Ugly Betty Review: "The Past Presents the Future"

at . Comments

With only one more episode left - ever! - Ugly Betty is doing a great job wrapping up all the loose ends.

Each minute of "The Past Presents the Future" either had us laughing, smiling, holding our breaths, or crying.

First off - if you haven't watched it - Go watch it NOW!

Secondly - Yay!!! We KNEW Daniel had feelings for Betty all along!

Our only one disappointment would be why it took him so long to figure it out - and how come Betty doesn't realize it yet?!

Daniel and Betty dance...

Our hearts just melted into a puddle of sap when Daniel looked over at Betty when Hilda was giving her speech:

Hilda: That's love right - when you know somebody better than they do and you would do anything in the world to protect them. | permalink

If Betty looked over at Daniel - at the same time - that would have made it perfect! Oh well, I guess we will just have to wait until next week when Daniel rushes to London to proclaim his love for her (Very SATC, but we don't care! We love it!!!).

Are YOU excited that Daniel has feelings for Betty? Do you think they will end up together?!

How great is Marc? (And how great was his hair at the wedding!) He really came through for the entire Suarez family this week. It would have been a s**t storm if Justin walked into the gay welcoming surprise party Hilda and Ignacio set up for him. And it was super cute watching Amanda and Marc almost shed a tear when they saw Justin come out to the entire wedding party.

Amanda and Marc look on...

It really hit home for us when Betty realized that maybe her family doesn't need her as much as she thought - and in reality it was really her needing them. What a big move to accept the job in London. Do you think she will stay or go? What would you want her to do?

We are very sad to see this funny, hip, original show come to an end, but we can't wait to see what happens next week!

What did you make out of this week's episode? How do you predict things will end next week? Follow the jump to see our favorite Ugly Betty quotes!

Amanda: Don't cry - makes you look like a girl. | permalink
Betty: Sometimes I feel like I have to take care of everyone, but look at them. | permalink
Hilda: (to Marc) Did anyone ever tell you that you're a really good person. | permalink
Amanda: Spencer - Marc - Silver Fox - Purple Ferret. | permalink
Hilda: This is the happiest day of my life - alright, lets do this b***h! | permalink
Betty: I don't know what road I am on, but it is totally new. | permalink

I love this article so SOOOOOOOO much because I, too, am a Daniel/Betty shipper. You took all the words out of my mouth! I know a lot of people aren't happy with it, but i don't care if it's "rushed" or whatever. AS LONG AS HENRY IS OUT OF THE DAMN PICTURE, I CAN FREAKEN BREATH!!!!!!!!!!!!! But anyway, I'm just so happy and mushy that Daniel's true colors for Betty are finally showing that I don't care how it ends next week. Guh, I can't get over that Hilda quote you brought up. That moment of Daniel glancing over at Betty is still vividly replaying in my mind.


I find it a mistake letting Ugly betty go. Ugly betty may have been revived countless times with various international version but AS FAR AS AMERICAN SHOWS GO, Ugly Betty helps it in terms of diversity. Come on now! How many shows about hospitals and nurses and doctors have been made? How many shows that try to imitate sex and the city have been made? And then there's Ugly Betty..a diffrent themed series that this freakin station is taking for granted. retardos!


I am so sad that it is coming to an end!!!!!!, is there any chance that it really isn't and it's a teaser?. I really wish it was going to continue,I mean daniel and betty, justin and austin,and hilda..........what the heck it needs to continue i want to see what happens after daniel tells betty he loves her, and they start a romance!!!. I feel as though it's a clif hanger....although all the other things are being tied together, i also feel at the same time they opining a new chapter and i want to see where it go's.....any ideas. are daniel and betty going to wed? come on someone make up an ending for me (after betty and daniel get together!!.) what happns to the gang next?


Yey, i knew it that Daniel would be the one to figure it out first. I just loved this episode. I still can´t believe that the series will be over next week, i´m going to miss them.




Oh my gosh, this was probably the best episode of Ugly Betty ever. It was so emotionally satisfying to see everything come together. And to see all of the Suarez family so happy, it just felt so right. And Justin asking Austin to dance had be balling like a little baby. God, I love you Ugly Betty, and I will miss you so much after the finale. PS. Yay for a Betty x Daniel pairing.


I loved it! I was squealing and smiling and laughing! Daniel loves betty, I think she was realising a little bit, but not as much, I hope she does. I think I want her to have the job in london, but be with daniel at the same time, I mean he's rich enough to afford the travel. I'll go dream uyp the possibilities by myself.... And omg! was Wilhemina shot?!


omg i cried, i loved it. it was sooooo good. and i knew a while ago daniel would see his feelings for betty. they belong together. as for watching the show you can go to ninjavideo [dot] net


I was crying as I was watching it! I still am as I'm writing this!!
Wonderful episode! It was perfect!!
I can't wait for next week when Daniel tells Betty "I can't live without you!"

Ugly Betty Season 4 Episode 19 Quotes

So that thing you wanted to talk to me about, did it involve words?


Daniel: How can you drink this stuff - it tastes like bad breath.
Betty: Oh no I don't drink that stuff.
