Days later, I still can’t get over the fact that NBC killed Kyle in Smash. Just when I was slowly falling in love with his character, they decided that he should emulate Jonathan Larson, the composer/playwright who died right before Rent’s first preview. It was sudden and unexpected just like Larson’s death. I felt like they didn’t show enough of Kyle’s character until the end which is a big shame. However, while it saddens me that he’s not part of the show anymore, I do understand why they did it.
I just wish they also developed Tom and Kyle’s relationship before the accident happened. The last episode, “The Phenomenon”, showed clips on their relationship and it was endearing.

On a side note, Derek and Karen tried to get it on but failed. Maybe there just isn’t enough spark. Also.. I would love for them to kill Jimmy because his character irritates me to no end.
