Ugly Betty Review: "Smokin' Hot"

at . Comments

Fashion Week happens to be one of my favorite weeks!

Last night, Ugly Betty showed us what it would be like to be in the thick of it all from the standpoint of anyone at Mode.

On the catwalk

In "Smokin' Hot", Betty finally gets to cover a fashion show and ends up finding a great designer, Marissa. Why is it that after all these years, she still has such a hard time standing up for herself?

It was really nice to see Wilhelmina relate to Betty and even compliment her! We were really surprised by that one!

As much fun as it has been to have Helen guest star on the show, we are glad to see her ship has sailed. We find her character to be overly annoying. But, she did bring out a good side in Amanda.

I think this episode primarily meant the most for Amanda. She even said so herself - everyone else is moving up and on and she has been stuck. Finally realizing her potential as a stylist is awesome! Hopefully, we will see more of her work in the future. Rachel Zoe better watch out!

My biggest disappointment had to be Claire. Why did she give up her child? And after all this time, why is it so difficult for her to tell Daniel he has a brother? What kind of mom is she? Ugh. I guess we just have to wait and see how this storyline plays out...our only hope is that she gets what she deserves!

Oh! And how incredibly hot is Claire's illegitimate son!? Just saying...

Lastly, we gotta talk about the mysterious fire. We were absolutely sure that Bobby was the one to start the fire - especially having Hilda complain to him about her salon. Who would have guessed that Justin would do such a dumb thing?!

Here are a few of our favorite Ugly Betty quotes from last night:

Wilhelmina: Taste is having the courage of your own convictions.
Betty: Oh I get it - taste is subjective. It's what I say it is.
Wilhelmina: No, it's what I say it is. | permalink
Amanda: Is that a dimple? I could totally set up tent in that dimple. | permalink
Amanda: I am a stylist. Rachel Zoe can suck it - there's a new skinny bitch in town! What! | permalink

I never said she was a bad person - all I said was I hope she gets what she deserves. My problem with Claire is that she went and saw her son and did nothing. HE came looking for her. If he never showed up, I doubt they would have ever reconnected...so in my mind, she is a crappy mother.

'I guess we just have to wait and see how this storyline plays out...our only hope is that she gets what she deserves!' Excusez-moi...but I can NOT abide by any unwarranted Claire bashing. What? She gives up a child for adoption and suddenly she's a bad person? Please. That last scene with her and Tyler nearly had me in tears! It was very clear how sad she was about missing out on his life and how happy she was to have him back in hers. I'm looking forward to seeing how this relationship- and others- unfold...
