Storyline

Tom has been appointed director of "Bombshell" after Derek leaves the show. But Tom's style and vision doesn't mesh with Karen, with who the rapport becomes quietly but openly strained. In addition, Tom doesn't feel he can use Derek's choreography, and as such the new dance numbers are insipid, especially in Jerry's eyes. Eileen works behind the scenes to regain legal production control from Jerry, but even if she does achieve this goal, it may be too late for Tom, who may be fired by Jerry, especially as he still wants Derek back at the helm. Jerry's wish may become reality as Derek is having troubles letting go of "Bombshell" from his life. Julia does whatever she can to protect Tom in this situation. Meanwhile, "Liaisons" now has as its star a non-medicated and thus non-manic Terry Falls, but that still may not be able to save the production from a critical drubbing on its opening and thus imminent closure.

Just when in the episode every Broadway show we follow seems to be going horrible by the end of the episode all the bad guys seem to lose and the good guys win. Firstly Bombshell has been a mess with Tom making it worse. Dangerous Liasions seemed to be going well but know it's over. Finally Hitlist had Derek but did not have Karen in the main female role. Bombshell was awful with Jerry and while it has Ivy as Marilyn now it could go bad or good. I was bored once again by everything to do with Bombshell and wasting the talents of a Streep daughter is not good for me. The Hitlist show seems to be in the best position because it has to be with Karen and they are boring throughout. Sean Hayes was good while on the show and his big performance was funny for me. Jerry hopefully is gone now and since the show will be over soon I will watch until the show ends I believe at the end of this season.

EPISODE GRADE: C- (MVP: Sean Hayes)
