Tom responds to her criticism by petulantly stabbing his keyboard with two fingers, like some crabby baby robot. We still don’t know why Terrible Ellis started loving Ivy a few episodes ago — but his desire to see her as Marilyn is so great that he bum-rushes Eileen and tells her that the team has made a huge mistake. In the meantime, go speculation crazy: Think Ivy went through with her Marilyn-style overdose? And I do understand love.” If his love for Karen Cartwright transforms Derek from a philandering jerk into a one-woman man, I will eat my hat. Plus, Who Will Win the Role of Marilyn? This problem is exacerbated by another glaring flaw: Ivy’s complete character assassination.

The musical played out, with Tom and Julia’s new song as the finale which was the perfect ending to the show. It is opening night - again.

Both Tom and Julia were worried that Karen was still far too inexperienced to handle the role. Then her day gets a whole lot worse — she walks into the dressing room and finds that the ring has been placed with her stuff. © Copyright 2020 Meredith Corporation. As Michael Swift sings a sad “Mr. “It’s such a good musical! Tom and Julia finished the finale song 15 minutes before the curtain was set to rise and, moments later, Karen took the stage, with Ivy in the role of Shadow Marilyn. Alas, tonight, tonight, just isn’t Ivy’s night. Who Should Play Blue Beetle in the Eventual Movie?

“Lexington and 52nd Street”! And Karen hasn’t actually performed any of these numbers as the lead before. I, too, always strip when I’m feeling particularly despondent.

What nobody else knows is that Ivy has something Karen doesn’t: the engagement ring Dev left in her room. Karen is the understudy, but understudies never get rehearsed in until after previews; Ivy, on the other hand, knows the entire part. (Yes, Dev is now allowed to watch rehearsal.

Eileen is not amused.

By contrast, Derek and Dev gaze adoringly at their girl. – Please note how Eileen holds her phone upside-down while speaking with Riedel the first time.

Luckily, nobody will care if Karen needs some extra time: “Everyone loves you here,” Julia tells her as they prepare to start rehearsing. This looks like a job for Derek’s patented Hallucination Method.

She’s mine now.” No wonder Marilyn’s last song is a reworked “Think of Me.”. And now we’ve arrived back at the beginning — the long shot that opened the episode, in which the camera plays the part of Karen running around backstage before asking, one last time, that we let her be our star. Ellis thinks that this attempted murder should inspire Eileen to promote him: “I am a producer,” he says smugly. As he touches each dress, he remembers Karen or Ivy performing a particular number. That trying is bad? 10 Things You Didn’t Know about Hayley Law, 10 Things You Didn’t Know about Charlie Plummer, 10 Things You Didn’t Know about Suzy Cortez, 10 Things You Didn’t Know about Christian Serratos. Tom and Julia’s emergency songwriting sesh isn’t going so great. Finally, he comes upon the last frock: the purple dress Karilyn has been wearing in his Prednisone-fueled fantasies. And finally, where do you think Terrible Ellis scampered off to? Karilyn, clad in another perfectly fitted sparkly gown, takes center stage and begins her final song: one more catchy, soaring Shaiman-Wittman tune called “Don’t Forget Me.” The lyrics are a little goofy — if you see someone’s hurt, or are singing “Happy Birthday,” think of… Marilyn Monroe? Of course, there are a few complications.

Back in my recap of Episode 4, I worried that Smash was stacking the deck in Karen’s favor by transforming the sweet, likeable Ivy we once knew into “a catty, cruel diva hellbent on making Karen miserable.” 11 episodes later, Ivy is even worse — she’s now a hot mess who screws up onstage, pops pills with abandon, and indulges in spiteful revenge sex just because she can. That if you’re not born with some intangible essence, you might as well give up on your dreams altogether?

Katie, unfortunately, was busy saving a whale who’s in trouble. And since we can see that Ivy sings and dances just as well as her rival, the idea that Karen’s got some enigmatic talent makes even less sense. Here’s the last thing I wrote in my notes while watching Smash‘s fittingly exasperating finale: “Guhhhhhhhh.” And you can quote me on that.

Yes, it’s true — ’tis he who slipped the wicked legumes into the Smoothie of Ill Fortune and Kale! In any case, Karen sounds wonderful — and the audience agrees, bursting into applause as Karen hits her key change.

Their next preview is in just 12 hours, but they still haven’t chosen a new Marilyn. It’s all too much for Julia, who soon starts crying.
Ivy’s final, desperate, selfish act not only strains credulity but also renders the character totally unsympathetic.

“It’s a grand old theater story,” she explains. “Whatever happens next,” he tells her, “don’t doubt you’re a star. “Movie star goes out, understudy goes in!” She forgot to include one thing: the scheming underling who finally gets his comeuppance. Proving that she’s really taking a one-way trip to Crazy Town (population: Ellis; Michael Swift; that nutty investor/rock musician who disappeared once Eileen got his money), Ivy thinks now would be a good time to give Karen relationship advice: “Men are men, and a traditional guy like Dev — bought you a ring, took you to dinner, asked you to marry him — it’s very Joe DiMaggio of him.” Yes, a traditional guy like Dev, who only proposed after he nearly cheated on you, then did cheat on you. Kidding! It’s time to see the fruits of Tom and Julia’s madcap labor. But hey — there’s more to this show than Perfect Karen and Screwed-Up Ivy. Ivy immediately ‘fesses up to her dalliance with Karen’s fiance. Julia listens and sympathetically touches Michael’s arm, timing it perfectly so that Frank sees the whole thing and storms out. The director examines Rebecca’s old Marilyn costumes, which helpfully look just like the duds we’ve seen in dream theater sequences throughout Season 1.

This quality is apparently inexplicable — which is convenient, since it saves the show from having to justify why everyone in the universe looks like they’ve seen the face of God whenever Karen opens her mouth to sing.

Karen’s voice is beautiful, and she’s moving with confidence and ease.
