Juliette is woken up by her security team manning the gate. Her mother has come for a visit! How nice.
At least the guard contacting Juliette this time instead of just waving her on through. Remember how he just let Randy drive on up and interrupt Juliette and Deacon in the first episode?
CrackMom begs Juliette, telling her she has nowhere else to go. How charming! And there’s nothing quite so angering as a crackhead getting all “I raised you! You owe me!” Juliette plays it perfectly in this scene. I just love how she won’t cave. She’s heard her lies a million times and it doesn’t matter what she does or doesn’t do, CrackMom is never going to change.
She bawls her eyes out as she walks away. My heart breaks for her again. She wipes her tears up before facing Deacon who’s blithely sipping coffee in the kitchen. At least he was nice enough to make her a cup too. He hightails it out the second, I mean the fucking SECOND Rayna calls. It’s disgusting. And then the jerk doesn’t even have the decency to wait until he’s OFF JULIETTE’S PROPERTY before calling Rayna back. Seriously, ass, she might even be able to hear you because I don’t think you waited for the fucking door to close before ringing Rayna up.
Rayna is in her car, near tears. She asks to meet to talk. My heart goes out to her. She’s dealing with some heavy crap and she needs to lean on a friend. I can totally understand that. It’s just Deacon is being such a prick in the way he’s handling Juliette.
Music City Credit Union, or where I like to call Where Shit is About to Get Real Real on Teddy’s Ass. Teddy’s there to beg a line of credit from some banker dude. They commiserate a bit about the tough economic times and then banker dude sadly announces that the credit union is being audited. And Teddy looks like this:
Seriously, wouldn’t you be surreptiously dialling the IRS headquarters to give them the heads-up on his ass after this face?
And then he makes it WAYYYY more obvious by immediately fleeing. Dundundun.
Avery comes home to Scarlet sweetly cooking. Avery gently listens to Scarlet’s concerns and tries to alleviate them. He’s very sweet and kind and it works. AND for once I made it through an Avery scene without cringing in fear that he was going to wallop Scarlet.
“Imagine it’s just you and me in that studio. Hell, I’ll even be there if you want.”
Score! I smiled slyly when he said this. I’ve been waiting for him to try and horn in and here he goes! But truly, I have no problem with that. As I mentioned in my minicap, I much prefer people who do good things for bad reasons than bad things for good reasons (an example of letting your preteen child sing a sexually suggestive song in front of the whole school and assembled parentage as doing something bad for a good (making a child feel admired and proud) reason. And Avery sounds the most honest, sincere and least creepy as he tells Scarlet “Don’t do it for yourself. Do it for me.” And he actually means it. He wants Scarlet to record so he can get in with Watty and his crew. And he also wants Scarlet to be happy, but let’s be real here. He wants to make himself happy FIRST and if Scarlet is also pleased, then it’s wonderful serendipity.
