Ugly Betty - Christmas in October

Fey's Sleigh Ride

An amusing episode where Amanda, Marc and... GASP... Betty must bond together to lie and protect about leaking the big Christmas spread for Mode magazine to rival Isabella magazine. Wilhelmina and Daniel must bond together to create a new plan for the Christmas spread, all while the music box shows up in Daniel's hand, and we find out that there were two, one originally for Fey and one for Daniel's mother.

Except, did I miss when Wilhelmina stole the music box? Was I just not paying attention or does it have anything to do with the fact that this episode was actually intended to be the 6th episode, with the original 4th episode moved to Novemeber sweeps, and the 5th, 7th and 8th episodes to follow over the next few weeks. What was that move for? I'm talking to you ABC? The rhythm felt off, since Marc and Amanda's tolerance to Betty was much lower, Betty's self confidence was higher than normal, and Daniel's hair was dyed much darker. Why the skip?

Watching Marc bond with Justin (as he glorious spent a day (or two) at Mode) was heartwarming and started to show some depth into Marc aside from his hilarious one-liners. There was also more about Betty's fathers HMO and discovering he had been using a deadman's Social Insurance Number, and Walter wooing Betty.
