I understand that she was in a bind and felt desperate, but she basically said, she gave up sooo much. So basically she’s been lying all season. Lying about loving Wyatt, lying about being over Brandon, lying in general. It makes her a whole lot less likeable. I am not cheering for her to become an Adams Foster. I don’t really care. I thought she wanted a family, but she wants the boy. Enjoy!
I in no way think she was lying when she told Wyatt she loved him. If she was going to blatantly lie, she wouldn’t have restled over it so much. I find it odd that people seem to think it’s impossible to love more than one person at a time. I never believed she was over Brandon (blah), but when she told Wyatt in 1x21 that Brandon is out of the question, I also don’t think she was lying, because she WANTED to believe that the adoption would eventually go through.
But yes, the ‘I gave up so much’ line really made me cringe. Actually, I yelled ‘ARRRRRGHHHH!!!!!’
As a viewer, I want the writers to acknowledge that family is more important than a teenage boyfriend. Especially now that they have created such an attachment between Stef and Callie, Callie and Mariana. Yet deep down I know they are trying to show Callie’s actions from a ‘teens’ POV, I just don’t like it one bit.
I always seem to end up liking shows with a lot of teen romance. Which is weird, because I am NEVER interested in that aspect. I got into The Fosters to follow Callie’s own personal journey. Brallie is tarnishing that majorly, but I think I’ll always have an interest in her characters storyline, along with Stef and Lena, Jude, and Mariana.
