Benjamin Bratt is returning to Modern Family as Manny’s father and Gloria’s ex, Javier in an episode the cast will be taping sometime in November.
Now we have some development on how Javier’s comeback episode will impact Jay and Manny’s growing father-son relationship, via co-creator Christopher Lloyd:
“Jay finds it perplexing that he’s become so possessive of Manny. Also, he is practically envious of Javier and the way he is able to control Manny. He has always believed that he sacrificed Manny in order to get Gloria; however he is now seeing himself as his real father and needing to show him the way to go.”
I just love these latest scenes between Jay and Manny, who else is looking forward to seeing Benjamin Bratt’s character, Javier on the show again?
