At the Bluebird, Scarlett stops by to get her check and runs into Gunnar. She says that she heard him fighting with Avery, and wants to clear something up. The thing that she wants to clear up is not that she is an idiot for ever inviting Avery to play with them. Instead, she wants Gunnar to know for serious that there is nothing going on between the two of them. They're friends and songwriting partners, and that's it. Well, nice to tell him NOW after he got you a publishing deal. Scarlett says that she's with Avery, and Gunnar in turn says that he knows, and that he's with Hailey. Scarlett seems a little surprised that Hailey/Gunnar are actually a thing, and says that she just wanted to be clear about all this. And speaking of Hailey, Gunnar gets a text from her saying that Jeanne heard back from the Lady Antebellum manager. Dun dunnnnnnnnnnn!
We then cut to Rayna, who's at home on her couch, writing. It's 2:30 AM, and Teddy's just getting home, probably after a shady clandestine meeting with someone. He says he's trying to turn things around, and adds that the debate didn't help much. She asks if he wants to talk about it, but he doesn't. Then Teddy asks what Rayna is working on, and she says it's a song -- about herself, for a change. What does she write about normally? World peace? Or, more likely, Deacon. Teddy starts to walk off, but pauses, asking Rayna what exactly happened between "you two," and why she canceled the tour. Dude, it was because you said you couldn't take it anymore after Deacon stared you down! You were there! Rayna gets a little shifty eyed, and Teddy asks directly if she slept with him. Rayna says no, adding, "Do you really think I would do that?" Um, yes, duh. Teddy then looks her right in the eye, asking, "Did you want to?" And okay, a word to the wise: NEVER ask that question. If you have to ask, then the answer is probably yes. Whatever! People want to sleep with people. Just be glad she kept it in her pants. Rayna looks uncomfortable and kind of shakes her head halfheartedly as she tells Teddy that they have to put the past behind them. He says that he's trying. When he's not busy trying to cover up his history of embezzlement, that is.
Meanwhile, Deacon meets with Cole, whom you may remember is his sponsor. It turns out taking crazy crackhead Jolene to rehab brought up some stuff for him. You know how it is, with smelling the rehab sweat and thinking about drugs. Deacon apologizes to Cole for having to drag him into that place, and Cole tells him that it was Rayna who saved his life. Cole also knows that Deacon is holding onto something. It turns out that something is the bottle of pills that Jolene dropped. It sounds like he was awfully tempted to take them, but didn't. He hands them to Cole and walks out, looking antsy.
