Eileen is talking to her lawyers about the legal troubles with the show when Julia barges in and says she refuses to work with Peter. Eileen hangs up and doesn't throw Julia out of her office for being a rude cow; instead, she asks what is so important that Julia is interrupting her very precarious chainsaw juggling. Julia shrieks about how Peter wants to rewrite the show and his notes were totally insane, but Eileen says she liked them. Julia can't believe Eileen was in on this (didn't Eileen hire Peter? Isn't Eileen the boss? Why does Julia act like a child all the damn time?) but Eileen says she and Peter discussed the show extensively when he saw it -- four times! -- in Boston. When Julia prepares to flounce out and have a tantrum, Eileen says she's invested everything she has in the show, and if Julia won't make it a success, she'll find someone who will. YES. BE IN CHARGE, EILEEN.
Rehearsal for "Hollywood and Vine." Karen is stumbling about dumbly while all the others dance around her and Derek stops her and explains that the song is about Marilyn realizing that being respected as an actress is different from being a star, and Karen snaps, "I understand the song, thanks." He rolls over her objections and gives her more notes, then tells them to start over. Ivy walks in and Derek asks what she needs -- just a little favor. He also wants her to watch with her "great eye" and tell them where they're going wrong. This makes Karen grind her back molars into dust, of course.
Peter is having dinner with some friends when Julia barges in, because she is actually a child who has no manners, none whatsoever, and yells at him. Daniel makes excuses to his friends and takes her outside to have an actual private conversation. She shouts about how she was trapped and how she wants specifics of his plans for her show. He's all, fine, here's what's wrong with your show: she focused on the Marilyn and DiMaggio years, making Marilyn into a housewife. Julia rambles about how the theme is Marilyn struggling to find a work-life balance and become a complete woman, and oh, great, because everyone was really yearning for a stage musical of Anne-Marie Slaughter's collected writings for The Atlantic.
