the fostersCallie is used to thinking for two – herself and Jude. Due to constantly moving throughout the foster system and never developing a sense of trust with those who took her in, Callie’s world never expanded beyond her brother and thus, she became emotionally closed off and unable to let even the most well-intentioned of people inside. Not even when Lena and Stef took her in did she let go of the demons that haunted her for years and when she made the decision to run away to Indiana to be with Wyatt, she made it without the rest of the family in mind. She wanted to leave to ensure that Jude had a good home and that she didn’t screw up yet another situation, but in leaving the Foster home shortly after Lena and Stef offered to adopt her, Callie shook the family to its core and they’ll still be dealing with the repercussions of her decision for a time to come.

Listed below are the dates, titles, and descriptions of the next four episodes of The Fosters.
