We then cut to a fast-motion scene of lights and equipment being put together for the "Red Lips, White Lies" tour, which is pretty cool. Bucky walks with Rayna and tells her that Juliette's sound check is at 4:00 tomorrow, and hers is at 5:00. Sensing that Rayna is a bit distracted, Bucky asks if everything is okay. Rayna says that she loves the crew and the guys, but the guitar player doesn't know what he's doing. He came highly recommended and toured with some big names, but Rayna thinks that he isn't all that interested in what she's doing. Bucky agrees to talk to him. Rayna then gets a video-call from her girls, who are cute as ever. Teddy shows up to make the girls leave and do their homework, and takes the call off video to talk to Rayna. That's probably so she can't see his overly dramatic facial expressions. The big updates are that the girls are doing fine, and the polls are a little too close to call. Teddy asks what Rayna's thinking about the state of their relationship, and Rayna gives a standard non-answer. What Teddy really wants to know is if she's coming back for the election. He thinks she won't, and then gets weird and hostile about the whole thing, which certainly isn't a very convincing tactic if he in fact does want her there. After they hang up, Rayna stands alone on the stage and looks concerned... probably about the guitar player situation.
Then we're at the Bluebird, where Scarlett asks Gunnar if he's still thinking of driving to Austin after work. He is. It turns out that Deacon got Scarlett tickets to see the Revel Kings in Austin the following night, with backstage passes and everything. Gunnar tries to discourage her, saying that he's got family stuff to deal with. Scarlett, who has a very hard time reading context clues, asks if she can just hitch a ride if she chips in for gas. She notes that they can work on some songs during the 15-hour trip. Finally sensing that Gunnar is being weird, Scarlett surmises that he just doesn't enjoy her company. While that would be true for the rest of us, it is not, in fact, Gunnar's problem with the situation. He says the trouble is that he's leaving straight from the Bluebird. Happily/unhappily, Scarlett has a packed bag with her. It's probably full of stuffed animals and birdseed, but that's all she really needs for a road trip.
