Ugly Betty airs tonight with a new episode called “Odor in the Court” and as hinted in a previous spoiler article, the storyline has something to do with Betty's new perfume.  Meanwhile, fans will also be pleased to know that ABC will be airing another new episode next week that promises to induce yet another round of laughs.  So far, 11 out of the 13 produced episodes have already aired, which means that there are two episodes left to enjoy, including tonight's episode.

Read on for a preview of the last pre-strike episode of Ugly Betty.

“A Thousand Words by Friday,” the 13th episode of season 2 and what may be the last episode of the award-winning comedy this season, finds Betty as she gets an assignment she later on regrets.  Her task from Daniel is to interview Phil Roth.  Thinking it's a sit down with a great novelist, Betty enthusiastically takes on the job only to discover that Phil Roth is a writer who has penned a series of books about picking up women.

This episode also features Daniel as he hooks up with a sexy new lady named Renee, though he later on finds out that they have a shocking connection to each other, while Amanda and Marc cook up a plan to reach out to the man they believe is Amanda's real father in the form of Gene Simmons.

Ugly Betty stars America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, Eric Mabius as Daniel Meade, Tony Plana as Ignacio, Ana Ortiz as Hilda, Ashley Jensen as Christina, Becki Newton as Amanda, Mark Indelicato as Justin, Michael Urie as Marc, Judith Light as Claire Meade, Christopher Gorham as Henry, Rebecca Romijn as Alexis and Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater.

Joining the main ensemble in next week's episode are Gabrielle Union and Gene Simmons. Union, who guest stars as Renee, is known for her roles in Bring it On, Bad Boys II and Deliver Us from Eva, while Simmons, who appears as himself, is known for co-founding the rock band KISS and for his reality series, Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

Ugly Betty airs every Thursday at 8/7c on ABC.
