Storyline

Jerry has taken production control of "Bombshell" away from Eileen because of her legal issues, although she and the show's cast and crew are unaware that he orchestrated the publicizing of her illegalities with Ellis' help. Eileen tries to figure out a way to remain part of the production team while not kowtowing to Jerry. Regardless, there will be no show if Julia can't provide a satisfactory rewrite, her job being on the line. Julia is excited about her latest draft, which was developed with Peter's help, leading up to its official read-through, that is until Tom voices his concerns to her about Peter's possible ulterior motives.

It's Reading Between the Lines ***1/2
6 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Still another enjoyable episode of this show based on the workings of trying to make a Broadway show about the late Marilyn Monroe.

The opening sequence envisioning what the first scene shall be like was most entertaining to say the least.

What is Anjelica's ex-husband trying to do? Sabotage the show? This was essentially an episode devoted to backstabbing. Everyone seems ready to cut the next person off. Only the Huston part shows some integrity and she visits Nick in prison.

As for Ivy, she is in a show with this lunatic who wants to make everything comical. Up against her dramatic performance in a rehearsed scene, we can see that there appears to be plenty of trouble ahead for this production as well.
