Meanwhile, Wilhelmina fears she's lost her edge in the fashion world because she's been spending too much time with Conner, Daniel tries giving Molly a makeover, and a new member of the Mode team makes a dramatic entrance." Guests will also include Grant Bowler as Connor Owens, Sarah Lafleur as Molly, Lauren Velez as Elena, Daniel Eric Gold as Matt, Alec Mapa as Suzuki St. Pierre and Michael Stuhlbarg as Heinrich.

In "Things Fall Apart," "Betty makes a surprising discovery when an assignment from YETI finds her and Marc analyzing Mode's budget for the past year. Meanwhile, she deals with increased attention from Matt (Daniel Eric Gold), and the knowledge that old flame Henry the accountant has posted some unexpected news on Facebook." Guests will also include Grant Bowler as Connor Owens, Sarah Lafleur as Molly, Lauren Velez as Elena, Daniel Eric Gold as Matt, Laura Heisler as Jenny and Chris Northrop as the blonde Modie.
