Daphne begins working at a free clinic as part of her probation from the Senator Coto blackmail scandal, and Bay takes an art class at a local college. Toby tries to unite a divided Carlton by coaching girls' field hockey, and the parents face the specter of the impending empty nest in unexpected ways. RJ Mitte ("Breaking Bad"), Max Adler ("Glee"), Sandra Bernhard ("Roseanne"), and Alec Mapa ("Ugly Betty") will guest star in the premiere episode and recur throughout the season.

The repercussions of Callie's decision to run away impact every member of the Foster family, including newlyweds Stef and Lena, who had offered to adopt the troubled teen. Will Jude be able to accept the love of this family without his sister in the picture? And how will Brandon deal with the news that Callie has run away? Meanwhile, Jesus and Mariana prepare for the reality of Lexi leaving. Mike and Stef continue to deal with the fallout of the shooting, while Lena must come to terms with Stef returning to the force, post-shooting. How will Stef and Lena navigate all this chaos and change as a married couple? The winter season will also include Rosie O'Donnell in a recurring role as Rita Hendricks, a tough yet compassionate woman who works in the foster care system.
