After the show, Betty is cleaning up some stuff backstage, and Matt shows up. Do I say "shows up" too much in these recaps? It's not my fault; characters tend to just appear at random. Anyway, Matt is impressed that there was even a live birth during the show. He compliments her on putting on such a great show, especially since Heinrich gave her nothing to work with. Betty says that Matt will get to learn all about fashion, and Matt finally admits that he isn't interested in fashion so much as he is interested in Betty. Then he cocks a finger pistol really weirdly and slinks off in shame.
Sitting on the runway, Betty asks Daniel how it feels to have a half-brother. In theory, there should have been a point when Daniel had a half-brother, but I guess since everyone thought Alex was dead, Daniel didn't know about it. Anyway, Daniel misses his father. He also thought Betty did a great job, and that she found a way to make unwearable clothes beautiful. Isn't that the whole point of Fashion Week?
Daniel's impressed with Betty's ability to connect with people and thinks she'd make a good editor at Mode. Betty is embarrassed that it took her so long to figure out that fashion has some substance. Then Daniel points out that if Betty's ever really going to have a career in fashion, her sense of color and pattern needs a lot of work. Well, I'm not sure you'd have a show then, would you? Anyway, Betty figures that if she decides on a career in fashion, then she, Betty, will be the one deciding what looks good.
And the episode's over! Pretty good one this time out, too.
Montykins thought this episode had kind of a subtle Hedwig and the Angry Inch thing going on, but couldn't find a good spot to mention it. Monty also has a blog devoted to Movie Novelizations, cleverly entitled Monty on Movie Novelizations. You can email him at email@example.com if that's your idea of a good time.
