Julia has returned from her hiatus, but is not talking to Tom, who she believes should have stuck up for her in demanding that Michael not return to the show.

...And the Series Dwindles Down to A Precious Few ***1/2
8 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Derrick is a real Romeo. He seems to love his 3 ladies-Rebecca, Karen and Ivy. I just loved when he told Karen that he has to please Rebecca as she is the lead in the show. That's a new one.

The highlight of the episode was Angelica Huston's rendition of the September song. That alone makes me wait for anticipation when September actually shall roll around. Was that really Miss Huston belting out that wonderful song? And the days dwindle down to a precious few-September, November! ...And these few precious days I'll spend with you, these precious days I'll spend with you. These are exactly my sentiments for this entertaining series.

Also, are we all going nuts? Who caused Rebecca to have that allergic reaction causing her to bow out of the show? Her previews in Boston weren't all that bad. The leading lady and understudy will be subject to suspicion.
