'The Fosters' Season 3 Finale Recap: Everyone Says I Love You
Last night, The Fosters ended season 3 A. This finale chose to end many lingering storylines, which made it feel more like a series finale. Usually, The Fosters uses the final episodes of the seasons to leave the fans wanting more with cliffhangers. Last night, it was all about resolutions.

For better or worse, The Fosters decided to firmly choose certain roads. We will have to wait until 2016 to see where these roads lead.
