Episode Recap: "A Nice Day for a Posh Wedding" As far as dramedy nuptials go, this one was heavier on the drama than the comedy, more so than I expected. When Hilda told Papi that Betty had done more for him than he realized, and Daniel spied Wilhelmina's bodyguard ( Rick Fox) leaving her hotel room, suddenly the context behind the image of Betty racing down the church aisle (that I'd seen ad nauseum in promos) was fully realized. I knew then that Ignacio would discover the source of his citizenship, Betty would run to Daniel to confess so that Daniel could warn his father and attempt to save the Meade family and publishing empire. But I didn't expect Daniel's reaction to be so harsh; he didn't even listen to Betty explain why she'd held the truth from him for four months. Angered by her betrayal, Daniel claimed he couldn't trust her again. Of course that's the last thing approval-hungry Betty wanted to hear from him. No wait, it was what he said next: You're fired. And I have to say as soon as Bradford began sweating when his son pulled him aside mid-vows, I thought "heart attack." The pain in his left arm further confirmed its approach. I'm not sure I like the wedding (and episode) ending in that way, but from next week's clips, it looks like some family togetherness will come of it, and the Meades could use every bit of that. At least there were some other pleasant surprises. This episode had many great little moments, like Hilda covering for her sister's tryst with Henry by sneaking in and out of their bedroom windows; the all-American Ignacio exhibiting no fear of whatever Willy might dole out once her pact with Betty was no more; D-Meade approaching D-Dawg in attempt to get some intel but instead proving he's got no game in that department. And Marc was simply adorable, all moony over Cliff, suddenly self conscious about their relationship, jealous of a cater waiter, and ( gasp!) falling for what that scruffy "Shag Rug" had on the inside (though he deservedly graduated to the "Hardwood Floors" nickname - that boy cleans up nice!). Amanda, like the good BFF that she is, decided to look past this personal "flaw" of sudden deepness. I think my favorite moment from the presence of Posh as (soon-banished) Maid of Honor was her use of the copious "Bradelmina" wedding-related interviews to promote the Beckham 24/7 energy drink. Positively inspired, Posh. No wonder Vera Wang (in a cameo as Wilhelmina's wedding-dress designer) declared the Spice Girl as her new muse. There were lots of other names dropped as wedding guests - Hasselbeck and Rosie seated at the same table! - and Amanda attempted to work them all with her fleeting moments of fame as Fey Sommers' daughter. Somehow I don't think belting the "Milkshake" song for Quincy Jones in the fourth row will cinch a recording contract, but it may extend her 15 minutes in these days of YouTube. Another nice surprise was the appearance of Christina's husband ( Derek Riddell) from Scotland. We learned more about that relationship - including her two-year planning and saving to leave him for New York, his current illness, and his need for $100,000 for experimental treatment. I'm hoping this couple will offer us more comedy than drama in the coming weeks. We've got enough drama in the Betty/Henry goings on. Mija and Papi made up, so she's moving back home. But despite her father's promise to support her now and after Henry moves away, the reality of her choice to be with Henry and the encroaching heartache is palpable and tends to overshadow their adorkably sweet moments.
