Totally agree with that sentiment for last week's episode, with Ivy's Don't Forget Me and the Karen/Ivy That's Life duet. This week, however, I think the story-line made Jimmy's song at the end that much more poignant (for me) than it would have been hearing it out of context.
Story-line, schmory-line ...they can give it to me anyway they want ... I'll just soak it up.
I try not to compare episodes, but I agree with you in that last week's was ... special.
