Rosie O'Donnell ("The Rosie Show") and Garrett Clayton ("Teen Beach Movie") Guest Star
Burbank, CA (December 2, 2013) - While Callie feels the harsh consequences of running away from the Fosters' home, Brandon becomes determined to find her in an all-new episode of "The Fosters" on Monday, January 20, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
In the episode titled "House and Home," Callie meets Rita Hendricks (O'Donnell), a woman who works in the foster care system, and it's clear it will take Callie some time to adjust to Rita's no-nonsense guidance. Brandon comes clean about the reason Callie ran away and, unbeknownst to Stef and Lena, he sets out to track her down. Meanwhile, Mariana volunteers to help with the school play in order to impress a cute boy (Clayton), but when she gets paired up with an old "friend," it could spell trouble. Jesus' meds are having concerning side effects, and he's desperate to find an alternative to taking the pills. Mike suggests he participate in contact sports to help relieve his aggression, and Jesus tries out for the wrestling team. Martha Mitchell directed the episode written by Joanna Johnson.
ABC Family will also air a catch-up marathon of "The Fosters" earlier that day, Monday, January 20, 2014 from 12:00 - 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
