Series Creator Bids Goodbye to Ugly Betty

at . Comments

When all was said and done on Ugly Betty last night, our favorite magazine editor chose... nobody.

She picked up, moved to London... and ran into Daniel. Dinner was planned between the pair, but viewers were left in the dark about how it ended.

Why did series creator Silvio Horta go this route? How does he feel now that it's all over? He went into detail about the show in an interview with TV Guide:

On Betty and Daniel's future: They've been there for each other for the entire course of the series and to end with that possibility  and what I think you end with is a possibility - with anyone but Daniel seemed off. Are they together after that? I don't even want to say. I have my version in my head of what happens after she walks away from him, but I think everyone can have their own interpretation.

A Finale Shot

On casting Bryan Batt: I'm just a huge fan of his from Mad Men; he's a terrific actor. That was one story line that some people were like, "Do we need to reopen that?" and for me, it was way overdue. I wanted to answer that one question. It was egregiously left open.

On the soft side of Wilhelmina: Wilhelmina will always be Wilhelmina, but over the course of the series there have been times when we've seen a lot of that softer side. But I think on the show, as in real life, people are what they are. If you were to imagine these characters beyond the series, she's not going to become a saint.

WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE SERIES FINALE?

Ugly Betty Quotes

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

Wilhelmina

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.
