Bay and Emmett’s relationship is once again thrown into the fires of the hell that is divorce. Bay is suddenly thrown into the middle of the custody battle between Emmett’s parents. Melody needs a statement from Bay about the unhealthy environment Emmett wants to live in. Bay has absolutely no idea what to do. Emmett makes her promise to stay out of it but something inside of her thinks Emmett is on a bad path.
Daphne is feeling the pressure big time when her team makes it to a big championship game. Everyone is counting on her and fans who look up to her for inspiring other deaf kids are traveling to see the game. The game is against Buckner and Simone is in town begging Daphne for forgiveness. Not happening. After Simone fouls Daphne (was it on purpose?) Carlton wins the game. There’s not much time for celebrating when an official from the school announces the program will probably still be cut for budget reasons. Womp womp womp.
Emmett has made it abundantly clear that he wants to stay with his dad because of the freedom. Is there a little too much of that in the house? Toby and Bay visit to check out Emmett’s motorcycle for a birthday present they’re planning and discover a ton of pot in the garage. They realize Olivia is selling drugs and alarm bells are already going off in Bay’s head. Even Emmett’s dad isn’t happy about it and offers to ask Olivia to move out when Bay mentions it to him.
Emmett’s dad finds him to tell him he’ll be giving full custody over to Melody to stop the fighting. He knows he can’t win in this situation and it’s what is best for Emmett. Emmett believes he just doesn’t want to be around him anymore and is PISSED when he finds out Bay is apart of it. So pissed in fact that he ends his night having sex with Simone in her hotel room. Like. WHAT?
