Ugly Betty Recap: Episode 8, "I See Me, I.C.U."

Ugly Betty Rundown: Episode 8, "I See Me, I.C.U."

This week's Ugly Betty was pretty touching, as they go, but it also had a few of my favorite one liners of the season. Plus, some of them were from Henry! He may turn me into a convert yet. "Where have you been all my life?" "Math Camp." Ah, awesome. Here are my thoughts:

  • After last week's dramatic cliffhanger, this episode started with a whimper. Bradford was already in the hospital, in a coma. Betty showed up at the hospital, but was quickly defeated when Daniel reiterated that he fired her so she went to clean out her desk.... really, already? Shouldn't she stay around just in case she could help him out in any way?
  • As Bradford was on his maybe death bed (with Alexis telling him to "go towards the light" and Daniel telling him to "stay away from the light") the attention obviously shifted to the will. What would a primetime soap death be without will drama?
  • "Why is it always sadder when tragedy strikes hot people?" I love Amanda.

To see the rest of my thoughts (and favorite lines) and read about the dramatic final moments (duh duh duh) just

  • Mo'Nique was kinda hilarious as the weekend security guard with a thing for Henry. The moment that may have been my turning point with Henry: "I'm sweet like sugar, soft like suede, but unlike a piano, I never get played."
  • Also, I'm glad that Mark called out Betty for being bossy. She is.
  • "Lady fugitive, you have come to the right place." Claire Meade and Yoga together = awesome. I love that Yoga was so bad at hiding and making up lies. Plus, it was sweet at the end when Claire lied and said Yoga died so she can escape.
  • Soooo, when someone presses the remote to close Bradford Meade's office doors, you're locked in forever? That seems likely.
  • "Everyone knew about the big secret sex room except for me? It's like freshman year all over again" Okay, Henry is funny.

  • As for Betty quitting Mode, come on now. She can't do that (you know, beyond what happens next)! First Day Betty doesn't know!
  • So Bradford wakes up from his coma and immediately realizes he doesn't want to marry Willie. Has a touching moment with Claire. Asks Betty to take care of Daniel. And then...dies. This means that only Betty (and Marc) knows that Willie and Bradford didn't get married? And in the end Willie is trying to bribe the morgue guy to slip a wedding ring on his finger so she can claim they got married on his death bed? This is what I gathered.

Phew. Well, the end of that was a doozy, and I must say that the moment between Claire and Bradford was sweeter than I expected. Gotta love Claire. What did you think? What was Willie plotting? Were you as surprised as I was that Bradford just kicked it like that? Will Betty be back at Mode on Monday morning?

Wasn't it Henry that called Betty out for being bossy? This was a much better episode than last week's! I can't believe there are only 5 episodes left. Come on, writer's strike! Resolve and end!

Re: D/B shippers. I've been wondering... I haven't been watching Ugly Betty for all that long, so I'm a little confused. Do you guys think Daniel and Betty will end up together? Afaik, they did in all the other versions of the sowh (they definitely did in the German one), but it doesn't seem to be as clear here.

I second that miss-sugar. Henry's the one who called on Betty being bossy. (Cuteness!) And it's Marc... :/ It was a great episode for D/B shippers, I think, especially the last scene when Betty tenderly shows her sympathy for Daniel's loss and Daniel grabs her hand and holds it, in mourning. :cry:

Mark didn't call Betty out on her bossiness, Henry did! And I don't want Willie to win... I hope she's not planning to have his child.. that's unethical in all sorts of ways. Sigh.. till next Thursday!

I've heard that Willie is going to impregnate herself with Bradford's sperm. LoL But I liked this episode, barring Mo'Nique playing her usual "character".

I loved this episode, too...I definitely choked up a couple times in scenes with Bradford. And not to be gross or anything, but I kind of thought that Wilhemina wanted to bribe the guy to get some sperm out of Bradford so she could get pregnant with his child, getting in on the will somehow. It seems like no one else thought that, though, so I could be totally off base! :)

henry was hilarious in this episode, and so cuteeee! when will ugly betty address the alexis issue? i don't like how they haven't had alesix and daniel talk about how she tried to kill their father, remember when they went to dinner with willie and bradford, BUT the next episode had the two all chummy again. WTF?!? so does that mean we won't see yoga anymore? nooo!!!! claire and willie are one of the best comic duo in the show along with willie and marc, marc and amanda. it was so sad with yoga suddenly left after the news annouced her "death" when claire got arrested. sweetest moments did belong to claire and bradford and the last scene where alexis and dan were sitting in the empty room.

Henry redeemed himself last night. Also, i'm glad that someone kicked betty's ass for how she's been acting... but she didn't take it the way i wanted her to. The previews made me so excited for thanksgiving night!!

Oh My God! this ep was so sad. I loved Claire and Bradfford together...why he died????...Daniel should have told him that he loved him...sniff...snif... Alexis really confuses me. One day she wants to kill her father other day she's das because he died???? alexis good or bad really? I hope Claire can get out of jail! Willy is so funny...something that I wonder is why her father did not go to the wedding....

My silly self has convinced myself that Willie bribed the nurse to let her take pictures with Bradford's body and be the suppose witness as proof that they were married. Cue the music! This could gooder than good, Buzz!

One of my favorite lines of the night was Wilhelmina's: "BALLS."

what is Willie up to??? I don't think it's about slipping a wedding ring on him, it has to be something more devious for sure. ...oh, and finally Betty was interesting and I LOVED Claire and Yoga hiding! "who are you?" "exterminator" "exterminator?!really??!!"
