In Nashville’s Music Circle, Juliette films her music video for “Telescope,” creating a traffic jam that holds up Rayna & her daughters. As Rayna drives past, she realizes that Watty is right – Juliette is not a flash in the pan who’s going to be disappearing any time soon.
Later, as it’s clear the label will not be putting support behind Rayna’s new record and faltering tour, Watty suggests Rayna do a more intimate tour with just her and Deacon performing. Rayna is skeptical of that arrangement, as it’d mean singing love songs when they aren’t in love anymore. Teddy isn’t too happy with the idea of the smaller tour either. He asks Rayna to attend a campaign cocktail event and participate in a vulnerability study for the campaign.
At the Bluebird Café, Watty compliments Scarlett and Gunnar telling them they are naturals and he mistakes them for a romantic couple, which they laugh off. Watty then offers to produce a demo for them, which takes her by surprise, since she doesn’t consider herself a songwriter.
Scarlett walks in to her apartment excited to tell Avery the news. But because Avery just heard bad news, she supports him and holds back the Watty deal that she knows would make him feel worse.
