Tonight’s episode begins now – Refresh Page for Updates

Tonight’s episode of The Fosters begins exactly where it ended last week with Lexi’s parent’s freaking out after learning that Lena and Stef gave her The Morning After Pill. They have decided to pull her out of school and to send her away to a boarding school which causes Jesus to blow up. He blasts Mariana for spilling the beans out of pure jealousy because now both of them will lose Lexi.

Wyatt tries to get Calli to tell him about Liam but she insists there’s nothing to tell. Wyatt sends Liam a threatening message and so Liam pulls up near Calli at school and jumps out of his jeep screaming at her to keep her boyfriend out of his way. He grabs Calli by the arm clearly hurting her and Wyatt appears out of nowhere and knocks Liam over. Brandon also jumps in to break up the fight. He walks home with Calli and puts together the pieces that Liam abused Calli when he was her foster brother. Calli tells him that a young girl is now a foster kid in his home.

Kena’s job at the school is on the line because Stef gave Lexi the Morning After Pill but Stef doesn’t get that she crossed lines. It’s causing a huge blow out between them. Stef volunteers to talk to the family but Lena insists that it’s a bad idea. Jesus tries to reason with Lexi’s dad but that doesn’t work either.

The next morning there is a knock at the door and it’s Lexi’s parents. She ran away and they assumed she was hiding out with Jesus.  The parents split up with Lena and Stef both try to work their magic with the parent that’s with them. Jude has finally made a friend named Connor at school. Connor seems to be a lot like Jude and has accepted his girlishness. Connor and Jude are meeting at the house to work on a project.

Meanwhile Mariana receives a text from “Ana” and quickly runs out to meet up with her. She eventually sneaks into a house, finds her way upstairs and there Lexi is waiting for her. She brings her food and stuff and Lexi is hoping that if she hides out and misses her flight then her parents will realize  that she needs to stay home and not be sent away. It’s obvious that they have patched up their friendship for real.

Meanwhile Connor is learning more about Jude and his history of hopping from foster home to foster home. They are bonding and Connor seems to care an awful lot about Jude.

When Stef suggests going to the police the Riveras admit that they are illegal’s and that’s why they haven’t gone to the police yet. Jesus and Mariana run to get Lexi to come home. Calli is at her weekly foster kid meeting and after trying to talk to Sara alone fails she opens up to the group and starts to talk about Liam’s abuse until Sara runs out. Brandon is waiting outside as Sara runs off. Calli tells him that Liam raped her a few years ago and that she had blamed herself and she hates seeing Sara in the same position.

As it turns out Lexi has the upper hand. She tells her parents that if they send her away she’ll call immigration on them herself. Tune in next week for more of The Fosters!
