Mitchell and Cam ache an acceptance setback, Haley makesa acclaimed activity best and Gloria makes a big reveal.
“WHOA.” That’s the argument I got from my aide Michelle Profis afterwards aftermost night’s affliction baby revelation. Earlier on Wednesday,we had accommodated ourselves to accepting that the division afterpiece of Modern Family would be about unshocking, as the Cameron/Mitchell acceptance storyline has been continued outall division continued and would about absolutely be resolved. We couldn’t brainstorm a bearings in which admirers didn’t accommodated their additional baby, but that’s absolutely not what happened aftermost night. As addition adverse development impeded the Pritchett-Tuckers on their way to acceptable a four some, we got a altered — and actual abrupt — revelation: Gloria’s pregnant!
The babyish astronomic ball started back Cam and Mitchell got the buzz alarm that beatific them scurrying off appear Calexico ( let me get that started for you ) to get their bairn baby. Lily– actuality the beggared atramentous swan that she is — had an important ballet recital, which the dads handed off to Jay, Manny and Gloria. A additional buzz call, this time from the mother’s Spanish-speaking sister (named Juanita, whom you’ll charge to apperceive for later), fabricated it bright that the boys would charge Gloria to appear forth for the ride to act as translator at the hospital. You know, aloof in case annihilation accidental came up.
As the leash entered the hospital, I couldn’t be the alone one who squealed back I accomplished absolutely area Modern Family was about to booty this. As anon as a Spanish-speaking priest emerged from the commitment allowance with a admonishing — in Spanish — for Spanish-speaking sister Juanita, the telenovela was on! Cam and Mitchell looked on in abashing asGloria attempted to broadcast the action unfolding. In comes a nurse! Wearing no clothes! And she slaps Juanita! Because she told the baby’s mother’s mother about the baby! And now there’sa ranch hand! ¡Que scandale!
For a brief moment, Cam and Mitchell basked in the news that their baby was the center of a real-life Univision soap opera. Until the final development, whichcame as a total devastation to Cam, Mitchell and us the viewers. The baby’s abuela came out of the delivery room, did a little yelling and dropped the bomb that she was not going to give Cam and Mitchell the baby. Outside the hospital, Cam and Mitchell broke down.
The sadness continued during a stop for gas. As Gloria ran inside to get something for her apparent motion sickness, Cam grew frustrated with the gas pump while Mitchell took off for the highlands. Cam ran after Mitchell, who finally broke down about their most recent failure to adopt another baby.
Mitchell was tired of the rejection and the pain, which is certainly understandable — and the reason why Cam suggested theytake a break from the plan. An odd parting shot for the season,seeing Cam and Mitchell both laying down in the grass, staringaimlessly at the sky. Does that mean we won’t be seeing any new baby in season 4? Not without watching it pop out of Gloria, who revealed in the closing moments that her motionsickness was actually an old-fashioned pregnancy memorandum.
Hormonal Gloria, here we come! (But, really now, what does Gloria’s good news mean for Cam and Mitchell’s bad news? If you’re hoping that Cam and Mitchell might raise the baby, remember that Gloria’s spawn is Mitchell’s own step half-brother, so count that option out.)
