Spoilers ahead! Don’t read if you haven’t watched the latest episode of Modern Family.

Modern Family killed off Frank Dunphy (Fred Willard), the father of Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) on last night’s episode – but one cast member wasn’t made aware of the death until she saw it on TV!

“So, I don’t read scripts of episodes of Modern Family that I’m not in, so I just found out that my grandpa’s dead along with all of you,” Sarah Hyland posted on Instagram.

She added, “I guess I should’ve put a spoiler alert for Grandpa Frank dying, but I was just caught off guard.”

“Like, as his granddaughter, you think I’d be invited to his funeral,” Sarah told her followers. “If it’s any consolation to those who are angry about the spoiler alert, karma hit real fast and Boo just farted in my face and the smell was so bad she had to get off the bed because she couldn’t handle the heat.”

This is not the first time a major character was killed off of the show.

Spoiler alert! Don’t continue reading if you haven’t watched the latest episode of Modern Family

A recurring character was killed off of the January 15 episode of Modern Family. The audience said goodbye to Frank, played by Fred Willard. Frank is the father of Phil Dunphy (played by Ty Burrell).

In the episode, Phil goes to check in on his dad, who was found wandering around a supermarket for hours.

Later, you hear a voiceover from Phil.

“When I was growing up, he was the cool dad,” Phil said. “He was hip. He knew all the dances from Grease [and] he knew all the expressions — BFF: Best Friends Forever, TMI: Too Much Information, BJ: Blue Jeans.”

“We didn’t do much that [last] day, but it might have been one of the best days I’ve ever had with my dad. I just didn’t know it would be the last.” You then realize that Phil is giving a eulogy, and that his father passed. “Don’t miss a chance to let the people you appreciate know that,” he added.

The character of Frank appeared in 14 total Modern Family episodes over the years. This is the show’s final season.

This is not the first time a Modern Family character was killed off.
