I believe they found out when someone at the hospital uncovered what happened and sent their lawyer to tell Carlos & Gabby. At the time, they didn't know which other family was involved. Carlos got told first and he wanted to keep it from Gabby... and he told the lawyer he didn't want it getting out. I missed the episode where Gabby found out, but from what I gathered off the previews, Juanita got run over by a car and had to be taken to the hospital. And I'm assuming that's when Gabby found out. Then Carlos & Gabby signed some papers stating they wouldn't sue to hospital if the hospital didn't pursue finding the other girl. But later on, after seeing random girls at the mall that *could* be her daughter, Gabby contacts the gay lawyer dude (sorry... horrible with names, but Bob comes to mind) and has him do some digging. She remembers a woman from that time mention getting her baby baptized at a specific church. Bob finds the other family and after Gabby gave the go-ahead, he contacted them. Carlos was rightly enraged when he found out. All in all, I believe that no authorities are involved because both families didn't want to switch, but did want the opportunity to get to know their respective biological daughters. (at least, this is what I remember happening. If I got part of it wrong... sorry!)

Here's what I think will happen. They'll continue on for a few more episodes and then something will come up and it will be revealed that the babies weren't switched after all. That the blood taken at the time of the accident was switched instead (I looked it up... remember, I didn't see this episode). Yeah, Grace might be a lot like Gabby, but along with the fact that Celia's body type matches that of Juanita, it will just be chalked up to mere coincidence. Unless it's discovered that Celia was switched, too. But that's a huge stretch, even for DH.

You got it mostly right but the way they found out was that the woman who switched the babies was on her death bed and made a confession to the priest, he then went and told someone high up on the staff, after she died.

I am guessing that Grace is indeed Gabby's daughter but I think they will realize that they already have their family, and Grace already has her family and they will need to back off. Then Grace will go the way of Tom's forgotten daughter and never be seen again even though that makes no sense.

Or they could kill off Grace's parents, forcing Carlos and Gabby to fight Grace's grandparents for custody of Grace.

good times...

I loved Susan going after Paul with MJ's bambam bat, but do little kids even know who BamBam is anymore?

My only issue was that the bat seemed awfully strong for MJ to be carrying it around. I did enjoy the scene, but made a mental note to myself that it was convenient that he was carrying that heavy of a club for her to be able to do that much damage.

The little girl who plays Juanita is very good. I really felt for her in this whole mess.

At the end of last season, the nurse who did the switching was dying. She confessed it on her death bed. That left the question of who and how many had been switched. So far we have just been introduced to one pair that have been switched, but who knows how many actually were swapped.

I wonder if we will ever find out about more switches. I assume Lynette had all her children in the hospital, except for the last which was born when she was held hostage. Carlos made them quit looking for their biological daughter but there was nothing about not contacting all the other families. I assume everyone would have been contacted by now.

I'm enjoying Gabby with Grace a lot more than I ever have Gabby with Juanita.

me too and sometimes I think that is because Juanita was raised by Gabby and maybe not that well

So Mike decides to go for the job in Alaska now. Does he plan on taking Susan and MJ with him? If not, pretty shitty of him to ditch his son at a time like this to be left with his flaky mom.

Juanita is so cute I want to pinch her cheeks! I had a little girl in a stroller stop by trick-or-treating with her parents who looked like a mini-Juanita and her name was Sophia! Adorable :)

Mike was forced to take the job in Alaska because Susan lost her job. He is leaving them there but he is basically putting the blame on Susan. If she hadn't taken the porn site job and then lost her other job, he wouldn't have to be leaving them. I think it is for 3 or 6 months? I guess we wont be seeing Mike around, too bad...

Have we seen what's her name at all? The one who was psycho about Mike for a little while? Then went lesbian? I can't remember if she left or just hasn't been written into this season. I wish they had found a way to keep the Soprano's girl on the show as a housewife. I really liked her character the most out of all of them. They could have ended their ordeal in such a way that they were no longer wanted or on the run or something so they could have stayed.

Mike blamed himself for Susan taking the faux porn job. He said if he'd taken the job in Alaska initially, she never would have had to clean in her underwear online.

I think it's a job in a fishery. I've heard of them, and they aren't the kind of jobs where you can bring your family along. You live in a camp or barracks type set-up, and work a zillion hours a day.

I expect Mike to be back sooner rather than later....after all, Susan will probably need rescuing - damsel in distress style - once again. :blah:

Katherine left to start a life elsewhere with her girlfriend, IIRC.

Awww, poor lonely hot Bob. But I am glad he and Lee are back. That was a very fun storyline. Gaby is the most consistently engaging Housewife. Eva is an underrated comedic actress.

I am enjoying the Paul mystery. Beth's mother was not a shocker, but I'm glad they finally told us.
