Brandon looks back on Callie and Jude’s first Christmas with the Foster family in an all-new holiday-themed episode of “The Fosters,” airing Monday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on ABC Family.
As Callie and Jude spend their first Christmas with the Fosters, Callie feels the sting of still being an official foster kid while Jude’s guilt over having been adopted has him overcompensating. Stef feels that Grandma Sharon’s (guest star Annie Potts, “Any Day Now”) gift giving is excessive, especially when she learns where the money is coming from. Lena must face her own bias against another family member.
Meanwhile, Jesus enters the neighborhood house decorating competition and is accused of cheating by his neighbor Mr. Nesbit (guest star Michael Fairman, “The Young and the Restless”).
The episode, titled “Christmas Past,” was written by Joanna Johnson and directed by Norman Buckley.
