Previously on Ugly Betty: As a result of Santos's death, Hilda was really sad and Justin started acting out. It seemed like Wili was losing her grip on Bradford, but we -- and Claire -- should have known those talons don't release easily. Daniel lost an advertising account when he defended Alexis from tranny-haters, and Wili played along because her new grand master plan is to destroy Mode and start up her own magazine. Oh, and the Henry sperm did in fact meet up with the Charlie egg, which means sad times for Betty.
On this last point, we begin with Betty on a bus, talking on her cell phone to Henry, also on a bus. Ah, I see where this is going. Henry wants to give their relationship a shot, but Betty knows that in five months, he's going to go back to Tucson and be all daddy-like, so she thinks it's best that they avoid each other until he leaves. Isn't this about the seventeenth time they've tried the strategy of avoiding each other? We can see how well it's worked up until now. They make plans to see as little of each other as possible, with conflicting lunch schedules and the like (though Betty of course has to make an adjustment for taco Tuesdays), but end up running into each other outside of the bus. That they were both on. Those crazy kids! Fate is on their side, except in matters of paternity.
Back at Casa De Suarez, Ignacio tries to tempt both Hilda and Justin with machaca. Hilda has a hot date with Santos at the cemetery, while Justin angstily says he has plans with his friends. Ignacio asks if he's going out for auditions for his school's production of The Music Man, but Justin says that the drama club is for losers. At the rate he's going, he's actually getting good experience to ace his audition for Kenickie in Grease. Ignacio points out that Justin actually started the drama club, but Justin gives an attitude-laden "Whatever," and he hands Hilda a slip to sign. Ignacio asks if Hilda knows what she just signed. She totally doesn't, but gives Ignacio the brush-off nonetheless. Why can't Ignacio ever get anyone to eat his food? Good thing his family is so glad to have him back from Mexico. His instincts are right, as Justin plans to take his little trampy girlfriend and delinquent friend for a ride tomorrow in lieu of the field trip that Hilda has just excused him from. Child delinquency begins with parent delinquency!
Back at Mode, Betty fills Daniel in on his calls. One was from Kathy Griffin, begging for a date. And Betty said no! I've never been so disappointed in her. Too bad Daniel isn't still a sexoholic, because Kathy would be all over that. Another was from Bradford, asking if Daniel and Alexis would come to dinner with him and Wili. Daniel does not relish the thought of having dinner with his future stepmonster and quips, "One big crappy family." And speaking of the stepmonster, she's called a meeting in her office to talk about the ad crisis that she, unbeknownst to others, has facilitated. Betty tries hard to avoid sitting next to Henry in the meeting, which of course leads to her sitting right next to Henry in the meeting. Wili reports that 52% of their advertisers have pulled out, which is exactly what Henry would have done if he were smart. Henry tells the group that Mode will be out of business in 90 days if things don't pick up.
