[EPISODE]Hello Goodbye

Betty (America Ferrera), Marc (Michael Urie), Amanda (Becki Newton) and Spencer Cannon attend the funeral of Amanda’s dog, Halston. They are forced to flee the service, when Betty realises that Amanda hasn’t got a permit to bury Halston in the park. Suzuki St. Pierre (Alex Mapa) reveals that Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) is unconscious following the shooting at MODE and that Claire (Judith Light) is the only witness and possible suspect. During a Suarez family meal, Ignacio (Tony Plana) tell Betty to stay in New York as the English food isn’t nice. Hilda (Ana Ortiz) and Bobby mention that they are looking for an apartment, but are keeping it a secret from Ignacio. Hilda then encourages Betty to tell Daniel (Eric Mabius) about her new job in London. While picking out photos for the 100th issue of MODE, Betty goes to confess to Daniel that she’s moving to London, but he interrupts her and asks her to write a profile piece on him for the issue.

Wilhelmina wakes up from her coma to see Connor (Grant Bowler) standing over her. He tells her that he’s been allowed to visit her and reveals that he can’t live without her. Claire also visits and tells Wilhelmina that she wants Tyler’s name kept out of the investigation and offers her money to keep quiet. Marc overhears Betty talking to Hilda about the job in London and sends a text to all the staff at MODE, forcing Betty to tell Daniel, but she discovers that he already knows and he tells her that he is fine with her going. When Betty goes to get her contract release form from Daniel, he burns it in front of her, but ends up burning himself. He tells her that he is angry that she is going and doesn’t want to release her from her contract. Amanda tells Marc that Spencer screened her call and Marc tells her that Spencer is her father, Amanda then worries that Spencer will reject her. Claire talks to Daniel and asks if he has feelings for Betty, which Daniel denies. Daniel then tells Betty that he can’t live without her and offers her a promotion, which she turns down. Bobby tells Ignacio that he and Hilda are moving to a place in the city and Hilda worries that Ignacio will be lonely without them.

Wilhelmina holds a press conference and announces that Claire didn’t shoot her and that she shot herself cleaning her gun. Claire thanks her and Wilhelmina says that they are good. Daniel doesn’t show up to Betty’s farewell party and Claire tells Betty that losing her is very hard for him. Spencer arrives and tells Amanda that he already knows she’s his daughter and that he loves her. Justin (Mark Indelicato) encourages Marc to go talk to Troy and they get back together. Wilhelmina congratulates Betty and tells her that she has ‘big balls’ for leaving MODE. Daniel tells Wilhelmina that he’s stepping down as editor of MODE and gives her the job. Wilhelmina then visits Connor in jail and tells him about her plan to get his sentence reduced. Betty says a tearful goodbye to her family, she is then seen in London where she bumps into Daniel, who asks her to dinner. Betty agrees and asks him if he needs a job as she’s looking for a new assistant. Daniel tells her that he might submit his resume and watches Betty as she walks away.

Hello Goodbye

I’ve had to say good-bye more  times than I would have liked. But everyone can say that. And no matter how many times we do it, even when it’s for the greater good, it always stinks. And though we’ll never forget what we’ve given up, we owe it to ourselves to keep moving forward.
What we can’t do is live our lives always afraid of the next good-bye, because chances are they’re not going to stop.
The trick is to recognize when a good-bye can be a good thing.

I will never forget you, Ugly Betty. Always in my heart. Love you forever!
