Juliette, meanwhile, is on a high from her amazing show and the acoustic-loving loyalty of her fans. Emily reminds her that Jolene is getting out of rehab next week, and asks if Juliette has made any decisions about where she should live. Juliette has been so busy going unplugged that she forgot about MethMom, and also kind of doesn't care. She tells Emily to find her somewhere with a nice view and a doorman, at least ten miles from her. Glenn then enters, pissed about Juliette's impromptu meeting with the crew. He asks if she wants him to say he's fine with all this craziness. Juliette then grabs his head and kisses him like he's fucking Fredo, adding that she wants him to say "Yes, ma'am." Rayna maybe should start being nicer to Juliette if she doesn't want to add a horse head on her pillow to her litany of problems.
We cut back to Rayna who, sick of people worrying about her, is getting ready to head out. Liam assures her he knows how tough she actually is before stating that he doesn't really need to hear what her problems are, but might have the solution. That three-pronged solution (which is pulled out of his ass) is: drink more, dance, and get away for your life if only for a night. I think "bang your young, hot ex-producer" is implied in the third. A call from Tandy comes in, and Rayna gets just a hint of a devilish look as she says, "Sold," and takes off with Liam. Bucky gets one of his trademarked looks of concern that happen every time Rayna is within three feet of Liam.
Back in Nashville, Rayna's girls have prepared a cake for her that says "Welcomehome MOM." Teddy sees it and says that chocolate is his favorite. Well it doesn't matter because it's NOT YOUR CAKE, ass. Maddie gives Daphne grief for spelling "Welcomehome" as one word, because apparently Daphne is developmentally delayed as well. Maybe she's secretly Scarlett's child? How much further can this house of lies crumble? As the girls talk about how to fix the cake (and the whole thing seems like Daphne's ploy to get to eat more frosting), Teddy appears to get at least a half pang of guilt.
Meanwhile, a frustrated Avery is in the studio recording, while Dominic listens via phone. That's one way to do it, I guess. With Dominic on speaker phone, Avery complains that he's reaching for a sound that just isn't his. Dominic notes that Avery is just out of his comfort zone, before ordering him to just do what he says. Avery takes a break to cool off, and who should be skulking around outside of the studio but Gunnar's ex-girlfriend Hailey. Wow, who ever thought that she'd show up again? Does this mean we're eventually going to have to deal with the return of Carmen, too? And the ghost of Vince? Hailey has apparently been in touch with Avery about a publishing deal. He says he's in no position to give up control of his publishing rights, but she says that they're offering him a co-pub deal, which is 50/50, and there would be a good chance of a six figure signing bonus. He says he has to run it by Marilyn, and Hailey in turn wants to talk more over drinks. And you know how much Avery 1) listens to Marilyn; 2) could use a free drink right now.
