Ugly Betty Recap: "The Born Identity"

by at . Comments

Last night's Ugly Betty marked the final episode for the lovely Ashley Jensen as a series regular on the show.  So how did they get rid of this actress that wanted out of her contract?

Well, Christina decided to act on her conviction that baby William was actually hers and not Wilhelmina's.  Her action?  Kidnapping, of course.

Stuart, Christina and Baby

So how was Betty going to help her best friend when she was clearly guilty of a crime?  Find out in our "The Born Identity" recap.

Now for some of our favorite Ugly Betty quotes from the episode:

Betty: Are you sure this is the best way to deal with your feelings?
Christina: Well I did consider throwing a dart at the real thing, but she's so damn fast in those heels | permalink
Wilhelmina [about Cal Hartley]: I hear he has a soft spot for kids. Apparently all his charities benefit "the children." So once he gets a glance at my little angel, he'll be putty in our hands. It's human nature if you put one in your arms and you turn into a grinning idiot. Like that [points to Daniel]
Marc: In Daniel's defense, he always looks like that | permalink

    I knew it couldn't be Willie's baby, and I'm glad they at least got that part right instead of trying to get for a really shocking twist. However, I really wish they would've found a way to keep Christina on the show...I thought she was a great character. I'm interested in seeing how they fill that void - I think Betty needs some sort of similar confidant...we'll see. The scene at the end was so beautiful, I'm really glad they used the song "Layers" by Asobi Seksu - this is the second week in a row where I thought they used a perfect song at the end to convey the emotion of the scene...definitely loosened up my tear ducts a bit.
