In her dressing room, Rebecca is telling her shrink on the phone that no one applauded and that she basically died onstage last night. Karen, of course, overhears, because she's just completed her correspondence certificate at the Ellis Boyd School of Convenient Eavesdropping. Karen says it wasn't Rebecca's fault that no one applauded, and Rebecca says, "I'm the star. It's all my fault." She overrides Karen's disagreement, and says that if it weren't true, Karen would be Marilyn. No, Ivy would be Marilyn. Rebecca observes, in wry Cristal Connors fashion, that there's always someone younger coming up behind you and that Marilyn knew that and it almost drove her crazy. Rebecca is sipping her kale smoothie all this time and something about the taste seems to be off, because she keeps grimacing and wiping her mouth. Smoothie of Death! Karen blathers about how it's just previews and then Rebecca begins choking. Karen screams for help, with the always useful "Call somebody, you guys!" If that last bit doesn't end up on The Soup I may cry.
Derek tells the company that Rebecca's in the hospital, sedated, and tonight's and tomorrow's previews are canceled. Apparently she had an allergic reaction to peanuts. He tells everyone they'll be working on the ending and that under no circumstances should anyone Tweet. Sam tells the other dancers he's planning to go to church and several others say they will join him to pray their jobs don't disappear.
Eileen meets Randall and asks if there's anything new about Rebecca's condition. Randall begins shrieking about how careful Rebecca is with her peanut allergy and says that someone has deliberately poisoned her. Eileen advises they wait and see what Rebecca says when she's awake.
In the hotel lobby, Derek tells Eileen, Julia and Tom that he wouldn't put it past Ivy to poison Rebecca and maybe Karen helped. His total asshole behavior in this episode is making Jack Davenport ever so slightly less devastatingly attractive to me. Tom protests and Derek lamely claims that he's kidding. Eileen says she'll do damage control with the press and that Julia and Tom need to work on the new ending. Julia asks what they'll do if Rebecca doesn't recover before the next scheduled preview, because Karen hasn't had enough time to learn the role. Tom suggests that Ivy knows the entire role. Eileen tells them to write the song and they'll discuss this later.
