In the Palace of Evildoing, Lamar and Teddy are strategizing. It turns out Lamar wants to go negative on Coleman. Teddy tells him that Rayna is going to flip and Cole will release the hounds of hell. If they don't do it, Lamar argues, they'll definitely lose. He asks if Teddy wants to win or not. Teddy does want to win, which is probably not a positive development for his own well-being. Meanwhile, Rayna has just recorded her solo-written song. Bucky really loves it, and Rayna tells him to call Marshall Evans and let him know they just cut the first track for her next record. It's called "Buried Under," and plays as a few things happen. First, Deacon -- who appears to be on a break from his AA meeting -- calls Bucky and says to go ahead and use "American Beauty" in the commercial. He's going to let it go -- I guess it's in his rear view mirror. Then we see Juliette entering her new giant house, a modern mansion out in the woods with a really spectacular pool. Wouldn't it be great to just buy a new awesome mansion every time you were sad, even if it did kind of look like it was straight out of a '70s office park? And then dumb-ass Teddy meets Peggy right by the highway late at night. She tells him that Lamar is a genius and that the auditors just packed up and left, adding that he's going to be the best mayor Nashville has ever seen. We pan over to a photographer in a car, taking pictures of Teddy and Peggy that look awfully incriminating, in an extramarital affair type way. I hope you enjoyed your five minutes of being happy, Rayna Jaymes!
Next week: Juliette goes a little wild with a hot new dude. Meanwhile, Avery meets a woman who wants to represent his band, and also get in his pants. For him, that seems like a win-win.
Potes doesn't even want to think of all the incriminating photos of her, given her penchant for clandestine meet-ups in public places. Tweet her @traciepotes, or email email@example.com.
