On tonight’s episode of The Fosters, Callie really wanted to get to know her sister and Sophia was the same way however including Jude in their budding relationship wasn’t as easy as Callie thought. Primarily, because her brother harbors some jealousy (it used to be him and Callie against the world) and sadly he’s not the only one. Sophia’s mother wasn’t that keen on becoming an extended family either. The older woman view Callie as a threat and in doing so she’ll either destroy what everyone is trying to build or find herself outside of the family she so desperately wanted to protect.

Meanwhile, as Lena is recovering from her miscarriage, she came to realize that Brandon’s problem couldn’t be swept under the rug any longer. So she spoke to her step-son and got him to see that being open with his parents was the best option. But she later came to regret that decision when the adults in the scenario started fighting and laying blame on each other rather than put their son first or at least think about their son.

Mike wanted to know what Brandon meant by having sex and as for Stef – she was so consumed at seeing her son as the victim that she completely ignored the part he took some responsibility for that night with Dani. He doesn’t want to hear that he’s been a victim of rape no matter how Stef wants to phrase it and he also doesn’t want to press official charges.

If Stef forces the issue then Brandon told her he’s going to say his mother made everything up! Yes, Brandon as drunk at the time and Dani was the adult but he doesn’t see that night as consent getting blurred!

And while they’re on that matter neither does Mike. His son scored with an older and inappropriate woman. That’s all. He doesn’t believe in throwing around the word rape because he strongly doesn’t think his son was a victim of it. That is until Stef reversed the genders for him and asked what if it had been Mariana? If Mariana had gotten drunk and slept with an older man like say a teacher then Mike admits he would go for the guy’s head on the platter so why is their son any different?

Mariana has been struggling this past season with her identity and having a new member on the team had exasperated her own resentment. She doesn’t want to be seen as the girl of color nor does she want to admit she’s ever even met her birth mom. Her fellow dance team members had asked about Mariana and Jesus’s birth parents and Mariana had said it was a closed adoption.

She had also implied that Tia was only a good dancer because she was black. Though she did end up apologizing and not because anyone made her do it.

And Callie enjoyed her outing with her family. It helped her to see that she should accept her father’s help in paying for college. In the beginning, Callie wanted to turn down the offer seeing as it she counted it as guilt money but he reminded her that her mother wouldn’t have wanted Callie to turn such an opportunity away.

Also, as it turns out, it wasn’t Quinn’s wife that was the problem. The reason she was so apprehensive around Callie and Jude was her daughter. Sophia took it upon herself to impress Callie by putting down her mother, her schooling, and her privileged lifestyle. As if she had to make up for always having had it all while Callie didn’t.

The truth is Jill was pretty nice. Jude thought so as well. He didn’t want to like Callie’s new family. He had felt they would take her away from him but after meeting them – he didn’t feel the same way. Though there’s more to Sophia than meets the eye.

She put the idea into her father’s head that maybe it would be better for Callie if she came and lived with them. That way Callie could learn to love them like a real family.

In the last scenes of the episode, Dani was arrested. Mike finally saw his son without judgment and it was him that convinced Brandon to press charges.
