This review is from: Ugly Betty: The Complete Fourth and Final Season (DVD)
And all good things must come to an end. The fourth and final season of Ugly Betty tracks Betty and her world and tries it's best to find a reasonable send off point (NOT CLOSURE) for all characters involved. BRAVO to the main actors (especially Mark Indelicato, Becki Newton, Michael Urie, Vanessa Williams and the super awesome America Ferrera) for giving us some great character acting and real good and sad times. I will miss this show. here's the rundown of the fourth and final season.
essentially: (BEWARE OF POSSIBLE SPOILERS)
-Hilda finds happiness, as the show decided, where and with whom she fits with. (closure)
-Ignacio comes to terms with the idea of his girls growing up and finds some sort of love, (we don't get much)
-Amanda finds what she's been looking for, or rather it finds her, (we don't get much)
-Marc becomes what he wants to be and finally get's credit from everybody who never noticed (closure)
-Justin has probably the BIGGEST (duhh) revelation, but it could have sent out more of an impact for the viewers or fans to see him understand himself and be a message for tolerance and acceptance. (agonizing closure but a great story within a story)
-Wilhelmina sort of gets what she wants and, SURPRISE, it doesn't come by her schemes or plans after all (closure)
-Claire finally finds peace with her family (closure)
-Daniel finally realizes what's important and who really matters and takes a huge leap (agonizing closure)
-Betty finally takes a next step and a new chapter seems to start and although her love life seems in shambles as always a new possibility presents itself in the end (agonizing closure)
Unanswered questions and what we don't get to see or will ever know is:
-What about Christina's husband Stewart?
-How do Wilhelmina and Claire find a medium given their final circumstances?
-Does Ignacio ever get to be with his long distance love?
-What happens to Conner?
-Does Tyler ever go about tackling his father?
-Does Wilhelmina ever find peace with her family (daughter, father, sister)?
-Does Alexis and Daniel Jr ever become a family and or return?
And of course there is that ending.... I won't spoil that one, BUT OHHHHHHH, to not know what happens is both elegant, fair but a painstaking end to a knockout series. BRAVO again.
