Modern Family: Nathan Fillion returns

And what Phil thinks is happening is not happening

Posted on


Nathan Fillion is ready to Shine again: Cheesy-breezy weatherman Rainer Shine returns to Modern Family tonight, and he has a big question for Phil (Ty Burrell). Let’s just say that involves an amazing villa in Cabo and a special someone. Let’s also say that Phil thinks he is that special someone when it is, in fact, Phil’s daugher Haley (Sarah Hyland), who is dating Rainer. And because we’re already saying things, let’s note that Rainer’s joke about a nude beach is a bit hard for Phil to grin and bear.

If you can get over the age difference, check out this ciip from the episode, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
