In  “Girl on the Cliff” (air date: Aug. 11, 2014), Bay finally decided to tell her parents about Daphne’s self-destructing behavior. Kathryn suggested that Daphne should see a psychiatrist, but her husband refused. He still believed that their family problems were easy to solve.

Little did they know, Daphne has been abusing the prescription pills from the clinic where she worked. It happened after Angelo died due to aneurysm. She usually got her stash from the clinic’s drug closet. She was immediately fired after knowing that she flushed some of the drugs in a toilet.

Aside from that, she was seen in the video feed with Nacho. They were vandalizing Wes and Regina’s construction project. Regina tried to cover it up, but Wes was determined to press charges.

Meanwhile, Bay found out that Emmett has been campaigning for both of them. She and Emmett were named as the King and Queen of their school’s prom. When one of their friends got  a problem, Bay decided to help her. She asked her friends to wear tuxedos rather than dresses at the event. Unfortunately, the school authorities refused to let them in. Bay and her friends continued to party outside the school.
