It's a mystery that goes way back, as in all the way back Smash's pilot episode. Exactly why do Derek and Tom hate each other's guts so much?
In this first look at tonight's episode, "The Coup," we finally get our answer. And lo and behold, it ain't pretty…
It's no secret that Tom (Christian Borle) and Derek (Jack Davenport) hate each other, but we were never really given the reason why. But in tonight's episode of Smash, everything comes to a head when both men have it out and reveal why they just can't seem to get along. And just wait for the the most surprising (and heartbreaking) reveal…it comes from Tom at the end of the clip.
Thankfully, Smash will be getting another season, so we can count on more drama from Tom and Derek. Check out the clip below to get the full story behind their smashed (get it?) bromance.
Smash airs tonight on NBC (E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family).
