The Fosters s05e10 Episode Script


1 Previously, on The Fosters It's a new charter.
Come with me.
You're really gonna bail on Anchor Beach? Honey, I might not have a choice.
And without Monte's vote, I don't know what chance we have of saving this school.
So I come in today and I find this.
I didn't break the model.
MARIANA: We had nothing to do with it.
Logan's girlfriend thinks I'm after him, so I asked Wyatt to be my pretend ex-boyfriend.
Are you drunk? What if your ex-boyfriend was really your ex-girlfriend? I love you.
Please, just give me another chance.
Is that your girlfriend kissing your brother? AARON: Why didn't you tell me that AJ was at the protest? - You don't trust me? - Well, it was pretty easy for me to steal you from him.
Grace has leukemia.
Please don't tell her I told you.
I am an undocumented immigrant.
CALLIE: Immigration's here for Ximena.
Jude, I need you to call Noah's mom.
Ask if her church will give Ximena sanctuary, okay? - (SIRENS BLARING) - AJ: Go, go, go! So what now? - Okay.
- XIMENA: Oh God, please.
Yeah - And? - Oh, man, she is not happy with me.
You did leave her at prom.
XIMENA: It's the middle of the night, where are you? - You wanna call Aaron? - No.
Not right now.
Why isn't anyone answering me? Hey it doesn't mean anything.
There's a lot of reasons why people don't answer their phones, like, Poppy's still at prom, she's probably just, dancing or something.
Hey, try not to worry about it.
All right? My mom's on her way, so we're good.
All right? Okay so, what's next? You, uh, you have a plan? - Like, a family plan? - Yeah, I'm supposed to call my lawyer.
Okay, do you know the number? Yeah.
They made me memorize it.
Hm, wait.
Did their lights go off? Do you think they're leaving? I hope you're here to arrest that girl for escaping custody.
Oh, that's right.
You can't go in the church without a warrant.
So you want me to go get her.
Do your dirty work for you.
So, what, this was the, uh the plan all along? You were in on it? I don't know what you're talkin' about.
Why are you doing this, anyway? Retaliation because she spoke at the protest? It's a witch hunt, and you know it.
She's got her DACA status.
No, she doesn't.
It's expired.
(THEME MUSIC PLAYS) It's not where you come from It's where you belong Nothin' I would trade I wouldn't have it any other way You're surrounded By love and you're wanted So never feel alone You are home with me Right where you belong MARIANA: Oh, my God! Why are we dancing in the parking lot? Come on! You are so pretty, you know that? (HORN HONKS) MARIANA: What are you doing here? Mariana? Get Poppy.
I need to talk to her, right now.
Uh, yeah.
Poppy, my mom's here, she wants to talk to you.
What's wrong? So, Immigration came looking for Ximena.
She's fine.
She she made her way to a church and she's claiming sanctuary.
Oh, my God.
- Are you kidding? - So messed up.
- Oh, God, my phone's dead.
- Here, use mine.
Ximena said she tried calling your parents, but didn't get an answer.
Do you have any idea where they might be? No, they they weren't going out tonight or anything.
Okay, um, can we take you home? Should we take you home? - Yeah, please.
- Okay.
It's okay.
I'll go with her.
You go on home.
We'll meet you there as soon as we can, okay? - (CAR DOORS CLOSE) - Okay.
You guys in? (TOILET FLUSHING) Grace? (KNOCKING ON DOOR) Hey, Grace, you you okay? - Hey, oh - Hi.
- Do you feel all right? - No, I feel like I have a cold or a flu or something.
Come back to bed.
So you don't have your DACA card? No.
I mean I did, but it expired.
Look, I let it lapse 'cause we had moved.
And I was worried about giving the government our new address.
But I I reapplied a while ago.
And you haven't been approved yet? I don't know.
I haven't received anything in the mail yet.
Look, my lawyer's on his way.
He'll know.
It's Poppy.
I had Lena go and pick her up.
No, I'm okay.
I promise.
(SIGHS) Look, I'm really sorry, okay? I heard that they were gonna follow you to the station, and I just panicked.
You should've trusted me to handle it, Callie.
Have you called Mike yet, AJ? Uh, no, I was actually just about to And how how did you get involved in this? I I was just outside, uh, when we saw you taking Ximena away.
And what about Aaron? Was he there, too? He left, I think.
- Are we in trouble? - I don't know, AJ, I don't know.
But until we find out, the two of you are not to leave this church, either.
You hear me? - Are you there yet? - Almost.
Oh, no.
- Oh, my God - XIMENA: What? ICE is here, okay, I gotta go.
Okay, don't panic.
Hang up the phone and record everything, okay? Okay.
- Record this.
- Wait, what? - Poppy - You have to record this! No, Poppy, hang on a second! POPPY: Oh, my God what's happening? (SPEAKING SPANISH) Back up, please.
Who's this? - We gotta stick to the plan.
- Who's this? She's our daughter.
But she was born I was born here.
Look, here.
Turn that off.
You're not allowed to record that.
That is not true.
Not true, Mariana, keep recording.
We know our rights.
Keep recording.
Are you 16? Yeah, but my sister, she's my guardian.
Where is Ximena? Wasn't she with you? (SPEAKING SPANISH) They ICE They were after her, too.
- Oh, my God.
- Dios mio.
No, but she's okay, okay? She's at a church.
(SPEAKS SPANISH) She's okay.
If she's not coming, we're gonna have to take you in as well.
What? No, I'm a citizen! - She's legal! - She's documented! No, it's just to get you to Child Protective Services, okay? - Mama - Listen, I'm a licensed foster care provider.
I can take her home with me, I can take her.
I'm sorry, that's not how this works.
- Come on, - No, no, no! Wait, wait a second, wait a second.
Can she go in and pack a bag? The girl is in a prom dress, let her change her clothes for God's sake! - Please! - Fine! You got two minutes.
And she's goin' with you.
Take her.
Just go now! - Let's go.
- Take her quick and go.
You two, against the fence.
- Against the fence.
- Yes, sir, yes.
- Yeah.
- Okay GRACE: What's going on? I was worried, Grace.
Brandon, I'm fine.
Oh, my God, you're burning up.
Honey, where is your thermometer? In the bathroom.
Why did you call my mom? Yeah.
Yeah, I will.
All right, bye.
So they took your parents in.
And Poppy is with CPS.
I have to go I have to go Ximena! No! ICE is still outside, you can't! - I can sneak out through the back - No, no Listen, I'm supposed to take Poppy! - I know - I'm supposed to be her guardian, okay? - That's the plan! - I know it is, Ximena, but you are no good to anybody if you get detained too, okay? I know, come here, I know.
STEF: Thank you for doing this.
We're happy to help.
It's so inhumane what they're doing to people.
Ripping families apart.
(BEEPING) A hundred and two.
We gotta get you to the hospital.
- No, Mom, you're overreacting.
- Grace - It's just a cold.
- I'm not doing this with you.
Mom, I'm not a child, I'm an adult.
- Then stop talk acting like - Please don't fight in front of Brandon.
Grace, I I think you should listen to your mom.
What? Why are you on her side? Why are you saying that? Did you tell him? Do you know? So that's what last night was all about.
The limo? The tiara? Some pity prom for the poor, sick girl, huh? That wasn't it at all, Grace.
Get out.
- Grace, don't - I wasn't trying to Get out.
Please? My mom said Immigration is still there.
They're stuck in the church for now.
I don't understand why can't Callie and AJ leave? What was AJ even doing there? Who's AJ? He's Callie's ex.
Yo, can you pass the O's? So, what happened to her boyfriend? Adam or Aaron? I don't know, maybe they broke up.
People breakin' up at prom all the time.
- And gettin' back together.
- Mmm.
So, why were you all up on Mariana? That was just an act, right? There was never any ex-boyfriend or girlfriend, was there? Yeah no, there was never an ex-anything.
Told you.
Yeah, but, why would she do that? Well, she was freaked out by that nasty DM Olivia sent her.
So she made it up.
What DM? There's no rollover with DACA.
Once it expired, so did her low-priority status.
- But she reapplied.
- Is there any way to find out if it's been approved yet? Not in the middle of the night.
And it could be a while before we hear anything Which means I'm not getting out of here anytime soon, am I? Mm-mm.
So do you know where my parents are? No.
There are several detention centers in the area, but So what about Poppy? Well, there's no way CPS is gonna allow you to be her guardian without your DACA status approved.
I never should've reapplied.
Like, I never should've trusted the government.
At least ICE wouldn't have known where to find my family.
No, if they wanted to find your family, they would.
It's not hard.
Second of all DACA is your best chance at not being deported.
So what else can we do? Well (SIGH) the most important thing right now is to make Ximena as visible as possible.
Public outcry is one of the few things ICE is afraid of.
So we need to figure out how to spread the word? - Mm-hm.
- Hey! So, uh, we got a problem.
I'm the pastor here, this is my church.
You'll need a warrant to come inside.
They've got a fugitive in there.
Ximena Sinfuego is claiming sanctuary.
I don't care.
And she can't claim sanctuary for escaping police custody.
Look, if you won't do your job and bring her out, they will.
We gotta get Ximena outta here.
STEF: Ximena Sinfuego did not escape custody.
I was, uh, I was made to believe that she had been drinking.
She's underage.
But I issued a breathalyzer and it came back clear, so I released her.
That's a load of crap.
Can I please talk with you guys for a second? No! AJ, no We have to trust my mom, okay? We can't take a chance like that.
At least in here, Ximena has some hope.
Let's just try to do something useful.
Listen, you're punishing this girl because she spoke out at a rally.
You know, free speech is kind of a fundamental American value, don't you think? - Well - Hey, listen, she's a good kid.
You know? She's not a criminal, she's she's I know her.
She's one of my daughter's closest friends.
She's in there with her right now, okay? - Your kid's in there? - Yeah.
Yeah, both our kids are in there.
(QUIETLY) You guys know we don't have to comply with ICE.
Please let this go, all right? All right.
You got it.
All right, thank you.
Be safe.
You guys have a good one.
Hi, uh, I'm trying to find out where a girl was, um A girl was brought in to CPS tonight, we're trying to find out where she was taken? Poppy Sinfuego.
Monte came over tonight.
What? Why? 'Cause she got another job.
She's leaving Anchor Beach.
- Are you serious? - No way.
Oh, my God.
If she leaves, does that mean we lose her vote? And that's not even the worst part.
Yeah, I can I can wait.
Mama might be going with her.
Um, did you find her? Nobody knows anything.
I doubt we're gonna get any answers until tomorrow.
But I'm I'm gonna keep trying.
I'll text Callie and let Ximena know.
Thank you, honey.
What? Oh, uh nothing.
Hey, what's what's goin' on? - We got no idea.
- Not a lot.
- (PHONE DINGS) - Oh, uh What? Callie's live on Facebook.
- Hm? - Yeah.
What? Can you hand me my phone? They chased us like we were criminals.
Like if we robbed a bank, or killed someone or something.
- They took my family away - Oh, my God.
For no reason.
You know, we're we're good people.
We haven't we haven't done anything wrong.
All because she dared to speak up against U.
immigration policy, which is really messed up.
So Ximena is claiming sanctuary in this church, and we're not leaving here until she can come, too, so, we should sign off now, but please send this video to everyone you know.
We need to get Ximena's story out there.
It was not my bed to make But it might have been my soul to take (KNOCK ON DOOR) Hey, bud I'm kinda surprised you're home.
You okay? How was How was prom? Um it was great until it wasn't.
What happened? Grace has leukemia.
Oh, my God.
Apparently, she's having some sort of relapse - or whatever they call it.
- Oh, no And she didn't want me to know, but her mom told me.
And um tonight she got, a a fever, and I didn't know what to do, so I called her mom, and made her come over.
Honey, you did the right thing, you know that, right? Why didn't she want me to know? I don' t know.
She's probably a little embarrassed, and scared, and doesn't want you to see her so vulnerable, maybe? But that doesn't change how I feel about her, I mean, I I still love her.
Do no good, I will do no harm Well, she might not trust that.
Maybe you need to show her.
Okay, Pastor Nicole is gonna be bringing some bedding in for you guys.
Try and get some sleep, as much as you can.
Um, Mike and I will be out in my car, keepin' an eye on ICE.
- Why aren't they leaving? - I don't know, love, I don't know.
It's gonna be okay.
Trust us.
Call us if you need anything, okay? Yeah.
I hate to even say this, but one reason they might be hanging around is if they're tryin' to get a warrant.
I thought they wouldn't come into a church.
They won't come in for Ximena, but they could get the FBI to come in for your kids.
Are you trying to get a warrant to arrest our kids? They're transporting an undocumented immigrant and interfered with a federal investigation.
Come on as far as I know, no citizen of the United States has ever been arrested for helping an immigrant find sanctuary.
Look, you wanna take your kids home? All you gotta do is go in there and bring out Ximena Sinfuego, and this all goes away.
They're just bluffing.
They're not gonna arrest Callie and AJ, but we're not leaving here until ICE does.
That's smart.
What'd you say to Callie about getting involved in all this? I don't know exactly what to say to her.
Well, I mean, at least she didn't put her life in jeopardy.
Yeah, well, I guess that's something, huh.
- It was for a really good reason.
- It always is, isn't it? Listen, we're gonna stay here tonight, and keep an eye on things.
You guys need to get some sleep.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Call me if anything changes.
Of course I will.
I just talked to my guy at the Bureau.
He says if this was a year ago, no way the FBI would touch this, but today, if ICE is putting a lot of pressure on them, who knows? So, there you go.
Wow it's been a long time since I've heard you do that.
Do what? Forget to breathe.
- What? - You used to do that all the time when we were married.
You'd forget to breathe.
Used to scare the bejesus outta me.
Really? I had no idea.
Here's some more blankets and pillows.
And, uh, there's some stuff, some sweatpants and stuff from our clothing drive.
It's all clean, I promise.
ALL THREE: Thank you.
I don't mean to overstep, but if anyone wants to talk or pray, I'm here.
Thank you so much for everything that you're doing for me.
But I don't know how to pray to a god that allows my family to get torn apart.
Oh, I I don't pray to that God, either.
I don't believe in a God that controls every little thing that happens on Earth.
I don't think that God decides who wins a football game or the Grammys.
I believe in Emmanuel.
The name we give Jesus at Christmas.
It literally means "God with us.
" And God is with you always.
In things big and small.
In the strength you have to keep going in your hope in other people.
You should get some rest.
- I'll be in my office.
- Okay.
- Thank you.
- Thank you, Beth.
I should get changed.
This seems appropriate.
(LAUGHING) - Good night.
- Good night.
I'm really sorry I got you mixed up in all this.
I knew what I was gettin' myself into, Callie.
I didn't.
What did you expect, runnin' away from ICE? Well, I didn't think they were gonna chase us.
I knew my mom would not be happy about it, but I don't know, I I can't, like, just stand by and watch bad things happen to people.
No kidding.
(SIGHS) I just hope my family isn't disappointed in me.
- (EMMA SQUEALS) - (LAUGHS) Ugh okay, enough! I'm not trying to see that.
You're rude.
LENA: All right, okay, all right.
JESUS: Sorry! Get moving.
(LAUGHS) So Emma, you got everything you need? Mm-hm.
Thank you.
So are you really leaving ABCC? Jude told me.
I don't know.
I might not have a choice.
I mean, there might not even be an Anchor Beach to come back to.
Or they might fire me.
I mean, I have to keep my options open.
What, so you're just gonna abandon us? No, Mariana, I'm going to make sure that I can still provide for this family.
I hardly think that's abandoning anyone.
Can we talk about this later? What did you see on your phone earlier? Uh, you mean, like, Callie's live-stream? No.
In the kitchen, earlier, you looked at your phone and you got a weird look on your face.
I got a text from Nick.
- Mariana - He told me that he knows who destroyed the model, and that he can help us save Anchor Beach.
Wait, you don't believe him, do you? Maybe he just wants an excuse to get back in touch with you.
Come on, he is so manipulative.
I know.
It's just Look, you heard my mom.
What if we can't save the school? Okay, we don't know what's gonna happen.
Not yet, anyway, so don't go doing anything stupid.
I won't.
Don't worry, I know who Nick is.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Grace Grace.
I'm gonna grab a coffee and let you guys talk.
Okay? My mom told me that she made you promise not to tell me you knew.
Still, I'm sorry.
It's okay, I would've done the same thing.
Just so you know it's not the reason why I wanted you to have an awesome prom.
I mean, I I was planning all of that way before ever s since you told me you never got to go to one.
Why didn't you tell me, though? Uh, um (CLEARS THROAT) I was diagnosed with leukemia when I was nine.
And I barely remember a time when I wasn't the "sick girl.
" The one with cancer, the one that everyone looked at with a pitiful shake of the head.
And you never looked at me like that.
Which was one of my favorite things about us.
I didn't wanna change what we had.
But it doesn't.
Nothing can.
Thank you.
But I mean, we both know I need to go home.
And you have your whole life here.
Yeah, we can figure it out, though, we Come on.
At least have enough respect for me to admit the truth.
That we need to say goodbye.
I could but I won't You've seen this act before Creating distance Has been making less sense It's senseless Why were you outside with me when Immigration came for Ximena? I'm grateful that you were.
Um it looked like you and Aaron got into a fight, and I, uh, I just wanted to make sure you were all right.
So you left Dawn to come check on me? So what were you guys fighting' about? You, mostly.
It's always you.
So, you haven't called him 'cause you guys were fighting? He He kinda gave me an out.
He said that, um, if I wanted to talk, that he would be waiting in the car.
And I was gonna go, but that's when I saw Immigration, so I just never showed up.
I don't know, maybe it's better.
Yeah, maybe I should just like, let it go.
He said some really shitty things.
Do you want out? I don't know.
I gotta admit, I, uh (SIGH) I thought being with someone else was gonna make getting over you a lot easier, but Maybe it takes time.
Or maybe, I don't really wanna do it.
Get over you, I mean.
We should really get some sleep.
(CLEARS THROAT) You go on.
I'll be down in a few minutes.
Bit off more than I could chew Like floating forever See the morning sun Can we just pretend So you and AJ have history, or what? Yeah.
I never told you that? Mm-mm.
I mean, he's hot.
Are you interested? No I don't date boys.
I'm gay.
I never told you that? Um, no I mean, it doesn't matter or anything.
I can't believe I just came out to you in a church.
Hope I don't get struck by lightning.
Yeah No, just because I don't wanna get hit by lightning.
Not because you're you know (LAUGHING) Oh And just so you know this is my worst nightmare.
And I thank God that I'm not going through it alone.
I hate not knowing if Callie's okay.
Both our moms are there.
Everything's gonna be fine.
You don't know that.
You don't know Callie.
Well, whatever happens I'm here.
I love you.
I love you, too.
Good morning.
I'm Dr.
Hi, I'm Susan.
I'm Grace's mom.
Well, it's nice to meet you both.
Grace, how are you feeling? Pretty good, I guess.
Well, it's good you came in We'll get you stronger, and hopefully you can go home in a few days.
But there's something I'd like to talk to you about.
I just had a nice long talk with your oncologist in Marin.
We both agree, there is a new treatment we offer here for recurrent adolescent leukemia, just approved by the FDA, that you are a perfect candidate for.
Really, what is it? - Gene therapy.
- Gene therapy? What What is that? Well, we alter some of your cells, then re-insert them into your body to attack the cancer.
Basically, it super-charges your immune system to fight the disease, and we've been seeing incredible results.
More than 80 percent of people go into remission.
Wow, that sounds amazing.
It is.
Of course, there can be potential side effects, uh, fever, blood pressure problems, lung congestion, some of which can be life-threatening themselves, so Well, even so, what do you think? Brandon this doesn't concern you.
Mom I wanna do it.
Grace, you heard what she said.
The side effects alone could be life-threatening.
Yes, and this disease is also life-threatening.
And a jillion rounds of chemo haven't worked.
- Grace, we need to talk about this - No, we don't.
With all due respect, I mean, if it it's what she wants, isn't it up to her? Yeah.
Mom, I'm doing this whether you like it or not, and if you don't approve, you can just home without me.
(PEOPLE CHATTERING) Mike, get off Wake up, wake up, wake up.
- Hmm.
- Look.
(PHONE RINGS) Hello? STEF: Look outside.
What? Look outside.
Guys? Get up.
Get up.
Get up.
- Hmm? - I don't know.
- What's goin' on? - I don't know.
(PEOPLE CHATTERING) Oh, my God! They're all here for you! We, uh, we brought some clothes and some food.
We couldn't just sit at home and do nothing, but I guess everyone else had the same idea.
No kidding.
AJ: They don't look very disappointed to me.
(CROWD BOOING) What is the FBI doing here? What's going on? I think they're here for our kids.
I know that she doesn't want you to leave, okay? She needs you.
I'm not leaving.
It's just Scary as hell.
You know, we've been through this before.
I mean, it's just so hard, you have no idea.
Her father's completely unreliable.
He's got a new family of his own, and we have no help here.
There's no support system.
Yes, you do.
(CROWD BOOING) (CROWD CHEERING) Wrap it up! We're outta here! Oh, my God! ICE is leaving! Thank you! Thank you! I'm so glad you guys aren't in trouble.
(CHEERING) - Hey! - Hey! - Pretty big, huh? - (LAUGHTER) Hey, girl.
(LAUGHS) Here's a couple things for you, all right? - I am so proud of you.
- Thank you.
You did a good thing here.
But I'm I'm not done.
Honey, it's time to come home.
No! Ximena can't leave until her DACA's sorted out.
And they could come and get her at any point, and I I I promised her that I wouldn't leave until she's We know.
We really admire your loyalty, Cal, but you also promised us that you would take care of yourself, not blow things up.
- But this isn't - You still have a lot of things to do right now, you have to complete your college applications, finish school, graduate It's not a debate, honey.
It's not a debate.
- Just give me a minute.
- Yes.
You didn't think I was gonna let you stay in here with me, did you? You can do me a lot more good out there.
No offense, but, uh you snore like my Uncle Jorge.
(LAUGHS) No, seriously.
We call him Uncle Snore-hey.
(BOTH LAUGH) I, uh I can never thank you enough.
I've never met anyone who cares about other people more than you.
- Call me anytime, okay? - Yeah.
I'm gonna come back.
Thank you.
She's right, you know? That's one of the best things about you.
All right, let's do this.
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) There she is! - You went viral.
- Oh, my God - Thank you, guys.
- I'm happy you're safe.
Okay, I'm gonna take Mama to the car, you guys catch up, yes? Hey.
I saw your Facebook Live.
I'm glad you're okay.
Are we okay? Yeah, I can come by and see the school next week.
When? Okay, uh, anytime after 2:00 is fine.
LENA: Yeah, I know where that is Okay, well, we can just say 3:30 then, that's fine.
Okay, great.
Got it.
(INHALES SHAKILY) - Feelin' better? - Yeah, much.
- Well, you certainly smell better.
- Well, thank goodness for that.
(LAUGHS) So I talked to CPS, and I guess they've already got a family for Poppy, which is good.
And um, I have a number to give you, for Ximena.
That's great.
They were gonna take her away, and like, I turned around, and AJ was right there and I didn't have time to So you you were coming to the car? Yeah.
Honest to God, there is nothing between me and AJ anymore.
- I care about you, so much.
- You, too.
But But But I think we need to take a big step back.
Oh okay.
We jumped into things pretty fast, you know, and I think we both have trust issues because of it.
And it's making us be really nasty to each other.
And I think that if we want this to you know, last, or be something good, we need to rebuild it, from the ground up.
Starting as friends.
For now.
What what do you think? Um I think you're right.
I mean, it's not like the fairy tale, or whatever, but fairy tales never last, so friends it is.
For now.
(LAUGHS) Hey, how you doin'? I'm definitely gonna get a little stir crazy in here, but um, I'm doing okay for now.
Good, um, so, I've been working on, like, a profile of you, just using the footage that we took last night, and then the video that Mariana took of Poppy and your parents.
And I'm editing something together that we can put up online for people to pass along so that they know your story.
