Review - Modern Family Season 2 Episode 24 The One That Got Away

While "The One That Got Away" doesn't have the pomp of the graduation episode last week, it hits several striking, sweet notes and ends the season in a high note as expected. There are the jokes of misunderstanding along the way, but the episode is somewhere in the middle in terms of humor. What comes out in the end, though, to elevate the episode higher than a normal one is how it brings everyone's experiences together. Instead of being grumpy, Jay decides to be happy for what there is. After playing catch with Manny, Cam realizes he wants a son. Phil tells Claire how much she means to him after meeting his old rival. Those moments all come through with enough force and really grabbed me.

Score: 9.0/10
