“The Fosters” (3.18) recap “Can you feel me now?”


If you are having a bad day, please watch this scene. I laughed so loudly while watching it a second time that I scared our dog. Teri Polo and Sherri Saum are so spectacular in this episode, but this scene shows just what fantastic comedic actors they are. Lena has invited a couple of breast cancer pals over to talk about boobs over coffee. It doesn’t take long before they are whipping off their shirts to give Stef and Lena a peek at what reconstruction and flat look like close up.

It does not end there, however. Karen asks if Stef wants to feel her boobs. Stef looks like a deer in the headlights. This is a trap, right? Nope. Stef gives them a feel and then Karen asks Lena if she wants to as well (should make staff meetings at Anchor Beach extra awkward). I loved the nod to the fact that Lena is going to be touching Stef’s boobs. Lesbian sexuality without the male gaze is just so nice.

Of course, Jesus walks in while Lena has got her hands all over the art teacher’s boobs. Lena yells, “It’s a medical thing! For mom!” Call it what you like, darling. I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.

Mariana tells Nick that cheating on Mat was a big mistake, and she regrets it. He asks her to promise that if she stops being into him that she will just tell him. He can take it and it’s better than being cheated on.
