Rehearsals get back underway, and Michael's wife and kid show up because apparently it's Bring Your Assorted Family Member to Work Day, instead of the crunch time that it should be. Julia looks stricken and horrified, like she momentarily had a stroke or something and forgot that Michael was married with a kid. Julia runs out and Tom follows after her, because that's obviously his job. He looks upset when she reveals that she slept with Michael. Clueless Derek just freaks out that his scriptwriter has abandoned ship less than a day before this trainwreck is supposed to reach the station.
Tattletale Ellis pulls Eileen aside to fill her in on the gossip about the Michael/Julia affair. He whispers, but he does it in the middle of a big rehearsal room. Dude, learn about revealing secrets if you want to be Harriet the Spy. She thanks him and then tells him to shut his damned trap. She threatens him if she finds out that he's been talking to anyone else. Thank the lord for Eileen.
Julia gets home and finds her 30-year-old son Leo smoking pot with his friend Mason. The one he got arrested with? Remember? Or did you try and block that subplot as much as I did? [Note: Maybe you're too busy fondly remembering psychopath Eddie from Desperate Housewives? -- Rachel.] Anyway, she tells Leo that she's got a lot going on and can't deal with his crap, but he tells her that he knows about her sucking face with Michael and that she's the devil. Teenagers.
At Ivy's apartment, her mom is sleeping over. You'd think a Tony Award-winning actress could afford a hotel, but she's sharing a bed in her daughter's teeny apartment. They are watching a Marilyn movie, because Ivy owns nothing else, and Leigh just drones on about how Ivy lacks the charisma of the screen legend. She also talks about what a good job Ivy did landing Derek, and how she should keep a hold on him since he's a director and can make her a star. So she does have more than a little in common with Mama Rose. Ivy rattles on about how she's not nervous, but the drugs are making her jittery. Of course Leigh did her Tony-winning performance without any drugs at all. This causes Ivy to start popping sleeping pills. Not that we blame her.
