Derek tries to convince Karen to get Ana to drop the suit, but Karen stands her ground. She's dressed like the conductor from Shining Time Station in this scene, by the way, and she delivers the line "It's too late, Derek. It's all coming down on you now" with all the inflection of a glass of skim milk.
Just then, Ivy calls Derek and asks if they can meet. He brushes her off without hearing why. On her end, she's at the doctor's office. Her doctor reminds her to take her prenatal vitamins while thinking about whether to end the pregnancy. Hey, I'm sure Ivy and Derek's kid would be absolutely adorable, a dynamite hoofer, and an unparalleled head case who would make his or her shrink fabulously wealthy and probably inspire some groundbreaking modern psychotherapy textbooks, but this doesn't seem like the best time for those two to start a family, you know?
In her office, Eileen extends her sympathies to Julia about her messy divorce and offers the name of her pit bull lawyer. Eh, if her lawyer was that good she wouldn't have needed Nick's filthy mob money to finance Bombshell. They commiserate about everything they've sacrificed for Bombshell -- marriages, cash, Nick's ability to move freely. Tom pops in then with the good news that he's fixed their problem with Patrick. He sent over a bottle of wine and an apology note. Eileen points out that there are rules about giving gifts to Tony nominators, but Tom brushes off her concerns, because Tom is an insufferable jackass now, for some unfathomable reason. Remember when he was nice? When he wrote songs for Sam? When he did the Darryl Zanuck song in rehearsal? What happened to that Tom?
Eileen points out all the things that are wrong with Tom's fuckheaded logic -- namely, that Patrick could disqualify Tom from Tony consideration for attempted bribery. This gets through to Tom, because it's about his precious ego, so he scampers off to go knock the delivery boy off his bicycle.
In the Hit List dressing room, Karen confronts Daisy and tells her to get the hell out of the show. Daisy just laughs and lets her eyeliner do a little of the acting when she tells Karen she paid her dues for ten years, and after all that waiting, she did what it took to land a Broadway role. Karen meebles some more pitiful shit about poor thrown-over Ana, but Daisy has tasted success (looks like she won the OCC featured actress award) and she's not letting it go. Ever. Karen's eyes unfocus when she spots herself in the mirror. Ooh, she thinks. Shiny.
