“Ugly Betty” remains one of my favorite characters on ABC.
Along with Wilhemina, Daniel, Amanda, Mark, Hilda, Justin, Ignatio and Claire. The themes Betty inspires – being a good person, maybe a little too nice, a little too naïve, a little too giving – fill in this season.
Betty is on the move and growing and changing – just a little! We wouldn’t want her to change too much. She has her own new apartment. She tries for and gets a place in YETI – Young Editor Training Institute – with a mentor. She roommates with Amanda who has no place to go.
Every adventure is changing Betty and making her grow up. She watches Daniel grow, sees Alexis leave the company, and deals with situations in a more balanced way. Daniel and Wilhemina are now co-owners and have a new CFO – and they have all blended in a mature way that could have never happened last season. And Wilhemina, with Claire as surrogate mom, is having a son and hopes she will be a good mom! The immense popularity of Ugly Betty has always been about decency, a close family, and persistence in what you want. And the show has evolved to allow all characters to grow and change.
Betty and cast amuse us, throw us into despair, have us laughing out loud and being proud of her moments of triumph. Great show, great cast, great season.
