This Wednesday, March 29th at 8p ET/ 5p PT, the second season of the award-winning drama Bomb Girls is coming to Reelz, with the season's first two episodes airing back to back. We can't wait to see the new episodes and find out what our favorite VicMu girls, Gladys (Jodi Balfour), Lorna (Meg Tilly), Kate (Charlotte Hegele), Betty (Ali Liebert) and Vera (Anatasia Phillips), are up to. They all had plenty going on when season one of Bomb Girls came to a close. Gladys' fiance had enlisted in the Army and her parents were livid that she had been working on the factory floor for months. Meanwhile, Lorna took a pregnancy test that came back positive after her interlude with Marco, and to make matters worse, her daughter, Sheila, seems to have a crush on Marco, too. Vera managed to gather up her courage and head back to the factory, and while she couldn't do her old job anymore, she may have found a new one. Kate's abusive father uncovered her whereabouts and convinced her to leave her job and her new life, which broke the besotted Betty's heart

Sometimes, character exposition is doled out slowly in a long, meandering series of probing sequences. Other times, storytellers cut right to the heart of the characters in a very short amount of time. Bomb Girls most definitely fits into the latter category.
In this new three-minute clip from the original series about a group of women working in a bomb factory during WWII, we find out all the essentials about what's going on in the lives of Gladys (Jodi Balfour), Lorna (Meg Tilly) and Kate (Charlotte Hegele). Though Gladys lives a life of wealth and privilege, only a few moments with her character reveal that she can't get everything she wants with looks and money. Lorna needs her job, even though it adds another degree of difficulty to what is already a strained marriage. Kate, meanwhile, is seeking salvation and the munitions factory might just be her sanctuary. Watch the first scenes from Bomb Girls >> Posted 08.08.12 by Mandy
