The actress’ pretty and edgy “Hurricane Dani” is a real force of nature who acts first and thinks later and becomes the recovering alcoholic’s new squeeze.

Sokoloff — whose TV credits include guest spots on Melissa & Joey, CSI: NY and Desperate Housewives — will first appear in the Feb. 17 episode.

The Fosters returns for Season 1B on Jan. 13.
