I am endlessly confused by how these mini-seasons work on ABC Family (Season 2B is a thing!), but I believe this is the first episode of Season 3. The Fosters is back, y'all!
As you might recall, when we were last with our lovely non-traditional family, Callie's bio-father was no longer fighting for custody and Callie was about to be adopted by the Adams-Foster family and this time nothing could stop them! Ha ha, just kidding, there was a big fat car accident. A pregnant Ana was driving, and Mariana and Jesús were passengers. Oh yeah! And Jude and Connor are totally sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. (And unfortunately, so were Monte and Lena.)
So here we go! Stef comes up on the scene of the accident and realizes who was there. Mariana is okay, but crying. We see Jesús and Ana being carted off on stretchers.
Stef wakes up. It was a dream?
Opening credits! They never get old. But I don't get what just happened!
Stef and Lena are getting ready in the morning, talking about how much they miss Jesús.
But they can call him! He's just at boarding school! Which starts in the summer! SO WHAT HAPPENED IN THE ACCIDENT.
It turns out Brandon is going to Idyllwild, but he's commuting. So he will be with us for the summer. Sounds like Ana was the one hurt in the accident, but we don't know much more. We do know it's been three weeks and that it was a hit and run. They still haven't found the other driver and, naturally, Stef is working the case since Stef mostly only works cases that are completely inappropriate. Jude is meeting Connor before class (summer school) and gets the most adorable shit-eating grin on his face about it. And Jude and Connor? Are literally SITTING IN A TREE!!
(Not currently K-I-S-S-I-N-G, but they'll get there)
The boys aren't sure if they want to be out at school, but Connor's first vote is "nay."
A guy outside the community center asks Callie for money, so I'm sure that'll come up later somehow.
Ana's baby is apparently just fine, and Mariana's helping out. The baby's name is Isabella. Ana is in a pretty difficult-looking brace and looks miserable -- that doesn't bode well for a newly-recovering addict.
Sure enough, the guy from earlier comes into the center and tells Callie he's a foster kid. His name is AJ and he wants to use a computer. Smash cut to commercial, because why not? How scary! A teenager needs to use a computer! (I've missed the way this show plays the most mundane moments as dramatic scene-enders.)
