We then cut to a random dark alley, where Juliette and Makena are waiting in the backseat of a car. See, THIS is how you do a clandestine meeting! Makena doesn't entirely understand why they're there. Soon the Miami paparazzo, Steve, enters, and Juliette tells him that instead of selling the photos of Sean to someone else, he's going to sell them to her along with the memory card. She hands him a check and says that she'll also make him her first call the next ten times she goes out. Steve looks googly-eyed at the check, says they have a deal, and hands the memory card to her. He points out that she wasn't in the photos at all, and she guesses that he's getting the better end of this deal. Aw, she did a nice thing for a person! Character evolution, right before our eyes.
Elsewhere in shady photographer news, the guy who has been tailing Teddy and Peggy presents his incriminating photos to Cole. Cole asks if this is as bad as it looks, and the photographer says he knows an affair when he sees one. Apparently not, and he doesn't know an embezzlement scandal when he sees one, either. Cole shakes his head as he mutters, "Teddy Conrad a cheater?"
So, it turns out Juliette has some decent karma coming to her. Sean shows up at her door, and says that no one has spent $25,000 on photos of him before. She says in turn that no one has ever fought a paparazzo to defend her honor before. Sean has determined that he's going to go back to his usual tradition of staying in on Friday nights. And he would like Juliette to join him. Yes, he is asking her out! Or rather, because he's such a dork, he's asking her in. The real question is, does that mean they'll have continuous hot sexytimes or just play Parcheesi? Maybe sing Sunday school hymns in two-part harmony? Either way, I don't think she minds it so much.
Meanwhile, Rayna is playing her newly-produced version of "Buried Under" for Marshall. He appears to love it, until he learns that Liam produced it. His smile turns upside down and he says it's too bad, because the label doesn't work with Liam. Rayna would like to make an exception, but Marshall declines. It appears that five years ago at the VMAs, Liam told Marshall to go screw himself. But that's not going to make Rayna change her mind about what she wants. Marshall asks why she has to fight him on everything, and she says she's not fighting him -- she's fighting for what she believes in. This is her guy, and this is her sound, and if Marshall doesn't like it another label might. He thinks she's playing dirty, but she tells him that she's just playing her music -- this is where she's going, so he might as well get on board. And really, wouldn't it benefit him if she had a record that actually sold? People love the indie/rock producer with the country stars! If Rayna were an octogenarian, it would be a surefire success.
