When “The Fosters” returns to ABC Family on Jan. 13, not much time will have passed since the lovely midseason finale wedding between Stef (Teri Polo) and Lena (Sherri Saum). Callie (Maia Mitchell) ran away after kissing Brandon (David Lambert), but when we return to the Foster household the morning after the ceremony, no one really knows that she’s gone. When will they find out about Callie’s departure?
Find out below, along with a few more spoilers from the first two episodes that will hopefully tide you over until the show returns:
1. Stef and Lena have a pretty crappy honeymoon. Once they realize that Callie has bolted, they’re forced to switch from happy, blissful mode to parent in a crisis mode while they track down their foster daughter, who’s gone on a road trip with Wyatt and his excellent hair.
2. Callie winds up back in the system. Why she decides to get herself thrown back in juvy will remain a secret until you watch, but know that she does it on purpose (and for a sad reason).
3. Brandon fesses up. But not until the second episode back. The first hour focuses on the family finding Callie, but the second hour delves deeper into why she might’ve decided to run away.
4. Rosie O’Donnell is one of Callie’s new allies. O’Donnell plays the leader of the group home where Callie winds up, and she’s pretty awesome.
5. Callie’s not the only one with problems. Jesus and Mariana are distraught that Lexi is moving away (not going on a quick vacation). While things might be looking up in Mari’s love life, her other friendships might not be ideal. And Jesus suffers a health problem that could be very serious.
