‘Modern Family’ Season 11 Episode 15 sees Dunphy, Tucker households heading toward new beginnings
‘Modern Family’ Season 11 returned on Wednesday, March 18, with Episode 15 ‘Baby Steps’ after a month-long break. As the show is nearing its end with only three episodes left until it bids final goodbye, the creators have managed to grab our attention with yet another interesting episode, which sees the members of the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker family inch towards a fresh start.
As seen in the previous episode, Cameron Tucker (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) have 24 hours to decide if they want to adopt a baby boy after receiving an unexpected call from the adoption agency.
In ‘Baby Steps’, they are seen laying down all their options, as they comprehend the pros and cons of adopting another baby. However, it seems like the couple is using the opportunity to validate their own parenting skills, considering how Lily Tucker Pritchett turned out to be.
When they enlist Gloria Delgado Pritchett’s (Sofia Vergara) help, she tries benefitting from their vulnerability by trying to sell them a house as a part of her real estate deal. Meanwhile, Lily, who always despised siblings, is now pushing her parents to adopt another child in order to distract them away from her life.
At the Dunphy household, Jay Pritchett (Ed O' Neill) and Phil Dunphy continue to bicker over silliest of things as usual while Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) has her legs stuck between the stairs only minutes before the interview for her new job.
She returns in top form in ‘Baby Steps’ after a long time of self-doubting and self-loathing as Claire has decided to channel her anxiety into a career.
The latest episode is a testament to Claire’s determination, who despite all the inconvenience caused by Phil and Jay’s mishap, goes ahead to take the interview call for her new job with Audrey Bickman.
In ‘Baby Steps’, we also got to see Alex (Ariel Winter) and Haley Dunphy (Sarah Hyland) have each other’s back as grown-up women. The developments in their respective story arc are indicative of the bright future that awaits them.
‘Baby Steps’ offered us the series’ usual comical chops, while retaining the exact right amount of emotions that tug at the heartstrings of the viewers.
‘Modern Family’ airs on Wednesdays on ABC.
