Will Ty’s return crush any hope for a Bay-Emmett reunion? Vanessa gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop!

Switched At Birth returns with all-new episodes June 10, and if there’s one word to describe Bay’s upcoming relationship drama, it would definitely be “Love Is A Battlefield.” Ty (Blair Redford) returns from the Army, and while Bay is happy to see him, Vanessa Marano tells HollywoodLife.com to expect major “complications.”

“He’s coming back from war, and usually when people are coming back from war — especially in this TV world in which we live — they’re a little bit tougher than they were,” she says. “[Bay and Ty] want to try to pick up where they left off, but they can’t, because he doesn’t want to burden her with all the emotions he’s feeling.”

Still, Vanessa’s really excited to have Blair back on set.

“This was one of the great relationships of the series, especially for Bay,” she says. “It was one of her first serious boyfriends. She almost gave her virginity to this guy; she really loves him!”

Exploring Bay & Emmett’s Potential Future

Fans hoping to see Bay and Emmett (Sean Berdy) rekindle their romance in this new batch of episodes will probably be disappointed, as Ty’s a pretty major roadblock in that process.

“Ty came before Emmett, so Emmett better be freaking out,” Vanessa tells me. “If anyone could give Emmett a run for his money, it’s Ty.”

That said, we will get some pretty epic Bay-Emmett scenes in a future episode that takes place in an alternate reality.

“We have a ‘what if’ episode coming up where we see what would have happened if Regina had told the Kennishes about the switch right away,” Vanessa reveals. “We explore Bay and Emmett’s relationship through that — like, what would have happened if the hadn’t met through Daphne?”

I really hope Mary Beth tells Bay that Ty didn’t really cheat on her it was some other guy with his girlfriend in his bed Ty and Bay are the cutest couple Ty was first not Emmett and he actually cheated on her yea I know he’s sorry but Ty and Bay will always be made for each other there really good together but Ty also lied to Bay what I think they should do I think they should make Ty’s plane crash or something then they can’t find him so then Mary Beth tells Bay that Ty didn’t really cheat on her and then she feels sorry for self again like she always does then Ty comes back up kinda broken broken leg broken arm stuff like that and then she goes and sees him and then they get back together and Ty cause he’s hurt gets an honorable discharge and then they get together not Bay and Emmett Bay and Ty best match ever ❤️Bay and Ty❤️

Part of me agrees however as it was seen in the episode where what would have happened if Bay and Daphane were raised together Emmett is the constant in her life. He may have cheated and Ty didn’t but Emmett was honest about it Ty may be upset about going over seas but knowing her insecurities he should have been honest about what happened instead of letting her believe he cheated. Twice Ty has not being honest about things with her.

Well, i think Bay and Ty should get together because he planted all that stuff in his room so he wouldn’t have to break up with her

Emmett is way better for Bay. He’s really sweet and I can tell he’a genuinely sorry for cheating on her and he knows it’s like the worst mistake he’s ever made in his life. Ty is way too old for Bay and he just bothers me. Emmett and Bay better get back together very soon or I’m gonna be mad!
