Rayna and Teddy then have an encounter in their house, where Rayna chills in, like, a smoking jacket. That's the kind of swag that comes along with Deacon taking it slow. They start off very civil -- she tells him she'll be at the Edgehill party tonight and he congratulates her on her nomination, and she hopes that he and Maddie have fun at the father-daughter dance. Teddy admits that he and Maddie need some healing in their relationship, adding that the way he handled things with Peggy was hurtful to all of them. And then of course Rayna is riddled with guilt because that's how she does it. She says that if they're being honest, she and Deacon might be... dot dot dot. She starts going into how it's early blah blah blah, but Teddy interjects by saying it's a bad idea. He knows Rayna, and there's no way she can be in a relationship with Deacon without the truth about Maddie coming out. Rayna is taken aback by Teddy's attempt to micromanage her romantic life, and maybe realizes she didn't need to tell him this shit in the first place. Complete honesty is overrated! As he starts to tell her what's at stake, Maddie comes out in her dance dress, looking super pretty. She heads back to get her lip gloss, and Teddy sternly says that he is Maddie's only father, and Rayna must not threaten that. He wants her to honor the agreement they made the day Maddie was born, and if she can't handle it she should break it off with Deacon ASAP. Ugh, deep dark secrets. Also: shut up, Teddy.
Juliette is then in her limo, drinking sad person vodka. Awwww, Jules. Emily gets a message that she is clearly reluctant to share with Juliette, but Juliette wants her to spill. It turns out that the security people got the details on the credit card charges, and Dante bought a $17,000 diamond ring. Juliette guesses that's not for her, and calls him a cheap bastard. If that were my money he was spending, I wouldn't think he was so cheap.
Rayna then arrives at the nomination party with Tandy, giving a "WHAT is she wearing?" moment. Connie Britton is an exquisitely made human, so to make her look weird you have to try pretty hard. Rayna and Juliette pose together for the press, and a reporter asks how it feels for the tourmates to compete in the same category. Rayna assures the reporters that if they want a catfight, they're not going to get it (because she prefers to keep that private!) and adds the two women have a lot of respect for each other. Juliette smirks that it will bring them closer together. Then they pose and bitch under their breath for a moment, with Rayna zinging that Juliette's perfume is 80-proof. It's going to be a fun night!
