Storyline

Personal relations between Tom and Ivy are still strained, into which Ivy brings the cast onto her side. Wanting to mend their friendship, Tom, at the last minute as he reminded of the date, asks his friend and Ivy's idol Liza Minnelli to provide a surprise to Ivy for her birthday later that evening. Beyond Ivy already having made arrangements with her cast mates to celebrate her birthday without Tom, the evening has the potential to be a disaster for all concerned, which includes Eileen and Richard, who are testing the waters of a personal relationship. Meanwhile, Jimmy and Karen have embarked on a sexual relationship, but Karen wonders if Jimmy not wanting to tell anyone about it is a red flag. And Derek contemplates being honest with Karen about his feelings for her. While these three struggle with their as of yet unknown romantic triangle - at least unknown to Karen - Scott, Julia and Kyle work on the show without them. Their close working relationship may reignite romantic ... Written by Huggo
