We head back to Red Lips White Lies, where Rayna gets a call from Teddy backstage before the show. He's "checking in" to let her know that the girls are fine, so tomorrow will be the perfect time to tell them about the divorce. Rayna is NOT happy, saying that she'd like to at least have a conversation first about how they're going to do it, and also not spend her first day home ruining their lives. Teddy gets a little stern as he says that the longer they wait, the more likely something is to leak. She wonders why anything would leak, because she's not aware of how Teddy has been making out with Peggy in a car with the windows down in the middle of town. She also wonders why he would call her and tell her this just before she's about to go on stage. Maybe he has a third testicle that's poking out? The girls come home and are cute on the phone for a minute, which only seems to make things worse.
Rayna heads out on stage in tight leather pants and a sparkly top, but looks panicked and in a daze, not fully hearing either the crowd's applause or the band. Looking on from the audience, Deacon notes that something's wrong. From backstage, Juliette also notices that Rayna has missed her cue -- twice. The band members give each other glances and Rayna has another foggy moment before snapping out of it, smiling, and starting that song about being fickle and also not fickle. And THAT, ladies and gentleman, was apparently the moment that could end a career. Thanks, previews, for not blowing anything completely out of proportion! From the audience, Deacon says that he hasn't seen Rayna miss a cue in 20 years. So, though it's not career-ending, this moment does show that her "always fine" claim is being put to the test.
Backstage after the show, Adria mouths "Are you okay?" from across the room, while Bucky brings Rayna flowers and tells her that no one noticed the hiccup at the beginning. And then who is there hovering in the door like the Big Bad Wolf but Liam. Rayna greets him by saying, "Well, well, well -- look who shows up when I don't have my rifle." He hands her a glass of champagne, claiming that he has no agenda. Except to test how difficult it is to get those leather pants off, methinks.
Meanwhile, Juliette meets with her band, dancers and crew, whom she says are "like family." So she wants to share with them the news that the fan reaction to the new material has been outstanding. So much so, that she's going to revamp the tour to get away from some of the more juvenile aspects of the show. This is news to Glenn and, I think, Deacon. Also probably the gyrating dancers who might be out of a job.
