After a short week-long break, Modern Family
returns to our screens with "Queer Eyes, Full Hearts."
This episode began with Mitch and Cam at a Clean Water charity event where they met Ann Gibbs, a television reporter who Mitch loves and wanted to take the opportunity to promote his most recent case: homeless people who have been employed by a corporation, but only pay slave wages. It was not long though before she became a lot more interested in Cam, seeing a more successful story running on the openly gay football coach on a winning streak. It's common knowledge that Cam loves the spotlight, so when presented with an opportunity, he pounces, pushing Mitch to the side and unintentionally portraying him as the wife. Cam sees the error of his ways, though, realizing he needs to support his husband when he goes to Mitch's court case, makes an awful lot of noise, and subsequently promotes him in his interview rather than himself.
Another adorable couple moment happened in the Pritchett home, when Gloria pushes Manny towards learning Spanish instead of French, and hires him an attractive tutor named Diego, played by Nicholas Gonzalez. Jay becomes jealous as Gloria talks to Diego in Spanish, so signs Manny's form transferring him to a French class. Naturally, going behind Gloria's back hurts her, especially as she feels stupid for not always knowing the appropriate English words. Jay rehires Diego, but for himself rather than Manny, and expresses for the first time how much he loves Gloria in her native tongue, much to her delight.
Over at the Dunphy's, Claire was becoming increasingly concerned with Haley's ability to do absolutely nothing all day and her lack of future prospects, whereas Phil was worried that Alex was not sleeping so she could have more revision time. Andy was back as well, spending hours down in the basement with Haley, which was completely innocent job interview practice, despite Haley telling Claire "it's only casual sex." It turns out though that Andy is still dating Beth and, with his new job outside of the 'Manny' field of work, hopes to buy her an engagement ring. Haley had managed to score an interview with a celebrity stylist, which with some Dunphy Determination and critical comments on the receptionists clothes, she managed to succeed.
Overall, in my opinion, it was a nice little episode that tackled 'The Cam Show" effectively and showed some great character development in the cases of Jay and Haley. What did you think? Leave your opinions in the comments below!
