Back at home, Rayna sits cross-legged as Teddy walks in their bedroom. He says, "I can't deal with it anymore." I think he's talking about the two giant painted portraits of their daughters, which do indeed prove that the country club set are their people. Who has those, other than Real Housewife Sonja Morgan? Anyway, Rayna knows that Teddy is fed up. Teddy says that he's her husband, and Rayna replies, "I'm firing him." But... nooooooo! The intimate duo sexytimes tour must go on! RIGHT? I guess this is the "us" and the "position" that Rayna was talking about in the inscrutable conversation. Terribly played, everybody. Except for Lamar, of course, who got exactly what he wanted.
Meanwhile, there is some awfully big tension between Scarlett and Avery. She wants to talk about it, and finally says that she doesn't want to feel bad about the deal. Furthermore, she really wants to write, and would love it if Avery supported her like she supports him. He says that he's trying. Not very hard, but still.
Back at the publishing office, Hailey opens the fridge to find a whole bunch of yogurts with her name on them, literally. When you have a publishing deal, I guess you can afford lots of yogurt. Gunnar comes around the corner and says that it's his yogurt, which is a strange and yet I suppose charming way of flirting. Kids these days! So on board with the acidophilus and the romance.
And THEN. Teddy drives to a secluded parking lot of some sort, where he gets out of his car and into Peggy's. He thanks her for coming, and she says that this is torture, and that she felt sick at the fundraiser. He knows and is sorry, and says that the campaign changes everything. People have been digging into his past. Peggy tells him that someone is going to find out. Find out WHAT? He asks if she's told anyone, and she says that she hasn't. Bu the two of them have kept "this secret" for a long time, and she thinks it's better if they come clean on their own terms. ABOUT WHAT? Teddy acknowledges that what they did (WHAT?) was really stupid, but she can't talk about it (WHAT?) to anyone. His campaign, marriage, and family depends on it, and so does hers. DEPENDS ON WHAT? And though this sort of makes it seem like they are/were having an affair, I bet it has to do with his financial scandal and burned papers. Otherwise wouldn't they be making out already?
