    Betty trying to win back the affection of daniel asa friend while wilhemena still coping with her evil plans as well as her side kicks .... I just hope betty would come to her senses that she could never have a relationship with a guy who has a pregnant woman waiting ... on the oter hand i hope the writers would make betty beautiful and makeover and show her strengths to everyone ... Betty is been hiding in her shell and i want her to prove to eeryone that she is also strong and striking .. so please writers enough with the pit stops and straight up and cncentrate with betty about making her stronger ... it would be good also if you will reveal a bit love interest of Daniel and make him fall for betty .. Betty was very loyal to him and daniel is searching for someone that would love him sincerely so both of them deserves the best ...moreless
  • This is arguably the best Ugly Betty episode of all time.

    Taking place right after the wedding episode, this episode mainly focuses on Bradford and the connections to his family as he lies in I.C.U. Betty also reflects on herself a lot (as implied by the "I See Me" part of the title).

    There are a lot of sad moments in this episode, many of which might make you teary-eyed. This is arguably the best episode in the series to date (most people would probably agree that, at the very least, it's the best episode out of season 2). There are so many amazing storylines wrapped up, and they're all done in a dazzling way. Between Bradford, Claire and Yoga, Betty reflecting about herself since she came to Mode, and Wilhelmina's devious plotting (no, even in times of tragedy, this woman will never stop!), this episode hits the spot.

    That's not to say, however, that the episode is void of any comedy. In between all the tearjerking scenes, there are a lot of hilarious lines. They aren't the main focus of the episode, but they're still there lurking in the background to remind us that this is, of course, a dramedy.

    To really understand this episode, you'd have to watch it. It won't disappoint.moreless
  • Yes he does love you

    I must say this was indeed a touching episode. It's kind of sad they killed Bradford off but it was a well written storyline that kept me watching and glued until the very ending. I'm glad Daniel forgave Betty and saw that it wasn't her fault that she made the choice that she did. Betty was also a sweetie for helping Claire out and it was very brave of Claire to blow up her cover just to see her husband one last time before he died. A somber mood it was but of course the show had some scenes that made you laugh. Haha the Lamanda scene with Henry was funny and the way Marc knocked down Betty on a race for Bradford's will haha. Priceless. A special episode indeed especially in the scene where Daniel and Alexis sit in the empty hospital room where their dad once laid.moreless

  • Amazing

    A wonderful addition to the 2nd season of Ugly Betty which ceases to go into a sophomore slump, it also ends with a very intriguing cliffhanger!

    After the tragedy during the previous episode, e find out that Bradford Mead is OK and that his wife is ready to leave the country. Betty must then do favors for Mrs. Mead with the help of Henry and no help from L'Amanda, a very interesting new character played by Monique. Wilhelmina also remains to play the evil one with Mark as her little pet doing everything with and for her.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This is the third time that Alan Dale has died of a heart attack on TV. The first was in 1993, when he played Jim Robinson on Neighbours, the second was in 2005, when he played Caleb Nichol on The OC. And now in Ugly Betty.

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Daniel: (about Bradford) You always think you're gonna have more time with someone. I never told him I loved him.
      Amanda: Do you love him?
      Daniel: Yes. Yes. We were just never one of those families, we never said it.
      Amanda: Look Daniel, you may never have gotten his love or approval, but at least you got his jawline. Daniel, he's not gone, he's right upstairs and you can still go and tell him anything you want to.

    • Betty: Any news on Mr. Meade?
      Justin: They still haven't found the suit.
      Betty: No, I mean, how is Mr. Meade?
      Justin: Well, he's in a robin's egg blue hospital gown with white piping.
      Hilda: They say he's still unconscious.

    • Wilhelmina: I know he changed the will, I just don't know what it says. For all I know, he could be leaving everything to...ugh, charity. Marc, I think you know what we need to do.
      Marc: Find this Charity person and kill her.
      Wilhelmina: We need to get our hands on...the will.

    • Marc: It was a beautiful wedding, Willy, right up until the heart attack.
      Wilhelmina: Yes, and thanks to his inconvenient collapse, my future is in limbo.

    • (Looking for Bradford's will)
      Betty: I'm gonna go in and look for the safe, you be lookout.
      Henry: oh, no, I wanna look for the safe.
      Betty: No, you're lookout.
      Henry: O-kay. You're acting sorta bossy.
      Betty: Oh. Oh God, I-I am. I used to just be a liar and a thief and now I'm bossy too.

    • Wilhelmina: Please, do you really think I enjoy scheming, lying and scurrying about like a rat with great shaped bones?
      Betty: Yes, I think you do.
      Wilhelmina: Mmm, maybe a little.

    • Marc: (to Wilhelmina) Is there water brewing underneath you because I think I smell a plan brewing.

    • (Trapped in Wilhelmina's office)
      Betty: What are you looking at?
      Henry: That grate. It gets us into the vents and the vents go everywhere. This could be our way out.
      Betty: Hold on Agent Bauer, we are not wriggling through a heating system.

    • Amanda: Why is it always sadder when tragedy strikes hot people?

    • Betty: (seeing a vision of herself) Are you my ghost? Am I dead? Did they bury me in my poncho?
