As dramatic as it would have been to see Deacon hold a grudge against his niece for weeks and weeks, we're glad that these two appear to be sorting things out and reconciling sooner rather than later. Grief is not something you should go through alone, and these two song writers definitely need each other.
Scarlett and Deacon really need to sit down and have a talk about the why's and how's of Beverly's death, and it looks like they're finally going to get to do that in "Stop the World and Let Me Off." Deacon needs all the support he can get at this point, and so does Scarlett.
Scarlett, too, sorts through her memories of Beverly as she sorts through her house. We imagine that Scarlett's childhood home holds quite a few bad memories of Beverly along with the good ones, as she struggled with her mental health. Stay strong, Scarlett!
Well, she's not back in the way you think. While he goes through her things, it seems like Deacon might be remembering his big sister more and more. Hopefully he can remember the parts of her that wouldn't have wanted to live on a ventilator for the rest of her life, so he can finally forgive Scarlett.
It's got to be hard, sorting through all the belongings of a dead loved one, especially when one of you blames the other so much for the death of that loved one. This trip might be just what Scarlett and Deacon need to sort things out though, no matter how tense the journey.
Elsewhere, Deacon and Scarlett head down to Natchez to take care of Beverly's house and clean out her things. Their relationship has been through the whirlwind so far this season, so expect things to be tense. Can Deacon ever forgive Scarlett for taking Beverly off of life support?
We knew there was more to this little little concert story. Colt has never been the greatest influence on Maddie, and now that they're dating he's not getting much better. Still, it's nice to see him so happy for his girlfriend, while she performs on stage. He's not all bad!
Luke's fans might be going gaga over him, but we wonder if Rayna will be feeling the same once she hears that Maddie performed on Luke's tour? Our guess would be a big fat no. Good luck explaining that one Luke! Mama Bear Rayna does not play nice!
If there is anyone absolutely not falling from grace, it's Luke Wheeler. We still don't like that he dropped Will from his label for being gay, but Luke is using his new image consultant for all she is worth. He's a star on the rise, and he's taking serious advantage of that fact.
As much as we love to see Juliette's career taking off, the sense of doom surrounding the whole thing kind of makes us wish she would just crash and burn already. The anticipation of watching her fall from grace is almost worse than the knowledge that it's totally coming.
Juliette might be all smiles on stage and for the camera, but we know that she's playing a dangerous game, mixing drugs, alcohol, and post-partum depression. If she doesn't get it under control soon, she might be heading for a major break down where there will be no smiles in sight.
Maddie's dark and sexy little black dress is exactly the kind of thing we'd expect to see Juliette wear on stage. There might be a reason for that, since Juliette is the one who arranged this little performance in the first place. If she wasn't already on thin ice with Rayna, she surely is now!
Gunnar: Wanna help me set up our band's Twitter profile? Scarlett: We already have a Twitter profile? Gunnar: Of course. We got to generate publicity. We just need a photo, that's all. Scarlett: Why? Gunnar: Well, if you don't upload a photo, then you're just an egg, and no one takes you seriously when you're just an egg.
