Crush’d Recap

by Lynn Little

Betty’s crush on her neighbor causes her to do a lot of work this episode. Is Jesse really worth all of Betty’s efforts? The jury is still out on that but from what I’ve seen of Jessie, I would have to say no. This episode really highlights just how different Jesse is from Betty’s other romantic interests. Jesse seems more needy and so creates a different dynamic.

Amanda has been kicked out of her apartment and is living at Mode. That ends and so she shows up at Betty’s door looking for a place to stay. This is bad timing since Betty was planning to have Jessie over to cheer him up since he is down and out about his music career. Betty has to cancel her plans with Jessie.

Later, Betty attempts to ask her neighbor Jessie to a Mode party but he takes it as she is asking his band to play at the party since he had confided in her about being depressed. She doesn’t have the heart to correct him and so winds up throwing a separate Mode party on her roof.

The party is a huge success. Jessie is happy and seems to be into Betty. However, Betty later catches Jessie and Amanda making out. She gets mad and tells Amanda she needs to leave.

Meanwhile, Cliff asks Marc to move in with him. Marc is obviously against the idea, maybe scared of commitment? He puts off answering him and at Betty’s party, Marc cheats on Cliff. Cliff shows up at the party and then out of guilt, Marc asks Cliff to marry him.

Wilhemina learns the truth about Connor - but seems to get over it and develops a huge crush on him. She takes their situation as flirting until Connor mentions a he has a fiancee. Willie looks sad at Betty’s party after she learns this bit of news. The party ends but Willie stays.

Amanda apologizes to Betty and says she didn’t know that Jessie was her crush. They talk it out and Betty lets Amanda stay. Betty then heads to the roof to start cleaning up. Willie calls her over and they share a beer. It’s a real touching moment as both of these women are basically in the same boat when it comes to their love interest.
