Season 2 | Episode 21 | Aired March 23, 2015
Did that season finale leave any of you reeling? Cause it certainly did with me. I was cheering and screaming and I just went through so many emotions with this episode I don’t even know where to begin.
Let’s start with Jude and Connor. I have a special place in my heart for Jonnor and this episode made me so happy. Jude painted his nails blue again (“war paint”) and went and sat outside Connor’s hospital room until Connor’s dad finally let him in. This was such a great moment because before Connor’s dad decides Jude can see Connor, he says, “I don’t care that your son is gay. I just don’t want mine to be.”
And then he lets Jude in to see his son! I think The Fosters has really done a great job here at showing the process parents have to go through when their child comes out. I mean, it’s not just an adjustment for Connor, his dad has to come to terms with it too and I think by admitting what he did and then allowing the two boys to see each was a huge step and it had me so excited. This was basically my reaction:
Next, Monte. Oh my goodness I was so frustrated by this. We saw this in the preview, but I was hoping Lena would pull back or something, but nope, she kissed back. Both of them looked like they regretted it right away, but I was just yelling at my TV. I’m really curious to see how they’re going to address it in season three and want to know if Lena is going to tell Stef or keep it a secret (as they both seem to be doing a lot lately).
At the end of the last episode we saw Ana move in with the Fosters. Well, “The End of the Beginning” is equal parts awkward and heartstring pulling as Ana bonds with the twins over the baby, but then her parents try to convince her to keep it. I really don’t think the Fosters will end up adopting the baby, I haven’t thought they would since the beginning. It just seems too soon and like Jesus said, I think they’re only doing it because it would make Mariana happy.
Speaking of Mariana, can we talk about her AMAZING dance routine? When they came out with the light-up costumes like they were Daft Punk or something and then Mariana had her hologram. It made me wish I could dance. Or at least expand my computer skills beyond Microsoft Word and Paint so I could do something like that.
Finally, we reach the end of the episode. Things are good, things are really good. Callie’s biological father signed the adoption papers and withdrew his plea for custody which means Callie can adopted now; Jesus had a great meeting with the scout from the boarding school; Mariana’s dance competition went amazing; Jude told Callie Connor is his boyfriend; and Brandon is auditioning for a fancy summer music program. Then boom! Or, I guess crash would be a more appropriate word.
It seems that Ana has gone into labour while driving the twins home and as she is going across an intersection another cars hits the van. At the very end Stef gets into her police cruiser and responds to a call about a crash with one reported fatality and… black screen. That’s it. That’s the end of the episode. Things were good and then someone died. I just… I have no words.
But maybe you do!
What did you think of the season finale? Did you have a favourite part of the episode?
Who do you think died?
As this was the season finale I don’t have a preview to post, so I will see all of you when The Fosters returns!
