Back in Chicago, Juliette is reading mean Tweets in her penthouse and crying. Emily enters to say that, even though her assistant-opinion doesn't count for all that much, she loved Juliette's song and the fact that she was brave enough to sing it. Juliette thanks her, but her frown isn't truly turned upside down until she learns that a video of "Consider Me" has gone viral, and lots of people love it. So, you know, she's totally marching to the beat of her own specifically not glittery drum now and not caring what people think! Quite the artiste!
Oh and then YOU GUYS. In her penthouse, Rayna stops pacing long enough to grab her phone and text Deacon. The text says, "Talk?" along with her room number ("PH1" for those of us who are destined to always be impoverished). She pauses for a moment and taps her fingers against the side of the phone before hitting "send." And, first of all: the gorgeous First Aid Kit song "Emmylou" -- which is all about making us get swoony and nostalgic for real life country loves -- is playing while all this is happening, because this show is shameless in trying to kill us dead. It's perfection. Second: Deacon just said that he's tired of talking. So in this case does "talk" mean "bang"? Or does she really want to talk? I repeat: KILLING US DEAD. Deacon, who is brooding on the bed of his much less resplendent hotel room, gets the text, grabs his room key and is out. We cut back to Rayna, lounging on her couch while fidgeting with her phone. There is a knock on the door. Rayna sort of scurries to it as we all sit home DYING (DEAD! I am writing this from BEYOND THE GRAVE!) and then who is standing there but STUPID TEDDY! ARRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHH! So now the show is killing us dead in a much different, less pleasantly woozy way, and Rayna is likely wondering why none of the men in her life can send a fucking courtesy text instead of just showing up unannounced.
So, blargh. It turns out that Teddy has had a moment of clarity, and needed to see Rayna. She also had a moment of clarity about how she should be banging Deacon, and needed precisely NOT to see him. But here he is, ruining everything. Deacon gets off of the elevator on the PH floor and stops short when he spies Teddy outside of Rayna's window. As Teddy enters Rayna's suite, all of his sad sackitude floats down the hall and enters into Deacon, just like how the devil got Sister Mary Eunice in American Horror Story.
