Scarlett is moping around the apartment when Avery comes home. Avery gives her some very good advice about counting her blessings and accepting that it was a huge accomplishment to simply record with Watty White, nevermind if anyone actually wants to offer her a publishing deal. Avery is really growing on me this episode.
Doesn’t hurt that he’s pretty smokin’ hot. In a greasy, scary sort of way. Gunnar interrupts their sexytimes to tell them they got the publishing deal. Scarlett shoves Gunnar out of the way to tackle Avery with glee.
Wah-wah for Gunnar. And it makes her later behaviour with Flirtypants PA unacceptable.
Teddy and Rayna discuss the country club fundraiser and there is tension. I can totally see Teddy’s point of view. He wants to keep pretty quiet about his campaign because it consists of everything that sets Rayna off: the Richie-riches country-club set, Lamar, politics, gladhanding. It’s kind of noble of him, in a way. Also, I think his modus operandi is to hide things and be secretive, so it’s authentic to his character that he doesn’t open up to Rayna about the campaign.
Am I being persnickety in thinking that grey polish just looks trashy?
Juliette yoga-preens in front of her publicist, manager and PA. She clearly isn’t taking the shoplifting escandalo seriously. And honestly, why are they? It’s shoplifting for heaven’s sake! It’s not drunk-driving, snorting meth, running over a hobo or anything that is actually serious. Yes, it’s a crime and it’s terrible but it’s pretty harmless in the grand scheme of things. It’s definitely not a Red Alert situation. Aren’t there more important things for us to be scandalized by? For us to be interested in? An election, a devastating hurricane, a global recession, the gradual erosion of human rights? I’m as guilty as the next person in my addiction to gossip blogs and infotainment but I also enjoy real news and follow events that actually have an impact on our future. And some celebutart caught stealing (or whatever) just shouldn’t be that newsworthy.
Off of my soapbox and over to Bucky…he’s calling up Deacon to fill him in on the gig at the country club. Now, this is a truly terrible idea. On par with Goodman having CrackMom move in with Juliette. What is wrong with these managers? Why don’t they ever have GOOD ideas???? It’s one thing for exlover to be in Rayna’s band and record and tour with her. Performing at a political fundraiser for her husband is in an entirely different class of suckass ideas. The mystery is why no one actually said hey, this idea truly sucks, only bad things can come of it, it will make people talk. If people are gossiping about some stupid shoplifting incident, what would the chattering classes make of Rayna and her ex singing up a storm for her husband? I just can’t think of enough words to truly describe what a terrible idea this is.
