‘Modern Family' Season 11: From Jay’s collective to Mitch on stage, finale stills will tug at your heartstrings
The countdown for ‘Modern Family’ Season 11 finale has begun and the decade-old hit sitcom continues to tease us an ending that would be remembered for years to come. The current and last season has already given us a taste of everything big that’s to unfold by writing off Frank Dunphy, Phil Dunphy’s (Ty Burrell) goofball of a father.
On Sunday, ‘Modern Family’ fans were shocked to learn about the demise of television’s favorite French Bulldog Beatrice, who entertained us as Stella since Season 4. And now, a few stills from the finale episode showcase moments that are bound to tug at your heartstrings, besides giving a glimpse of what awaits us in the final episode, that would conclude an era on television.
One of the pictures from the first look, that are obtained by Entertainment Weekly, sees the Delgado-Pritchett family standing around a weird-looking doll, which resembles a waiter. It seems like Jay Pritchett (Ed O’ Neill) has yet again used a chunk of his wealth on one of his collectives, which clearly isn’t going so well with Gloria Delagado (Sofia Vergara), thanks to uncompromising facial expressions.
Meanwhile, in another still Luke (Nolan Gould), Alex (Ariel Winter) and Haley Dunphy (Sarah Hyland) are seen indulging in some wholesome sibling moment. What could have served the finale better than this? For it has been so long since the trio appeared on the screen together.
In another heartwarming moment, Mitchell Pritchett (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) is seen sharing the stage with Cameron Tucker (Eric Stonestreet). Had Cam got the job in Mussoorie, the Tucker-Pritchett family would have embarked on a new journey. It seems like Mitch, who for over a decade was shy to perform with his vivacious partner, finally hops on the stage, making Cam’s dreams come true.
What caught our attention the most was the picture in which Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) is seen hugging Phil wearing a sad emotion on her face as the latter wanly looks at his wife. Is the couple experiencing the empty nest syndrome as their children are now grown up and ready to figure life on their own?
If that happens to be true, we wonder where it leaves the Dunphy kids.
‘Modern Family’ Season 11 Episode 15 airs on March 18 on ABC.
