    The Last Halloween

    When an episode is titled "The Last Halloween," it begins to hit home that we're really coming to the end of the road with the various members of the Pritchett family.

    Halloween has always been special on this long-running ABC hit, so high expectations set the tone for Modern Family Season 11 Episode 5.

    Claire and Phil were up to their old tricks, but the surprise of the installment was that it almost got as melancholy as we feel knowing the end is near.

    But before we get to the sweeter side of "The Last Halloween," it wouldn't have been a costumed holiday if Phil and Claire weren't trying to one-up each other.

    Oh, who am I kidding? Is there any holiday that doesn't evoke their competitive sides?

    We Need To Talk About Lily

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 14, I didn't know where they were going with the whole Lily angle.

    Was she gay? Trans? Did she want to live with whoever is secretly raising her 85% of the time?

    No. Nothing quite that life-changing.

    She doesn't like show tunes or tween stuff or Beyonce -- she loves death metal.

    How Mitch and Cam never heard that noise permeating from her headphones, I'll never know, but that's it. No big deal.

    No problem. Do you want to look in another neighborhood or stay right here in HELL!

    Phil
    • Permalink: No problem. Do you want to look in another neighborhood or stay right here in HELL!

    I have to admit that it's nice to find out something about Lily.

    Ever since she was a baby, Mitch and Cam have molded her into what they think she should be.

    Whanex?

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 13, they shook up the cast a bit, and it seemed to work better than when they pair the characters up all proper-like.

    Jay was with Claire, Phil was with Gloria, and Cam was with the Dunphy kids -- plus Manny.

    I have to say, Mitch and Cam were tolerable. Hallelujah!

    Even though Mitch gave Cam lousy advice, and he took it, at least they were on the same side for once.

    No deception, no lies. Oh, happy day. I know this type of behavior between the two of them won't last, so let's just revel in it for a moment. Shall we?

    Dad, are you still looking for a place to leave that butt? It's so gross.

    Blasts From the Past

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 12, there's life in the house again.

    The Dunphy house hasn't been brimming with this much action in a long time. Sure, there's been drama here and there, but the constant madness has been part of what's missing.

    These twins might just breathe life back into Modern Family. In the Dunphy house, anyway.

    We're still knee-deep in conflict with Jay and Gloria. Why is it that it feels like it's always Gloria and Manny against Jay? I can't be the only one who's put off by that.

    It used to be that Gloria was proud of Jay and supported him. Yes, she had an oddly close relationship with Manny that was borderline creepy. But, she still had a loving relationship with Jay.

    Stuck in a Moment

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 10, the Dunphys and the Pritchetts sent us off for winter break with a laugh.

    That was one of the better episodes of late, and it was a welcome change from nearly the entire season.

    We followed Dylan and Haley as they tried to figure out the perfect time to tell Phil and Claire about the baby. When they finally did, it seemed like Phil took it harder than Claire.

    That was a shock.

    Phil's so Phil; I would've thought he would've been super excited, especially because he's always been a huge Dylan fan.

    He's not one of those over-protective father types who stomps around telling all the guys to stay away from their daughters.

    We have an announcement. Dylan and I are having a baby.

    Putting Down Roots

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 9, DeDe's widower, Jerry, brings the last of her belongings to her family.

    I'm glad they didn't just forget about DeDe and let her death hang.

    It was confusing, though, why Jay was so eager to get rid of him. Jealous?

    Jerry's a nice enough guy, and Jay got along with DeDe just fine, so why would he have such a problem with helping Jerry out through this tough time?

    I suppose they were bootlegging on the storyline of Jay turning off the hot water to freeze Gloria's family out.

    Let's get real. If Gloria says one cousin is going to stay for a night, that's what it should be. Granted, Jay could bring up the issue to Gloria and address the problem straight-on, but thinking more about it, he really couldn't.

    She's so damn hot-headed, she would've ripped his head off.

    Hey, what was all that squeaking in the garage? Are the raccoons back? Damn it!

    Kids These Days

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 8, sex is the subject matter, as is political correctness.

    It might've been funny if it weren't so sadly true.

    Usually, I'm okay with comedies taking real life and weaving it in such a way where it's funny. Where else are they going to get their material?

    But this wasn't one of those times.

    The political correctness was almost to the point of nausea, and I didn't think any of it was funny. Well, except for Jay's line in the locker room.

    I've admired you for a long time and if I haven't let you know that, that's on me. And I'm cissy-gendered enough to admit it.

    Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 7, Alex steps up on her high horse and looks down on her family. This time Luke joins her.

    By the end, she realized her family made her who she is today.

    But that's not the big shock of the night, and I don't think I like where this is going.

    It's unclear how much time has passed since Haley and Arvin broke up. Maybe a couple of months.

    We went from the 4th of July to Halloween to the current day, but we haven't hit Thanksgiving yet, so, yeah, a few months.

    Haley is pregnant, and although I'm sure she and Dylan have been doing it like bunnies, I hope we're not in for a game of "Who's the Daddy?"!

    I love it that you're smart now.

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 6, Phil's on a mission to save his class. When he turns on the charm, he dials it up too far, attracting some young attention.

    It appears that Phil misunderstands Paige's attention. She's Luke's girlfriend!!

    Or maybe Phil doesn't misunderstand at all. What's going on with Paige?

    "On the Same Paige" revolves around misunderstandings. 

    It wasn't surprising to find out that Luke's girlfriend was using him to get to Phil. It WAS surprising that Luke wasn't upset.

    When Paige threw herself at Phil, Luke didn't seem all that surprised. He didn't seem to care at all.

    Good Grief

    On Modern Family Season 10 Episode 5, a family member dies, and each family member has their way of dealing with the loss.

    For as long as I can remember, Halloween has been Claire's favorite holiday. She goes over and above on costumes and decor with her sole purpose to scare the pants off of everyone.

    It's the one night she's not serious and uptight. The one night for her to let loose, have fun and thrive.

    So, what happens? They kill her mother.

    Halloween, of all nights.

    The timing choice coupled with the fact that Claire was always at odds with Dede makes the impact even worse.
