The Season Finale

So I'm usually not the type of person who feels the need to broadcast her opinions online lol - but the latest double episode has provoked me to speak.




Personally, I think that the writers have made a mistake.




I think the only good move was making sure that Betty and Henry didn't get back together.




Betty should have fought hard for her place at the new york times - so that if she didn't get the job she wanted she got a place as a recurring free-lance writer or something so that she is still forced to work at mode, thereby allowing the cast to stay together



Additionally, she and her hot, thoughtful, soo soo nice and rich boyf should NOT have broken-up. They should have moved in together, or at least stayed together but been like "maybe we should slow things down, you know figure things out" or "i still like you in fact i'm in love withe you, but i think that maybe we should see other people for a while because i need some time" there is such dramatic potenial with a relationship on the rocks.



What the writers don't seem to understand is that Betty's character needs to develope herself and that by simply starting her at the same place every season as an audience we start to find it hard to take her seriously. I mean she barely apologised to the boyf when he confronted her. She isn't or at least should be the type of character that just lets everything happen to her.



Well that what I think - thoughts? x

i agree with u. It was a very disappointing season finale and since season 1, Betty hasnt changed at all. Not even a little bit. I kept hoping that something good would happen...but nothing did. Im actually contemplating dropping the show next season if things dont improve drastically in the first few episodes.
Betty's fate/dream/deepest desire was left up to the toss of a coin? seriously?? I think that was the most disappointing moment ever. She barely put up a fight when Matt dumped her, she just let herself get reeled back in with Henry (Who had a gf!!) and she just let her dream job be taken away from her...
She has definitely become a very boring character who doesnt do anything to get what she wants. The show used to be about being confident and strong and sure of urself no matter what everyone else says...what happened??

My hope is that this sets her up to really come out strong in the upcoming season. I don't think she'll get back together with Henry, and this new job will bring new responsibilities that I think will really challenge her. Hopefully!!

i have a couple of things to say.
1. why did Betty not fight for her dream job? well because she has grown attached to mode and she feels that its not the right time for it.
2.and about the kiss with Henry. how true is that you will always have some kind of feeling for your first love? but they should not have Henry come back in the 4th season. she needs to move on.
3.and i think she is becoming arrogant.how could she not feel guilty?
4. what a interesting development about Matt? is he working in mode so that she can fall in love with him again or give her hell?
mmmmm can't wait for the 4th season

I cant believe that they killed off Molly. This show is so dramatic so much that good things cant last like Molly and Santos (season 1).

Okay so Daniel's lost Molly and Betty's lost her dude..and if any of you have seen the 'behind-the-scenes' pictures (there's a picture of Betty with a make-over(although still a wardrobe malfunction lol) and so I'm sensing a Betty-daniel possibility....But then there's a picture of Betty kissing another guy so maybe notas in the the Indian ugly Betty, them 2 got together..but it's just a hunch although I hope they do =p
