Will Cam and Mitch be pronounced husband and husband?
That's the big Q going into tonight's Modern Family, after months of DOMA-ruling-inspired speculation as to whether TV's highest-profile gay couple would make it official.
"We address gay marriage…We address it!," Julie Bowen slyly told us recently, knowing better than to give it all away.
And while we certainly don't want to spoil the whole outcome either, here's the scoop we can tell you:
And of course, we can't forget that oh-so-sneaky photo that Jesse Tyler Ferguson "leaked," which without question certainly looks like Mitch and Cam standing at a wedding altar. "It's not what it looks like. Or is it? Guess you'll have to wait to find out!" Plus, the ABC promo that promises, "Modern Family will change with just one word"… followed by several characters saying, "Yes!"
Sure sounds like wedding bells to us. How about you?
"To the extent that people are interested in what happens on the show and how they really take these characters to heart, it's a compliment," Lloyd said. "But if they want to campaign to influence how we deal with the characters, that starts to be intrusive. We resist that. The ACLU had their heart in right place, but there was a silliness to the whole thing. They don't exist, you know! They really are fiction."
"As you can imagine in Cam and Mitchell's life," Lloyd said, "they would be feeling that a door has opened that was closed to them. Wouldn't it be pretty tempting to think about walking through it? We imagine a lot of gay couples today are deciding whether to get married now that it's open to them. From our standpoint, that's something to explore."
Are you hoping for a Mitch and Cam wedidng?
