The Scheming Ellis to Return to Smash

Wait! I thought we were supposed to be rid of this annoying person. TV Line breaks the bad news that, contrary to previous reports, Jaime Cepero will return to Smash as Ellis–the scheming former assistant to Tom and Eileen.

Smash show runner, Josh Safran, tells TV line that “Ellis may return, but not necessarily in the present.” Oh. So it sounds like some kind of a flashback deal, and hopefully not a big deal at all.

Smash returns to NBC on February 5, supposedly bigger and better than ever.  If the 1 hour preview is any indication, the new showrunners have made vast improvement.
