While the Karen and the ensemble were boozing it up and dancing at a bar (do Broadway performers routinely drink and party during rehearsals? Just wondering.), everybody else went to a party at Nick Jonas' gigantic loft. Eileen (Anjelica Houston) tried to sell Nick her Degas drawing that her husband bought years ago. She mooned over it the entire episode saying "I'm looking at past happiness" over and over again. She and her husband are totally going to have some sort of reconciliation. Anyway, she needs $200,000.00 and the Degas is worth just about that. She gets the bucks from Nick who I guess is now a partner.
Ivy gets upset that Derek plays grab ass with a towering super model and he tells her the laughable lie that he was just trying to get the Amazon to invest in the show. Ivy buys it because the diva bitch has reverted to insecure girl. She says "I just want to feel safe" and Derek barks "then go back to the chorus. There's nothing safe about being a star!" Then he takes her upstairs for pity sex. Clearly, their days as a couple are numbered.
Tom (Christian Borle) has been set up on a date by his mother. We could all use mothers like this because the guy looks like a GQ model and he's all googly eyes for Tom. Tom must be hung like a horse because the hottest men in New York flock to him.
I could predict everything that will happen next week, but I'm getting kind of bored with it.
Editor's Note: I love Downton Abbey and didn't mean to imply otherwise. DA is a far superior show to Smash, however, this season, several characters acted in uncharacteristic ways. I'm referring Lady Edith who making out with a farmer and Cousin Isobel becoming insufferable.
