* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Tons, the biggest example being Bay. She's either a selfish bitch or a poor, neglected [[TheWoobie [=Woobie=]]]. Either way, she undergoes much CharacterDevelopment.

** Angelo: an estranged father hoping for a second chance or a slimy criminal looking for a cut of the lawsuit?
*** After the trial it became obvious that it's the former. Regina admitted early on that he wasn't really as bad as she had described him to Daphne.

* DieForOurShip: Some of the ShipToShipCombat between the Daphne/Emmett and Bay/Emmett shippers mentioned below got up to these levels. The more vocal D/E shippers would often take Bay's intial [[ItsAllAboutMe selfishness]] and BrattyTeenageDaughter tendencies from earlier in the series and turn her into a domineering vixen that has a {{wimpifi|cation}}fied Emmett under her thumb while completely ignoring her CharacterDevelopment over the course of the season. On the flipside, the more rabid B/E shippers will twist Daphne up into a possessive and psychotic {{Yandere}} that wouldn't think twice to MurderTheHypotenuse, conveniently forgetting the fact that the worst things Daphne ever did were mostly a bunch of failed and largely half-assed attempts at RelationshipSabotage. Thankfully, it's died down with the passage of time, and from Daphne ultimately pulling a genuine IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy in regards to Emmett and did give him and Bay her blessing.

** Also ''At First Clear Word'' in which [[spoiler:Bay is sexually assaulted.]]
* TheWoobie: Take your pick. Bay, Daphne and Emmett all have their moments. Bay feels she doesn't fit with the parents that raised her and think they like Daphne more, and she feels her birth mother chose Daphne over her. Daphne feels angry with Regina for not telling her about the switch and keeping her from the Kennishes, then has Emmett choose Bay over her. Emmett watched Daphne date other guys for eight years, before having her express her feelings after he started dating Bay. Not to mention the LonelyPianoPiece that plays when he can't understand what someone's saying.

*** And yet, she IS concerned about being agnostic rather than atheist. Perhaps she thought it's easier to say she is vegetarian than start explaining what pescatarian is.

** On an unrelated note, Daphne is a pescatarian, not a vegetarian, as she eats shrimp. A full vegetarian would not eat seafood.

** Uh, no. The age of consent in Kansas is 16, so they were legal from the beginning.

Added DiffLines:

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Bay decides to go to Carleton, despite having little signing ability and making no [[InformedAbility apparent]] attempt to learn. This leads to slowing down class for everyone and the art program being cut in order to pay for an interpreter for the hearing students. Naturally, a group of Deaf students resent this, led by the bully Natalie. Bay complains that she is being bullied simply because she's hearing, and that it's not her fault, and she's portrayed sympathetically, or at worst, that she and Natalie are equally in the wrong. This ignores the fact that ''it was her decision to go to Carleton in the first place''. She's the one forcing herself into a culture she doesn't respect. Furthermore, she personally did everything she was accused of, which makes the claim of discrimination absurd, and the worst part is that she never stops or even acknowledges that she did anything wrong (apart from hitting Natalie with a volleyball).
