"I'm not going to be selfish anymore, okay? I promise." -- Callie, just before making sure a pair of newlyweds who just agreed to make her a part of their family wake up the morning after their wedding to a missing kid. Callie's got a real funny idea of "unselfish." Ugh.
Welcome to coverage of The Fosters! I love this show, but I fully recognize that it occasionally overdoses on the schmaltz, so as it's a nighttime serial drama it seems the right fit for that Serial Drama balance of love and hate. But mostly love.
Fortunately we do open with a little bit of wedding night afterglow between Stef and Lena. The ladies got more action in the first thirty seconds of the episode than in the entire first half of the season!
Annie Potts, aka Stef's mom, does not approve of the Fosters' plan to adopt Callie and Jude. Callie, who is currently on a cross-country trip with Wyatt (who I love and wish that we were meant to see him as a legitimate love interest for Callie, but I realize we're all supposed to be rooting for Callie and her foster/adoptive brother and also eww and also why and also no). She's keeping mum on why she's on the run.
Wyatt sure is agreeable.
Brandon tries to check in with Jude to see what his stance is on the foster-sibling-lovin' he unfortunately witnessed the night before.
Brandon insists he loves Callie, and his facial expression when he says it makes it look like his IQ just spontaneously dropped 80 points in that moment.
