“We do deal with a death, which is certainly a topic that families have to deal with, and on television, it’s not easy to do because that’s a heavy subject,” Lloyd told Entertainment Weekly last month. “But at the same time, it would seem unusual for a family not to go through it.”

Winter, who plays teen Alex Dunphy on the sitcom, said, “We haven’t ever really had a death on the show.”

“It definitely impacts the family, as I think it impacts any family,” she said. “Some people have never dealt with death, or if it’s a person close to them, they’re having to deal with them because it’s a tragedy. You follow people’s stories on how they do that, and I think some people obviously take it better than others.”
