White Christmas - S07E09
16 December 2018 | by rganSee all my reviews

Continuing the recent trend of strong episodes, this Christmas-themed episode centred around a log cabin brings the gang together for fun moments and revelations such as the climax of the Haley-Andy relationship and Jay's big announcement. While the ending to one of these stories whimps out at the last second, the rest of the run time is an absolute riot with all characters in fine form. But it's not just the main characters as the supporting acts also bring their A-game as DeVine is a perfect accompaniment to Phil's out of context lines as well as Andrea Martin's unfiltered Fig and lastly Laura Ashley Samuels' Final outing as Beth. As far as Christmas-themed episodes go, "White Christmas" is one of the strongest, not just for Modern Family but in general; the big twists that impact characters' lives, moments of utter hilarity as well as the homage to The Shining. Another strong outing for the show.
