Tuesday on TV: ‘Switched at Birth’ airs its final episode

First Published      Last Updated Apr 11 2017 11:31 am

There are several season finales tonight — "The Fosters," "Imposters," "Detroiters" — and "Switched at Birth" airs its final episode.

It may not have gotten as much attention as some series, but "Switched" (9 p.m., Freeform) has done some fine work since it premiered almost six years ago.

The premise is right there in the title. Bay grew up in a two-parent family that had more than enough money; Daphne — who is deaf — grew up with a single mom who struggled. And it turned out that the two were switched at birth and raised by the wrong parents.

They somehow formed one big, odd family and the series took on a variety of issues in the midst of its soapy twists and turns.

In tonight's 103rd and final episode — which runs 90 minutes — Kathryn discovers a long-buried family secret; Daphne and Mingo compete for an internship; Bay struggles to prove herself as an artist; and Regina takes a chance on love.
