brandon's not a happy fosters

I personally think that Stef seeing Brandon and Callie hugging and her and B’s argument about him being alone with Callie foreshadows an eventually confrontation between Stef, Brandon and Callie in Season 5. I really think that it’s bound to happen since the parties in the know (i.e. B, Callie, Stef and Lena) pretty much dropped the subject of the revelation of Brandon and Callie’s night of love at Idyllwild. Stef and Brandon’s argument is only a hint of things to come IMO. I could see things building for a bit before it eventually boils over with Stef finally snapping. Stef has been very adamant about Callie’s adoption to the point where she said that Brandon should suck it up after he confessed about the fake I.D.s toward the end of Season 1. Plus there is the whole thing of Stef treating B like he’s a threat to Callie (i.e. the restraining order). I think that this is gonna all come to a head with Stef and Brandon having a very heated argument, which causes Callie to finally speak and standing up for herself and Brandon. I really hope that we’ll see this happen, because not only will it finally deal with the lingering issue about Brandon and Callie, but also put the spotlight about Stef’s behavior in this whole thing. Of course i want the ultimate outcome of this is for Stef, Lena and the rest of the family to see the light about Brandon and Callie’s special bond and true feelings for each other and how unhappy they (mainly Callie) have been since the adoption. I think that the latter would be a huge step in helping pave the way for Brandon and Callie to finally be together as a couple. I really want to see this happen in Season 5. In fact i demand it and think that the rest of the Brallie fandom should do the same. Like i’v said before many times, it is long overdue for Brandon and Callie to finally be together as a couple, which i think will help bring a new phase to the show.

okay but seriously tho brandon and callie don't get enough credit

let me explain.. 

THEY COULD EASILY BE MAKING OUT ALL THE FUCKING TIME.
THEY COULD EASILY BE FUCKING ALL THE FUCKING TIME. (the show would be more hbo/showtime than freeform but w.e you get my point)

but they don’t. they try. they understand their situation and they try so fucking hard to make it work the way everyone wants it too. and they just don’t get enough credit for trying! they want to be with each other (nearing the end of season three, we’re still talking about ‘what if things were different’), but they date other people ‘for the greater good’. they keep it platonic even when they’re alone when they don’t technically have to. they’re genuinely trying.

and i get that the stakes are high, so when they do slip up and act on their feelings that hell breaks loose but come on bruh. give em credit. they tried. 

like when jude was going off on callie for kissing brandon … he was all like YOU RUIN EVERYTHING! and it’s like okay but yoo, where’s her credit for not kissing him up until then? i’m dead ass serious tho like? wheres her credit for pulling away ‘because of their situation?’ she fought her feelings for him for as long as she could and the moment she gave in she gets yelled at like that? like he thought she didn’t try? how is that fair?

that’s like having a button in front of you that says do not touch and all you do is stare at it and stare at it and you like the button and you know the button likes you just as much as you like it and you trust the button and you talk openly and honestly with the button and the button just knows you better than anyone, better than you know yourself because the button is your best friend and in a world of uncertainty that is your life and situation, that button is a constant that you can rely on and you can trust the button to just always be there for you no matter what and you just fight the urge to touch it until you’re like, no one is looking *touch* and then RED ALARMS GO OFF! LOL and its like AWW COME ON!

brandon and callie give in but you have to be trying in the first place in order to ‘give in’. not doing something is required in order to ‘relapse’ or ‘fall back into’ and like addicts get a ‘chip’ acknowledging and crediting them for how long they ‘didn’t do something’ i just feel they need credit for that. sure. they fail (which is my favourite part, like ha. losers. you still like each other) but they deserve credit for what they don’t do. sure they kissed again in 2x10, but they didn’t do anything up until then and they only kissed when they thought they could and sure they had sex in 3x09 but they didn’t do anything up until then and only when they thought they could. they never do anything when their situation is ‘ON’ .. only when ‘OFF’. the moms might not even believe that considering they thought she was pregnant with his child (meaning they think they’re fucking behind their back) and i’m sure with the sex secret ‘out(?) the entire family isn’t going to buy the fact that they only fucked once. NO ONE WOULD. but it’s true. they work so hard man. they have feelings but they fight it. constantly. daily. and it’s shown to be exhausting. but them falling back into each other shouldn’t be seen as them fucking shit up all the time but like yo… they’re in a shit unique situation and they held on for as long as they could. they’re trying and making the best of the situation everyone is putting them in. 

give them credit.

Brandon and Callie love scene to their duet.

There better be a time jump coming to ABC Family’s The Fosters. One year minimum

Stef and Lena already worked their marriage problems, because honestly I don’t want to see the best relationship that holds the show being dragged and destroyed.

Jude and Connor are finally around 14/15 because they can no longer pass as 13yo boys.

The whole drama around AJ and his adoption is settled and we see more of him. And his brother. And learn more and more about him, his family, background, talents, dreams, etc.

Mariana being flawless as usual and does great things to empower young girls around her.

Brallie is officially over and Callie is adopted. Brandon is in school somewhere far, far away and everything is good.

Oh, and, recast or not, bring Jesus back.

This all better happen or else

Brandon is of course extremely heartbroken over the loss of Juilliard. He will struggle and come to terms with next steps after making a last minute call and plea to Juilliard. I can tell you that Brandon really grows this season, he comes to terms with several of the mistakes he’s made as a young man trying to figure out who he is in this world. He’s a more open and honest Brandon in some ways. That’s not to say that there won’t be secrets this season, but I believe that Brandon makes moves during these next ten episodes from a very good and open-hearted place. Brandon has always been a caretaker, but that need has often led him down some pretty precarious paths. But now, I do believe that Brandon is on a better and more self-less path this season.
