Tom struggles to diffuse layers of tension in Smash’s April 2 episode, according to the latest press details from NBC.

“The Parents” sees Tom (Christian Borle) struggling to diffuse the years of tension between Ivy (Megan Hilty) and Leigh Conroy (guest star Bernadette Peters) after Leigh joins the cast of “Bombshell.”

Meanwhile, Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) and Karen’s (Katharine McPhee) connection is threatened by both Ana’s (Krysta Rodriguez) newfound success and an unexpected visitor, and Derek (Jack Davenport) learns more about Jimmy’s past just as the public sees their first piece of “Hit List.”

Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston, Leslie Odom, Jr. and Andy Mientus also star. Jesse L. Martin and Bernadette Peters guest star.

Catch Smash Tuesday April 2 (10:01PM – 11:00PM) on NBC.
