With Tom directing "Bombshell," it quickly became a struggle for him and Karen to get on the same page. After all, she was Derek's muse. Tom's muse was, and always had been, Ivy. In an episode of "Smash" filled with conflict resolution, Karen made the big decision to abandon "Bombshell" and join Derek on the new project with Jimmy and Andy.
As for Ivy, her production with Terrence officially became a bomb, so they decided to go out with one final and memorable performance. It just happened to be the performance everybody was at, and no one could believe what they were seeing. Terrence's broad comedy had jaws on the ground, but it also made the production certain to end, freeing Ivy to find her way back to Marilyn Monroe.
Even Eileen found a way to get Jerry to give "Bombshell" back to her. She used their daughter to play on his emotions. By the end of the episode, everyone was where they should be. Ivy was headed back to work with Tim, Julia and Eileen on "Bombshell" while Derek and Karen were collaborating with Jimmy and Andy on their fresh new piece.
The new direction of "Smash" continues on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC -- for now. Starting, April 6, "Smash" has been punted to Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET to finish out its season.
