THE FOSTERS INVITE LEXI'S RELIGIOUS PARENTS TO DINNER IN A NEW EPISODE OF "THE FOSTERS," MONDAY, JULY 8TH, AT 9:00PM ET/PT ON ABC FAMILY

Carlos Sanz ("Crank"), Justina Machado ("Private Practice") and Sam McMurray ("Scandal") Guest Star

Burbank, CA - (June 18, 2013) - Stef and Lena invite Lexi Rivera's very protective, Catholic parents to dinner in the episode titled "Saturday," airing Monday, July 8th at 9:00pm ET/PT on ABC Family.

The Fosters invite Ernesto (played by Carlos Sanz) and Sofia Rivera (played by Justina Machado) to dinner, and Stef worries that they will subjugate Jesus to views that disapprove of his non-traditional family. To make matters worse, Stef's conservative father, Frank (played by Sam McMurray), shows up and the family dinner threatens to turn into an all-out moral debate. Meanwhile, Callie attends a group therapy session for foster children and meets someone with a connection to her past - a past that will come back to haunt her. Wyatt holds a destructive party at his childhood home, which is under foreclosure, and Callie realizes he's much more hurt than he lets on. Mike shows up late to take Brandon to an important audition with a renowned piano teacher. Norman Buckley directed the episode written by Marissa Jo Cerar.
