Or am I the only one who starting thinking of Lose Yourself? Juliette caves and agrees to do an interview with GMA.
At the dinner of Uncomfortable Awkwardness and Rage Issues, Gunnar, Scarlett, Avery, Flirty and Record Company Lady sit around a table. Gunnar is telling the story of his arrival in Nashville. It’s typical hillbilly in the big city. Avery looks uncomfortable and irritated that the focus is not on him.
Scarlett says she just came out to Nashville to be with Avery and the writing was an accident. Avery no likey. And honestly, can you blame him? He’s been working for his big break to no avail and then his cream-puff girlfriend has Watty White land in her lap.
This is what it’s come to? Listening to Barbie prattle on about her “process”? FML.
Scarlett makes things worse by going on and on about how Avery is such a talented performer and his band plays at the 5Spot all the time…Avery grows increasingly uncomfortable. Because really, Scarlett, stop overcompensating. It’s emasculating.
I think this is the moment his balls actually shrivel up and fall off.
Dundundun…Rayna is at the Country Club with the rich hens when in strides A Woman From Teddy’s Past. Peggy Somethingorother. It doesn’t matter. What’s important is that Rayna hates her, she’s gorgeous and Teddy is visibly uncomfortable.
Avery and Scarlett have it out in the parking lot (why do I feel that so many emotional scenes on this show take place in the parking lot? America really is all about the car culture, eh?) Scarlett is hurt and confused and makes this face a lot.
Avery is understandably pissed and confused and frustrated. He doesn’t come out and say it but he does not like playing second fiddle to Cornpone Barbie.
He storms off to walk the rage off, leaving Scarlett to drive herself home.
Rayna and Teddy have a lovely little moment in their glorious kitchen. He tells her that she dazzles him. It’s a lovely sentiment but you can see Rayna’s regret and sadness churning around in her brain. She loves Teddy, I believe that. But he doesn’t dazzle her. He was safe and steady and her second choice.
Poor Teddy. Poor felonious, second-choice Teddy.
Scene shifts to Casa CrackMom. Juliette is morosely watching herself being trashed in social media as CrackMom whips up the most trailer park dish I have ever heard of: Pink Macaroni. It’s KD with ketchup and cream cheese and I’ll just be a moment while I go make some for myself!
