'Manhattan' finale: Deconstructing the atomic bomb drama — Implosion. Pre-detonation. Radioactivity. Meltdowns. The terms that define WGN's atomic bomb drama Manhattan also apply to its characters, a mix of men and women trying to stop a world war by creating a weapon that could destroy the planet completely.
