Monte Porter, The Fosters
Monte Porter (Annika Marks)
Monte Porter joined family drama The Fosters in 2×10 as the new principal of the Anchor Beach Community Charter School. She was newly divorced from her ex-husband after suffering a miscarriage, and during the season she became close friends with main character Lena. At one point, she alluded that she was open to the possibility of trying to date women since all her experiences with men had been bad. In the second season finale, she ended up kissing Lena after consoling her. However, Lena, who was married to Stef, was surprised by the kiss and broke it off after a few seconds.
At the start of Season 3, Lena and Monte came to the conclusion that the kiss didn’t mean anything and continued to be friends. Monte eventually started dating Lena and Stef’s close friend Jenna; however their relationship was short-lived as Monte confessed to being in love with Lena. She realized that Lena didn’t feel the same way and stated that she would never want to break up a marriage.
