And THEN. Teddy continues his trajectory of being an idiot by giving Peggy a call from inside his house, while the girls are also there. She's in bed with a lit candle, and probably a bottle each of pills and vodka in the nightstand. Teddy apologizes for not being in touch since they did it in the shadow of her beret, and Peggy is totally expecting him to say they can't see each other again. Instead, he shocks her by telling her that he asked Rayna for a divorce. Peggy manages to sit up for probably the first time in weeks, stops sawing at her wrist with a butter knife, and says, "That must have been hard." Yes, for us, the viewers, who were looking forward to finally seeing Rayna have hot sexytimes with Deacon! Peggy wants to know what she can do to help, after Teddy tells her that they're planning on telling the kids about the divorce the next day. He just wants her to talk to him, especially since they probably won't be able to see each other for a while, unless she's giving him a beej in the car right under a sign that says "Paparazzi Parking Lot." Maddie walks in to tell Teddy about a broken bowl, and gets quiet once she realizes he's on the phone. She overhears him telling Peggy that it just feels right being with her, with Teddy being stupid enough to say Peggy's name. Maddie closes the door and looks sad. Well, this experience should toughen her up for the moment when she has to go on Maury and learn about her true paternity.
In other potentially child-traumatizing things, Rayna and Liam are having shots and peanuts at a country line dancing dive bar. See, now that looks like fun. Liam asks if they're just going to drink all night or if Rayna's going to tell him what's up, and she reminds him that he said he didn't care to hear about her problems. He admits that he lied, which is apparently charming enough for Rayna to steal his fedora. I personally feel that this move is beneath her, and so choose blame it on the bourbon. Rayna says that what she likes most about Liam is that he doesn't know a damn thing about her. Oh, sure he does! They were BFFs in bean dip for a hot minute, after all. Liam also knows that Rayna is getting drunk. She denies it, but then knocks over his shot and giggles, which is a sure sign of drunkenness. But who cares about wasted shots and wasted ladies! It's time for some line dancing. Rayna pulls Liam onto the floor over some mild objection, telling him that he should have kept the cowboy boots she gave him. Nice recall. Probably better than bringing up whatever dirty deal he was doing behind her back, though I would like to have just a little resolution to that particular plot point. Rayna puts Liam's arm around her and prepares to teach him the two-step, which she claims is the easiest dance in the world. It involves a quick-quick-slow step pattern, and also apparently lots of eye fucking. This is EXACTLY how it went down with Jack White and Loretta Lynn, you will be interested to know.
