Storyline

After a successful run in Boston with Karen in the lead, "Bombshell" seems destined for Broadway, making Karen a Broadway superstar. As such, Karen is now part of the show's power team, and, based on advice she gets from Broadway star Veronica Moore, she can make whatever requests she wants to protect the material. Despite most of the cast and crew being automatically rehired for the Broadway run, Karen has the power to dismiss Ivy, who not only tried whatever she could to thwart Karen's success, but was also the reason for her break up with Dev. Ivy, in turn, does whatever she can to secure her place in the show. The road to Broadway may not be a totally smooth one as Eileen's personal life takes its toll on her professional life. Meanwhile, Julia, who has not read the reviews, is unaware that her contributions were the one heavily criticized area of the show. But she and Frank try to repair their marriage following Julia's affair, which may continue to preoccupy her thoughts. Written by Huggo

Smash is An Opening Season 2 Sensation ****
5 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a great beginning to the new season for this marvelous show.

"Bombshell" seems to be a hit in Boston and is certainly coming to Broadway when the roof falls in.

Anjelica Huston's funding is being investigated by the government and all assets to the show are frozen. When the Debra Messing character discovers that husband Frank was kissing another woman, he blows up and reminds everyone of her past indiscretion and that Derrick goes to bed with each girl wanting to be a star.

Everything is in turmoil.

Jennifer Hudson appears as a two time Tony Award winner and she continues to belt out those songs. There is a brief appearance by Harvey Fierstein.

Ivy and Karen go back and forth in winning the affection of Derrick, who in this episode may very well be forced to come back down to earth.

Wonderful start for the new season for this highly entertaining show.
