Marc, who knows a dramatic moment, cues the music and tells the lights to stand by. Suzuki St. Pierre reports breathlessly on the events and expresses a hope that the baby looks more like Wilhelmina than Bradford. Isaac Mizrahi just wants Christina to stop moaning so loud. The shouts and moans give way to the sound of a crying baby, and everyone is delighted. Suzuki starts crying and adds, "Dammit, it's Dan Rather all over again!" Marc cues the music, the lights, and the hydraulic lift.
And from the center of the shiny (sorry, glittering) angels of pain, Wilhelmina Slater rises into the lights and holds her baby aloft like it's the freakin' Lion King. Then Marc cues the Confetti Land Mines, and it's the best thing ever. Just a great shot.
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.
