ABC's conniving fashionistas are back April 24 with five new episodes

WHEN WE LEFT BETTY Perennial underdog Betty is still smitten with Mode magazine office mate Henry, but there's the sticky issue of his ex-girlfriend Charlie's pregnancy. And is sandwich-maker Gio (Freddy Rodriguez) ever going to move on from being a friendly flirt?

WHAT'S IN STORE A love showdown in the opener. Charlie returns from Arizona to crash Betty's 24th birthday.

UGLY THOUGHT Betty, is Henry really worth the fuss?


WHEN WE LEFT THEM Editor Wilhelmina, thwarted in her plan to wed publisher Bradford Meade—oops, he died!—is having his baby by surrogate. Daniel, Bradford's son, struggles to control the company while romancing Willie's sister Renee (Gabrielle Union).

WHAT'S IN STORE Wilhelmina does her cruel best to make Daniel turn on Renee.
