And scruffilicious. I also quite enjoyed that scratchy growly voice. Deacon is seriously growing on me this episode.
I have watched the same stupid commercial for Sleep-Ez Melts about twenty times tonight. Uhh, who has problems swallowing tiny little sleeping pills? Who actually needs like a Werthers sleeping aid? So. Fucking. Stupid.
Back to the show:
Oooh, shiny! And all for me.
Rayna is dodging Teddy’s rational and reasonable questions about where their marriage is. Rayna doesn’t want to talk about it.
OK, fiiiiine. We took this time apart for some clarity. I still haven’t completely lined up someone else soooo, I don’t have any answers for you yet. Get back to me after I nail the Irish Pony.
Rayna is taking a meeting with Callista at her home. It’s so funny that they both pay lip service about how they are “moms first” as Teddy tends to poor Maddie’s bruised spirit in the background.
You have such a sweet family. Now, let’s get away from them and talk about important things.
Callista is definitely giving Rayna the hard sell and I really enjoyed listening to a discussion between two women that’s not about beauty or clothes but business. Except for that niggling little double meaning most of the conversation has that reflects back to Rayna’s disenchantment with her marriage. I’m sure it was deliberate and it spoiled my enjoyment of the scene a little bit.
Juliette does her big speech in court. It’s wonderful and appropriate and felt real. CrackMom’s been an addict since forever and Juliette hopes this stint in rehab works. Honest and appropriate.
And holy shit, does she ever look AMAZING.
Deacon and Juliette sit in the courthouse, waiting to see if CrackMom will be released early. Wah-wah, she won’t. However, she is still free for the day and Deacon railroads Juliette into letting CrackMom come to her big, fancy, important party. Oh, yeah, this doesn’t have fucking problems written all over it. It worries me deeply to see how quickly CrackMom jumped at the chance to go to this party. The fact she’s likely star-struck, I couldn’t care less about. It’s the “I’ve gotta go to parties sometime…” Uh, you aren’t even finished a full stint in rehab. There are years of parties down the road. Go out for dinner and a movie instead.
Rayna comes over to check on Deacon and he’s out pounding a For Sale sign into his front yard. It looks FREEZING. Does it get cold in Nashville? Yeah, I know, I’m stupid for not knowing. Deacon is seething with anger and he says that his life and his sobriety is no longer Rayna’s concern. It’s pretty awesome.
