Teddy tells Rayna the truth and she tells him she can’t trust him anymore. And sing it sister – you are right, Teddy didn’t do the Cumberland deal for his family, it was all for himself, to make himself feel more masculine and successful.
Deacon and Juliette start off having a pleasant, friendly chat but it all goes to shit when he brings up CrackMom. Juliette, smarting from MotherTebow’s dismissal of her as any sort of option for her son, lashes out. She tells Deacon exactly what it was like for her growing up with CrackMom (and I don’t think she even scratched the surface of how scary it must be growing up with an addict for a parent) and then tells him he’s foolish for not jumping at the chance to go on tour with the Revel Kings (again, Gasmi, real band or no? I mean, I could wiki it but my baby’s diaper needs changing). She delivers the coup de grace by slamming the door in his face. Poor Juliette is hurting. I was kinda hoping instead of slamming that door shut, she instead slammed her body up against Deacon’s. I really do like the two of them together.
And now, a little something from the Hillbilly Hooker catalogue…
What. The. Fuck is she wearing? The costume designers are just messing with us, yeah?
Wyclef presents Avery with a choice: stick with his band and go nowhere or ditch them and start making some inroads into fame and fortune. Part of me is wondering if Wyclef is messing with Avery, testing his loyalty. Another part of me just thinks he’s a skeezer.
Rayna and Deacon meet up for a friendly chat. Connie Britton has an amazing face. Look how gorgeous she looks with her hair pulled back:
That is what I want my 40s to look like.
Teddy holds a press conference to give his side of the photo escandalo. Rayna slurks in late and makes a right-pretty speech about how Teddy loves her and their family and he’s not a cheater and vote for him because I’m a big star.
That’s a happy, relaxed and in love couple, eh? Teddy looks like he`s been dipped in wax
Gunnar and Scarlett’s song Fade Into You has been put “On Hold” which is apparently a big deal so they get champage. Scarlett’s practically bathing in champers this epi. It’s handed out by Hailey who’s trying to look professional while obviously feeling pretty shitty. Love her and her professionalism. Scarlett’s all a-tremble with her excitement and nervousness and general cornponitude. Gunnar, please fuck some of that twitchiness out of her immediately, if not sooner. Thank you.
Gunnar: Couldn`t agree more, SourCake!
Deacon agrees to go on tour with the Revel Kings. They cheers to “Sex, No Drugs and Rock-n-Roll”
