    I wish they had gotten The Chin (Lucy Liu) to take the case and represent Betty's dad. Granted, it may not be high profile enough for her, but doesn't it involve murder! (Didn't the dad kill someone who was abusing Betty's mom?)

    I'm reading back through this thread (I know, I should do that before posting) and just wanted to say to this! Strange such a divine show would be named the wrong thing.

    (sorry off-topic - misskitty i have the book where your avatar came from, love it!)

    Wow, she really is a beauty, inside and out.

    Great point, you made me rethink this. Ain't forums cool?

    I always loved Hans Christian Andersen.

    The fact that Betty has received so much unconditional love from her family and also is secure, is the ONLY reason why she can stand the chronic abuse of MODE....
    These are some of the finer aspects of the show. I love it when something makes me feel deeply, and laugh out loud, at the same time.

    More stuff about characters:

    He may be exaggerated but not, imo, more than most of the other characters. I have a dear friend (who grew up just one block from Betty's house!) who totally relates to him, and says he felt like him as a child, but wasn't supported the way our young hero is. Like Betty, her nephew can be himself because of the love in his family. Nice that he is now accepted by his dad as well.

    In any case he is an amazing young actor.

    OH yes. Haha. I knew a guy just like Walter, too! (He lived one neighborhood away from Betty.) Poor dear

    I'm only halfway through this thread but just a bit more before I rest my eyes:

    They are SO much fun to watch!!! I love that we've seen their wounds in a sensitive way, but oh man do their comedic sides crack me up!

    I love her and am so happy to see her in this intense role. She's an excellent actress

    "Baby Chutney" was hilarious. I think it was a play on a few celeb baby names but it's most fun to make fun of Tom

    Goodnight pajama party! You're a fun bunch to watch with

    oh NO. It better NOT be up against TAR. Ugh. I hate when they do that.

    Great episode this week. I love the symbolism in the man on the motorcycle that she thought was Henry guiding her toward things. I hope Ignacio's okay!

    Did you see the previews with Claire and other inmates holding a gun to someone??

    It was great, as usual

    And the season finale looks like it will be very exciting!!!

    I hope Ignacio is okay too. Though they take on very serious issues, I'd like to think they wouldn't turn the plot too sad.

    That was a great episode last night. I really hope that Ignacio will be okay. I loved the fact that Betty thought the guy on the bike was Henry which led her right to her grandmother.
    I can only please one person a day, today is not your day and tomorrow doesn't look good either

    Rebecca Gayheart really freaked me out last night. What happened to her?!
