at . Comments

As previously reported, Lauren Velez, who portrays Lt. Maria Laguerta on Dexter, will guest star on Ugly Betty later this season.

While details on the multi-episode role are sparse, we can report Velez will play Elena, a nurse that enters the lives of the Suarez family. Mysteriously, the character will be tied to a story line twist that might involve the death of a significant character.

So... whose nurse do you think she'll be? Which character might be kicking the proverbial bucket? And could the answers to those two questions be the same individual?

Ugly Betty Quotes

Snow is a magical blanket, it hides what's ugly and makes everything beautiful


I've had to say good-bye more times than I may have like, but everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we have to do it - even if it's for the greater good, it still stings. And although we will never forget what we've given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward. What we can't do is live our lives afraid of the next good-bye because chances are they are not going to stop. The trick is to recognize when a good-bye can be a good thing - when it's a chance to start again.
