  • Mode’s getting a new editor! Her name’s Amber, she’s in her 20s, she’s Asian, and is a master at the backhanded compliment. Casting is under way. Also, I’m hearing (and already laughing) about a possible Mob subplot involving Hilda. Source: The Ausiello Files

  • Series creator Silvio Horta reveals about next season: We’re going to explore [Justin’s sexuality]. He’ll be going to high school and getting older, so we’ll definitely be exploring that.

Ausiello: Not only is he returning, but sources confirm to me exclusively that he’s been promoted to a full-fledged series regular! But don’t take that to mean Matt and Betty will reunite and live happily ever after. In fact, I hear Betty producers are already cooking up a fresh obstacle for the pair, and rumor has it they want him to be lovable and blue collarish. (Think Seth Rogen only much cheaper.)

‘Ugly Betty’ scoop: The braces are coming off!

Are you looking at Matt and Betty as a long-term couple?
SILVIO HORTA:
As long-term as it gets in TV. As with any romance, there will be obstacles as well as some misunderstandings before the finale, and it’s going to lead to some juicy stuff next year. Matt’s going to be around and their relationship is going to be changing and growing.

How significantly will Henry’s return threaten their relationship?
HORTA:
They’ve both moved on, but they obviously are still an important part of each others’ lives and that’s going to become a complication. There’s going to be feelings of insecurity on Matt’s side, and there are some unresolved things between Henry and Betty.

Speaking of Betty’s exes, might we see Gio again?
HORTA:
Potentially, but there are no plans at this point.

Will the issue of Justin’s sexuality be addressed next season?
HORTA:
Yeah, we’re going to explore stuff. He’ll be going to high school and getting older, so we’ll definitely be exploring that.

Will Marc find love after Cliff?
HORTA:
We’ve been discussing it. We haven’t started breaking the exact stories for next year, but that’s one of the things we’ve really talked about. We want to see [Marc and Amanda’s] love lives.

How would you characterize Ashley Jensen’s departure? Was it mutual?
HORTA:
It was mutual. She’s amazing. From the get-go, we found some really good stories for her, but we never found enough to service her character the way we wanted to and the way she wanted to. She wanted to do more, but it was [difficult] with a large ensemble like this to give her more. I hope in the future she’ll come back. She’s an important part of the show.

Will Christina get a satisfying send-off?
HORTA:
She will. Next week’s episode will [set things in motion] with Wilhelmina’s baby – or her supposed baby – and it’s going to lead to a lot of complications.

Ana Ortiz gives birth in June. Will we see less of Hilda at the start of next season due to her maternity leave?
HORTA:
We may write her a little lighter in the beginning, but we’re not writing her out or anything.

Who is Rachel Dratch playing in the finale?
HORTA:
She’s playing a dual role. She’s playing Penny Meadows, an editor at Mode, and she’s also playing Mindy Meadows, her twin sister. It’s a one-time guest stint, but she was great.

The most asked Ugly Betty question from my readers: When is Betty getting her braces off?
HORTA:
Her braces will be off by the end of next season. Next year, there’s going to be a progression in her look overall. It’ll still be Betty, but you’ll see some growth in that direction.

    Gio has a HUGE fanbase. I don’t understand why they would get rid of a character (fingers crossed he WILL return) who is loved by so many.
    I’m serious when i say that by having Gio in less and less episodes and Matt in more and more that the viewers of the show are going to go down.
    Everyone i know who watches Ugly Betty adore Gio, and detest Matt. He’s bland and boring.

    WHY WOULD YOU GET RID OF GIO?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    I was already angry that he’d only get one episode in season 3, and then when people said he might not come back EVER AGAIN… well, you can guess how I felt…
    Here in the UK, we haven’t met this Matt yet, but from what I’ve heard, he’s very yawn-worthy. And to hear that he’s been made a regular when Gio’s not – what is up with that?!
    I swear, Gio MADE Ugly Betty in season two. And C.S is right – everyone loves Gio!!! Getty is the best ‘ship by far! If Gio’s not in UB any more, I’m not gonna watch.
    Until we find out for sure that he’s not coming back, I can still live in hope that we’ll see him again AS A REGULAR. Wake up, Silvio!

    Bring back Gio!!!!! Pretty please?

    Gio is my favorite character, and he is perfect for Betty ! I hope he will be back in season four !

    Pleasssssssssssssse !

    Hey. I’m with you guys! Actually, I’m from Poland, so I’ve only watched up to season two, but you’re right – Gio sets the show on a completely different level! He’s great, and the chemistry between him and Betty is undeniable. You know, before I’ve watched season two, I was a complete Betty/Daniel fan, but Gio is the best choice! Bring him back! Freddy Rodriguez does a great job. It’ll be a shame if we didn’t see him any more. As for Henry – never liked him. This whole ‘dorky love’ thing is just wrong. And boring…

    Personally, I could care less of Gio. I’m still set in stone for Daniel and Betty. Please, please, consider it…

  8. beatrice1979

     /  September 7, 2009

    I want Gio back. I am okay with “potentially”. He has to return back.
    I dislike the whole Matt/Betty affair. Gio was fun in the screen. I want him back to stay for a long time.

  9. I MISS GIO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There is a murder in episode 3 season 4. Filmed on a boat in Battery Park City North cove. Willie !!!!

  11. Jenna

     /  September 17, 2009

    I want Gio back too! He was such an ejoyable character. I enjoyed the diversity of Betty’s romances so far, but I’m getting tired of seeing Henry around. He’s just getting irritaiting. I understand why they kept Matt, but it isn’t any fun watching him with Betty. Their interaction is very stale. Jesse was just unpleasant. PLEASE bring Gio back!! He brought an element to the show that really got people watching it. I probably would never have watched it at all if I hadn’t seen a scene with Gio and Betty and wanted to know about what was going on.

  12. just give up on that gio bull*. i hate the henry story lines. but getting gio back would be just wrong. and a huge BLAH. just like the s3 finale with the henry shite. a BLAH.

     /  September 30, 2009

    Oh, my goodness. I really fall in love Gio. Before I saw him on that show, I was not a big fan of U.B. However, Gio made me crazy for this story so bad. I want him back. Please, make him come on that show again! I love “love triangle”

  14. ChickChack

    Gio’s coming back is certainly not going to be like Henry’s coming back. Henry is different from Gio which is why many people were like-what the hell? when he came back at the end of season 3. Gio is not a shy character, quite dynamic, and homogenous in any situation which Henry’s isn’t. Henry is shy and awkward plus his history with Betty made his reapparition quite uncomfortable to watch.
    Gio on the other side could blend in any storyline easily and he can bring more fun in the show. Plus even though I do not want him to be the “rebound” guy, he would be Betty’s perfect rebound guy after that weird Matt guy.
    Gio’s chemistry with Betty is also undeniable unlike Matt’s who is quasi-inexistant. In short, Gio needs to be brought back, one season or the other.

    I wish David Blue to be back in the serial. And after all he became more popular because of his role in “Ugly betty”, didn’t he? Don’t understand was it the screen script to remove Cliff or an actor’s decision.
    Well, and may be I’m not ready for seeing Marc with anybody else.

  16. Please! Bring Gio back! I didn’t even watch Season 2 completely, but after seeing the clips of Gio..I was changed in a very profound way….

  17. Bettyfan

     /  December 1, 2009

    Still no Gio back in Season 4 – it’s like all the sex appeal and excitement walked out of Betty’s door with him.

    Bring him back!! Even their fights were brimming with uncontrolled passion, and a passionless Betty is about as interesting as a twig in some foil (see catwalks). Sure it’s shiny and makes an interesting crinkly sound, but you’re not compelled to watch it for very long…

    So far none of the other love interests get under Betty’s skin or put the danger back in romance like Gio did! Any chance we’ll see him spin her around on the dancefloor a few more times?

    Mind you I can’t see him coming in as the soppy eyed boyfriend, but I’d love to see some of the fireworks of him trying to be again.

  18. Mat should come back from Africa and marry Betty! Please Please Please!!!!!!!!

  19. Matt and Betty have to get married! I know that Bobbi and Hilda are getting married! ❤

  20. I know that Bobbi and Hilda are getting married! ❤
