    Don't Ask, Don't Tell!

    Thursday, March 22 2007

    Betty tries to get away from the news cameras and ends up running directly into a wall. Justin amuses himself by watching the footage over and over again. Betty informs Hilda that Daniel’s family is in a real mess right now. At Mode, Bradford and Alexis finally face off! She tells him that she wished that he was still in prison and he tells her that she is fired! Amanda is shocked to find out that Marc still hasn’t told his mother that he is gay. He then informs her that his mother is coming to town and that he needs to end their “make believe” girlfriend/boyfriend relationship is over. He insists that after 3 years his mother is pressuring him to take the relationship to the next level. Amanda gets angry and storms off yelling to Marc that she will be the best pretend girlfriend he has ever had! Bradford goes to see Claire to see how she is doing. She insists that she has been better. He tells her that he is here for her. Daniel comes in and Claire informs them that she wants them to be a family....including Alexis! Claire then tells Bradford that he can’t fire Alexis because he doesn’t own Mode. She informs him that he is the owner of Meade Publications....but that she is the owner of Mode, and she says that Alexis stays!

    Alexis sees Daniel and Betty running down the street to the printers. Daniel and Alexis sprint side by side toward the entrance but Alexis wins in the end. Daniel then runs into Betty at a bar and tells her that if Alexis wants the company, then she can have it. He insists that he has plenty of partying that he can catch up on. Wilhelmina sits in her office and thinks of a plan. She reaches down and scratches out her last name (Slater) on her stationary and writes in Meade! She then dolls all up and heads over to see Bradford. She offers him a little dinner and some company. Betty arrives back home and finds Marc sitting alone on her front porch. He tells her that his mother left when he told her the truth. Betty tells him that she has learned that it is not always family that loves you the most and that sometimes it is the family that we make for ourselves. Marc leaves to go home and Betty sits alone and reads the letter that Daniel wrote. His letter talks about how happy he is to have Alexis back with him and that his family is coming together. Betty goes inside and spends time with her family.

    Daniel and Alexis arrive at work still on speaking terms.....which doesn't make Wilhelmina happy. Betty tells Daniel that she has something that she has to tell him and blurts out that his mother said that she is the one that killed Faye Summers! Daniel insists that Claire becomes a little deranged when she drinks a lot. Betty goes into the details about the murder and Daniel immediately rushes off to see his father. Bradford tells Daniel that there is no way that Claire did that and that he needs to focus on other things. He orders him to get Grace Chin on the case. Grace is a new lawyer that Daniel happened to stand up for a date back in college. Marc tells a stressed Wilhelmina that he will find out what is going on with Alexis. Wilhelmina calls Christina to her office and demands to know if Betty has said anything about she and Daniel. She tells Christina that her job is to “snitch”...not “stitch”. Marc informs Wilhelmina that he has discovered that Alexis’ calendar is blank and that she has no friends....of any kind. Wilhelmina takes that information and decides to run with it.

    Wilhelmina shows up and tells Marc and Christina that they need a new plan because Alexis has changed her mind. Christina tells her that she is not one of her flying monkeys, but Wilhelmina quickly reminds her that she is. She tells her that if it wasn’t for her she would never have gotten noticed at fashion week. Later Marc and Christina are alone again in the office when Sarah Jessica Parker’s people call and tell her that they have changed their mind about the dress. Marc tells her that “Willy” certainly works fast. He insists that there is no need to worry and that it will get easier. Claire goes to see Bradford and tells him that she is going to turn herself in! Bradford screams for her not too, but she insists that she has to.

    Scandal, Sex Change and Murder....Oh My!

    Thursday, February 08 2007

    Betty watches the news coverage of the fashion show in disbelief that this is happening to someone that she knows. She explains the difference between a transsexual and a transvestite to her father. She rushes out the door to work and speeds past Walter...barely acknowledging him. Ignacio tells Walter that Betty is just really busy with work. As luck would have it, Betty arrives at Mode and shares the elevator with Alexis up to the office. Daniel goes to visit his father in jail. He tells Bradford that Claire spent the entire weekend with Alex. Bradford insists that he is innocent and that he needs Daniel to focus on running Mode.

    I'm Coming Out

    Thursday, February 01 2007

    Betty stresses out that Fashion Week is finally here. Hilda lounges around in a depression over her job crisis while Justin enthusiastically explains to his mother and grandfather what Fashion Week is. Daniel goes to see his father in his office. Bradford tells him that he has really proven himself the past few months. He informs Daniel that tomorrow after the show he plans on announcing his intentions for Daniel to take over the company one day. Marc brags to Amanda that he earns extra money each year by tipping off a mall based chain about the designs for Fashion Week. She thinks it is genius but Marc still won’t let her in on the action. Wilhelmina tells Fabio that she expects to be named as the new Editor In chief soon. Fabio shares her beauty secret using ducks but Wilhelmina insists that she won’t need that for years. As soon as Fabio leaves, Wilhelmina orders Marc to research the duck miracle!

    Bradford tells Betty that he is shocked that Daniel isn’t anywhere to be found. Betty insists that she will find him. Alexis tells Daniel that she wanted to tell him before the surgery but couldn’t. Daniel struggles to catch his breath and then insists that they think about Alex all of the time. Betty bumps into to American Idol Star Katharine McPhee on her way to find Daniel. She explains that she loves Idol and had “McPhever”, but she loses her excitement when Katharine hands her a signed CD to give to her sister....Hilda! Hilda bumps into an intoxicated Daniel on her way out. She grabs the bottle of liquor and downs a few sips herself. Betty is totally stunned when she walks out and finally finds Daniel.....kissing Hilda! She tells him that his father is looking for him and sends him inside. When he leaves, Betty lashes out at Hilda and tells her that she is not going to let her take Mode away from her. Hilda tells Betty that she has a great job, a great boss and a cute guy that’s into her and that she needs to give her a break. The sisters finally calm down and Hilda tells her that the reason she didn’t tell her that Henry called was because she thought that he was some big city guy that would hurt her. Hilda apologizes and tells her that she should have known that she could take care of herself. They rush in to catch the actual fashion show.

    Constance’s boyfriend arrives at Ignacio’s house thinking that someone had called for a cab. Ignacio tells him that he has hurt Constance really bad. He informs Ignacio that if he wants his green card he has got to get intimate with Constance because she is the one that stamps approved or denied. He informs him that this is how Constance works and that she did the same thing to him. Wilhelmina brings Christina on the stage and introduces her to the crowd as the designer of the finale dress that Alexis was wearing. She then calls Bradford up for a few words. Alexis steps over and takes the microphone from Bradford and tells the crowd that a few years back Bradford lost a son. She then tells them that what he didn’t know was that he gained a daughter. She looks at her father and says “hello daddy”! The crowd goes crazy just as the cops rush on stage and arrest Bradford for the murder of Faye Summers. Christina gets upset at Wilhelmina when she figures out that the envelope she delivered to the police was used to frame Bradford. Daniel stands next to Betty and asks her if it is easy to have a sister!

    Sofia's Choice

    Thursday, January 11 2007

    Daniel takes Sofia to his father’s house to have dinner with both of his parents. Claire introduces herself as his alcoholic mother and takes her away to see some of his baby pictures. They finally sit down to dinner and Sofia is shocked to find out that Daniels brother passed away. They begin to talk about her life growing up and she informs them that she wasn’t raised with a silver spoon in her mouth….and that they could barely afford plastic ones. They later retire to the family room and tell Sofia that sometimes a marriage can be awful, but when bad things happen you realize that you could have never survived it without your partner. Daniel’s parents get up and begin to dance….Daniel and Sofia follow in their lead. Claire tells Bradford that she does like Sofia, but that she thinks that she is hiding something.

    Sofia and Daniel are live on the air when Betty rushes in. Security guards carry Betty out of the studio as she screams for Daniel. The show begins and Sofia tells the morning show hosts all about her new magazine. She tells them that she is also sitting there with the most notorious bachelor in Manhattan….and that she got him to propose to her in 60 days. Daniel squirms as Sofia holds up the article and tells the audience that they can do the same thing. Daniel admits that he was not aware that she was doing this but that they have fallen in love. Sofia turns to Daniel and informs him that he is the one that has fallen in love. She takes the ring off and hands it to him. While all of Manhattan watches the television show, Sofia tells Daniel that she has to focus on her work right now. After the show ends Daniel tells Sofia that he can’t believe that she did this to him. She insists that this is how he has treated numerous girls. She informs him that she had to do it and that this is how she has gotten to where she is today. She tells him that for what it is worth, he was so much more that she thought he would be. Daniel leaves the studio in a total state of shock. Betty tries to stop him to convey how sorry she is, but he doesn’t even notice her there. Bradford stands by Daniel at his house and offers to fire Sofia, but Daniel insists that the stunt that she pulled will probably get him the biggest launch of any magazine he has ever had.
