Meanwhile, Rayna and Juliette STILL haven't agreed on a song. Rayna suggests they might try some of her new material, but Juliette doesn't want to take a chance on something untested. She notes that she has songs that have gone multi-platinum, but Rayna still doesn't think they're good enough to play. Rayna claims that that isn't the case, but says that the Ryman stage is where people go to make history. Liam suggests edging up a classic, and Juliette is of course bitchy about that idea. She continues to be bitchy by saying that she could have written three songs in the time they've been sitting there listening to Rayna reminisce about her glory days, when she didn't need Juliette to help her fill seats.
And then Rayna lays into a good, old fashioned smackdown. She says that Juliette will be on the Ryman stage because of her, and she's doing a favor for the label that she helped to create. Rayna adds, "You have not earned that place at all, and everybody here knows it." This hits a nerve, and Juliette stomps off. Whatever! If you can't handle the truth, don't be a country singer! Liam says, "That girl seriously needs to get laid," and Connie Britton gives a perfect line delivery as she says, "That is SO not her problem." And then Deacon totally gives Rayna shit! Even though Juliette has ostensibly been insulting her for hours! He thinks that Juliette didn't deserve that, and reminds Rayna that lots of people said she wasn't traditional country enough when she was starting out. Rayna points out that Juliette has Deacon wrapped around her finger before saying that she just straight-up doesn't believe in that music. Deacon practically throws a CD of "Undermine" at her as proof that Juliette has the potential to be a great songwriter. To which I say, shut up, Deacon.
Cut to Juliette's house, where Sean has driven over in response to some sort of emergency. As soon as he gets in the door he learns that it is, in fact, a sex emergency. He and Juliette start a hot makeout session that involves ass-grabbing -- too hot for ABC! -- and as she straddles him on the couch she takes off his shirt, revealing a full sleeve tattoo. Juliette then takes off her own shirt, revealing the aforementioned great rack. But when she goes for Sean's belt, he puts a stop to the shenanigans because he thinks they should wait. Wait for what, Juliette asks? Sean says that he's not into casual sex. I mean, O'Doul's is too hard for this guy. Is the celibacy really a surprise? Juliette wonders if this whole burgeoning relationship is actually just for press, then asks if Sean is gay and looking for a beard. Furious that she can't get anyone to have sex with her, Juliette throws him out.
