Tonight’s (May 3) episode of Ugly Betty is called “Secretaries Day.”
The official description at ABC reads: “Betty struggles to come up with the cash to solve the latest Suarez family dilemma, all while planning Mode’s big assistants week bash at a medieval themed restaurant, a place with an unlikely link to Amanda’s past. Meanwhile, Daniel tries to heed Betty’s advice about his sexual addiction issues; Alexis considers Rodrigo’s offer (guest star Cristian de la Fuente); Hilda faces a tough cosmetology school exam, and Wilhelmina becomes even bolder in her plans for total Mode domination.”
Read on to find out about the final two episodes this season! Beware of spoilers.
In next week’s May 10 episode, called “A Tree Grows in Guadalajara,” the Suarez family goes to Mexico so Betty’s father Ignacio can try to get a US visa, in his continuing quest to become a legal American citizen. While they’re there, the family members learn about their true family history. Kristin Chenowith, Rebecca Gayheart and Rita Moreno guest star.
May 17 brings us to the season finale, “East Side Story,” which promises to reveal secrets, and is rumoured to be a “musical” episode. According to TV.com, “Betty and Henry’s romance heats up. Meanwhile, Wilhelmina makes great strides in her ambitious power play, as Daniel descends further in a downward spiral. The Suarez family trip to Mexico takes a dangerous turn, with old ghosts creating new problems. Explosive secrets will be revealed, and everything will be tied together by a beloved Broadway musical.”
Also in the season finale, Kristin Chenowith guest stars again as Betty’s orthodontic technician. Angélica Vale of the Mexican telenovela La Fea Más Bella (another remake of the Colombian “Yo Soy Betty La Fea,” the original inspiration for Ugly Betty) also guest stars, as the assistant to Chenowith’s character.
EOnline’s Kristin Veitch says that she’s “heard someone is going to die” in the season finale of Ugly Betty, “and it is someone who is a part of Betty’s family. Get ready to weep!” However, in their usual manner, there’s apparently going to be “a loophole” where they can bring the character back.
In fact, pretty much everyone will be back; ABC has renewed Ugly Betty for a second season.
