Burbank, CA (July 29, 2014) – Callie turns to her biological father when she learns Rita and the Girls United foster group home are in dire need of support, but her good deed threatens to backfire in the Summer finale of “The Fosters,” airing Monday, August 18 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
In an effort to help Rita with a dilemma involving Girls United, Callie calls in a favor from her wealthy biological father, Robert Quinn. But an unexpected betrayal threatens to derail the new bond she’s forging with the Quinns.
Meanwhile, the pressure Connor faces from his father to end his friendship with Jude intensifies and leads Lena to make a life-changing decision. The tension mounts between Brandon and Lou, despite their bandmate Mat’s warnings against drama. And a visit with someone from his past makes Jesus see his relationship with Hayley in a whole new light.
The episode, titled “Someone’s Little Sister,” was written by Joanna Johnson and directed by Norman Buckley.
