Modern Family Season 2 Recap: Little Slugger!
Modern Family Season 2 returned last night and here is a quick recap of the “Our Children, Ourselves” episode.
Modern Family returned last night with a brand new episode entitled “Our Children, Ourselves” in which we take a look at the Dunphy’s and how both Claire (Julie Bowen) and Phil (Ty Burrell) are holding their kids back.
Right off the bat we are in the Dunphy’s house as we kick off the Modern Family Season 2 return to TV. Both Claire and Phil are concerned with Alex’s (Ariel Winter) obsessive studying. Throughout the entire episode last night we will watch as they try and get Alex to be more active, outside of the books. When she gets 2nd place to a boy in her class on a quiz, she tells her parents that she is just doing the best with what she has been given; clearly calling them stupid.
For Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) last night’s episode was all about high school. It turns out that before Mitch turned homosexual, he experimented with ladies and then at a 10 year high school reunion, once he was officially gay, he attempted to go back straight and succeeded for the night. The kicker here is his lady friend, whom he had sex with makes an appearance. Mary Lynn Rausknub guest starred last night on Modern Family as Tracy, the ex-flame of Mitch. After a strange confrontation, Mitchell is alarmed when he sees Tracy off in the distance with a red-headed child. Immediately alarms go off and Mitchell thinks that at the 10 year reunion, when he slept with Tracy, he got her pregnant.
Over at Jay (Ed O’Neil) and Gloria’s (Sofia Vergara) trouble is a brewing. It turns out that Gloria invited a couple over to stay and Jay absolutely despises them. At dinner he lets them know that he can’t stand them only to learn that they will be spending the night. Once they return home, Gloria gets them to cancel their hotel plans when she tells them that Jay is getting so old, he has lost his mind.
Last night’s episode of Modern Family Season 2 ends with some rather hilarious moments. First off, Claire and Phil head to the movies to see Croctopus 3D only to run in to the parents of the kid one-upping Alex in school. Claire decides they will ditch the Croc movie to see a more sophisticated French film. Phil bails half way through it to see Crocotpus and Claire ends up passing out.
Cam and Mitchell call up Tracy and plan to meet her to discuss the child. I about died as they are sitting in the living room and they ask to meet Bobby. Out walks a short red-headed midget, who just so happens to be Tracy’s husband! They brought him a gift, thinking it was a child, in the form of a baseball mit that says “Little Slugger.”
All in all last night’s Modern Family was pretty great and I am glad that its back on the air. Tune in next week when it returns at 9|8c on ABC.
