Episode cast overview, first billed only:


"Bombshell", "Dangerous Liaisons" and "Hit List" are all going through problems. Ivy asks Derek for advice on how to save "Liaisons" and/or her career if the show goes forward in its current direction as dictated by its star, Terry Falls. With "Bombshell", Eileen, who had the tie breaking vote - with Julia and Derek on one side, and Jerry and Tom on the other - decides to go with Jerry and Tom and go with an earlier, more commercial book draft rather than Julia's latest draft, which she and Derek feel is the best work she's ever done. In addition, Jerry wants to cut the first song Julia and Tom wrote for the show, and what Julia still feels is the emotional core of the show. And Jerry, who has just found out about "Hit List", informs Karen on the day of the first performance that her contract does not allow her to perform in the show, which if she decides to abide by Jerry's directive will leave Jimmy and Kyle in the lurch at the eleventh hour.

Smash The Fringe
12 March 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I was surprised Eileen went with Jerry but when she found out the truth of Ellis being involved I was so happy Bombshell might become a good show for Broadway. On Bombshell the blowup scene Derek had did not feel built up so it just feel flat and felt quite awkward and clunky. Then there is the small little show that went better with Karen also know having Derek as the director. Ivy's show seemed to get worse and worse but by taking the risk she was told to she got laughs as well as changing the show for the better by being brutally honest with Terry about how bad an actor he is in the horrible production that was done while he was off his medication. The re-imagination Derek had did not like good but very cheap. Julia was not good this week sad about her show only to get it back at the end which means no Julia in London with Peter. Jerry is such a boring character and awful character he is like Ellis but older meaning he is the villain so badly written he needs to go soon even though he is the producer of Bombshell for not to long anymore. Hilty's song performance was the only good thing about the episode.

EPISODE GRADE: C- (MVP: Megan Hilty)
