight’s all new episode, John has a sudden heart attack. Regina storms into the kitchen to confront John, and finds him lying on the floor. As she quickly dials 911 and begins doing CPR we wonder how the night came down to this?

One word: tension.

When Regina moved out and in with Angelo to “get some space”, it was supposed to solve the problems. However it seems this moved only created more issues or added to old ones. The greatest tension seems to come from John towards everyone around him; especially Regina. Even simple decisions such as when Angelo and Regina decide to join the same country club as John and Katharine, disagrees with John. He is cold and almost border line snobbish to those two when they tell them their plans.

What is his problem?

Then John confronts Bay at her job about her hanging out with Ty. He makes it quite clear his disapproval of their spending time together. Even if it is just as friends. Bay does not react well to John’s expressions of his feelings and walks away from her father.

John’s most exploding moment is towards the Senator Koda, whom he is trying to win over good graces with. This turns sour when the senator hits on Katharine at dinner. John confronts the senator in his office when he learns what happened, pushing all office stuff onto the floor.

Later that evening, John finds Regina in Bay’s art studio getting a few brushes Bay had asked her to get. John demands that Regina tell Bay she is returning home to the Kennish household that night. Regina is shocked by his intense uppity attitude. When Regina makes a comment about John always having it in for her, he screams (yes screams) that she kept “my daughter from me for 13 years.” Something he tells Regina he will never forgive her for.

Thus we come to the ending scene of John’s apparent heart attack.

Where will next week’s episode pick up? Can the Kennish and Vasquez families ever find any harmony or peace between them?

It seems old wounds and pain will not allow this to happen.
