While Callie was understandably worried about being thrown back into the foster system once Lena and Stef found out about the kiss with Brandon, one thing she might not have considered is how the encounter would impact her probation; granted, she didn’t run away from Wyatt thinking that she was going to be picked up by the police, but now that she has, she’s facing potential difficulties in getting placed back with Lena and Stef (and released from the facility she’s being held in) due to said kiss. There was already no guarantee that she would even want to be back with the Fosters after the way she left, since she thinks that her presence would only make things more difficult for Jude, and now that it looks like she could relent and want to be back home, circumstances might get in the way and she could be on the outside looking in on what would be a great situation for her.
Listed below are the dates, titles, and descriptions of the next five episodes of The Fosters.
Monday, January 20th – “House and Home”
Callie meets Rita Hendricks, a woman who works in the foster care system, and it’s clear it will take Callie some time to adjust to Rita’s no-nonsense guidance. Brandon comes clean about the reason Callie ran away and, unbeknownst to Stef and Lena, he sets out to track her down. Meanwhile, Mariana volunteers to help with the school play in order to impress a cute boy, but when she gets paired up with an old “friend,” it could spell trouble. Jesus’ meds are having concerning side effects, and he’s desperate to find an alternative to taking the pills. Mike suggests he participate in contact sports to help relieve his aggression, and Jesus tries out for the wrestling team.

When Callie’s probation officer learns of Callie and Brandon’s relationship, it poses serious consequences for both teens. Stef and Lena are forced to take more severe measures to keep them apart. Meanwhile, Stef returns to work, leaving Lena riddled with anxiety. Jesus bonds with his wrestling team but Lena’s reaction to a hazing tradition threatens to shake the hard-earned respect of his teammates.

Fearing Callie’s actions will get them both sent away from the Fosters’ home, Jude makes preparations.

During a family visit, a miscommunication makes things awkward between Brandon and Callie. Rita informs Stef and Lena that Callie’s plans for the future may not include them. But when a secret Callie shares with one of her housemates leads to tragedy, Callie just might reconsider her situation. Stef and Lena talk to Jude about moving forward with his adoption, and he must decide if he wants to be part of the Foster family, even if Callie does not.
