Roger all but accuses Derek of being a Svengali. Still later, Roger sees composer-lyricist Jimmy Collins (Jeremy Jordan) in a leather jacket! Roger gets the picture. He misjudged Derek. Little does he know that Derek still carries a torch for the starlet daughter, and that Jimmy is a drug user and former drugrunner. But that's another story.
(By the way, Baker's real-life wife, Becky Ann Baker, who played Karen's mom in Season One of "Smash," is absent in this episode. She also plays Hannah's mom in HBO's hot series "Girls," which, like "Smash," is also shot in New York. Coincidentally this week, Dylan Baker resurfaced in the recurring role of scummy Colin Sweeney on the CBS series "The Good Wife.")
