On this week's Smash, everything changes for the three musicals. Only two will survive. Which one will fail?

Just out of curiosity . . . How can Hudson's character is hardly a 'threat' to Ivy and Karen personally, unless Derek and co decide to be really out their with their recasting of the Marilyn role. I think it's more that she and a lot of the new characters are tied into this new musical, which is a threat to Bombshell as a whole.

since there is a new showrunner maybe he changed he changed their mind on Julia getting pregnant

With Julia possibly pregnant..........why no Frank and Michael????? Maybe she isn't pregnant....
