MODERN FAMILY – “Finale Part 1/Finale Part 2” – In part 1 of the series finale, Mitchell and Cam settle in on their new normal, and Phil and Claire decide that one of the kids needs to move out in order to take control of the house again. Meanwhile, as Gloria becomes more successful at work, she notices Jay, Manny and Joe don’t seem to need her as much. In part 2 of the series finale, the entire family discovers saying goodbye is much harder than it seems on “Modern Family,” WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (ABC/Eric McCandless)

Let’s talk about Wednesday night’s TV!

THE MASKED SINGER: It’s starting to get a little more difficult to pin down who should be voted out, but it feels like last night was the right outcome. (Sorry, Kangaroo.)

CHICAGO MED: Well, uh, maybe Will should take a break from dating colleagues? At least a little bit. Whether Hannah made the right decision or not—and, yes, she listened to what the patient wanted—his decisions

Not at all shocked that Maggie and Ben are now foster parents. It’ll be very interesting to see if this sticks, or if this ends up being another heartbreak.

Also not surprising that April and Ethan finally fractured. It wasn’t sustainable for Ethan and Crockett to continue coming to blows at work, and Ethan didn’t seem ready to get over his rage. (And it makes sense April kissing another man and keeping it quiet for months was a breaking point for them.)

MODERN FAMILY: I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from the finale—I wasn’t sure if they’d have some sort of twist to needlessly “explain” the documentary format, a la THE OFFICE—but I was really impressed they found a plausible way to get the entire cast essentially together for the final part. And, man, those final moments broke me a little, because, yeah, it’s very possible a lot of those emotions we saw on the cast’s face was their real feelings over the 11-season journey being over. And the photos at the end! Yes, 11 years is a lot no matter what, but when you look at it compared to how the kids have grown? It’s a lot to take in.

CHICAGO FIRE: I have very mixed feelings about the protest itself (absolutely just in theory, but if people had died…), but I loved how the show handled Cruz’s feelings about Otis being gone, and the little glimpse we got of the wedding.

But, uh, is Foster about to jump ship…?

[Want more? CHICAGO FIRE boss Derek Haas answered a few questions about the episode and teased what’s ahead.]

SEAL TEAM: I was really impressed with how Max Thieriot handled directing his first SEAL TEAM episode, especially given how much Sonny was going through in the hour.

The episode was obviously filmed considerably before the real-life quarantine, but seeing Bravo hanging around, waiting for something to happen made me wonder how they’d handle what’s going on in the world right now if it happened when they were deployed.

CHICAGO P.D.: Yikes, I was afraid it would be another situation where the kid of a rich family faked their own kidnapping, but instead it was so much more twisted. Truly, what a piece of trash father to not even admit to the affair if it would save his daughter’s life. (Obviously the dad should have admitted to the murder, too, but he didn’t even fake it to try and save his daughter’s life.)

I’m really glad the show isn’t just glossing over Burzek’s loss. Even if they weren’t totally a couple at that point, they were building a family together; they lost their child. And so much was thrown at them in the immediate aftermath that there wasn’t a whole lot of time for the two to process their grief together. (Also, poor Halstead.)
