The next day, in Eileen's old office, not her unfurnished apartment, she says her composers are brilliant, but they really need a star. Tom still wants Ivy, but Eileen says it isn't going to happen. She also tells Tom and Julia they need a title. Outside the door, not lurking, but at a desk this time, Ellis is working for Eileen. Tom looks baffled. Julia says they are stuck with him.
Dev's little blackmail stuff didn't work, because somehow Dennis is untouchable. Do you care? Neither do I.
Katie has decorated her mother's apartment. She's leaving to go count wild salmon (yes, really). What a riveting plot development.
Backstage at Heaven on Earth, Tom meets with Ivy. He apologizes for not calling,and then says she hopes they didn't read the blogs. He awkwardly swallows and tearily confesses that Eileen wants a star for the part. Ivy gets it, but she's miserable about it. He invites her back to her old job at Heaven on Earth. She walks across an empty stage.
Karen is attempting to make curry, while Dev gripes about his political bad day. Her food is surprisingly decent, but going to get burned because she leaves it on the stove while they go away to have sex.
Ivy sings a Marilyn tune to herself in the mirror, when she's interrupted by knocking on her door. It's Derek; he is checking on her. He says that the business sucks and that she's beautiful. She laments being back in the chorus because she's good. He says she was better than good. She wants to know why he made Karen do his little weird performance, and he says it was a failed experiment. He's still pissed she called him bad in bed at the workshop, and then she says she lied. The two rekindle their relationship with sex. It's the cure all for everything on this show.
Next week, it looks like Ivy dies and then turns into an angel.
