‘Switched At Birth’ star Katie Leclerc gives HollywoodLife.com a taste of the drama to come in Daphne’s life. (Hint: It involves cute guys — and knives.)

Switched At Birth‘s seemingly never-ending first season continues Sept. 3 on ABC Family, and things are about to get crazy hot — in the kitchen, of course. HollywoodLife.com chatted with star Katie Leclerc about the new batch of episodes, and she gave us all the scoop on Daphne’s crush-worthy boss, the shady new guy in Bay’s (Vanessa Marano) life, and so much more.

1. Kitchen dreams: “Daphne’s biggest priority, as these new episodes start, is finding a job,” Katie says. “She wants to work in a restaurant kitchen, but the owners are worried about her not being able to hear in a potentially dangerous environment. She figures out ways to compensate, and I think that’s what her eventual employer [Justin Bruening as Chef Jeff] will ultimately respect about her. He’s very handsome, too, so I think she’s pretty happy about that. I think, like any 16-year-old girl, Daphne is a little boy crazy — so there’s definitely room there.”

2. Bay’s return: “When season 1C starts, real time has passed,” Katie explains. “A summer has gone by, so there’s been time for healing — but also time for running away. Bay went to the Galapagos, which is a great place for her to go, and she comes back at the top of the premiere episode. She’s got a new boyfriend, and everybody’s like, ‘What’s going on? What are you doing?’ … I think Daphne and Emmett have reconciled; They’ve spent hours and hours lamenting his mistake, and she knows he knows it was wrong.”

3. About that ‘new boyfriend': “I can tell you that Alex is Bay’s boyfriend from the Galapagos,” Katie reveals. “She comes back with him, and I think the Kennishes are very surprised because Bay’s basically gone from guy to guy to guy without any breaks. From Daphne and Toby’s perspective, I think they’re also concerned about Bay because they actually know what happened [between Bay and Emmett.]”

4. And then there’s Angelo“This dude has been around and left about a hundred times before, so what does ‘around’ really mean?” Katie points out. “That’s what Daphne is struggling with. If this guy says he’s going to say — which I’m not saying he is — then she’s not going to trust him. She understands he’s not 100 percent bad, so she might have moments of connection with him, but she’s not going to let him into her life.”

5. The lawsuit: “I’m really excited that the lawsuit story gets wrapped up in these eight episodes,” Katie admits. “I think the way the writers divied out the wins and the losses, and what that means for the two families, was done in a really clever way.”

What’s your take on Katie’s spoilers? Any predictions about Daphne and her boss, Bay and her boyfriend, or Angelo? Drop me a comment with your thoughts and theories!

After Season One I thought the show was very good then when Season 2 came out it started looking like a soap Opera. It was who was screwing who and when a 16yr old has an affair with a man of age isn’t that illegal. Like statitory rape or child molesting. and marrying someone to keep them in the US is that not illegal too. There is another show that is off my watch list. I would rather watch gators being killed at least it is real and entertaining to a lot of people. So in other words no more Switched at birth

Why only eight episodes they always show eleven i don’t think that’s fair because its such a good show and very interesting to a lot of us.

I am excited to see what happens between Daphne and Chef Jeff. You can tell there is chemistry between them and that something will happen into the season. I forgot the premiere was on last night, so I never set up my DVR for it. Luckily, I was able to watch it for free on Dish Online, which was awesome because they have current and old episodes on there of several shows. I watched the last episode from last season and then I watched last night’s episode. I told my co-worker at Dish about this show, so we were able to talk about it this morning after I watched it. I cannot believe there is only going to be eight episodes, but I am excited to see what plays out with it all.
