�Fey�s Sleigh Ride� will air on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21 at 12:00 noon and 12:00 midnight, ET. When Mode is forced to abandon its big Christmas photo shoot because another magazine has copied the idea, Betty forms an uneasy alliance with Marc and Amanda. The three fear they may have leaked the idea to someone at the rival mag (guest star Nicholas Gonzalez, �The OC�) during happy hour . . . and that their jobs will be history if anyone finds out. Meanwhile, Daniel and Wilhelmina reluctantly work together to come up with a new photo spread as Mode�s deadline looms, and Betty�s nephew, Justin, is oblivious to the turmoil as he spends a day at the magazine for a class project. This episode�s original premiere is on Thursday, October 19 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
�The Lyin�, the Watch and the Wardrobe� will air on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28 at 12:00 noon and 12:00 midnight, ET. It�s Halloween and Betty is in for a series of frightful experiences -- ranging from showing up dressed for the Mode costume contest . . . only to learn there isn�t one, to dealing with her growing attraction to Henry (guest star Christopher Gorham, �Jake 2.0�), while a jealous Walter fumes -- and, worst of all, tracking down a watch Daniel left at one of his many girlfriends� apartments (he just can�t remember which one). Meanwhile, Daniel pays a visit to his mom (guest star Judith Light, �Who�s the Boss?�) in rehab, and Wilhelmina is horrified to learn that she can�t fit into a designer gown.
