Back at Rayna and Teddy's, their meeting with Joe, who is apparently their accountant, is not going so well. Given the fact that Teddy went bust with the development deal, plus the campaign costs (wouldn't Lamar be paying for those?), plus the lost income from the bigger tour, they've got to stop spending money. Joe tells them to "cut their monthly nut" in half. Monthly nut???? Is that what they're calling it these days? If they don't, Joe says, they'll be in serious trouble in a few months. Joe explains that they have assets but they aren't liquid. One option is to borrow on the house by taking a line of credit. Teddy worries about how this will look to voters and Joe says, "A lot better than declaring bankruptcy." It's a "joke." Bucky again mentions the possibility of Rayna touring with Juliette, which does not go over so well. Neither does Joe's suggestion that she borrow money from Lamar. Why doesn't Teddy borrow directly from Lamar to cover his campaign costs? I thought that was one of the benefits of being a rich man's pawn!
Meanwhile, we learn that Juliette prefers Kraft singles to real cheese... That's both literal and a metaphor, and also probably the result of being raised by a meth-addicted mom. Speaking of, MethMom is lurking around the corner! Glenn rushes to try and head her off before she reaches Juliette, and we learn that her name is Jolene. Jolene! Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene! I feel like this show should have myriad tributes to Dolly Parton, and this is NOT one of them. Jolene seems maybe slightly less methy as she yells to Juliette that she wants to tell her things that have been going on. Juliette would rather not know, and instead gets into her car and is driven off, looking awfully disturbed. Poor Glenn, man. Hell hath no fury like a MethMom scorned.
Some time later, Juliette is engaged in one of her favorite pastimes -- admiring photos of herself -- while Randy, the producer guy who she slept with before she nabbed Deacon, tells her that she has 14 solid tracks but needs another six. Is she releasing a double album? Or is this for her tour? Juliette's response has to do with her photos, and she brags that she looks pretty good. Her assistant chimes in with, "Yeah, those whitening strips really worked." Ha! Being a personal assistant must force you to really refine the art of passive aggression. Glenn talks about security being upped, then delivers the news that Deacon will not sign an exclusive contract. But Juliette is not one to take no for an answer and, asking why she pays Glenn if she has to do everything herself, leaves a message for Deacon telling him that they're recording "Undermine" today, and if he wants to be a part of it he should get his butt to the studio. The recording part seems to be news to everybody. The fact that Juliette can be a nasty troll is not.
