Callie is back in contact with AJ on tonight’s all new episode of “The Fosters” but like expected she hadn’t gone immediately to her mother with this information.

So Stef who continued to remain in the dark has been desperately using all of her police resources to find both AJ and his brother Ty. And that includes taking extreme measures such as issuing a warrant. Apparently Stef had gone on to issue a warrant for Ty’s arrest but she had also taken the additional step of adding AJ’s name to that warrant.

Stef had added AJ’s name because technically he was guilty of aiding and abetting a known criminal – his brother. And although Mike hadn’t wanted to agree with her, he had to agree that AJ had to have known about what Ty did. Hence the reason they took off when the cops began to get close and before their grandmother’s funeral.

So really there was little Mike could do to stop Stef. Once she’s angry, she kind of stays angry. And that goes for people who aren’t necessarily working against her or her best interests.

Stef’s mother had wanted her daughter to take the “drastic” if not safer step of a double mastectomy because she didn’t want there to be a chance for the cancer to come back in the same breast. Or possibly the other breast. However, Lena was still fighting her corner for the lumpectomy. She said it takes less of toll on its patients and she didn’t want to put her wife through surgery that she doesn’t actually need.

But once Stef got tired of their fighting and sort of got impertinent with her mom. She later asked her mom when exactly she and her boyfriend were going to be taking their trailer elsewhere. And Sharon took it to mean that her daughter was kicking her out. Which you know would have been fine if her trailer had managed to still able to start.

So the situation at home got awkward really quick. Although, speaking of awkward, Brandon’s senior project took a turn for the worse when out of nowhere his ex Tayla had agreed to play Juliet in his rock opera.

Though Brandon hadn’t actually asked her to join. If anything he had been trying to fight asking her when Mat had gone behind his back to ask her. So Brandon was then left with barely any choices. He could turn Tayla down and host open auditions but then that would make him look petty.

And while Jude gets probably the least amount of attention, he was making suddenly making himself be seen with his new friend because the one friend he has managed to make since his boyfriend had moved away happened to be just plain weird. The kid that Jude befriended was the same one that had gone after Callie at an event of hers for no reason. And he was also the same guy that had come over to play video games but somehow wounded up taking a nap in Stef and Lena’s bed.

So there actually came a point where even Jude was sick of him. Yet his sister reminded that there had once been a time when people used to say they were weird. And therefore she didn’t want her brother to shout names like that.

However, Callie had a few problems of her own. She had begun instant messaging someone on Fost & Found and she had thought that person had been AJ. Which is why she had even set up a meeting with him. And so imagine her surprise when AJ later called her but told her that he hadn’t been instant messaging her.

He had been hiding out in Arizona and had called because he was staying with a few sketchy friends of his brother’s. Thus that call had proved something to Callie. It showed that AJ wants to come and that the only thing stopping him is the fact he doesn’t want to be separated from his brother.

So Callie had told Stef about the phone call and how the phone number itself shows that it was from Arizona because she knew her mom would bring AJ home if she had all the information. And you know what Stef did? Stef had told her daughter that she would handle it which implied that AJ would still come home but that he woulnd’t have to lpose his brother.

When the truth was Stef had sent out for Arizona in a mission to arrest them a both. A plan Mike hadn’t agreed with yet he traveled with Stef to Arizona in hopes that she would change her mind the along the way. So Mike had gotten his wish in the end.

Stef had changed her mind about arresting AJ but she had also upset her daughter. Callie had found out the truth about Stef’s plans from Brandon and so she had ultimately wished that she hadn’t said anything to her mother. Because she now feels like she had betrayed AJ.

But Stef had come back after figuring some things out and she had made a decision about more than just AJ. Stef it seems has spoken with her doctors and she unfortunately carries the cancer gene that doesn’t ask if she’s going to get cancer but more like when. So taking the preventive measure – Stef has decided to go ahead with the double mastectomy.

And her mother fully approves.

Though that person that had been catfishing Callie turned out to be Jude’s new best friend. Otherwise known as the guy that he finally stopped calling weird because his sister had convinced him to give the kid a second chance.

And as for Brandon’s play, Talya was out and his sister was in. Mariana had gone on to lose the presidential race and so she decided to focused her talents on something else. Like the play her brother had created with help from her ex Mat. So really the guys traded one awkward situation for another.

Yet it was Jesus that had gotten in job in construction so that he could work alongside his biological father Gabriel.
