The Fosters (ABC Family) Review “Us Against the World”

The Fosters has officially usurped Parenthood as the series most likely to provoke the audience to tears on a week to week basis. The second half of the season continued its consistent run of exemplary episodes with “Us Against the World,” which gave us the gifts of Callie coming home and Judicorn having his entire family celebrate his secret (true) birthday. A secret Callie and Jude no longer have to keep because they have the Fosters.

The lead up to Jude’s birthday party was a sweet reminder of how much of a mother figure Callie has been to Jude. The elaborate scavenger hunt spoke to the depth of their connection; Callie obviously always finds a way to make the day special for Jude. Giving him the gift of a home as represented by Hansel and Gretel finding their way out of the woods to be safe and happy was beautiful. It wasn’t just a gift, it was a promise that Callie is committed to staying and trusts that she and Jude have found a real home at last.
