After enduring three weeks of repeat episodes, ABC is treating Ugly Betty
fans tonight with a new episode called “Zero Worship,” which we have already hinted about in a previous article. Next week, fans can look forward to yet another hilarious episode entitled “Odor in the Court,” which airs on January 17.
Read on for more Ugly Betty
spoilers of the 12th episode of the season.
“Odor in the Court” finds Claire Meade (Judith Light
) as she goes to trial for the murder of her late husband's mistress Fey Sommers. Hilarity ensues as something stinks in the courtroom: Betty's new perfume.
Betty's (America Ferrera
) new scent is driving Henry (Christopher Gorham
) wild and Betty crazy, literally, after she unknowingly starts to use a deadly perfume concocted by the late Fey Sommers and begins acting very strangely.
While Meade matriarch Claire goes on the stand for Fey's murder, a vindictive Amanda ( Becki Newton
) holds back vital information, and Wilhelmina (Vanessa L. Williams)
takes steps to become a member of the Meade clan.
Joining the cast and crew of Ugly Betty
on this episode are Alec Mapa and Barry Bostwick. Mapa, who guest stars as fashion reporter Suzuki St. Pierre, is a Filipino-American comedian who is noted for his role on Desperate Housewives
as Gabrielle's gay best friend Vern and has made history as the first Asian gay regular on a sitcom as Adam Benet on the comedy Half & Half.
As for Bostwick, he is slated to appear as attorney Roger Adams on Ugly Betty
. Bostwick is most famous for playing Brad Majors in the 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show
, as well as the mayor in the sitcom Spin City
So far, Ugly Betty
has three remaining filmed episodes, including tonight's "Zero Worship" and next week's “Odor in the Court.” The last episode called “A Thousand Words by Friday” is expected to air on January 24.
