The fourth season finale of “The Fosters” left the Foster siblings in turmoil.

In the episode titled “Until Tomorrow,” Christina traded places with Callie (Maia Mitchell). Although, she didn’t know that Troy pleaded guilty to the murder of his grandmother. The Fosters’ eldest daughter is stuck in a motel with Diamond’s pimp. Her mother, Stef (Teri Polo), tried to trace her phone. However, it was thrown in a car that went in a different direction.

“Look, she’s in an impossible situation, but it’s not the first time she’s faced one of those. She’s a bright and empowered young woman and anything can happen” executive producer Peter Paige explained to Entertainment Weekly.

Despite Diamond’s questionable loyalty, Paige asserted that Callie’s current situation will give her a life-changing experience. In turn, this will set up her journey in the upcoming season.

Meanwhile, Jesus (Noah Centineo) finally confronts Emma (Amanda Leighton) about her abortion. He believes that his brother, Brandon (David Lambert), fathered the baby.

“It’s around the commodification of information and how much it means to us to be included in big decisions,” said the showrunner. Paige also revealed that Jesus was not mad at what his girlfriend did. The fact that she didn’t tell him about it upset Jesus more.

The episode also featured Callie and Jude (Hayden Byerly), who bade each other goodbye. It also focused on Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) as she works on her “anonymous” Twitter account.

Paige also said that, in season 5, Jude will have his own fish to fry, Brandon will be “poking his neck out of his shell again,” and Mariana will deal with the result of her actions.

He hinted that there will be no time jump in the next season for the show will start to deal with the characters’ “moment of utter and complete crisis” right away.

“Season 5 is a little bit of a reset to our family, our home, and the sort of simpler and brighter and happier times that our family really needs,” he went on to say.

“The Fosters” will return on July 11 on Freeform.
