In the season 2 episode "Zero Worship" when Betty is talking to Amanda in the secret room, she says that her mother has been dead for 6 years (the episode aired on 10th January 2008 which means that her mother would have died in 2002), yet in this episode it says on Rosa's grave that she died in 2004.

It's Finally Back!
24 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can't wait to see this and find out what happens. I've been waiting four months for this. I love this show. It was interesting to see Betty with Walter, Henry, and then Gio over the course of the show's first two seasons. I hope they have Betty be on her own for awhile and find herself instead of just picking one of the two guys she's involved with now (Walter's not coming back). If she does have a new love interest, I hope that it's someone who has nothing to do with Mode or the publishing world - Betty should keep the different areas of her life from getting too entangled with each other. There should continue to be as much of Daniel and Wilhelmina in the show as there has been in past seasons. Daniel is great - flawed, vulnerable, charming, sexy, and getting more and more nuanced - a good friend and boss for Betty. As for Wilhelmina - she's completely evil and I love to watch her be bad; she's just delicious. Long live Ugly Betty!
