"Write a Lonely Soldier"[title 1] is the nineteenth episode of ABC Family's Switched at Birth Season One. It was written by Chad Fiveash and James Stoteraux, and it was directed by Bethany Rooney. It was originally aired on February 28th, 2012.


Bay learns that a helicopter from her ex-boyfriend Ty's military unit went down, but the names of those killed in the crash haven't been released. Emmett becomes jealous when he discovers Bay has been emailing Ty in Afghanistan. Bay eventually learns that Ty was not in the crash, and she tells him that she is seeing Emmett.

Craig learns that someone gave Brizia a large sum of money, and Kathryn confesses that it was from her. Kathryn teams up with Craig to find out how Angelo learned that Brizia was the nurse who made the switch in the first place, but they are met with dead ends. Daphne unintentionally gets a fellow Carlton student fired from his job in the gym. She scores him a job at John's carwash, but he is fired when he loses his temper after a customer says something offensive about his deafness. Daphne visits him at home, and they make up after she realizes he has no one to connect with because his family refuses to learn sign language. Daphne wonders if she’ll ever really connect with Wilke, who also can’t sign.

Meanwhile, Simone sabotages a Guitar Face appearance in order to get Toby to play a solo gig, but Toby figures out her scheme.

Bay: And now we're at the angry place.
Angelo's lawyer: Whoever it is, they've got enough information on that hospital to pay out like a busted slot machine.
