As Deacon packs up, Juliette appears at his car to ask if anyone has ever recorded his dancing fireflies song. Deacon has, which he says that means it's damned to obscurity. Juliette not only wants to record it, but to have him play on it. This week! And either before or after or during she obviously wants to have the sexytimes with him. Deacon says he could do it depending on when, since he has rehearsal with Rayna all week. Juliette says that she heard Rayna's tour might be off, but Deacon has heard no such thing. He's been too busy carefully weathering his denim shirts to listen to Music City gossip. Juliette then asks Deacon to come and be her bandleader, which is code for "have sex with me." Her current bandleader's wife is due two weeks into the tour, she says, and they'll have to replace him anyway. Deacon says he can't do that to Rayna, and Juliette offers to pay double what she pays. And in her current financial state, I'm guessing Rayna pays one hot buttered biscuit per week. Juliette wants the best, and Deacon is the best and also she wants to "co-write." She adds that they could have a lot of fun on the road, which is barely even a euphemism for "have sex." Deacon looks suspicious, which is going to make their inevitable banging even sadder. As she leaves, Juliette tells him that Rayna's not the only woman in the world. He replies, "You're a girl," and she says, "That too." She puts on her Britney Spears hat and leaves -- I guess to reinforce that she's not a girl, not yet a woman. Floating in the liminal space of overconfident skankitude! After she's gone Deacon asks, "What the hell was that?" which is apparently everybody's reaction to interactions with Juliette.
And then it's time for a dose of eeeeeeevillllllll. Lamar is with Tandy and a bunch of suits. Apparently they want to develop a major league ballpark in the middle of Nashville, but the mayor is against it. And, Tandy notes, things won't get any easier when Coleman Carlisle is in office. Lamar thus plans to run his own candidate. Tandy recommends someone business-friendly, who fits nicely in his pocket. Lamar reaches into his pocket and quickly pulls out Teddy. Tandy is skeptical, but Lamar tells one of his suited associates to run it up the flagpole. He then throws a baseball, old-guy style, into the empty field. I seriously think this character was modeled after Mr. Burns. As Tandy says that Rayna is going to lose it, Lamar cackles. His delight in the misfortune of those who share his DNA is really touching.
