Series Creator Bids Goodbye to Ugly Betty

at .

When all was said and done on Ugly Betty last night, our favorite magazine editor chose... nobody.

She picked up, moved to London... and ran into Daniel. Dinner was planned between the pair, but viewers were left in the dark about how it ended.

Why did series creator Silvio Horta go this route? How does he feel now that it's all over? He went into detail about the show in an interview with TV Guide:

On Betty and Daniel's future: They've been there for each other for the entire course of the series and to end with that possibility  and what I think you end with is a possibility - with anyone but Daniel seemed off. Are they together after that? I don't even want to say. I have my version in my head of what happens after she walks away from him, but I think everyone can have their own interpretation.

A Finale Shot

On casting Bryan Batt: I'm just a huge fan of his from Mad Men; he's a terrific actor. That was one story line that some people were like, "Do we need to reopen that?" and for me, it was way overdue. I wanted to answer that one question. It was egregiously left open.

On the soft side of Wilhelmina: Wilhelmina will always be Wilhelmina, but over the course of the series there have been times when we've seen a lot of that softer side. But I think on the show, as in real life, people are what they are. If you were to imagine these characters beyond the series, she's not going to become a saint.
