The Foster’s begins with a literal bang tonight as Mike and Stef go into a crack house looking for Jesus.  He had bounced out to try and get Anna, his birth mother into a safe environment. Stef goes in first and is shot by Anna’s druggie friend. Mike is 3 steps behind her and shoots the gunman before getting Stef help. Lena gets a call from Jesus who has gotten Anna to safety, looking for a ride. As they are driving home Mike calls to tell Lena about Stef.

At the hospital they find out that Stef’s lung has collapsed and she has lost a lot of blood making it hard to stabilize things. Brandon arrives at the hospital and flips out on Jesus and Mariana. He is furious that his mother took them in and now she’s fighting for her life. Meanwhile Mike is being grilled by the police and the shooting will be investigated by internal affairs.

Eventually Lena is allowed in to see Stef along with Brandon, Jesus and Mariana but it’s after the doctor tells them that Stef may need surgery that could cause paralysis. Lena sends Brandon home with the twins and later confesses that she’s trying not to blame Jesus and Mariana for Stef’ being shot.
