The next day, Betty is telling Daniel about Cal. For example, he's been in outer space. More relevantly to the plot, "Hartley made his reputation riding to the rescue of struggling companies." In case that wasn't obvious enough, Betty goes on to point out that they're a struggling company. And apparently Cal Hartley thinks media properties like newspapers and magazines are undervalued. Convenient! Although I don't fully understand how their plan to have Cal invest in the company is going to work with the ongoing delicate balance of ownership they've got going on. Anyway, Betty guarantees she can set up a meeting between Daniel and Cal.
By the way, I'd just like to remind you that Meade Publications isn't in financial trouble because of anything having to do with the economy or its management. They just had all their assets stolen by their CFO and then put out a low-selling issue. They don't really have any long-term problems that we've been told about.
Cut to Matt and Betty out on the sidewalk. Matt is telling Betty in no uncertain terms that he absolutely cannot and will not set up a meeting with his father. As they get into the cab, Daniel is also on the sidewalk and gives Betty an excited double-thumbs-up. Come to think of it, you rarely see a double-thumbs-up that's not excited. I guess the last time it was done laconically was by the Fonz. Betty looks sad.
In the Suarez house, Betty is bemoaning her fate. What can she do? Justin is more concerned about Matt, who must be under incredible pressure, judging from the reruns of Dynasty he's been watching. Hilda opines that the rich boyfriend should be kept happy even at the cost of the job. Justin has some point that's just an excuse to talk about Linda Evans playing two lookalike characters. Ignacio is fairly realistic and recommends that Betty just tell Daniel it didn't work out. Betty agrees that she'll tell Daniel the truth, which means that she will certainly not do it.
Pictures of Wilhelmina's baby. Wili attempts to draw Marc's attention to the supposed Slater Chin on the baby, although Marc points out that Wili hasn't had a Slater Chin since 1981. And he doesn't buy her claim that babies have cheekbones. Incidentally, Wili's got some crazy earrings in this scene. It's like a giant jewel hanging from a carabiner hanging from another giant jewel. Call me old-fashioned, but I think that when your earrings hang past your shoulders, something's gone wrong. Wili suggests that the baby must take after Bradford, but the only similarity Marc sees is "the fishbelly complexion." Finally Wili admits that she's a little freaked that Miles thought the baby looked like Christina. Marc enthusiastically agrees and then frantically backs up. Anyway, it's clearly medically impossible, right?
