Switched At Birth
Girl With Death Mask (She Plays Alone)

Original Air Date: Jul 21, 2014

The episode picks up two weeks after Angelo’s passing, with all of the grief still very fresh for Regina and the girls. The rest of the Kennish clan is there for them, but it’s clear to John and Kathryn that something needs to move them out of their melancholy.

Talk about frustration!

Here are five highlights of Mind Wars.

Tonight’s episode focused more on the military adventures side of things and only tangentially touched on the virus antidote discovery. It also seemed to shift focus to Slattery as the secondary protagonist (as opposed to Dr. Scott) while Chandler remained the main guy.

The Nathan James heads to a monkey preserve in Nicaragua so Dr. Scott can have monkeys to test her potential cure. She insists on going ashore since she requires a specific type of monkey.
