Season 1, episode 2 recap of Reboot

Hannah's original cast promises to have her back, as shown in the opening scene. Gordon argues with his daughter, stating that the script isn't that funny. Hannah emotionally fights back, saying she wants to tell the truth and to follow the script that she wrote. Gordon compromises, allowing them to do the read through as a test run.

Elaine, Zack's mother, sits in the audience, and a new cast member arrives on set. Timberly Fox will play Whitney, Reed's estranged daughter, although the crew seems to still adore her.

Zack's mother ruines her son's confidence on set as he tries to impress a staff runner. He agrees, but starts a sexual relationship with the woman. He leaves the trailer in a stupor and tells Reed of the awkward rendezvous.

Hannah falls for one of Gordon's lazy quips and Timberly accidentally reads her stage directions out loud. Reeds responds with similar complaints and Gordon cleverly manipulates the thespian. He tells the egotistical actor to take Timberly under his wing and teach her how to act. It's a wacky gag, playing into Reed's pretentious ways.

Reed gets through to Timberly, and her acting begins to improve, while Bree remains envious, planning to sabotage all of Timberly's progress. Reed told her to think internally and focus on her role, while Bree instructed the reality TV star to make big, broad hand gestures and to think of the external.

The end

Gordon has purposefully altered the emotional final scene at the last minute. He doesn't believe Timberly is up to it, but has also re-created the popcorn scene that Hannah had previously rewritten. In the meantime, Clay sleeps with Zack's mother, and Reed lets Bree know how she has ruined his big moment. Bree replies that this is Hollywood, not dog eat dog.

Timberly finds Timberly crying in the bathroom before her first performance. She's confused by Reed's advice and is expressing her opinions. Bree encourages her co-star to be self-assured with lots of compliments and then watches Timberly execute her scene perfectly. Gordon uses the scene again to finally apologize to Hannah via his actors, revealing something he could never say aloud.

Hannah tries to apologize to Gordon after the show, but he did not want to overshoot it. He held his ground somewhat on purpose. Hannah is genuine touched by the sentiment, but she apologizes herself. He has filled his car with popcorn as a prank, bringing an excellent conclusion to the episode.
