Ugly Betty wrapped its run on ABC six years ago with Betty arriving in London to take on the next chapter in her life. The final moments of the series show Daniel arriving in London and searching Betty out.
For some fans, this ending meant that Betty and Daniel were on their way to happily ever after. However, America Ferrera and Silvio Horta, the showrunner of the series, spoke about the end of Ugly Betty at the ATX Television Festival over the weekend.
Ferrera said the following about the Betty and Daniel ending, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
“I do truly think that it was a special, new kind of central relationship on a show. It was about a different kid of love. If anything, betty showed him that he was good enough. … I always thought of that last scene as Daniel coming back to say thank you.”
Horta also spoke about the end of the series and how the series changed over its four season run. He said the following:
“The reality is: look beyond the title, the name. The word fades because it never really should have been there if we’re talking about who she is.”
