Following the party, and the photos going viral, Daphne runs into her friend Sharee Gifford [Bianca Bethune] on campus. The friends are excited to see each other – Daphne spent some time abroad in China and Sharee wants to know all about it.
Sharee can tell something’s wrong and that Daphne isn’t excited to talk about her travels. Daphne begins to explain about the party and Sharee has seen the photo. Daphne wants to know if Sharee was offended.
“Not really. I get why people are upset, but I don’t let stuff like that get to me. Some kid acting like a fool is not worth my time,” Sharee tells Daphne. Her friend’s words do little to comfort Daphne. It’s upsetting that people who don’t know Mingo are walking around campus saying awful things about him.
Meanwhile, Luca [Michael Galante] will pursue Regina Vasquez [Constance] Marie. During ‘Switched at Birth’ episode two, it will become apparent to Luca that the age difference gap may be bigger than he thinks.
