Ugly Betty Season 4 Episode 19 s04e19 The Past Presents the Future – Synopsis
In this episode of Ugly Betty, Betty asks Daniel to go to Hilda’s wedding with her, Amanda wants to fix Marc up with her new client, Betty considers unexpected offers, Wilhemina uses Tyler as a pawn to fight the Meade empire.
Betty Suarez is a courageous, good-hearted, and slightly naive girl from Queens, New York who is sorely lacking in fashion sense. She is abruptly thrust into a different world when she lands a job at Mode, a trendy high fashion magazine based in Manhattan that is part of the publishing empire of the wealthy Bradford Meade. Bradford's son Daniel has just been installed as Editor-in-Chief of Mode following the death of Fey Sommers (Bradford's longtime mistress). Bradford hires Betty as his son's newest personal assistant in an attempt to stop his womanizing son from sleeping with another attractive assistant. As time goes by, Betty and Daniel become friends and help each other navigate their professional and personal lives.
Life at Mode is made difficult for both Betty and Daniel by their co-workers. Their most serious threat comes from Creative Director Wilhelmina Slater, a vindictive schemer who devises numerous plots to steal Daniel's job and seize control of his family's company. Other conflicts are generated by Wilhelmina's loyal assistant Marc St. James and Mode receptionist Amanda Sommers, who continually mock and humiliate Betty for her lackluster physical appearance and awkward nature. Fortunately, not everyone at Mode is against Betty: she gains loyal friends in kind-hearted Scottish seamstress Christina McKinney and nerdy accountant Henry Grubstick. Betty also receives strong support from her father Ignacio, older sister Hilda, and her nephew Justin.

On January 27, 2010, ABC had confirmed that the series will be ending in April, at the same time as reducing the season length from 22 to 20 episodes.
The opening episode of the series began with 9 main cast members. The titular character and main protagonist of the show is Betty Suarez (America Ferrera), a recent college graduate looking to break into the publishing business. The show also strongly focuses on her boss Daniel Meade (Eric Mabius), a wealthy playboy who is given the position of editor-in-chief of Mode by his father, the magazine's owner. The show's main antagonist is Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams), Mode's creative director, who constantly schemes to usurp Daniel's position at Mode and take over the his family's publishing empire.
Other major characters on the show include Betty's family – father Ignacio Suarez (Tony Plana), a caring man with health and immigration problems who is a master cook; older sister Hilda Suarez (Ana Ortiz), a single working mother; and nephew Justin Suarez (Mark Indelicato) a flamboyant teenager highly interested in fashion and Broadway musicals. Betty's fellow Mode employees also make up some of the main cast – receptionist Amanda Tanen (Becki Newton), who has a fling with Daniel during the early part of the first season, seamstress Christina McKinney (Ashley Jensen), who becomes Betty's best friend, and Bradford Meade (Alan Dale), father of Daniel, owner of Meade Publications.
Marc St. James (Michael Urie), Wilhelmina's openly gay assistant and Walter (Kevin Sussman), Betty's uninspiring boyfriend, were both promoted from guest star to main cast midway through season one. Alexis Meade (Rebecca Romijn) also joined the main cast – a male to female trans-gendered woman and Daniel's older sibling.
Sussman left in Season 1. The second year also saw two more previous guest stars joining the main cast – Henry Grubstick (Christopher Gorham), accountant at Mode and Betty's new love interest, and Claire Meade (Judith Light), Daniel and Alexis's mother, Bradford's wife. Halfway through the season, Bradford dies of a heart attack.
During Season 3, Henry, Alexis, and Christina left the show (so far, both Henry and Christina have made return appearances as guest star). There were no new additions to the main cast this season, however this season saw many recurring celebrity guest stars, including Bernadette Peters, Adriana Lima, Shakira, Lindsay Lohan, Christine Baranski and Mark Consuelos.
