Storyline

Now that Rebecca has decided not to return to "Bombshell", the creative team, beyond the need for Tom and Julia to rewrite the ending which will include one more song, has a major decision: whether to cast Ivy or Karen in the lead role for tonight's preview, the decision which could affect the show's future. Karen is the official understudy, but the understudy, as is generally the case, does not rehearse the role until after the previews have been completed. And Ivy knows the role more comprehensively at this stage having been in the lead earlier in the project's history. This issue causes major dissension among the team. A decision is made, which only increases the tension within the creative team. It also causes a four sided issue between Derek, Karen, Dev and Ivy. Meanwhile, Ellis makes an admission to Eileen, which he did for what he believed the good of the show, but which Eileen may see differently. And Frank comes to a possible impasse in his relationship with Julia, regardless... Written by Huggo

Anything But A Bombshell in Season Finale ****
15 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first season of this hit show ends with a home run.

The beginning is just great as we see "Marilyn" walking on stage to be greeted by the famous line-break a leg, while she walks on. You wonder if it's Karen or Ivy.

Even Bernadette Peters shows up again as she is so sure that her daughter will claim the coveted part.

Ellis proves what a character he is. Guess who put nuts in Rebecca's food to cause that allergic reaction?

My favorite song sung here is the woman who howls and that men are always on the prowl. It is staged beautifully.

Ivy shows how desperate she is by causing last minute havoc by telling Karen that she slept with her beau. Derrick plays psychologist and comes to the rescue.

Of course, the show must go on and a star is born.
