Lindsay Lohan’s Ugly Betty Debut
If you were wildly anticipating Lindsay Lohan‘s guest role on Thursday’s Betty, then you might have been left in an ugly mood. The season finale delivered only a single flashback scene with the actress. She played a mean girl who used Betty Suarez as a human shield during a schoolyard game of dodge ball. (Watch a clip.) Very Hairspray. Anyway, she’ll be back in the fall. Anticipate wildly all summer, if you want.
Betty fans had nothing to complain about, though. It was a fun, campy episode — Naomi Campbell had a cameo playing softball, you know? — but light on drama. Wilhelmina landed at the top of the Mode masthead, ousting Daniel, who learned he had fathered a son with a (recently deceased) French hand model in Paris, and he and the boy bonded. Meanwhile, Betty has to make up her mind between two opposing offers: marriage, proposed by Henry, or a trip to Rome, courtesy of Gio. Only an idiot would pick Henry — but Betty’s actual decision, like Lindsay’s real performance, will have to wait for the third season. –Tom Gliatto
