Switched at Birth season 5 episode 5 is titled “Occupy Truth.” According to the episode synopsis, “The Black Student Union takes a stand against the university administration. Sharee, Iris Watkins and Chris react to the racial tensions in different ways.” For a refresher on what happened last week, read my recap of episode 4.
In a Switched at Birth season 5 episode 5 sneak peek clip, Sharee tries to get students to sign a petition. Most people blow her off, but the one person who stops is incredibly skeptical and calls it “reverse racism.” He tears up the petition and throws it on the ground.

In another Switched at Birth season 5 episode 5 preview clip, Kathryn Kennish introduces Bay Kennish to Chris. She tells him that Bay will be his driver for the week so he can visit his aunt. He playfully tells her that he’ll need her phone number, so she brings up her boyfriend Travis Barnes. After Bay leaves, Sharee asks Chris to join the students who are asking Dean Peterson for a meeting about how black students are being treated. He says, “Nah. Not for me.” Watch the Switched at Birth season 5 episode 5 promo video below.
In another Switched at Birth season 5 episode 5 sneak peek clip, a student journalist interviews Iris about her hunger strike.
