As NBC’s Smash lifts the curtain on Season 2 next Tuesday, Feb. 5, Karen (played by Katharine McPhee) quickly finds a new man in her life — but are her intentions business-related, or for pleasure?
In this exclusive clip from the two-hour season premiere, Brooklyn bartender/wannaba songwriter Jimmy (Newsies‘ Jeremy Jordan) blasts his partner Kyle (Carrie: The Musical’s Andy Mientus) for giving new acquaintance Karen one of their songs to sing at a bar.
When the Bombshell star tries to intervene and explain her interest in Jimmy’s work, it becomes clear that “Thank you” aren’t words she’ll be hearing anytime soon.
Will these two kids ultimately smooth things over and make beautiful music together? (Did Ellis lurk behind potted plants?) Press PLAY to watch the (wrong kind of) sparks fly.
