Will Trent is in its final push for season one. This means are only a few episodes left for us to get our Betty (and Will) fixes in.
In episode 11, Will Trent is under cover for the DEA. He is attempting to take down a massive drug operation in Macon, Georgia. Since the episode begins with him already under cover, we really don’t think that there will be many Betty moments. However, luckily for us, we did get a mid episode scene with Betty and Angie.
Over the course of this first season, we have struggled with Angie’s role in Will’s life. She has her own dark past that causes her problems. And they have a massive impact on her relationship with Will. Once again, these two seem to be headed towards disaster, and in the scene with Angie and Betty, Angie is taking the time to talk things out with the Chihuahua. It’s one of those moments where you can really connect with the character because you know she doesn’t necessarily want to talk to someone, but she needs to be able to share how she is feeling with someone (even a dog).
Of course, after her intimate moment with Betty, Angie, immediately calls up Will, even though he’s undercover. It’s clear that she needs him, even if she may be considering letting him go.
Will Trent goes undercover in “Bill Black” and that means less Betty
Will Trent is about so much more than police work or federal agents or anything revolving around crimes. This is a show about relationships as well. And that’s a big reason why we are always on Betty watch. Because of the relationship that will has with Betty, we have seen him grow as a character over this first season.
So is it any surprise that we are always looking for these moments throughout every episode, where Betty has an impact on the story in some way? Of course, we are not surprised that the scene with Angie was the only scene where we got to see our favorite Chihuahua in this episode, however, we do wish we had gotten a final moment with Will coming home and getting to see Betty again.
Honestly, we just appreciate the fact that Will Trent has consistently given us at least one scene every episode featuring a Betty moment. It means that even though the dog is not central to the story, she is still considered an important aspect of the series. She is important to Will, therefore, she is important to the story.
