Ugly is the new pretty: Ugly Betty the recap

"Girl I am black and you are Mexican. Let's not talk around it like a bunch of dull white people." Wilhemina Slater.

This show just keeps getting better and better. From Papa Suarez deciding to go across the border to Justin finally showing some sadness about his dad's unexpected death we went through all layers and back.

I'm sooo glad that Christina FINALLY told Henry the truth about Charlie and the baby! I was rolling on the couch when Amanda decided to dump the dog but I'm glad she came to her senses. And how much did we like Alexis with out makeup.

And of course, my heart broke for poor Justin when he saw where his dad died. And how awesome was Vanessa Williams this episode? Now on to the Betty goodness!

We start out with Betty causing chaos at a meeting at Mode. In Betty's clumsy fashion she reached out for food and bagels and everything were flying everywhere. Marc then points out that "Don't worry, no one really noticed." We then have the awkward reunion of Betty and Henry.

Amanda's looking for money and the only thing she gets from the late Fey Summer's estate is a mangy dog.

Justin has started his intern at Mode and surprise! He takes to it like a duck to water. Marc is thrilled because he now has a real life understudy. Daniel and Papa Mede are trying to take care of Alexis and they decide by telling her little white lies and "rewriting" history.

Meanwhile, Willie's having an afternoon delight with a big, bad bodyguard (Played by her real life ex husband Rick Fox). Unfotunately Betty and Christina are stuck under her bed while this is going on because Betty decides to steal the Book so that Daniel could sign off on it.

After Willie discovers that Betty knows her secret she makes her a deal: Keep your mouth shut and your dad comes home. Tell and you're screwed.

Betty decides to keep quiet and feels extremely guilty, especially after Daniel tells her that she's the only person he can trust.

We end the episode with Papa Suarez getting kidnapped and Betty and a drunk on wine coolers Henry deciding whether or not they want to be together.

Episode grade A+
