Mode gets manipulated tonight on Ugly Betty, and our heroine definitely isn't happy about it. Judging from the title (and my knowledge of danger levels), the company risks being controlled by an external force difficult to exterminate. In other words, Mode's in trouble with the Community of the Phoenix running the show.
On "Level (7) With Me," Daniel (Eric Mabius) blindly agrees to letting the Community's leaders have its way with Mode. With Bennett (guest star Dylan Baker) promising to reunite him with his dead wife, it's as though anything is possible. Such as sabotage.
Betty (America Ferrera) worries about the state of her friend and springs into action to save him as usual. But she won't be doing it alone. She decides to scheme around with Claire (Judith Light) in order to help Daniel and the two come up with an ingenious plan.
Soon, Betty rallies up both Matt (Daniel Eric Gold) and Amanda (Becki Newton) to accomplish the task. The three become allies, surprisingly, and it looks like there's still hope for Daniel. However, it won't be that simple. The Community just won't go down without a fight.
On the other end of the Ugly Betty spectrum, a defeated Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) just lets herself go. She's given up on trying to keep up appearances and has been seen wearing sweats and garden clogs in public. The press erupts in joy at this tabloid-worthy tale, and it's up to Marc (Michael Urie) to control the situation.
As his boss - and friend, even though she won't admit it - sinks deeper into ruin, Marc decides to dig deeper into the mystery. He won't give up until he finds out just what Nico (YaYa DaCosta) is keeping secret.
Also joining the regular cast tonight is Jamie-Lynn Sigler as Natalie, Alec Mapa as Suzuki St. Pierre, Sarah LaFleur as Molly and Piter Marek as Oskar Castelar. Don't miss the new episode of Ugly Betty titled "Level (7) With Me" as it airs at 9pm on ABC.
