Juliette returns home to find Makena in her house, asking if she had a good time in Miami. She knows about this little excursion thanks to Juliette's tweets about it. Also, the paparazzo is threatening to go public with a very unflattering photo of Sean that makes him look drunk and violent. Of course he wasn't even drinking, but it doesn't matter since he looks absolutely wasted. The tweets are bad enough, says Makena, but Juliette should know that it's the pictures that kill a career. Juliette looks at the photo of Sean, and actually seems to be feeling a smattering of remorse.
At the Bluebird, Gunnar asks Scarlett if she and Avery would like to come along with him and Hailey to check out a new bar tonight. She tells him that Avery has a meeting with the manager lady, and Gunnar starts acting weird. He acts if Scarlett is sure that Avery should be meeting with Marilyn, since Deacon didn't seem too hot on the idea the other night. Scarlett wonders what Deacon has to do with anything, and upon prompting Gunnar has to admit that Deacon did tell Marilyn to stay away from Avery. Scarlett's chipmunk cheeks get very red, and she angrily spits out the sunflower seeds she's been storing in there and rushes out.
Later on, Rayna goes back to Liam's studio to ask exactly what happened the previous night. He doesn't hesitate before saying that it was magical. She looks a teeny bit concerned as she asks, "What kind of magical?" But she's safe, because it was musical magical! And it's a good thing, because there's video. We see Rayna in front of a microphone, whiskey in hand, clearly feeling it as she sings "Buried Under." As she watches the video she sort of starts to laugh it off, but Liam says it was electric, and this is the kind of magic you can't teach. This is Rayna, he says, and she needs to stop worrying about fall festivals and shit. She's digging it, and we all know she's no good at making cupcakes anyway.
We cut to Deacon's house, where Scarlett is throwing acorns at the door. And I know I make a lot of Scarlett woodland creature jokes, but she is never more critter-esque than when she gets really mad and confrontational. It turns out she has squirrel-rage about Deacon telling Marilyn not to work with Avery, which she sees as a dick move even if he doesn't like Avery all that much. Deacon wonders why everyone thinks he dislikes Avery. The answer to that is: because of the way you act. Deacon likes Avery just fine, though not enough to give him a balloon every time he shows up looking for help. Scarlett asks why he'd tell Marilyn not to sign Avery, and Deacon is basically like, "She just wants to bang him." Or: "Marilyn only reps good looking guys under 30. She only signs them after a certain closeness has been established." Scarlett argues that Marilyn can't sleep with everyone she signs, but Deacon assures her that she does. Scarlett's cheeks droop with sadness and she gets very, very quiet.
