***Series Finale***

It’s the end of an era, but the beginning, Betty (America Ferrera) hopes, of something wonderful. In the award-winning series’ finale, which also features appearances by familiar faces from the past, Betty finds it hard to tell Daniel (Eric Mabius) important news about her future. When she does, his reaction surprises her, but not Claire (Judith Light). Justin (Mark Indelicato) and Bobby (Adam Rodriguez) enthusiastically consider taking advantage of a softening real estate market by apartment-hunting in Manhattan, but Hilda’s resisting even the most amazing places. Amanda (Becki Newton) grapples with the death of her dog, Halston, and Marc (Michael Urie) wonders if he’ll ever have a successful relationship.

Against the backdrop of Ignacio’s (Tony Plana) multi-culti holiday dinner that he prepares for his new flame Jean (Faith Prince), Betty (America Ferrera) and Hilda (Ana Ortiz) have pregnancy scares. Worse, they purchase their Be-Shure instant pregnancy tests from the local pharmacy where Jean works and Ignacio is shopping. Meanwhile, Hartley (Daniel Eric Gold) installs Willie’s replacement, a clueless Hollywood mogul, Denise Ludwig (Nadia Dajani), whose claim to fame is a tacky movie, but Marc (Michael Urie) has a plan to get Willie back — if only Daniel (Eric Mabius) will agree. And Claire (Judith Light) gets Amanda’s (Becki Newton) help and tracks down Tyler (Neal Bledsoe), the son she long ago gave up for adoption.

Betty (America Ferrera) is overwhelmed with her editorial work, so Wilhemina (Vanessa Williams) assigns Marc (Michael Urie) to be Betty’s temporary assistant. Betty’s story idea to cover the worst jobs in New York goes south when she has to dress up as a hot dog and do a Bollywood dance number. Meanwhile, Marc frets that he’ll never be taken seriously by his idol at Vogue magazine, Hilda (Ana Oritz) gets Archie’s campaign in trouble, Daniel (Eric Mabius) hires a gorgeous but inept assistant (supermodel Brooklyn Decker), and Natalie introduces Daniel to the Community — a group whose charismatic leader (Dylan Baker) zeroes in on Daniel.

Ugly Betty struts back to Citytv for an exciting fourth season of fashionista rivalries, romances, scandals, sarcasm and laughter. Don’t miss the special two hour premiere event as Betty moves to its new night on Friday, October 16 at 8:00 pm ET/PT (7:00pm CT, 9:00pm MT) on Citytv!

In part one of the season premiere episode “The Butterfly Effect” Betty (America Ferrera) finds that everything is changing as she begins her new job as associate features editor, especially since her boss is her ex-boyfriend, Matt Hartley (Daniel Eric Gold), who is still unhappy about their breakup.  Betty’s new officemate, Megan (Smith Cho), openly resents her, while Marc (Michael Urie) is constantly undermining her because he felt he was more deserving of the promotion. Claire Meade (Judith Light) is finding that her power struggle at the company has her sitting pretty – for the moment — opposite Wilhemina (Vanessa Williams), who lost her claim to the Meade throne last season. But Wili has perhaps an even bigger problem than job security — she is harboring a secret at home that is driving Marc to distraction.

In “The Butterfly Effect,” Part 2 Betty gets to run her own Mode photo shoot at the United Nations to promote their anti-malaria initiative, “Nothing but Nets,” but her big opportunity becomes a baptism by fire when Daniel’s (Eric Mabius) neediness takes its toll, and Matt openly demoralizes her. Meanwhile, Amanda (Becki Newton)does some soul-searching when she bonds with Daniel’s new temp, Helen (Kristen Johnston), a career receptionist as fabulous as Amanda is. Wili makes it her personal mission to protect a loved one.
