What I'm Watching: Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty: Season 3, Episode 3 "Crimes of Fashion" (C+)

It doesn't seem entirely necessary to devote an entire episode to solving a mystery that could easily have been summed up in a single scene. "Ugly Betty" has already done this, and to much better effect, in the show's first season when Wilhelmina was interrogating Betty, Marc, and Amanda to find out which one of them blabbed about Mode's upcoming shoot plans and they framed someone else. We do of course have that tremendous bombshell at the end of the episode, that Alexis is actually Daniel Jr.'s father, not Daniel. Shouldn't ultimately make much of a difference, but Daniel is going to be extremely upset and if Alexis is headed off to jail, might Daniel Jr. be shipped back to France and Daniel headed toward another depression?
