Switched at Birth: Dance Amongst Daggers

Tensions continue to grow while Kathyrn hosts the annual school benefit at the Kennish residence, where her new family becomes a spectacle for all of Mission Hills to gossip about. Toby and his friend Wilke's (Austin Butler) band are excited to perform at the benefit, but they're in need of a drummer - can Daphne's deaf friend Emmett really play the drums? As the night goes on, Daphne is faced with a heartbreaking decision -- to choose between a family she barely knows and an exciting new love interest who makes her feel that being deaf is not an issue. Meanwhile, Melody (Marlee Matlin) and John appear to be establishing a bond during the benefit. As rumors fly about the family's real situation, Kathryn has a difficult time accepting her husband's new friend. Making matters worse, Regina accepts a dinner invitation from the ex-husband of one of Kathyrn's best friends.
