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.

Toward the end of the episode, when Tom and Julia decide to live together, he mentions that it could be like a sitcom. This may be a subtle nod to the show Will & Grace, in which Debra Messing, who plays Julia, starred (and now stars again) where she lived with her gay best friend. See more

Jordan Roth isn't coming. Something must have happened.
Maybe he heard about Rebecca?
Maybe he read Julia's reviews?
The press are here, waiting for an announcement. If he doesn't show, they're gonna notice. I need something to distract them... while I get to the bottom of this.
