Juliette opens up her guitar case and Deacon is faced with a 1938 Martin. Wait, does she even PLAY the guitar? What is she doing with that thing other than trying to get in Deacon's pants? Well, maybe that's enough. He handles the guitar gingerly, noodles around a little, and tells her that if she's trying to impress him with the vintage guitar on Tammy Wynette's land, it's working. She says that the guitar is actually for herself, and that he shouldn't be fooled by the shiny exterior -- she's more than meets the eye. When you have to explicitly tell that to someone, maybe you should reconsider the veracity of the statement. Deacon asks Juliette if she's ready to get to it, which she of course thinks means ready to DO IT. There is some smooching, but Deacon wants to write (no quotes) instead of "write." I think having a guy rather touch your guitar than your boobs is one of those "he's just not that into you" moments.
With that, we are at the house of mayoral candidate Coleman Carlisle. Rayna is there apologizing for not honoring her commitment to sing at his campaign announcement. She asks if he can shed some light on what her evil devil dad is up to with his evil evildoings. Coleman explains about the baseball stadium, which Lamar would like to build (and make oodles of money from, I'm guessing) but which Coleman thought was not the best use of the city's money. He said so in a Metro Council meeting, which pissed off Lamar, and thus you have Mayor Teddy. Rayna can't believe that, after all these years, their families are caught up in a political rivalry. Cole says that Lamar is starting to treat him like family, which, you may have gathered, is not necessarily a good thing. They end with talk about Teddy's fundraiser that night, which Rayna looks none too happy to have to attend.
Back at the Bluebird, Gunnar probes Scarlett for whether she's thought about Watty's offer, and also whether she'd like to sometime hang out outside of work. He does so in the most awkward manner possible, because that's all part of his charm. Scarlett then invites him to see Avery's band perform, which is not exaaaaactly what Gunnar had in mind.
