Back at the studio, Rayna asks Bucky what he thinks of Liam McGuinnis. Bucky thinks that Liam McGuinnis is a non-starter, and a crazy rock star to boot. But he's a recent Nashville transplant, and even though he doesn't know a thing about country music, he's really hot right now. Rayna seems sold by the fact that he has a dog named after June Carter-Cash (country enough!), and asks Bucky to get her a meeting. He looks dubious, but resigned to doing what she says.
Meanwhile, things are looking up for Juliette thanks to her photo with Sean and the head-climbing marsupial. She is not so thrilled that this particular photo has gone viral, given the "large rodent" on her head, but Makena says that it's just what they needed and that Sean Butler is the best thing to happen to Juliette in ages. Juliette disagrees, saying that Sean is boring and sucks at football. Glen defends him as being a rookie, though it seems that Juliette doesn't think he's a rookie at being boring. Makena wants Juliette to go on a date with Sean, and thought Juliette is reluctant Glen thinks it's a small sacrifice to save her career. Plus, what else is she doing aside from hanging around her new house and being a bitch? Whenever Juliette argues with someone, they basically just have to call her a klepto and she agrees to whatever they propose.
And then it's time to check in with Avery and his band as they perform at The 5 Spot. Reed Olsen is there, and so is another lady who seems to take a very keen interest in Avery's performance. And of course Scarlett is in the audience bopping along in her typical haze of cluelessness. The song that Avery is playing is called "Kiss," and the whole performance is great. The song's fantastic, the band sounds good, and Avery seems to have a healthy quantity of charisma and a sweet falsetto. Reed seems relatively impressed by the performance, while the other lady is more keenly interested than ever. Scarlett of course thought the whole thing was superior even to a hot buttered acorn.
