Anyway, after this meeting, Betty runs down Daniel's appointments for him, including the fact that he's got an "Editor in Chief" meeting in Bradford's office the next day. Daniel is paying absolutely no attention to her at all, and just directs her to find out who Salma is for him. "Must hunt down Daniel's babe," Betty repeats, and rolls her eyes. She went to one of America's Best Value colleges for this?
Elsewhere, Bradford is not getting ready for his Editors In Chief meeting, but is instead moping in his office, watching old film of Fey Sommers. On the tape, she tells a reporter, "Whatever Bradford Mead does, he can't get rid of me." This show is delightfully subtle, like a piano falling on your foot. Bradford's Crusty Old Assistant Broad swoops in and announces that it feels like Fey is still around. Bradford, privately, is like, "You have no idea." COAB wonders if Bradford remembers "what tomorrow is." Bradford sighs. "How could I forget?" he asks. I hope it's the first day of the Barney's Warehouse Sale!
Over to Wil's icily chic apartment, which one of the posters rightly noted looks just like a very posh dentist's office. Nico is eating cereal for dinner, despite that fact that Wil has brought home wine, cheese, and pears. And perhaps we are supposed to feel that this is not an appropriate dinner for a teen, but the actress playing Nico looks about my age (hint: NOT A TEEN), and cheese and wine and pears sounds pretty great to me. I'm sure she'd love it! Anyhoodle, there's all this blahdey blah that Nico wants to go to school in New York, while Wil thinks Swiss boarding school is just the ticket. I can not believe we're actually supposed to think that Jowharah Jones is, like, fifteen. IMDb has no birthday listed for her, which is Hollywood code for "WAY older than she's playing." It also seems to think that her character's name is spelled "Niko," but I refuse to believe that. Anyway, Wil explains that back when she was a girl, she didn't want to go off to boarding school either, but it turned out to be fantastic. She eyes the cereal box, and adds that school also promises "far better food than Captain Crisp." Nico rolls her eyes: "Cap'n. I don't think he's an official maritime officer," she says, and takes a big old bite.
At the Suarez abode, which does NOT look anything like a dentist's office, the girls are going through paperwork and photos at the kitchen table. "Dad, is this everything from Mexico?" Betty asks, and he tells her that it should all be there. Betty wonders again why he didn't apply for a green card in 1986, when Reagan offered amnesty. Ignacio says, very sternly, "I missed it, okay?" Betty apologizes, and then they start trying to figure out how to pay for this lawyer. Hilda suggests -- apparently not for the first time -- that Betty try to sell Herbalux at Mode. She thinks it'll be easy money, since all those high fashion magazine girls are dying to be skinny. Ignacio agrees that this isn't the worst idea he's ever heard. And while I myself would not want to be selling diet pills at work, Hilda's got a point. Betty is not paying attention to this debate because she's distracted by a photo she's found of their mother in which she's holding hands with someone who's been torn out. For your information: Mama Suarez was dishy. Ignacio claims the man torn out of the picture was just an old boyfriend, but Betty sniffs that she thought Ignacio and her mother were each other's first love. "Stop it with the damn questions," Ignacio finally snaps at her, and gets his sweater. "I'm going for a walk. If that's okay with you, Betty," he says. He leaves, and there is a moment of silence, and then Hilda asks Betty what's wrong with her. "Obviously, he's sensitive about all this." Betty points out that they deserve to know the truth, but Hilda counters that getting Ignacio all upset isn't going to help anything. Betty retorts that she's not letting Ignacio off the hook until he tells them the whole truth. And then she agrees to sell Herbalux at Mode.
