Future For Callie Is Still Uncertain as Family Drama Continues on ‘The Fosters’ Season 5

When we last saw Callie (Maia Mitchell), she was caught up in a scandal she might never bounce back from. Let’s just say it involves a pimp named Russell. Callie traded places with a girl, Diamond, who Stef (Teri Polo) was hoping to rescue. Instead, Callie’s plan goes completely left field and Stef loses her in a drug ring.  Still, she’s able to save both Callie and Diamond right on time.

While fans don’t have to wait for this heroic moment to occur on “The Fosters” season five, and it looks like Russell is out of the picture for good, it might be safe to say the whole ordeal could lead to even more emotional and psychological trauma for all involved in the newer episodes.  Not to mention it was pretty much all for nothing, considering Callie found out that she was off the hook in the criminal case she was trying to avoid to begin with.

In the meantime, Callie and Stef have an unforgettable moment in the car that is certainly a turning point for their connection that could extend into the season.

While Callie and Stef certainly have more than enough drama to go around, Jesus (Noah Centineo) is right behind them with issues of his own. He uses a bat to take out all of his anger on Brandon (David Lambert) after he’s convinced Brandon got way too close to Emma (Amanda Leighton) to say the least. Thankfully Gabe (Brandon Quinn) is able to stop Jesus before he hurts himself or someone else. Brandon and Emma try their best to convince Jesus that nothing is going on between them, and he realizes that they are actually telling the truth.

But the damage (literally) might already be done. Sure they can bounce back like they always do. But things have never really gotten this bad between them. Only time will tell how they can really move forward. The same holds true for Emma and Brandon as he can’t seem to get around the notion that she terminated the pregnancy. He certainly has lots to get through this season. Gabe will clearly be there for him, but he might not want to cry on Brandon and Emma’s shoulders.

Mariana’s (Cierra Ramirez) therapy sessions prove she’s still going through inner struggles. But when compared to the rest of the family, her issues could be small potatoes. She finally reaches a moment of peace after her back-and-forth with Ana (Alexandra Barreto). And while Ana confesses she’s not necessarily mom of the year, Mariana’s main concern is that she will be there for Bella.

While there’s not lots of action, the family dynamics that will play out this season are certainly complex enough to capture attention.

The Fosters” Season 5 premiered July 11 and airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.
