  • SHINING BRIGHT

    Smash: Star Power

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that "The Movie Star" was one of the most well-written episodes of Smash thus far. I've enjoyed the content of other episodes more, but in terms of interweaving stories and laying groundwork, this was a masterpiece: Hats must be tipped.

  • Episode Summary

    The arrival of Rebecca Duval does not go well and "Bombshell" is turned upside down. This leads to Ivy and Karen to try and overcome their history as they unite against their new rival. Meanwhile, Tom and Sam's blossoming romance heats up.
