The girl kept getting rejections, still holding onto hope.

 

Oliver and his director are holding auditions for their play when a woman walks in, claiming her agent notified them of her audition. There was a misunderstanding, but they let her audition anyway. She nails the audition….and it is revealed that she is none other than that little girl with a big dream. Oliver wonders where she has been.

 

Charles warns that when someone gets their dream, they might go very far to hang onto it.

 

The show jumps to a year later with Ben dying on stage with everyone panicking. Charles and Mabel wonder what is going on while Howard tries to calm Oliver down.
