When Josh Safran came in as the executive producer for “Smash” season 2, you knew that there were going to be some pretty substantial changes made almost right away to a show that was chaotic and also badly-received by many of its viewers the first time around. The other shoe dropped pretty quickly: Ellis, Dev, and Michael were all gone rather quickly, and now the show is starting over in a way while basically keeping the core of what it was supposed to be about to begin with.
Thanks to that sort of “clean slate” mentality, there are going to be some storylines from the first season that are in some ways going to be disappearing into thin air very early on in the new season. Want one example? According to TV Guide, that drug problem that we saw Ivy struggling with at times during the first season is not going to be an issue this time around at all. As a matter of fact, it’s not clear that is is being referenced in any capacity.
So does this mean that we are going to be living in a drug-free world this time around? Hardly, as another character on the show is going to be getting into the habit at some point following the February 5 return of the show, and they will be doing so rather quickly. Unless someone comes in and lends a helping hand, you know that this is probably not going to end well … and in a world where everything is so competitive, who do you think is going to be willing to actually help?
