It's Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) against the Anchor Beach Board of Directors when The Fosters returns this summer and Lena (Sherri Saum) is stuck right in the middle.

"I need to keep my job, girl! I need to keep this civil and it's getting heated," Saum tells us. "It's going to get worse before it gets better."
