I think he may have intended "opening for him" in a good way, like it's still something they can do together and it would give her additional exposure, but yeah, he could've phrased it better or waited on that offer. Read the room, Pete. That wasn't going to go over well.
i thought maybe he was going to have a Curb Your Enthusiasm Larry does Broadway freeze type moment before killing it on stage because he'd be flustered about changing up his act to meet the NACA requirements, but Pete flourished in that setting. He's being smart for once about his career and making some real progress. Of course, the show's called Crashing...
I'm enjoying these past few episodes far more because we're actually seeing him perform and growing professionally instead of all of that sad sack/mooching/general idiocy from the first half of the season.
The roasting competition looks like it could be fun. Loved his fearful, wide-eyed "Oh...Oooh!" look in the preview.
