I wouldn't expect that Smart Trim could fix this issue. More likely there are stray frames out beyond the end of TPI's movie.
Switch to Expert view and make sure you can see all of the video tracks on your timeline. Then press the \ key (above Enter) to show your entire movie, which will likely include a lot of blank space beyond the end of your movie. Click and drag your mouse over the entire area beyond the end of your movie to snag any little clips or frame and then press the Delete key on your keyboard.
If you've captured the stray frames, when you press the \ key again, you should see only your movie on the timeline.
I see the clips in Expert, and they're audio clips, but whenever I delete them, the video file it corresponds to is deleted as well. Let me explain what I believe happened:
Every clip I sped up, the video sped up, but the audio DIDN'T.
So, say "Clip A" was 3 minutes long, but I sped it up to be 1 minute long. When you watch it over, the clip is 1 minute long, but the audio is the same speed and still 3 minutes long, so it adds 2 blank minutes to the end; (I didn't notice this until now because I made the clips silent because there's music behind it) so when I delete the audio that didn't get sped up from "Clip A," ALL of Clip A is deleted, leaving another blank space that's now THREE minutes long. I'll try now to speed up the audio clip alone and let you know how that goes. Thanks!

I'm not sure how your audio clips got so offset from their video counterparts. But if you want to get rid of them it's easy enough.
Just right-click on each one and select Unlike Audio and Video. Then select the audio clip (you may need to unselect it first to make sure you aren't selecting the video portion too) and delete it.
I don't know if it's possible to do this to all of your offset audio clips at once, but that's the solution.
Ooh! That was definitely part of it! They were also "enabled" when I right clicked them, so once I unlinked them, I ALSO had to "disable" them but that solved the problem! Thank you so much!
Please mark this question as answered, TPI. Thanks!
