When Cam and Mitchell got the call that the baby they've been waiting for was arriving in a California border town, it looked like great news for the couple on Wednesday night's "Modern Family" season finale.
Gloria - this week's MVP - accompanied them on the trip as a translator.
Once they arrived at the hospital, the telenovela fans found a real life telenovela taking place before their eyes. After the drama played out, the grandmother announced that she was going to take care of the child.
With Cam and Mitchell away, it was up to Jay and Manny to watch Lily during her dance recital. When the kid came down with a case of stage fright, Jay hesitantly joined her on stage to walk her through the routine. (Altogether now: Awww!)
While this was happening, Haley announced to her parents that she planned to move in with Dylan (actually, this being typical Dylan, he spilled the beans early).
Dylan explained, "I know that you're concerned, but I'm designing T-shirts now. They're gonna be huge. Also medium and small."
Luke, who it turns out hoards mail, showed Dylan a college acceptance letter: Haley won't be living with Dylan after all (though one assumes she'll still spend a lot of time at home).
And in a plotline that frankly has already been done on "The Middle," Alex's prom date turned out to be "pre-gay." In this case, though, Alex is smart enough to realize this, referring to herself as his "beard... his pre-beard... his stubble."
When we got back to Cam, Mitchell and Gloria, she was purchasing a pregnancy test while they stopped for gas. Yep, it's a good thing Jay got some practice watching Lily, because he's got another little one on the way!
