Eileen is waiting for her meeting with Jordan Roth (who is a real person) when Jerry, her terrible ex-husband, sits down across from her. She says the seat is taken and Jerry says he doesn't see Jordan, and that maybe Jordan knows Eileen doesn't have enough capital to get Bombshell to Broadway. He says he has a lot of friends. She replies that they're her friends, whom he stole, and that he saw Bombshell and realized it was better than what he was working on so he called all the theater owners and told them not to let her book the show.
She says if he wants to invest in the show, he should say so. He does. Eileen tells him to get out before she throws another drink in his face. Boo! More drink throwing, less about Julia's feelings! Real person Jordan Roth arrives and says he's offered Bombshell the St. James. Eileen gets a call from Nick, "my boyfriend," she specifies somewhat unnecessarily, and moves away, telling him they're going to Broadway. Jerry looks unimpressed and texts someone the hilariously ominous, "Time to move forward with the plan." "DONE," replies Jerry's henchman. All that's missing are the Hitchcock violins. Jerry sulks and doesn't get up out of Jordan's seat, because he is a rude jerk.
Bar. Karen and the girls are rehearsing "Let Me Be Your Star," which sounds fine. Stage manager Linda is all, clap clap clap, time for the next number, which confuses Karen, because Eileen only asked her to do the one song. Linda says Ivy and the ensemble will be performing "Smash" as well. When Linda goes over to the piano to talk to Tom, Karen stalks right past Ivy to the bar to get her purse. Ivy, who is wearing the saddest cardigan you've ever seen -- one that still manages to show all her cleavage -- and looks all downtrodden and completely without spirit, tells Karen that her being there isn't about Karen. Silly Ivy. Don't you know everything is about Karen?! Karen snaps, "No, it's about you, as usual." She stalks out and Julia -- who is sitting at the bar -- murmurs, "Just like old times."
Ivy asks Julia to be honest with her about her future with the show. She says she's committed to being a part of Bombshell when it moves to Broadway. Karen says Ivy needs to apologize to Karen for whatever happened, and Ivy says she did back in Boston. Julia says after her dirty, shameful affair with Michael Swift, she told Shrek all the time that she was sorry, but it didn't matter until she apologized for why. (Did she ever tell us why she did it? Was Michael Swift just the only one willing to excavate through the thousands of layers of earth-toned scarves?) Tom calls Ivy over to rehearse and Julia wishes her good luck.
