Exploring the art of storytelling.

Fights and Flights (SPOILERS)


I thought it was funny that as soon as Manny got in trouble, Jay immediately blamed Gloria.  “This whole thing was your mother’s idea,” he said.  The ending of the episode was just the icing on the cake.  Jay may make the money, but Gloria is the brains of the operation.  She is the ringleader as much as Jay and Manny would like to think otherwise.

Am I the only one who got my hopes up when Sal left her son at Mitch and Cam’s house?  I know it’s cruel, but the thought of Mitch and Cam having another child got me really excited.  The writers got our hopes up a few seasons back when the characters had initially discussed another adoption.  I want more “Modern Family” babies!

The title of this episode was “Fight or Flight.”  It described Claire and Phil’s plane flight, Sal’s flight from her son, and Manny’s fight with a bully.  The storylines didn’t really tie together other than the loose interpretation of the title.  It was a random episode.
