One of my favourite shows of all time without question
This summer, i decided to rewatch the whole show before watching the season 5 finale, where cam and mitch finally get married
And i just watched it, and i repeated the ending literally 12 times.
I feel like the cast is a family to me, and i wish they were. They’re so close, they see each other on a very regular basis
No matter what comes between them, no matter who fights over what, in the end they all come together.
At the end of the episode after the couple exhausts all possible venue options, Jay, Mitchells father books them a spot at his country club, a spot mitch said earlier in the episode might be reserved for claire
When mitch sees his father, he tells him that he should go to his seat because the ceremony was about to begin.
Jay says he thinks hed rather go for a walk, and he begins walking his son down the aisle.
I lost it. I was already sobbing.
Then Barb and Merl, cams parents join in to walk cam down, and gloria joins jay walking mitch down.
I hope one day i can get married and have a perfect wedding ceremony like mitch and cam
With my family there to support us wholeheartedly
Without prejudice, without judgment
Without tolerance, without acceptance, without approval.
I guess what hits me so hard is that this could be my future, even though the road seems treacherous and bumpy, filled with conflict and disagreement.
Jay puts his skepticism aside when he realizes that his son being gay truly shouldnt change the way he feels about or treats him, because he’s family, because he’s his child.
I want to be walked down the aisle with my moms arm in mine, and at the end i want to see that flowery arch and the man of my dreams waiting to embark on a lifelong journey with me.
I’m thinking, “this cant be, my entire family is catholic and traditional and staunch and full of bigotry”
If mitch had stayed together with that mindset, he wouldnt have gotten married.
People -can- change and one day, im going to prove it. My uncle doesnt have to say a word, my mom thinks of being gay as a character flaw, and my cousin throws around gay slurs like a baseball
But one day, im going to stand with a ring in one hand and my husbands hand in the other, and marry.
Thank you modern family, for giving me hope
