Smash – 1×14 – Previews – Recap
The first previews of Bombshell are about to be shown to its first ever audience. The show is rocked by Derek sleeping with Rebecca and Dev sleeping with Ivy. How long before Karen finds out? My guess is probably next week.
During the preview, we get to see the new duet Karen and Ivy perform on. It’s interesting. All about the pressures of Hollywood and sleeping with directors. Something both of these girls are familiar with. It ends with Karen belly flopping onto some guy’s crotch. Yeah. Hm. It’s not my favorite. The ending of the show isn’t anyone’s favorite. The final scene of the show shows Marilyn committing suicide. When the curtain falls, not one person applauds. Awkward.
They have to come up with a new ending fast. This is going to be difficult because Julia isn’t speaking to Tom. She needs to get over it. He’s a good friend. And he didn’t force you to have an affair and destroy your family. You did that. Twice. Yet somehow, Julia lets Tom have it and blames him for her life. At least she was able to grow a spine and tell Michael “No.”
Dev comes back from New York to see Karen and she tells him to propose to her again. Don’t you see? She’s not in Tech! So it’s okay. Too bad he left the ring in Ivy’s room. What’s more interesting than this? An Anjelica Houston performance! And it’s fabulous. She slays them all. I love her.
In a shocking turn of events, Rebecca has her daily smoothie and is rushed to the hospital. Someone spiked it with peanuts. What the hell? Peanut allergies are the worst! You could die. Someone poisoned her. Was it Ellis? Was it Ellis and Ivy? Take Ellis instead! Rebecca tells Karen she’s too scared to go back on the stage. What does this mean for the show? Who will play Marilyn?
