Ugly Betty Review: "Back In Her Place"
We love Betty and Matt together. So on this week's installment, "Back In Her Place" we were naturally quite saddened by Matt's decision to leave town and head to Africa.
Sure! Saving lives and helping the planet is wonderful and great food for the soul - blah blah blah - and I suppose it was never definite that he would be out of her life for good, but yes, this was a very sad one for us. Our only hope now is for Betty and Daniel to finally hook it up! (Preview wise, how weird is it that Wilhelmina and Daniel might lock lips!?)
The overall episode was very uniting. Everything kind of had a meaning. And one common theme was making you walk a mile in someone else's shoes. Obviously, the most hilariouspart was seeing Betty be torchered by Wilhelmina's antics. Everyone loves a good torcher fest now and then, right? Or our we a little bit too S&M?
Either way, the episode really was about the heart having to say good-bye. One part we really had trouble with understanding is why Connor had to let Wilhelmina go? I agreed with Wilhelmina that if he really loved her then why wouldn't he just do what she made her happy? Would it really have been that difficult to carry on the way they have been?
So, all in all, the episode was very sad for us to watch. The one silver lining throughout it had to be Bobby. Wow! What a hunk of beef turned awesome man he is! He really came through and made us believe that he will not only be a good parent, but perhaps the lobster Hilda has always searched for!
There were some great Ugly Betty quotes from last night, but there was one that really tied up the episode and had great meaning for us. Because it was so great, we leave you with just this one.
Betty: I've had to say good-bye more times than I may have liked, 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. | permalink
