ABC Family's Official Summary


This section needs more writing to complete the 10th episode.

Bay presents her work at an art show at Buckner Hall and a man comes up and complements her on her work. It turns out that this man is Bay's biological father, Angelo, who has found out about the girls and has come by to see her. When John comes by to investigate Bay lies and tells him that Angelo is the owner of an art gallery that is interested in her work which John buys.

Daphne finally finds out that Bay and Emmett have been dating and furiously confronts Emmett. She eventually confesses that she has been having feelings for him. He refutes by saying that this isn't fair - he's had feelings for her for eight years now and she was never interested, but now that he's with Bay, she is. Daphne kisses Emmett but he backs away declaring his loyalty to Bay.

Bay agrees to get dinner with Angelo and doesn't tell anyone. She then invites him over to dinner at her house, where she breaks the news to her parents. John is furious, as is Daphne who still resents Angelo for leaving the family when she was young . Angelo tries his luck with Regina by offering to loan the money she needs to open her salon.

Emmett starts questioning his relationship with Bay and they start fighting over little things. He suddenly breaks down in front of Bay and Toby and tells her that it is too hard and he can't do it anymore. Bay suspects it's because Daphne talked to him. Toby confronts Emmett and tells Emmett that Bay likes him and to treat her better. Emmett apologizes to Bay for acting like a jerk and tells her with his voice that he only wants to be with her. Bay forgives Emmett and hugs him and she cries happily. Emmett hugs Bay back tightly and relieved. Later, Daphne tells Bay that she will not back down from Emmett.
